Perlon Allstars - Superlongevity 6

Jul 17, 2017
perlon114When Perlon started releasing their “SuPERLONgevity” compilation series in 1999,it was not evident that the name,which had initially been chosen just for pun,would become a self-fulfilling prophecy.Now,Perlon is in its 20th year,indeed,and preparing the celebration of this anniversary,the label invites its listeners to enter the sixth round of illuminating expression,once more driven by playfulness and fluffy swingtime. This time,the journey extends to eight sides with no guidepost except maybe the order to set the controls for the heart of the potoo.18 tracks

Klon Dump - Klon Dump Versus The Open Air

Jul 17, 2017
acolour005 Five releases strong and A Colourful Storm is cementing itself as one of the most exciting labels to watch. They’ve even managed to surprise us with their most ahem, “functional” record yet. Four demented bleeps’n'bloops’n'bassliners with just enough sass, sub and a beautifully complex sound palette to boot. Our pick is the ‘Specialist’. Vital Sales Points: - Fifth release on Australian label A Colourful Storm - Premiered on someone’s Boiler Room (we can’t remember who) - Ricardo Villalobos’ favourite artist

 Since releasing his last album on Hypercolour in February 2016 (‘You Exist’), DMX Krew has not for one moment rested on laurels, releasing two further LPs on the Ekster and Abstract Form labels, as well as EPs and singles for Central Processing Unit, Shipwrec, Revoke and more. Continuing to remain faithful to the roots of electro, IDM and the deeper shades of techno, and without compromise, DMX Krew cranks out emotive and brain scrambling electronica at a mighty rate, and never disappoints. ‘Strange Directions’ is album number 21 from DMX

Oliver Koletzki - The Arc Of Tension

May 18, 2017 svt193lpOn his sixth album, The Arc of Tension, the Berlin based DJ, label owner and producer OLIVER KOLETZKI yet again presents his remarkable vision of contemporary electronic music, while he assumes the role of a storyteller. The Arc of Tension speaks to its listener as a singular, self contained work, which communicates by way of its natural flow and arc of suspense. The latter is mirrored not only in the multifarious narrative of the actual album, but can also be understood as evidence for its creator’s long musical history. While Koletzki focussed on a diverse range ofRead the whole story

Mat Chiavaroli - No Stranger To Madness

May 18, 2017 quintesse54Following a number of exciting tunes released on the renowned Quintessentials, here comes Mat Chiavaroli’s first long-player “No Stranger To Madness". Warm Fostex tape hisses and MPC swings, the guy from the Pescara hills delivers 10 tracks for both your dancing and listening pleasure. The A- and B-side tracks are drenched in dusty funk samples, gritty chords and syncopated rhythms. In “Aroma De Mi Vida” Mat chops obscure Rhodes riffs and layering them with more elements, just like in “Whoja Vu", a heavy-sampled disco juggler very closeRead the whole story

Raphael Danilo Feat. George Pappos — “Strangers, Nikkname, Innellea Rmxs” on PAULS MUSIQUE / FREERIDE MILLENIUM

DJ: “XLR8R: The EP lands with an original cut, titled "Strangers," and two remixes from German pair Innellea and Cologne artist Nikkname, both of whom flip the cut into enchanting interpretations. Danilo and Pappos' original takes cues from their home area on the edges of the Greek mountain Parnassos and the ancient sanctuary of Delphi and all three cuts focus on the stunning sound design and spiritual synth work from the Greek producers. Amevicious (La dame Noir / Nein / Blindetonation / Play Pal/ The Exquisite Pai) 'Un cool single mais trop different pour intégré mon dj set' Juan Soto (Nang / Electrique) 'what a beauty thanks a lot for this Raphael and George <3 This is something to contemplate with your eyes closed and allow your mind to go away for nearly 9 minutes into a deep introspective journey... ' Duncan Gray (Tici Taci) 'I'll be giving the Innellea remix a try, thank you!' Somerville & Wilson (Hell Yeah / ISM) 'Beautiful piece of electronic music! The Original does it the most for us. S&W' Chloe (Live At Robert Johnson / BPitch Control) 'Nice Innella remix' Paul Bonomo (Snax) 'Like the original best. Nickname Remix is also sweet. Cheers.' Patrick Vidal 'Innellea remix will be nice on the dance floor' Billy Scurry (Dublin) 'Good production and vibe' Alexander Robotnik (Hot Elephant Music) 'Innellea Remix for me' James Teej (Rekids) 'nice release, interesting soundscapes, liking the nikkname remix the best, nice odd vibes' Neil Scott (El Diablo Social Club) 'cool ep. really diggin the nikkname remix' Pulp Disco and The Outcasts (Her Majesty's Ship, Correspondant, La Dame Noir) 'Love the original and Nickname remix. Thanks!' Bruno (Xinobi (Discotexas)) 'Love it! every version.' Sean Johnston (Hardway Bros, A Love From Outer Space, Disco Bloodbath) 'Very deep, late nite gear!' Reza Athar 'the title track is pretty cinematic. Like the melodramatic vibe on it. Severino Panzetta (Horse Meat Disco) 'Pretty cool vibe Proton Radio USA (Presenter): full sound! Ibiza Global Radio SPAIN (Presenter): Nikkname remix kinda grabbing me X ”
