If you put the Chicago’s flavor and the London’s flavor in a test tube, what will be the chemical effect!? Excepted if you firstly thought about old ‘ACID HOUSE music’, it’s pretty difficult to imagine what will be the result… We guess that will be hybrid, but will that be consistent or not!?…
We already know the ‘Juke music’ along with samples of ‘Soul’ (like Dj RASHAD does) and now thanks to the brilliant
chemist poetry called MACHINEDRUM we are going to discover a new kind of ‘Juke’ along with some UK ‘Future Garage’ vibes (following the legacy of BURIAL). Dope :

The “Elektro Domesticos 2” was probably one of the greatest electro compilation released last year. 12 years after the 1st issue of Elektro Domesticos (which was also the first spanish electro compilation), via Fundamental Records ALEK STARK released the 2nd part to highlight some new undergound producers based in spain. Now exactly 12 months later, “ELEKTRO DOMESTICOS 3” is out, built on the same processus : a sweet cover for a great triple vinyl, a carbon double CD and a generous digital pack (43 tracks). At this occasion, the 3rd issue features also the support and tunes of 5 international artists : SCAPE ONE [Uk], ZERKALO [∞], MR. VELCRO FASTENER [Fi], AS1 [Us], DYNAMIK BASS SYSTEM [Ge]. We recommend this release and we are pretty sure the Music and Designs will speak for themselves. So, check all that if don’t have already…

“The Opening Of The Cerebral Gate” produced by the half of DREXCIYA JAMES STINSON a.k.a TRANSLLUSION is without any doubt one of my favorite Electro-Techno cover. I discovered this one few years before listen the full-length album that is of course a masterpiece.
I Dig this cover designed by SEMICONDUCTOR, especially its minimalist graphic design which let us imagine our own parallel world (…like the effects of Music do). The geometrical style and the colors are pretty catchy acting as a ‘logotype’ in order to be concentrated on the meaning of the picture. Therefore the cover features many levels of interpretation… However get it or not, the design composed only of straight lines is still very peaceful to watch. A real inspiration!
