bondage12040: pornbugs - maritza (mihai popoviciu remix)

download snippets here

Bondage-Music head honchos Pornbugs prep the labels next release for early April comprising three original tracks and a remix from Mihai Popoviciu. Since 2006, German duo Pornbugs have been pushing their minimal yet ambitious dance floor orientated house music through clubs across the globe, with their label Bondage-Music acting as a catalyst for forward thinking music. Bondage-Music also works as an outlet for other talented producers including Romania's Mihai Popoviciu and inmotion music signee Markus Homm to further develop their sound. Fresh from a string of early 2017 digital releases from Frink and Sous Sol, April sees Bondage-Music's first vinyl offering of the year, kick started with the subtle and melodic cut "When You Are gone", which takes a deep groove and laces it with a plethora of soft synths and atmospherics. Mihai Popoviciu then reworks "When You Are gone" into a different entity, rewiring a headier groove into the track with raw-defined hats, building further tension with tight synth stabs and ethereal pads. "Innocent" then takes tribal tinged percussion to new depths, fuelling it with booming kicks and flourishing chords, further intensified by swirling vocals. A pure dub aesthetic then shines through "Maritza", as saturated drums and a rumbling low end provide the skeleton for swelling synths to meander alongside spiritual vocals, closing out the package (180gr pressing).

scoop002: rlb - bar64 (alain ho remix)

download snippets here

Wer mit deepen House und bassgetriebenen Tracks die Menge im Club hochjagen will, wird an "Bar 64" nicht vorbeikommen. Ein Track mit Ecken und Kanten, voller überraschender Effekte, die in Takt 64 mit aller Eindringlichkeit den nicht zu vermeidenden Hands-Up-Effekt fordern. Aufrüttelnd, die komplette Aufmerksamkeit auf sich ziehend, mitreissend, eigen. Ein unkonventioneller Drop nimmt auf den zweiten Schlag richtig Fahrt auf. Der Rhythmus ohne durchgängigen Open-HiHat, aber mit groovigen Percussions, untermalt von psychedelische Orgeln, die die tragenden Bässe jagen und so ziemlich jeden Subwoofer an seine Grenze bringen. Die Vocals an sich sind derart verfremdet, dass sie viel mehr an die hypnotisch treibende 303-Linie erinnern. Der mehrfach gelayerter Sound, mit einer vielschichtigen Soundstruktur sorgt dafür, dass "Bar 64" sich immer wieder aufs Neue in unsere Köpfe brennt. Die EP, die sich erfrischend neu von gängigen Club-Tracks unterscheidet, liefert drei erlesene Remixe, aus der Schmiede von Ridney (Cafe Mambo Ibiza), Alain Ho (Yellow Production) sowie dem Newcomer Samplicity, der mit "Bar 64" sein eindrucksvolles Debüt gibt. Während der "Ridney Remix" im unverkennbaren Sound als klassisches DJ Tool zu einer festen Größe im Underground avanciert, bettet der "Samplecity Dub Remix" die psychedelische Orgel in ein klassisches After-Hour-Club-Tool aus dem DJ-Kreis der Produzenten. Altmeister Alain Ho steuert mit seinem Mix eine etwas reduziertere Version bei, die stilsicher Elemente aus dem Original Mix zitiert und unaufdringlich in einem über acht Minuten andauernden Track münden - ein Hauch Cafe del Mar inklusive.

wild046: franz matthews - ostkreuz

download snippets here

Days of Being Wild continues their collaboration with Berlin based French producer Franz Matthews, releasing his first solo EP, the spacey, cosmic “Ostkreuz”. Half of the duo Languages, whose 1st EP the label released at the end of last year, Franz Matthews explores a very different sound on his first solo effort, all space disco, retro synths and funky guitars out. Title track “Ostkreuz” has been road tested by the Days of Being Wild crew on dance floors all around Europe all of last year and has created euphoria and anticipation in equal measure. This is a cosmic hit from outer space, all constructed around well known ingredients that thanks to Franz Matthews musical and melodic talent rise here to epic heights. The B-side “Guns Of Rixdorf” is another devastating peak time tune. While remaining in the same vein as “Ostkreuz”, it feels more high energy with its irresistible funky guitars calling and responding over a driving bass. Days of Being Wild always try to pair producers with remixers that will shed a new light on their work. It’s no exception with “Ostkreuz”, who gets the reinvention treatment from no other than Moscoman and Rodion aka The Claydermans. The cosmic vibe is still here hovering on top in the opening chords of the remix, but soon enough a sub, housier bass makes its way in the mix and won’t let you go until the end. Carried by shuffling claps and a bouncier beat, the groove here is totally re-invented, taking “Ostkreuz” from peak time to the darker edges of after land.

snork085: neil landstrumm - rock steady

download snippets here

His sound is a trademark. No other techno artist manages to combine influences from various genres such as hip hop, dubstep, or ragga in such an inspiring way as the Edinburgh-based "hardware master" Mr. Neil Landstrumm. And here he comes with 2 new stunning tracks on Snork #85. Again, "Take It Up" and "The Place" are a striking interaction of a multitude of different acoustic elements, full of intoxicating new sound patterns assembled by Neil's very distinctive signature style - dynamic, rough and thrilling. It's clearly nothing less than four forceful techno anthems infused by influences from dubstep and grime, which make you rock steady all night long.

minimood014: merv - blank

download snippets here

Minimood welcomes Copenhagen based master duo MERV for two tantalising new tracks, and thus continues the reductionist dub techno stance the label has been advocating lately. After 2 decades of silence, this new EP marks MERV's first new material and suggests that they have lost none of their magic touch. BLANK I is nine minutes of expert and exquisite dub techno. The kicks ping with an infectious thump, the dub chords are fantastically crisp and well crafted as they float in space and swallow up the drums. Widescreen and edgeless, warm dubby techno. BLANK II is a equally stripped-back and elegant dub techno affair as BLANK I, yet with a more upright and direct twist. Slapping hits and lively chords are riding above the rolling, loopy drums. A ride that will guide through the deepest nights. Vinyl Only!
