Review: Fantastic Twins continue to explore intriguing corners of acid with a third volume of their snappily titled Microdosing label series, following ace contributions thus far from the likes of Smagghe & Cross, Naum Gabo, Gilb'r and Oceanic. This time around Cooper Saver brings arpeggios to die for, Borusiade goes slow and low with a chuggy trip-out, Zillas On Acid builds up a stiff drum jack dripping with tension and Scott Fraser skips off into a frankly stunning curveball of fast-ticking drum machine patter and illustrious synth work. It's the B2 of your dreams - one that makes this record all the more essential.
Review: Exclusive 7" single in conjunction with Mount Alalog Los Angeles presenting Crimes Of The Future label bosses Scott Fraser and Timothy J. Fairplay with 2 exclusive cuts of leftfield house and electro psychedelia... very limited copies!
Review: DX Recordings returns with a four tracker from Scott Fraser, folllowing on from the inaugural Dariana 12" earlier this year featuring a deep as hell remix from Chicago legend Mystic Bill. 3 different moods of analogue warmth starting off with "No Word Of Truth" a driving Detroit infused groove joining the dots across to Berlin's Basic Channel, with a Deep bassline, rattling tom's and shifting high hats. On B2 Mystic Bill takes the track deeper and darker, adding dubs, soaring vocals and tight percussion this is Mystic Bills trademark deepness at its best. Over on side B we start off with another Aslice of classic deep techno with a heady basslin. Thumping drums and driving strings keeping feet firmly on the danceloor, leaning heavily again towards Detroit a massive bassline rips in and the strobes come on . Finally on B2 another original remastered piece of deepness from the vaults finally see's a full release on vinyl. Simple, deep vibing house finding a loft space somehere that Metro Area were residing in 2000's New York.
Review: Scott Fraser and Timothy J Fairplay's Crimes Of The Future label has had quite the banner year, ushering in various projects from the pair as well as seeking out like-minded contemporaries such as Perseus Traxx. The latest Crimes of the Future release introduces Bulb, another project bearing the label founder's finger prints along with a high profile third colluder in one William Burnett. Apparently laid down at WT Records HQ in the spring of 2014 whilst Fairplay and Fraser were committing Crimes in NYC, Bulb is a bold offering from the trio with two extended dancefloor workouts taking a side each. "Light It Up" pairs ghetto techno breaks with something from wayward Kosmiche studio experiments in deepest Germany, whilst "Dimmer Switch" plunges into a world of psychedelia and cavernous cave dwellings thanks to some dark ambient synthesis and stabbing drums.
