Tracklist 12” Vinyl:
A1. Stages – A2. FMFMFM — B1. Lunch — B2. ACD RDFND

Release Info:
NOSUCHKEY makes a bold debut on the Art of Memory label with a deadly four track EP of masterfully reduced but stylish and evocative minimal techno.

NOSUCHKEY is actually a side project from Nico Purman. He served up the first two releases on the label and this new alias is focused on straight forward techno.
Over more than a decade Purman has established himself on Vakant, Crosstown Rebels and Curle, and now heads in an exciting new direction designed to make a huge impact on the floor.

Opener ‘Stages’ is post minimal techno with a focus on mind melting melodic riffs that ripple over the rooted drums. It is sci-fi in style with a hint of Detroit
greats like Jeff Mills and really takes you into the future. The excellent ‘FMFMFM’ is another fluid bit of deep techno that is wired up with languid synths
constantly wrapping and warping round the drums. Keeping up the pressure is ‘Lunch’, with a stripped back but impactful techno style built on rubbery kicks and with modulated synth lines constantly
shapeshifting throughout the mix. Direct but dynamic, it is excellently timeless techno that leads on to closer ‘ACD RDFN’. There is urgency, paranoia and
cyber tension in this one that really keeps you locked as it journeys deep into a blackened yet cinematic cosmic abyss.

NOSUCHKEY is a 404 error and means the Specified Key does not exist.

Tracklist 12":
A1. Homeless Hearts
A2. Undercover
B1. Silence feat. Raphael Hofman
B2. Creature
Info:
Berlin native Florian Kruse has been a key part of the underground house and tech house scene for years now, and his productions have rightfully been bringing him plaudits for their emotional maturity. Finding a kindred spirit in German vocalist Hendrik Burkhard, as TheGround the pair have crafted a killer new album - 'Dediction', including these four exceptional tracks that will appear on the vinyl edition 'Dediction EP'.
'Homeless Hearts' exemplifies the duo's effect on each other - the slick, nuanced and spacy production gives way to a powerful groove, providing the perfect backing for Burkhard's dreamy vocal.
'Undercover' is a clear dance-floor killer, with Kruse's exceptional flair for programming meeting Burkhard's understated delivery.
Co-written by Raphael Hofmann 'Silence' explores some melancholic terrain before finding its way back to the floor via Kruse's & Burkhard's lush production.
The EP is concluded with 'Creature' - featuring a thick growling bass and precise, arpeggiated synth lines that cut through the mix like lasers.

Deo & Z-Man, the blood-brothers from Hamburg, pulled off one of the most creative feats of last year with their debut album, 'No Bullshit'; with zero BS but plenty of
inspiration, the pair melted together a range of influences with a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek humour for their underground opus. The remix LP to follow this EP solidifies their commitment to the eclectic, drafting in friends and family like Lee Burton, Erobique and Tigerskin to rework the magic. This 12" package of highlights from that the upcoming remix LP pulls together a selection of the ingenious remixes. 'Chopped Memories' transforms from a laid-back groove with elements of hip hop and the cosmic, to unhinged neo-electro in the hands of the mad scientist ARTTU. Shading in the gaps with static, sirens, and serrated electro edges, ARTTU makes for a deeply memorable and deeply quirky stomper.
Marc Schneider’s masterful remix of 'Iced Out Space Lazerlights' riffs on the noodly, outer-space groove of the original; providing a solid 4/4 framework with space, deepness and real dancefloor compatibility. SLG handles the delicate downtempo of 'Universal Neighbours' like a pro, using a light touch and playful keys phrasing to slowly transform the mood from pensive to hopeful to positively uplifting, it's a deep house anthem in the making. Smallville boss Julius Steinhoff finishes on a high by delivering a signature piece of tightly wound deepness with his take on 'Tales Of Love'; scaling back the sunny retro-disco of the duo's original for a taste of the classy and classicist house that Smallville is known and loved for.
Tracklist:
A1. Chopped Memories (ARTTU Remix)
A2. Iced Out Space Lazerlights (Marc Schneider Remix)
B1. Universal Neighbours (SLG Remix)
B2. Tales Of Love (Julius Steinhoff Remix)

Although their number of collaborations is small, the chemistry between Berlin trio Afrilounge and Stuttgart's own Patrick Chardronnet is an undeniable part of the Poker Flat story. The Chardronnet vs. Afrilounge production collaboration arrived with a bang in 2005 with the squelchy tech house jam "Just For A Little Peek"; it turned into a breakout hit of the Poker Flat Four Compilation, and became the project's production calling card, brimming with suspense and irresistible melodies.
Following that same year came the group's EP Phonix, which honed in on the budding sound of funky minimal house with an electro influence, and intricate, sample-driven rhythm patterns. Years later in 2009, with demand showing no sign of waning, "Just For A Little Peek" finally earned a dedicated EP re-release, enhanced by new remixes from Gabriel Ananda and Sarah Goldfarb. Now on Audiomatique Recordings, the studio magic of Chardronnet vs. Afrilounge returns for the stunning collection of new tracks that makes up "What About Us". The title track reveals a deeper and more contemplative mood for 2014, with a pensive piano loop, a dark-toned deep house swing, and a vocal sample that speaks to the experiences of the disenfranchised. Chris Lattner's remix of the same provides a punchier and more dramatic rhythm track for maximum impact and a more urgent effect. B-side production "Morning Poem" harnesses the power spoken dialogue again, with a big filter of distortion, and wispy, whirring deep tech sounds tha testablish a late night feel.
Tracklist:
A1. What About Us
A2. What About Us (Chris Lattner Remix)
B. Morning Poem feat. Phetote the Poet
