Griessmühle Weekend Ahead

This weekend we are heading again to Berlin for a quality and diverse music cure. It’s been 2 years already since our last visit to the techno city, so we will try to make the best of it, as always.

This time will be a first as we will spend out entire weekend in the same club. Griessmühle has lined up some great artists this weekend, so we decided to make it our home until in the late hours of the Monday morning.

Friday night we will have Bleak, Johannes Volk and Savas Pascalidis in the techno room and DJ Overdose and Hakim Murphy for some electro and acid in the second room.

Saturday is the main night for us when the things start to get deep & sick. In one room we will have L.I.E.S.’ Florian Kupfer and AN-i aka Lee Douglas from Cititrax and our personal favorite June. Doug Lee played last November in Bucharest and we were raving, so we have great expectations. In the other room house and techno will be spinned by Zadig with his new side project Kern Space Adventures, Daniela la Luz live and Tallmen.785.

Griessmühle Weekend Ahead

Bleak – Bloodline EP [TR006]

Technorama is back with a new release by Swedish techno producer Santiago Naura aka Bleak. His personal style of techno is of the deep, hypnotic,hardware-based variety ; that engulfs you and never let´s you go. Here you can find three brilliant mixes, a real package of hard driving, deep, raw and analog techno bombs, including a powerful remix by upcoming talent Stefan Vincent.

Bleak – Inquisition [NR001]

The debut release for Naura Records comes from Bleak. “Rampage” is an explosive toolish techno tune, that submerges in a dark but atmosferic radiance with heavy pulsating drums and bass lines that engulfes into total deepness. “Chase” on the flippside is another straight forward thinking production, that overcomes with overdimensional chords and with an intelligent funky sequence that wraps you in again and again.

17 years after first releasing a cassette EP from label boss Marsel van der Wielen under his Peel Seamus guise, Delsin has now hit the landmark category number of 100. Truth is, taking into account choice re-issues and specials such as the recent house series, there have already been scores more than 100 releases. Nevertheless, in that time the Dutch label has become synonymous with a wide range of timeless sounds from house to techno to dub to electronica, nurturing and championing some of the most respected names in the scene, all of which can now be enjoyed on 5 separate, various artist vinyl EPs or one impressive two disc compilation. Far from just a collection of tracks, the 100DSR compilation has been carefully curated to tell the tale of Delsin. Each record conveys a slightly different part of the story – be it house, techno, beats or electro – yet every one is tied together by the label’s own underlying sense of desolate melancholy. Across the five EPs and complete CD collection there are tracks from newbies and old favourites alike, including Sawlin and Delta Funktionen, John Beltran and Bleak, Redshape and Convextion, Gerry Read and Claro Intelecto.

Bleak – Origins Of Chaos [97DSR]

Origins Of Chaos

Sweden’s Bleak is fast becoming an essential part of his country’s techno new school. Through releases on Deeply Rooted House, Sudden Drop and Traut he has emerged as a producer of funky, loopy techno a la countrymen Skudge. Here he debuts on Delsin with a fierce two tracker, Origins of Chaos. The first track ‘Sixteen Crude’ is a cantering techno cut with searing, warbling synths racing along above lazier, underlapping kicks. It’s a nice contrast that gives the acidic track plenty of depth, before the flipside, ‘Subject Target’ deals in more convoluted, whip-snap lines that thrash about like cables in a storm. Industrial yet human, it’s timeless techno that wraps you up in its midst and never lets you go.

Bleak – Disfunktion EP [DRH039]

Cover art - Bleak: Disfunktion EP

The second Bleak release on Deeply Rooted House. DJ Deep: “I have been very impressed with Bleak’s talent and how he can combine different styles of techno and still produce very personal music. Each track, in my opinion, has a life of it’s own, it starts in a certain way, and takes you to different places. The arrangements are very subtle, sometimes hypnotic, very intense and emotional, the way the drums evolve and drive the tracks, or how deep chords apear in the back ground taking the track to a differrent territory etc. I hope you’ll like this 12” as much as I do!’

Sudden Drop step it up a gear for their 1st release of 2011 with newcomer Bleak providing a double header of beats. ‘Isolated’ kicks things off in fine style with sleek, super phatt beats and a serious amount of pace. Throw in some tight production technique, a serious attention to groove and a fine palette of sounds and you have an impressive addition to any techno minded dj’s record box.
