André Galluzzi - Alcatraz

Jan 16, 2015

aras06Titled “Alcatraz", André Galluzzi releases a pulsating symbiosis of intense snapshots from excessive clubnights and deeply pervasive soundscapes. On powerful wings and with full range, “Alcatraz” glides through the various spheres of this planet called Techno. With each beat, every snare and bassline, André Galluzzi is fascinating mind, body and soul. Similar to his live-sets the debut album has a captivating conceptual build, gaining speed and intensity steadily, and turning the world upside down for a moment. “Alcatraz”

Stefan Goldmann - Industry

Nov 12, 2014

macrom40 INDUSTRY sheds all personalized effort and tests how far you can get by using presets only. All sounds are factory presets of 3 obsolete 1990s Japanese workstation synths, all effects are presets, all notes are quantized and most panning is purely accidental (laid out in the preset sounds). INDUSTRY doesn’t rely on successful presets, but on failed sounds of now obsolete synthesizers - industrial assumptions of where culture will go, but where it chose not to. The result is a surprisingly pleasant listening experience with effortless grooves and rich textures - and

Vince Watson — “Deja Vu, Josh Wink Remix” on OVUM

DJ: “John Digweed: Yeah, love this new Vince Watson release. Been playing the tracks ever since you sent them and featured Josh’s mix on the new Transitions show. Ryan Crosson: Classy work from two seasoned vets. Wink remix will probably get most play but I love the whole release. Great work. Heidi: Wink can do no wrong in my eyes. Ever! Gary Beck : Excellent stuff. I think the word lush comes to mind on Vince's originals. I'm still a sucker for bongos so I also love Josh's re-think mix. Thanks! Chymera: Vince is the master of the chord progression. Deja Vu really reminds of his deeper stuff on Fcomm.. and Illusion is classic Vince. Wink's version is suitably uptempo interpretation. also great Marc Romboy: I know simply one word for this release: Beautiful! Laurent Garnier: Vince is one of my favourite techno producers of all time ......... Perfect music as always from Mr Watson! Catz ‘n Dogz (Voitek): I am really loving the beatless version of Déjà vu. Lovely! Christian Smith: Vinnie is my favourite European-Detroit techno producer. Great remix from Josh too! Lee Burridge: Illusion all the way. Both mixes make me smile and get excited about for day parties J ”
