ULYSSES
Gibson In E/Love Hangover 12"
Internasjonal

Elliot is Ulysses, also known as half of Neurotic Drum Band together with John Selway on Wurst or as debuted for Internasjonal Spesial, Filipsson & Ulysses (together with Holmar Filipsson). "Gibson In E" played on Beats In Space radio in March 2010 to much positive feedback. Lovely Kraut-y doodlings on a spaceship. For the B-side, we're treated you to Ulysses' personal rendition of Diana Ross ballad-goes-disco classic "Love Hangover."



REEL BY REAL
20 Years Surkit Part A/B 12"
A.r.t.less

A.r.t.less presents a retrospective by Detroit techno veteran Martin Bonds aka Reel By Real in two parts. Some of these tracks are now seeing a proper release for the first time, due to the fact that they had been only released as a limited white-label on Interface Records in 1990 and 1991. This first 12" is packaged in a limited handmade artwork cover to house both records. All tracks restored by Don Williams and remastered by Redshape.

Listen to "Surkin" here:

ROBAG WRUHME: Lampetee 12"
(MOVIDA 001EP)
Movida is Spanish and is the English word for 'moving.' With this first release we have moved something -- nobody else than Mr. Robag Wruhme (Wighnomy Brothers) has produced this first one. This track is really untypical for any production which Gabor ever did, but we liked that 'dubby' track so much that we really wanted to release it. Maybe the one or other will think back to good old Maurizio tracks. 'Lampetee' is a very old Greek 'song' with a pretty nice song-text which Gabor packed in that track with so many emotions. We were also happy as we get the 'o.k.' from nobody else than Nick Curly to do a remix for us. It has taken a long time, but finally the remix is so lovely, deep and groovy that we think it was good choice to wait so long. Support: Ricardo Villalobos, Onur Özer, Shinedoe, Thomas Melchior, Brendon Moeller, Matt Star, Daniel Mehlhart, Nick Curly, Frank Leicher.


BETKE: The Road/Loose And Blowsy Plumage 12”

DUSTY KID: Moto Perpetuo 12" (BOXER 075EP)

AGF/DELAY: Connection Remixes 12" (BPC 203EP)

DUB TRACTOR: Sorry LP (CCO 045LP)

KZA: Z 12" (EF 019EP)

Delano Smith
MIDNITE EP 12"
(3EEP107)
"A SPECIAL KIND" is classically constructed with filtered ASHFORD & SIMPSON samples ("STAY FREE") over a fat Detroit kick drum. "DEE'S GRUV" is on the atmospheric tip, "EXPLANATION" hits harder and faster, and deep house jam "TRUTH" wraps it all in one tight package. Don't sleep!

BUTANE
Endless Forms
Crosstown Rebels

This is the debut full-length release by Berlin by-way-of Saint Louis Alphahouse label-head, Andrew Rasse, aka Butane. Endless Forms is the future of electronic music, exploring fresh directions and true experiments in sound, heralding the arrival of one of the more pioneering artists of our times. The title is a homage to Darwin, the true master of progress, and the discoverer of evolution. Butane took inspiration from Darwin's concepts, considering "all the complexity that surrounds us has developed from ultimate simplicity." Working from this notion, Butane has created a project that holds the beauty of simplicity, yet listen carefully, and you can hear the intricacy of its craftsmanship. "This Is Your Brain On Music" takes a sample from Daniel Levitin, a neuroscientist/musician, talking about his book and encapsulating the message of the album -- "that scientific and philosophic inquiry into the nature of things leads to new forms of artistic expression." Endless Forms drifts through the organic sounds of Butane's production in tracks such as "His Story" and "Mutation," each creating new patterns in the engineering of modern techno. "Transmit The Music In Me," "Almost Finished," and "Idle" further augment the atmosphere, where industrial beats encounter laid-back harmony. Taking influence from evolution, he embodies a wide musical range, encompassing anything from seamlessly-blended soul-led techno to warm, deep, cerebral house music.
