Bubble Club
The Goddess
International Feel

Bubble Club is Dan Keeling. While leaving Island last year to set up a new record label, he recorded and launched the Bubble Club project and released 3 singles, including the lauded Violet Morning Moon. The Goddess is his first single for International Feel and continues his journey into deep space production, beautiful, uplifting melodies and chunky beats. Backed by an oh-so deep and mesmerizing rework from Quiet Village.

Komaton
Sweet Princess
Pro-Tez

Komaton now joins the Pro-Tez family. "Sweet Princess" is a bass-bin filling, dancefloor-destroying track from the hottest Austrian export since Arnold Schwarzenegger. The A-side has the original version that deeply pulsates through some lonely piano with noise fractals and druggy vocals. A2 follows with a sublime aural dub version by Bvoice & Khz. SCSI-9's remix has the power to fill the room with sound in a way that only Pro-Tez releases do. A must-have!

MORITZ VON OSWALD TRIO
Vertical Ascent CD
Honest Jon's

This is the highly-anticipated debut full-length release by The Moritz von Oswald Trio, comprised of members Moritz von Oswald (Basic Channel, Rhythm & Sound), Max Loderbauer (NSI, Sun Electric), and Vladislav Delay (Luomo). Through Basic Channel and Rhythm And Sound -- his collaborations with Mark Ernestus -- Moritz von Oswald first of all conjured from thin air, then comprehensively mapped out the grounds of a deep exchange between real-deal Jamaican dub and classic, Detroit-style techno. The duo's accomplishment and influence are immense. The repercussions of their work within electronic dance music have been incalculable. Though a departure, Vertical Ascent retraces various signatures of the earlier styles -- the fastidious density of sound, the massive bass and detailed upper registers ("a frequency massage," Ricardo Villalobos has called the album), the stripped, stepping repetitiousness, the seriousness. The striking differences stem from the qualities of live performance (the driving, clattering percussion in particular, and the loose, improvisatory approach), the exploded palette of sounds, including a trace of steel drums, something like a cuica -- and of course, most of all -- the fresh line-up. Vladislav Delay is a drummer and electronic musician from Finland -- like von Oswald, trained in classical percussion (while the third member studied classical piano for 20 years) -- who released a landmark album on Basic Channel's Chain Reaction imprint, before working with a diversity of artists (under pseudonyms like Luomo and Sistol), from Massive Attack to the Scissor Sisters. On Vertical Ascent, he plays home-made metal percussion. From Munich, Max Loderbauer was a partner in the ambient duo Sun Electric. Behind the scenes, his work has ranged between Tresor and Can's Spoon Records. In 2004 he teamed up with Tobias Freund to form NSI (Non Standard Institut). On Vertical Ascent, he plays synthesizers, alongside von Oswald, who also contributes Fender Rhodes and additional percussion. At the heart of Vertical Ascent is a dream crossing of Basic Channel, Larry Heard and Can -- as at home with calypso as it is Stravinsky.
