8 years after his last visit to Full Pupp, DJ Sotofett returns, accompanied by Rex Ronny, to embodies a solid 7 track EP with a strong Sci-Fi pallet of Cosmic-Italo racers. “Epidermis” is not another conjectural Nu-Disco record but a strong Disco-Dub infused travel in rhythm and melody. The entirety of the EP is bound together by four Galactic synth tracks and three driving Disco cuts, all with an individual approach. It’s a solid nod to the excellence producers of Italian Disco and UK left-of-center dance music has taught us since the late 70’s.
Finnish multi instrumentalist Jaakko Eino Kalevi & Norwegian producer Han Sotofett (aka DJ Sotofett) teamed up with Estonian drummer Andres Lõo on the “Jazzsomdub” album for a wide & improvised excursion within a narrow world of drums, percussion, saxophone, flutes, electric piano, monophonic synths and tape delays. Besides distinctively exploring Lõo and Kalevi’s batterie & percussion work with deep-listening quality drum mixes there are elements of impulsive beauty, particularly on “Essens” free carrying sax solo. The album partly reaches for well known directions of jazz in the vain of the cosmic, psychedelic, improvised, atonal and spiritual, but the particularness lies within the rhythm & mix – like a rubber band stretched in 4 dimensions.
V.C.V.S. was founded by Irakli Shonia and Sandro Kozmanishvili in Tbilisi, in 2016. After spending considerable time together in the studio, the debut CD album ‘Sections from the Imaginary Future’ was released in May 2017 on label ‘Hanker”, containing more ambient/experimental music. After two intense years, Irakli and Sandro found new inspirations and ideas, which led them to return to the studio and record the EP called Hum in August 2018. DJ Sotofett made a variation of “Trapped in the Corner” together with Kalifornia Keke.
FIT Siegel and DJ Sotofett join together on their first 12″ collaboration as S & M Trading Co. – a voyage many years in the making. Dark and atmospheric strings sail over a thumping bass line, all while a banging 909 beat and percussions keep this ship on course. The route is long, the conditions are rough,but soon a mysterious landscape beings to take shape beyond the haze. *12″ also contains Acidic and Synthetic mixes.
It’s astonishing to think that Frak’s Borft Records has now notched up three decades. The Swedish imprint remains as eccentric and essential as ever, as this label debut from inspired Norwegian oddball DJ Sotofett proves. By his standards, “Ol Pa Ibiza” and the stripped back “Ol Pa Klubb” are pretty straightforward, with the Sex Tags man laying ricocheting dub notes and percussion hits over a rock solid drum track and booming bassline. “Ol Pa SM-Art Bar” sees him channel the spirit of early British bleep techno and the darker end of Belgian new beat on a clandestine mid-tempo chugger, while “Drikkepause” is a quick-fire shot of ambience built around echoing bells. Finally, he heads for a dirty warehouse on the acid-laden, EBM informed sleaziness of “Nekta Ol Par City Club”.
With tickering hi-hats leading the first tracks on both side A & B Skymax enters a familier Finnish sounding disco (and part rock) sphere with kraut elemtents, synth-bass, a DJ Sotofett dub, a tango-fied slow machine ballad and a beatless 80s soundtrack conclusion to round it off. It has that utterly great and little-bit-hard-to-swallow Finnish quality stamp.
Original mesmerising house tune with Sotofett jungle-revival treatments.
Epic drum machine jams for the adventurous DJ Sotofett, with a nice Latina vocal by Fran Benitez on the A side to help usher in the spring. Pure original House magic.
Sweden’s (almost) unknown techno veterans Börft Records we have played and seeded wizely through out the years – to be honest, we’ve hid their treasures for years too. Forget all you know about Swedish electronic music, this is Börft crew, the core underground of ”söta bror’s” techno history – here represented by Frak – a full out techno acid punch. The EP is including a beautiful Dj Sotofett remix.
Norwegian Sex Tags Mania offspring-label wANIA presents a very special, off-schedule and limited Wania-US-edition. A-side with a disco-house jab from the usually spaced out Trance Yo Lie. B-side giving full-side-space to dj Sotofett’s NYC Dub Mix – an unreleased house remix of Madteo’s ”We Do…”!
Top-quality remix action right here: from acid romantics to reggae house, by Nicholas remaining in his realm of deep and heavy house music, Rotciv and DJ Sotofett at the controls on ‘Harmonize’ which gets the jungle boogie treatment, 808 State dubbing, a house shuffle and proper synth breakdowns. Almost 12 minutes of soundbwoy contemplation including a proper dancehall shout out towards the end.
All the tracks here are based around the 909 – thunderous kickdrums and sharp, hissing hi-hats that cut through the mix. Still, there’s a broad range of sounds, from head-down, fists-clenched warehouse workouts with an industrial edge, to more melodic tracks with Detroit references aplenty. Good honest techno with a real raw live feel.
Selected by Acido Records’ Dynamo Dreesen, five tracks feat. the talents of Bjørn Torske, Sensational and Tim ”Love” Lee all remixed and prod. by DJ Sotofett. In the times of cheap loops this 12” purifyes the old school dee-jay attitude with the coherent limitations of record jugling, remixing, archive digging and intuitive live studio recordings.
