Lucretio and Marieu a.k.a. The Analogue Cops come back on Memento with a four tracks EP. Lucretio delivers two cuts written and produced with the extraordinary Kyma workstation: “Ghetto Stab” is an heavy DanceMania influenced party banger while “Any Idea” is a deep techno journey into the realms of spectral manipulation. Marieu brings in all the hardware horsepower romanticism with “Tab and Rub” and “The Restored Text”; the first being acid excursion into the memories of the earl From days, the second interpolating massive kick drums and saturated harmonics with frantic vocal samples.
Machine soul Hi-techno funk rooted cuts from the Berlin based Analogue Cops as Xenogears. Included a space acid solid remix by Mattia Trani.
The Israeli duo of Deep’a & Biri with Basement Cuts on Jaunt Records. Full of psychoactive tendencies and brimming with otherworldly sounds, it features the pair delving deep, displaying an obsessive eye for detail and unfurling an array of captivating sounds. Full of dreamy soundscapes and pulsating kicks, it plays out with some class. The Analogue Cops, the Italian duo of Lucretio and Marieu, delivers a fitting remix, full of the pair’s trademark funk with a dollop of ominous tidbits, slowly progressing into an acid-led monster.
Parassela is the studio and live project of Blawan and The Analogue Cops. The project lands on Restoration, featuring the appearance of Pariah on track A1, a crossover monster of techno and garage. Getting darker, A2 is an unfriendly radio-activity with a gloomy chicagoid reminiscence. Side B displays two dystopic cuts of massive sci-fi acidic techno. There are no titles for the tracks, just insurgent grooves, by men and machines, coming from magnetic tapes.
Bass Culture Records returns with a unique and varied double A-side featuring collaborations between Ryan Elliott, Alex Picone and the Analogue Cops. The release brings to light these artists true weight and resonance in today’s scene, with the A-side showcasing Ryan Elliott and The Analogue Cops true ear for a modern techno gem and the B-side presenting Alex Picone and The Analogue Cops live credentials. A siders Gentlemen and Homeboys take listeners to the very depths of bass with low end fuzz, the subtlest hint of dub and a percussive swing welcomed at any hour on the dance floor. Out of Passion and No Stress go deeper still, with a true sense of liveness to the drums, heart-grasping basslines and sensual undertones.
The Analogue Cops and Blawan are back on Vae Victis with the second installment of their brand new Parassela series. The intent of threesome to restore the old school analog vibe is clear also in this 4 tracks ep of raw and gritty techno which also feature a remix from Italian label pals Die Roh.
The hardware radicalists, that are The Analogue Cops aka Lucretion & Marieu and Steffi, present their unification in the studio as Third Side as an LP including the best productions of the past year and this latest LP serves as both a proclamation of their shared love for the analogue sound and as a breath of fresh air for techno. ‘The Absolute’ kicks things off with rippling snare drums, a warm bass line and a sweet cocktail of atmospherics and effects. Restoration friend, nd_baumecker joins the team on ‘Jackie’, where a chopped up vocal is carried backwards and forwards by an edgy drum machine workout. ‘The Base Of All Matters’ is a progressive, heads-down beat filled with crispy snares and disjointed chords, but the trio really get going on ‘Gauge Fields’ – where a frenetic mixture of synth stabs and effects is swallowed by a montrous, syncopating bass line. Side C begins with ‘Unity’, a powerful techno tool which has recently been remixed by Steffi herself, Blawan and the mysterious Nightjars. ‘Subsequent Stages’ enters lighter house territories but still retains that signature Third Side rawness and minimalism. On the flipside, ‘Fundamental Forces’ introduces a heavy, bumping beat floating over a sea of euphoric voices and distant melodies. Finally, the amptly names ‘Shit On Me’ featuring Virginia (the talented singer and songwriter responsible for the astonishing vocals tracks ‘on the rousing hit Yours’, and on the touching ‘You Own My Mind’, both released on Berlin’s Ostgut Ton in Feb 2011) closes things off with a nasty, twisted percussion which evolves into a more experimental, bass-fuelled anthem for the small hours. Real techno excursions for the coinnasseurs.
Hands Up is the production team formed by The Analogue Cops and Alex Picone. Their analogue joint venture has groundbreaking results. Machine powered house music heavily influenced by the Berliner dub techno and by the funkiest 2step ,with a debt to Detroit. This first release features 2 dancefloor killers recorded on tape and saturated with bass.
Blawan and The Analogue Cops have teamed up once again, this time to put out the first release on their new label Parassela. The trio are renowned for being staunch advocates of vinyl and have therefore decided to make Parassela a strictly analogue affair, only producing limited pressings of each release on hand written white labels. This debut EP reflects perfectly the stripped back aesthetic that has been created for the label, raw and atmospheric analogue sounds that require no flair in presentation to pack a full punch.

Deep, strong and relentless, this is the first full length EP of The Analogue Cops on their own label Restoration. As usual, an unquestionable raw force is summoned by the abrasive touch of their experienced hands on incorruptible machines, without any mean computer involved in their operations.
Introducing our techno comrades in Berlin. From the outset Xenogears set about propelling you on an intrepid and spirited pursuit: an experience which is at times intimate and at others ominous but always driven by the techno vision.
Excellent release coming from the juicy dusty tapes of Restoration Records. “Butsu” is a 4 track EP of powerful analogue electronic dance music without boundaries. This is the sound of the passion and the devotion to the House and Techno tradition from the underground scene of Berlin; it’s the triumphant march of the defenders of the vinyl.
