BRAME & HAMO | Lamaj's Secret Ep
Lamaj is exactly, but the mystery, funk and raw sex appeal in these four jams certainly has us wondering First up we meet Lamaj", this track drips with delicate melodic samples, jazz tainted drums and bass driven funk galore We asked our long time friend, Australian Andy Hart, to give it a flip for us on A2 He opened things up, deepened the vibe and brought some bass toms to deliver a final punch The B-side begins with Four Lights", here the guys slow things down a little and remind us of their gift for nostalgia touched soul and groove samples Finally, Garlic Fist Pump", as the name suggests, takes us straight back out to the dance floor, between the dynamic live drums, subtle vocal snips cry to the hip hop Brame & Hamo draw so much inspiration from Welcome to the House of Lamaj, we hope you'll take off your coat and stay a while

LEN FAKI | Basement Trax Vol. 02
While the first part of this 2013-established series was characterised by its vocals,spheric sounds and melodies, the Berghain resident almost completely passes onthese elements with Vol 02 All three distinct, functional, composed tracks, oscillate at about 124 BPM, reflecting Faki's experienced eye for the peak time at Wriezener Bahnhof and dance floors from around the world 'These tracks are crafted from the same mould, but they differ by their character - it's a bit like a family affair, by looking into their eyes you can tell the connection,' says Len 'After coming home from a Sunday evening set at Berghain I felt inspired and content This feeling and energy was still present the next day - that's how all tracks were created - in the same session with the same flow,' he explains 'Generally speaking these tracks are slower than quite a few House or Techno tracks - but you won't realize it straight away ' The tracks are also constructed in a similar way, yet differently: With 'B-PAX' and 'For Real' Faki takes his time to set the tone before adding melodic elements, bleeps or finally some hints of ambient sounds

HUBERT DAVIZ | proceduri de rutina (5th Anniversary Edition)
the 5th anniversary of Hubert Daviz 2010 masterpiece Proceduri De Rutina The album was the first longform release by the Cologne-based producer Proceduri De Rutina was heavyly inspired by the Romanian jazz scene The record started as a just-for-fun-beattape, after Hubert got hooked on the vintage jazz of his home country in late 2009 Call it magic, but the sample sources and Hubert's trademark sound fitted so well that the new music cried for a release "Proceduri De Rutina" is a deep but chilled trip into Hubert Daviz's sound cosmos, inspired by some of the most obscure Eastern-European jazz you have never heard of We only pressed 500 copies back in 2010 To celebrate the 5th anniversary, Hubert has asked some of his producer friends to revisit the album together Dexter, FloFilz, Wun Two, TBRCK, Max Graef and Hulk Hodn all delivered great interpretations We release the 5th anniversary edition as a double LP using the original artwork by Robert Winter and Chicken George The remix LP has it's own title "O Alta Perspectiva" and is packaged in a new cover by Robert Winter, shot at the same building where the cover photo for "Proceduri De Rutina" has been made

DJ KOZE | xtc
a journey into deep, tropical ecstasy XTC begins in the same spirit, and captures the all the blissful allusions of its name, but its initial gentility belies the deep intensity to come Floating pads glow with celestial ambience as a kick drum is gradually coaxed into solid form, and the introduction of spoken text begins the second act Many people are experimenting with the drug Ecstasy,' it says, is the drug like the lie and meditation the truth Or am I missing something that could really help me" XTC' then transforms: sweetly imploring tones become demanding, gentle gradients between chords turn hard-edged, and sharp hi-hats cut through the haze Complete with Koze's signature percussive quirks, it drives towards the track's final pay off: an undeniable, all-consuming, irresistible high Knee On Belly' recalls Koze at his most tongue-in-cheek and overt, it is bright, bold and literally brassy, using cut-up horns of all shapes and sizes to patchwork together his own unique arrangement With the highs and mid ranges accounted for, Koze adds in a swollen, thrumming bass line to mix to bring this floor-filler to life Knee on Belly' recalls a raw, filtered and funky approach to groove, with a nod to disco house and the art of artful sampling, as it orbits between its own neon highs and simmering lows

LUCY & BEN KLOCK | war lullaby
The debut collaboration between techno alchemists Ben Klock and Lucy will probably provoke quivers of anticipation before a single note has been heard After all, both producers have carved out names for themselves as scene innovators at what they do, and both have already proven that they can more than capably work in a duo format without sacrificing an iota of their unique aesthetics: in Lucy's case, there has already been the sublime Zeitgeber pairing with Speedy J , and Klock has joined forces with the likes of Marcel Dettmann to craft some of the more memorable output from the Ostgut Ton label This new release makes good on each producer's talent for working with epically unfolding tracks, maintaining a strong command of both 'drone' and melodicism, and envisioning sound as a kind of inter-dimensional mass transit As the record indicates, things can get very interesting when the two working methods superimpose perfectly, but can be just as interesting when the two fall slightly out of phase with one another

Proper techno from this no frills label that serves up swinging, heavyweight and dubby techno funk Functional but fun, tool like but teutonic in effect Ahead of the new 2x12" release, "8 Years of Fachwerk" and some special label nights around the world, the Berlin techno label serves up a new four track EP that features one cut from each of the label's main protagonists, namely boss Mike Dehnert as well as Sascha Rydell and Roman Lindau Mike Dehnert goes first with 'Avant Que', which is an edgy and paranoid techno roller with alarm like hooks, distant bell harmonies and slithering hi hats Fulsome, powerful kicks drive the thing late into the night and it's another accomplished weapon from Dehnert 'Identified' comes next from Sascha Rydell, and this one is a more subterranean, groaning and gritty track with eerie snares and muffled vocals colouring a deeply buried bassline It's humid and intense and no mistake Next, Roman Lindau gets all raucous yet stays funky with his 'Rockin Snare' Here the groove seems to rock back and forth on its heels, whirring machine sounds and sharp, raw snares cut a crisp pattern and pinging drums add plenty of dynamism down below Rounding out the EP, Dehnert turns out the monstrous, rib ratting, floor shaking swinger that is 'Hain ' Shot through with sci-fi lines and with weighty, earthy kicks, it barrels along next to ripping hooks and squirming little pads that flesh out an already full fat bomb Footwork is a bastion of techno quality and it has been now for eight years Still fresh as ever!

SCHERBE | late nite safari
Scherbe is back on Uncanny Valley with his second full length EP After his recent contribution to the UV20-compilation and a record on Fourth Wave he returns with the aptly titled "Late Nite Safari" and shows off again his knack for rumbling beats and fuzzy synths "Poison Hillz" builds up on steamy percussions and a slowly rising bass line arpeggio that unfolds completely when the hi-hat drops in You won't notice that wonderful synth pad coming but when it's there everything sounds right in place "Long Time No Sea" is based on cowbell-heavy beats and tiny xylophone sounds Completed by a yearning vocal sample and catchy guitar licks it keeps your head nodding Scherbe's unique drum programming makes it stand out from most of the typical Deep House tracks and he makes sure that all the elements flow together into his distinctive groove On the flipside, "Mosqito Beach" creates a tropical atmosphere with bird-like tones and sound textures of high humidity With a piano loop rising up and down plus deranged organ sounds he brings things to a pretty mysterious end Finally, "Specimen" is no exception to Scherbe's stuttering beats And the tropical feeling is still there thanks to a distorted vocal sample that sounds like a frog And with the beautiful piano melody combined with a tender flute the track ends on an almost old school House vibe Once again, Uncanny Valley's very own Carl-Johannes Schulze aka Carl Suspect takes care of the record's artwork He took the EP's title literally and set out into the Saxon woods to visualize his idea of what a late night safari could look like

Rat Life returns with The Pagan Rites on Catalogue Number 4 Little is known about the band from Sweden, first signals were received in 2010 when they submitted their track 03 to the IFM Demo Contest In October last year Rat Life sent out a submarine to search the Swedish coast line for the small hut where the duo records their songs (Apologies to the Swedish authorities at this point, who confused our research with a Russian military threat) All four tracks are packed with bittersweet melancholia, reflecting the neverending darkness of cold Scandinavian winter, still the midnight sun is always in sight on the horizon! Already recorded between 2008 - 2013, Rat Life Records is very happy to finally make this music available on vinyl

It's time to celebrate! At catalogue number 20 Uncanny Valley extends its compilation-concept to 12 tracks spread over three records (or as a bundle if you prefer digital) With new music by label-regulars like Jacob Korn, Cuthead and Credit 00, friends like RVDS & K'Alexi or Filburt and fresh talents like Goetterkreis & Steve Kasper it is an exciting ride along the winding roads through the Uncanny Valley The three records are visually linked with distinctive artwork by the ever-reliable Paul Waak Part 3 starts with a bang and ''In der Weltraumdiskothek'' by mysterious Dresden based producer DC Production If you've ever wondered what music would be played at the night club of the Ewoks this tune might be the answer ''Nuthin Wrong Here'' is Scherbe to the bone with his stumbling beats, dirty synths and heartbreaking samples We also have a big heart for Disco here at the valley and this is proven by Sandrow M & K_Chico who put a smile on our face with catchy guitar licks, bouncy bass lines and cheesy vocals ''Space Dancer'', what more could you desire? Finally, Filburt from Leipzig brings things down to a peaceful end with his slightly melancholic ''My Time'' Free download included

HNNY | carefree
Just ahead of a landmark 50th EP release, Catz 'N Dogz's Pets Recordings turn to Johan Cederberg aka HNNY for a special five track release that very much invites us deep into the off kilter world of the revered Swedish producer Before now HNNY - preferably pronounced 'honey' - has won himself many fans with curious and quirky releases on labels including Studio Barnhus, Let's Play House and Local Talk Producing house but with a charming sense of melody, a great ear for a sample and an irresistible sense of groove, he is a firm DJ and dancer favourite all across Europe, and for good reason Opening the EP is 'Happy Happy House House', a lazy, beachy cut awash with sun-kissed melody and trip hop grooves Swaying gently to and fro, it's an immediately soothing track before 'Brasilian Sound' is as Latin as you would expect from the title: it's a percussive, summery, atmospheric jaunt though up-tempo and feel-good house that's littered with distant whistles, the sound of kids playing in the park and a variety of loveable instruments 'Fresh Laundry' then drops into a much slower and more purposeful groove - stoned drums and a distant bassline unfold lazily before big wind instruments begin tooting up top It's human, imperfect and full of keys that imbue it with the joys of spring On the flip, 'Fruktstund' is another adult lullaby with colourful, cartoony instrumentals, angular grooves and plenty of organic textures, whilst closer 'Yogalates' is much the same with its big xylophones, joyous piano chords, rubbery kicks and generally disarming sense of playfulness Spring is just round the corner but it feels so much closer with these enchanting new cuts from HNNY

Martin Enke or Lake People as the majority has become to know him has definitely taken his time for his debut album "Purposely Uncertain Field", given his success from an early stage on and the quick development of the distinctive Lake people sound But it wasn't until 2012's "Point in Time" EP on Krakatau that his music became enjoyable for a wider audience Thanks to Dixon & Ame and numerous other DJs, who included the tracks in their sets and mixes the "Point in Time" EP can be considered a big game changer in Lake People's career Without riding a big hype wave Martin lived up to the increasing expectations with a bunch of EPs, on which he refined his production skills Following the popularity of his own music, Martin also became a sought-after remixer for such acts as Lusine on Ghostly International or Dixon & Guy Gerber on Gerber's newly found Rumours label A loyal fan base of his meditative, somehow spiritual, yet powerful house sound grew over the years and made Martin an in demand producer and celebrated live act

The Index expands into its fourth chapter with a rich collection of tracks from key label artists Marcel Fengler, Thomas Hessler, Echoplex and VRIL Label co-ordinator Marcel Fengler drops 'Scion' on the A1, a non-typical, deeper House-influenced jam with a floating, mind-melting soft-focus Abstract, crafty Techno meets classic Sunday-afternoon vibes in this unique offering After his wonderful 4-tracker on IMF003 promising talent Thomas Hessler continues his run with the melodic and stark journey track, 'The Escaper' What is initially shrouded in mystery and melancholy soon opens up into a funky, US vs UK-styled workout, snapping snares and reduced percussion driving the meandering synth theme Echoplex, who graced IMF002, also returns with a suitably trippy and percussive number, entitled 'The Relapse' Building into a bleepy, freaky, acidic killer, complete with some cleverly deployed rave-vocal samples, filtering in and out of the fluffy aesthetic, the long-serving Polish master is still on top form Going for impact and stand-out sound design, VRIL offers 'Thronwagen' - a mesmerising arrangement of synth layers, classic Techno stabs and overlapping themes Already well-known for his powerful drums and bottom end control, this more musical piece goes a long way to showcase some of the German producer's many other talents

VV.AA. | V - 5 Years Of Artefacts Chapter 5
After four technically and aesthetically impressive salvos of eclectic electronics, the 5-year anniversary compilation from Stroboscopic Artefacts reaches its terminus with this new release Worrying about whether or not the series 'goes out with a bang' seems unnecessary, since the series has always felt pleasingly unconventional, and thus not too concerned with the conventional act of providing listeners with a grand finale Simply put, this high-quality 'retrospective' series has been more about challenging the S A constellation of artists to forge new paths than it has been about nostalgically revisiting the past, and so it's better to approach this last installment as a statement on the past informing the future Donato Dozzy, Lucy, and the Sendai duo are the parties responsible for bringing us the final report of the series Those already familiar with these artists' past works for S A will understand immediately that these artists are not all cut from the same cloth, and those who didn't know that will soon find out As with the previous 'anniversary' records, the intent here is to synthesize significantly different sounds into a uniform or seamless listening experience, to the point where the record seems more like a genuine collaboration between the artists than a mere 'sampler' record offering eclecticism for its own sake Donato Dozzy's entry here is very much in keeping with the spirit of his S A release Terzo Giorno It is as propulsive as any of the best techno music of past decades, exhibiting a marked indifference to the inessential and a knack for smashing together percussive atoms of a thick and bombastic quality To do so without punishing speakers completely into submission or turning everything into a fatiguing mess is more difficult than it sounds, but Dozzy is certainly up to the task here

Other People is excited to announce Solparas Swing EP, the debut solo release by New York born and based artist Paul Sara Paul recently returned to his New York base after spending five years in Montreal studying, working, and composing There, he co-founded Booma Collective with Oren Ratowsky and Valentin Stip, a local group of musicians and sound artists, as well as a music label Swing is a sort of summation of Paul's time in Montreal and his first full solo release outside of Booma For Paul, Swing is movement, sound, and hypnosis That fine, affective modulation, as present in a drum machine or a drummer's hand, plays a role But so too does Paul's memory of winter sessions in Booma's studio (ironically named 'The Furnace'), where he and his friends had to swing their bodies back and forth to keep warm The five tracks on Swing evoke warmth within cold, cavernous spaces 'Descent' begins the EP with a one synth panning and undulating quietly left and right before the drop of a gentle, knowing beat Next, 'Swing' bursts open with a tremendous kick looming over tumultuous layers of bass frequency filigreed by glowing chords The gruff, calloused percussion of 'Vitamin C' sounds like its rattling inside the case of a grenade And 'Short Circuit,' the longest track here and an awesome demonstration of polyrhythmic capacity, doubles as jagged sound sculpture 'Seahorses' ends the EPlike it began

CUTHEAD | total sellout
Cuthead got known to the wider public via his releases on Uncanny Valley but his roots reach way back before the label's start There was a time when Cuthead and his brothers from another mother threw wild parties at abandoned industrial locations or in the woods around Dresden The crew, which was known as Kunst:stoff Breakz, also established a label where Cuthead released two albums and one EP as free downloads between 2006 and 2010 Over the years the calls for vinyl versions of those early joints were getting louder and so Uncanny Valley decided to give the best tracks from that era a new life on physical sound carriers and start the ''Total Sellout'' Through refinement and rearrangement 51 tracks were boiled down to a selection of 18 and ended up as an album full of catchy bass lines, heavy beats and sampling excesses Among the tracks are party starters like the strings-infiltrated ''Scissorhands'', ''The Poncho'' or the ever devastating ''Iron Lung'' which still kicks like Dubstep has never faded Since Cuthead has always been heavily influenced by Rap music, there are of course lots of great Hip Hop beats on ''Total Sellout'' Either in the form of funky sample studies like ''Painquilizer'' and ''VibraSkit'' or in true fashion with Raps by crew member Alibi on ''Hidden Track'' Also included on the album are ''Rock My Soul'' and ''All Night Long'', some early examples of Cuthead's knack for well tempered and super catchy House tracks, while the double-bass driven ''Rythmus '78'' shows another jazzy side of him Once again, the artwork was conceived and designed by Till Hohmann who already did a brilliant job on last year's ''Everlasting Sunday''

Mura Masa is an 18 year old producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from the Channel Islands After a childhood learning guitar, piano, drums and writing with local bands, he turned his hand to production, taking influence from a newly found interest in hip-hop and the art of sampling With cues from modern electronic acts such as Hudson Mohawke, James Blake and Cashmere Cat, most of his music is produced in his small bedroom on the coast of Guernsey He has quickly gathered a loyal online fanbase, following plays on BBC Radio 1 and Rinse FM and posts on prominent sites such as Majestic, Hypetrak, pigeonsandplanes and many more He soon became friends with the Soulection collective and just recently signed with Jakarta Records after being featured on their "Summer In Jakarta" compilation Mura Masa's music combines the energy of electronic production and club culture with the rustic and organic sounds and timbres of traditional sample beatmaking Where others use the same sounds and patterns again and again he manages to create soundscapes that are fresh and unique His efforts culminate in the forthcoming project, "Soundtrack To A Death", a fourteen track exploration of his progress so far set for release this November

JACOB KORN | shtum 005
Another new face for shtum but certainly not for all the Techno aficionados out there: @jacob-korn makes his debut on Uncanny Valley's sub label to celebrate his old but not forgotten love for dark and bleepy Techno The tracks' origins date back to the 1990s when Jacob used to work with a MS-DOS based software sequencer called FastTracker Imagine programming beats with Excel and look at the graphic interface on the A-side label of the record to get an idea of the workflow back then Nevertheless, the tracks did not loose any of its intensity "Backstar" comes with a straight Gabba-like kick and sharp synths before it freaks out with tight drumming and powerful bass line action "Tribal" is even darker and will work at every Techno dance floor and FreeTek-Party On the Flipside you'll get "Robot's Life Cycle" Merciless synth-stabs, the stuttering bass drum and one of those early Jacob Korn-pads join forces for a textbook example of a killer dance floor cut At last, "Komputermukke" is as simple as it is effective This one is for all the heads who love their Techno neat and bleepy The illustration on the B-side is by Sebastian Huber while Carl Suspect aka Carl- Johannes Schulze is responsible for the graphical tribute to FastTracker on the A- side

VV.AA. | uncanny vacation
Uncanny Valley and Permanent Vacation are joining forces for an Uncanny Vacation! There has always been a lively exchange between Dresden and Munich and both labels are known for releasing a wide variety of music so it was only natural to team up for a joint release The record starts off with Permanent Vacation-regular and UK-veteran DMX Krew and his "Astro Logical" which is as sharp and crisp as Electro can go The bass line strikes hard but he also squeezes some great melancholic synth lines out of his machines After that, Uncanny Valley's Sandrow M finally gives access to the much in demand live version of "Prayervan", a tune that everybody has been singing along during his live sets On the flipside, Jacob Korn (who already released on both labels) hands in "Eieiei" which rises on a percussion-heavy drum basement to a discoid House stomper thanks to an irresistible sample straight from an obscure flea market find Last but not leas t, Drvg Cvltvre from the Netherlands delivers a tropical House jam "See You Again" is riding on a funky Disco bass line and creates a warm and cosy atmosphere with a whole bag of sound ideas Alexander Dorn aka Credit 00 adds his graphical talents to the record's sleeve with a brilliant tribute to 1990s adventure video games

Zeitgeber and L B Dub Corp split the second in Stroboscopic Artefacts series of fifth anniversary records Zeitgeber is the collaborative project of SA label boss Lucy and Dutch techno royalty Speedy J Their joint alias birthed an exceptional long-player last year and has since been presented as a b2b act at festivals and clubs around the world 'Totemism' is their first officially released output since that album, and is every bit as compelling 'Totemism' opens with distant, reverberating bells and a thin film of hiss and crackle But, one minute in, heavy and incessant drums cut through the ambience, hitting you straight in the chest The surrounding atmosphere evolves and filters in-and-out of the mix until, halfway through, the track takes an unexpected turn with an elastic bassline and acid squelches Then, the drums hit you again This is an 11 minute masterclass in widescreen, narrative techno from two of the scene's most experienced and inventive producers Luke Slater, a man of many aliases, slips into L B Dub Corp mode for the B-side of this record This particular moniker of Slater's generally trades in raw, culturally-inspired house music, though has also appeared on Stroboscopic's Stellate series with two deep and beatless dubs For his contribution to SA's 5 Year anniversary, Slater re-visits a classic club cut of his own, delivering 'Take It Down Again (In Dub)' 'Take It Down Again' is a brilliantly-realised exercise in tension, dub delay and mixing board creativity, all made to shine by a dose of oddball musicality and sampling This version of 2010's 'Take It Down' is more restrained and tonally varied, equipped to instil a brooding and tribal darkness on the floor

VV.AA. | V - 5 Years Of Artefacts Chapter 1
Stroboscopic Artefacts celebrate five years in business with a series of special anniversary releases, featuring selected artists from the SA story-so-far who have strongly shaped the label's identity In 'Drowned By Sight', Rrose sets the tone for the record with a deep and twisting take on club techno A thick, low-end groove rolls out at unhurried pace, and widescreen, hissing synths fill the high-end The track's brilliance lies in its tense, narrative arrangement: a five-minute, detailed climb followed by euphoric release as the drums fade away Perc's 'Tri-City' is a more direct assault on the dancefloor The kicks pump like pistons, held together by weighty sub bass, cymbals and claps The defining feature, though, is the haunting piano keys that emerge in the breakdown Set against the harsh textures Perc is known for, the keys sound especially vivid and transcend the track beyond standard peak-time fare Flip the record to find Pfirter's exceptional 'Atman' This track comes from the more reserved end of Pfirter's discography, deriving its impact from titanic sound design rather than brute muscle The concise range of elements interact both tonally and rhymically to create a masterful piece of music that's fit to move both body and mind Irish duo Lakker provide the closing track, 'Pier' In typical style, they re-imagine classic IDM influences into something totally unique, where mangled vocals sit amongst eerie atmospheres and drones Skipping along way above traditional techno tempo, 'Pier' is the most experimental offering on this record, and represents a key part of the Stroboscopic sound 'V - Five Years Of Artefacts - Chapter One' provides a well-rounded snapshot of what Lucy's label has explored since its conception

La Duquesa the most tender and most refined piece of the album Amygdala, perfectly casual and serious, deep and euphoric, all at the same time, is dedicated to the Spanish Duquesa de Alba, who, as holder of 46 titles of nobility, is even more highly decorated than Queen Elisabeth Koze is fascinated by this lady: With her peculiarly creepy appearance she seems like a relic from the past era of the Spanish nobility She is the most pictured woman in Spain and a pop phenomenon When, in 2011, she married a man 24 years younger than herself, the entire country badmouthed her Sometimes Koze would love to be that younger man, who the Spaniards dismiss as a legacy hunter! Encore the needle is cookin' Dj Koze did it again His homage to Audrey Horne "Burn with me" - a fucked up, deep and schizophrenic brainfoodbouncer with legato bass and hi hats way out of time The beat burst like shagging, the dirty off hi-hat lashes remorseless in the twatherd - everyone just wants to get laid straight away

RANDOM AUDIO | signal to mysterious
With this second release on Blueform the artist Random Audio goes much more into mystic space post-futuristic sounds - as known from another great artist of this kind of techno Starting with "Objects" Random Audio builds a whole scene of the slow arrival of those unidentified flying objects using a counter-rotating rhythm moving exact like the lights of these objects "Signal to Mysterious" goes really deep into sophisticated bleeping chimes for messaging to and from an unknown life-form This track is followed up by a matching one - "Indicator" - but this one has a much slower and darker theme with light pads plus hissing sounds and slow broken beats Somehow different is "Calculation" - an uplifting, bubbling and pumping rhythmic stomper And finally "The Ensemble" comes with varying percussive drums and string sounds building themselves up again and again - only broken up by a short smooth part of beeping, string and pad sounds

RANDOM AUDIO | hologram
This is blueform, a sublabel of melted recordings, with it's first release - made by Random Audio In order to assort different variations of techno blueform was founded as the first official sublabel of melted recordings, although small labels aside of melted were started so far Blueform stands for real classic detroit techno as we know and love it for many years Very famous protagonists, especially from the US formed this spacy, retro-futuristic and/or chordish sound - a special state of mind Random Audio reflects these characteristics with his tracks of the hologram EP He is an important part of the futuredraht community, he has produced many tracks of various styles - mostly (but not only) techno - and even now he had just his second track on melted recordings under another alias, this is his first own (vinyl | digitally worldwide distributed) release The first track "Fourier Transmatica" brings us back with a pulsating sound into the late nineties of detroit techno The chords, melodies and pads in "Downtown" fit exactly to the sound of "the motor city" "The Model" goes right into the science fiction side of techno using creaky blips and old string sounds and finally "The Mask" seems to build itself up with bubbling tones again and again Watch out for the next big release of Random Audio very soon!

SVEN KACIREK | the kenya sessions
In 2008, at the behest of the Goethe-Institut Nairobi, virtuoso experimental drummer and electronic producer Sven Kacirek travelled to Kenya on an extended trip as part of the Project Tracing Dance He made a stack of live and field recordings which were later processed in his Hamburg studio and resulting in 'The Kenya Sessions' Neatly eschewing any stereotypical cliches, Sven has created a sensitive and subtle electronic collage weaved with the beautiful vocals of 80-year old female vocalist Ogoya Nengo and the traditional string instrument 'Nyatiti' played by Okumo Korengo, colouring his music with a broad spectrum of emotions and a deftly structured narrative that rewards and unfolds on repeated listens It sometime sounds like a Villalobos track that's taken a life of its own, or at others like Francisco Tristano transported to sunnier climes Quite lush

VLADISLAV DELAY | vantaa
Striking new album from Sasu Ripatti on Raster-Noton, the first of a projected series for the label It comes not long after the Vladislav Delay Quartet LP on Honest Jon's, but there's no avant-jazz or caustic power electronics to be heard on Vantaa - instead, the kind of clotted, dub-wise techno abstraction that blew us away on his recent Latoma EP, and which he's been both refining and complicating over the course of his illustrious career It's dense as anything, with complex rhythmic structures built up and then broken down before your ears, but for the most part calm and contemplative, full of oscillating synth textures that soothe even as the tumbling drums disturb and disrupt; it perfectly evokes the rural-industrial spaces of Finland, at once beautiful and brutal, organic and mechanized Each successive listen reveals new depths, and we're particularly smitten with dreamy closer 'Kaivue', which harks back to Vlad's early Chain Reaction material

PTTRNS | love quest 1
Almost exactly a year after the release of their debut Science Pinata LP/CD, Cologne's own Pttrns are back with Love Quest I and Love Quest II These 12`s are the first two installments of a theoretically infinite conceptual series of 12's, each consisting of a brand new Pttrns jam and a remix of a previously released song done by friendly artists The inception of the Love Quest series marks a tribute to the ever-evolving multiplicity that Pttrns aesthetic lays out: Formally manifested in the band's inclusion of a 4th permanent member, percussionist Hendrik Frese, the series opens up the band's material to participation and appropriation: The performers are equally spectators, listeners collaborators, everyone plays everything The format of Love Quest is no coincidence, then - High Hopes (Love Quest I) and Powder Structures (Love Quest II), Pttrns new offerings produced by Jan-Philipp Janzen at Von Spar's Dumbo Studios, touch on Disco, Boogie, Highlife and R&B, playfully focussing the series' theme with urgent, polyrhythmic delivery while showcasing an increasing concern for structure and arrangement - these are some straight dance records As is equally evident by the reworkings on the flip-sides: Lithuania's Downtown Party Network reworking of Diamond Life (Love Quest I), previously on Science Pi

TBCO is a brand new project It began with a simple Facebook posting of an unfinished song Silvestre Herrera, living in Buenos Aires, the mega-metropolis on the Rio de la Plata, admits that he found cumbia to be rather boring until its electronic rebirth Fortunately he changed his perspective, because the debut album 'Golazo' is connecting the flair of the cumbia villera and good produced minimalistic elements of elctronic music The significant stile with its dirty distorsions and amazingly deep droning, fast-flowing bass combinet with the dynamic pressure of urban beats and fresh tropicalism On the released album you can find also some remix versions of the well known soundfreaks 'Schlachthof Bronx' from Munich, 'The Peronists' from Argentina & and the belgradian Crew Shazalakazoo The 7" Vinyl EP is coming out with the heavy Club Remix of 'Schlachthofbronx' and the Cumbia track 'Bo D' Gh'
