Santiago Salazar – Galatic Stomp EP [FB013]

Following a five-year hiatus the #Stockholm based label, Finest Blend makes its return. With previous releases from the likes of Orlando Voorn, Shawn Rudiman, Terence Dixon and label head, Kenny Black it became synonymous with hi-tech grooves, breaking barriers, crossing genres and developing new ones. For its re-launch Finest Blend turns to Santiago Salazar with three tracks of his characteristic house / techno sound. His new EP for Finest Blend opens with the upbeat ‘Galactic Stomp’ full of shimmering flourishes and a tough bassline, before the funked-up shuffle of ‘The Twang’ makes its hit, ending with the spacey electronics of ‘3000 Northend’.

Staffan Linzatti – The Slight but Dramatic Difference [EVENT0007]

Staffan Linzatti returns for his second release on Chronicle with another uncompromising selection of linear techno constructions sculpted with an unfaltering vision of how hypnotic body music can transcend simple rhythmic needs. Icy atmospherics and razor-sharp production make for one of the strongest manifestations of Linzatti’s distinctive sound.
