Terekke – Improvisational Loops [MFM028]

Terekke drifts gracefully onto Music From Memory with a long player of looping ambient pad pressure. The recording of ‘Improvisational Loops’ began in 2012 during yoga classes at Body Actualized Center in NYC. In the spirit of past ‘New Age’ or Minimal music, it aims to open up a space within the room giving the listener a chance to explore inward or outward. It was recorded using a digital synthesizer, reverb, and looper.

VA – Mosaics [EVR010]

Echovolt’s lost and found 10th release is finally out. A beautiful mosaic of six tracks produced by new and old friends hailing from six different parts of the world. From the no-reason unreleased Terekke’s “Sun Salutation” remix, the new Greek producer but old friend of us under the (for the time being) name “Old Man Talkin'”, the first hip hop jam ever released on the label by West Coast’s “Tlim Shug” to the mysterious one-off alias of Sydney’s “Indreamz”. However, this compilation could never be more complete without our new loves that are Australia’s Hugo Gerani (aka John Tanner) and Shea from overseas both of them to be seen in future solo releases!

M. Rav – Common Purpose [LIES088]

M RAV - Common Purpose

Max Ravitz has made a name for himself with his hazed dance not dance productions over these last couple of years appearing on a handful of different labels under a handful of different monikers. Here on the 15 track, ”Common Purpose” cd we get Ravitz in all of his different forms as he teams up with numerous artists from his local Brooklyn scene and beyond, serving up unheard cuts from numerous recording sessions done over the last years. Through the record we hear the producer’s versatility from tripped out downtempo vibes, to mid-paced acid, to high bpm dust burners, as Ravitz and Co. explore almost all possible avenues while in the studio. Collaborators include Huerco S., Jahiliyya Fields, NGLY, Terekke, Bookworms, Cloudface, and Josephine.

VA – L.I.E.S. Presents Music For Shut-Ins [LIES041]

https://i0.wp.com/imagescdn.juno.co.uk/300/CS509667-01A-MED.jpg

A collection of hits, misses, new loves, and future head scratchers running the gamut from floor ready beat tracks (Legowelt) to post chill out room bleep-hop (Daywalker & CF) to industro-wave anti beat experimentation (Svengalisghost) with no restrictions or limitations. As with last year’s American Noise compilation, disc one revists prime cuts from the nearly 30 releases the label will have released by the end of 2013, while disc two compiles unreleased tracks exclusive to this cd. A document of the immediate energy surrounding these musicians here and now, maybe one can call it club music for people who hate going to the club? or simply “Music for Shut Ins.”

Terekke – Yyyyyyyyyy [LIES021]

Narrative, breathing, basement house with subtle morphing chords, heavy tape hiss, and an undeniable character that has been lost in much dance music. Again this record will be equally satisfying for home listening or calculated club play. Record comes complete with beautiful full color cardboard cover of some outerspace shit for you to zone out to while listening to the record, a bonus to say the least.

Alan Hurst – Nzambi Remixes [ERS004]

https://i0.wp.com/imagescdn.juno.co.uk/300/CS456757-01A-MED.jpg

After the tense and dramatic soundscapes of Jason Letkiewicz’s Nzambi LP under his soundtrack guise Alan Hurst, Emotional Response have put the tracks to the test for three appropriately oddball remixers. Fellow L.I.E.S. affiliate Terekke turns out a heavily sedated dub of “Nzambi” that rides a pacey house beat but buries everything in delay and reverb. Timothy J Fairplay brings some serious sleazy 80s electro tones to “Parallel Sensations”, complete with predatory vocal and thick ladles of synthy goodness. Finally, Jonas Reinhardt cools off the intensity with a blissful ambient version of “Before The Dawn” which plunges headfirst into a warm bed of melodic drones.

Max D – Orgies of The Hemp Eaters [FT013]

Track artwork

Future Times presents a new Max D 12″, with a remix by Terekke! Max is back from the jungles of “Polo”, and he’s shed some of the atmosphere to make two cuts in full precision mode. “Orgies Of The Hemp Eaters” swings between Sakamoto romanticism and classic bass euphoria while the drums almost snap the track apart. Terekke steps in next with his “Can’t Get Enuff Mix” and punishes with a smudged version. B-side “Slick” streamlines the flow into a taut, intricate frenzy – a meditation on melody and the pure bliss of machines.
