The Electronically Disturbed DeConstructed ReConstructed Edition
It's a 'Labor of Love' production… Please feel free to paper print this and give to a non-computer using, electronic music loving friend!
Ok, here's the rundown – This is an underground electronic music report/magazine distributed via the Internet, and the current and past issues are available on the Web at http://www.technotica.com . It includes news, views and reviews ala the jaundiced technotic eyes of Linda Leigh/Dj L3, RestlessRob, and whomever else we happen to have on board for that month. We are located equidistant from NYC and Philly as far as physical presence, and are represented via the magic of the Internet world-wide!
If you are a regular reader, then Howdy Partner!!!!!! And THANKS SO MUCH for all the fabulous support :-* Sorry that this issue is a tad late…I called this the electronically disturbed reconstructed 'ish because I had been trying out some dictation programs, and, well, a word of advice…don't keep a lot of text in the speech program clip-board 'cause yer gonna lose it! Make sure you copy and paste into your word processor! So far I like the IBM viaVoice over the Dragon Naturally Speaking….but I decided to do it the 'old fashioned ' way and just type it all into Word after that fiasco! And now, on with the show!
Well, well, well…..it sure has been hot around here in Technoticaville….Oh well, I guess that's what Summer is for - you know, to fry the brain a bit, getting the grey cells and stuff all weird and gooey - slowing you down whether you like it or not, making you take the low road so that perhaps you'll languorously drink in some experiences, feelings, sights, etc. for your chilly winter brain to cogitate about. In fact, I thought I saw signs of an early Winter here and there…and suddenly, it's Autumn! People are kinda shocked at how suddenly it changed - and then just as suddenly, the school year has begun, and life has taken on a more energetic, forward movement.
Oh my! What is all this esoteric, pseudo-intellectual spoutin about? (aside from the fact the the heightened reflexes I've developed from mixin 'n spinnin come in handy for swattin bugs right quick!) Ok, here's the deal…life goes on 24/7… Somewhere, all over the world, people are working, thinking, doing, playing - the world has become more of a single international community, a global commerce and trading arena…
Somewhere, at any given time, someone is looking for some fun. And the Net may be where to find it. A recent study has noted that there are more radio stations broadcasting right now on the Internet than you can receive via a short-wave radio! WooWhee! The Global Village is finally wired, and as far as we’re concerned, no music is more worthy of being the soundtrack of this new reality than that of the technotic persuasion.
Major music publications, such as ‘The College Music Journal’ have recognized the importance of this ‘Net’ music programming and are listing charts from a large number of respected I-net broadcasters, along with a healthy dose of editorial regarding this new medium and how it’s being utilized. Nonetheless, the fact remains that radio, real radio, will remain a great force of influence for a long time to come…that is until our cars are equipped with ISDN transmission capabilities and everybody on every economic level can have computer and Internet access.
And so, we are finding that the music of a more ‘underground’ sound, and that which is more experimental, or even, more esoteric is being disseminated thru so many channels that it’s hard to believe….a glance at our web statistics broken down by country is certainly revealing, and occasionally surprising! I, as well as many other Dj’s, producers and artists, continue to function as music ambassadors thru many of these channels…Live gigs, demo tapes, Real Audio and Internet radio broadcasts, traditional radio, and zines.
I’ve been hearing some laments about how ‘our scene’ isn’t so ‘underground’ anymore…well, yeah, a LOT more people are aware of it, and participate in it, either by going to parties, buying the music, supporting the scene by promoting, writing, Dj’ing….but until I hear something like ‘Circus Bells’ on the regular radio, or I see ‘Aphex Twin’ performing on Letterman or Leno, then, and only then will I agree that our scene can no longer be considered underground. Yeah, a lot people don’t perform live, or really aren’t that exciting to look at while pushing buttons on stage, and that in itself, makes all this even more unique and ‘underground’ ! The continuing saga of ‘the mystery producer’ is still in effect - exactly why the music is for getting lost in - the Dj shuns superstardom and instead becomes the conduit of exposure.
Party music…being ‘up fer it’, getting loose and crazy…playing it fast and loose…the clubs are rippin open with freight trains and sirens and wild acid lines a plenty! My God! It’s almost getting to a point, what, between all these crazy noises and more and more massive bass and combined with the high peak output performance of the recordings, and Holy Jeeze Man, it’s gonna blow the roof off the old joint now ain’t it...we’re all go go in a huge puff of subsonic-smoke ain’t we now? Hee hee!!!!! Oh My Gosh…..and then, ya see, ya got this crazy swing music, yes sir - they just weren’t satisfied with all that lounge revival wannabe and trip hop types…leave it to them to want The Real Thing, or some very creative approximations of it all…..filled with mayhem and glee..athletic, powerful, daring and provocative…and a damn fine time out I might add! Now these are soitenly some interesting times we live in, eh? ;->
Yeppers, here in America, and many other places in the world, the scholastic cycle has begun again. This annual beginning, taking place nine months into the year, has psychologically altered our perception of time, making September feel like the true beginning of the year (or the cultural year, at least), rather than Jan 1st! This is evident also in Internet hit numbers, which usually slump during August…but this year, our August numbers weren't too bad, actually reaching higher than July, and definitely, percentage wise, higher than last year…this may be because more people have net access at home now-a-days. The annual summer slow-down of new releases also was not as significant this year! I noted only about 2 weeks of lackluster newies from the distributors. Ah yeah…the world is getting to be ‘gettin kinda hectic all the time….looks like we're gonna have to take back the weekend for party time baby! Gotta let off the steam somehow!
In the Jungle scene the jump-up and hard-step styles are the most popular, with lots of peeps lovin it dark! There’s more innovations going on here keepin it all fresh with lots of experimentalism and craziness goin on…lots of musical chances being taken, takin it all further out there and attracting more interest and new people to its scene. There has been a lot of talk about D&B being ‘over’, but that’s just sillytalk…hey, if you wanna split straws, marching band music is D&B isn’t it? ‘Nuf sed!
LOTS of Disco - and more and more being pumped out each minute!! Oh my gosh, I do have to admit it’s fun and all, but, it tends to get a bit tiring, then a new tune comes along with disco elements that blows me away and I’m off again doin my special version of the Latin Hustle. A lot of clubs are going for special disco nights.
An Amazing amount of interest is being generated reviving 80’s sounds….check the remixes of Heaven 17! I’ve noted that at events billed as featuring Depeche Mode/New Order type music that that is what the crowd expects, they don’t want no new remixes!!! In fact, if you basically alternated ‘Everythings Gone Green’ with ‘Bizarre Love Triangle’ all night they seemed to be happy….I was nearly thrown off the decks when I followed the previous Dj’s slightly older remix of ‘Show Me’, I played the tamer version of the Advent’s ‘Everything Gone Green’ remix album…Jeeze, people were revolted…Argh, Techno! Then, a slight save, with Dj Hell’s Gary Neuman remix, and then back to the regular fare. There’s serious numbers of revival 80’s groups touring…Culture Club, et al….Depeche Mode keeps trying to hit it again, and this time enlists the usual tried and true method of getting the top remixers of the moment to give their stuff the UG/crossover treatments….the word on the street is that the Gus Gus mix has the highest chance of a crossover (they did a bang-up job on Bjorks ‘Hunter’ also!), and the others seem kinda disappointing…will they ever reach the heights of ‘Violator’/ Will David Gahan ever ‘get over it’, whatever ‘it’ is?
There’s a lot of folkes complaining about too much House being played, they want more techno! The techno mixes on the Technotica site always garner the most hits…everywhere I go I hear people saying they want it, the real stuff - banging, crazed, mental stuff. There’s no shortage of people making it, and the records are being sold. So where is it? Well. Outside of (those oh so rare and beloved) big-ass warehouse parties where hundreds, thousands of screaming happy dancers can get crazy and vibe off the music, lights, and each other for hours on end, the Dj’s are using the stuff as accents to their set, to take it harder at peaks, and padding tech-house, hard-house and progressive around it. There’s lots of Acid House being tossed about, and that’s like a hybrid, such as Tech-House is….shades of goth, mad industrial and rock flavas and resurgent pockets of HiNRG!….And there’s a growing awareness, a recognition of tracks that can stand alone…a song necessarily doesn’t have to have any singing in it, but a thematic or artistic expression of an idea, that has a purpose…a story, a theme. Hmm…maybe this last bit explains why Cabaret style stuff is really making a strong come-back…..and the wonderful live shows that go along with it all!
On the other side of the coin, but one that has been garnering greater attention, is the flowering of listening music….with or without beats, rhythmic, polyrhymic, cacophonic or discordant…music that captures the soul, feeds the head, and sometimes does funny things to your body parts….some call it ‘Intelligent’, but most just call it interesting…worthy of repeated listening and a loyal base of fans who appreciate the artist for their creations and are willing to explore new pathways.
Ah, how I love music, for it knows no boundaries, no states, no continents, no politics………With this new flowering of listening music, there’s tons of coverage for the beat/dance oriented stuff - but scant widespread info regarding the more ‘intelligent’ stuff. The term Ambient is now considered ‘passe’ by many, but new artists, with new machines and new ideas, are having a meeting of the minds with everyone and anything that crosses their path…they are using whatever is at hand to create, not knowing, and often not really even caring about the slot, the type, the label of the form. Classically and university trained musicians are collaborating and experimenting with street and dance artists and musicians, and are mining each other’s rich fields of knowledge and influence. There still always will be those who specialize, who lock themselves into a style or mode and dislike working outside of it - and this specialization can be cool, especially when it leads to excellence, wondrous advances and refinements of an asthetic.
EATING- Sushi, Garlic Pizza, Red Wine (or just plain old purple grape juice or grapes themselves, it does the same thing, healthwise, but it isn’t as fun as the wine, eh?! Well, actually, grapes can be fun if yer a creative type!)
DRINKING- The current beer of the house is Sol. Other beverages include juices with good nutritional and brain stuff in them…I was enjoying some ‘Super Nectars’ from Nantucket Nectars, especially the Green Angel with Spirulina and Green Algae, and a Protein one…but it looks like Sobe has nudged them out of the market in many areas…now Sobe is Ok, but the Nantucket ones were way superior!
WATCHING- The Simpsons, South Park, The Super Adventure Team, The Big Lebowski, the stars on a clear night, the signs of the changing of the seasons, traffic patterns…
READING- The Starr Report, and um, not much time for reading these days!
PLAYING- Music By Numbers! Really, try it! Go to- http://www.forwiss.uni-erlangen.de/~kinderma/musinum/musinum.html
And, check out ‘Internet in a Baby’ for an interesting way to get you to explore some cool art, at http://www.wideweb.com/baby/
Magic! Get a load of some mysterious stuff at - http://trendy.org/magic/interactivemagic.html
WEARING- Whatever is clean, fits the occasion to an extent, looks good on, and is comfortable. Bonus points for…some addition of brown and occasional, subtle humorous touches.
MARVELING ABOUT- The sheer complexity of it all and how anybody manages to keep anything organized.
HOPING FOR- Some sense being knocked in people’s heads about the stupidity of terrorism and the realization that, ultimately, we are one world.
Every issue we review the most interesting rekkids we can get our paws on….For over a year we broke things up into 3 catagories, the 3 playlist that help establish the form for this e-zine, they were – Top Technotic Tunes (for Technoid stuff), Bassment Beats or Fabulous Funkers ( for all the dancin funk, house and breakbeats), and Heavenly Head (for experimental, ambient, etc). The past year we’ve tried to classify this stuff further, separating things into Techno, Trance, Deep House, Tech-House…. Sometimes we rank them, rate them…etc. In our continuing efforts to help the reader get more of a feel of a tune. But, as the music progresses, and the ‘types’ blur into each other, the pure definitions sometimes don’t apply – so, for this month let’s put things back into those 3 categories just for sanities sake!
A 1 to 6 scale is used, 6 being the most amazingly great, 1 being not on here.
T60 VINCE WATSON - MUTATOR EP - PRIMATE COLLECTORS…Part of the 10" color series….and part of a secret plot to destroy and reprogram your brain! This is seriously banging stuff with enough sonic boom to move the room! ‘Mutator’ has constant streams of percussion, talking strums, and big rolling beats that make you feel like you’re being tossed about in an 15 foot aluminum row-boat in the high sea. ‘Glow’ drives, rolls, gallops in with percussion in the forefront. Cool cowbells, deep ‘n bleepy bass keeps it trippy and ravey, Woo!
T60 GEOFF DA CHEF - VOODOO - BLOWN RECORDS…A must have hardcore rekkid from the home of the Bloody Fist! Australia! The logo side has the pre-requisite "fuck"s, while the info (B) side goes for the crazed fun that great hardcore does so well. On the A, there’s drama galore to be found here, along with good use of breakbeats, voval samples, rock ‘n roll elements, hovering hasrhness and insane beats on ‘Voodoo’ & ‘Welcome to Deterioration’. On the B side, ‘Dirty, Funky’ is really neat, starting out with some old-school electro-like sounds and gets all distorted and crunchy with big bass drops and the vox all chopped ‘n shit, "Yo Yo, get funky!". Then ya got ‘Quick Cold One’. Crazy fun dedicated to frat pareties and places everywhere where people gather to quaff the suds and check their hed!
T60 *H - GROUP TACTICS - BLACK & WHITE…Rave vibe alert! 3 tracks of wild mayhem for you here! ‘Bushwacker’ is intensly involving as it talks and loops and gallops of with driving claps, military percussion and washes of high hats. On the flip, ‘The Forge’ is mental and deep driving with excelelnt sounds, pounding 1234 beats, acid and percussion. ‘Tone Defeat’ is a gem! Wild clanging and looping mental sounds, running beats and percussion all cometogether for that oh-so-perfect vibe flush!
T6 ARTICHOKE SOUNDCLASH - ABLE&STUPID TECHNOLOGIES…Great record! 2 sides to this 10"! ‘Dub Star’ is an amazing techno stomper with super-bass attitude – bangin doubled beats, acid whips and space signals give this baby depth. ‘Ducking’ has got galloping beats with a grinding and choppy thick bassline made of acid.
T59 W MOON - ALTERED VIBRATIONS EP - METRO JUICE…Manic, intense crashing and running and having a blast! Great sounds and effects for some serious crazed ‘n clattery fun…check ‘Kurama’ for a wonderfully ruffed up digeradoo sound! ‘Flowing Out’ goes for some deep, serious fun with shooting acid, organ pulsings and huge steppin beats that’ll smack you upside da hed! ‘Top of Bottom’ is plain old crazy…looping, and rubbing with fast squidjin and causing extereme chaos!
T59 I LINER - BELTWAY – PARALLEL…4 cuts of varied shades of techno – from smooth, to experimental, to electro like, to slammin! ‘Beltway’ seems to be the main cut – and the biggest! A deep, grind ‘ groove atmospheric, shall I say, intelligent piece of music. Lots of neat elements combine gracefully as it gets a bit horney ‘n pushy in a nice way with some poppity stuff and acid reminiscent of Meat Beat. Velocette does a remix of it, ‘6/8 Version’ that has glittery pulsing synths and poppity percussion tumbling playfully, sqeekin and squeelin – sweet. ‘Improvisation with Static Rthym’ soiunds like a classroom project…one that will really get your booty shaken and yer feet stepppin! With floppity deep driving beats, clear bongoes, and like, out of knowehere, all kinds of great hypnotic and cool pulsings and layers of horney horns appearing around you, and then it fades off slowly and sweetly in a Germanic sort of alien bug sound sort of way…primal fun!
T59 AURALIZER – POWER DUST EP - SUBSOUNDS…Nearly essential techno tunage! This rekkid goes where I go, and Damn, it sure works a treat everytime! ‘Permafrost’ is the real star in this mostly stellar bunch. It has this amazing sound in it that can nearly instantly create a thick-ass rave vibe whenever/wherever dropped! I swear! Fer instance, I played this on the net show with a live chat, and people started talking faster, and getting all silly…and the next week, played in on the radio, and phone calls started coming in one after the other, just to say "Hello!" & they were "really enjoying the show"….and it gives me shivers! Next as good are ‘Straight 4-ward’ , a chill and deeply funky flyer, and ‘Overdrive’ a really strong percussive huge stomper getting all crazy feeling with gurgly scrapings and submarine blips. ‘Dynamix Articulation’ is great for those moments when you need a bit of wild confusion is yer life…it’s got big steady heavy beats to stomp to and lots of twirlin and running to get that carbon off the valves!
T58 SENICAL - A DARTK RAID OF MADDNESS - DIGITAL HUT…3 awesomely good ‘n hard tracks, and 3 tool pieces, 2 of lovely synths ‘n stuff, and 1 of dramatic layers of noise, beats, buzzins and scraping. But they all are called ‘Drom’ and then identified by numbers. ‘6’ has rolling, heavey beats, electric schocks, acid shoots and a vix…it would sound amazing on a big system! ‘4’ has fast and thick layers of pounding betas, shakey percussion, acid stabs, and voices singing deeply underneath, kina eerie! ‘1’ is insane drama, fast, mental and huge!
T58 RANK – EAT IT WHILE IT’S COLD – MINIMALISTIX…Techno Bomb, Bay-bee, watch out below!It’s all great stuff that’s very mental and hard in an involved way, very well programmed. ‘Paperjam will thickin the vibe and drive ‘em so mental that’ll they’ll all be grinnin with the rectus of a beaty queen, it’s got the thing! ‘Klaphat’ & ‘It’s Called Weird’ are intense and strong clackety and insistent groovers interwoven with good stuff, while ‘Wap-And’ is more of a subltle brain tease using trancey whoo-whoo pulsings and Caribbean steeldrums to good effect.
T58 CLAUDE YOUNG - THE DARKER PLACES - DJAX UP BEATS...Wonderful techno tools that are great to hook up tracks and keeps the energy and interest up with their complex programming and well executed ideas. Kinda takes the Traktor series a bit further.
T57 PIG SNORTER – ROUTEMASTER…Rip snorten fun here y’all! Yee-ha acid. ‘Maurauder’ is a powerful wikkid stomper with acid fly-bys, acid strums, and acid. On the Logo side is, ‘My 909’s Got a Picture of Chris Liberator on it’ is so totally wild!!! Horney and manic acid banging and looping with a repetative humming and shouting…I have no idea what he’s saying, but I’m flailing, ok? Ok!
T57 DOM – FACKELN IM STURM – HARVEST…well, here’s some moody and rough-edged acid. 2 cuts of the title cut that has a great deep vocals. A Popacid Mix, (that re-mix they did of ‘I’m Not In Love’ ain’t bad!) that’s growling and horned out, and a Auftrieb Mix that’s crunchier and very staticky, neat! On the flip, ‘Funkturm’ is a bit different than the others, horney and beepy, switch-steppin with acid and hard beats. ‘Der Rauber und der Prinz’ has a similar feeling to the A side cuts, but is faster moving and forgoes the vocals for some very interesting efx that sound like voices.
T57 DDR & THE GEEZER - DRUGS WORK – COSH…Um, well, to be accurate, yes, they do. Ya know, whenever I hear some brain-washed kid repeat the mantra of most drug education programs, :drugs are bad…" I must beg to differ strongly, why, if it wasn’t for Tylenol, a drug, I would still have a headache now, and thanks to Aldomet, a drug, my Aunt’s blood pressure is controlled….why …never mind…Anyway, this rekkid is a corker !The title cut has a very thick and funky acid line, slammin beats and percussion and repeats, ‘Drugs Work’. On the flip, ‘Spades’ is all that! Rock and Roll acid at it’s best, totally goin off with strummin acid, breakbeats followed by huge 4x4’s, and a great break with Lemmy screaming "That’s the way I like it baby, I don’t wanna live forever!’
T57 BERND MAUS – PARALLEL(=) – GADGETS…the main cut ‘Static’ is so very lucious! A deep rolling sonic switch-stepper with percussive washes and long waves of pulsings throughout. Flip for ‘Parallel’ , a snapy steppin piece that’s strong and aggressive with gurgly ruff reps. ‘Vertical’ is more experimental…big, slow huge bass slapy hits, buzzin, clattering percussion, flying synths and an hi-pitched sound give a kind of creepy fun feeling!
T57 AUBREY - STRAIGHT AHEAD INVADERS – OFFSHOOT…Yeah Babes! The A’s sure are rulin! Beween Aubry and Angel Alanais, my heds sure getting set just right! On this 2 sider, ‘Invader’ is tops!! Bangin, rollin, percussive, acidic, crispy, chewy, funkmental…in other words – wikkid! ‘Straight Ahead’ on the flip, is a booty-movin funky disco step ‘n roll number with shakey percussive backed beats and sawing acid turns…be warned though, it ends very suddenly!
T56 TUBE JERK - STRETCHER – ILL…Banging! =:-O An intense percussive driver with truly mental goings that actually is kinda funky and deep. ‘Tube Jerk’ on the flip is equally intense. Deep with supa-sub bass, long synths and percussion, it’s a chill mental stepper that drives it’s point home with a huge sound!
T56 LA WILLIAMS - DISTANT SIGNALS –CHISEL… ‘Traynor’ is such a great track, especially if you like horns! Dig it! It’s got some balls as it stomps around with windswept filtering washes and neat trippy sounds, a definate at-ty-tude! On the flip, there’s ‘Sequence’ a hypnotizing percussive brushed and washed workout that’s deeply stomping with gurblings of acid, tracky and deeply trippy in a very late night, where the hell am I kinda way!.
T56 DELTA –2 - MINIMALISTIX…Great assortment of minimal techno for your box that goes over real well! ‘Amnesia (Just Close Your Eyes)’ has a kinda spooked out sample from a guy that’d probly really be enjoying all this wikkid music if he were around. It’s a buzzin ‘n bangin choon with steady hits and military style drums and a cool steppin rhythm. For some real mayhem, check ‘Mental Abduction’ as it gallops along with elastic acid leaving significant weird and twisted sounds in its wake! ‘11KHz’ is a redo a 10KHz (from #8) that has added pumping bass to this twisted zip ‘n flippy banger leading the hooty-hoot off to pop! ‘Ice-Cream Flavour’ is a stompin doubled beaty percussive driver with echoes, and some whistley and horney sounds whipping and pulsing that has a really cute feel.
T56 BLUELIGHT"ISMS" 2 - ORGANIC – LOCAL 101…Thse guys are going gangbusters! Their newest release on Planet Rhtthm is awesome also! ‘Organic’ is aptly titles as it slowly grows and delelops, feeling like it’s pulling something out of you that gradually starts to break free, as it now urges you along with gruffly fluffed slappy beats, hats, pulsings of organs and trancy trippy sounds…it really seems to talk to you as yer lost within it. ‘Layer Active’ is moving acid that pulses and pounds along with streaming percussion and intricate rthym patterns rise and fall as the beats take you over.
T55 NEOPHYTE - REAL HARDCORE *Pic Disc* - ROTTERDAM…Oi, Oy! Man, this shctuff is ruff! Arg! You gotta hear ‘Braincracking’ , along with the general and expected mayhem, a lovely, seemingly innocent girl warbles, "that’s the sound of your brain crackling…" Indeed! It alone, is worth the price of this rekkid! ‘Punk Motherfucker’ is pretty good too…kinda nasty, but sometimes a bit of the nasty is pretty good.
T55 MIKE FALTISS - DEAD CHANNEL - BASTARD LOUD…Great and accessible hardcore here! It’s crazy enough, hard enough, and does that thing that it’s supposed to do – and they all go over really well in lots of different crowds. ‘Skeptical’ & ‘Material Damage’ are like traditional hardcore techno, big, raw, marching with manic beats and great sounds. On the flip, ‘Defective’ has a rock ‘n roll feeling with a metal guitar, anvils, thick scrape-backs and drum rolls. ‘Black Jack’ has a funny rap, cool 4x4 HC beats and neat old-school-isms.
T55 DJ RUSH - HOMECOMING EP - HIGH OCTANE…A popular record as seen on many charts…a powerful one as heard on many a system! I was playing ‘Powewrball’ a lot around the time of that HUGE lottery drawing in the state of Delaware, hopin maybe it’d make Lady Luck smile on me. I didn’t win that lottery, but this tune sure is a winner! A grinding ‘n shooting, stomp ‘n brush percussive driver with all kinds of acid and squidging, yeah, hittin t5hat pony and galloping, yeeHa! Also, on side A is ‘Slickster’ using big bass beats and shooting acid undergrinding with clanky gated pulsings and light constant sticks all combining hypnotically. The flipside offers 2 more percussive marchers with ‘Safety’ bneing the more inetersting as it’s deep and develops slowly with a neat breakdown and lots of shooting acid.
T54 SAFETY SESSION - CRESCENDO EP - DRUM CODES…I don’t know what so supposed to be so safe about this, or perhaps it’s a lesson in safety, placing such a deep sense of alarm in you that you lock all the doors and windows and hide….casue it’s comin to get ‘cha!!! A strong drummy, rolling percussive stepper on the main side that’s kinda exotic and primal. On the flip, 1 is deep, dark, turning and floppity with clear sharp 4x4e beats and harsh percussion, while the other has blowing beats that a rollin out some fast percussion.
T54 ABC OF ACID - LITTLE BOY DRUMMER – TIDE…B side, ‘Bobskuns’ is
the acid gem on this 2 tracker outa England. Very cool keys strummin, the
acid buzzin, huge 4x4 stompin beats backed by claps makes for excellent
pulsing patterns of persuadion to program petulant people into partying!
This is a deep, kinda acid-trance thing of old. The A side,’Little Boy
Drummer’ I could see being used in any club that went for that Playboy
kinda of vibe. A steppin 909 drum beat , squidgy wiping acid, and faraway
stick hits and echoes, along with buzzin acid is accented by some repeating
phrases, "D is for drums", "They make a loud noise"
and "please join in and sing".
T53 SIGRID - THE NORM – ELECTRET…This is Emmanuel Top label, and his influence is felt thru both cuts on this. ‘Belong to the Bogey’ starts with some cool sounds, an alarm bell goes off and repeats as the beat fades in and goes off into stompin big bass 1234 beats as signals signal all thru creating a very deep and thick vibe that drills into you with expert precision. ‘The Norm’ on the flip is trancier, a bit eerie with deep steady beats and french voices.
T53 KIM RAPATTI - LIMITED 6 - DUM LIMITED…Tools, not of ignorance either! 3 intricate, deep, hypnotic and throbbing tracks. Use them, abuse them, treat your friends and neighbors to these dubbed out hard and steady bassy growlers
t53 BLUROOM - INFRARED RECORDINGS…More of that sample, why do all trhese people want us to close our eyes, is there something we are not supposed to see, or, oh, I see, look, the notes are making patterns in my head…ok! This is actually some pretty good dream trance on ‘Close Your Eyes’ . A woman repeats the title as chill percussion and watery sounds segua to a lovely piano and gated synths and a steady deep steppin beat. On the flip, ‘ It’s all a Bit Weird’ is some darned good acid that really gets going doing lots of cool stuff along it’s pewrcussive path.
T52 SILENT BREED - SYNC IN - TRACID TRAXX…Eh, stick with the original, and that’s on here, so if you don’t have it on vinyl, get it!
T52 LIGHTMAN - DAWN FLYER EP – RAYGUN…No track names, but 4 cuts, 2 of which (both on the Logo side) are good, with the first one being a really good big deep stomper ( slight Goa feel) that’s real intense with drive-by horns and a cool drop out. The second is spacey, sort of electro that’s popity and harsh with experimental electronics.
RJ53 THE MAD BATS – BATWORLD/WAKE THE TOWN – C&S… ‘Batworld’ is a very tripped out, deep and spacey reggae numer with a cool song and beat voices looped in the back…a nice long sip! There’s also a shoreter ‘Radio version’. ‘Wake the Town’ is a cool prize! I wish iyt were longer than it’s 4:44 time…it’s some great bassy ragga-jungle that breaks down to lovely atmosheric synths. "Wake the town and tell the people!"
F60 FEOS VS M/S/O - ID'S EXPERIENCE – PV…I cannot tell you how many times I heard this palyed at the big 3 day Family Affair party…it had been released as a limited edition the week before, and lot’sa jocks were showing it off…um, well, ok, I admit it, I even brought my copy to fit into the last quarter of my set when I transitioned from techno/to tech-house with a touch of disco, and this one worked really well..I didn’t realize how well until I heard everybody droppin it! Powerful stuff, with the logo cut being a bit deeper, and the info side really stompin all over…huge beats, strummed acid, saewings underneath, zip backs, sharp percussion and washes flow in and the whole thing just builds beautifully as it poicks up intensity, filters a bit, and breaks into a really cool vocal with a disco toiuch! Massive!
F58 VON STIENER – RESOLVE…I believe this is an offshoot label of that real good ‘Circulation’ series. ‘Was it Good For You’ is more like techno, but with the deepness and smoothness of house. Pumping 4x4 beats with much crisp brushiness, a deeply affected repeating whisper, twirling synth accents, and a growing sense of urgency, with the famous ‘come on ecstacy pulsing rhtym line! ‘A Change is as Good as a Rest’ is a light-hearted poppity, cantering deeply groovin sweet steppin house with lovely flute snatches and synth pulsings.
f57 SUPER DISCOUNT - VOL 2*PRIX CHOC - DIFFERENT...3 delicious pastries to indulge in! Yum, Roy Davis Jr shows ‘Roy’s Love 4 Paris’, a cool ‘n dancey disco big bass 4x4 clear beaty thing with whooshing air, bongoes, piano melody, vox shoots, and some Samba. On the flip, 2 more tasty treats await – Alex Gopher with ‘Free Tax Mix’ and ‘Cosmo Vitelli Paye Tout Avec Sa Carte de Crecy Mix’ which are both chill funky delights with the former being more mving ala some disco Shaft and big steppin bass beats, and the latter more spacious with cool beats, echoey effects, and more experimentally inclined with a touch of jazz.
F57 DJ SANDY VS HOUSETRAP - OVERDRIVE/DISCO HIGHWAY – NITRIC…Lot’s of you have that huge Housetrap rekkid from a few years ago, everybody could play it in their sets whether housy or hard. This one has a cut, ‘Dico Highway’ that’s a similar jobber. A big steppin 4x4 grinder building and filtering dicodey house loops that gallop off whipped by acid, pwing pwing sounds and a looped vox as it builds drama via tension and explodes! ‘Overdrive’ is a fine dico grind ‘n stomp that filters and a rep vox of the title.
F55 KEROSENE - FORCE INC… Electro-loves the acid and the vocoders, and there’s plenty of both on this rekkid! ‘Love Jam’ repeats the title withbig mod pace beatsa, neat percussion and acid, layers of it subtly accenting the original line. ‘Scientologic Ourput’ also repeats the tile along with a rawer, ruffer sound with tough acids, twisted sound manipulations, percussion runs and hits, long synths, and cowbells…it nearly has an industrial edge. ‘She Killed My Business’ is an eltro-lized lament with some gut saying how this chick left him for another man, and he doesn’t understand why cause he gave her everything, and now look, she’s ruined all his plans. It’s a cool runny jam with lots of great spacey effects. That kinda weird and fun thaty’s deep yet accessable…cause we’ve all need more than diamond rings to make us stay, eh? J
F55 CHRIS LUM – THE QI(CHI) EP – EATKNOWLEDGE RECORDINGS…Lovely package! Side a offers a guide thru ‘The Seven Stages of Acupuncture’. It’s 1 long track, kinda separated into the stages (insertion, location, penetration, etc) but functions as a journey of imagination in totality, as well as being a chill stepper! It starts with bright housey overtures as a beat sneaks in, some sticks, and a flying mutating organ – it’s all together now, steppin nice as it builds and drops the break, and Bam! Strong beats take off and it feels good with neat bass plucks, and the tones grow sweeter and stronger and pulse along with the beats and percussion. Now yer awake and refreshed! On the flip, have 2 mixes of a ‘Herbal Remedie’, choose ‘a’ for a beautiful deep stepper with lovely pulsings that inticalty grow and change. Very brushy, with light claps as it takes you into cool bassy rhtyms with shakins as far away long sweet sounds all coome together for a happy rush and it gracefully exits with spacey efx. Choose mix ‘b’ fpor a similar, but dreamier journey that adds an excellent horn.
F55 WEATHERHEAD - EATKNOWLEDGE…2 sides of great groove step. ‘Expendable I’ goes along nice, deep, strong and funky while neat sounds (like ducks!) come in and out. Cool fly bys and acid gurgles add to this mix that kinda grows and changes as it progresses. ‘Expendable II’ is the one! Strong elastic 1234 beats backed by subtle layers of military-like percussion and sticks, as ruff growls urge it along with subliminal bleepyness grows and scrapes low down with enough changes to keep you interested!
F54 CREW 69 – DUB CROSS – MEDUSA…The title cut is slammin! Echoe’d vox reps and Diva shouts goes off into disco heaven and Moves-it! ‘On the flip, ‘Real Happy’ is pleasant disco…a lovely step ‘n smile brushy piece with bells and cool vocal drop-ins. ‘Bug Love’ is kinda trippy ‘n tribal with a disco base, deeply stomping with funky flavors goiun up and down yer spine.
F54 CARIHNOSO PROJECT - S/T - YELLOW PRODUCTIONS...2 sides of jazzy house from 2 different groups of producers. ‘Baianihas’, by Prassay & Chessy D is a very deeply funky ‘n filtered stepper chillin with disco and jazz elements. ‘Dj Gregory, Romatt & Adam Scott give us ‘Hypnose’, a clubbier track, goin 1-2, 1-2, boom piss beats with brushy percussion and Samba elements that gets some real funky bass going and is kinda trippy!
F54 BORGMAN – BOWLFIRE/JAZZFADE – CABINET…A quality label with more of that good blend of house and techno elements makin just good tuners for the happy-smiling dancefloor. Utilizing bass, jazz, funk and tribal elements, these 3 cuts a bright sunny day steppers with lush atmospheres, cool muted organ, and all around good feelings.
F53 DEPTH CHARGE - DISKO AIRLINES - DC RECORDINGS...There’s the original and 4 mixes of the title track, and then something else called ‘Pyschophone Voices. That one there is really cool! Kinda weird and eerie with spooky electrified voices, deep ‘n buzzy shocky acid and some ;lady looking for "Francois" who may just be a pussy…cat. Now for the title cut itself, it opens with a womans voice callling the cities, goes into some dramatic but chill funky breaks and gathers up some cool acid, long strings and exotic far-away feelings and gets a bit wild ‘n deep and the baby’s laughing! The ‘Tet Air Mix’ is similar, with more of a disco feel, sharp bass kicks and some Samba drumming. ‘Drum Parts 1 & 2’ are like tools for this mix-up, with the first having lots of neat sounds like helicopters, heart arrythmias, deep whips, shakey percussion and some tribal elements. The second is more of a repetive riff thing.
F50 NYLOSPHERE - KALAHARI SUNRISE – VELOCITY… Ny’s James Nylon. The title track here is a stompin deep percussive house with Eartha Kitt samples and lots of funky and trippy elemets. The ‘Ana-Log’ mis is a bit groovier and chiller with the same vox. On the flip, ’So Beautiful’ is some deep shffle ‘n step disco flavored acid with male vox and female singing reps that’s moving! The ‘Ana-Log’ mix of this is very cool and funky getin deep and trippy, again keeping the vocals of the origianl intact.
f5.7-PERFUME TREE – WORLD DOMINATION…2 beautiful and ethereal pieces of music here that are very versatile. ‘ Too Early Too Late (Pimp Daddy Nash mix)’ is just gorgeously atmospheric with a lovely female vocal, "…<<<??check--calling your name…." along gentle builds of percussion and beats that combine with spacey sounds and beautiful synths for a very trippy effect. Sproingy hits then break out into cool reversed rockin loops as it goes deep again, pulling together and breaking out with strong rolling break-beats and a cool pulsing horn...then gently fades off…ahhh! ‘Instantaneous (Ian Mac mix)’ is also very ethereal…almost Goth like. Beaty beats, flutey pulsings and brushy percussion rides along moody deep female vocals and sonically dense tones wavering. Acid injections and more assertive beats take over as the mix progresses, pulling you in deeper into this moody stew of sonic bliss…then floats gently away.
e57 ELECTRIC SHEEP - LOCUST LUNCH - MUSIK AUS STROM…7 tracks in a variety of pleasing deep listening fodder. I love ‘Into’ and ‘Locust Lunch’ used together for a mind-trip back to a child’s summer at the sea-shore, walkin the boardwalk, and riding the big wheel! ‘Smile Without a Cause’ is really nice! It’s swwet in an odd way with cute warped pop/tick/bloop electronics. ‘You Never Know (live)’ used D7B elemts dubbed and scraped with lowdown keys. The 3 on the flip are all spacier. Trippy beats, good feelings, squirpy quirky electronics on ‘A New Hope’. ‘You Never Know (Remix)’ is a deep introspective journey with winding acid, and brushy muted dubbed layers of bell tones. Last up, a tool of spacey traffic with ‘Come out to Play (Outro)’.
E56 RHYTHM AND SOUND - SPEND SOME TIME w/ TIKIMAN – BURIAL MIX…Very deep and dubbed out Reggae with a male chill good song, that’s blunted 2 da max on the ‘Spend Some Time’ mix! ‘Version’ on the flip is dreamier, with the vox elements echoed within.
E55 RHYTHM AND SOUND – WHAT A MISTRY w/ TIKIMAN – BURIAL MIX…A bright and cool reggae song, the ‘Mistry Version’ on the flip keeps the brightness shining thru the mystery of deep clattering and trippy mist.
E54 AEMIC - ALEPH - MUSIK AUS STROM…Some of the most marvelous packaging
(I almost want to place a plain sleeve on it to preserve the oriinal!),
pressing and overall design for this much-ballyhood IDM stylee label. This
release is a bit more esoteric than the other reviewd here. 3 slices of
bell tones, spaceyness, deep gurgles and swipes, ticks, and slow dramatic
FULL LENTH AND CD RELEASES
**RACHO RELAXO ALLASTARS – LIVE AT LUV PARADE – DISKO B…Scientists & scoundrels, musicians and maniacs, lovers and laughers, philosophers and poets, troubadours, troublemakers…all these words, and oh so much more just hints at the make-up, and all-over personality and production from this motley crew – and I love all of ‘em! One of the things I always know whenever I approach a recording with the name Abe Duque (or one of his many nom de plumes) is that I’m gonna experience something…different usually, frequently fun– and always with a sharp intelligence and keen eye. This project is a bit different, starting with the fact that there are 13 dicernable (for the most part) cuts, but there are no mention of separate tracks or any track names. The diligent and creative Dj though can mine out some real gems to use and abuse! It all starts out with manipulated voices all tripped out, as omnious beats rise up with deep, dark feelings, add some acid and it all gets very involving. Next up, check in with our gal Sal interviewing a young scenster and slide into an odd spacey place as we progress to hypnotic deep beats, "Run, run, run", let your mind run to exotic places and feel the warm Latin breeze caress your cheeks as track 4 takes you omn a pleasant journey…things get a bit deeper for a bit, buzzin ‘n cracklin with cool bass waves and by track 11 tumbling beaty beats brush up a track with percussion deeply and progress to a primal state of sexy space. Finish up in a trippy deep space as random beats fire deeply, slowly…listen to the voices.
**MATMOS…*Warning*** The auralization of this composition as a unit (with the exception of track#9 ‘Verber amplified synapse’, which by itself is extremely hazardous!) may result in actions and reactions that, um, that may induce, um, hypnotic effect….technotic achievement…um, oh, the beats on this one are real soothing, slow, deep, primal…Oh Hi! Ok, lemme tell ya, this CD has been in permanent rotation both in personal and demonstration/radio use…and everytime I start to write about it, reviewing each track in turn, I get to the middle of track 9, and then just lose it…well, actually, I’d lost it actually round ‘bout track 1, ‘It seems’ (also one of RR’s faves!) Gurgly sounds and frog sounds grow, a machine starts and stops as the piece takes on some jungly cues with a timestreched vox, "he was destined to die." Things continue deep, eerily quiet and starngle choppy, then track 3 goes into a long tribal/primal journey with lots of neat underpinnings and some twirly bass (‘…and silver light popped in his eyes’) ‘Lunaire’ is a strange dream…deep, bleepy, with the beats off & on, it brushes, scrapes, sigfnals, gurgles and howls. ‘This is…’ really cool! A voice repeats the title against deep gurgling water, silvery tapping percussion, cool badss and jungly stuff…spacey twinklins get strong and it all slides into the murky depths, Oh! The water! The next 3 tracks are funky and odd sound manipulations – of guitars, machines, and of the sound of sound itself. The next track is the infamous one I first mentioned…Big acidic beats are overwhelmed by all kinds of crazy acid and machines weirdly wired and powered by steam…then, it goes resally deep! Buzzin with rthymic intensity and ticks, clicks…down the sewer and thru the pipes it gushes out in spurts Right in the middle of traffic! The last 2 tracks will basically sustain you in the state you are now in after going thru al of that! They are deep and dark…bellds, long chains of metal beads, labored breathing, twinkly air…footsteps…Oh man! Hey, read an interview with these guys here- http://www.stiction.com/issue_9/matmos.htm
E58 SIN – INSINUATION – ABUSE…Oh Mona! Mistress of mood. Prepare yourself for a wonderfully emotional filled and lushly arranged experience. Mona Moore & Andy Orel have lived a life of dedicated artistic expression, and coming from Vienna have that certain sensibility regarding sex, life, and love that that area is well known to produce. Encompassing many elements including a gothic sensibility combined with sometimes low-down, sometimes ethereal vocals make for a very involving and inducing atmosphere. What it induces is up to you! Tracks I’m real partial to are: ‘Blind’ -a deep moody lovely song with goth and jungly influences, ‘Dancing Barefoot’ - chill, moody, with a slightly familiar feeling along with a really good song, it really is "some strange music" that makes you feel this intoxicated…the camera snaps the shot to remember...this one could be a ‘hit’, and ‘Sway’ - a Latin influenced smokey sexy sultry number. Pour your favorite libation, spread the satin sheets, dim the lights and let nature take it’s course.
TOM WAX - MIX TRACKS – PHUTURE WAX…An excellent, driving mix for ya to do that thing you do to! A top selection of hard trance and techno that builds up the feeling just right with a big pounding groove that gets you really moving (‘Way In’ by Gateway Experience). Then you get a bit trancey with Orinoco and Snitzer vs. Humate. it peaks out with Green Velvets ‘Destination Unkinown’, Thomas Schuhmacher vs. Jen Mahlstedts ‘The Boost’ and ‘Fusionic Tubes’ by Wax Trax getting all bangin and horney as it moves into a bit of psycedelic and dream trance territory, ending on a good feeling with Tito Mass ‘Saigon’. A great choice for the hard trance enthusuast…put it on!
LOVE + ROCKETS – RESURRECTION HEX – RED ANT…The LP mix of this one is some acid-whipped break-beaty rock with a song about revolution. There are then 5 re-mixes of this and then a Keoki Malibu Mix of ‘Lift’ (that one is good ‘n trippy with strong beats, a steady mellow deepness and odd voices and sounds). There are 2 Deep dish remixes, and both of them take the cake! The ‘Luv’n’Dub Mix’ has a big, deep and scrapey beat steppin off to a dramatically lush feeling with bloopy looped acid, trippy efx, echoe’d vox and a slight reggae touch, while the ‘Deep Dish Hex Beats’ is psychedelically confused and well tripped up with big, deep beats, strange scrapings…a deep sojurn. KMFDM do the ‘Giganto Mix’ that’s boldly beaty with a late 80’s feel and lots of acid. Mood II Swing do a ‘Dub Mix’ that’s a big steppin affair that’s kinda shakey with a pulsing buzz and deep bass pulses, boom-chakka!
PNEUMERSHONIC – FREQUENCIES OF THE BEAST – TRAY FULL OF LAB MICE…Well, as you can probably surmise from the title, this is a strange one! Strange, and hilarious! This guy, Paul Bourre does the vocals, and as the cd states, they’re mostly improvised…woah, I’ll bet this guy is loads of fun at a party! Oh, how can I describe the delights contained wherin? Well, the first track will give you a clue, ‘Hippy Freakout’ has him ranting with jazz fusion sounds jammin alongside, "smoke that reefer, smoke it strong…have a drink, have another or 2, hey man, I smoke cigarettes, hey, man what’s wrong with you hippys out there in the parking lot, hey, man, you never know…..she was wearing these sunglasses…" This gives you a slight idea. There’s songs about ‘The Beast’, spagetti and meatballs, outer space, and well, all I gotta say is that if you like strange good music and even stranger and funny talkins, then youy gott get some of this…and no, it’s not electronic, but hey, somebody’s gotta give this guy a break!
THE TIMEWRITER – JIGSAW PIECES – PLASTIC CITY…My admiration for The Timewriter has been growing steadily, and now with this full length release, I’m a true believer! A soundtracky piece opens this 15 tracker up, filled with drama and wonder, preparing you for the ride ahead. Then you’re treated to some excellent deep and mellow steppin tech-house filled with emotion. The tracks are excellently programmed and made to evoke feeling. There’s enough groovy feelings and sexy pumpers to hypnotize you, with cool vocal snippets and diva drop-ins sprinkled throughout. It all closes up quite nicely with another lovely sythd piece with deep rolls. Favorite tracks here are – ‘Here Comes The Sun’ , ‘Almost Lost(on a deep train tonight)’, ‘Sunsetwalkin’ and ‘Skywritings’. A lovely thing to have around when yer makin some beautiful music of yer own, well, you know, on the other hand….grab a good friend, a coupla bottles of red wine, and, they’re ya go!
SENSORAMA - LOVE - *2x12* - LADOMAT…This guaranties a good response from many of the ‘Body & Soul’ crowd, the lounge enthusiast, the chill stepper, and the happy camper alike! Another thing that most interesting about this release, is that it kinda sounds different all the time, according to the sound system, the time of day, and even your mood! 11 excellent cuts by Jorn Elling Wuttle & Roman Flugel on an interesting label that’s been around for awhile, and is often associated with some deep, interesting, complex and forward music. This is trippy stuff, housey and deep most of it, with lots of influnces riding along and blended together for something very delicious and savory! Lovely sounds, electro-ish touches, kraftwerkian elements, deep chill beats, pumping rhytms, funky shit, weird and spacey stuff, and lots of interesting patterns of movement and mood are explored and executed quite fine!
16B - Sounds From Another Room - EYE Q…One of these Ooh-er! Rekkids! As in, Ooh this is nice, and Er, a bit sultry as well! It, and it’s artist have garnerned much praise all over the world. Deep lush ‘n lovely chill groovers and some soft ‘n sweet jazzy funkers. My faves are ‘Sounds’, ‘Remote Control’ (funky drums!), and the reason why I decided to spring for the whole package here, the previously released ‘Water Ride. ‘Falling’ is also on here, and it has received the remix treatment, check it!
98.1 & 98.2 - A Moving Shadow Compilation V/A MOVING SHADOW…Yes! Good fun 4 cheap! And I just got another one of these, 98.2! The first CD, mixed by Rob Playford, showcases the current state of the label, and it’s subsidiaries, such as the wonderful Audio Couture. The second one is mixed by Timecode and has a selection of tracks from some upcoming compilations and albums. Rollin fierceness form this selection as solid!
DA MINIMAL FUNK - THE FREE & THE EXCLUSIVE TRACKS *2X12 - RAW ELEMENTS…Well, any compilation that wants to say somethings about house and starts it all out with a full side of Blake Baxter, and gives you a good number of some very fine unreleased tracks is something to check, and this one fit the fil rather nicely! Baxter does, ‘Our Love’ an assertive attitude and some chopped up Diva vox go off to a big steppin bass. Other faves are, Clever & Smart turn in ‘The Employers’, a very deeply funky bass thang with good groovey feelings and some disco flavors combine real well with voices and, yeah, I’ll groove! Jackmate’s ‘Stick Da Phonk’ will really get those hips a’swaying ba-bee with a funky choppy downbeat, male shouts, looped guitars, chill sounds, and an odd comical voice. An Der Beat does ‘Baby 2000’ a funky steppa with a real good attitude, cute vox’s, neat stops and starts, and a very musical with lots of deep, well placed chill elements.
WE ARE REASONABLE PEOPLE - V/A – WARP…Yes that’s right, they sure are, and I’ll tell you why, cause not only is this a great compilation of their top acts turnin in some very interesting and excellent pieces, with the last song, by Mr. Mark Bell, summing it all up in his amazing banger, ‘A Salute To Those People Who Say Fuck You’ doesn’t even have the word ‘Fuck’ in the song…well, not at least that’s totally discernable….and perhaps that’s one of the things Chris Satinger has been noted to say about techno being, "…the most dangerous music…". Dangerous music, this Warp stuff has been since birth for sure! Lots of fun stuff and silly stuff abounds too – check Jimi Tenor with ‘Wear My Bikini’, steppin to the bass ‘n hi hat, pushin ‘n blowin, clickin with class and accented by an odd vocal, and Plone with ‘Plaything’, a sweet, good natured thing that skips along with some feelin fine whistelin’, churchy organs, and trippy manipulated sounds and squirpy acid. Funky, jazzy, and some more experimentally inclined tracks are here to represent the type of up-front, fine, forward/thinking persons type output that label is so famous for. Cute!
