TWR72 – Reflect Part 2 [FLOAT005]

Float Records first vinyl release is a fact. And what could be better then divide it in 2 parts. The first output reflects the second. Label owners TWR72 presents you ‘Reflect’. The 1st remix comes from Berlin based Markus Suckut. A subtle angle is taken on Reflect which makes the remix feel sustainable. Just the perfect remix to include in his impeccable oeuvre. All the way from Finland is analog devotee Samuli Kemppi, who takes care of the 2nd remix. Samuli creates a sudden tension with builds up until the very end. A001, from Amsterdam, turns the original Reflect into a obscure remix with an perplexing 2nd half. A001’s mysterious and quiet appearance is a paradox compare to his musical output. TWR72 closes the EP with the bonus track ‘Response’.

Len Faki & Markus Suckut – Skulls [FIGURE051]

Cover art - Len Faki & Markus Suckut: Skulls

Markus Suckut has become one of Figure’s key artists over the last few years. His early work on Figure SPC stood out as some of the young artist’s strongest productions around, while his debut full length LP, ‘DNA’ released on Figure in May 2013, saw a maturing producer proudly sticking to his talents. Those talents clearly lie in deadly, reduced basement techno, sub heavy, rough around the edges, yet highly accurate for the dancefloor. This meeting of minds then, is somewhat of a perfect match. Len Faki’s renowned high-end production and impressive back-catalogue provide the rock-solid foundations for the ‘Skulls’ EP. Over 4 tracks and 2 pieces of vinyl, the pair go deep into their influences and come up with an advanced, designed and suitably seismic sound. From the reduced and spaced cuts like ‘Skulls 1’ & ‘Skulls 3’, the pair offer contrasting textures and rolling percussion amidst a remarkably weighty bass-end. Fizzing hats and tripping technobleeps then complement a snaking, tribalist vibe in ‘Skulls 2’ which also comes with a straight-up Dub version.

Markus Suckut – DNA [FIGURELP001-3]

German producer Markus Suckut has built quite a following, thanks to his distinctive, raw and reduced modern techno sound. Now he presents his debut full length, ‘DNA’, on Figure. ‘DNA’ goes even further in making a statement on his sound. There’s something of the classic German minimal techno lifeblood flowing through this album, and over 11 tracks (8 on the the double vinyl release) we are guided through very precise, tense and effective exercises in basement techno minimalism.

Markus Suckut / Marcelus – 10 inch01 [REPITCH1001]

Repitch presents the new 10inch series. For the first time Repitch is releasing original tracks from new artists so it won’t be stuff from D.Carbone, Ascion and Shapednoise. The artists featured on this new 10inch series are Marcelus and Markus Suckut. On the A side, Markus Suckut delivers an epic techno track in a full oldschool spirit. The stomping broken beat is marked by a dark melody and a groan which take us back to 1995’s R&S golden age. Marcelus, on the B side, mantains the oldschool spirit of the release with a raw and mechanical floorburner that sounds like a powerful studio-session between an Industrial band and a modern Techno producer.

Mark Broom – Hypnotic Regression [ES013]

Edit-Select013 features a new track from Mark Broom and a heavyweight Edit Select remix. Expect more suspended alien terror and sub-aural rumblings from distant planets. Totally convulsive and burning with radioactivity. The original takes cues from Jeff Mills’ space exploration; spitting synths sit low in the mix while looping 3/4 arpeggios disorientate and hypnotise. A completely mechanized bassline chugs without missing a single beat. The Edit Select mix adds static hats and whirling, sweeping atmospheres which suggest we’re preparing to take off to another planet rather than explore the one we’re already on.

Developer & Truncate – Part One [MODULARZ008.1]

Cover art - Developer & Truncate: Part One

With his Modularz label becoming a firm bastion of unfiltered techno machinations, Developer sets about bombarding our senses with his productions and curations across two vinyl releases this month. For the first part, his own “Heated” rattles through an industrial landscape devoid of colour, instead populated by reverb decays and distant clangs of metal. The rest of the record is handed over to Truncate, whose “Diffraction” flips the script with a central melodic hook and a thoroughly austere beat. Jonas Kopp’s remix beefs up that same theme by doubling up the phrase and edging towards a peak time monster, while Markus Suckut takes things deeper and into a more house compatible realm.

Markus Suckut – SCKT 01 [SCKT0016]

Markus Suckuts new label SCKT is characterized best as reduced to the essential and well-textured. On the new label the producer will release only his own productions and thereby present the root of his own style. Designed for the endless flow, the sustained structure and the dreamy-spherical melodies of the releases contrast each other. The luscious substructure is complemented by merciless haunting basslines. This mixture distinguishes each track as flawless, modern Techno, whose steerful production is palpable in every second.
