The Reason
The Reason (12")
Cat: SOL 9. Rel: 02 Oct 17
Minimal/Tech House
  1. The Reason (7:05)
  2. Ancestors Fun (7:03)
Review: There's deep, and then there's the work of Bastian "Baaz" Volker. The German producer's work is rarely less than ultra-deep, and this return to Slices of Life - a label he last blessed four years ago - is predictably hazy and hypnotic. Title track "The Reason" is typical of his style, with becalmed, head-in-the-clouds chords and chopped-up vocal samples reclining over a crispy tech-house groove. Flipside "Ancestors Groove" is a little livelier, both rhythmically and structurally, with chiming blasts of melody and suitably soulful vocal samples riding a backing track rich in bustling bass, bumping beats and drowsy pads.

Individual Sin
Cat: SOL 12. Rel: 20 Jul 21
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Ghost Talk (10:29)
  2. Idealist Jungle (10:34)
Review: Earlier in the year, Two Dreamers offered up a freshly remastered, 20th anniversary edition of Losoul's pioneering minimal house album, Belong. While that's undoubtedly an inspired album, his new music - as shown by this two-tracker on Slices of Life - is every bit as hypnotic, hazy and intoxicating. Check first A-side 'Ghost Talk', a typically locked-in roller in which deep, off-beat notes and looped, barely audible vocal samples ride a simple but effective bassline and metronomic beats. Equally as alluring is similarly epic flipside 'Idealist Jungle', a deeper and more immersive affair where ghostly chords wrap around a jaunty bassline and an extra-percussive rhythm track.

Inhuman (12")
Cat: SOL 7. Rel: 17 Apr 15
Minimal/Tech House
  1. Inhuman (8:21)
  2. Another One Of Those Nights (5:23)
  3. Hot Tea Dog Man (7:21)
Review: Canada's Colin De La Plante aka The Mole has been an important part of electronic dance music since the early noughties. The man has appeared on countless influential during the electro and minimal house periods including Mathew Jonson's Wagon Repair, Germany's Kompakt stable and more recently even on the Ostgut Ton imprint out of Berlin. More recently, however, he's been popping up frequently on Slices Of Life, a contained hub for like-minded club music nutters. "Inhuman" is a stepping house-techno hybrid with supremely odd melodies floating in the background and one hell of a percussion swing. On the B-side, "Another One Of Those Nights" is deeper and more intricate much like the rest of The Mole's output, and "Hot Tea Dog Man" showcases what the dude is best at - minimal melodies, complex beat patters and that right level of insanity. Class.
