Born in Australia but moving to Japan in 2000, Luke Le Mans is the main organizer of the night “quop” in Osaka which focused on bringing big international djs and contribute to create a scene in the roughest Japanese city. After releasing his debut EP on Trapez Luke is back with this 2 tracker onTrenton. Much more mature, his talent as a producer are undeniable and we hope that this will be the beginning of long series of old school but yet modern minimal material for Trenton. “Dark Helmet” has dry beats and a funky bass line with a crazy chord’s pattern that has some sort of a B horror movie vibe… like a minimal techno version of a Dario Argento’s soundtrack, Dark Helmet will bring you out-there! The second track called “Lisa” is a bit more old school but still rules and the endless loopy bass ramp that just keeps on building up will make your legs feel a bit less heavy and your mouth a bit thirstier… SLG is back on Trenton, but for a remix this time. After is very first EP on our label we are proud to have him back. His version of “Dark Helmet” is just outstanding… Pure SLG style, it has it all: Detroit, minimal, forward, groovy… if you are still sitting in a club’s corner after hearing that on the P.A…. means that you have serious issues with being able to feel the funk!!! It’s our 020 and it’s a winner…

(Each - Out of Orbit - Bay Str: “Lisa is a real hypnotic monster**** maaan....Groovy as fuck!! i Loved the heavy Maniac fucked up bass !! Slg remixx Rocks too !!! His stuff is greaaat!! full support!!! What's coming next?? ”

Bigshot Mag (USA): “Taking a slightly different approach from the smooth chord driven sound that Trenton is known for, Osaka based Le Mans is here to debut his old-school yet modern minimal sound. Dry skeletal beats and raw funk meet a crazy key riff straight out of a cheap horror flick. Side B presents a similar analog vibe, however the brewing loopy bass keeps on building until the track is ready to burst. Let’s keep this groove going! Praxis”

daniel dreier (Highgrade): “ dark helmet - when the sun comes up ”

dave twomey: “ Its a craaaacker... title track the one for me. nice... ”

De:Bug (GER): “Sehr konzentriert tippig dunkel funkige Minimaltracks, die der sonst so oft leichten Haltung von Trenton irgendwie eine Art von Grundsätzlichkeit einflößen, die aber durch die eigenwillige Art Samples in den Groove einzumogeln, irgendwie doch noch etwas Blumiges bekommen. Musik für all die, die Minimal lieben, aber die Seele darin manchmal etwas vermissen. Luke Le Mans hat bei aller Abstraktion nämlich eine Basis von House, die er hier nie verlässt, die aber dennoch nicht so stark durchscheint, dass man sie wirklich als Retro wiedererkennen würde. Auf der Rückseite ein brillianter Remix von SLG, die mal wieder zeigen, dass sie im Feld der wirbelnd melodischen Chicagotracks angetreten sind, um Allererster zu werden. bleed •••••”
