Alek Stark’s attention to detail in everything he does is particularly apparent in his music – his tracks are all first class analogue electro. He pulls no punches on this E.P. with heavy 808 percussion alongside a myriad of modular noise and synth workouts. Cold, robotic and reminiscent of early Psyche / BFC with deep chorused pads creating an off-world dystopian theme that runs throughout this release.
Time marches on with two Various Artist EPs to celebrate the 20th release on Lunar Disko Records. Eight tracks encompassing the modus operandi of the label since the beginnings… Part 1 features three Lunar Disko favourites in the form of John Heckle, 214, and VC-118A, alongside a label debut from upcoming Dublin producer Conan_ aka Conan O’ Donnell. Detroit influenced electro and techno on the A-side, while the B-side transports the listener into deeper electro soundscapes.
2017 Remastered version of FR004 b/w additional track “Let’s Bang”, taken from the original 1997’s Cybonic In Effect EP. Parental Advisory Frustrated Funk straight from the 313.
Anthiliawaters has set out to explore the cold and almost isolated unknown with their stunningly lush Detroit-influenced album. Warm, jazzy synth pads supplying a melodic counterpart to the softly crunching, electro-tinged beats. A solid home listening fare for the living room that draws parallels to the beautiful and mysterious world of Drexciya and almost continues the journey of the highly popular The Other People Place – “Lifestyles Of The Laptop Cafe”. Being an almost unseen digital only release since 2008, the time couldn’t be more perfect for a reissue for the vinyl lovers. Anthiliawaters will take you with them on their soundtrack to life. Making moments, not music for moments. Anthiliawaters is Gosub.
Nachtzug delivers captivating acid grooves over an analogue trackbed of I.D.M. elegancy. Leipzig’s Possblthings records which is linked to the Possblthings store are doing a stellar job after their first strong release by Robyrt Hecht. This 2nd release is guaranteed to warm your hardware-driven hearts with its multifaceted tracks from uplifting braindance to spaced-out electro. Fans of DMX Krew, MNLTH, CPU Records and the likes are in for a treat!
One of the two The Other People Place releases (the Warp full length and this 12). Drexciyan involvement in this classic release is obvious. One of the deepest and intense tracks with such a warm positive vibe. Flipside contains a track by Mystic Tribe. (not very mystical of course for those who know the history of Detroit techno. Unique track from a unique project… and there are not many projects with Tribe in its name. Their release on Retroactive is one Detroit techno collector items). One of those records that get you through the day. Re-issue on the Clone Aqualung Series with new artwork.
