With new track ‘Warschauer Strasse’, Claudio Ricci has created an expansive seven minute workout of twisted synths and deep house drums. The first remix comes from long time techno heavyweight Timo Maas and the prolific and inventive Basti Grub. Their singular remix speeds up the original and layers in fluttering toms and percussive sounds as well as broad, groaning synths and the distant sound of a bustling city at rush hour. Sudam label boss and Ibiza based artist Kintar flips the track into something spacious and haunting. Eerie keys and sweeping synths keep you on edge as the rubbery techno groove rolls on into the night. Bulgarian based Metodi Hristov loves to experiment and has a distinctive techno style that gains support from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Carl Cox and Adam Beyer. In his hands the track becomes a peak time tech banger!

You Record are proud to present their eleventh release, the ‘Kant Straße’ EP by S Katz aka Katsuhiko. From 2016 – 2017 he was granted the opportunity to produce multiple tracks at a studio on KantStraße in Berlin using hardware supplied by Dandy Jack, with whom the space is shared, and his dear friend Mathew Jonson. Opening track is a groove-driven roller with robotic glitches talking a language of their own. ‘Hats and Steps’ is a versatile dancefloor cut replete with subtle details and layered rhythms. ‘Forest In Me’ takes a trippy journey to the afterhours with immersive field recordings and entrancing blips. Closing the EP is ‘You Are In The Display’, a truly weird vocoder-led track with swung percussion and a shuffling bass melody. This EP serves as a prologue to S Katz’s forthcoming album.
Leading from Italy It’s Vanni Bacco aka Reclame presenting his debut ep “Profumo Pungente“ on Serialism. Little is known from this talented artist but the just few releases under his belt and his discerning personality have attracted Cesare’s attention after a tip from a Russian family member and A&R Anushka. The entire record is a splendid, very unique minimal play. The 5 tunes of the EP are produced diligently mixing intricate click-clacking grooves that makes a solid base to deep and soulful under melodies. The result is a completely harmonic general feeling, a healthy mix of micro emotions drawn to bring our mind to a trip but to keep the will to dance all the way… our favourite.
Klezmer is a song from the Italian duo PIZETA, which originally came out in 2009. It became a global hit played in every kind of set.

Now the original producers has made a new release with the evergreen original one plus 2 original vocal mix (very similar to the no vocal original one) and 2 remixed version: INGRID BORDERLINE: techno dark,twisted sounds,dark voices; a completely different version from previous remix pocket that will help who wants keep an hard set but never lose the opportunity to play this one MATA JONES :a big techouse remix with dreamy voices and big grooves never let you until the end. The breaks will kill you!

Serialism Records tenth anniversary continues with momentum and another essential package, Cesare vs Disorder & Quenums Azimute project returns to the imprint. The boys have been touring the world and putting the final touches on their fourth coming album. “We Are The Sound” feat Rocky Washington came out on Serialism in 2015 with massive support. the long awaited part 2 remixes are finally here! First up we have Romanian duo Livio & Roby deliver punchy drum machine programming and underlying percussion, which propels this number effortlessly, with an infectious no urgency mood. Azimute‘s Trippy Remix is just that, its stripped back and minimalistic, with a low droning sub and eerie pads, this one is deep! Alex Smoke takes a turn and presents an almost 80’s electro drum groove with rave lead stabs that surge through the arrangement To finish off this killer remix package, Russian starlet Anushka.
Alone, all four remixes do not fit into a genre box. This is most likely the original of the forthcoming LP of the same name. The style of Frank Krumsdorf is strongly influenced by jazz. A soundtrack without a movie hits it pretty much. The four different remixes consistently distract us from what actually comes to us. A wonderful LP which is consistently surprised. Deep and with strings surrounded House by Barbaros. Progressive and with a slight slope to Big Room, which is not surprising, by Julian Reifegerste. Ben Elvis Mettin once again invents a new genre with his remix, which is strongly reminiscent of the “New Beat” of the 1990s. Technoid with a lot of groove, always looking forward, so Chris Maico Schmidt presents good news.
