Next up on Voodoo Gold is the debut release by Aquarian Motion. ‘Beyond the Pillars of Hercules’ is a 9 track mixture of classic aquatic electro and deep mellow machine funk.
One of two very limited samplers of the Datafunk 2.0 project. Due to the project being considerably delayed a couple of artists pulled their tracks so Abstract Forms has decided to split the remainder of the project into two 12″ samplers instead.
Santiago Salazar’s slide project is back, bringing them crazy sliding bounce jams to funk up dancefloors worldwide, gangsta style.
Eye Can See The Darkness (In The End Of The Tunnel) is a shot of light in the dark cavern of a broken heart. Blinded By The Lights rips apart the heart-string orchestra rather than just pulling on the strings. A love ballad lost in the haze of the mid-summer, faded to blue and repackaged as a gentle and tender winter anthem. Sharing the A-side with the lucid dreaming of Jeremiah R on the drum-heavy remix. On the flip, I Am Not Him is a filter-squelching, bass-slapping meander into green haze territory, that finally erupts into a swagger of familiar Detroit-channeled drums and steady faded pads. Outernet grumbles up the black-hole cosmic radiation with an industrial-tinged number that plunges the depths of deep-space. Proper growling and clanging synths to add the right amount of raw, just at the end.
Only a few nuggets of information exist on The Valley and The Mountain. ‘Gentle Waters Keep Moving’ is the first full length outing from TVTM and their/his/her most absorbing work to date. Sharpened edges are rounded, 303 squawk softened and rhythms mellowed as ten tracks of melting music is served. The Detroit denizen calls on the sounds of the hometown. Techno is at the album’s heart but frosted touches of electro are present, warming acid twangs, house grooves with all being dipped in a refreshing undercurrent of electronica.
