metempsychosis vinyl 001 invites you to the sonic soundscapes of tapefeed along with a remix by vril. here. we are presented with the unfolding of both legend and reality. abstract and matter. sound and touch. a journey. a mythical trip into the japanese tale of amaterasu. goddess of the sun and susanoo. god of chaos narrated through the literature of pulsing drum kicks. transcendental snares and atmospheric drones. through the evolution of the tracks we are invited to retrace the steps taken by the gods from the darkness. disorder and dismay created by susanoo to the lucidity. light and ultimate return of order as the gleaming amaterasu re-emerges from her cave. this story. visualised by sound is to be perceived through the unrestrained movement of your body. in the same way the dawn goddess ame-no-uzume danced. luring the sun back into the sky. here. we ask you to let go. abandon yourself and embrace the dawn at the end of the eclipse.

trolldans once again opens its musical tome of fairy tales. this time featuring the gif-ted sound sculptor edanticonf. in his chapter of the trolldans volume. edanticonf presents us with the three crying fairies. it is a tale in four parts of desire and tears - as every good story should be. the first fairy tells us about a lake in the deep woods where a young princess called tuvstarr once lost her gold heart. no creature of the forest could convince the princess to let it go. and so she stayed there by the black lake until she turned into a beautiful flower. the second fairy tells us how the princess. before she lost her precious necklace. would ride like the wind through the forest on the back a grand elk. the princess loved the thrill and the elk loved the princess. vril steps in and actually lets us hear the noble elks heart racing from both the pace and his devotion to tuvstarr. the third fairy ends endanticonfs beautiful but melancholy tale with a glimmer of hope: by the darkest of lakes. the loveliest flo-wers grow. the end.

berghains marcel fengler presents the fifth installment in the clubs expanding mix series. marcel fengler has proved filling floors doesnt have to be about ticking boxes. the versatile mix is a perfect example of the type of dexterity. sensitivity and scope he possesses as a dj. these same attributes can be found in the work of the producers featured on this 12 sampler. a similarly dedicated dj and producer. peter van hoesens incredible axis mundi is a real modern opus. hoesens rich synth warblings and deep bass elements could raise hairs youd never even discovered before... talented duo reagenz aka move d and jonah sharp have had a productive year. and their exclusive track. the labyrinth. proves just that. leading us into a psychedelic dance of funk. dub and abstraction. this slow burning jam fits perfectly in the later stages of fenglers mix. the mysterious vril is behind the dirty. dusty releases appearing on the staub series from geigling. uv follows that convention in a pounding. searing filtered techno tool that explores many zones over its powerful 10 minute reign
this is the first part of staub (engl. dust) - a new series of giegling. which aims to release traditional techno music. dust because its about dusty tracks. if you consider the sound and the time of creation. the music of the first part is from 2003 and is produced by a guy. who disguises himself in the documents as vril. we discovered him in a secret subterranean archiv during the demolition of our hobby celler - the giegling. played and charted (top 7 . april 2010) by marcel dettmann (berlin)

rodhad’s debut album ‘anxious’ sees the artist step away from the dancefloor and further develop the narrative qualities of his beautiful soundscapes. it was the natural next step to present the sound he began cultivating with his recent eps “kinder der ringwelt” and “söhne der erde” as a full length lp. the experience the album is trying to convey is being thrown into a world that is ready to crush you.they have you with your back to the wall. and you are ready to give way to despair. will you be able fight back? how is it even possible? rodhad is the spearhead of a new generation of techno producers and djs. with his bass heavy grooves and dubby atmospheric soundscapes he is a sonic guide. knowing exactly where he wants to take the crowd. leading through the inexhaustible sounds of techno music in all its beauty and gloom. he fully immerses himself into the music. yet never loses himself. growing up in berlin’s rougher outskirts. as a teenager he was able to grasp the final flashings of berlin’s mythical nightlife of the 1990s at legendary places casino and ostgut. in the late 2000s the dystopian crew began their own series of parties and then the label with two seminal releases by rodhad. “1984” and “blindness”.

a1 - luc marianni - six synthetic suites (anno stamm remix) berlin producer anstam’s remix of six synthetic suites is quite a trip. the producer has crafted a dubbed-out version. almost sub aquatic in its sound design. structured around a murky but driving techno beat on which he layers marianni’s sounds. exotic instruments. unusual timbres. daring melodies and even slapped bass: the contrast between these sounds and stamm’s grayscale groove is powerful. a2 vril - synthetic suite giegling artist vril uses samples from marianni’s six synthetic suites released in 1986 to produce this lovely slab of dub techno. carefully crafted. this track is all about soft edges. with a kind of blurry and hazy vibe that permeates it. a sense of motion is conveyed by the sparse but efficient rhythmic section. with chords and melodic elements giving the impression of floating. with much more contrast and complexity than it might seem at first listen. this is beyond your usual dub techno cut. b1 luc marianni - six synthetic suites (margaret dygas remix) also based in berlin. margaret dygas’ own remix of six synthetic suites is a deconstructed affair. built around a half step groove. ready to be used creatively in dj sets. somewhere between an ambient excursion and a more rhythmic jam. the producer uses a sparse palette of hallucinogenic. dizzying sounds with a dash of eerie darkness that gives this version a melancholic. unsettling nature. words by edouard isar.

since it’s inception in 1991 on the streets of glasgow. soma records has stood for uncompromising quality of the highest level in every area it operates. stuart mcmillan & orde meikle formed slam during the acid house explosion in the late 80’s and then together with friends glenn gibbons & dave clarke they forged one of electronic music’s most widely known and well respected labels. with mcmillan & meikle as the figureheads with their slam project and influenced by the early detroit techno scene. soma quickly began to develop it’s own sound and with their eyes firmly fixed on a vision of the future. the team began the quest to instill their unquenchable thirst for electronic music into the world around them. soma quickly became an international brand as slam’s anthemic “positive education” brought about an electronic renaissance that saw the group thrust into the limelight and green lit the furious rise of the label.
