Sumerian Fleet – Pendulum [DE178]
Sumerian Fleet is a trio formed by Dutch producers Alden Tyrell and Mr Pauli, joined by Zarkoff after their 2010 debut EP. Sumerian Fleet have returned to release their sophomore LP ‘Pendulum’ of all new material as well as a remixed version of “This Game Has No Name” from Zarkoff’s other band, FFFC. ‘Pendulum’ contains 80’s Dark Wave/EBM inspired tracks with an industrial tinge, 8 songs of vintage dark electro with a Gothic tinge and a touch of bass guitar. The album’s been put together in a way that the listener can connect the dots, create a narrative, and become immersed in this attitude that the band’s trying to convey, such as Vigny’s idea of accepting despair: ”A calm despair, without angry convulsions or reproaches directed at heaven, is the essence of wisdom.” All songs were initially recorded at Mr Pauli’s studio in Den Haag, with overdubs and additional recordings at Zarkoff’s Sensorium Studio in Croatia, and then final mix downs at Alden Tyrell’s studio in Rotterdam.

A Visitor From Another Meaning – Lost Encounters I [BAP062]
A Visitor From Another Meaning returns to earth, and vinyl. The Viewlexx veteran is back on our world with Lost Encounters I, four cuts from the vaults. Beamed in from a distant galaxy is the blazing brilliance of “Dance of the Happy Shadows.” Past film score greats immediately come to mind. Vangelis. Carpenter. Moroder. “I Rarely Talk to Strangers” pulses with crisp beats and rumbling arpeggios, cloudy skies ready to rain on a polluted L.A. in 2019. The blue dot is left behind for the elation of “J is for Jupiter.” The stars are the place to be. “J is for Jupiter II” drifts from cosmic currents before illuminating the heavens for the lead out into end credits.

Clone’s label founder Serge with his buddy Alden Tyrell on the case with some hot jacking tracks. Like the rest of the Clone Jack For Daze series, House Countdown adheres slavishly to the ideals of Chicago. And while this may not be the most limitless arena for Clone founder Serge Verschuur’s return—apart from remixes, he’s been out of the production game for 15 years—the duo’s three jack tracks prove sound examples of refinement.
Joe Drive – Junopolis EP [4LUX1206]
Italian producer Joe Drive serves you his first EP for 4lux. Deep house tracks with a true analogue feel. ‘Rain Dance’ is an exquisite deep house bomb with smart TR707 drum programming, deep driving bassline and disco-ish vibes. Title song ‘Junopolis’ is dedicated to the legendary Juno synths and shows you capabilities of these machines in clever fashion. Alden Tyrell brings you the extremely deep remix for ‘Tefnut’: steady drum programming with spaced out synth filtering and dubby tape delays. This is one for the heads for sure. Joe Drives’ original is included too.
