Birth Of Frequency – The Spelling EP [POLEGROUP040]

Birth Of Frequency is back on Pole Group. Two original tracks of scientific and complex techno, plus two remixes by Oscar Mulero and Zadig. “The Spelling” is a multi-layered sequenced anthem made of countless synth sounds, a punchy kick and an hypnotic arrangement, for those heady moments on the dance floor. Paris techno founder Zadig remakes “The Spelling”. He adds hypnotising, devastating drum machines and makes the synth line grow and disappear wisely. “Gate” returns to medium tempos, fattens the sound and goes for a deeper discourse. A construction tool for clubby action. Oscar Mulero remakes “Gate” by twisting it completely, adding random step sequences and harmonies, giving the kick a secondary role, and focusing on the essence of the groove.

Oscar Mulero – Muscle and Mind [POLEGROUP031]

”Muscle and Mind is the return of Oscar Mulero to long plays, after Grey fades to Green and Black Propaganda. ‘Muscle’ and ‘mind’ may seem antagonistic terms in real life, but in terms of music they make sense together, especially when talking about techno. The coalition of introspection and abstraction is not incompatible with the rough and the percussive, and this album is a good example of this. The underlying message behind the title refers to the reflection of mental states in the body, the genesis of emotions where body and mind are managed by the sense of hearing. Throughout these twelve tracks, one can dive into the musical world of this producer whose discourse mutates in every album, always intricate, always meticulous. Darkness acts as a thread and repetition as hypnotic therapy. But now, he sets his usual hard sound aside and looks for a much more cared for and precise sound , where there is room even for a harmony and musicality that go hand in hand with danceability. The combination of atmospheres and rhythms is constant throughout the album. Each of the cuts has been prepared with few sonic elements. He takes elements away one by one, and keeps exclusively the necessary. A record that has been developed during endless hours in airports and travelling, absorbing influences from all over the planet. Made in solitude but surrounded by people who don’t know what you are really doing on that computer. To close the circle, the album was mixed in professional studio using solid state technology, which gives this work a unique warmth that cannot be achieved in a domestic environment.”

Exium – A Sensible Alternative To Emotion Remixes [POLEGROUP025]

Alternative to Emotion featuring reworks from Jonas Kopp, Silent Servant, Oscar Mulero and Tripeo. Four different points of view about real techno, from analogue workouts to modern techno vibes. Silent Servant is the first on duty, taking The 12th Planet as target, reverting it into an arpeggiated sythn monster, hypnotic, repetitive, reverberated, a perfect abstract mixing tool. Jonas Kopp uses subsonic warfare in his reconstruction, with a subterranean beat for starting that soon fills the space with an industrial beat and hi frequency drones…no jokes here. Oscar Mulero gives the remix from Massless Particle, flanged synths, clear kicks, a breathing beat and repetition as a therapy, subtle 808 claves and some hi frequency drones complete the menu. Last guest is Tripeo. The remix for Dronid shows the intrincate part of Tripeo’s mind, broken beats, sweeping ambient drones, synth bleeps and pads, an ideal intro track for serious techno sets.

Reeko / Architectural – The Blue Album [POLEGROUP018]

https://i0.wp.com/images.junostatic.com/300/CS507569-01A-MED.jpg

The Blue Album is Spanish producer Juan Rico’s new album. He is the mind behind Reeko and Architectural, two projects that on this occasion melt into one offering a wide perspective of the nuances of his sounds. Here you can find all the aspects of techno sound, from ambient landscapes, to dubby and liquid textures or pulsating abstract techno exercises. “Blue” starts the trip with dubbed echoes, floating textures and fat spaced out chords: the best way to switch on the ignition and prepare for the upcoming sonic voyage.

Spherical Coordinates – Fixed Zenith [POLEGROUP017]

Cover art - Spherical Coordinates: Fixed Zenith

Spherical Coordinates, aka Oscar Mulero and Christian Wünsch, have joined forces in the studio and made four new cuts of spatial futuristic techno. With the minimum elements, it is hypnotic, rough and repetitive. A stylistic U turn that brings us a more personal sound palette, something we should appreciate very much in this era of continuously cloned works.

We have the pleasure of presenting you this new step in sound design, ten tracks that show a new twist in their style, relaxing the frequencies and the tempos and departing from linear concepts, offering a well balanced tracklist with ambient or near IDM experiments, dreamy or even melodic techno and their traditional obscure feeling.

Spherical Coordinates – Polar Angle EP [POLEGROUP015]

Here’s a brand new stellar cooperation by Oscar Mulero & Christian Wünsch. The duo’s commitment is to depart from their trademark sound in search of a new transmission. They join software and hardware to create this four-piece EP that explores the deeper side of techno, heavily inspired by space and futurism, focusing on liquid textures, harmonic sequences and classic drum machine sounds, yet preserving the danceable feeling.

Exium / Reeko – Enemies of the Indestructible EP [POLEGROUP014]

http://images.junostatic.com/300/CS473115-01A-MED.jpg

Pole Group presents a back to back venture between Exium and Reeko. The A side is the duo’s territory. ‘DragN’ starts with a sharp beat that soon becomes infected by synthesized drones moving through the stereo and bell like sounds with hypnotic sequencing. This track means a departure from the classic Exium sound, where lower tempos and less aggressive sounds take control. The second track, ‘Zero Summing’, dives into broken rhythms and deeper atmospheres, with drones and white noise sweeps that fight all over the arrangement to create a claustrophobic feel.On the B side, Reeko provides ‘Electrical Phenomena’. Analogue drums start the affair till the 808 sub kick appears, moving to the lower frequencies. Clear and precise hats help moving the groove and high frequency sweeps, whilst resonant textures take over the arrangement from minute 2 onwards.  ‘Emission of Electrons of a Surface’ closes the release. Dark and deep drums ascleverly programmed as ever, running on an infinite loop salted with bleeps and microtextures that lay under the ominous rhythm.

Exium – Complex [POLE009]

EXIUM - Complex (Front Cover)

The Spanish duo Exium returns to Pole headquarters with “Complex” EP. With this new release they give their style a new twist by making the synths the starring element of “Complex”, a melodic techno number, full of harmonies, portamento leads and pulsating beats. Detroit’s own legendary Dj Rolando reworks the original version in a more percussive style, but preserving the melodies and leads. A sure floor smasher. ”The Quiet Man” closes this release by returning to the classic Exium sound: hard drums, sharp hatzs and dense atmospheres, for the darkest fans of pure techno grooves.
