Han Sotofett & Jakko Eino Kalevi with Andres Lõo – Jazzsomdub [AMFIBIA25]

HAN SOTOFETT/JAAKKO EINO KALEVI with ANDRES LOO - Jazzsomdub

Finnish multi instrumentalist Jaakko Eino Kalevi & Norwegian producer Han Sotofett (aka DJ Sotofett) teamed up with Estonian drummer Andres Lõo on the “Jazzsomdub” album for a wide & improvised excursion within a narrow world of drums, percussion, saxophone, flutes, electric piano, monophonic synths and tape delays. Besides distinctively exploring Lõo and Kalevi’s batterie & percussion work with deep-listening quality drum mixes there are elements of impulsive beauty, particularly on “Essens” free carrying sax solo. The album partly reaches for well known directions of jazz in the vain of the cosmic, psychedelic, improvised, atonal and spiritual, but the particularness lies within the rhythm & mix – like a rubber band stretched in 4 dimensions.

XI – Mania 028 [MANIA028]

MANIA 28 presents the second batch of sessions by XI dating from 2009. A-side’s soft mellow clunks & clanks of acid stretches warm and long with toms gently fighting the kick for space. Flip it for B1’s call-and-respons Acid lines embedded on 808 rhythms, pads and incomming Balearic hitting-horns (as if The Royal Army Corps back dropped a sunrise on a Mallorca after party). B2 goes deeper, more alluring and utterly filtered. Classic elements, impeccable atmosphere.

SVN & AU feat Paleo – On Tempo / It Takes Time [WANIA100EG]

A-side with pounding worked up and almost gnarly techno by SVN, feat. vocals by Paleo aka Paleologos Koukouvelis. Flip-to-B and dive into a ultra deep chorded stabber by AU (SVN and DNL) for those hours hanging in the air, also this side features Paleo on vocals – giving it a spiritual transit – from the energy in the room when produced.

Cover art - Frak: Börft EP

Sweden’s (almost) unknown techno veterans Börft Records we have played and seeded wizely through out the years – to be honest, we’ve hid their treasures for years too. Forget all you know about Swedish electronic music, this is Börft crew, the core underground of ”söta bror’s” techno history – here represented by Frak – a full out techno acid punch.  The EP is including a beautiful Dj Sotofett remix.

Unknown Artist – Reson [MANIA023]

Sex Tags Mania presents Reson – a zealous session of accented TR-808 and live synth solos balancing between the emotive and ecstatic, but not irrational. This live electro jam, recorded in Pyramide Studios Frankfurt, grasps the sentience of techno music. The countering side appends two parts – first purely consisting of beats and reverb – latter a deep stripped exothermic continuation of the main theme.

Dj Sotofett – DJ Sotofett Presenterer Dritfett [WANIA098]

All the tracks here are based around the 909 – thunderous kickdrums and sharp, hissing hi-hats that cut through the mix. Still, there’s a broad range of sounds, from head-down, fists-clenched warehouse workouts with an industrial edge, to more melodic tracks with Detroit references aplenty. Good honest techno with a real raw live feel.
