Ten summer tracks

This post is not about Ibiza beach parties and hardstyle DJs rocking the stadiums. Just a random selection that could be taged ‘summer techno/house’ in my view, take it or leave it. Sequential – “Prophet” (Pod Communication) Landmark trance track by Sequential, a project by Pete Namlook and Christian Thier from the beginning of the 1990s. The real bliss starts at 3:50.   Andreas Dorau – “Girls In Love, Grungerman Mix I” (Ladomat 2000) Andreas Dorau, a German NDW and pop wonder, getting his 1997 hit remixed by Wolfgang Voigt.   Ajukaja – “Ahiwo Ahiwo” (Porridge Bullet) After “Benga Benga”, another […]

Inner8 – Inner8 (Undogmatisch UNDLP01 – 2015)

An ambitious new beginning for Dadub’s Daniele Antezza, properly launching the Inner8 alias with a twelve-track opus on the new label Undogmatisch. A Berliner since 2009, Antezza belongs to the city’s ever-growing community of Italian electronic artists and Dadub, his project with Giovanni Conti, has been one of the main pillars of Stroboscopic Artefacts. In my view, the said duo has been standing for deeper, dubbed out sounds with a portion of clicks and cuts and it is not surprising that Antezza’s solo effort keeps distance to the four-to-the-floor action. In the same breath with Inner8, you may mention Edanticonf, Mogano, […]

Church Boy Lou – Weep (Dirt Tech Reck DTR06 – 2015)

As a designer and photographer, Robert O’Bryant aka Waajeed was affiliated with Detroit’s hip hop group Slum Village and then gradually became a producer himself. Waajeed’s first own label was The Bling 47 Group, followed by the launch of Dirt Tech Reck (initially Records) in 2013. Closely connected to the Detroit techno headquarters Submerge, the DTR imprint can look back to a number of releases between street credible beats and soulful house, to present now “Weep” by Church Boy Lou. Waajeed’s new alias seems like an invitation to Sunday morning mess in the neighbourhood. The spiritual opener “Show Me” is […]

Sven Marquardt – Die Nacht ist Leben (Ullstein extra – 2014)

The gatekeeper orders to have patience of over two hundred pages. So long takes it, from the flashback how Frau Erblich, a classy photo model in her seventies, sadly lost her memory and afterwards never appeared in the photo shoots of Sven Marquardt, to the last chapter titled “How To Get Into Berghain”. Yes, thousands have asked the same question from the friends and taxi drivers, browsed the internet forums and eavesdropped the scene insiders for “How To …?”. When no one else than Berlin’s photo artist Sven Marquardt, known as unpredictable and strict Head Bouncer of Berghain, gives an account of his life so far, the expectations of […]

Acronym – June (Northern Electronics NE21 – 2015)

In the areas closer to the Arctic Circle, the month of June is full of suggestive stories – after wintery darkness being defeated, breath-taking white nights proclaim the Summer Solstice. When the nature is in full blossom, even rain and winds do not spoil the magic. Therefore June is something to cherish and Acronym is exactly doing that, with the help of sound-emitting machines. For Acronym, “June” is the fourth release on Northern Electronics. Initially seen as Abdulla Rashim’s experimental side activity, the label has become an established outlet with a strong roster on Nordic artists. Sound wise it is located in the crossroads of tripping pagan rites for […]

Never On Sunday – Day-By-Day (430 West ‎4W-165 – 2015)

The Burden brothers and 430 West are inseparable from the evolution of Detroit electronic music. This spring, they reanimated the main project Octave One with the group’s fifth album “Burn It Down” and have reissued a couple of classic EPs, including Never On Sunday’s “Day-By-Day”. Never On Sunday (aka N.O.S.), a short-lived side project of Lenny, Lawrence and Lynell Burden, may not ring a bell for many because of only two EPs in the beginning of the 1990s. Apart from that, some individual tracks were released on compilations, like futuristic tech dreamer “Urban Rains” on 430 West’s excellent “Detroit Techno City”. This particular […]
