Review: The most impressive characteristic of this 12" is the further development in sound processing (filtering and modulation), which seems to have no relation to anything else within the genre. 'Inversion' is a rhythm backed journey into the world of coloured noise, while the other side delivers a repetitive, gloomy and metallic sounding ambient piece. Tip!
Review: 'M 6' consists of two heavy stomping dub house tracks that are dominated by a multiple modulated sequence that reaches from considerable depths to the heights of coloured noises. All is surrounded by a warm and organic sound sphere of the usual characteristics. A deep groove experience is guaranteed.
Review: The Maurizio story continues with two more techno dub tracks of astonishing width, depth and presence of every single sound element. Some chords appear after a break in the middle and gives the ongoing groove even more drive.
Review: The R&S label has many similarities to the legendary Basic Channel label. Although the vibe isn't 'that technoid' anymore, an astonishing range of tracks is presented here. Every 12" so far stands for itself. 'Roll Off' is a deep shaped and pulsating ambient tune in two parts with a unique sound scape of organic chords and coloured noises.
Review: Boom! Finally another reissue of Boards Of Canada's seminal Hi Scores LP from 1996! Along with the likes of Aphex Twin, LFO and Squarepusher, these guys have helped to define how we see electronic music today and this particular LP is arguably their most complete when it comes to the dancefloor. The title track is a twisted, floaty bindle of breaks and beats, but it doesn't end there. Tracks like "Nlogax" are inherently Detroitian in nature thanks to the bleepy drum machines inside, and all we can say is that if you haven't laid hands on this album yet, you shouldn't miss the opportunity to cop it now. It's still so relevant and contemporary, it hurts.
Review: 'Ploy' is the imitating release by Basic Channel even before they had found their name under which they would create a complete outstanding release sequence. The vibe here is very infected by the early 90s Detroit techno movement. The B-side features an extended playing atmospheric remix by Detroit's major force Underground Resistance (2005 re-mastered re-issue!).
