Zander VT ~ Dig Your Own Rave

22 11 2009

bpcanother label celebrating a 10th anniversary this Fall is Ellen Allien’s BPitch Control in Germany. BPC releases records by several powerhouse producers but Zander VT is new to me, thanks to the 10 Years sampler that has been in heavy rotation the last couple of weeks. there’s something very old school house about this which is highly appealing to me lately..

Jake Fairley ~ Shapes

16 11 2009

10 years senderGerman label Sender marked their tenth anniversary a few weeks back with the release of a killer compilation from beginning to end. in fact it is one of only two releases i have been listening to since just before Halloween. (more on the other of them soon.)

i thought that Jake Fairley, like several other DJs and producers from back-in-the-day, had moved to Germany to plant roots in more fertile ground, but i may have been mistaken.. he might still be in Toronto. i’m curious about this, so if anybody knows one way or the other, drop a note in comments.

Shapes is on full automatic repeat and KILLING ME the last couple of days. the oscillator! the beat! the click! the claps! the pads! the bass! and that triple reverb dipped bit near the end? if i look up techno in the dictionary right now i’m pretty sure that this track is pictured. regardless of location roots are planted and growing and blossom thus..

Zombie Nation ~ Worth It (Pt. 1)

13 05 2009

zombielicious
Tiga says that there are very few people who are both German and get the groove and though i’m not so sure about the statement in its entirety there is no doubt that Florian Senfter (AKA Zombie Nation and others) has a full complement of groove. i think Worth It constitutes the second single off his new record Zombielicious, released in March, but it might be both parts together rather than just first which i offer here.. anyway i haven’t made it that far yet because i am still just repeating the whole awesome LP. the first single, Forza, was released last fall and features some dope remixes which are also worth checking out, but this is the track that has me right now.
