Possblthings and Pulse Drift :: Something in the Leipzig water?

Jena. Leipzig. Electro. These two towns are synonymous with quality machine music. Frigid funk. Clinical cuts. Astral reductions. The Exaltics. AC Records, Lunatic, YUYAY. All call either of these German cities home. Now two more imprints are making their presence known on the streets of Jena and Leipzig, Possblthings and Pulse Drift. Jena. Leipzig. Electro. […]

Mace & Savage Grounds :: Double review (Lux Rec.)

Roasted industrial techno, abused body music, harsh and gnarled electronics. Music for different dance-floors, and once you get a taste for this particular poison there’s no going back. Once the Lux Rec guys went into the backroom of electronic music, gave the sunken eyed keeper a nod and ducked into the darkness, they’ve decided to […]

Kurt Y. Gödel :: Chord Rememory (YUYAY)

By my reckoning, anyone heading for Hyboid, Astro Chicken boss, for a track remake knows the score when it comes to electronic music. And it’s to the analogue pop aficionado that YUYAY have turned to open their second vinyl release. I’m always curious to see who labels call in on remix duty, especially imprints that […]

Stephen Lopkin / DimDJ :: Split EP (Endless Illusion)

An unlikely pairing of North and South, but a definite winner. Just before the new year was rang in Endless Illusion put out there third vinyl release. The Prague imprint impressed with CCO’s Space Race and is following the acid tainted line laid down by the Swiss man with a split 12”. Stephen Lopkin is […]

Savage Grounds :: Unpleasant Music for Unpleasant People (Lux Rec)

The style of techno that Savage Grounds are exploring isn’t the conventional type. Their form adopts the underproduction of Chicago house, the bursting rage of EBM and the embittered beats of industrial. Tense, tough and tortured from the Swiss duo. I was out playing records recently in Madrid, a warm up set. I realized while […]

CCO :: Space Race (Endless Illusion)

Space Race adopts its retro-futuristic namesake. From the outset the heavens are the inspiration. Florin Buchel has been quiet of late. After his excellent ad-hoc analogue collaboration with Lux Rec boss Daniele Cosmo as Savage Grounds there’s been radio silence. Until now. Under his best known alias, CCO (Contra Communem Opinionem), Buchel is debuting on […]

V/A :: The Dying Lights (Lux Rec)

The Dying Lights showcases the quality of Lux, past, present and more than likely future. If you’re new to the Swiss label you’re in for an deep cross section of what the past half decade has been about. If you’re a solid fan, plain and simple you’re in for a treat. Here’s to five more […]

Savage Grounds :: Over Fences (Lux Rec)

A demented, debased and devastating début from the Swiss duo. It’s taken a while for the Lux Rec co-founder Daniele Cosmo to start releasing, but the day has come. Perhaps it was a bit of arm-twisting from Lux Rec veteran Florin Buchel aka CCO (Contra Communem Opinionem) that has led to the pair hooking up […]

CCO :: Music for Cosmonauts (Lux Rec)

Büchel traverses space without losing his communication lines with Chicago Central. The EP pulls on prolonged melody paths, at times slipping into Techno, but is truly anchored in the sounds of House. With House, in all its incarnations, it can be difficult to sift through the flood of material. Despite the growing popularity of the […]
