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!

New release on MONKEYTOWN RECORD : LAZER SWORD « Memory » album

LAZER SWORDPoint 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!
