Climate of Fear – Elena Colombi – Beyond The Pleasure Principle – FEAR003_1

Climate of Fear follows up Soft Boi’s debut LP with a mammoth drop: 12 tapes ripped straight from the first two years of Berlin parties. Released one per month, the series moves from Izabel’s shivering chug through Nkisi’s deadly anarcho-gabber psychedelia, Polar Inertia’s sleek techno throb and DJ Python & Mad Miran’s impromptu closing b2b.

First up is an unparalleled examination of orange-hued groove theory by Elena Colombi, taped last summer in a sweltering warehouse by the river.

Climate of Fear – NKISI – Peeling – FEAR 003_3

Climate’s third release in its tape series is a writhing hardcore masterclass from Nkisi. Recorded the same night as Elena Colombi’s entry, it offers an inverted counterpart to that set’s languid grooviness. Nkisi wrings a supple and hypnotizing atmosphere from the most astringent and defiant selections, using the 170+ bpm kick drums and scythe-like percussion to envelop the listener. Creation and destruction merge in a fluid void state. NSFW.

Climate of Fear – Bruce – Citric Acid Hydr – FEAR003_4

For the fourth installment in its twelve month tape series, Climate of Fear brings out a scorcher from the one & only Bruce. Recorded in the fall of 2019, the set shows the UK artist in unflinching form, weaving strains of UK club music with the effortless grace and power that has made him a household name. No genre is safe in Bruce’s hands. Plug in your sub. Out November 2020.

Climate of Fear – Bambounou – Guts – FEAR 003_6

Paris’ Bambounou cracks down on Climate of Fear’s sixth edition of its tape series. Recorded at Climate’s final Berlin party before lockdown, Bambounou grips turns and swerves across lanes in this high tension neo-rave workout; cutting edge technoid tracks move with a hard hitting bounce and zero body fat weightlessness. Lithe & deadly, “Guts” spills with venomous glee, tempered with expert finesse.

Climate of Fear – Karen Gwyer – Eternal Unborn Softly – FEAR 003_8

Back in February of 2019, Karen Gwyer opened Climate’s first party of the year with her DJ debut. She delivered an extended study in mesmeric collage and impossibly deep sonic foraging. Gwyer is known for her unflinchingly adventurous productions and careening, unmistakable live performances. Take a peek behind the curtain and hear some of her most personal inspirations. A love letter to the strange and otherworldly, “Eternal Unborn Softly” plays as fluidly as a half remembered dream.

Climate of Fear – Terekke – The Jasmine Isle – FEAR 003_11 – FEAR 003_11

Breeze into summer with a DJ set from the unchallenged master of blunted atmospherics: Terekke. Ripped from a riverside warehouse party in the dog days of summer 2019, Terekke dials up the soulful, expressive house moods that undergird through his ephemeral productions. Digital pianos? Check. Vocal A1’s? Check. “Let No Man Put Asunder” samples? Check. No need to strap in, this one’s a cruise.

Climate of Fear – mad miran b2b DJ Python – Waffles – FEAR 003_12

Miran and Python close out Climate of Fear’s 12 month / 12 tape series with an epic, rolling b2b. Non stop breaks exploding in full color. Too rude.

Climate of Fear – Clebs – Feed Me Gently feat Eartheater Remix – FEAR 004

For its first standalone release of 2021, Climate of Fear is proud to announce the debut album by NYC avant punk duo Clebs, aka Jason Nazary & Emilie Weibel. “Feed Me Gently” is one of those works that hits out of nowhere: a collection of songs so finely honed and unflinchingly unique it’s hard to believe this is the group’s first outing. Opening with “Negative Space,” the duo pull a deadly fakeout, with gurgling, saliva drenched musique concrète suddenly dive bombing into a ricocheting, noise-encrusted panic attack. Seasoned with trace amounts of 90’s electronica, Weibel’s atomized vocal work and Nazary’s careening drumwork set the tone for the rest of the album. “Feed Me Gently” draws its power from the tension between its snarling aggression and its eerily calm sensuality, with Weibel’s poetic incantations and choked birdsong weaving around melted synth lines, jazzy interludes and brutally deconstructed percussion. A deeply strange, fully formed soundworld, “Feed Me Gently” invites you to bask in its eerily sensual violence.

Corrosive Media – B. Ashra – Diestelman EP – CM005

B. ASHRA’s “Diestelman” is danceable for a long time with its just under 130 bpm and yet it gives off such a strange calm that it just seems weird. Very, very slowly, the 303 and percussion sounds accumulate and take you away.
This spectacle lasts 11 minutes, in which one can only be a will-less object.
Quite aloof brilliant. Askja

DUM Records – Various – Finnish Electro All-Star EP – DUM037 (repress)

Mono Junk’s cult label DUM Records is back with a new five track Various Artists EP that again packs a vital punch.  He appears himself along with some fellow legends of the scene.  First up, Morpholgy is a consistent performer who has continued to serve up quality electro since 2009 and here serves up a hot new piece. ‘Vector Plant’ is busy and industrial, slick and metallic as it unfolds and burrows deep into your veins. Then comes the A2, Irwin Berg featuring Freestyle Man (aka Finnish Moodmusic boss Sasse aka Klas Lindblad)  with a track made in 1995 and never released before. This pair worked together and made a cult electro record for  Sähkö Recordigs in 1998 and this one is just as impactful. It is frosty and frazzled, slow motion but high impact and full of distorted lines and heavy drums.  Next is Mr Velcro Fastener who were the first kings of electro to come out of Finland and between 1999 and 2006 were famous all over the world. Their brand new cut ‘Almost There’ is a deep one that is riddled with bleeping melodies  and has smeared chords bringing a sci-fi feel. Then it is Mono Junk’s turn to dive into the vaults with an unreleased  track from 2005. ‘Feeling or Destroy’ is a physical number with crashing hits and snaking, gurgling bass that is dark  and dystopian. Last of all comes Irwin Berg with Mono Junk as New York City Survivors. Says the DUM boss, “Our unreleased track here was made after the New York City Survivors – Static Light CD 2002” and it is a turbo charged track with  screwed up grinding bass, icy hi hat rhythms and menace in its grooves.

RFR – Generali Minerali / RNBWS – BETON EP – RFR016 (repress)

Cross-border wiring in the studio for the new RFR release! Russia and Georgia share their musical conscience and deliver a fine split EP for cat. no. 16. RNBWS just recently caused a sensation with new tracks on RFR, and we already know Generali Minerali from his first release for RFR X. So now it’s about to time to melt their creative spirit into a collective EP on vinyl.

Generali Minerali and his army occupy the a-side. “Generation of Mars” is musical terraforming in its purest form. Minimally crafted electro, a shot of acid and well-placed melodic patterns are the main ingredients for a magnificent opener. “Dry Water” sticks with the electro leitmotiv. Compared to the A1 we find a closer reference to the dance floor, meandering scanner sounds and a snare, that keeps slapping constantly. This is how we like it!

On the b-side RNBWS carry on where Generali Minerali and his troops had left the battlefield. “Galaxy” opens the doors to an interplanetary round dance, the place where mind and body join together in the sense of classic electro. “Nothing but Hardcore” needs no further explanation. UK hardcore in its most beautiful garments, which is so characteristic for RNBWS’ tracks. Interwoven by electro elements, who get to the heart of this EP in terms of stringency.

RFR – Jichael Mackson – Flat Moon Society EP – RFR018
Yep people, you’ve got us right. While many of us are still looking for traces of lizard people  wandering over a flat earth, your favourite producer’s favourite producer has already boarded his  space vehicle in the direction of moon, closely observing our mediocre attempts to enrich our  earthly existence. 

Magician Jichael Mackson opens his bag, presenting the signature sound he’s so famous and  respected for. Deep and bass driven grooves, perfectly layered on top of each other like damask  steel. In order to enjoy this masterpiece, we recommend to snort a big line of that “Digital Dust”. 

Family Biz” is taking a more laidback and broken beat direction. Dense percussions, intricate  harmonies and a lot of soul and jazz vibes are hidden in this gem. Best to be discovered with your  friends and loved ones on a sunny day beneath a shady tree, enjoying a couple of glasses while  waiting for the sunset. Geez, this is so damn gorgeous.  

ATH” ends this formidable EP. Again, no club inspired vibes (cos clubs are closed anyway, right?)  pulsating out Mackson’s snyths, instead a more abstract broken beat crawling into our ears. Eerie  sound modulations and creepy acid – lovers of DJ Krush’s older works might fall in love with this.

WSNWG005 – Vril & Rødhåd – Presents Out Of Place Artefacs – WSNWG005 (repress)

Strange anomalies are scattered throughout the world. Things that could not possibly belong to the time period or place in which they were found. These so called out of place artifacts baffle historians & archaeologists up until today and have inspired producers Vril & Rødhåd to write a collaborative concept album.

As a result the two producers got together in the studio with the idea to subvert the expectations of their previous work. They experimented over two sessions in 2018 and 2019, resulting in a record showcasing a different palette of sounds and tempo. 

The album is suited for deep listening and exploring aforementioned concepts or introspection in general. A mystic tone is set from the start, and grips the listener throughout the whole run time. Each track encapsulates this notion in its own unique form, blending sonic ambience and complex beats that reaches spectral heights. 

Both producer’s styles shine individually, but the collaboration achieves something greater than the sum of its parts.

WSNWG – Fadi Mohem & Rødhåd – WSNWG008 – WSNWG008

For WSNWG’s upcoming chapter, label head Rødhåd joins forces with DJ, producer and Sound Engineer Fadi Mohem.

This mesmerizing four-track EP was recorded in the magical afterglow of a jam session at Speedy J’s STOOR LAB back in April. The energy from the session is directly translated into the recording, a collection of powerful techno cuts amplified by cinematic sound design.

Forbidden Planet – DJ Loser – Illusion Hunt – FP018

Following seminal releases on Novi Svijet, Veyl and Live Adult Entertainment, DJ Loser makes his Forbidden Planet debut with “Illusion Hunt” an album of killer rave, trance and techno cuts in his signature style. 

Based in Thessaloniki, Greece, Dj Loser has had a significant impact on the international underground scene as a key figure in the modern revival of a darker, more hardcore techno sound. Unsurprisingly, his releases on Live Adult Entertainment are almost impossible to get your hands on. 

The album itself features nine tracks which range from jacking trance & techno (e.g. Bad Standard, End of Hypnosis) to hip-hop/dnb inspired cuts (Illusion Hunt) and even ethereal soundscapes (Godknights Stigma, Synethesia Symptom). 

This is a release you won’t want to miss.

Loser Records –  DJ Traytex – Back Then EP – LSR002

“DJ Traytex” showcases in his debut release with the “Back Then EP” on “Loser Records”, his skill with ambient breaks, with light, glittering melodies that trip over deep basslines and punchy rhythms. Soft, meandering cadences and flowing landscapes combine with a thumping, sometimes brittle drive in the breaks, making this EP as cerebral and emotive as it is atmospheric and danceable: just as much for the private listener, as for a dancefloor vibrating at 5am.

Strictly Strictly – Varum – Vigilance – STRICT007
Varum delivers a massive hybrid of vehemence and thoughtfulness with his six-track-release Vigilance on Strictly Strictly. Side A pushes with wild blend of trancey breakbeat escapades including a big room flavored remix by Almaty, a full series of uncompromising uplifters. Side B contrasts with forceful Electro pensiveness, accompanied with a nailing Mell G remix. High prio for vigilance!

WSNWG – Rene Wise & Rødhåd – WSNWG007 – WSNWG007 (repress)

For the most recent collaborative release curated by WSNWG, label head Rødhåd invited young, Brighton-based breakthrough producer and DJ Rene Wise to his studio for a week-long jam session in 2019. The end result is four driving, hypnotic Techno tracks with a swinging groove and 90s-inspired percussion. Made for the club, they build up tension and captivate listeners with rolling baselines, funky rhythms and mystical melodies.

Brutaż – Prarhamansah – Prarhamansah - BRUTAZLP-03

An afterimage of a free party in Carpathian forest. First, intransigent kicks and psy-vibe that does go deep enough – slowly and sharply. Then, an overwhelming softness and progression (watch out for the looong, quiet breakdown!), acid joined by an acoustic guitar that somehow works, as well as a little bit of triggering story-telling to wrap it all up.  

This is a re-master and reapplication of ultra-limited Thracian CD-R from 2003. Originialy given away in Lukovit, Lovech Province, Bulgaria. It’s a 3rd part of Brutaż expedition into the chillout zone of 90s Eastern Europe. Look out for more, maybe?

Ilian Tape – Jake Muir – Mana – ITLP10

Since he started producing music, Berlin-based American sound artist Jake Muir has been obsessed with sampling. His 2018 album “Lady’s Mantle” was based on manipulated chunks of vintage Californian surf rock, and its follow-up, 2020’s midnight symphony “The Hum Of Your Veiled Voice” was sourced from a wide variety of old records, and inspired by the work of experimental turntablists like Marina Rosenfeld, Janek Schaefer and Philip Jeck.

On “Mana”, Muir looks back to a misunderstood musical movement. Around 1995, a group of New York producers and DJs – including DJ Olive, DJ Spooky and Spectre – pioneered a genre-dissolving sound by unifying hip-hop techniques with ideas pulled from dub, jungle, ambient music and industrial noise. Badged “illbient”, it was a short-lived genre that felt like a high-minded psychedelic cousin of the UK’s trip-hop.

Muir uses illbient as the springboard for “Mana”, utilizing a selection of samples to inform his frothy drones and foreboding atmospheres. He ushers the material into 2021 by diverting it through his own contemporary worldview, attempting to recreate the hyperreal fantasy histories of Japanese RPGs (think “Dark Souls” and “Final Fantasy”) and nod to sensual, tactile soundscapes of European industrial labels Staalplaat and Soleilmoon. The result is a magickal, sensory journey that’s as physical as it is representational.

If the illbient producers were encouraging a burgeoning experimental music landscape to emphasize the tactile feeling of turntablism and sample manipulation, Muir is doing the same with “Mana”. Each track heaves and breathes not just with his cultural reference points, but with layered, complicated emotions. We can hear joy, sadness, desire and anguish, obscured by disintegrating noise, hallucinogenic harmonies and sub-aquatic bass. It’s electronic music that’s rooted not in technology, but in touch.

Vala – Kaspiann, Multicast Dynamics – VALA 1 – VALA001
The first release in Vala series is pieced together by Kaspiann and Samuel van Dijk with his Multicast Dynamics and Mohlao aliases. Characterised by melancholic melodies and ethereal pads combined with hefty rolling bass, the EP is a diverse four tracker that seeks to take its listener on a trance-like voyage to those fleeting moments of euphoria. Originating from the north, Vala is a manifestation of the profound feelings of the gloomy but wistful polar nights.
