Tracklist:
A.
Decaedra
B.
1Unedit



note: atheus keeps it 100% real here with a stunning dub techno 2 tracker that's literally brimming with groove, soul, depth and flavour.

niesamowicie potężny kawał mięsiwa, niewątpliwy smaczek stanowi 'spaprany' mastering, 20-30Hz kolosy nie oszczędzą ani Twojej głowy, ani hardware'u - ukochany subwoofer odpłynie w szalonych pląsach zupełnie jak na kreskówkach. niby fajnie, tylko po co nękać* membrany czymś, czego odbiorca i tak nie usłyszy?

1. Big City Street

4. Forest
5. Mutation
6. Supper
7. Tunnel
8. Solar Eclipse
9. Gulf Stream



note: 'so, ultimately, success; when his set's doofist beat spine flexes, and is fleshed with a floating cast - a slurry and slick of granular textures and fluid strata.'

byliście kiedyś w knajpie gdzie serwowanym smakowitościom towarzyszyły soczyste, arbuzowe dubteki, a talerze z zupą regularnie rozbijały się z głośnym hukiem o ziemię?
świetnie zrealizowane operacje na bezkresnej przestrzeni z wykorzystaniem klasycznej maszynerii delay/reverb/resonator, doprawione kilkoma garściami charakteru.

Blasta - The Incredible Adventures Of Kenzolika & Quetzalcoatl Among The Air Castles [2009, file, argon]























Red Apple by David Fuhrer


Released: June 2009
Label: Argon
Genre: Electronic
Style: Dubstep
Bitrate: 320kbps


Tracklist:
1. Owls' Fall
2. Syrup Remix

5. Feels So Good
6. Zeppelin Nacelle
7. Cosmic Lounge
8. Your Dub Delay
9. Black Muscatel
10. Butterflyz Inside U
11. Trip42




note: 'the Russian's unwieldily titled new album on Argon, taking a lighthearted, jazzy approach to the dubstep movement, combining all the requisite sub bass throb with lyrical keys, unexpectedly easy listening-influenced sampling and the odd dash of reed playing. Sometimes, as on the choppy, urgent house of 'Feels So Good', Andriyanov departs from his lounge-step comfort zone and pulls something altogether more dancefloor-centric out of the bag, giving you a real feel for this record's breadth of scope.

Marc Leclair - Musique Pour 3 Femmes Enceintes [2005, cd, mutek_rec]























Released: 2005

6. 150e Jour
7. 180e Jour
8. 205e Jour
9. 236e Jour



note: ''musique pour 3 femmes enceintes' is most assuredly not an Akufen album; what it most assuredly is, however, is marvelous, a richly textured travelogue of tactile ambient soundscaping. Leclair brings a different though no less accomplished and sophisticated sensibility to this music as he does to his dance-oriented Akufen and Horror Inc. tracks.'

note: '"sketch on glass" kicks things off and it turns out to be this duo's most dancey tune to date. Ultra-squelchy synths pitter-patter around an awesomely swinging rhythm section and even though this doesn't sound anything like any of the tunes on the "maybes ep" it is still, unmistakenly, Mount Kimbie.' KICKS ASS.
