One of the things I like the most about driving techno is the projected energy onto the dancefloor and the feeling of being in the middle of something apocalyptic. For a prime example we look to none other than Driving Forces, the Austrian based Techno label from well known producer Sutter Cane. This time we come across an amazing EP from the founder himself.

Named “Alchemy EP” it contains two high calibre tracks and includes a remix by no other than the Japanese enigma A.Mochi, a huge Tokyo based producer who adds a darker twist.

The first offering called “The Alchemist” has an electric feel on the mid range that combined with a powerful, pounding kick and subtle overdriven hats, makes you move your feet right from the start. Percussive and constant semi-distorted arrangements force your mind in to a space where the bottom end starts to fade away, but just when I’m beginning to wonder how is this going to continue, a clap glued to the kick pulls my flying thoughts back to the ground where I was before. What a first track.

Transmutation” has a little more melodic touch but no less powerful at all. Keeping the pounding bottom as expected, it shows some chopped and hard worked synth rhythms that can hypnotise anyone. The arrangements work very well with a tubular percussive sound that begins to appear and disappear in the background mixing with wood sounds and cleaner hats that flow smoothly with shakers and a snare that gets in the mix from time to time.

A.Mochi has a more stripped back and hypnotic approach that gives this release a good contrast. It has a thundering bottom end as he plays with intricate details on top of a delay on the tubular sound and later the addition of a bell for an even more sinister feeling. Sweeping dark pads show their face occasionally through the murky waters as the breakdown’s vocoded snare expands and builds tension before the hellish ride continues.

This is an awesome package that will make any nightclub walls sweat, whilst also having a depth of quality behind it.

Newrhythmic Records is a León, Spain based label from Jose Angel Palacios Robles aka Joton. He recently released what appears to be the album of his life titled “Casting Out Nines” and it has garnered support from producers like Ben Sims, DVS1, Danny Tenaglia, Samuli Kemppi, Pfirter, Joseph Capriati, just to name a few. I decided to have a deeper look into some of the tracks…

Two single notes looping with an amazing delay are the first sounds to appear, and while astute filtering down introduces the beat for “Gray Matter.” The shots that perform as a pad shortly in, welcome the expected kick. Compact bass notes set the groove and wasting no time the track is already rocking. Ride shakes immediately, awakening the beeping melody and… lift off!!! Voice stabs with different top combinations deliver space for the melody to work with the ongoing loopy pad that expands at length. I really like this constant and euphoric tune.

Spawn a broken beat and claps drawn in it, “Quantum Algorithm” is a bit more of a dramatic journey. A dynamic pad widens up the space and repeated short synths set the groove with intelligence, the top consists of a steady ride while a mid shaker gets in the mix too. Synths conduct the way toward the break and the pad that becomes an enjoyable chainsaw massacre takes over the track, what an outstanding finale.

Clean Skin” maintains the minimalistic approach, but promptly expanding hats welcome the melody, in this case resembling a train passing by. A kindly distorted alarm responds in the mids, achieving new levels of consciousness, the constant hats rolling on top conceive and incredible dynamic pace, that quickly boost the dance floor. While the angry melody screams, groovy percussion controls the beat from the beginning making this track one of my favorites of the package.

Best described by its name, “Hidden Pulse” has an intermittent low tom between kicks that works great, delayed notes from an organ synth massage my brain with elasticity and the incoming hat has an interesting echo toward the right side also. The melody on the mid range makes the most impact on this one with a delayed pulse response with a kind of shimmering tail. A short breakdown alters the release on the melody notes… intensifying the feeling and let’s the huge kick breathe and sound thunderous. Clearly there is a bright mind behind this production trying new ideas.

I much more mellow vibe from this next one. Well-adjusted rotating pads with clean clicks set a wonderful ambience and developing low frequency notes from the bassline excites the easy listening break-beat. “Metabolize” is a fresh vacation, where shakers contribute to the picture and filtered closed hats appear here and there for highlights. The breakdown is about pads which have a feeling of being alone in the dark and very atmospheric. The beat draws you back into the groove, this time with extra panning on the now developed notes from the synth. It sounds so smooth from start to finish.

After several years, Joton has managed to include a well studied variety of his work in this album, travelling through ups and downs, highs and lows, we found a well-organized and creative package which demonstrates his unique talent and a true pleasure to listen too.

The Amsterdam based producer named Doka just released his most recent work “Ask” on Wolfskuil Records and it’s pretty cool stuff.

One of the features in Doka’s productions is the creativeness and this release is no exception. A title track and two remixes from Spanish artists NX1 and Aiken make this release three high quality options.

The original mix has a thick and throbbing kick which makes you feel its power instantly, repetitive driving notes from filtered synths deliver the melody, which expand with stereo trails. Holding a rotating and very strident hat, claps appear in tandem to introduce the breakdown which is the wider part of the melody. The kick drops shortly after that, filtering down the synths and bringing back the euphoric rhythm. There is a depth of textures in the track, with bleeps programming my brain as binary code, which persist until the end.

NX1 has a more accelerated approach, with bouncing drums revealed by the kick and accenting sub sweeps create a great vibe. Metallic, windswept atmospherics appear and gradual, fading reverberated claps join in for a temporary breather in the beat before going full throttle again. The delightful skirl which remains in my head resembles a cricket of the night, that carries the ride forward as the sounds continue to morph with a strong old school tribal feel.

Going for a more energetic style here, Aiken adds a stripped back feel at the same time, with metallic sounds and huge swelling bass under the compact kick and quirky glassy rolls show a cool character. Phased organ notes shoot through the mix towards the half way point in the track, which are totally unexpected, but work really well as sounds slowly fall away and it becomes the dominant solo feature. As it soothes and captivates, a sudden switch back to the original arrangement drops and contrasts, but with added claps this time.

Each track very much of their own accord and special tools as and when you require them in a set.

DT:Premiere | C-System – T1 [MFM Records]

MFM002



We have an absolute firecracker for this DT:Premiere from exciting Spanish artist C-System, owner of MFM Records and co-owner of Morforecs alongside Horacio Cruz. Resident DJ at the Industrial COPERA in his hometown of Granada, he has played alongside legends such as Carl Cox, Dave Clarke to John Digweed.

His original track taken from the release is driving from the word go with a small subdued break before relaunching into the tectonic ride again. Throw in an electro edge with a feeling of tense chaos for a great combination that will tear any floor in two. The remix comes from the excellent Italian DJ/Producer Electrorites to round off a super single, giving a dark, powerful and atmospheric appreciation.

Released… Monday 22 June 2015

EarToGround Records new collection named “Triptology” is the most recent EP from the now Berlin based and world renowned Argentinian producer Jonas Kopp, with 5 tracks ranging from the coolest garage music to deeper waters.

STP” the first piece of this set has multiple colours, set on a four note bassline resting on a cogent kick, but only to the exact point without making it too bold, coming and going pads become dominant in the track and working from side to side. They allow short synths to occasionally see the light at a jovial rate maintaining the dynamism and complementing each other. A voice sample works as a stab and serves as an answer to melody. The top consists of closed rolling hats, which are quick to open and get replaced by a simple clap that fits just great. It is a track with steady pace that envelops you in minutes.

With a less attacky kick but much more pounding, “CE-5” is a far more dense proposal. There’s no need for a bassline, that kick is doing all the work, sat next to closed rolling hats with a machine texture, the canine stab on the mids are wet with reverb and delay giving the track everything it needs to make you travel down a darker path. Open hats and loud claps enter later and the sharp resonance they generate deliver contrast from the almost detectable bouncy lows. A nice piece to keep the floor moving.

Mental Message” is the following track, with a little more emphasis on the kick and bass bouncing from it, quickly achieving an attitude that drives it forward, plenty of playing hats, open and closed fabricate the chaotic top end on this tune. A melody made of voices crumbling with reverb that deform gradually empowering the track title. There are some drum sounds that appear from time to time dancing with hats that come and go, giving enthusiasm and wrapping the wide range of this track.

With the highest BPM, “Distance” is my favorite, a bell style synth leads in the middle and its the bass range brother that takes over my mind. The kick is definitely there stuffing the low end in a 1-2, 1-2 pattern simulating the movement of the speakers and hitting the chest of the listener. There is a grainy noise that leaves the kick rest, balancing perfectly with the closed hats and vocoder texture. Rolling open hats appear later on and serve as an excuse for the clap. Definitivamente this track has great vibe on any dj set.

To close this trip we have Digital Exclusive “Tibi Jam” the most experimental track on here. It comprises of a synth with an acid touch as it goes from an acute point and dives to low bounces that merge with a distant kick encompassing all space. Delayed hat stabs lead the way for the ride to drop and mixed with shorter hats, establishes the rhythm. Reverberant claps and impatient noises are the give and take that is repeated till the end.

Clearly Jonas knows what works, whilst getting creative under the “hood” so to speak, introducing exciting and distinct details.
