New Electro/Techno 12"s Coming This Weekend:

Cinderella Ltd
EPHEMERIS EP 12"
ARPIAR006

Fresh off the label headed by RARESH and RHADOO comes this techno chugger EP. The first track hits like a techno track, but is mellowed by an almost lullaby in the background. On the flip is a loopy house cut, begging to be toyed with and layered...a groover!    


Kenny Larkin

SKETCHES EP-SHLOMI ABER 12"
BAO018

KENNY & SHLOMI ABER both drop a mix of "SKETCHES." KENNY's is pure techno, with amazing drum progressions and a hypnotic lead that spans 10 minutes of funk. ABER's version is tougher with a phat bassline, a jazzy rhythm, and a snare infused shuffle.

The first single to be lifted from their album INSITUTE OF JOY, this is a groovy indie meets leftfield dance EP with a strong vocal from ZEBEN and two remixes (in addition to the original) from NY's HOUSE OF HOUSE and WAY OF ANCIENTS (aka THOMAS BULLOCK of MAP OF AFRICA, RUB-N-TUG).

Andrew Meecham
is The Emperor Machine, one of the best producers working in electronic music at the moment. A soundclash between influences as diverse as Can, early Human League, Hawkwind, George Clinton and Kraftwerk, Meecham's Krautrock-Disco bubbles and squeaks with analogue rock intensity while remaning funky enough to get your groove on.

Meecham started out in seminal 90's house/rave group Bizarre Inc. alongside Carl Tuner and Dean Meredith. They had a string of hits including "Playing With Knives" and "I'm Gonna Get You", both of which charted in the UK (the former hit #3, the latter #4) as well as the US (#47), and both are considered "club classics".

"Playing With Knives":


"I'm Gonna Get You" (one of my personal favorites):



After their second album, 1996's Surprise, was commercially disappointing, Bizarre Inc. disappeared until 1999, when Meredith and Meecham resurfaced with Steve "Fella" Kotey as Chicken Lips. Since then, it's been full steam ahead, with the boys finding a home at DC Recordings (scheduled to have its own Technophilia post anytime soon) as Big Two Hundred, aka "the dark side of Chicken Lips", and two side projects: Meredith as White Light Circus and Meecham as TEM.
