FIT Siegel – Formula EP [FIT-025]

After five years of on-off collaborations and side projects, Aaron ‘FIT’ Siegel has finally got round to making a new solo record. The A-side “Exist On” delivers a brilliant blend of breakbeat-driven turn of the ’90s grooves, chunky bass, ultra-dreamy chords and the kind of bleeping top-end melodies. Title track “Formula” moves even further towards bleep techno territory via deep space chords, thumping techno beats, Kraftwerkian lead lines and the kind of distorted analogue bass found on LIES releases, while “Wayne County Stomp” sounds like a mutated, mind-altering cover of Steve Poindexter’s “Computer Madness”. Dedicated to those who find transcendence through music.

Diverse EP with sounds ranging from tripping acid workouts to dubbed out electronic excursions.

Jared Wilson – Ghost Miners Remixes [7777011]

“For the 11th release 7777 presents the Ghost Miners Remixes. For these remixes I offered each producer samples from different songs from the 2 Ghost Miners records. Instead of doing straight forward remixes of a single song, I put forth the proposal for each artist to make their own version of a Ghost Miners song from scratch or using any samples they feel like. Contributors include 3 of my favorite producers. 2 in demand artists; FIT Siegel and Andreas Gehm and one new comer; Brian Thrash. Andreas Gehm’s version is a standard acid Gehm gem. Calling in the chords from the originals mixed with standard Gehm acid brilliance. In FIT Siegel’s version you’ll find the perfect pure underground dance sound. Featuring Ray-7 on hand drums FIT constructs a remix that combines elements of classic Detroit and Chicago sound while keeping the attitude and acid aesthetic of the original material. On the B side Brian Thrash, controlling his analogue arsenal, takes you on an epic acid journey traversing through the underground and space.” Jared Wilson

Fit Siegel + Tim Love Lee – Living Is Serious Business [FIT014]

Fit Siegel – Carmine / First Found [FIT012]

A moody techno classic perfect for the lonely season. Subtle, low-key and thumping, the title track revolves around a bittersweet piano lead, elegiac 303 and Blade Runner string swells. It’s a high-tech driving song in the tradition of Model 500’s low-key classic ”Pick Up The Flow” and FIT sounds more assured than ever. ”First Found” is Mills-ian jigsaw puzzle techno imbued with breathy and addictive humanity. Stacatto, free-jazz informed piano solos lock into ping-pong synths — eventually, a female vocal emerges over a bed of arpeggiated bass. Loose yet robotic, ”First Found” is first-rate Detroit techno mysticism.

Fit Siegel – Cocomo / Seedbed [FIT010]

For his follow up to certified underground hits “Tonite” and “Enter the Fog”, Fit Siegel retains a firm embrace of both melody and rhythm. “Cocomo” is Siegel’s most delicate, and beautiful track to date. While, “Seedbed” snaps the listener back to the dancefloor with a syncopated acid earworm. For his label’s tenth release, Fit presents two fully-realized, divergent sounds, obviously able to harness the energy of his unpredictable DJ sets in the studio. This marks the return of one of Detroit’s most exciting young producers and further establishes Fit Sound as a hotbed of fearless dance music.
