Qnete :: Clapping The Soles of Your Feet (Drowned)

A record that showcases Qnete’s talent but one where more scope would have been welcomed. From time to time an artist comes along who, due to a number of reasons, might have mass appeal. In electronic the idea of “mass appeal” is a little bit of an oxymoron, let’s say an artist who can appeal […]

Goodbye, but not farewell :: Femur Mix

I was lucky enough to get behind the turntables there in November of 2015, a mangled and mashed warm up mix before Alessandro Parisi and Juanpablo rounded off a cracking Frigio Showcase.

I don’t know much about Bremen. I know where it is, North Germany. It’s a sizable […]

Qnete :: Untitled (ZCKR)

The strong steady percussion bends and buckles under its own weight, harmonies squeezed through by the sheer force of snare and cymbal. Solid Techno from this new source. ZCKR Records seems to embrace any, or all, styles. To date the Bremen imprint has shied away from the spotlight. The club night come label scurried past […]
