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.


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 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.

A big sorry to everyone who mailed us

Yes, as the titles says: A very big "sorry" to everyone who has contacted us via our e-mail (! I forgot the password to that account and was unable to check it for quite some time. I've regained the password now though, so I will be going through all your precious mails and hopefully post some really nice unsigned stuff and mixes.

Apologize for any incovnenience this may have caused. We're not just arrogantly ignoring you guys. Honestly :-)

Have a nice monday all.

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.


Lucio Aquilina - Magic M -(Massi DL Version) - [Unreleased]
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.

Sunday, November 25, 2007


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.

Olga Dancekowski

Matt John - 'Olga Dancekowski' (Audion's Paradise Cafe Mix) -[BAR25]

Matt John is one of the most unique producers around take his releases on Perlon even in 2005 before "minimal" was cool he was knocking out a soundtrack of next level bleepy sounds.

So those of you who know his sound will be pleased that this is just as unique and mind bending, well the remix is. Its by one of my favourite producers ever Audion I think in a clash it would be between him and Radioslave. Anyway its Audion who does the business on this 'Olga Dancekowski' Expect peak time twisted deep techno a real psychedelic journey through everything bleepy and wrong.
Exceptional remix from Audion who has been very busy of late under his Matthew Dear guise bringing us the psychedelic sounds of his album Asa Breed.

Then under his Audion guise remixing everyone from Blackstrobe to Claude VonStroke.

His latest is a remix of the new
Dubfire 'I feel speed' which is floating around at the moment and i must say its really really good.
I'm already looking forward to his next releases / remixes Audion a force to be reckoned with.
Check out his entire back catalogue i cant find a blotch in this landscape of music! Listen to Dubfire - 'I feel speed' - (Audion remix)


Friday extravaganza post Just For You[tm]!

Luca Agnelli - Booster remix [My best friend, 2007] (d/l)
Harmonic wind pipes stabs at you while building what is yet to come. You dash towards the warm, devious bass only to find out about its severe treason. A knife in the back! Better start running. Adventurous minimal techno served by Mr Agnelli on My Best Friend. Original floor-busting steez you can't stop, even if you wanted to. It is all compassing, engulfing every last bit of matter.

Justus Köhncke - Feuerland [Kompakt, 2007] (d/l)
Interesting fact about this track, copy&pasted straight from discogs: '"Feuerland" is written by Harmonia- and Neu!- and former Kraftwerk-member Michael Rother and originally released on his 1977 LP "Flammende Herzen".' A real epic moody piece this one. Play while traveling, waiting, working or studying and listen in awe as the track unfolds itself.

Weekend digest for GBG: We got Rub N Tug + DJ KAOS crashing the boat Styrbord Babord friday night. On saturday club Atlantis@Röda Sten offers techno, electro, acid and minimal from Schuldts. At the same time Dimitrios & Jor-el continues with their Kraft crusade at Storan. Hit up Min bror och jag for your electro dosage with Midnight express djs Eargoggle & Technicolor.

Barren space

Ada - Barren space [Areal, 2007] (d/l)
B-side of the Fizzman release. Areal being busy. Opinions?

Tons and tons of school work, crazy as hell at my job = a plethora of things I have to  prioritise over RC sadly.

Back Track Tuesday

Tim Wright -'Thirst' (Luciano's Dancehall Remix) -[NovaMute]

Its that time again where we open the vaults here at RC to look back on some forgotten classics or lesser known tracks that you may have missed.
This week were focusing on Cadenza's head honcho and DJ extraordinaire Luciano.
Starting off with a track by Tim Wright titled 'Thirst' (Luciano Dancehall Remix) i know what you must all be thinking. "Dancehall" ??? have we gone mad! But fear not as this isn't your regular dancehall track you wont find any Rastafarian's grinding to this in your local dancehall. This is a deep trippy minimal meets house, slow vocal groover.That still sounds as fresh as it did back in 2004. Luciano's remix and Juice Aleem's vocals work really well together.

Vegetable Orchestra - 'Ciboulette' (Luciano Mix) -[Karmarouge]
Next is a somewhat of a sort after minimal classic everyone from Richie Hawtin to Carl Craig has championed this.Its by the Vegetable Orchestra - 'Ciboulette' (Luciano Remix) What makes this so special is the Orchestra consists of ten musicians, one cook and one sound technician. They use musical instruments made out of vegetables! Some are ready made, like the tomato. Some are altered and assembled especially, like their infamous carrot recorder.It sounds mad i know but how far above there time where they! This is a record every Electronic music fan should own.

Massi DL -'Acidland' - [N/A]

Time for some more skewed minimal from the Italian who's the front man at the moment on all things wrong and wonky Massi DL.
Taken from his upcoming ep Massi DL - Wonderland which will be dropping in mid December on Trapez.Yes thats right once again the German minimal label doesn't fail to deliver.

Acidland is like diving into a scene from who framed Roger Rabbit you get the feeling that these strange sounds could of been lifted straight of a cartoon. Wonky horns and bubbling sounds try to warp the brain, incomes the Acid build that springs into action making everything explode and go crazy.
Wonderfull and wonky.


Luna is like a trip on to a dance floor that has no gravity you instantly float away into the track.

Its built full of lush melodies that leave you in a state of trance, dreamy and so pleasing on the ear.So sit back and get lost in the moment.
Luna being the Latin meaning for Moon, and you totally get the feeling that you could be on the moon.
Ellen Allien's BPitch Control with yet another remarkable release

Is it real or is it just a dream .......

Fancy you

The results are in, the poll is closed. An even 200202 people voted, very impressive! Thanks for letting us know your opinion.

Avus - Fancy Arse (James Holdens Sunday Night Extension) [Perc trax, 2007] (d/l)
Just a (not so) lil something I have missed. Lovely split from waaay back in april (gasp!) with some recognizable names. Here Avus and James Holden, on the flip Perc meets Nathan Fake... And there was a FIRE FIGHT!

Sennh - I am with you [Traum, 2007] (d/l)
Perfectly balanced, melodic rhythms. Like trainride imagery, flickering past your retina while you're drifting away, day dreaming of things that could have been. Sennh makes his/her(?) debut on Traum and it fits right in with the rest of the family. "I am with you" has a mature sound and is a full fledged techno-bird ready to take off any second, always on the move. Catch it while you can ;-)

I'm off for the weekend once again. Hit those clubs people!

White Elephant

Lets go deep now on RC.
This latest one from H.O.S.H. is just that, Deep exciting house music I'm a sucker for anything with trumpets or horns, in fact anything relating to the brass family.
When i first heard this i was slightly taken a back as i wasn't expecting this at all its nothing like his release on Diynamic Music. Which was good dont get me wrong, but this is next level he uses a deep throbbing bassline, Horns & trumpets which jump out at you a bit like
Sebbo's Beirut boogie.
Classical meets deep house music & once again the outcome is fantastic. He uses the horns and trumpets really well wrapping them tightly round the deep house beat to give that feel as if the elephant was raising its trunk in a sort of "Im here to stay" fashion, as it marches along. It keeps at a nice steady pace adding deep keys and continuing with the impending sounds of the horns and trumpets. Its the sort of track that wouldn't be out of place on a film or on classical FM.
On the flip is H.O.S.H. With Adriano (3) -'Don Alfredo'
This track's a total different ball game.It has alot of layer's which keep repeating themself. There's alot going on in this track but it works as its slow and stripped back, the drowsy horns and trumpets keep coming in making a slight appearance then disappearing again in keeping with the riff from the piano & just before the whirling of the vortex, then it starts all over again. Its by no means peak time but its a fantastic release.
Overall view on this fabulous double sider is what house music should be about. Exciting fresh and forward thinking.

*The track is White elephant i just mixed up the titles when uploading it*


Basteroid - 16 steps away from the stars [Areal, 2007] (d/l)

Off of Basteroid's first full length album "Upsets ducks". I've liked Basteroid ever since I first heard him, always quirky but with rugged and hard sides to his music. Interesting shit that oftentimes will set you in the right groove mode. Upsets Ducks is a great collection of songs and showcases the basteroid style in full force. Don't miss on this.

Gui Boratto - Matryoshka [Kompakt Extra, 2007] (d/l)
Speicher55: Gui Boratto / SCSI-9. I like. A lot. No further comments.

Popof -'Alcoolic' -(Paul Woolford aa Remix) - [CDR]

There's no getting away from it this has been a sure fire underground summer hit.

Luciano has been caning it along with a whole heap of DC1O Residents. So it was only a matter of time before a big label C2 Records (UK) picked it up and hooked us up with a decent remix package.

This remix package is like a who's who of producers to watch, on the Cdr you get the brilliant Original then there's a remix from head honcho at Nottinghams Leftroom label Matt Tolfrey who has teamed up with uber minimalist Inxec. There take on things is a total rework adding a sort of minimal tribal vibe to it that will appeal to the masses, its a builder which explodes with tribal shouting and the original riff it comes in at just under 9 mins which is very DJ friendly.

Last but certainly not least is Basics resident Paul Woolford who basically beefs it up for more of a club vibe it starts off as if your in a frying pan thats about to explode sizzling its arse off then eventually it does explode bringing the all important riff slamming in. Its more Acid house than minimal,which appeals to me the most my only quarm is it could of been a tad longer.

Minimal Schminimal

I have a sort of love hate relationship with the dreaded genre. Ive never really been into the cold clicky side of it, However i do prefer music that's been stripped down so you can hear all the elements all going off and intertwining with one another.

Perhaps that's why i hate trance? It all sounds the same and is just too boring i was never into the whole progressive era as well that never took my fancy.

I was more on an old skool tip lots of piano's hence my love for a piano tune to this day.

Alot of minimal can fall flat on its face but this next one is totally the opposite its deep it has melody & structure, & it has a dark tint to it in a sort of light way its by a Polish producer Slg and its on one of our favorite labels here at RC Trapez.

Earthworm Is everything minimal should be about its fast paced deep, bleepy & trippy and has been laced in acid funk its not a one off either as the flip 'Ssswing' is just as good if not better, & both have a distinct likeness to Stimming's Funkworm EP.

This is what it should be about.

Four minimal heads doing it for me right now are Adultnapper, Jon Gaiser, Heartthrob and of course Slg.

My partner in crime points out minimal smashed everything out of its way on our pole in a landslide victory, With this being the case hopefully we will be able to bring you some different fresh sounding minimal music to RC. Anyway enough with the 'M word how many times did i use it ....

Cookin' it

Pornbugs - Hot pan [Bondage, 2007] (d/l)

Pornbugs is aka I.D.O.G & Crypton which doesn't tell me much. What I do know is that they have released a violent collection of four tracks called "Cook it" on Bondage music. All 4 songs are massive. This is ear candy of galactic proportions. Big, bleepy music for big nights. Need fat speakers and monster system, so I can listen to this properly already!

Slave To The Vibe

The master of the remix is once again gracing our blog. He really mustn't get much sleep hence the "no sleep" project. Bringing out remix after remix running a label REKIDS and finding time to go on tour! But somehow he manages to find the time.
Not only does he find time to do all this, but he finds the time to make consistently excellent records and remixes as he goes, never failing or disappointing. His latest is a remix from Scottish duo Slam who are also co founders of the ever excellent Soma Quality Recordings.
Mr Edwards has taken the smash hit from earlier this year Azure and stripped it right down using the bare minimal. Basically its a driving tambourine and the most luscious string arrangement your going to hear this year, Whilst all this is making your ear buds dance about with delight, there's a sort of calm but eerie whistling in the background adding that extra bit of sparkle.
Its really good maybe suited more for the big room floors? Only time will tell, one thing is for certain you will be hearing this alot more in the coming months.

On the flip is a Samuel L Sessions remix which is a little shorter than the one mentioned above.Which is to be expected as Matt doesn't usually do a remix less than 10 Min's long!
SLS keeps alot more of the original and alot more of the piano, its a bit more Techno / Electro than stripped down and minimal.

Its a great remix package its out in December on Soma Quality Recordings so go out and buy it! Essential!

Remind me

Dole & Kom - Remind me [Death by disco, 2007] (d/l)

Top duo Tilo Ciesla & Jens Brachvogel is back on their own personal label - Death By Disco - with four tracks signed with the official D&K stamp. We're talking melodic, moving, dancefloor as well as ipod friendly tech house of course. It's so nice with artists that you can truly trust for quality and gorgeous output each and every single time.

With only 3 days left on the poll, I am hearing the crowd. And the crowd wants minimal techno! What a landslide, expected of course, but still.

Dubfire - Emissions [M_NUS, 2007] (d/l)

M_NUS is at it again, new compilation "Expansion | Contraction" got me all giddy. Especially with this, the first track, which comes from the Dubfire man. It's hard hitting, super dense minimal bullets fired at you from point blank range. "Pressure | Release" would describe Emissions in Minus words. Well, Dubfire is indeed on fire. The other contributions on the comp comes from Hawtin himself under the Plastikman guise, Marc Houle, Gaiser, JPLS and Heartthrob.

Hope everyone had a good weekend, mine was extremely uneventful.

Coffee tech session

Time for a pure techno post from me, was a while ago. Hope this will satisfy the never ending techno hunger.

Markus Enochson - Red coffee (redshape sweat mix) [Imprimé, 2007] (d/l)
A heavy kick coupled with some claps.. a simple introduction for this power-track. It keeps on building and eventually reaches a stomping equilibrium that just feels so good. Some synths enter the picture around the middle and it is awesome. Alex Kid's new label Imprimé is off to a very good start!

Parallel 9 - Technic [a.r.t.less, 2007] (d/l)
Classic techno sound all over! Radical mover from Parallel 9 = Steve Rachmad. Frantic and ferocious friday favourite.

Here's what's up in Gothenburg, quite a poor wekend:
  • Angry gross-death-and-filth-rapper and producer Necro @ Sticky Fingers (fri)
  • Elof, Nibc, Cazuma DJs house @ The Eye (fri)
  • Anders Ilar & NOS live @ Effektverket (sat)

We love Techno Weekend

Another big weekend in the world of electronic music with I love Techno in Ghent. Cocoon Recordings in Manchester and Jeff Mills in Leeds and all the rest here's a classic & Essential!Techno cut from 1995.
System 7 remixed by Plastikman Enjoy the weekend!

Enjoy the moments

Shinedoe - 'Enjoy The Moments' (RippertonRmx) - [100% Pure]

Starting off with a creepy insect noise as if its walking over a piece of paper and the sound has been amplified 100x. In comes the bass its a thumping drum that's consistent, at least until when the strings come in then it fades into the background as the track starts to come together. Hand claps and a lovely melody slowly glide in as it opens up like a butterfly in the summer, back in comes the drum and makes way for what sounds like a steam engine about to leave the station. The riff boomerangs back and forth giving a sort of elastic springy effect, eventually it starts springing uncontrollably in a coiling sort of fashion, only calming down to a slow finish as the track has come to the end. Once again Ripperton shows us why he is at the top of the tree don't let this one pass you by as its a limited edition on white.

TRAGEDY @ CARL COX gig Red Noise, Venezuela !
Four people were shot dead at a Carl Cox concert on Saturday in Venezuela after a gunman starting shooting in the crowd.
There are reports on the web that nine people were also injured, and grisly footage of the aftermath was posted on YouTube by the VJ who was playing at the gig at La Rinconada Terrace in Caracas, Venezuela.
On a VJ Forum, VJ Rei from Venezuela described the attack and said he saw three dead bodies on the dancefloor:
“Last night, 15 meters from me when Carl Cox started his show and 10 minutes into it someone started to shoot everyone. It sounded like firecrackers, it was so fast I didn’t think it was a gun.
“Everybody started to run like crazy.
“I was in the main booth, doing my visuals and filming the show.
I just grabbed the camera and started to film everything that was going on.
”The film has now been removed from YouTube.
Carl Cox was headlining the event called Red Noise, and on Monday this statement was posted on his website
“I am deeply shocked and still stunned by the events of this Saturday [3rd November]
“My condolences go out to victims that were caught up in this horrific act that took place at this gig.“
I am informed that it was gang related and feel so sad that anybody would act in such a manner when the event was full of 7000 people having fun!
“I will try my best to continue on the tour across South America however deeply shocked and shaken I am.”

"Our condolences go out to the people that fell victim to this hideous act.Its deeply shocking to hear about this kind of thing going on with all those innocent people there such a tragic end lets hope this kind of thing never happens again and people can still party and have fun without living in fear of something so catastrophic happening again our condolences go out to the people and there family's. RC"

Here is the Vid...contains graphic view at your discretion!!!

We would like to hear your thoughts on this tragedy so don't just leave the page because there isn't a download available leave a comment and have your say.RC!

The youtube video


The series can be a bit hit and miss the A sides are usually on the money but the 'B & C' sides don't really have much to give, its as if they were hastily made with not alot of care or thought, basically there quite bland. Kaliber - Kaliber 14 is no different the 'A' side is a real quality cut its hard to describe it. It takes minimal and melody and joins them together perfectly, adding an infectious flute riff which is really very catchy indeed. In comes some harsh chugging bass and loopy melodies. Its probably one of the best in the Kaliber series, definitely one of my favourites. John Dahlbäck doing what he does best.

Simian Mobile Disco 'Hustler' - (ShackletonRemix) - [CDR]
There's a really good remix package coming soon of the latest Simian Mobile Disco track 'Hustler' which includes remixes from Armand Van Helden who gives it a full on club remake then there's a remix from Jesse Rose who adds his special fidget fingers to the mix.Grime crew Roll Deep also have a mix on this CDR.Last but not least is Shackleton who draws the mix out for a good 8 Min's its full of spaced out rhythm's and drowsy vocals its a long way off any of his previous more darker Dubstep work, its more minimal and floaty than dark and devastating easily the best on the CDR. The remix package will be available on Nov 26th definitely one to look out for.

Shit robot - Chasm [DFA records, 2007] (d/l)
Thanks to some well informed readers (hi scott, hi quirky) for dropping tips about this one! Gorgeous piece from the soiled robot on DFA. Huge and devastating audio-agony for the floors. Grinding bass, to make your friday go UMPF!

Have a nice weekend.

Don & Sherri

Matthew Dear - Don and Sherri (Hot chip version) [Ghostly int., 2007] (d/l)

Remix package of Asa Breed track Don and Sherri. Hot Chip makes this beautiful tune an even more heartfelt love story. "How could i let you forget me, if you dont even know me already? My name doesn't change very often. But it's never been Don and Sherri". There's also a very nice, stripped down MANDY remix on the release, so be sure to pick this up!
