Hot, hotter, hottest tunes in June looks like these…

Label- ONOFF Recording

Title- Dots Are Moving EP

Release date- 21-07-2014

ONOFF Recording is one of my favorite labels in the planet, and their release ”Dots Are Moving”- Sloo is just about super underground fare. The title track has able remixes by the likes of Fernando Guzman, Variond and Mac Dephoner. But what catches my ears is the Original mix. Really make some noise for this nasty bass gore 3 a.m goodness with echoing vocals, that means only one thing…you gotta surrender to this beauty. There’s a second track ”Adeond”, by Sloo, which has a remix thrown by Stefan Naimor…but by the time I get to it, I am totally haunted by the first tune and I keep going back to it. Tops!!

Label- Lucidflow

Title- Nadja Lind & Friends Digital Part 1

There’s a whole loada collaboration going on, in the pack with the likes ofย  Brendon Moeller, Omar Salgado, Vandermeer and Quintin Christian doing their bit. Tracks included- ”Street Beat”, ”Place of Bliss”.ย  But what gets me happy as hell, is when my ears tune in to ”Tramp Clown”- a bassy warrior with some cultured vocal pattern snaking around in a bouncy body. It’s got a dirty Tech step to it and simple ingredients with which one hits the break down. Thereafter it sorta gets going in to it’s own mind and makes you do some moves. My favorite though of the pack is ”Saharan Night”- starting off with a quiet menace, the cut throat quality of this one is astonishing. There’s a double bodied bass bubbling with a whistling pattern very very extra-ordinarily good…Pure acid!!

Label- Sudbeat

Title- Big Bang

Artist- Nocturna. Remixes- Hernan Cattaneo, Graziano Raffa, Soundexile

Release date- 16-06-2014

Not many people may know that Nocturna is a new project by Italian duo Andrea Cassino & Danny Lloyd. ”Big Bang”, is an absolute melodic Techno star. Classical chords right in place with a brooding, winding melody along side luminous pads breaking in the inside, is nothing short of relentless progression for your soul. The break down just soars out on top and just about touches memories of terracotta summer nights and breezy starry skies. The remixes have been tackled by some of the heavy weights in the current dance music scene which includes Sudbeat label boss Graziano Raffa’s work fabulously, but the original gets my thumbs up all the way…There’s a cozy, warm ”Microcosmos” tune to end the pack with, which is lovely too.

Label- Undertechnical Recordings

Title- Never Give Up

Artist- Reelow. Remixes- Gianluca Caldarelli, Marco Yanes

Release date- 10-06-2014

Flurry claps, fat bass flaring, heavy jolts of acidic swish make up for the title tune. There’s a ghostly vocal finding and eerie ripples at the back, then there’s ome steely beat prongs interjecting with nasty attitude on this one. It’s utterly captivating as ever. The Caldarelli remix is just a lot of grooving fun, the vocals get a bigger boost this time around, furnished with quite a bit of splintered sheen in the bass line. Down to the slightly subtle work of Yanes that feels like a respite, and carries a more staccato story to it’s nature. I like this pack!!

Label- 808 Recordings

Title- Lady With No Face EP

Artist- Nyah Berkley. Remix- Javier Algarra

Loving this smooth as silk EP. The label as always does such fabulous releases, it’s just as well I nod in delight at their sounds and more. And I love both the undertakings of this release with equal feverishness. ”Bolero”, Original mix has lovely fragmented passages of broken bass sound and unresolved melody in a deep way yet quite Tech-House. The Javier Algarra’s Deep House stamp, is an immediate transportation to bigger things. There’s a roiling bass line in his handiwork and a perky attitude in it’s groove sense. One also finds an infectious vocal which is catching swinging in tandem to the bouncy bends. There’s a bee like offering all going back and forth just fine with the rest of the warm bodied tune. Nice one..

Label- Bedrock Digital/ Dar

Title-Hypnoteric (LP Sampler Part 1)

Artist- Denis A

Release date- 16-06-2014

Russian born Denis A. is new to me, but boy does he make a cutting edge sweep out of this release. He expands his forging work through his DAR label that rounds up his production force. ”Moenjodaro”, is a triumphant statement of the man’s musical sensibilities. The skewered break beatish feel is just lovely to hear, the tune is a portrait of adventurous Techno that strikes a near perfect balance between melody and propulsion of bass fierceness. This ones a ear catching, dance floor fruit. On to ”Space Truck”, a steady going melody vessel reminiscent of old. The melody pattern is fumingly hypnotic and fantastic. By the break, it’s far from delicate and gets me tied up in knots…wonderful bound. ”Flashback”- starts off with a synthetic eerie feel and has bass shuddering raciness on the whole. There’s a bubbling pad that comes and goes off it’s own free will, and the body gets heavier with post punk distortion. Make no mistake though, there’s enough melody to lift you up and keep you floating around for a bit. Must have!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Title- Smash

Artist- Gabriel Ananda. Remixes- Rob Hes, Noraj Cue & Mark Mywords

And saving the best for last, this track is gob-smackingly yummy, wondrous underground steam. Easily the mother of all Techno tunes in sometime now. This rework hasn’t been released, with no plans for it either. To deconstruct this one in words is difficult, yet I gotta say the minute the bass hits your ears, I challenge anyone except the disco mummies to stand still. The synth pattern along with the toughness in the core bass is just too blinding and fierce. The break down introduces a haunting beauteous melody winding up with shattering jars for aural love. Can’t get enough of this huge choon!!
