VA – WorldWideWindow [ENISSLAB]

In light of the current Covid-19 Pandemic Studio Enisslab headed up by Italian DJ / Producer and Live Act Neel has announced the release of a very special 56 track charity compilation project, fundraising for The Red Cross, who are working extremely hard alongside health services internationally that are feeling the effects of the corona-virus outbreak the most right now. The compilation is available for a limited time via Bandcamp and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to The Red Cross to help the world’s most affected countries in the Covid-19 pandemic.

This special release features over 6 hours of previously unreleased and unheard material, where an all star cast of artists were encouraged to share music that reflects this time we are living in.

Neel, who is one half of live duo Voices From The Lake, and LF58 speaks out on behalf of the initiative, organised in collaboration with improvised live project Circle Of Live, and visual art collective Sbagliato. He explains:

“In this situation we all need to look after each other and this project is a start. I wanted to reach as many people as possible to spread this message, so I started to share the idea personally with lots of artists and the response was amazing. I wanted them to take their time with whichever tools they had available at home to produce some music that reflects this time we are living in, a contribution for this special project and to portray a special message.”

The project’s cover art image brought to you by visual art collective Sbagliato shows pictures of windows of houses and studios taken by the artists themselves: 56 musicians, 56 windows, 56 tracks shape a new place of sharing.

Mono Junk – Prince Of The Night [FP008]

Given their obsession with the analogue-rich, stargazing sound of early ’90s intelligent techno, it seems fitting that the latest Forbidden Planet release sees the return of Mono Junk. Predictably, the veteran producer is on fine form, delivering cuts bristling with yearning, sci-fi tinged melodies, restless arpeggios, far-sighted electronics and raw, stripped-back drum machine rhythms. While much of the EP is bold, melodious and intoxicating (see “Prince of the Night”, for starters), Mono Junk also indulges his rarely seen dub techno influences on “Channel B (Remix)”, before reaching for the stars with the Legowelt-esque synth beauty of “Maalisku”.

Introspective / Roberto Bosco – Introspective [BMUK005]

Roberto Bosco comes to Balance with an exclusive project, “Introspective”. The first song from this project is “When the Rain Comes Down”, a collaboration with Jenifa Mayanja that offers a smooth deep tech production with spoken vocals and a hook of eternal qualities. Also included in this project is a remix by up and coming young Italian producer Peter JD. Side B is deeper, mind-tingling techno, consisting of two tracks called Untitled.

Roberto Bosco – Figure SPC L [FIGSPCL6]

Roberto Bosco is back for his third offering for Figure SPC, with a future-classic 4 track techno EP, intelligent and sensitive. Easing us into the thick of it, ‘Charming Noise’ takes humming, rumbling bass tones and a metallic clang as its themes. Slow burning and readily effective, its a brooding monster for the late hours. ‘I Just Can’t Breathe’ pushes the adrenalin up a few notches in a screaming, white noise attack on the senses. Bosco’s trademark heavy bass rumble and crisp percussion layers hold their own in this reduced killer. We’re then ready to embark on an emotional voyage as the masterful ‘See The Light’ emerges from the depths with its pushing acid bass and beautiful atmospheric melody. Classic strings and synths swirl and build in a tender and heartfelt piece of timeless techno. Closing the EP, ‘I Was Lonely’ takes the vibe into more reduced, after-hours zones with Roberto’s cool and low-slung take on the smoother sound of future-deep house.
