The Kraftjerkz compilation series “Machine Funk Is Our Game” is back with another installment. Volume 5 features some long-time players like Alonzo and DJ Di’jital, while also introducing some new names to the Kraftjerkz roster like Konerytmi, Zarcon, Cybereign (remixed by Mr. Kraftjerkz himself, Kid Ginseng) and Bart Karlos. There’s really no filler on Machine Funk is Our Game, Vol 5. It might even be the best installment of the compilation series yet. In terms of quality, this is electro at its finest, and any of these six tracks would enhance any late-night set.
The fourth volume of Kraftjerkz’s quintessential compilation series Machine Funk is Our Game is a master class in unapologetic electro. This cohesive comp offers a range of material, from minimal, expressive electro to hard-hitting cuts ideal for peak time floors. “Volume 4″ showcases a vibrant range of artists both fresh and seasoned, including the prolific Serotonin Records labelhead BPMF and Brooklyn-based, Miami-raised Alonzo, who consistently brings his roots and the soul of electro to the foreground. From the sultry, deep, melancholic electro of AFQ and Martial Canterel to the raw, slapping cuts of BPMF, Alonzo and Succisa, this comp delivers on multiple fronts. If you’re a fan of body-oriented machine funk, this one’s a no-brainer.”
The next strike on Zement will be by Alonzo who released on Kraftjerkz and W.T. Records. No discription needed. Six 808 bass music tracks straight from the bottom.
Phormix presents the 4th collection of works from various artists. Waves leds the Night elevates the exploration of the minimalist aesthetics in the soundscapes of non-trivial patterns and surfaces the artists creativity in-hand with the monastic possibilities elevate imagination.
When Cities Collide III features Lithium Parasites which is a project from former Ultradyne member Alex Lugo together with Alonzo. On this RotterHague release their combined strength brings out what sounds like dystopian cruising music. Watch those crumbled skylines pass by. DJ Overdose does what DJ Overdose does.
New York Electro residents meet Latvia. Diverse comp. EP with hot machine-funk tracks for real freaks only. Alonzo, a New York resident and Miami native brings the sub-bass and pocket calculator sounds. Dmitry Distant and Starpliktuve deliver eastern European hot, traditional electro. New York’s Chase Smith brings back a funky version of late 1990’s electro-disco. New York’s Kid Ginseng brings a combination of mid-1980s New York/LA electro to the table. This is a very diversely packed compilation EP with the loudness and depth typical of Kraftjerkz.
