“The international electro and techno producer community has come together to raise money for two charities doing vital health work during the Covid-19 crisis – NHS Charities Together and Médecins Sans Frontières. The project began in April this year. The resulting release is an essential compendium of techno and electro featuring some of the most respected creators working in the genre including The Hacker, Radioactive Man, Anthony Rother, Delta Funktionen, John Selway, Carl Finlow, Kronos Device, and more than 120 more!”
Get on board 5 new space alchemists for the next level of “The Orbitants”! The “Panic Side” (Side A) refers to a synthetic melody transition from the beatless Heinrich Dressel’s intro, to the mystical drama “Source Reality”, a utopistic abstract-composition by Galaxian, who serving his anarchic vision of electronic music.
Falling into the wicked flash born from Foreign Sequence’s Oberheim.
Entering to the “Black Side” (Sibe B), the virus infected the system: it’s the Lake Haze electro hit! Spooky pads triggering the edgy arpeggio, body of the track.
Jensen Interceptor provides yet another one of his tipycal alien incursion with a cruel-core on a beat techno influenced.
Italian producers Teslasonic and Composite Profuse (aka. Heinrich Dressel) touch down on Berlin’s Mechatronica with a powerful and spacious electro record, splitting each side of the EP and remixing one another to full effect. The Breakout EP is an electrifying journey into their vision of electro, drawing on new inspiration and decades of musical output. From the dazzling cosmic funk of ‘Golden Sphere’ and ‘Teleforce’ to the strange and dark spheres of ‘Ausser Betrieb’ and ‘Thronic’, the two producers present a captivating outlook on the electro sound, bound to move bodies and transport minds.
With just a few days from the current year left, I’ve compiled a list of 20 albums from 2018 that I enjoyed this year. Among these I have to highlight the much anticipated Mutant Beat Dance debut album, the first ever album from Gerard Hanson under the E.R.P. project, a new Gerald Donald project and a compilation of unreleased Heinrich Mueller remixes, a Silent Servant follow-up on Hospital Productions, a very interesting Fred Ventura compilation of unreleased house tracks, a new Lebanon Hanover, the beautiful debut album of Curses, the impressive Eindkrak album and the debut album of the Romanian producer Șerb.
The list is compiled in chronological order.
Eindkrak – Brullend Staal [Unknown Precept]
From the whimsical resonance of the title piece, a sonic pathway through a verdant soundscape is laid. Gentle melodies caress and embrace before the road bends into shadows filled with dramatic twists and unseen dangers. Romantic moments are juxtaposed by triumphal chords and daring drums signalling immediate panic or outright victory. This is a woodland of divergent emotions, one where sounds give way to feelings and where Heinrich Dressel is the piper leading his followers through what can only be described as an unforgettable journey.
The legendary Heinrich Dressel and former Simonetti’s Goblin bass player Federico Amorosi, team up for the collaboration of the year. Crawling from freshly cracked tombs, dripping with ooze and bloodlust, these 8 tracks are the perfect soundtrack to some long lost Italian Zombie epic or Supernatural Giallo. Nods to the greats, from that perfect Italian prog-rock bass sound, to the atmospheres of Frizzi and the disco groove of Carpenter. Unashamed hardware worship with the X firmly burned into the flesh at the alter of Elka. Giallo Disco is proud to present this masterwork from two Italian greats.
