Luke Hess & Marko Fürstenberg - Campfire Dialogue [2008, vinyl, echocord colour]





























september 2008
lbl: Echocord Colour
#: Echocord Colour 02
electronic
dub, techno
~207kbps



A. Luke Hess - Platte

B. Marko Fürstenberg - Site 312



note: "While no proper affiliation exists between Detroit’s Echospace and Denmark’s Echocord, there is certainly an interesting volley of ideas taking place between the two like-minded labels. Both champion a sonorous mid-tempo dub style, and, with the recent launch of the sub-label Echocord Colour, both please collectors with lush transparent records. But while the former favors muffled bass kicks and swishing ambience, the latter keeps the dance floor a bit closer to its heart. On “Campire Dialogue,” the second release on Echocord Colour, Luke Hess and Marko Fürstenberg keep the beats punchy and the vibe tight, but hold onto the cavernous imagery that’s given the “echo” variety of dub so much staying power. [...]" - Will Lynch, Little White Earbuds.

Six In A Row

B2.
From A Distance



Producer - Stephan Laubner

note: "Is this then STL in a nutshell, as its anagrammatical title furthermore suggests? Perhaps. But in light of Laubner's unrelenting high-quality output, one would be hard-pressed to pick such a thing as a quintessential STL track. Ever since his first release on Perlon a decade ago, he's wielded a musical palette that is unique in colouring: An aesthetic of noise and dirt is the common thread to STL's meandering excursions into the old-world territories of deep house and techno. Having released the bulk of his work on his own Something imprint, it's more than noteworthy that STL has furthered his spectrum of labels with Smallville. Quite befitting for the Hamburg-based label, the new 12-inch is dubby at heart: The elegant and spacious B-side cuts "From a Distance" and "Six in a Row" may sound a bit low-key at first, but they handily overtake most of the current dub techno productions on the market these days. Essential release." - Bjørn Schaeffner.

While busy running his own cool Vmax label for his obscure and more freaky electro-techno experiments, Heath drops some amazing techno tracks on Frantic Flowers that will be appealing to a much wider audience then his release on Frantic Flower's sister label Frustrated Funk. Classic Detroit techno energetic and uplifting with smooth effective basslines."

note: "The seven songs here are a strong, smart combination of pummelling riffage and carefully-planned changes, something like a Ruins' 45 played at 33 – or a more complex updating of Godflesh. There's a surprising amount of variety, given that it can be tricky to individualize tracks when they're instrumental and this heavy; it's nearly all deep, aggressive rock churn, dominated by smashing drums, ultra-low grinding bass and guitar that shoots off shards of distortion in all directions. The ingredients don't vary much, it's the mixture of them that maintains interest. And, wisely, Noxagt display an awareness of the listener's attention span, keeping the album at an easily-digestible 38 minutes."- Dusted.

note: "Funkstorung may never be able to escape the inevitable comparisons to Autechre. While most people (myself included) would never mean this disparagingly, its clear that Funkstorung will have to take fairly radical steps to escape Autechre's long shadow. With the release of "Appetite for Disctruction" (yes, it is a Guns 'N Roses tribute) they have set out on a path to carve a unique and influencial niche in the field of electronic music." - Thomas Aikin.

note: "Finland's premier electronic provocateurs Mika Vainio and Ilpo Vaisanen always professed admiration for the shock tactics of The KLF's Jimmy Cauty (whose ideations include the lethal "sound cannon"). With KULMA (and the preceding OSASTO EP), Pan Sonic's own inclinations towards sonic terrorism come to the forefront of the group's minimalist techno lattices. The subtle shifts and pulses of the earlier VAKIO are largely absent from the duo's second album, replaced instead by an onslaught of grating, screeching, and squealing slaughterhouse hydraulics."

Producer - Stephen Hitchell

note: "You could, in some ways, call it ambient I suppose, but it has way too many hints of his rhythmic background to be 100% beatless. On the contrary he uses percussive elements in such a keen way that they serve to accentuate what we all know he’s so good at: those chords and melodies. Another big feature of this album is the inclusion of a wealth of field recordings made whilst experiencing a late night storm in Berlin and a train journey in Japan. These recordings perfectly fit the ambience of Steve’s work, particularly the train journey elements. There’s something about his tracks that gives you a sense of movement – I can vouch for the fact that this album sounds utterly amazing whilst gazing out of the window sitting on a train."

note: "OVERCAST SOUND is electronic music project formed by Michael Pettit and Jamie Drouin in 2005. Centering their compositions around the sparse arrangements of minimal techno, the repetitive chords of dub, and fragments of field recordings, OVERCAST SOUND present an intense and introspective vision of modern electronic music.
In their influential live performances, OVERCAST SOUND focuses on a fluid interaction between the two members, creating a unique performance each time by relying on improvisation and randomness within their distinct style." - Silent Season.

note: "Throughout the album, Larkin peppers his elegant tech-house rhythms with jazzy keyboard fills, strings, tambourines and oddball synth blurts, making for an especially tuneful listen that doesn't skimp on the ass-shaking. Fans of Larkin's classic works will not be disappointed here, nor will those discovering his music for the first time (a likely case, considering how long he's been out of the game). Here's hoping he sticks around this time and lives up to the promise of his early career." - Todd Hutlock, RA.

note: "The trio collaboratively wrote most of the 13 selections. The music mixes Eastern European melodic traditions, cabaret and chamber music sensibilities, small combo jazz, and even a bit of progressive rock. The tunes are rich with character and never much more than three minutes in length. While iconoclastic in its refusal to adhere to any particular existing boundaries, this is very friendly music. Volapnuk make excellent ambassadors for the avant-garde."

note: "With plenty of Miles and Ornette obviously under their belts, Mazurek and company have enough grounding in prog-jazz history to sound both confident and authentic in their further explorations in the kind of improvisational territory that's forward-looking enough to defy simple categorization."

note: "One vinyl, two artists, six tracks. ''Split 2'' mixes sleek Detroit techno grooves with original, inspired machine music. ERP is for fans of Basic Channel or Deep Chord. Mariel Ito aka Maetrik (Treibstoff) serves most complex, metallic and mashed-up dancefloor beats but takes things one step further with the creation of a new alter ego programmed and honed for maximum dancefloor decimation."

note: Text on front cover from Jeff Sawell reads:
Revolutionary art is not determined by it's avant garde content; nor its formal or technical trickery, it's interpretation of reality or its verisimilitude, but, rather, by how much it revolutionises our thinking and imagination; overturning our preconceptions, bias and predjudice and inspiring us to change ourselves and the world...
