Various Artists – Freq Traxx Vol. 2 – Superfreq

Of course this is good. But then Superfreq never fails to present itself in anything less than the most positive light, which in this case, casts a gaze across the four excellent tracks making up Vol.2. Opening with Tenampa’s Gabriel I and Italian producer Rawbach who have co-produced the devilish, exhilarating raptures of Taured the excitement and energy levels are set to stun. Delicate Droids follow with the wonky bass driven Not Fit To Make Tea, while Radio Rental’s robust Deep Lana follows on with more probing, refreshing music. The teasing Acidic tones of Zap Club by A-Eno-Acid then round of the selection with its reference to the Brighton venue. Each track a standout in their own right.

Release: October 12


Mr. C – Show Me – Superfreq

Celebrating the labels fiftieth release of music in the only way that Mr. C ever could. In other words, this is fucking excellent. Before I get to the original we have Ruede Hagelstein’s Synthesizer Love Mix which does just that as a shimmering array of that very electronic instrument weaves its way across a pulsating universe of teasing, tempting sounds. Then next his Rave Tool hits hard and square with one of those kick drums who don’t want to mess with, while the synthetic voices gather pace with fiery syncopation proving to be just as wonderful. The equally great Radio Rental Remix follows fusing deeper bass with downright sleazy vibes that sense danger all the way down. Which brings us not so neatly to the Original’s wonky, tripped out low-end delivery, plus a fistful of crisp machine drums, and tempting voices to point you in the way of dizzying distraction. An outstanding release. Of course.
