Abstract Division – Anybody is Nowhere EP [DREF044]

ABSTRACT DIVISION - Anybody Is Nowhere

A little more than 2 years ago, labelhead honchos Paul & Dave released their “Nobody is Anywhere EP” on their own imprint Dynamic Reflection. It was a statement about the status quo in the techno scene back then, where many artists didn’t know which way to go. Ironically enough, the contrary is very true as we speak. The “Anybody is Nowhere EP” responds to their previous work and reflects the uncomfortable time we are currently living in, driven by uncertainty. Even though these are not the happiest thoughts, the track titles show that there is hope left. “Emergence” is a very seductive but psychedelic trip towards “Discharge”, which feels like Abstract Division discharges themselves completely. The last track, “Polarise” points out the current divided society, which sets some doubtful thoughts about the future. Scandinavian rebel and Northern Electronics patron Anthony Linell provides his interpretation of the track “Emergence” and delivers a distinctive remix as only he can.

Jeroen Search – Identity Matrix EP [DREF029]

SEARCH, Jeroen - Identity Matrix EP

An Identity Matrix can be described as a special linear matrix in which all the right variables align to create a unique state of balance. An efficient, yet elegant equation, serving as a stable truth, on which new ideas can be founded a perfect analogy to the signature sound and philosophy that have made Jeroen Search one of the most sought after underground techno producers of this day. With four powerful tracks, all drenched in the signature analog Search-sound, the Identity Matrix EP delivers yet another timeless contribution to the Dynamic Reflection catalog. With the A-side featuring two driving dancefloor-oriented cuts, and the B-side exploring the more futuristic sounds of tomorrow, the Identity Matrix EP skillfully balances itself between tradition and innovation.

Abstract Division – Contemporary Spaces [DREF028]

ABSTRACT DIVISION - Contemporary Spaces

Reflection is beginning 2016 with the long awaited return of Abstract Division to their native imprint, by the release of their first ever double EP: Contemporary Spaces. Not set out to be an album, but certainly being more than just an EP, Contemporary Spaces explores the current state of techno, providing the listener with wayward and timeless pieces drawing their inspiration from the broad spectrum of electronic music. Yet, while each individual track stands in its own place and time within this spectrum, the EP as a whole compliments the diversity of past, present and future influences and styles. Contemporary Spaces is one of their most extensive and widely aimed projects to date and solely consists of original material.

Abstract Division – Metropolis [DREF025]

ABSTRACT DIVISION - Metropolis EP

To Abstract Division, the city of Detroit and its artists are a major source of inspiration. As such, they decided their newest Metropolis EP was to be a homage, a means of giving back. This special package includes an original track that keeps close to the spirit of melodic, rhythmic, minimalism Detroit is known for. It also features three very special remixes by close friends Oscar Mulero – under his Trolley Route alias – Function, who ups the darker ante and Marcel Fengler who infuses it with his trademark Berlin funk.

Abstract Division – Time and Perception Pt.1 [DREF016]

ABSTRACT DIVISION - Time & Perception Part 1

Paul Boex’s Dynamic Reflection imprint is continually growing in calibre with each release. Time & Perception Part 1 is the labels 16th title and fifth for Abstract Division, a collab between Boex and Dave Miller. The EP opens with “Fierce Tension”, which sees the duo bury their siren-sounding synths into a condensed wall of sinister force, while Shifted’s booming and reverb heavy remix annihilates much of the originals musicality, it unrelentingly bores a war path of linear techno championed by the likes of DVS1. On the flip, “Comprehend” is like being caught in a wind storm of flying bolts, rust and ripped roofing, while the EPs ambient track “Collision” squeaks and gurgles like a alien trapped at the bottom cave in a Ridley Scott film.

Eduardo De La Calle – Emerging Era EP [DREF015]

DE LA CALLE, Eduardo - Emerging Era EP

Two originals, Speedlight Speedmind and Dynamic Arrangements, complimented by a rework of ROD. The A-Sides minute soundscaping, Hood, Mills and Search-esque sounds, precise filtering and delicate accents throughout and the flipsides wicked Basic Channel-like stabs turn both originals into weapons. Classic techno done in an impeccable manner. ROD strips, shuffles and roughens Speedlight Speedmind up in his trademark get to the point fashion. Aimed at destroying any dancefloor RODs rework keeps the original close, but lets only its basic instincts deftly filter through at just the right moments. Bomb, its really that simple.
