Jamming things up once more, we‘re pairing Chambray with long-time Figure-affiliate Truncate for a pair of exciting floor-killers, then go out with some fresh take on techno by Biri.
No Stress is exactly the reminder needed when letting things fling in all directions with this unpredictable, spiralling power work-out. Trax 4 The Club pays hommagge to the its heritage, but shoots way beyond the treaden template. Tongue-in-cheek and swinging widely, this one hits far more carefully than expected, yet all the more satisfying when it does!
On the flip it‘s Biri deploying his rigid style of layering sounds which he makes seem fluid and lively, never changing things up too soon or too late. By such his drive along the meticulously shaped arps on Snox101 stays a constant thriller, while Through The Fields becomes an ambient-leaning excursion through time and space, opening up the body and mind.

Deep, raw and real? Then NY*AK is the man! Andrew Scott has been releasing superb bottom heavy deep house groovers for many years on various top labels (like Local Talk, Paper or Ninja Tunes Technicolor). Now it’s time for Quintessentials! The A-side features „after the sun“, a deep, minimalistic and sexy groover, and „mind“, a blissfull and rich low BPM tune for an early morning come down. The B-side starts with „vice“, a proper Detroit track – bassline, strings, rims and snares - and finishes off with the funky and mellow „onions“. Deep, raw and real? NY*AK anytime!

Official re-release. Previously released on the nowadays impossible-to-get Blue Attack records, the short living sublabel of Bunker records releasing hardcore freeparty techno in the early to mid-nineties. 'T-Warp' is an archetypical track for this period: fast, subversive, dark and psychedelic. Re-mastered from the original source and pressed on a full side of 45RPM vinyl, it never sounded meaner before. Beam yourself up to the golden age when, while mainstream techno was turning into its capitalistic opposite, the truly free were kicking it in the dirt. It's time again.
