this killer 45 spotlights vassilis vassiliadis, the underdog from athens whos now ranked as number one in greek psychedelic laiko and tsiftetelli. the great flipside was not a difficult choice. a super rare and highly sought after anti-mod anthem (full lyrics + translation will appear on our forthcoming compilation) by vangelis perpiniadis, a reknown singer, composer and bouzouki player of the golden era of greek laika music.
with its tenth dmt release, philippe petit drops energovill, a big room techno bomb driven by a repetitive synth pad and a dreamy distorted saxophone line that will leave nobody indifferent. philippe then strips down the track even more to deliver a dub oriented, beat-heavy version of the track. on the other side, ubx127, from the figure stable, is on remix duties: he takes the key elements from philippe s versions and turns the title track into an unforgiving minimal techno attack. philippe closes the ep and reworks energovill once again, this time into a melodic, atmospheric and dreamy beatless version.
on its sophomore release, raar s bold mission of unbridled techno with a punk-rock ethos is continued in tracks from label co-founder maelstrom and newest family member, specialivery. opium wars sets a seething tone, deftly holding a line of tension as machines moan and shriek. focused yet dissonant, the discomfort continues to build without resolution, playing the edge but never grasping hold . diameter of recess starts under the skin in maelstrom s typified controlled chaos. as it grows, the track becomes both an aching roar and a needle-sharp, frenzied insistence, a feral yearning and a frustrated surrender. swiss italian carlo bernasconi is a man of many aliases, the most ferocious of which is specialivery. having eagerly taken up the challenge to push further than the original demos sent, dust detector subsystem is a demonstration of this, cumulating in -an extremely rare, compulsive mental movement- presented in both teeth-bared, club-optimized and more pensive beatless versions. it is with great pride and pleasure that we present the evolution of raar. it is our greatest hope that this work inspires and liberates its listeners. released on 12inch via the vinyl factory

in case you havent figured it out yet, kompakt loves tradition and as you know, we have had a longstanding affair with our beloved japanese producer extraordinaire hiroshi watanabe aka kaito. his 2009 full length trust (komcd74) showcased a deeper, more matured side to kaitos now classic sound.
so with every kaito album comes the custom - the beatless versions. that said, we proudly offer your ears and that was the way - watanabe effortlessly has brought together three of the lead tunes from trust through into the calm waters of his ambient bliss.
so you have and that was the way…kaito once again demonstrates his magic that goes on behind the beat.
