12" Vinyl D
Joel Mull on the Leipzig based label Distillery.
After already dropping one cut on our all-encompassing initial compilation, celebrating 25 years of the club, we're happy to announce Joel Mull's follow up and first solo release on Distillery Records. Mull is an always welcome Tille-regular, one of the most prominent ambassadors of the Swedish Techno sound and a versatile producer that's constantly churning out high profile material since the mid 90ies. A cachet that's underpinned by this batch of tunes, kicking off with "Magnetum", an Industrially tinged blend of Techno, building on filtered polyrhythmic elements, a swelling bass and subtly implemented pads. He's going for an arrangement that's eschewing overcomplexity, in order to boost an utmost force on the dance floor. Next up is "Momentum" that sonically ventures down to even deeper levels of machine room ambience, emitting wafting plumes of bass, being flared by flashes of sawing clangs and pushed forward by a synth- based micro-theme that's wandering through filter-modulations. A massive big room weapon. "Connected" comes embedded in crackling and rustling soundscapes, but make no mistake, its kickdrum is out to blow off any sonic haze to make way for an Acid theme that slowly emerges from ambush. This very tune gets a remix treatment by none other than Mathimidori aka Mathias Kaden who's turning the character of the tune into a rather chilled out, groove accenting, Dub- resonating state of matter. The digital package then also features "Continuous Symmetry" as a bonus track, that's upping the ante again, yet appears a bit more leftfield in this cycle of Mulls new material. [info from label]
