Review: 30 years have passed since Detroit's short-lived but enormously influential Music Institute club closed its doors. Alton Miller was one of the three men who founded the club, and here launches the "official label" with a trio of ear-catching cuts made in tribute. He opens with "Inner 5", a deliciously fluid, melodious and positive chunk of smile-inducing Motor City deep house, before layering spacey jazz-funk synthesizer sounds and starry chords atop another loose-limbed, machine-driven house groove. Arguably best of all, though, is deep and hypnotic flipside "Inner 8", whose sci-fi sounds and locked-in beats make it a near perfect hybrid of late night house grooves and stargazing techno intent.
Review: Lowless is pleased to present the launch of a new compilation serie called Confluence including four deep and dub techno tracks mainly inspired by the nature. Dycide - Raijin : In a stormy yet positive atmosphere with a specific bass line Dycide recreates the ancient thunders of Raijin, the god from the Shinto religion in Japan. Daniel[i] - A Moment Of Confidence : this Rolling track mixing field recording and dubby synths, delivers a frenetic and melancholic feeling. Cyspe - Morning Revelations has emerged during the first ever Cyspe live set back in 2013 as the morning sunshine came into the club it crystallised into sonic revelations. Atomic Moog - Floating Motion has a cold groove, jostling and simultaneously mixing notes, loops and sound design with frequencies flowing through the very same hypnotic, dark atmosphere and mood.
Review: Unknown Berlin area label/producer RECYCLED makes an outstanding debut release. Classic soundings, perfect structure and a styling that clearly makes reference on oldschool Techno. The record means busyness from the beginning with the floor heater Industries, followed by the steady firm beats Block. In B Side, Energy is probably the strongest track on the release and Skynet brings some chords and colors, adding class and deepness to this awesome 12".
