Review

After Releases on Jeff Mills’ Axis sublabel Mission as Counterpart and amazing EPs on Figure, run by Len Faki or Audiosculpture and Outland Records, these two guys from the Netherlands are not a secret weapon any more: Dimi Angélis & Jeroen Search. Sending greetings to Robert Hood, Smallville explores deep looptechno with this three highly kicking Tracks. Dimi & Jeroen are smartly driving the dancefloors with this perfect EP: a serious hit on the A Side, B1 as a powerful tool and an ultradeep Technotune with a touch of House for B2.

SMALLVILLE11 in the media

2000 and one (Intacto): “nice ep. i am into the ratio b2 track. nice trippy loopy tool track. full on!!!”

Adultnapper (Audiomatique/ Mul: “#1 November Charts ”

Craig Richards (Fabric): “I played this at the weekend. The retro feel is so refreshing. Excellent release. If only there was more simple tracks like this. ”

Dj Deep (Deeply Rooted): “Excellent Techno ! A bit of an old school vibe to it, i can hear the Jeff Mills inspiration but i like all tracks and will play !”

DJ-Mag: “Having released on one of Jeff Mills's sub-labels, it comes as no surprise that this Dutch duo are inspired by Detroit techno and in particular its propensity for repetition. Lead track 'Induction' is an acid-flecked minimal track, as hypnotic as Hood, but less frenetic and more house-based. 'Omnia' and 'Ratio' are just as tracky, but the intricate percussion, subtle 303 licks and eerie undercurrents make this release stand out from all the other Detroit-influenced releases.”

Efdemin: “This is a big one. Got it from Smallville in Summer and played the massive A-side in the closing-set of Sonar this year and after that in many of my sets. What a beatiful, pumping techno-loop-track. Just now I discovered B2 as one of my new favourites. Will need a new copy soon...”

Joel Mull (Audiomatique):: “"great ep, will play"”

Karotte (CocoonGreat Stuff): “wow. wieder mal was ganz anderes auf smallville. großartige tracks. werden geliebt.”

Sebo K (Mobilee): “nice one! will play.”

Shinedoe (Intacto): “B1 nice acid tool track!”

Steffi (Klackson/ Panorama Bar: “"will play, full support!"”

Steve Bug: “Best Of 2008 #10 !!”

Steve Rachmad (Music Man/ NL):: “"full support!"”

Tsugi Mag (France): “Le label de Hambourg poursuit ses expérimentations deep techno minimale et convoque deux vétérans de la scène hollandaise. Aperçus sur Figure, Outland ou Mission, ces derniers sont de retour avec trois titres de minimale à l’américaine. Les fans de Robert Hood devraient apprécier.”

Woody (Fumakilla): “yes, great!! straight in my case!”
