Russian-born, Berlin-located Anastasia Vtorova has been publicly sharing music with us for three years now, uploading experimentations to her SoundCloud page in between releases for labels like Tesla Tapes and Peder Mannerfelt Produktion. Her music as Machine Woman so far has been perfect for people who want to take the dancefloor into a weirder, deeper headspace while still pumping out sub-bass powerful enough to make your stomach lurch.
For some labels, maintaining a steady release schedule seems more important than the quality of the music they deliver. This is not an accusation that could be leveled at Leipzig’s Mikrodisko Recordings, whose releases are sporadic, to say the least. Since launching a decade ago, Mikrodisko – run by a group of friends and music-makers, with close ties to the city’s Homo-Elektrik collective – has put out just nine 12” singles, supplemented by low-key cassettes. In fact, their most recent vinyl outing, Mix Mup’s Drive By, dropped way back in 2012.

Sitting down to review a new compilation on Soul Jazz conjures up feelings of nostalgia for me. It’s a label that contributed to my own musical education over the years in a time when compilations were the best conduit to uncovering new avenues to explore. Many open-minded collectors and DJs born in the 1980s will probably have indulged in at least one of Soul Jazz’s releases, with the 100% Dynamite series leading to more personal examinations of Tenor Saw, Prince Buster, or Sister Nancy. That late-‘90s period of musical discovery was fuelled, in part, by hopeful punts on compilations, with one, maybe two recognisable names. Soul Jazz also played their own unwitting part in one of my most bittersweet memories; whilst I was in Milan DJing during an ill-fated visit to stay with an Italian girlfriend who dumped me midway through the week, I gifted some local dub obsessives my freshly bought copy of Studio One Dub.

It’s impressive to think that since he first emerged as Kassem Mosse in 2006, Gunnar Wendel’s work under the name really hasn’t changed all that much. His music may vary wildly in tempo, and some may veer closer to full-on techno while others may be more self-consciously house, but his productions are unmistakably dense. While his music may not be as intricate as that of Actress, as filled with the same kind of unrestrained joy as that of Omar S, or as classically deep as Theo Parrish, he’s a producer equally as respected as any of those figures. Like them, and a select few others, Wendel is proof that in a business where many lesser artists are willing to switch styles to pander to an easily bored public and press, a well-honed aesthetic often captures something the imagination better than any amount of stylistic genre-hopping ever could.
Long overdue double LP surfaces on the German label with minimum of fanfare.
