JT Stewart – Ophelia [EVR007]

Best known for his releases across Bunker, Delsin, W.T. Recordings and more under the shark loving $tinkworx moniker, US producer JT Stewart is retaining the Drexciyan themes that ran through that recent 12inch while reining in some of the dread filled textures that permeated its every pore in favour of a more classicist take on the Detroit Utopian techno vision.

Crystal Maze – Dissolve EP [RHYTHM004]

The deepest techno act from Amsterdam with their deepest works so far. In three haunting and hypnotic analog techno jams Spaventi & G-string show us the beauty of darkness. Not sure which spirit possesed them that night but it was a nasty one! With their sparse 909 percussion and eerie synths they deliver techno how it once was intended: funky yet moody, seductive yet alienating… The Bio Rhythm continues.

The Crystal Ark – We Came To [DFA2339]

“We Came To” is the 4th single by The Crystal Ark, the developing collaboration between Gavin Russom & Viva Ruiz. The song is a dance music rally cry – profound in its bare bones and raw production,  and equally for the spanish/english lyrics –  which praise ancestors and call out for liberation. The “House” and “Dub” versions featured on the single were mixed alongside the album version, which will be released later this year as part of the self titled debut LP by The Crystal Ark on DFA Records
