Aeons ago, mysterious cryptic transmissions were sent from Alpha Cutauri. A team of subversive cyantists from Leipzig were finally able to decipher a new chapter onto polyvinyl chloride.
Examiner LUI came up with rave-o-lutionary methods which have been executed at the low frequency laboratory of doctor Demegy. Finally a secret gold dust ingredient was added to the audio code and it was pressed successfully as the tenth disc on LXC's record label. Flying high at the top spot for such high resolution sound objects.
It is proudly released to the public under the name of Raumwerk EP, holding various uptempo BPM while keeping up sparseness and depth. Some pieces are served straight to the point with pure Drum'n'Bass, others are spiced up with Autonomic cheese flavour one simply can't resist.
Klaustrophon opens wilful and vivid by diving deep into the imaginary space version of a syncopathic Mariana Trench, exploring jittering light beams of plasma clouds inside the frontal lobe.
Stolpergeist spins a yarn about a dramatically failed experimental lifeform, half liquid, half solid rock. Slurp by slurp it was able to escape and still slumps its way through the jellaxy slipping happily even after.
Flächenromantik was field-recorded on a slow-motion moon witnessing solar flares of an innumerable multi-sun solar system. Every bar holds one warm and light autonomic sunset, really romantic synth pads, fluffy bass and a beat like Swiss clockwork, so that every click turns into a microfunky eclipse.
Synthoskop is an astronomic showdown on a stone-cold paddock pond. A fascinating piece documenting the skweeekings during impassioned mating of three Cutaurian Gurglers.

Alphacut Records reloads its third wave with an upfront jungle plate. Meticulously selected over the years since the last allover amen statement Fundamentals EP as of cat.nr. ACR 3001, these four new killer tunes take no prisoners as well.
Sumone (with his Planet Mu fame) and Dan Miles (formerly Skubi like on Modern Ruins) as the midwest cowboys meet the North Sea sailors Istari Lasterfahrer (running his Sozialistischer Plattenbau) and Ill_K (on Nord and re:st) to execute this smashing Darka Mentors EP!
"Wicked Man Sound" is one of the most sinister jungle sciences we came across lately. Choppage on point, layers like spread, stabbing basses, dark percussion, oldskool pads - you name it. "Crash!" feels like a UK hardcore banger, but is refreshingly switching breakbeats instead of gabba kicks. "Echo Chamber" drops an irresitable rave stab into the dubber dungeons and "Kuro" celebrates a very samurai style of a halftime cut to round up this breaksfest menue with ease.
Alphacut operates on a non-profit level, most releases cover their costs, if even. Half of any returns will be donated to Webster's Amen Break Gesture campaign II raising funds for the original creator of The Winston's Amen Brother breakbeat: Richard Spencer. With the deepest respect for this milestone of a sample!
