Sistrum ventures ever deeper into the cold, dark nights of winter, conjuring the hidden warmth that lies within each waveform. Genesis Tracks showcases a collection of deep techno talents who aren’t afraid to stand their ground for purity of sound – featuring Modular One (Patrice Scott and Chris Mitchell), Johannes Volk, Marco Zenker, and Sharif Anderson.
Soulful, classic and futuristic tracks by Los Hermanos member Santiago Salazar on the dutch Fanzine Records.
After 20 years of experience, Gary Martin couldn’t resist a 12” that is also the 50th release for Teknotika: a label from Detroit that didn’t exactly stick with the game when it switched to the mp3 format. “Basking In Blackness” is a composition of textured broken beat then classic four on the floor old school soul.“Synthotika” is what would happen if a synthasizer could take over an orchestra. A track inspired by Detroit peers no doubt. “Every Bit As Beautiful” goes sensative deep house piano, a lil Latin percussion and soaring Eno-esque synths to top it off. The title is a bit sarcastic, let’s face it, there is no life after techno.
For those who traveled along all across the universe of techno music, for those who knows the meaning of not only classic but also mature sound of electronics. Sophisticated recipient open for frugal but at the same time full of greater meaning detail – even exacting listener looking for another sense than the sound itself only will be sure startled with its seemingly simple and raw forms. This is a musical journey starts right from the adventure. Kuba Sojka captures the essence of the genre and creates a coherent and harmonious whole thing. In subsequent works carrying the listener through controlled and straightforward wording, refined with deep emotions, which will certainly be felt strong by every enthusiast of not only modern dancefloors. Don t miss here a Daniels’ Knox aka D-Knox remix as well, some great piece of 20 years Michigan history can be found in here likewise.
