4Plae Records debut release ‘The Franchise EP’

‘The Franchise EP’ is the first of many collective releases from 4Plae Records, a London based label launched at the start of this year. The label stands for creativity and up and coming artists, as well as making connections between a new wave of artists and some producers who have been on the scene for a while now.

This first release consists of 4 tracks from various artists from different places over the globe.

‘Inspired by A Lost City’ by El Choop (a Bristol based hardware finatic) and ‘Personal Motives’ by Nirgoona Project are very progressive and ambient dub techno tracks which have both an energetic and laid-back factor. The second track on the EP is an upbeat deep house track, ‘Untitled#02′ by SuCaz is a unique sounding track with a with a lot of funk and soul in it, whilst the final track – ADMNTi’s ‘Stuper’ – sits somewhere in the middle of the other sounds on the release.

Thrumcast 019 – Noah Pred

Thrumcast 019 by Noah Pred is probably our most energetic house/tech/dub offering to date … delivered to us in what can only be described as a class of it’s own, much like every carefully selected release on his label, Thoughtless Music.

Producing and performing live for over ten years, Noah emerged from the Canadian underground as a sought-after techno DJ with a sophisticated sound and unique style.

Making the leap to Europe after five years exploring the extensive musical underground of Canada’s multicultural metropolis, he comes deeply impacted by the unique influence of Toronto. Launching his Thoughtless imprint there over seven years ago, the label is now on its hundredth release. Then there’s the much-loved Thoughtless label parties….

Along with a rather enviable list of record labels he has released on, Noah’s latest full-length, Third Culture, continues to earn critical praise, further establishing his reputation as an artist with as much vision as skill.

Biodub – The Tube [Tiefenrausch Musik]

With “The Tube” the seventh release of the label Tiefenrausch awakes – this time out of the hands of Biodub. As a reminiscence to the early times of dub, the record comes as 7inch vinyl.

In a classical but innovative manner Biodub creates a tune between relaxed as well as driving beats and an irresistible deepness. The record presents one track in two different versions. While “The Tube” solely bets on the instrumental deepness, “Until Forever” comes with the voice of Ray Darwin and disperses a pinch of Reggae into the track.

The vinyl is decorated with the artwork of Alexander Ketzer. He created the perfect cover referring to Jules Verne. 20.000 leagues under the sea – exactly the right slogan for Tiefenrausch 007.

Versible – Prunus EP

Deep sounds from Versible aka Daniel Eberhard. Deep & groovy sounds as we love it. Short excursion into the field of botanics: the name of the ep: ‘prunus’ is the genus name whereas each track has a specific name (e.g. ‘dulcis’). those are botanical terms. the combination of the 2 terms: ‘prunus dulcis’ is the common almond, ‘prunus serotina’ is the black cherry, ‘prunus domestica’ means plums and ‘prunus cerasus’ means sour cherry.

Segv & Appian – Janky (SLYFOX 002)

After their first split release on Sly Fox two years ago, Segv and Appian are back together again for round two and in both cases the approach to deep, crafty techno demands attention from the off. Segv’s “Janky” has a sharp drum section buffed with plenty of kinks in the otherwise steadfast groove, while a slick dub chord pulses through the core of the track.

Appian has a lighter, skipping flavour at work on “Re:Shell”, with a punchy bassline anchoring the track while swishing chords try to offset the swung funk of the beat. In both instances there is a distinctive, addictive quality that should get these two emerging producers plenty of air time.
