Various Artists - Work

Sep 29, 2014 op017Nearing its first birthday, Other People is celebrating the only way it knows how: Work. The label has put out new material every Sunday since it launched with last year's Trust compilation, and the culminating Work comp doesn't break that streak-consisting almost entirely of new material from Other People's artist roster, and a few remixes from some special guests. Work is not, however, an uncooked mash of music. It's sequencing is deliberate and its selection purposefully not encompassing. In fact, Work is more an album than anything else.
Kicking off the affair is SoulRead the whole story

Tin Man - Ode

Sep 29, 2014 atcd04What does a rave sound like the next day? The strobe lights in a dark warehouse, the pounding kick, the blur of ecstatic faces lead to a morning-after emptiness, all fade into memories of the friends you once had. On Ode, Tin Man (proper name Johannes Auvinen) explores this feeling, offering tracks which possess an exhausted joy, the aural equivalent of the stretch of time beginning when the last record is played and stretching on towards the doleful contemplation of last night's unmade sheets.

Appropriately, Tin Man's melancholic dance music is more club-ready than ever. TheRead the whole story

Marko Fürstenberg - Ghosts From The Past

Sep 12, 2014 ORN032

Marko Fürstenberg – “Ghosts From The Past” In certain ever-present moments, the ghosts from the past are following us. And sometimes they do so in order to gently help us on our way. We can find this theme on Marko Fürstenberg's latest release “Ghosts From The Past”. Marko, currently living in Leipzig, has been experimenting with sound since 1999.

Rooted in classical Dubtechno, he not only knows how to interpret it, he's extending it further with his own personal aesthetic. In 2001, his first releases on a number of netlabels

Kalipo - Yaruto

Sep 12, 2014
ANTIME010LPKalipo is Jakob Häglsperger from Berlin who devotes himself to experimental electronica. His debut album Yaruto follows a series of remixes and contributions to compilations released by Antime and Stiff Little Spinners. On it, Häglsperger tries to create a both unique and timeless sound that takes cues from dance music, downbeat and Gamelan traditions alike. Making use of his wide array of analogue synthesizers, a Rhodes piano, a metallophone and guitars, Häglsperger is creating the abstract narrative of an impersonal biography by creating moods that correspond

Right up my alley, my boulevard, my avenue, my strasse. ryan crosson (vision quest) love these two separate and they make a great combo together! I prefer the bookends, Neighbors and Mennie. Thanks!!! Franco Cinelli - Nico Lahs <3, Cynosure <3! Deadbeat - bombs for days Brett Johnson - Played this last night. HEAT! Philip Sherburne - Deep, deep, deep. Digging! Konrad Black - 'em. Molly - Nice one !! love all tracks .. thank you Yaya - This ep is fucking good!! I love all the tracks but Neighbours is the bomb !! Thanks !! Danny Tenaglia - all good...thanks!!!! Dj Poontz - Love the deep sexy sound Blond:ish - neighbours is the bizzniss :) interplane too ... loops well too! Andrew Grant - you put smooth into Techno!!! luving the sounds Catz n Dogz - oh yes neighbours are awesome! Voigtmann - Killer Cynosure as usual! GREAT Walker Barnard - Love it! All three tracks are solid. Will be playing these tonight. Tobias Van Veen - A darker and more committed sound for Cynosure, these are clipped anthems for dancefloor denizens. "Abstract Matters" is an especially well-crafted track, containing a kind of relentless motion into the deep — it reminds me of the moving shadows that used to haunt TO's obscure BLUE label. Joel Alter - Nice warm and soft sounding! Still with power. Karotte - Mennie is great. and neighbours i cool to. love it. Nitin - Nice tracks! Mennie is the one i'm leaning towards. ”
