Holger Czukay
Let’s Get Cool
Claremont 56

CAN's HOLGER CZUKAY releases this 2 track 10" with tracks based on "COOL IN THE POOL," recorded in his home studio in 1979. Quirky with a touch of free jazz horn work. Pressed as a strictly limited 10" on transparent vinyl.













Conforce
Black Stroke EP
Modelisme

The original is a hymnic Detroit-ish tune with a swingy groove and the right strings. KINK & NEVILLE WATSON work out an old school acid house mix in the Chicago vein, and "PRETTY FAR FROM HERE" closes out the record with old school deep funky sounds that are raw.













A Made Up Sound
Alarm
A Made Up Sound

A MADE UP SOUND brings 2 tracks of bangin' beats! "ALARM" is a punchy tune with synth stabs, moody pads and a swaggering rhythm. "CRISIS" on the flip is all about restraint. Thick house-not-house beats and a thumping acid bassline. This is a killer 12".

Listen to "Crisis" here:

Wolfgang Voigt
Freiland Klaviermusik
Kompakt

Wolfgang Voigt returns to stranj for his left-of-center Kompakt label offshoot, Profan. As GAS, Voigt composed ethereal, blue-hued, deep-forest metaphysical techno 'head music', but now under his own name he injects the dance floor with a dose of well tempered madness. If you like your techno birthed out of a slightly crooked disposition, thought provoking and borderline psychotic, please check this out.












Ellen Allien
Dust
BPitch Corp

Berlin's first lady of techno drops a solid release for 2010. Her trademark razor-sharp spooky production is complete with bleeps n bells, throbbing bass house, squidgy electro tech-pop, and even what could be taken as an homage to the Exorcist theme.











Ichisan and Nakova
Yugo Tempo
Nang

Between them, duo Ichisan & Nakova have toured the cream of the new disco stables with releases on Nang, Eskimo and Airtight. They present their debut album together for Nang, collecting thirteen Balkan disco grooves spiked with sparkling spacewise synths, cosmic guitar licks and dubbed basslines for the connoisseurs. Fans of Lindstrom, Ilija Rudman or Todd Terje should have a peek.

KIRK DEGIORGIO
Membrane 12"
Planet E

"1990 was the decade Kirk established healthy roots with the network trio of Detroit producers: Derrick May, Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson. In preparation for Kirk's most influential journey to the US, he collaborated demos with Ed Handley and Andy Turner under the collective The Black Dog. During his inspirational visit to Detroit, Kirk took notice of the affordable studio setups he observed at Transmat, Metroplex and KMS. Consequently Kirk sold his entire record collection upon his return to London and invested in an Atari, Akai S950 sampler, a broken TB303 and a Roland R8 drum machine. To complete his Detroit-inspired studio, the last pieces were actually loaned from Derrick -- including a Kawai K3 and the infamous DX100. Fast forward to the more present time and Kirk has released purist techno EPs for an EMI subsidiary New Religion. For the same label he has collaborated with Dan Keeling under the name Critical Phase and together with Alex Bond has also coordinated the joint ART-New Religion compilation The Electric Institute. On this compilation Kirk shocked purists with the techno breaks track 'Whatever Happened To The Cosmic Kid,' which was co-written with Dan Keeling and Chris Martin of Coldplay. Kirk's revolutionary pulse has been recognized and is credited with being the first known professional DJ to use Ableton Live alongside vinyl for his DJ sets. A tour of Japan 2002 saw him use Live exclusively which he has now done ever since in venues worldwide. Kirk paved the way for the current popularity of laptop DJing."
