foul & sunk, the swiss-german house-imprint based in freiburg and zurich, rings the bells for round 4 with the eriswil ep by jagged, a spunky release that blushes your cheeks like a strong sip of bernese apple brandy. and bern is the code word that sheds light on the origin of jagged: behind the name hide three veterans of the swiss house music scene - the djs and producers benfay, jay sanders and zukie173, who emerge from the vicinity of the now discontinued freestyle label a few among others, whose founder was zukie173. as jagged, they are releasing house music built upon hard-hitting drums, sinister bass lines and soul-drenched instrumentation for over four years by now. they debuted on quintessentials with hello kool nice in 2008, and didnt lose their gritty energy since then. now, theyre back on foul & sunk with eriswil, a deep rolling, dark monster that also gets a remix-treatment by the abstract eye
new material from las gifted & blessed, this time dropping on the uks eglo records under his the abstract eye guise.
a man of many names, the ever illusive musician / producer / dj / director can credit the likes of flora purim, airto moreira, sa ra creative partners, steve spacek, king britt and baatin among his collaborators. with a fetish for analog hardware, drum machines and synths, gbs sound techniques, range and versatility separate him from the pack.
if the eyes would be the mirror of the soul we could easily know others. but that may be not true so this is the aim of giorgio gigli and obtanes >the incredible tale of secret journey through your eyes<: penetrate your eyes and reach your soul and subconsce until we know your truth. psychoanalytic claims this time for zooloft, opening with an upbuilding, dramatic techno anthem, telling us of a true love on the hills. on the other side, geophones master mike parker delivers a pulsating and acidic techno driver where heart impulses are generated by a disturbed soul, creating spasms and panic feelings. the ep get closed by a strongly romantic drone track that tells us love is still the only way-out.
as a product of the legendary goodlife open mic sessions, abstract rude splashed onto the scene in 1994 as part of the famed project blowed crew that included la s freestyle fellowship and aceyalone. as one half of the a-team (with aceyalone), one third of haiku d etat (with aceyalone & myka 9) and frontman of his group abstract tribe unique (atu), ab rude has endeared himself to fans worldwide through consistent touring and genre defining albums such as 1999 s south central thynk tank (currently out of print). once signed to the beastie boys grand royal imprint, ab has readied himself to re-emerge with rhymesayers entertainment and his most consistent and focused work to date, rejuvenation. produced entirely by seattle super producer vitamin d (g-unit, redman, young buck, gift of gab, choklate, lifesavas, black sheep, etc.), rejuvenation is a hard hitting soulful ryde showcasing ab rude s distinct and unlimited vocal styling.
he second decade of abstract releases is coming closer with rapid strides. hardtechno with soul? krischmann & klingenbergs tracks are always something extraordinary and this is reason enough to sign their new zodiac signs ep for the nineteenth release on abstract. chosen as best newcomer 2008 no. 10 and best track no. 11 in the annual raveline poll these two guys are outstanding producers and needless to say a rockin act.
rmxs by eric sneo & space djz , abstract recs speed up their release-pipelines and the result is >getting time< by robert natus, a monster tune featuring fat synths, snapping basslines and everything a bangin record needs. an exclusive remix package has been also included, more precisely mixes by the london based space djz and palazzo hero eric sneo. while erics mix is a more techno oriented interpretation, jamie bissmire and ben long strike back with a jackin chicago influenced version. damn nice package. but wait, there is another track on top by mr. robert natus called >eye of the hurricane<, and be sure it sounds like the name suggests
