13 years after the masterpiece « Resurfaced », SCAN 7 is back on the Berlin-based TRESOR Records along with a new ep entitled « The Resistance ». Loyal to the original Techno music & to his committed thoughts, the leader of SCAN 7 aka TRACKMASTER LOU has produced a solid 3 tracks Ep. Spreading some militant lyrics, the title track of this vinyl sounds like SCAN 7 has put a magic 90s production out of the UNDERGROUND RESISTANCE‘s mothballs (U.R label was the one that launched SCAN7). Honestly this tune would warm the souls who still miss that time. The 2 others tracks ‘in & out Groove’ & ‘Why not’ are in a way more interesting dropping some 313 atmospheric dark groovy beats. And as the SCAN 7’s usual, his kinda enthusiastic tunes are well made to be played by DJs. With 2 brand new vinyls this month (the other one is the great « Mental Reaction » on Dtrt Undrgrnd™) TRACKMASTER LOU seems to have officially gotten his favorite RX5 machine out again for the best. Therefore we really hope « The Resistance ». EP will announce an entire album on the same imprint, their early underground connection was one of the most important for the foundation of Detroit Techno (2nd generation). Highly Recommended!

Coming from ‘nowhere’, the free compilation entitled « THE ELECTRO COMPENDIUM » did in 3 weeks & still doing a well deserved buzz, broadcasting the robotic music beyond its regular media exposure. Indeed, this attractive project has got the singularity to feature 116 tracks (Yep 116!) representing more than a quarter of the finest producers from the entire underground Electro niche reunited in order to say : the original electronica music is still here in 2012! (In a way, it will probably remind to the large audience what is behind the original name of Electro : Electro Bass, Electro Breaks, Electronica, Idm, Ambient, Hi-Tek…) This appreciated non-profit initiative is signed by the electro band VOLSOC. The entire listening in one-shot is of course not easy according to the 12 hours of music however the quality is maintained all the way. In addition, THE ELECTRO COMPENDIUM’s tracklist in its solid diversity could remind you the quality provided during the SATAMILE Records’ era! Everyone will easily make his own selection into these 116 tracks. THE ELECTRO COMPENDIUM is a real positive pace for electronica music. Recommended!
