Groove (remastered)
Cat: SMR 015. Rel: 26 May 23
Big Groove (6:10)
Tribal Groove (6:51)
Big Tribal Groove (Trent remix) (6:33)
Review: Sound Metaphors continue to indulge their love of early to mid 90s club gear from back when trance was trance and the possibilities were still wide open. They already released The Factory by Italian producer Sergio Fazio last year, and now he's dug into the archives and pulled out an unreleased EP from the same mid 90s era which never quite materialised under his AssueFazio alias. If you appreciate throbbing, proggy tech-trance heavy on the drums and bubbling just below boiling point, you're going to love this EP. Trent knows what's up, delivering a remix that maintains that teasing, pensive mood to perfection.

How To Use The World (remastered)

How 2 Use The Sky (3:19)
Freedom Works (3:52)
Sea Of Quiet (4:07)
Tapping The Collective Memory (4:30)
Review: Marco Calderoni seems to have released just one thing and that was his How to Use The World Volume 2 EP back in 1991. Sound Metaphors Records has now remastered it and recompiled it for this all new pressing which sends you deep into his mix of ambient, house and Balearic across six sublime cuts. '7 Heavens' is the glistening opener with nice deep analogue beats, and 'Exploring The Unknown' carries on the same vibe before 'How 2 Use The Sky' is like a perfect post rave comedown. The second half is another scintillating mix of silvery, shiny synth lines and dusty analogue drums that sounds like little else before or since.

Selected Productions
Cat: SMR 010. Rel: 02 Dec 22
Skull Valley - "Ghost Story" (7:16)
Ballistic Mystic - "The Accident Of Birth" (5:49)
High Lonesome Soundsystem - "Champion Sound" (Tom dub) (7:42)
Review: Tom Chasteen is an LA-born mega-musician who is widely credited for helping to spurn the San Francisco rave movement of the 1990s, not least by founding the Exist Dance label. Masquerading under various monikers such as Eden Transmission, High Lonesome Sound System and Voodoo Transmission, many of his tracks are cemented in the rave music canon as some of the most pivotal, thanks to their pushing of a rather psychedelic sound. Suitable for the looking-back era of the 2020s, the new EP by Tom, 'Selected Productions', zooms out of that era and into the present, re-homing in on some of that artist's later works when the SanFran heyday was over. Downtempo, full of international influences, and retaining that scratchy 'lifted from vinyl and remastered' sound, this is spiritual lyrical miziricle music for the dancing astral traveller.

Extroscopic (Extroscopic version dub) (6:10)
Extroscopic (Trancextro Scopie) (5:29)
Extroscopic (Anatolian Weapons remix) (8:42)
Extroscopic (Anatolian Weapons Deep mix) (6:04)
Review: Sound Metaphors has lined up a bunch of killer EPs to drop in quick fashion and this one from Data features several different versions of one fantastic single. 'Extroscopic' is deft techno with nimble baselines and light synths that float through space on the Extroscopic version while the dub is even more warm and bubbly. 'Extroscopic' (Trancextro Scopie) has more trance-tinged chord work and then Anatolian Weapons turns out a more psychedelic version with silvery percussive chatter and last of all a Deep Mix that is indeed a heads down back room techno trip.

Join The Delkom User Club (3:42)
Review: Delkom is the brainchild of two Berlin legends: Saba Komossa, a pioneer of new beat and euro house, and Gabi Delgado, one half of the influential electro-industrial duo D.A.F. Futur Ultra is their only album, originally released in 1990 and now reissued by Sound Metaphors. The album is a sonic snapshot of Germany's capital on the verge of transformation - full of raw energy, sexual tension, brickwalled pressure and postwar technologic movement, all channeled into ecstatic monoified synthpop. The album flows as a continuous mix, each track offering a different facet of Delkom's vision. Described as a record that sounds like "almost a dub mix that almost wasn't allowed to be released by the record label," anyone after a slice of German ingenuity condensed into incipient techno form is sure to lose their heads at this one.

Summer's Child (12:36)
Review: Those of a certain age might well remember this early trance and breakbeat anthem from Life Form. It landed in 1993 and now on the occasion of its 30th birthday, it has been fully remastered for this reissue on Sound Metaphors. Right now this sort of sound is full back en vogue with all sorts of young producers aping those early glory days but few will match the quality of 'Come Down' with its slick breakbeat loops and alluring female vocals. There are two mixes, a Juan Ramos remix that is more downtempo and the captivating 'Summer's Child' is also included.

Older Brother From The Rock (reissue)
Cat: SMR 006. Rel: 10 Jun 22
Brother This (Techno Om mix) (12:01)
Brother That (Tribal Om mix) (7:13)
Brother That (Om beats) (6:47)
Review: Manchester born drummer Morgan King is behind these all consuming and dubbed out, tribal-tinged breakbeats. He dropped them first back in '91 and now they get a reissue right when this sort of sound is back in fashion. They have been remastered for the occasion and are perfect for head down and soot-black floors in the dead of night. 'Brother This' (Techno Om mix) is a 12 minute trip with snaking bass and real menace. 'Brother That' (Tribal Om mix) gets more stoned and zoned out and 'Brother That (Om beats)' is a final piece of this well-crafted puzzle.

Cittaplaneta (8:33)
Review: Paradise 3001 enjoyed something of a revival when some of his classic work were picked up by Banoffee Pies for an EP back in 2020. The work of one Aad de Mooy, Paradise 3001 has a huge legacy in the realm of early trance music, and now this collection on Sound Metaphors travels back into that golden early 90s era in detail, presenting 10 tracks across two discs with tracks from his classic releases and lesser spotted rarities alike. Given the prevalence of trance in modern club music, you know full well these varied, mellow and trippy nuggets will be finding favour amongst all manner of spinners, from back room beatniks to big room bosses.

Spiral Tribe 3
Cat: SM23 05. Rel: 02 Dec 22
Wurlitzer (7:19)
MSCV (6:43)
Speaker Burn (6:19)
Review: The last step in the Spiral Tribe trilogy from the R-Zac output (aka a collaboration between Sebastian Vaughan and Simon Carter) featuring three tracks in the pioneering style of early Spiral Tribe from 1994, clearly establishing the inspirational groundwork for dancefloor genres and mind sets to come. Driving layers of bass, transients and dubbed out melodic loops transforming into percussive elements and vice versa throughout extended excursions in fast paced machine powered exercises. Viciously remastered for maximum effect on large sound systems.

Sex Line (5:29)
Futureless (5:24)
Saurus In New York (5:06)
Futureless (6am mix) (5:59)
Review: First released in 1992 on Muzak, an Italian label headed up by Leo Mas, Fabrizio Lazzari, and Andrea Gemolotto, this crucial 12" played a pivotal role in shaping Italy's dancefloor electronic scene of the early 90s. Infused with influences from Detroit and New York, it forged a unique sound that is still fresh today. Now, it sees an official reissue with a great remix of 'Futureless' by Berlin-based Trent. This revamped version strips away the breakbeat elements, infusing the track with a new acid vibe. The reissue breathes new life into a timeless classic, bridging the gap between past and present electronic landscapes.

Cat: SM 2304. Rel: 09 Aug 22
Sensor (6:40)
Radar (5:55)
Antenna (6:09)
Probe (5:08)
Review: Highly sought after tracks by Dutch legends Unit Moebius, the godfathers of the Hague's techno sound, have been reissued here by Berlin's Sound Metaphors on SM23. All cuts like the dirty and cracking industrial of 'Sensor' and the contorted IDM of 'Radar' are taken from their 1996 Untitled EP on Spiral Tribe's Network23 imprint - which goes for large amounts on the secondhand market. Over on the flip, the mental overdrive of 'Antenna' or the minimal tool 'Probe' sound like something that Donato Dozzy or Mike Parker would play in their DJ sets. Essential!

Sword Of Blue Flame Over America (Juan Ramos remix) (6:48)
Review: West Coast rave scene specialists Michael Kandel and Tom Chasteen are Voodoo Transmission and they have one again plunged deep in their vaults to serve up this reissue EP. One side boasts two dynamic dancefloor renditions that blend rhythmic layers with dubbed-out effects - 'Crazy Jane' channels Debbie Harry's 'Heart of Glass' on LSD. The flip side intensifies with downtempo gabba vibes with raging synths and abundant cymbal action. Three versions incorporate samples from Jimmy Stewart's 1946 monologue in It's A Wonderful Life to add another vibe entirely.
