Sascha Müller's 27th untitled album piece on his very own Super Six Records label once again serves a technoid menu of twelve tracks designed for straight dancefloor abuse. Starting with the metallic stomper "Online" the "Planet Riders" take over quickly searching for an uptempo thrill provided by big room basslines and seductive stabs in company with razor sharp hi-hats, morphing filters altering cosmic strings and constant pressure. With "Raumflug" - which translates as 'space travel' - we're entering Downtempo realms and approximately four minutes of relaxing chord works before superdry Techno drums and cowbells take us back to where our heart his whilst repetetive yet changing variations of the main synth motif work their way through unprocessed hi-hats and cheeping sinewave loops in "Relativity". As expected the "Gong  Part 03" - of which parts one and two were featured on previous albums - is an Ambient'ish affair based on singing bowls, "Sterntaler" comes up as playful'n'positive piece of Armchair Techno which might be described as a mixture of Plaid and early The Black Dog on top of a straight 4/4 structure with a 1993 or 1994 twist and "SBX33" takes this space journey even further with hypnotic, deep ass bass movemnets and dubbed out chord works. Going in as one of the shorter tracks on this album with a runtime of about four and a half minutes "Schalldruck" provides - as the track name suggests - proper pressure as a pretty hypnotic piece of classic Techno, followed by a more melancholia-driven, Electronica-leaning tune named "Schlag Durch Die Mitte" that works well alongside sweet little gems released via labels like Digital Kranky, Morr Music and related. With "See My Tears  (Club Mix)" Sascha Müller finally enters the Trance arena with what possibly would've been an anthem in the 90s featuring all the right amount of ingredients and drumrolls, although the main synth melody is quite cheesy when it comes to chord progressions. With "She Is Beautiful" we even have a kind of - surprising - homage to EuroDance bassline works in here before the final cut "Steneberg" relies on dreamy, Trance-inducing melodies and a deep seductive male vocal popping the "music with more muscle" over and over again to wave exhausted ravers goodby after a long night out. Proper work. We like.

Dark Ambient and some spooky footage #ftw. Aehm's "Seven Month" is one of the ten tracks featured on the new highly  limited cassette compilation coming along the third edition of the Trennlinie Zwischen Gesten art- / dada-magazine. And talking limitations this means 15 hand-numbered cassette copies worldwide!

Scheduled for September 26th as cat.no.027 of the great Psychocandies-imprint is the "Untitled EP" which contains - as the name might suggest - two untitled tracks by the mysterious project The 808 Hillybillys which are about to rock dancefloors with their classic approach for a reason. Track one, spread out over approx 7.5 minutes, is a blueprint for stripped down - not: minimal - yet demanding Techno with layers and layers of razor sharp hi-hats building up whilst a short, acidic loop is propelling its way back'n'forth through the dancing punters braincells, keeping its spiralling momentum to the very end. Talking the untitled second track on this digital single we're taking off into the spheres of floating, uplifting and well-mesmerizing AcidTrance of the classic kind, built on decent, bubbly 303-modulations and nice, carefully arranged strings slowly beaming crowds into lovely, rainbow-coloured heavens. We like this.

The man Jakob Häglsperger a.k.a. Kalipo has just released his new and highly recommended album "Yaruto" and gives away a super lovely, exclusive non-album track to celebrate his longplay debut. Nice.

Scheduled for release on September 5th via the Cat Werk Imprint is "Beauty Sleep", the fifth full-length album workout of Olivia Louvel which approaches the realms of mystical, haunted, probably even bewitched and defo song-induced Downtempo / TripHop under the influence of a few folk'ish, ritual and sometimes even theatrical elements and the occasional Bjørk'ish, experimental eruptions touched by Noize and playful electronics alike - see especially track 3, "Bloody", for this one which is, alongside the intense Slow Rave jam "Polytypes Of Love", one of the most thrilling cuts on "Beauty Sleep". Returning to - twisted, but still - song format after her last album piece, it seems, at least according to the info sheet this is, that she's dealing with the overall concept of animalism on this one conceptually, although this might happen on the meta-side of things only as the lyrics do not unveil direct clues that point towards this conception. What Olivia Louvel unveils instead is one of the most fascinating song-bound albums we've heard in a while, one that really tells a s-t-o-r-y of cloudy forests, long lost secrets and scary spells, of hermaphroditic beings, supernatural powers and more supernatural mystery. Recommended.
