after chris carrier’s amazing >addicting game< ep mouche returns with another strong ep. the second release of the label brings a varied ep full of bouncy. driving deep techno freshly cooked by finnish native tm shuffle. while document4 on a1 is a driving deep excursion into snowy landscapes of middle finland. the powerful chord-driven weapon drumman dub on a2 brings a lot of groove to all the dancefloors out there. the b-side takes a more relaxed stance: alone in dub (b1) - created with longtime-friend lauri leino – combines icy soundscapes with a deep dub bass. that mixture heats up things slowly and steadily. ruutana by night (b2) rounds up the package with moody. chilling beats and echoes floating around.
real name takeshi fukushima. takecha has been a key figure within japan’s electronic music scene for decades and belongs to the same pioneering crew as soichi terada and shinichiro yokota. now in his mid- fifties. ‘deep soundscapes’ is an album encompassing fukushima’s sound with every track written by the producer between 1990 and 2013. intricate percussion and crystalline chords set the tone in ‘deep drive’ before a funky bassline joins serene synths in ‘midnight things’. appearing in soichi terada’s mix for resident advisor (under its promo title ‘deep loop c’). ‘gradual atmosphere’ is comprised of a galloping beat and saccharine chimes. ‘factory 141’ sees takecha demonstrate a murkier aesthetic. whilst ‘rhodes detox’ is a definitive example of takecha’s flair for expertly balancing elements within his productions. an homage to shufflepuck café.. an old mac plus video game takecha would play on a black and white 9- inch monitor back in the day. ‘shufflepuck’ blends ghostly melodies with clicks. whirrs and pops. ‘calm imagination’ is a poignant affair from start to finish with its hypnotising atmosphere. contrasting to the more up-tempo ‘warm rondo’ with its soulful keys and purring low-end. tying it all together. ‘genuine innocence’ is a cut that takecha made two versions of. one with a solo from a pianist and another with more emphasis on the beat. the latter of which appears on this album.-
making a return to the scene after an extended hiatus is vuo records. who mark their reemergence with a no nonsense four tracker from newcomer shuffless.
the a1 launches with * gotta go*. a deep-rooted house track carried along by a dreamy synth and some proper retro feels. phonogenic jumps onboard with a deep and driving remix of * gotta go* on the a2. a real lights down moment.
* yössä* kicks off the b side. a mood focused jam that twists and turns between house and techno. the ep closes with another remix of * gotta go*. this time from tm shuffle. its a subtle but hypnotic tribal affair.
