Bjika – Chapters LP

Bjika has gone from strength to strength in the last few years and I would say this is his finest work yet. Very nice varied range of styles in the album. Nice to hear some of the more mellow dub techno from him.

Available digitally and also in Limited Edition CD-R in a cardboard sleeve. Handstamped and numbered. With full colour inlay.

Bjika – “Thanks to all my family and friends for supporting me. Big shout out to the secret listening crew: Mark, Rob, Mike, Dylan & Kev”

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.

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.

Docetism – Beskidy [nichts32]

New dubby material from Docetism.

Beskidy (eng. Beskids or Beskid Mountains) is a name for discontinuous series of mostly forested mountain ranges in the Carpathians that lay in Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Ukraine.

Each track was inspired by a different experience on one of many trails of Beskidy.

Hiking is not just a recreational activity. It’s about getting closer to nature, nurturing bonds with others and experiencing life in its simplest form – getting from point A to point B. For the very essence of life is will and will is movement. So pack your backpack and go.
