Officine Di Efesto is the latest 12″slab from Svreca’s ever on-point Semantica featuring remixes of two uncredited tracks from Donato Dozzy and Naples duo Retina.It, and the lack of further information doesn’t lessen the sonic impact. Dozzy features on the A-side, with his remix of “Automa Talos” a potent exercise in unrelenting techno hypnosis with a strange looped sound that is weirdly reminiscent of ducks quacking present throughout. The Retina.It take on “Automa Pandora” is a much more stripped back, minimal affair that is just as effective.
Darkmatter Inc.is an overlay network that can only be accessed with specific mindset, configurations, or authorization, often using non-standard communications protocols and ports. All Killer No Filler is the first release that comes to surface after long development in the hidden spots of the internet.
Midgar delivers a new release by Wata Igarashi. Ciphers EP is a rich assemblage of deep sonic excursions showing throughout a strong coexistence of organic and virtual elements. The record opens with ´Ciphers´, where a fast paced sandy groove is driving high on drones via sparking ambiances. Second track, ´Hailstones´ is basically a beat knocking its way outside, under a heavy hi-hat hail, slashed by snares and haunted by holographic spirits. On the B-side ´Lucifero´ carries a mellow but powerful mood, sounds like a morning star that gradually transforms into a supernova, is definitely the more dancefloor oriented cut of the release. Closing the vinyl, the slow-footed ´Cocytus´ is the complete opposite of its previous track, because of a cold, grave rhythm, treated like a windswept tree.
Fossil Archive rolls with its 4th release. With Fossil Archive’s previous release featuring as “Tune of The Month” on Mixmag’s Techno Page, this next two-part ensemble sees two very different tracks (‘Calyptraphorus’ by Voiski & ‘Velatus’ by Roberto) leave you with little doubt that Fossil Archive remains inspired to be at the forefront of all things techno.
