Oscar Mulero, Exium, and Reeko collaborate in a three-part series celebrating Pole Group’s 50th release entitled ‘Seleccion Natural’.
In the spirit of Pole Group, this record sees the label collide its core roster’s characters into a special record. Every track has been created by Oscar Mulero, Exium, and Reeko, with each artist producing different components at random phases – a creation loop that means you’ll never know who is making what.
“You’ll find no ambient interludes, no anthems, no big breakdowns… every piece in this creation has been designed for the finest dancefloors. Rough textures mixed with solid beats and continuous synth lines, techno in essence made by those who never left the boat during rough times – pioneers making the soundtrack of the future.” – Pole Group
‘Seleccion Natural’ is no-nonsense techno from the off, kick-started by the ominous ‘Expression Gnt’ with its subterranean atmospheres, moving into the murky aesthetic of ‘Molecular Genetics’ before arriving at the rolling drums and whirring effects of ‘Hox Genes’. A rattling lead joins shuffling white noise in ‘Biological Fitness’ until the meandering ‘Random Mutations’ utilizes twisted synths and robust kicks. From start to finish the oscillating ‘Genotype’ is a mesmerising roller, making way for dusky tones in the decadent and tantalising ‘Geometric Animal’. Tying it all together, ‘Evolution’ is the deepest cut on the release with its aquatic texture and throbbing bassline.
This very special pack is offered in three slices, with Pole Group 50 and Pole Group 50.2 dropping on vinyl and digital formats whilst 50.1 will be released as a complementary digital-only release.
