Julius Steinhoff - Flocking Behaviour

Jun 30, 2014 smallvillecd09In the ever-expanding universe of deep house, Julius Steinhoff is far from being a stranger. Half of the dynamic duo Smallpeople, founder and one of the steersmen behind Hamburg's Smallville empire (record store/ label/ party curator around the globe) as well as a producer and DJ in his own right, Steinhoff is closely associated with a group of like-minded people that unite fresh ideas and individualism with a certain consciousness of tradition. That "Flocking Behaviour" is well embodied in Steinhoff's debut album by the same name. After a string of 12-inches for the likesRead the whole story

Para One - Club

Jun 20, 2014
ParaOne_Club_PackshotLD.jpgAmong a thousand projects, Para One is back on the dance floor with "Club", a new album which was not meant to be one, but believe it or not: it's serious stuff! "The 'Passion' album is the background for this, as I decided to reshape it for my live act, explains Para One. I've rebuilt the tracks entirely, making live versions for festivals and bigger clubs. Then I found myself with a totally different album. It's not a live album. The tracks have been modified and reinterpreted. It's my tribute to Soulwax's "Night Versions". Subtlety was

MrFlash - SonicCrusader

Jun 20, 2014 MrFlash_SonicCrusader_cover_LD.jpgWho is Mr Flash? The best kept secret of the French Touch? The beat maker who ran with the TTC crew in the 90's? The passionate collector of rare and bizarre records? The producer that was called in to help Sebastien Tellier build his blue musical cult? The man behind a handful of 12" with saturated contours on Ed Banger Records (Motorcycle Boy, Disco Dynamite, Domino) combining rock, hip hop and electro? He's all of that, really.

Mr Flash's debut album is titled Sonic Crusader (in reference to an article in Dazed & Confused on the start of Ed Banger), which perfectlyRead the whole story

Klaxons - LoveFrequency

Jun 20, 2014 Klaxons_LoveFrequency_packshotBD.jpg2007 Klaxons did what pretty much no band have done since: arrive with a fully fledged ideology - new rave. It might be hard to remember now, but back then it was strange seeing a high street normally shifting outfits in various hews of bland flooded with weird neon clothing.
On 16th June 2014, Love Frequency, Klaxons' third album drops. While their second record was perceived as a rejection of their dance influenced past, this is a return to it. Once again they've leapt to the front of a queue of none as the only group of people blending the euphoria of today's dance scene

Elektro Guzzi — “Observatory” on MACRO

Meoko (UK): “ May releases top 10. ”

Altroverso Radio (IT): “ Trojan Robot on air. T”

Ame (Innervisions): “ Trojan Robot - fantastic! ”

Bleep (UK): “Alaska Flip feels like it would ideally work as montage music in a Nicolas Winding Refn revenge movie. ”

C-Heads Mag (AT): “ At the best concerts the audience forgets that there is a band on stage and just dances. ”

CHRY Radio (CDA): “ Dynamic and engaging release - Trojan Robot is my fave! On air at Diversions show. ”

Do Androids Dance (UK): “ Elektro Guzzi has been going strong since the release of their debut album in 2010, and they are making it their aim to blow away what you thought live techno music could sound like (and how its made). ”

EQ Magazine (UK): “ Really great! Trojan Robot is the hit but we love the vibes on Undulata and The Grist too. ”

Faze Magazine (DE): “ Drums, Bass, Gitarre sind die die Instrumente, mit denen Bernhard Hammer, Bernhard Breuer und Jakob Schneidewind seit Jahren die elektronische Musikszene aufwirbeln und sämtliche technische Innovationen in Sachen Musikdarbietung und -produktion alt aussehen lassen. Analoger und innovativer Wahnsinn ohne Rückbezüge oder Zitate. Elektro Guzzi sind DIE Technoband des 21. Jahrhunderts. ”

Groove Magazin (DE): “ Seit Jahren hält das Wiener Trio unserem geliebten Boing Boom Tschak den Spiegel vor. Elektro Guzzis live performter Techno kommt nicht nur ohne Presets, Loops und Computer aus, sondern darf durchaus als Essenz betrachtet werden. Weit hergeholte Assoziationen dürfen nicht überschatten, dass sich Elektro Guzzi in kaum einer Schublade wohlfühlen dürften. Das Trio zieht sein Ding rigoros durch und wir dürfen staunend zuhören. Und ja, es darf natürlich auch getanzt werden. ”

Gus Gus (ICE): “ I LOVE THIS BAND - says President Bongo. ”

Music Austria (AT): “ Man sollte mit Superlativen ja eher sparsam umgehen, aber womit das Wiener Dreiergespann seine Hörerschaft auf seinem nun erscheinenden dritten Album konfrontiert, das fällt schon stark unter die Kategorie genial. „Observatory“ erklingt trotz all der zur Anwendungen gebrachten Soundverfremdungen unglaublich organisch. ”

ORF FM4 (AT): “Observatory is an excellent album. We are giving it our full support. 5/5. "So harmonisch klangen Elektro Guzzi wohl noch nie" ”

Osunlade (BBE / Yoruba): “Really good tunes on here, such a different album from one song to the next. Choice pick: The Grist. Sentire Ascoltare (IT) Un insieme di brani che assomigliano a un party sull’orlo del sistema solare, con brandelli di ricordi sonori lontani. Una capsula del tempo di techno proiettata verso il buio più ignoto, metallico e umano al tempo stesso, un amore gridato a migliaia di chilometri da casa. ”

Radio 100.7 FM (LUX): “ Album presentation on the show. ”

SPEX (DE): “ Elektro Guzzi ist mit OBSERVATORY ihr bislang bestes Album gelungen, weil sich das Trio von der Nachahmung des Techno emanzipiert und in psychedelische Bereiche vordringt, ohne Präzision und Strenge aufzugeben. ”

SRF Virus (CH: “) Album focus throughout May: Atlas, Trojan Robot, Rough Tide, Threshold People, The Grist and more on air! ”

Textura (CDA): “ As one absorbs the recording, it becomes clear that Observatory is an excellent choice of title, given that such an entity is solidly planted on the earth whilst having its sights set by definition on the upper reaches. At its core a real-time machine-funk unit, Elektro Guzzi is captured in glorious free flight on the fifty-minute collection. ”

The Crack (UK): “ Observatory is a rich sonic tapestry: driving 4/4 grooves layered with what are most likely guitar FX plus some other unidentifiable crackly bits. You might be forgiven for thinking this lot trade on a gimmick but the result is subtle and compelling. An undeniable aural treat. ”

The Gap (AT): “ So kann sich also Techno anhören, der im Jetzt daheim ist. Alles klingt noch mehr ineinander verwoben und ist dabei so unvorhersehbar. Elektro Guzzi verzaubern vom ersten Schlag (»Rough Tide«) an und fordern trotzdem mit intelligenten Rhythmus-Strukturen und Harmonie-Wahnsinn wie auf »Acid Camouflage«. Dabei hat sich die Band weit über die Kernidee – Techno mit echten Instrumenten – entwickelt. Grooves, Sounds, Strukturen, das scheint alles besser zu sitzen, wenn es ein dermaßen gut eingespieltes Trio macht. Wenn einem wie z.B. bei »Alaska Flip« verspielte Sound-Details wie der Klang eines Pianos entgegenzischen, obwohl hier gar kein Tasteninstrument zum Einsatz kam, wird einem erst bewusst, in was für einer Liga Elektro Guzzi mittlerweile spielen. Und die ist nicht von dieser Welt – die ist ganz oben auf der Playlist. ”

unnel FM (SE): “ Trojan Robot & The Grist on air by Calin / Catastrophic show. ”

Vincent Lemieux (Mutek): “ New album! 5/5 - Can't wait to see them in Montreal. ”

Westzeit (DE): “Elektro Guzzi bleibt die geilste Technoband der Welt. ”

Wiener Zeitung (AT): “Atemberaubend!”

XLR8R (USA): “ Track premiere at XLR8R! ”

Cassegrain — “Blood Distributed As Pure Colour” on PROLOGUE MUSIC

DJ: “Blawan Really nice tracks ! love 'Hexagon Fifteen' too ! will play out. Resident Advisor (UK) Wow, this is really, really good. BBC Music - The Guardian (UK) solid package. Groove (Germany) Pretty strong release that refers to the harder and tribal-driven part of their sets Inverted Audio (UK) Spooky and hypnotic. For all the techno bravado, 'Hexagon Fifteen' is the most alluring here. Ed Davenport Killers! Marcel Fengler Another amazing trip by Cassegrain. "Blood Distributed as Pure Colour" is my pick here. Phil Kieran Awesome ! Rodhad Cool ep. I like all 3 of them. Clubbers Guide New York (USA) Wow - really great release from the guys. Love them all but 'Yokai' is my fave. Full support. ”
