The tasty label POMELO introduces a new underground Detroit-based producer named KEMETRIX aka SOULWERK. Close and affiliated to MOODYMAN & STINGRAY, KEMETRIX mixes smartly the two main musical styles of DETROIT : the hot Soul music & the weird Hi-Tech music. His great 6-track EP entitled “Soulbrother #3 ” is actually his first project announcing a promising series. His sweet voice barely touching the omnipresent futuristic-sounds is a surprising hybrid jam, really up-to-date. For the connoisseurs, the KEMETRIX’ productions should remind some new musical fields recently explored by his homies on the URBAN TRIBE’s Selftitled Album (2010). KEMETRIX is for sure a new type of artist to follow. Nice pick again from POMELO Records that continues to promote the music in advance of its time. Recommended!

The Vienna based label TRUST is a very unique underground imprint speaking forthright to the avant-garde of the electro niche. Indeed, their no nonsense releases are focused on the weird electronic music (related to Detroit sounds) and produced in that truthful futuristic way. Therefore some listeners feel confused by that unusual aesthetic however their release fusing abstract design & sophisticated tunes are really tasty breaking out of old electro patterns in order to push this type of music to its high-level; and all that with the help of finest & regular producers.
After the 20th release signed by STINGRAY313, it’s actually the UK Electro Break producer CLATTERBOX who returns on « TRUST Label with a new ep entitled Semi-Automatic ». This project contains 4 killer tracks, 2 original mixes and 2 remixes : the 1st produced by CREEPY AUTOGRAPH an alias of the talented JIMMY EDGAR & the 2nd remix is signed by LOK44 aka DANIEL POLIG (who runs Pomelo Records). Each tune of this ep makes sense dropping some hybrid vibes with a singular kind of groove and about CLATTERBOX, he seems to be in his best creative ability. Therefore the “Semi-Automatic” vinyl is simply another outstanding release coming from this label. Recommended!
