Dist – Dawn EP [BIG55]

Dawn is a EP inspired by the snowy mountains of Mendoza, Argentina. Three flowing and mesmerizing tracks are presented here.

Dawn might outstand from the others here but not cause it’s better. Just because it has that mystic feeling underneath the dubby beat. Apart from the mountains, Dist got inspired a lot by Rod Modell, specially in this one.

The eleventh release of Tiefenrausch sets the start for the third cycle of five deep techno releases. Coming up with a four track EP by Upwellings who contributes his duby “Tales from the Underworld” to the Tiefenrausch catalogue.

With “Echoes From the Past” Upwellings brings the entrance into this musical journey. The immersive groove of “Stones Lullaby” takes us into the deepness of this laid-back dubtechno sound. “When the Lights Fade Away” is the dancefloor focused tune on the B-side of the vinyl while “Hearing the Solar Wind” covers the ambient side of the genre and brings us back to the shore.

The release is designed by Alex Ketzer who joins in for a collaboration with the illustrators Magdalena Paz and Florian Gassmann for the next five releases of the Tiefenrausch label. The audio is mastered by SALZ music and the EP comes shrink wrapped.

FunkyJeff – Moritz von Oswald tribute mix

In the late 1993, mysterious records of mind bending electronic echoes, in length and structures, started to emerge from Berlin. Plain sleeved records with enigmatic graphics pressed in Detroit, but made in Germany by two guys from Berlin who weren’t so keen about showcasing their physique, but rather focused on the music. Basic channel and Moritz von Oswald took techno music to a degree in a variety of shapes that encompassed dub, ambient, downtempo, techno and basically crafted minimal techno de facto. Mr. von Oswald aimed towards face eating repetition and stretching the groove into a place that opened a rich and vast new territory in music for the dance floor and sound textures that were and still are unique.

It’s like Lee Perry would stretch his legs in warm bath with nothing but sequencers and TB 303 for company. Using the mixing board as a tool like his Jamaican nemesis, von Oswald swiftly emerged as the quintessential post-modern artist : collaboration were spawned with Juan Atkins, Carl Craig, Nills Petter Molvaer and so on. The holy grail of techno music. Pure class, heavenly remixes and blissful dubby basslines.
