VA – Wave Function Collapse [N2MU003]

‘N2MU003’ is focused on one of the most interesting enigmas around the quantum physics field, the wave function collapse. Wandering around quantic and Newtonian worlds, The Exaltics, Das Muster, Datawave, Module 3F, Promising Younster, Mönsul and Vronsky convey an homogeneous message, without losing sight of their creative individual characters.

VA – Stilleben 052 [STILLEBEN052]

Stilleben’s latest EP is a no-holds-barred, all-action affair that gathers together previously unheard cuts from a quintet of label associates. Boss man Luke Eargoggle is naturally involved, with his hook-up with Swedish veteran Ola Bergman – the angular analogue bass, Italo-disco influenced grooves and shimmering chords of “Macho Macho” – being amongst the EP’s many highlights. You’ll find more razor-sharp, mind-altering robo-bass propelling Das Muster’s brilliant opener “Sinnestauschung” towards the electro stratosphere, while IXRQ’s “Robotic Nature” brilliantly combines ghostly, crystalline synthesizer melodies with a suitably dirty, club-ready electro groove. The most intense and sweaty cut of the lot, though, is Suicider’s suitably dystopian and psychedelic closing cut “Trainwreck”.

Das Muster – Fehlersuche [BP001]

“Between Places” is the new sublabel from Solar One Music, because SOM set their focus more on Albums and all kinds of electronic music. The new “Between Places” Label will only have the focus on pure Electro Music from all different countries. First release comes from German Producer “Das Muster”.

VA – Blurred Angles [BT013]

Electro maestro Luke Eargoggle collaborates with some of his favorite producers creating an EP that delves into the many sides of Eargoggle. Eargoggle & The Hacker open the EP with a sleazy take on New Beat with Body. Eargoggle & Marco Bernardi are up next with trademark nagging basslines complete with fragmented weirdo speech and demented melodies for Rat Wire Chomp. On the flip Eargoggle joins forces with long term collaborator Rutherford for the driving emo Stalkers Behave. Closing the EP Das Muster goes in the for the kill with the metallic Starke.

VA – Time Capsule aka 808 Box [FR008]

808box

Madrid’s Fundamental Records not only release a high volume of contemporary electro, but they do so in fine style thanks to their overloaded packs and comprehensive compilations. This time they really done a number on us with this 808 Box release, a jaw-dropping fifty-tracker sealed in a trendy DJ shoulder bag tagged with the most infamous of all drum machines on the planet..! The music comes from all corners, and we see familiar faces laying down some truth on those beats; check the gear by Patronen, CPU, Alex Stark, Luke Eargoggle, Sync24, Tau Sagittarii and UHU.

Das Muster – Reaktionszeit EP [SOM034]

Marcus Mumm aka Das Muster returns to Solar One Music with the Reaktionszeit EP, the last part of the “Elektronische Werke” series. Authentic analogue action. Stepping up with five icicle grooves, here he flicks from unadulterated, droning paranoia (“Die Suche”) to Vibert-style acid bubbles (“Reaktionszeit”) via twist synth-bent drama (“Abgeschlossener Vorgang”) and Black Strobe proto techno (“Sendezentrale”). “Spaetfolgen” closes the show, taking us back to the icy alienating body funk he kicked off with. Immaculate darkness.

VA – Substanz 001 [RMR010]

Germany’s Robotmachine Records steps up with a gorgeous little collection of tracks by some new names in the game and delivers a fine lesson in electro-ridden foul-play. Das Muster’s “Immaterieller Export” is a noisy, Drexciyan blaster with all guns blazing, whereas “Astral Exit” by =UHU= is a spacier, more sci-fi kind of track – a glorious mashup of electro squalls and battleship sonics. Thomas Kress gives us “Fabelhafte Welt Der Anomalie”, another nasty and hard-hitting power-cut, whilst Bruno Binary’s “Binary Control” takes Kraftwerk-style robotics and adds a harder edge to create yet another floor-burner.

VA – Datafunk v1.0 [AFSLP001]

https://i0.wp.com/imagescdn.juno.co.uk/300/CS503667-01A-MED.jpg

Adventurous electro project featuring a what might be regarded as a who’s-who in the current electro scene, reeling-in names such as DJ Stingray, DMX Krew, Ian Martin, Shemale, Elec Pt.1; with perhaps lesser known talents such as Linear Synthesis, Federico Leocata, Koova and Das Muster. A fine selection of tracks which successfully presents fresh sounds by tried-and-tested names, while simultaneously introducing upcoming and arguably lesser known, but by no means any less talented artists.
