next out on the ownlife imprint, a remix ep of what so far has been one of the most acclaimed releases from the label, the collaboration between leiras and svreca titled “the bridges i burn”. four well-known names to the electronic music scene has been invited to infuse their own characteristic sound onto the original tracks of own009. first out covering the a side is spanish reeko who skilfully plays with the rhythm tones, the main bleep synth sounds and his unique and particular way of texturizing the layers. a2, signed by british volte-face, gives the perfect balance between sounds and silence in a mysterious spaced out interpretation of “tilling ceramics”. flipping the record you will find new york veteran producer shawn o’sullivan under his 400ppm moniker, developing the structure of the track in a smooth way, melting the modular synthesis with the atmospheres found in the original version. last to contribute with his unlimited talent is swedish acronym, ho delivers an intense, tribalistic, spiral-maker remix, wrapping up this four tracker in the best possible way.
the italian dj and producer viels is the perfect example of a promising artist who has earned his stripes in the scene. his first contribution to dynamic reflection was a single track on a va two years ago, then a solo ep on the nursery last year and now it s time for his first well-earned vinyl called distrophism. although his sound has matured over the years, he has never compromised as far as his straight forward sound goes. circular, the a1, is the best possible example of that. the continuous drive keeps it going for well over seven minutes, without ever becoming superficial or dull. the b-side extends to other sides of his musical spectrum by making use of more drone-like, hypnotic elements. beside these three convincing originals, spanish heavyweight svreca jumps in for a remix of circular, completing the variance of styles. needless to say, this new release, proves that viels as an artist and this ep in particular, are forces to be reckoned with.
pun kuyen (moon night) is the second ep of the nguillatun records label. auca immerses us in this album with a first track, curico (black water), with a techno from the depths of the water, dark hypnotism and pulsating loop. puken (winter) is full of cold atmospheres and suspended drones that create tension. lanahue (lost soul) closes the album with a strong and intense original version, and a remix with low frequencies and beats that takes us almost to the mental disconnection, from the hand of svreca, to take our breath away.
first collaborative ep from the ownlife chronicles. the point between the mind behind semantica records, or what is the same. svreca. joining forces with the label owner. leiras. another four tracker shaping the cyclical, repetitive and deep sound characteristic from the series.
italian label spazio disponibile continues its fine run of form with a new ep that features four collaborative tracks by the bosses voices from the lake (aka donato dozzy and neel) versus semantica boss svreca. the ep is a result of their first studio session all together in rome. all three have been perfecting cinematic ambient techno for years now and have the cerebral, atmospheric aesthetic down to a tee. here they offer up proof across a series of hypnotic tracks that take you deep into your own mind. it s alien and abstract yet wholly consuming and will zone you out in no time.
rhythm büro is a new record label based out of kiev, ukraine started by dj and promoter igor glushko. the büro first began as a local party series organised by igor, alexander pavlenko (aka na nich, widely known in the drum’n’bass world as sunchase) and vera logdanidi (aka vero). since the party’s beginning in march 2015, rhythm büro has hosted such greats as zadig, abdulla rashim, etapp kyle, eric cloutier, woo york, artefakt, acronym, steve bicknell and actress all at different non-club warehouse-like locations around kiev. a peculiar aspect of the rhythm büro team’s objective has been to maintain secrecy about the exact location of the party until a day prior to the event, when ticket buyers are then informed about the location via text message or email. the label was started to be the logical and progressive extension to what rhythm büro has established itself to be locally: one of ukraine’s prominent techno initiatives. for the first release of the label, na nich and vero have contributed two joint-produced tracks that are to become their first publicly available material under their current aliases. while a1 leans itself to the soundscape that is more or less typical for rhythm büro parties: trippy, hypnotic and transportive techno, a2 hits the floor with refreshing zeal, bringing an electro-esque break-beat under deep and emotive synth layers. the b side contains two remixes of the title track, one of which is thoroughly tailored by the dutch-born-berlin-based-duo, artefakt (mostly known for their releases on delsin, prologue and field) as well as a strong and heady remix by semantica records’ mastermind, svreca.
two cities renowned for some of finest underground techno europe has to offer. this time the fierce heat of madrid meets the icy cool of glasgow. hector oaks and sverca load the madrid side with some heavy ammunition to supercharge your prime time emotions while glasgows deepbass and edit select bring an eerie spaciousness and depth to the flip side, leaving you begging for more. this ep is not for the faint hearted.

bleed follow up their inaugural release, by volte-face, which received plays and praise from the likes of dvs1, pangaea, luke slater, marcel fengler, blawan, erol alkan and anthony parasole. rote is a debutant artist, formed by volte-face and daniel avery, best known for his lp drone logic , widely considered to be one of the breakthrough dance albums of the last decade. rote is a project with no precise mission statement. the goal is to approach each studio session with a fresh impetus, to release club eps with minimal fanfare and fuss. the ep features two densely atmospheric, peak-time techno tracks as well as remixes from semantica head svreca, and arguably the most prominent contemporary techno artist in japan, dj nobu. a small pool of djs have received the tracks ahead of promo, with early support from nina kraviz, dvs1, silent servant, tripeo, ryan james ford, jp enfant, distant echoes and samuli kemppi
we are back with the third release, from labels boss p.e.a.r.l. and his four cardinal ep. two original tracks all together with an excellent remix from none other than the semanticas label boss, svreca.
entitled narita, the release is inspired by, and dedicated to, japan, and the tracks are a collage of all the experiences and emotions the producer has picked up there whilst on his travels. this release was also due to be the 44th on the label (which has now made it up to number 67) and so has clearly been cooking for a long time. once again it proves the man behind it to be focused on stripped back and hypnotic grooves, shadowy textures and subliminal synths that are abstract and truly heady. up first, sleepless is a spooky and hypnotic techno roller with icy pads and rubber drums that roll on like a haunted midnight train burrowning deep into your brain. ebisu is even more reserved, with just a light, skipping kick and tinkling, glassy keys suspending you in a wide open space of abstract atmospheric soun d. on th e flip side, mountain splitter is more urgent and immediate, with nervy pads this time racing alongside woodpecker precision and supple drums. it s heady stuff that really distracts you from the world before finally trance is a wash of grainy white noise and groaning synths that soundtrack a word deep down in the depths of the ocean. svreca is a master of getting deep inside both body and brain and does so in different but captivating ways with all four of these cuts.
the medieval alchemists were obsessed with anti-poles, often exploring the possibilities to mix substances and energies together that were considered to belong to opposite elements, trying to merge them into new, higher forms. sometimes with impressive results that have effected the development of modern chemistry and medicine
