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!

Here’s the video clip of the title-track : Semi-Automatic

New self-release by DVS NME : « Metastasis » Album

Posted by on 05/16/2012 | Category : Album-EP Reviews / Stay informed by subscribing to RSS Feeds or to Twitter

The dark electrohead DVS NME has just self-released his 2nd album entitled “Metastasis” via Bandcamp website. This new project is clearly more introspective and therefore more sentimental than his last EP. DVS NME designs a kind of robotic spleen with great shades of grey. His productions keep a minimalist & purist vision of electro in the legacy of KRAFTWERK along with this cold & dark ambient reminding the JOHN CARPENTER’s touch. The “Metastasis” album contains 11 tracks with a constant relevance (a special mention for 2 mind blowing tracks : ‘Solitary’ & ‘Disappeared’). This mysterious project is actually the best DVS NME album. Recommended!

New release on TUDOR BEATS : PAUL BLACKFORD « Dream Sequence » EP

Posted by on 05/11/2012 | Category : Album-EP Reviews / Stay informed by subscribing to RSS Feeds or to Twitter

One more time MR PAUL BLACKFORD drops an other solid project! Following his latest killer album on Binalog Records, PAUL BLACKFORD has just released a new EP on the TUDOR ACID’s imprint : Tudor Beats‘. This ep entitled “Dream Sequence” is a great invitation to float into the galaxy, into this special mood very representative of this producer. PAUL BLACKFORD’s music is a sweet blend of spacey Electro, melodic (UK) Drum’n’Bass and (Detroit) accelerated Techno. This EP features 2 original tracks and 2 remixes of the title track by SCREWTEC (BlackRed) and TUDOR ACID which are both not bad but a level behind the powerful original. It’ a real pleasure to see PAUL BLACKFORD keeps saving the underground music in its original form : groundbreaking, abstract, timeless, not too cleaned, truthful, fascinating… Recommended!

Artwork 2011 by Alek Stark – Original graphic concept 1998 by Cisco

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…
