A wonderful project new/old by Detroit Techno Legend Anthony Shakir on Kyle Hall’s label, featuring remastered tracks from the rare Shake out of print 12inch ”M3 Sessions” originally released by the, now defunct, legendary Detroit record shop ”Record Time’. Fortunately Wild Oats Label head Kyle Hall, and Detroit Legend Shake have now gotten together for the new full release of the record which also contains unreleased material from that very same DAT Tape. On the 7inch there are 2 secret little Locked Grooves ”GJ LKD” and ”FRCTBEAT 6LKD” making for both a fun and Functional DJ tool.
Ostgut Ton presents two remixes for PAS. Silent Servant transforms Bell Blocker to a slow burning hypnotic techno ride. For their remix The Black Dog combines their brooding melodics and dancefloor oriented production skills to create the perfect counterpart to the flipside of this 12”, somewhere between plain scary and profoundly deep.
Sect Records’ recent compilation It’s All For You showcased the exceptionally high standard of the label’s roster as well as introducing some talent to the world, and this, the first 12″ sampler from the album, selects three of the compilation’s finest tracks for vinyl treatment. Victor Martinez takes over the A-Side with “Dav To Dub”, combining heavily delayed chords filtered to breaking point, while a massive kick drum propels everything along, and a jazzy piano melody adds some subtle ambience. On the flip, D’Knox’s “I’m Sorry (remix)”, is a sparse number contrasting soothing chords with micro-loops which contain the spectre of disco, with a rapid rhythmic flutter and chittering melody at its core, while Fanon Flowers closes with “Invisible Life”, a murky production filled with chords that ripple like sheet metal over a flurry of 909 rimshots.
Second release on Analogue Solutions sublabel Suprawax, featuring two tracks by Eduardo de la Calle.
