Plural / Hakim Murphy – Split EP [AE202]

The second imprint of Another Earth is upon us and this time it’s all about proper Detroit techno combined with distorted left wing machine house. The label combines 2 acts together in a Split EP series which compliment each others sound. For the A-side Plural created 2 essential Detroit techno tracks. The A1 is a warm uplifting peak time bomb and the A2 has a darker vibe concentrated on the groove. The B-side hosts 2 tracks from the intriguing mind of Hakim Murphy. The B1 is a heavy distorted peak time house banger while the B2 is quite the opposite, deep and obscure.

FBK – Screaming Her Name [BAR006]

FBK aka Kevin Kennedy is a hardworking man, be it battling computers and machines when producing music or when going out there and getting job done. In either case, one things is certain – theres no messin’ around. He’s also one half of ‘The Fallen’ a duo performing live, showcasing their love for banging darker industrial/wave inspired techno. His pal James Johnson aka Plural, artist with release on legendary Metroplex label last year, provided great remix on this latest EP by Kevin under his FBK moniker for Barba Records. All three original tracks are long building, big room, grooving stompers with a lot of emotions that would fit in various sets pretty much at any time. To keep things entirely ‘D’ footed, the legend, the man of weird, beautiful, unique and reduced techno world – Terrence Dixon rounds things up with his hypnotic re-interpretation of title track.
