Solar One Music presents the follow up to The Exaltics retrospective “The Truth 2008 – 2013” released early this year. Five of The Exaltics best tracks are revisit by ERP, Gosub, Dopplereffekt, Objekt, and Ultradyne. On the A side, E.R.P. aka Convextion turns the opener “My Language” into an emotive electro rework where sweet drums combine to soft synth layers. Followed by Ultradyne’s disturbing “Compressed Thoughts” remix, expect experimental electro beats and distorted modulations straight from Detroit. On the flipside, a SOM regular signature, Gosub injects on “IMOEH” a serious dose of electrofunk vibes. His classy remix gives a breath of fresh air while “Journey To Jupiter” reworked by Objekt propels you in orbit after an epic trip though space. Merging electro beats to groovy lines and contemporary synths colors, Dopplereffekt keeps the pressure: “Instinct” signs here a masterly conclusion to the EP.
Hypnagogia marks Dopplereffekt’s second appearance on Leisure System, following the Tetrahymena EP. This time the electro outfit has contributed one track, Delta Wave, which takes up the record’s A-side. Appearing on the flip is Berlin artist Objekt, whose mutant brand of bassy techno has appeared on labels like Hessle Audio and Power Vacuum. The label says the two efforts are ”borne of mutual inspiration” and were ”derived from a shared journey into extrasensory perception and subconscious thought.”
‘The Green Series’ is the continuing art and music project from Bleep.com, GiveUpArt, and photographer Shaun Bloodworth. The project will be a series of tracks exploring techno music released on limited 12″ with deluxe art prints as well as on digital formats. The second 12″ release in the series is called “BLPGRN002”. The double A-side single features the pairing of Objekt and Cosmin TRG and brings you raw techno.
Objekt drops the tempo and ups the Techno element for a killer second release on his/her eponymous imprint. Each side is demarcated by what might be a title in the run-out groove. A-side ‘I See Sound’ feeds us through a passage of cold, ricocheting delays and skittering dub stabs before precipitating Hood-esque hi-hats and propulsive kicks shackled to haughty snares. With adroit EQ’ing the track continues to wink and tease until a fully fledged final Chicago jack-out. B-side, ‘Where I See Numbers’ swings in that teched-out Untold style, but with a more wide-open Berlin atmosphere.
