Press Info:
As the name suggests, the Destructive EP by Static Plate is not for the faint-hearted. Firestarted from the very first track, Destructive sets the pace for this hard-hitting and relentless ep. Although staying true to his signature high-hat, Static Plate re-specifies his personal style with a distinctively different drive than found in his Count Zero project. Intense, fast and at times loud, Destructive finds Static Plate at his best in his comfort zone.

Joachim Spieth

 

Title:
Under The City

Affin Records

 

Cat#:

Tracklist:
01)
Under The City

02)
Under The City
(Rolando Remix)

03)
Under The City
(Reggy van Oers Remix)

 

Press Info:
A distinctive feature of Joachim Spieth’s music is the way how he’s using filters. After “Sensualized” and “Dark Matter” 12”s, “Under The City” witnesses this again. With just a few sounds he’s shaping an environment that is triggering the listeners perception. The remixes from Rolando (Underground Resistance, Roland Rocha Records, Ostgut Ton) and Reggy van Oers (Affin, Green Records) are completing this timeless release on Affin.

The first track on Side A, ‘Under The City’ is an original produced by Joachim that steadily builds into a driving melody. The rhythm is catchy and infectious and made for the dancefloor. Waning deliberately, ‘Under The City’ delicately tapers off to only find itself strengthen again into something even more fierce.

On Side B we find remixes by Rolando and Reggy Van Oers. Rolando gives ‘Under The City’ a minimal feel at first and then unwaveringly creates anticipation for the next chord. Well-known for his Ostgut Ton sound, Rolando keeps ‘Under The City’ groovy and melodious and adds more of an underground touch straight out of Germany. Reggy van Oers finishes off this 12” with a remix that gradually accelerates mixing in various elements to bring the EP to a climax.

‘Under The City’ has all the right fluctuation to be played in a variety of situations and circumstances. Whether to be played at peak hours to a large crowd or to close out or open the night, ‘Under The City’ is a very diverse and eclectic EP that can satisfy a wide range of Techno connoisseurs.

Press Info:
PLASTIKMAN has announced details of a new EP, EX Club Mixes, out digitally on 26 January, with a 12” release following on 30 March 2015.

EX Club EP follows the release of EX, Plastikman’s first album since 2003’s Closer, and sees tracks from EX remixed by some of the most distinguished producers out there. ‘EXhale’ is reworked by Berlin based producer and Resident Advisor’s Top DJ of 2014 Dixon, while German producer and DJ Recondite – voted Resident Advisor’s Top Live Act of 2014 – takes on ‘EXplore’, Tale Of Us aka Karm & Matteo Milleri, who were recently awarded #2 in Resident Advisor’s Top DJs of 2014, remix ‘EXpand’ and Grammy-winning Dubfire remixes ‘EXposed’.

Both Dixon and Recondite’s remixes premiered at Richie Hawtin’s ENTER. in Ibiza to a huge response. Listen for yourself to Dixon’s remix of EXposed below.

Richie Hawtin is many things – an extraordinary DJ, creator of the ENTER. experience, mastermind behind the M_NUS label, technological innovator, art aficionado – in 2011 he collaborated with British sculptor Anish Kapoor for an installation in Paris. Before this, though, and perhaps most famously of all, he was and is Plastikman, an electronic music phenomenon whose followers are legion and fanatic.

Between 1993 and 2003, Plastikman created an astonishing body of work, one that didn’t so much define a time and place as explode them, expanding the dimensions of Detroit techno and redefining the possibilities of electronic dance music. Across six albums (Sheet One, Musik, Recycled Plastik, Consumed, Artifakts (B.C.), and Closer) and numerous singles such as ‘Spastik’, ‘Plastique’, and ‘Sickness’, Plastikman evolved into one of contemporary electronic music’s most distinctive voices: minimalist, psychedelic, seriously groove-laden, and ever mindful of the transcendent properties of electronica.

Since the initial performance of latest album EX at the Guggenheim Museum, NY, in 2013 at the invitation of Raf Simons of Dior, Plastikman then went on to present the show at Sónar festival in Barcelona in the summer of 2014 and releases EX Club Mixes on 26 January (digital) / 30 March 2015 (vinyl).

Press Info:
The debut album by Synthek & Audiolouis can be seen like a precious gathering of different approaches to Techno, made in order to create a meaningful and elaborate piece of work. The opening tracks Miasma and Intro:spection are just a glimpse into the atmospheres which costantly surround the whole album. Strong rhythmics and overwhelming soundscapes never abandon the ears, modulating intensity and brightness along the journey through a sea full of dark acid waves. Unwise is a bold sequence of powerful tracks devotedly written for the dancefloor, but still keeps a certain emotional aspect made of few melodic Detroit-rooted cuts, standing as a tribute to the author’s primary inspirations.
