After fifteen solid releases, breakthrough label Items & Things has a proven record of speed and precision in their ability to charge into the cutting edge electronic music market. Variables, the first collective compilation is full of fresh tracks bearing unique and funky musical traits unearthing the producers' personalities. This is one of my favourites from from the label owning Trio.
Pure Visions – Michael Nielebock
Apparently this track came after Range Rover celebrated it's new Evoque model by creating a special contest for music producers. Treibstoff founder Marcel Janovsky and Gabriel Ananda were invited as jurors for the event. Michael Nielebock of Berlin was the chosen winner with his track titled "Pure Vision". Techno in the 4×4 Wilderness?
Pumpin Lemma – Two EM
Snorky beats here and crunchy drums there, melodies are driven by a deep minimal bassline with an industrial apocalyptic atmosphere. It could only be the German touch to create an electronic obscurity like this.
This is a 80 minute live set from Max Cooper which was designed for Dour Festival in Belgium. There is an abundance of new productions which are yet to be released, including the first preview of the Michael Nyman edit and his next EP on Bodzin's Herzblut label. This mix is a technical soundscape which wanders across different structured atmospheres.
"A 90 minute journey through the dark techno tinged sounds of house, twisted bare grooves, emersive clicks & clacks and scattering snares worked over driving tribal rhythms. After months of careful crafting, the mix delves into and out of underground recognition whilst showcasing an essential selection of collaborations between electronic musics most esteemed artists."
