Etch- Chemotaxis

Etch- Chemotaxis

Sneaker Social Club welcome back Etch for a four track feast of dreamy 90’s inspired but so 2017 broken beat mastery.

The fun begins with title track ‘Chemotaxis’, a dreamy hazy 136BPM Jungle joint that sounds like the soundtrack for the little man in red dancing across the Chevron floor of the red room in Twin Peaks.

‘What Lies Beyond’ is the dark mysterious twin of ‘Chemotaxis’ where the dream becomes a tense nightmare of searing 808s and horrorcore.

‘Green Park’ is our pick here, another 136BPM excursion with mentasm riffs, bleeps and a chilled backdrop pierced and prodded by a pervase sesame street break.

The EP finished on a bit of experimentation with ‘Prismatic (Etch Revision)’, a nice bit of freeform breakbeat jazzy psychedelia.

Rawtrachs- Alternative Architecture 08

Rawtrachs shares a fresh selection of experimental Bass Music ‘Alternative Architecture 08′

Starting appropriately with the Rave/Techno strands of ‘The End is the Beginning’, Rawtrachs takes for a walk on the on the different side of town. ‘Doin’ It’ reconstructs the Jungle sound into a 4×4 construct of metallic stabs, dark ambiance, bleeps and loops. ‘Noisy Dedication’ embraces the darkside with some original 93 Junglism and a touch of mid 90’s Metalheadz. ‘Pheromone’ seeks to alter your current state of mind with a trip down psychedelic proto-rave lane. ‘Warm Data’ brings the warped and wonderful beat mastery to a close with some Bristol style chilled Hip Hop. Doing it differently and doing it right!!!

Stuart King- Late Night Obsessions

Stuart King- Late Night Obsessions

Stuart King has worked with seminal acts like Sunscreem over the decades and continues to make truly timeless house music like this fabulous new LP ‘Late Night Obsessions’

Stuart King’s new album is steeped and suffused with the good feels of classic 90’s House, Prog House & Electronica. Take ‘Vision’, an exotic slice of late night melodic techno/deep house. Or the mid 90’s Garage elegance of ‘Circle of Eight.’ Or even ‘Be Free(Feat. Kinnoha)’, a hypnotising rhythm with shades of the Rising High imprint trademark sound from back in the good ol’ days.

It keeps better and better with 80’s influenced Nu Disco like ‘Waiting’ and tough tribal Robert Owens esque grooves like ‘Take Your Time.’

‘Late Night Obsessions’ is a proper long player with intro, outro and natural progression, 14 tracks of essential sound design for dancing and/or home listening.
