Various – Best Of Innocent Music Vol 2

September 28, 2015 in Albums

Best Of Innocent Music Vol 2Regular readers will know I’m generally a fan of Innocent Music’s take on deep techno and minimal anyway, but with this second ‘best of’ comp the Slovenian label have excelled themselves.

There are 14 tracks in total, from a mix of names both familiar (Gaetano C, Rodrigo DP, Aney F, White Brothers) and less so – and not a duff cut in sight. Be warned, this album isn’t for the faint-hearted – listening to it in, ahem, an ‘altered’ frame of mind could seriously mess with your head and general sense of well-being! But if cavernous beats, distorted vox, twitchy snares, white noise, industrial FX, dystopian soundscapes and an overall air of brooding menace and paranoia sound like your idea of a good time, then step right on in, because if you like it deep, dark and techy you’re gonna love this…

Franko Lopez & Marius K – Do You Get

June 19, 2013 in Singles

Franko Lopez & Marius K Do You Get Yulia RecordsA change of musical tack now as we head off into deep techno/minimal territory in the company of messrs Lopez & K.

What do you get? You get three mixes of Do You Get, plus bonus cut Visionary Loop. In its original form, Do You Get is a sparse n’ dubby affair with a looping “bass” vocal sample plus snatches of other spoken vocal samples weaving in and out of the mix, all underpinned by simple, no-nonsense kicks. A remix from Gab McFly & Teets goes for a more complex, layered, techno approach, while Proudly People maintain the sparse vibe of the Original on their mix but add some moody atmospherics. Visionary Loop, meanwhile, is another stripped-down, midtempo workout made for 5am dancefloors.

A broody, paranoid red-eyed delight, for those that dig that kinda thing!

Out: This week
