Norwell – Death Of A Star Remixes [PNKMN014.5]

Norwell’s Death Of A Star E.P, released earlier this summer, mixed his usual kosmiche-inspired sounds with the distorted grittiness of ’80s industrial music. It was impressive, and now Pinkman has decided to offer up two remixes apiece of EP highlights “Nordic Nights” and “Death of A Star”. The former track is given the acid-flecked, 8-bit techno treatment by Antenna, before S Olbricht turns it into an unsettling, Motor City-influenced roller. Delta Funkitonen channels the spirit of EBM pioneers Nitzer Ebb on his throbbing interpretation of “Death Of A Star” – all psychedelic synthesizer arpeggios and restless kick drums – before DJ Overdose steals the show with an inspired electro remake of the same track.

Route 8 / S.Olbricht – Selected Works [GFEP002]

Madrid’s Go! Finger takes the vinyl path again launching some selected tracks from one of their most notable cassette releases to date: Route 8 and S. Olbricht’s “Ste Pwri Tmod – Selected Works”, Budapest’s Farbwechsel duo’s early efforts together on Go! Finger. This EP includes S.P.T. Ballacid’s original live recorded tracks “Don’t Miss Us Florida” & “King County Metro Transit” plus their respective Route 8 & S. Olbricht remixes. Amazing raw analog deep jam cuts.

S Olbricht – For Perfect Beings [LT022]

Having broken the barrier for murky skewed house with his 2014 white label ‘A Place Called Ballacid’, Hungarian scene founder S Olbricht returns with a full album on Lobster Theremin that channels his distinct brand of thumping, sludgy techno, weaving through repetitive drone-laden ambient and Hague-esque escape soundtrack house. ‘For Perfect Beings’ is a sound-palette tour de force, picking ‘n’ mixing tempos and tonal balances that shift throughout each track and side of vinyl. Which strangely starts on a 12″ LP slab and ends with a pseudo ‘bonus’ 10″ two track experiment.

DJ Overdose – 05 Poly 800 Loop [DD001]

The 05 Poly 800 Loop EP was born in the name of the Dutch-Hungarian friendship when DJ Overdose collaborated with the Budapest based record label Dalmata Daniel, and Hungarian acts, S Olbricht & 12z. A wide range of styles release from dark and mid-tempo to hard-hitting electro. Just how we like it from mister Model Man. The EP also features two remixes both of which are complete reworks of the originals. S Olbricht transformed ‘Path To Wrath’ into a dark abstract techno wave that manages to end up light and romantic. Meanwhile 12z, the newest mascot of Nicolas Jaar’s ‘Other People’ label have made an experimental symphony from ‘Be(h)anger’ and this pathos covers the whole essence of this EP. A promising start for the Dalmata Daniel label.

S Olbricht – Trancess [PS004]

The second 12inch from the burgeoning Proto Sites imprint comes from Hungarian deconstructivist S Olbricht. ‘Trancess’ plunges into hazy ambient techno and distorted house depths, exploring the gritty themes present in his recent cut for Lobster Theremin and the consistent body of work for the likes of Opal Tapes, Gang of Ducks, SicSic or his own Farbwechsel imprint.

ROUTE 8/BLACK MOLD/S OLBRICHT/BASIC HOUSE - VA01

The Hungarian Farbwechsel’s first vinyl release has arrived, and it’s a real international effort featuring five artists from four countries on four tracks. Gazing through the Venetian blinds, it’s the label’s promising talent, Route 8 kicking it off with a vibing, 90s inspired house cut. Next up, Lumigraph and Patricia reset with a slow-churning, acid-flavoured techno. It’s the sort of track you would expect to be played on an endless loop in all coal mines 500m below ground level. On the back side, Farbwechsel’s founding father, S Olbricht gets in motion with the weirdly melodic. To close it off, it’s another label head, Basic House of Opal Tapes fame testing your stamina with the EP’s most direct, uptempo track.

S Olbricht – A Place Called Ballacid [LTWHT003]

The increasingly impressive Lobster Theremin label seems to be developing close ties to Hungary’s emerging electronic music scene. Having previously released a superb EP from Budapest-based Imre Kiss, they’ve now turned to one of the country’s more established names, S. Olbricht (an alias of producer Martin Mikolai). There’s much to admire on this intoxicating four-tracker, from the alien electonics and hustling drums of leftfield techno opener “Fi”, to the crackling, off-kilter rhythms and ghostly chords of “RPSTS”. Elsewhere, Mikolai demonstrates his deep house nous on the warming “IIX1”, and fuses twinkling melodies, creepy chords and a throbbing low-end groove on the similarly impressive “Veuns”.
