Disco Nihilist’s music production rejects PCs decked with sleek software and infinite options. Instead he chooses to operate within the parameters of dated, hands-on music technology. This is not art made for the sake of process or equipment fetishism, but rather a real human interaction with the instruments at hand.
Second release on the Pattern Repeat Label is another collaboration between Kenneth Christiansen, Echocord label boss and Resoe. According to the label this is the sound of “modern” Berlin Techno, Dubstep and Dub-Techno all put together in the blender. Two tracks of dusty, underground techno that will appeal to fans of the Berghain sound – gritty to the bone and dubby in a indirect sort of way.
Tevo Howard is surely The New Unsung Hero Of Chicago House Music ! He is one of the few able to inject soul into a scene that is often at risk of sounding flat and two-dimensional. ‘Kisses from New York With Love’ and ‘Boing Pop’ are Warm and Emotional with a Raw and Hypnotic vibe. Authentic deep house with a touch of acid, rememberings of Phuture Trax, perfectly recreated by Tevo with the same kind of intensity as its inventors.
