Curtis Electronix delivers the second release. 4 originals from one of the most remarkable and reliable artists in the game, Rotterdam dungeon master DJ Overdose. The A side drops two club ready electro tracks molded with his unique cyberfunk style, punchy analog drums, heavy dystopian basslines and gently spaced out melodies. On the flip side things turn into a murky slow tempo affair. Industrial solid drums and distorted sonic grounds will turn your captivating journey into a dark machine odyssey.

Endfest – Mariahoeve EP [CCR002]

Cobra Club’s second release, Mariahoeve EP comes directly from the magic hands of Endfest. The EP is  supported with amazing remixes by Mark du Mosch and Dj Overdose as Rotterhague. Meeting Mr Magpie on the A-Side starts it of by hitting you hard with a straight up Gloomy beast of an Electro track, the remix by Mark Du mosch takes this track to another dimension stretching it out and adding his much loved vibe to it. On the B-side the dreamy and at moments even poppy Electro jam makes you want to take Bus 53 straight to the sandy shore of Scheveningen. Dj Overdose’s Rotterhague remix flips it into a street version that has more of a link to harbour of Rotterdam than the beach of Scheveningen. Both sides come with a short version of the full length track ”Drank”.

Dj Overdose – Feeding The Fad [UTTU074]

Label-hopping Dutchman DJ Overdose can usually be relied upon to bring the goods. Happily, he’s in fine form on this first solo Unknown to the Unknown appearance since 2015’s fantastic Housejam Freaker. Wisely, he’s decided to steer clear of well-worn retro-futurist cliches (jungle breaks, hardcore revivalism and so on), instead delivering a trio of raw cuts that blend elements of electro, 1990 style European techno and blistering acid house. Flipside “Probably Too Commercial”, a rough-and-ready dose of distorted, high octane electro smothered in alien electronics, is probably the pick of the bunch, though sweaty, stab-tastic opener “Feeding The Fad” – all razor-sharp electronic riffs, wayward drum machine beats and old school vocal samples – also impresses.

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.

facebook event

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.

HAEX-HRLL – Further From The Truth LP [GDLP007]

Welcome to a science fiction nightmare helmed by the legend that is DJ Overdose. Alien prey, DNA in test tubes. Who is being regrown? Will the town survive? Who has been replaced? In these present times of truth vs fiction it’s easy to become paranoid. We have the soundtrack HAEX-HRLL’s Further From The Truth: An abductee saga by replicons from beyond the moon. Chiming in between hot electro, Vangelis dream scapes, XTRO drone. This is one of OD’s most fascinating records to date. Art by a mysterious figure.

J. Mono – Zzz [DD003]

On its third vinyl release Dalmata Daniel presents five originals of J.Mono with an additional remix made by DJ Overdose. Hailing from East-Central Hungary’s small town Lajosmizse, Lori Keresztes is the introverted songcrafter-synthjammer mastermind of the Budapest based underground favourite Wedding Acid Group trio. As J.Mono he stands alone leaning on his machines, making way for his internal world, heart and soul. His first solo release Zzz is troubled and playful at the same time, with moments of electro-acid vibes and post-wave-italo sensibility, tracks that are wonderfully dark even with a light shade of ebm or just softly layered ambient melancholic technoids that make us all the children of Aphex Twin’s SAW 85-92 for three minutes.
