Returning to Viewlexx sub-label Murder Capital, Gesloten Cirkel is ready to serve up a full-length album, Submit X. Russian mystery man Gesloten Cirkel has caused quite a stir with his releases on this label as well as Moustache Techno Series and Berceuse Heroique – it is often weird, twisted music that fuses acid and techno and electro into brave new forms. This new album continues in that tradition across ten new cuts. Right from the off Gesloten Circkel spits out the jams – opener ‘Zombiemachine Acid’ is built on a corrugated bed of beats, has slapping percussion and a sharp acid line. After the same track without the acid line comes ‘Submit X’ with its into fractured, loopy sounds and layered up vocal snippets. For unsettling, dark and droning ambient check ‘Stakapella’, or the same sketch with a distant electro beat on ‘Stakan’. ‘Chatters’ is then a grimy post punk electronic track with whirring melodies, malfunctioning synths and plenty of dirt in its make-up and the latter part of the album touches on more paranoid electro, nagging and unsettling techno and whip-snapping acid tracks. Truly unique, esoteric and idiosyncratic, this album is as unpredictable as you would expect from someone like the enigmatic Gesloten Cirkel.
Mark du Mosch is a Rotterdam based producer and DJ who has earned the highest amount of respect in the Dutch alternative music scene in the past couple of years. The reason is simple: he dares to go beyond the obvious, his raw yet emotional signature sound being distinctive, versatile and stunningly creative. Expect perfectly executed analogue bliss from a craftsman who is slowly yet steadily making his way into the records bags of global house and techno connoisseurs. From Russia with love; Moscow based cult producer Gesloten Cirkel kicks it up a notch with his rough-and-ready take on ‘Living Up’. Wailing synths, piston hi-hats and an everything but straight-to-the-point bassline make for an epic esoteric house jam.
The second release on Berceuse Heroique with 1 track by Gesloten Cirkel, remixed by Transportation AAD (Boddika and DRKSTRL) who construct a UK mix of sci-fi atmospherics and spooky, bubbling sheets of sound, with a chopped, asphyxial vocal sample signature Boddika and triple helpings of false-bottomed Metalheadz-style bass.
