Tiefenrausch 012 – Federsen (incl. Brendon Moeller Remix) – The Myth EP

With the next and twelfth instalment of Tiefenrausch the dub techno label sets foot on the new continent again. The deep sea journey is joined by San Fransisco based artist Federsen and Bran- don Moeller aka Echologist or Beat Pharmacy – who contributed a remix to the three track EP.

“The Myth EP” represents Federsen raw and analogue signature sound. Warm and distorted machine noises create the pad for minimal drum patterns, bass grooves and accentuated chord echoes. On the A-Side Federsen shows us his unique style with “Contrasts”. Brandon Moeller on the other hand contributes his own sound and rounds up the EP with dubbed intrepretation of Federsens “Murmer”. The EP ends with the original version of that track.

The release is designed by Alex Ketzer who joins in for a collaboration with the illustrators Mag- dalena Paz and Florian Gassmann for the next ve releases of the Tiefenrausch label. The audio is mastered by SALZ music and the EP comes on 180g vinyl and shrink wrapped.

Areveeal – Amblex (Silhouette Tapes 004)

Roger van Lunteren( 030303 records, fabric(uk), Mental Groove (ch)) aka Areveeal embarks on an ambient journey full of sonic sideways and analogue synth jams, again displayin Follow this compass and path while the music proceeds, as it takes patience and experience not to skip through it.

With a duration of 63 minutes „amblex“ – released on the Frankonian experimental cassette label Silhouette Tapes – almost doubles the duration of RVL’s distortion tale „float“ (37 minutes / tmæins CD, 2001). Recorded in 1994 to music cassette, RVL releases an epic ambient recording that had laid dormant in his drawer for almost 23 years. Visual support comes again from the Dutch illustrator Merijn Hos (merijnhos.com, 030303 recs/Utrecht). His artwork perfectly underlines all acoustic nuances of „amblex“, easily inducing synesthetic impressions in the listener.

Syntaxx Records Fourth Release – Sintaxis EP (Madness BA)

Syntaxx brings you the anticipated 4th release in their digital catalogue. Madness Ba has skilfully crafted 2 rich but stripped organic groovers for your listening pleasure. The main track(and EP namesake), ‘Sintaxis’ promises to keep your foot tapping and head nodding to its infectious groove. ‘Sophisticated’ has its roots firmly in the continental deep/dream house sound with lashings of the signature Syntaxx dub. Reimagining this work is Matt Lee’s Martial Arts Mix, an energy filled extended tool-like cut aimed at the dance floor. Cateran finishes off the EP with his Restless Rework; a fidgety, Upbeat remix in his signature style.

Code Deploy – Permanent Risk EP (BUDARE006)

Code Deploy are self confessed ‘dub chord riders’ Jose Mata and Gino Azuero, who hail from Bogota and are up next on Barcelona based Budare: which was founded in 2015 by Moreon & Baffa. Starting off with the bumpin’ and hypnotic tech house of “Breathing” which has a real sense of swing to it that will appeal to fans Varhat or Mandar. On the flip, the smooth dubbed out groove that is “Dusty Dream takes it deeper, as does “Flummox” which works those delay drenched and reverberated aesthetics even more, assisted by some lush and ethereal elements. These ones are great for playing during the warm up or the afterhours alike and will mix well with your Mountain People Records.

Shinichi Atobe – From The Heart, It’s A Start, A Work Of Art

Epic EP this one, been playing a few tracks the last few weeks on the show.

Review from Boomkat

This album has its origins 17 yeas ago in early 2000, before Chain Reaction released the legendary Ship-Scope 12”. Three of the tracks here are taken from an acetate cut at Dubplates & Mastering at that time but which wouldn’t see the light of day until now, including another batch of tracks taken from original masters. Only 5 copies of that acetate were ever made so this is the first time any of these tracks are available for public consumption and, for our money, rank among the finest and most distinctive in either the Chain Reaction or Shinichi Atobe’s vaults.
