After a series of EP, the Netherlands based producer DELTA FUNKTIONEN has just released his anticipated debut album on the great label DELSIN Records. As the nice cover design reflects « Traces » album is built as a collection of random pieces, tracks are some sophisticated explorations with no necessary related directorship excepted to be very well produced. The result of the “random package” make a lovely & solid composing. Although DELTA FUNKTIONEN is more known as a techno producer, this hybrid album sounds more electronic combining electro, techno, acid & house influenced by the 90’s Detroit & Chicago productions, so it’s a big album dedicated to music lover. The great DELTA FUNKTIONEN productions don’t push necessary the boundaries however it stays pretty authentic. The sounds are Atmospheric, deep, groovy & freaky at the same time and this album has got that thing captivating that isn’t really easy to describe with words… so let’s the music do the talk.

LAZER SWORD – Point of Return
The futuristic Duo LAZER SWORD has just released their second album entitled “Memory” on MonkeyTown Records, the sub-label of 50 Weapons. In this one, LAZER SWORD switches again their kind of production exploring the music style by style in a free continuous way. Indeed, they started with a debut album mixing Hip-Hop, Dubstep & Electro and then LOW LIMIT & LANDO KAL released a couple of EP oriented Glitch, Post-Dubsteb, Bass music, Jack House,…to finally released the “Memory” album mixing Electronic, Post-Dubstep & Jit (Ghetto bass). This new amazing project is actually an U.F.O floating between Hype & Undergound and should talk to open minds. The title “Memory” isn’t an accident. Actually is pretty honest because if you put this album under a microscope you will find many appreciated references to the Post-Future music …from the past & the present.
First of all, the cover reminds CYBOTRON : ‘Clear’ the one with the guy crossing the wall of time. About the music here’s some influences : the great Hi-Tek & sophisticated sounds featuring along the album remind the Detroit vibes related to URBAN TRIBE; the mix of sweet vocals with the cold & accelerated sounds was already developed by producers like DJ RASHAD, MACHINEDRUM (and URBAN TRIBE too); the production control on bass & on the echo near to the post-dubstep sounds are a bit similar to INSTRA:MENTAL. However at the end it isn’t a copy, LAZER SWORD really success to create his own specific signature during this new experience.
Their vibes are fresh, mental, sexy, hybrid and very well produced (as their usual). About the featurings, it isn’t be a surprise to to see JIMMY EDGAR & MACHINEDRUM who are musically close to LAZER SWORD and producing also in the legacy of early Electro. The entire album is very solid & smartly thought to be enjoyed on the dancefloor and also at home. As so far, it’s easily the best electronic album of 2012 . Hotly Recommended!
