Be jammed


Jori Hulkkonen - Crowd, get ready to be jammed [Turbo, 2007] (d/l)
Favorite Finn Hulkonnen, also one part of the Discemi duo. Here with an all new EP called "Rave 2.0" as his alias The Fenno Baron. Smashing as it should be. I'm feeling this, reminds me of some Tomas Andersson productions in a way. Head on, no fuss, dance music.

Edit: Good news about 2008: Autechre is releasing a new album on the third of march called Quaristice. What strikes me is the number of tracks though, twenty songs crammed into an album when usually they go with about ten. Interesting!

Merry christmas times two


Santa bringing you more stuff.

Breakage - Shroud [Digital Soundboy, 2007] (d/l)
Excellent, moody yet brutal dubsteppish d&b sounds.

Claro Intelecto - Dependent [Modern love, 2007] (d/l)
Limited (300 copies!) piece of aural bliss.

T++ - Allied [N/A, 2007] (d/l)
Dubby techno vibes with an experimental touch. Heavy and super good.

Cocotte disco effect


Three tunes. Two hard as can be, proper techno bits (no minimal here), while the last one caters more to the justice-audience (not that they're totally mutually exclusive) if you know what I mean. Merry christmas to all our readers.

Robert Hood - Side effect [Music man, 2007] (d/l)
Fucking vicious.

Ortin cam - Panic at the disco [Drumcode, 2007] (d/l)

Teenage bad girl - Cocotte [Citizen, 2007] (d/l)
French duo cranking out hits much in the tired Ed banger style.

Harmonautic String



I'm really enjoying this track theres alot going on but it all fits in to place so well.
It floats majestically like a kite caught up in the wind.
Full of techy layers & wonderful melodies, so many i cant keep up.
It peaks at the 4 min mark with a vortex like swirling motion, not for long though it gives way for the ghostly strings and the ping ponging keys, then it comes back in again.

Blossom on the flip is more new wave trance its good but the stand out track is definitely Harmonautic String.

Check it out!

BTW that is Uffie in the pic ...oh my days! ;-)

Tumble Blur



Tumble Blur sits somewhere between deep and tech house.
Its full of deep tech sounds which have balanced out beautifully with deep & techy chords its dark, sexy and groovy.
The Gospelic like calls are bound to have ears twitching as if there calling you to the dance floor.
Its a real solid groove that's bound to have the floor where it wants them.
Expect this to cross over to deeper floors aswell as more minimal orientated ones.
Adult only are celebrating there 30th release with this ep and what a way to do it.
All three tracks deserve your attention.

Break change


Bike for three - All there is to know about love [N/A, ?] (d/l)
Collaboration between Buck 65 and Greetings from Tuskan. Watch out for the upcoming More heart than brains album. The production on this tune is just stunning, couple that with Buck's rugged voice and fine lyrics and we have ourself a winner. Much recommended.

Aphex Twin - Vordhosbn [Warp, 2001]
Almost seven years ago this dropped. Felt like only yesterday. Top track.

Hit up Oh My Gosh for the latest Chris Liebing track - Bangpop. Heavy hitter!

Violet


Steve Lawler 'Violet' - (October's Caravan mix) - [Promo]

October's mix is the standout on this EP, all though saying that the other three including the original are also very good.
His mix is in between techno and Dub or as he likes to call it "Organic techno"
We cant disagree either there is something very home grown about this piece.
Nothing artificial here,
He gets straight down to business, It opens up with a beautiful deep and dubby melody from the keys of the piano /Organ.
Twisting and turning throughout expect the unexpected its a good ride to be on and it never loses focus.

Its really good!
It should be out soon along with a remix from Bushwacka! & Livio and Roby black.

All in all theres something for everyone.

The best of the rest


We cant simply keep up with all the releases here at RC it would be impossible.
Some times we might write a draft out and then totally forget about it.

Until now that is, with 2007 nearly at an end we have some music that we didn't have time to post.
Its both old and new if you class 6 months as old and less than a month as new.
Call it a catch up, its mainy of the Dubstep variety / experimental / techno.
Some dark beats for these cold & dark nights.

Another reason is i need more room in my folder but I'm a hoarder and i cant bring myself to delete music so i would rather see it go to a good home than be sent to the big recycle bin in the sky...

Don't sleep on these tracks.

Sceada Mantikor


Bukaddor & Fishbeck - Mantikor [Traum, 2008] (d/l)
Cologne based duo Baggy Bukaddor and Tim Fishbeck has had quite a productive year with three twelves on My Best Friend and here's their fourth, now on Traum. This twelver with the two tracks Sceada and Mantikor will not be released officially until the 7th of january 2008. No doubt a good kickstart for the next year. Sceada is a real beauty, consisting of thought out and varied melodies, with catchy basslines and proper percussion, this one will surely be enjoyed by many. The b-side is Mantikor. A Manticore has the body of a lion, a human head with three rows of teeth and either a dragon's or scorpion's tail. Scary. Well this track lets the listener onboard a ship for 10 minutes of trippy riding through the minds of Bukaddor and Fishbeck with the mythic creature as the only other passenger. Like a high pressure tempest, it's lethally dangerous. A tough call choosing a song here, but I'm going with Mantikor for its slightly more straight forward ways. Buy when it is available!

Star Wars singers - R2d2 we wish you a merry christmas
As a bonus, here's a brilliant and quite humorous christmas song. Enjoy :)

Ice cream


I saw the final cut of Blade Runner yesterday. Damn I love that film. "The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long - and you have burned so very, very brightly, Roy."


Muscles - Ice cream [Modular, 2007] (d/l)
I like ice cream, and I know a lot of people who do so. If a song is named after the delicious dessert then it better be good, right? Well this one is. Catchy indie pop, rnb, electronica blenders the Muscles' album is called "Guns babes lemonade". A braindead title fitting for their funloving, party starting and lollipop cheeky music. Throw this on for smiles and giggles. Ice cream is going to save the day.

Added good friends and sweden's finest R&B bloggers, Wifebeaterlove, to our link list. Much love!

My Deep Space



2007 has undoubtedly been the year of the deep house revival.
With everyone opting for piano's and deep dubby cuts.
Two of 2007 biggest new house names go at it in this deep and dubbed out space mix

Its a bit like Len Faki's sound as if he had been smoking weed its alot more chilled but still very powerful.

Weisemann's remix is sparse dark and dubby but at the same time he allows space for some light to shine through.
It opens up so well deep clicks and a deep duubed out lunar piano is the main focus with murmurs of vocals coming through every so often.
Its a really nice piece and is limited to a 500 only vinyl press so be quick on this one.

At Home Im a Tourist



One of the last great records of 2007, this went down a storm at the after party on friday night.

Bruno Pronsato delivers such a wonderful piece in this limited 1 sided piece of plastic.

At Home I'm a Tourist is a delve into electronic music at its very best it takes in techno and classical and welds them together, its a fantastic journey of just under 10 mins taking in plucked strings violent hand claps, deep percussion reverberating synth lines and a deep work out from the brass family.
It just keeps getting better and better this is without doubt one of the tracks of the year.

What a way to sign off on 2007 i don't think there is going to be any more stand out records this year.
So stand up and raise a glass to a brilliant year of electronic music.

2007 we salute you may 2008 be even better.

Closed eyes


Chordian - Closed eyes (Paul Kalkbrenner remix) [SONICULTURE, 2007] (d/l)

Kinder puppets



Que pasa maria has been in the boxes of many dj's over the past few month and on a first listen you can see why its a old skool meets tech house with some cool tribal vocal work.

Its made for the dancefloor Radio Slave, Marcel Dettmann & the other usual suspects have charted it of late.



Puppets is a quirky deep tech track that loves to give its taken from jona's new ep, it comes with a Dan Curtin remix and a ok A side.

Worth having a look for.

Mango


Sascha Funke -'Mango' - [Promo/ BPitch Control]

Were not even into 2008 and already a album has come to light that will be on peoples best of list at the end of 2008.

Mango is Sascha Funke's new long player which is on promo now but will be dropping in February on the ever excellent BPitch Control .
Its 9 tracks of outstanding forward thinking deep house music.

Mango which we have here is just the tip of the iceberg
Awesome release
Be on the lookout for this
Tip!

Drums of spring



Another label that has been outstanding this year is Diynamic Music
What a great way to Finnish 2007 with a four track ep by some of 2007's freshest new talent.

H.O.S.H who goes all out on a deep tribal excursion complete with an African chant with 'Drums Of Spring'.
Gruber* & Nürnberg - 'Floating cloud in summer' is expertly crafted fresh and forward thinking house music.
Stimming* '1000 Words In Autumn' goes for the sticks and stones approach and pulls it off excellently
Last but not least is Solomun with 'Second Kiss In Winter' which calms things down with a beautifully crafted light but deep finish to 2007.
I could of quite easily posted all four tracks they all stand out and are fabulous.
Go check the EP - TIP!!!
Diynamic Music are going to be even bigger in 08 a label to watch very closely.

Download
I just realised were not allowed to post from this label.

Fish in water


Masaya - Little Brothers E.P. -(Like a fish in water original) - [Meerestief Limited]

Masaya has quickly made a name for herself with her big summer ep El Choquero EP .
Which was released on one of the labels of the year Perspectiv. And can boast quality remixes from Agnès & Sam K.
Then there was her remix of Lucy - 'Glass Computer' Which i thought was arguably the best apart from the original itself.

Her latest is a solid 3 track ep on Meerestief Limited which includes a nice remix from Nhar

Like A Fish In Water is what it must be like to be submerged 1000's of feet below sea level it rolls along deep but calmly its very aquatic.
Don't underestimate the power of this track it could be used as a tool as well.
You get that feeling that you could be in a submarine with no pressure floating past huge corals.

Nhar goes even deeper but adds a vocal and a few strange popping noises.

The other track is MS.Darcy which is totally the opposite to both track and remix still aquatic, alot more calmer its more floating down the river than lost in the Pacific.

All in all a great EP.

labyrinth



Labyrinth starts as it means to continue with a dark springing motion underneath a thick shuffly background.
Building up into your worst acid nightmare.
Deep drops of Acid leak from this track making holes in your head.
John Tejada shows us once again why he is respected by so many.
B side 'The Tyranny Of Choice' is just as good with more acid, this time old skool meets a cool melody.
Top release!

Cocoon



We like Moonbeam here at RC
This latest one from our favourite Russian's is a trip on to another planet
The melody takes hold of you and swings you round and round.
Background noises sound like something from another planet.
Its a really nice release and it has another two remixes on the ep a 'sunset mix' and the original. Its the 'Moon mix' which i prefer.
Quality stuff.

Moncton

Alex Bau - Summer in Moncton [CLR, 2007] (d/l)

This is from the C.A.N.A.D.A E.P, released on Chris Liebing Recordings. Is that geiger counter unstable, defect or is a reactor meltdown abound? As it turns out this electrical piece of devious, hard-drum infused techno causes meltdowns of listeners' brains. As can be heard when the alarm goes off around 3:30. Be cautious and suit up, then you might survive this corrupting beast of mass destruction. Or be reckless and end up like the kid in the picture.

Bad hands

Surgeon - Bad hands (Monolake remix) [Dynamic tension, 2007] (d/l)

Two of my favorite releases this year has been both parts of the twelves "Whose Bad Hands Are These?". Rough, noisy, tough shit. Of course it helps having awesome remixers like Autechre, and here Monolake on the decks. By the way, check the tracklisting for Surgeon's mixtape This Is For You Shits - MASSIVE.

Scenario Revisited



Check out this latest EP by Marcel Dettmann & Ben Klock on Ostgut Tonträger which is the record label of Berlin's Berghain club.

Its really good proper late night dubby techno highlights are Scenario, Places like this & Renumber.

Theres also a really good, extended & DJ friendly version of last years big underground hit and one of my personal faves of the whole year.
Dawning Which has had a slight makeover, it has a real Radio Slave vibe about it.
Its a dark builder and the outcome is great.
Go check out this release if you like it fresh Dubby and dark.
You wont be disappointed!

Ok. Brief weekend pause for RC. I'm afraid I'll have to suspend my blogging activities a bit further though. Madness has ensued once again for the upcoming end of this term. Exams and laborations + work will keep me more busy than I'd like.

Weekend


Ive been looking forward to tonight for a while now.
One of my favourite producers Guido Schneider is playing tonight in Leeds at the Dirty Disco if his new promo release Albertino And Nora P on Cadenza is anything to go by im in for a treat all his back catalogue is super stuff aswell.
The two Berliners Format: B will be playing there blend of tech house and all things dark and minimal.
And of course i cant forget the residents.
Last but not least is a regular face behind the decks Geddes who will be plugging his new ep Trial & Error which is really good and comes complete with a H.O.S.H remix.
Heres a quality remix from Guido.
Its just so deep! this was made for those late nights on a Funktion One .
Have a good one !

You and me


Mark Broom - You and me [Toys for boys, 2007] (d/l)
Booming mtechno produced by Broom. You and me has a slight villainous touch stemming from the quixotic layout of the track. Sierra Sam takes care of the remix duties on the flip. Also be sure to pick up Broom's New life EP on Minimise, strong stuff.

Music is improper



Lets start things of as we mean to carry on.
Friendly people is an alias of Alex Under.
Good start!
Even more good news is that he has decided to send for the cavalry on his remix of improper bringing in Damian Schwartz, Martin Buttrich.
Also Tadeo gives his take on things which you can find on a separate white label.

Buttrich shows off his other persona, by going all deep hypnotic and minimal.
He uses Alex's signature beats in a swirling motion adding layers of melodies and a growling sub bass on top of the vocals.
The track progresses really well, by building and getting more loopy and melodic.

Hugg & Pepp - Pung [Dahlbäck, 2007] (d/l)

Jesper and John Dahlbäck never cease their production flurry. Pung is from their latest cooperation "Pappa EP" on their very own imprint. It is high quality, bite sized, surefire mover goods in the form of funky tech house. Trivia: Pung is swedish for scrotum.

Rugby



Mathias Kaden's remix of 'Rugby' is probably one of my favorite remixes this year.
It starts off as it means to continue hitting you with a slow tribal conga.
The drums play such an important part in this remix as they do in alot of kadens other releases
This is no run of the mill remix though it has everything it builds effortlessly,
with such style & charisma. You don't know what to expect as a smooth saxophone lick comes in only to be brought back out again, then brought back in again on top of the drums. Its almost as if there's a sacrifice about to happen and this is the calm before the storm.

Excellent release don't hesitate in buying this.

Taken down by request.

The Shining



Time for some house! Its that Deep house in between Minimal sound that's been big over the summer.

This is one of the best coming out of Holland.
Its deep and dark with cool atmospherics and excellent production work.
But fear not those of you not keen on minimal this never sways to just the one side of either minimal or house it keeps tiltering but never falls of balance.
It builds with excellent percussion and deep ambient vocals which get more intense as the song continues.
Its been remixed by Rejected and there input is crucial as the remix is the one that makes the package.
The original is alot more tribal than deep house.
Personally its the Rejected mix that stands out the most for me and may i add both the original and the remix have been mastered by 2000 And One* so you know what to expect, no sloppy production or slack timing.
This is top class house music not to be passed by.

Erratic static mix


Another mix of mine. About 40 minutes of genre crashing, this one is all over the place. New tracks, old ones, chill styles, dancefloor tunes, upbeat shit, mainstream sugar flirts, wonky experimentalism - all of it fighting for your attention. The inspiration came from P3 Dans (a national radio show) which always manages to blend some of the most awkward things together perfectly. I'm quite happy with this one, so please have a go and listen.

Tracklist:
  1. MF Doom - Spidey senses
  2. Run_return - Wake up sex
  3. Apparat - Komponent (Telefon tel aviv remix)
  4. Hyde vs Exzakt - I am the enemy
  5. Simian Mobile Disco - Sleep deprivation

  10. Luca Agnelli - Pianotron
  11. Analord - I'm self employed

Green sunday


Jichael Mackson - The Grass Is Always Greener (Co-Produced With Jacob Sharzi) [Musique Risquée, 2007] (d/l)
Absolutely gorgeous dub-techno from Mackson and Sharzi. It's evolving, psychadelic and stunning soundscapes with chilled beats. Everything changes as the song springs into full bloom. From the EP Wasn't me. A perfect musical slice for your sunday.

Rush hour


Population one - Rush hour (convextion remix) [Rush hour, 2007] (d/l)
Crazy deep submarine dub-techno. 100% mood. Just drift away deep below.

Went to Styrbord Babord to see Moodyman yesterday. Was a bit disappointed actually.

Traffic circle



This is without doubt my favourite release on Upon.You A label set up by Marco Resmann aka Phage and also a part time member of Pan-Pot.

Traffic circle is so stylish and cool its definitely what I'm feeling at the moment its dark but house orientated at the same time its that late night /early morning after party sound.
It starts of with a haunting cry of a woman and her baby in comes the thud of the zig zagging drums as it starts to slowly build.
The background noises stay ambient but iree.
In comes the piano building and building, more atmospherics in the background give it a haunting stripped back feeling.
The keys from the piano eventually get so violent that they explode bringing you crashing back down to the earth only to start all over again.
This is going to destroy clubs on a large system the outcome will be fantastic, drop this in your set and its going to get a good reaction.

Magic valley


Pig & Dan - Magic Valley [Sonic society, 2007] (d/l)
After their recent long player on Cocoon, Pig and Dan (= Igor Tchkotoua together with Dan Duncan) is back with a new twelve. Magic Valley is a deep, poignant mover, with its share of bizarreness (horse neigh, what the hell?). Together with the steady beat there is a hypnotic melody loop overlayed. The result is a bit creepy.

Have a good friday and weekend.

Dancing Graffiti



Heres a nice up coming release from BPitch Control courtsey of Kiki.
Dancing Graffiti is a Über Chic deep funky drum track that is very catchy.
It kicks things off big with lots of "oblong bass" bringing a continuous ear piercing ringing sound in which sounds like someone ringing a bell, He then drops lots of spaced out bleeps into the mix as the ringing gets more hypnotic and the drums continue to embed themselves in your head.
it Carry's on like this repeating itself.
Its a cool track to drop and wouldn't sound out of place on REKIDS or even Poker Flat Recordings.On the flip is a remix by Berlin duo Zander VT.

Download

Heres a bit of a bonus and something to look forward to the new Schneider* , Galluzzi* , Schirmacher* - Albertino And Nora P on Cadenza.We have a cool 5 min set rip of 'Albertino' its a collaboration between Guido Schneider and André Galluzzi and it is quality! Sexy late night house music the ep will be out mid December on Cadenza.

Zugunruhe Part 2

Ripperton - 'Zugunruhe' - (Daniel Stefanik remix) - [N/A]

The original mix of this track http://randts.blogspot.com/2007/06/zugunruhe-tides.html was released back in June on the mixed Various - Grand Cru 2007 on Connaisseur Recordings.
Which i liked alot but this remix which we have here takes things two steps further...
OK i lie its more like two steps and a massive jump.
Its had a fabulous reworking by Daniel Stefanik who you may know from his releases on Moon Harbour Recordings and other well known labels.
He takes the mix on a long (11 min) drawn out journey its very sticks and stones at the start think Cadenza .It gradually builds coming together beautifully & climaxing with a soft luscious piano riff you almost float away whilst listening to the birds on some tropical paradise far far away.
Its on promo now but i reckon it will be coming out in the not so distant future.

Map to loving dominik


Dominik Eulberg - Rattenscharf [Cocoon, 2007] (d/l)
Herr Eulberg with a fresh long player filled with mostly new tracks, finally more biology/park-ranger techno! 'Bionik' is oftentimes a bit quirky, quickly followed by the most serene and beautiful melodic sequences. Awkward drum patterns with sprinkled glitchesque sound effects in a contrived and confined space gets lifted up by the celestial, organic tones coming from the nearest plants. Rewarding to listen to. And while I've now heard the album back to back for 10+ times, I am still not certain about my verdict on this one. Tricksy, Eulberg, tricksy.

Maps - To The Sky (The Loving Hand Remix) [Mute, 2007] (d/l)
Remix treatment from the oh so loving hand. The outcome is, naturally, like tiny crazy delicious cookies for your ears. Buy the cookie, listen to the cookie and then finally become the cookie.


By the way, check out Donnacha Costello - Orange A, posted up on Music for robots. Nice one.

Minimal Monday


Tom Dazing -'She Must Come Soon' -[Heimatmelodie]

Some minimal to start the week off.

'She must come soon' is a track that's been getting a steady amount of interest over the summer by the likes of Richie Hawtin, Magda & Troy Pierce. It started off as an unsigned track but now its been released on Heimatmelodie.
Tom Dazing builds the track using bleepy riffs, cool percussion, driving sub bass and a good build.
Worth checking out.

Next up is another track Lucio Aquilina - Magic M that's been big all summer and now has finally been released on Cocoon Recordings.Well at least the original has we have a unreleased Massi DL version. Who gives it a short sharp face lift by extending it and making the melody more floaty and light.

Spastik



A quick Sunday lunch post to relive the boredom of waiting for my dinner.
How good is this for a reworking basically Dubfire just gives the classic a new lick of paint by bringing it up to date, not alot to say on this one apart from its essential.On the flip is another excellent rework of 'Panikattack' by Guido Schneider under a (Second Attack Remix) guise.
Plastikman - Nostalgik.3 is another great reworking package go look up the other two in the series.
