A1 Chasing Away The Night
“The second of two new Gesloten Cirkel releases for Murder Capital following his 2014 album for the label, Submit X. ‘Charning’ is a deranged acid cut with unexpected rock undertones, ‘Perron’ is a warehouse-ready dance track, and ‘Chasing Away The Light’ is a very fun club number.”
“…It’s called ‘Djazirat El Maghreb’ and it’s a tribute to North Africa and its three countries, Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. First track is called ‘Mogador’, the old name for famous port city Essaouira in Morocco. A 6/8 rhythm, increased with traditional krakebs percussions, leads the dancers to trance, while the trance of electronics grows imperceptibly bigger and bigger. On b-side, track one is called ‘Hafla’, which means ‘party’ in arabic. It features an old algerian rhythm called Alaoui, used in dance parties but as well in Chaabi music. It also features Acid Arab keyboard player Kenzi Bourras on fire on a couple of solos. ‘Amal‘ is an homage to tunisian percussions and traditional mezwed, a word that designs an arabic pipe but also a style of music that you can hear all over the country. For this song the iranian musician Saeid Shanbehzadeh offered great notes of neyanbān, which is another version of the bagpipe. All songs have been recorded in Shelter Studio, Paris, by Acid Arab (Nicolas Borne, Pierrot Casanova, Hervé Carvalho & Guido Minisky) and their guests.”

In the place of the eternal blazing sun there exists an underworld, a dark and cold space of interlinking caves and dank corridors. Occupying the subterranean land is an army of worker drones, busying themselves with a never ending series of tasks, both laborious and mechanical. Once a task is completed, a report is filed and then sent to the Gatekeeper. The owner of the keys is the one they call Cardopusher, cruel and unrelentless. Sitting atop his throne of screws and iron, he patiently waits as his minions build the weapons he seeks to finally overthrow and conquer the people of the overground. ZGEMI is the sixth of 12 releases. One for each sign of the stars and then Z O D I A C 4 4 is forever dead and gone. Forever.
Rude 66 does not need an introduction… This Dutch acid and electro veteran has been around for a long time. Being part of the old school acid scene from The Hague with releases on legendary label Acid Planet and he is one of the originals (again) when it comes to the new wave of electro in the late 1990’s. Two vocals tracks on the A-side with Beta Evers and Sololust appearing as partners in crime, and on the B-side two instrumental almost trance like tracks. This is were electro, acid and a touch of old school gothic come together!

Gesloten Cirkel is back on Murder Capital! Is he the mysterious Russian producer he claims to be or in fact I-f, or someone else? Let’s not speculate and focus on the music, shall we… First track “The Real Melbourne House” seemingly references down under, and is it a whimsical, albeit, cheeky one to the city’s flourishing deep house circuit, we’ll probably never know. “Acid Stakan” once more riffs on the Humanoid sound of “Stakker” with haunting John Carpenter strings, it’s the real highlight here. On the flip is “Never”, a 14-minute-long epic of dark, slow burning and mysterious 303s.
Darkside electro and ripper acidic techno
Shady P contributes the gloriously fucked-up “X Is Whole.” Marshall Applewhite drops a total acid banger with “Prostrate,” and The Friend throws down the skewed acid tech of “How R U.” Glasgow’s Gregor Garnutsi (Upstanding Monk) changes up the vibe with the creepy electronica of “Access Granted” and France’s Orphan Swords bring a killer mix of noise and techno with “Astaroth.”
Daze follows up his seminal ‘Lips’ white label with a huge three-track EP for the core Lobster Theremin label. Traversing a bastardised series of themes that sees Jersey house blended with overdriven rave, tinker-toy acid lines slicing through shrouded doom techno and chattering hip-hop loops rolling over classic breakbeat house.
The A-side is dominated by the epic 9:09 minutes long ‘Neuromance’ titles track. A gritty, cyberpunk-edged number that pumps along with a staggered Jersey-style swing and rattling hats, it takes less than a minute for Daze to break the spell and bring in those serene 90’s floating pads that so marked out his debut. A hammering ode to the early hours extended jam and a coming-up anthem for 2015.
The flip is shared by a pair of opposing moods.. ‘Death Whirl’ is pretty much exactly that. A circling drone hovering ominously over some seriously groove-battered drum programming. this could easily have been carved out as a lone drum tool but the ante’s upped with a heavily gated acid line that plinks and plonks it’s way over the insatiable percussive beating.
B2 ‘Compton’ was an early contender for the Lips release, but was repositioned here as to not “over-breakbeat” the first 12″! A steady, lazy, woozy afternoon in the sun, looping into euphoria with guests acid skits, face-warming pads and that never ending breakbeat repeat.
“Power Vacuum bag a sack of spannered acid madness from Cylob. The perennial outsider loved for classics on Rephlex mercifully hasn’t mellowed with age, twatting out seven trax of wonky techno discord (‘Concrete Corporal’), hyper drill ‘n bass (Granular Psychosis [Ect Mix]’), superb EBM braindance (‘Rosetta’), and psy-NRG (‘Missions to Mercury’), with a dose of IDM chamber ambience in ‘Zattrday’.”
Golden Pudel resident Helena Hauff teams up with the mighty Andreas Gehm for a split ACID record par excellance. 303303303303303303303303303 all the way!!! you know the game!!! comes on ACID YELLOW vinyl. Re-press!!!
The more fanatical Frak fans out there will already be well aware of this latest release on Borft which sees group member Johan Sturesson donning his Kord guise for a quite excellent mini album of haywire electronics. Absence Of Fear is his first solo release on Borft since 1998 (!) though there was a 7″ issued through sub label Djuring Phonogram back in 2007, and is ripe with bleep laden electro and techno that benefits from the mastering skills of Andreas Tilliander and Jan Svensson. Across the six tracks Sturesson veers through moments of contemplation, abstraction and outright dancefloor brilliance with “Trainwreck” and “In Absence” cuts the more adventurous selectors will cherish.
