VA – 15 Years With Echocord [ECHOCORD071]

After 15 years in the game, Kenneth Christensen’s Echocord mark that achievement with an exclusive ten track compilation spanning their broadest parameters, from a beatless panorama by STL thru mesmerising dub techno from Deadbeat.  Along the way they present a clinical, squashed dub-stepper from Arovane, Struktur 1; the Detroit ghetto acid of Hoodmode by Luke Hess; purified dub suspension from Fluxion; and strangely enough, a vocal turn from Mike Dehnert in Track Providing Home.

VA – Panorama Bar 06 Part II [OTON082]

A second 12″ sampler for Ryan Elliott’s soon to drop Panorama Bar 06 mix opens with “Take It Slow”, a rugged house jam of the finest order from The Oliverwho Factory and proceeds to take in cuts from former label manager Nick Hoppner, Deadbeat, Dettmann and Sushitech mainstay Makam. Individually the standard of these exclusives is remarkably high and it will be interesting to see how Elliott has slotted them all together for the free to download mix. If we had to guess, Deadbeat’s superb glistening house burner “Woah” would make an appearance towards the end thanks to his high tempo, whilst Dettmann’s swirling layers of ambience on “Light” feel very much like a set opener.

New allure is breathed into Scuba’s originals. America’s totem of bass Faulty DL takes leave from the original ‘On Deck’ with a low burring bassline and elegantly woven melodies drawn warmly across the whole. South London’s Deadbeat offers an understated modern jungle remix of Before with skittering hats and heavy bass that can’t fail to light up floors and faces.

Deadbeat – Radio Rothko [AG052]

Deadbeat - Radio Rothko

Deadbeat will release a new mix CD called Radio Rothko on Brooklyn’s The Agriculture imprint later this year.
Comprising artists such as DeepChord, Monolake, Quantec and Pendle Coven, Radio Rothko presents a healthy mix of dub techno’s classics and contemporaries, with a notable emphasis on the work of Basic Channel’s Mark Ernestus and Moritz von Oswald. The mix takes advantage of the music’s spacious and atmospheric nature, bubbling up into a more dance floor-friendly centre before showcasing the dubbier end of the dub techno spectrum.
