Guido Schneider & Daniel Dreier – Liquid Summer EP – Opulence

Love this. Right from the moment the beats hit you know you’re in for a good time. Liquid Summer contains the sort of uber funkiness that you can’t help but move too. Its rolling, effortless grooves come primed with all sorts of atmosphere delights expanding across some ten minutes of mysterious temptation. Remixes come from an excellent Martin Buttrich who adds a darker mood to the equation with a grainy intensity, while reworking it all up on an equally great Sub Fire Dub. Second track, Behind The Curtain sequences an elastic grooviness that again sets the pulses racing with expectations. This time the drums are much tighter allowing space for an ambience that creates intrigue all the way down. Ostrich creates another first rate remix feeling moodier, exploring a startling array of sounds which are never less that totally compelling. Brilliant.

Release: December 16

Guido Schneider & Jens Bond
Here I Am
Cadenza Lab

CAL018This delicious, brooding production from Guido Schneider & Jens Bond is little short of outstanding. Not only do the intriguing electronic rhythms captivate your attention creating a hypnotic, inviting soundscape but with the addition of commanding voice, trumpet and timbale the picture is warmly complimented by the human touch. Another first rate piece of music from the Cadenza stable. Planet E’s Monty Luke then remixes the title track with pulsating drums, acid styled bass and squelchy keys. The likewise excellent Flags Of Peace, finishes with punchy instrumentation featuring infectious organ stabs, spacey effects, flourishes of Balearic guitar and a spoken message that will surely resonate throughout the summer…

release: June 10

Julien Chaptal & Lauhaus - Jujuman digital.inddJulien Chaptal & Lauhaus challenging collage of sounds fly high along the lines of tribal and hypnosis. It’s a deeply intoxicating blend of slightly unsettling moods coupled with dark, pulsating rhythms and striking sound effects firing off in all directions, with the relief of subtle melody only occurring via moody synths some six minutes in. Franck Roger’s Remix as you would expect adds quality House bass to the equation while supplying his own take on the effects with as usual inspired consequences. Second and equally good is, Watching You which supplies sleazy suggestion vocally running alongside various Acid tweaks and building layers of percussion.

ONE032-ARTWORKAnother great release from One records this time seeing the label explore seductive possibilities by Frenchmen Yamen & EDA. You could describe this as very late night or illicitly early morning depending on your sense of time but either way this excellent production simmers with low-slung tension. Powered by throbbing bass and tough percussion this features an entrancing monologue playing alongside the whirring instrumentation. Remixes come from Shaun Reeves, Jay Haze & Bill Patrick who pick up the tempo as they inject twisted electronics into the mix while concentrating on the Rap part of the vocal. Next, All Out continues the tension with deep beats and echoed stabs giving it all spacey far flung quality. The Subb-an 5am Remix completes with an all out Techno assault that spins an invigorating basslines against quick-fire drums.
