VA – Planet Rhythm Presents Tar Hallow [PRRUKLTDTAR]

Planet Rhythm teams up with Rotterdam techno operation TH Tar Hallow and releases a collection of tracks by artists that have frequently appeared on the cult label. Deep down westcoast electronics by respected artists such as Klankman, Charlton, labelboss Thanos Hana and Rhyw. Klankman opens up this 4-track VA with the ominous ”Can Not Use that Command On Overlapping Selections”. Berlin based Rotterdammer ”Charlon” follows up with the heavy arps and outgoing drums of ”Profiler”. Thanos Hana opens up the B side with the tough techno cut ”The Injury Pattern” and berlin based ”Rhyw” closes down the varied slice of vinyl with the moving ”MKFBTB”.

Yan Cook – XX LP [PRRUKBLK010]

It’s been a while since Planet Rhythm released an entire LP project. Who else to thread into album territories than Ukranian Planet Rhythm stalwart ”Yan Cook”. After releasing various efforts through the Rotterdam based imprint over the last few years, Yan Cook comes up with a double LP consisting of 2 discs with 2 tracks on each side. Whilst shifting between various sides of the Yan Cook identity the XX LP proves to be an effective and bulding package over mechanic Techno sounds with strong builds and exciting taints of FX.

Eduardo De La Calle – Adept Of The Light EP [PRRUKWHT005]

For the 5th installment in the Planet Rhythm White series, Spanish hardware icon ”Eduardo De La Calle” returns to Planet Rhythm with his ”Adept to the light EP”. ”TR3B Conspiracy” serves as the opener which combines odd rhythmic arps and subtly placed drum sequences to make a somewhat uncanny atmosphere. On the B side we find ”Ranchor Will Cut The Mood” which is a repetitive techno cut that should be useful for after hours. The Doubt Of The Unknown (B2) has a somewhat foreboding title. It’s a FX heavy synth jam that uses oddball synthesis and nicely placed FX chains that evolve throughout.

VA – Acid Planet EP [PRRUK103]

Another solid VA on the Planet Rhythm imprint. Usual suspect ‘Yan Cook’ opens up with the sturdy techno-cut ”Canyon”. Steve Parker delivers some hypnotic acid business. Boys of the moment TWR72 come up with an intrusive bit of strongarm Techno. Alderaan closes down this EP with his arp anthem Xem.
