Zwischenwelt – Paranormale Aktivitat [CAL007LP]

Zwischenwelt is a project combining the talents of former Drexciya member Heinrich Mueller, New York DJ and producer Susana Correia, Spanish producer Penelope Martin and vocalist Beta Evers. This is the first vinyl edition of this special project. A well executed audio-visual experience playing with the tension between machine and human vox. Musically rooted in the early 90’s lab-electro style that has been presented as Gesamtkuntwerk, further conceptualized and developed into an even more abstract but not any less powerful or less intense experience. Cold voices sonically merging with emotional machine sounds (or is it cold machine sounds merging with emotive vocal sounds?).

Jeremiah R. – Callisto [TABR033]

Tabernacle Records is exploring the outer reaches of Detroit-influenced techno, electro and ambient. Their latest outing is coming from Jeremiah R. Beginning with the floatation tank-in-space ambience of “Chorus”, Calisto sees the producer laying down a whopping eight cuts that variously touch in Drexciyan electro, Artificial Intelligence-era IDM, and hard-to-define hybrids that confirm the intergalactic potential of electronic music. Interestingly, the music is roughly equally split between horizontally inclined, beat-less explorations, surging dancefloor workouts, and the kind of mid ’90s home listening fodder that sits somewhere in between.

VA – Karl EP [LUN005]

With this straight electro EP the longtime connection between Stilleben’s own Luke Eargoggle and Lunatic became manifest. The innovator and his friends Kan3da and Weltwirtschaft bring four various and origin tracks that are kept together through the typical Stilleben sound, packed in a carefully screenprinted, Lunatic jacket. The producers show again their talent for bringing musical devices in harmonics and arrangement together with innovative ideas in this classic genre. Each track has its own, different moment on the dancefloor – pushing forward with Icelandic Lady and the remix of Ocean Movers the record delays with the deep meandering Die Ganze Welt on the b-side. Finally the remix of Jennifer Touch’s Astra with it’s disco-attitude reminds of their wide spectrum like shown in Eargoggle’s Monkeyshop project or Kan3da’s former release on AC Records.
