Various – So Low: Remixes (The Vinyl Factory)
We’ve already listed one of the tracks from this record on our April chart, but it deserves as much attention as there is. The Vinyl Factory compilation features remixes by Powell, JD Twitch, Helena Hauff and John Bender, and it can feed the most demanding collector’s taste, and we like the fact, that only two tracks are danceable, because sometimes it’s nice to listen and do nothing else.
Red Axes – Sun My Sweet Sun (Permanent Vacation)
How well does this record name go with the name of the label? As well as it does with the groovy basslines, variety of percussion and tribal mood of the title track.
Big up for the Tel Aviv duo making their way to the big electronic music world.
Oliver Ho – Burning Heretics (Blueprint Records)
Oliver Ho is back with the first solo release in 10 years. Great timing – exactly to the 20th anniversary of Blueprint Records.
The adrenaline-filled 4-track record pulsates and screams, keeping you engaged in “burning heretics”, scaring a bit. Perfect.
LA-4A – Phonautograph (Delft)
This album by LA-4A, who is also known as Ambivalent is a perfect example of contemporary techno album, which carries a huge luggage of experience and influences.
Vernon Felicity – Atlantis EP (Delft)
Another one on Delft, coming from Boris Bunnik aka Vernon Felicity. He releases so often, that it’s hard to accept that someone can shoot out so many amazing tracks. The acidic, groovy, sci-fi techno 4-track is definitely one to add to a properly-built techno shelve.
