Review

What better way to kick off this new year with an outstanding EP from our latest signing hailing from Japan. RYOH MITOMI is becoming a producer to watch in 2008 through his recent releases on Belgium’s infamous R&S RECORDS, Technasia’s MINIMAXIMA and Canada’s RESTRUCTURED RECORDINGS. Ryoh’s debut IMMIGRANT EP showcases Ryoh’s versatile production style of pure techno to house. Talented Dutch duo POLDER supply an outstanding remix for the 12″ while Ryoh’s fellow Japanese producer A-INC offers a bonus digital remix. Look out for solo EP’s later in 2008 from both Ryoh and A-inc. A1 - Pointe (Original Mix). “Pointe” is a classic ballet term but there’s no padding in the groin of this track. It’s got more balls than a Steve Davis 147 and a perfect example of Ryoh’s no holes barred, pure techno production. The tune clicks n clacks along side a warping synth and a thundering bass line before falling into the dark cervices of an impending black hole. Thanks only to Dark Lord Mitomi, the track mercifully drops back and we can all catch our breath and resume dancing with the Devil. This tune is simply…HUGE! A2 - Stranger Than Paradise (Original Mix). Mitomi swaps hats to reveal his house persona in this deep and emotive house track, concocted of classic lush Rhodes chords, warm sub bass, swinging Chi Town hats and a dynamite piano line. It seems very natural for Ryoh to switch between genres and this is why we love him so. Perfect for warm up sets or to alter the mood of a techno set. Beware, the Dark Lord comes in many forms! B1 - Pointe (Polder Remix). Hailing from Amsterdam, the dutch duo of Laurent Lanting and David Labeij tear apart Mitomi’s original and reconstruct it into a peak time dance floor jam. In true Polder fashion, the remix is scattered with groovy percussion and padded with a thick rolling bass line. The duo edit the textured landscape with short drop outs and a short break using Ryoh’s original synth sounds. Remixes don’t come much better for the dance fl

2000 and One (100% Pure, Intac: “ Crazy phat housey Polder style. I love it !!! ”

Alland Byallo (Mo’s Ferry, Imm: “ Great peak release here! Polder's remix is a funky tripped out ride, but it's A-Inc's remix that I think will get the most play over here. The original mix is a big one, but I think just a bit too big for me. Some great stuff going on here, and I really like the smooth sexy Stranger Than Paradise. Great EP! ”
