1-The latest in a flurry of sublime Lost On You releases comes from German producer Daniel Rateuke, who join techno’s first completely philanthropic label for three tracks EP, a high-fidelity offering of oscillator explorations designed for sunrise at the after party.With mad scattered tribal percussion, Maasai is a slow-burner, resting itself on the precipice of a mountainous drop and forcing you to stare into the bubbling abyss below. Pleas and exhortations whirl through the air, panoptic chords sweep through your vision, and you are falling. With each kick drum, Maasai reaches a new depth of subterranea, until you are firmly in the grip of the underground system.The main feeling you take away from the Maasai EP is one of adventure not usually found in electronic music, of being guided somewhere – somewhere better – by invisible forces.
2-Matias Chilano starts the new year with a load of silky smooth progressive vibes on the ‘Red Line’ EP.
2019 was a good year for Matias, highlighted by a coveted addition to the Patrice Baumel Global Underground mix, the first City Series compilation in 4 years, along with releases on the fast growing Onedotsixtwo, Balkan Connection and more. To add to this, he’s had a busy year of gigs around Argentina and strong support from Spotify, so 2020 looks like it’ll be even bigger.Opening with ‘Red Line’ we are quickly whisked away with rolling bass and hats, underpinned by surefooted kicks. Bass pressure increases organically as soundscape pads glisten on this new school meets old groovathon. ‘Watergate’ follows apace. Tribal rhythms from the outset make way for a strong percussive underbelly and delicate sonics. Mind music at its devastating finest. Finally, ‘Analog Ghosts’ rounds out a fascinating triple-header.
3-Every so often a shift in the musical paradigm occurs, a glitch in the Matrix if you will, and through this anomaly, this black hole, this vacuum of bass, the truth cuts through like a Japanese blade through a pat of Lurpak.Given the option of taking the blue pill or the red pill, we would strongly recommend you take both! Because Audio Anonymous, the enigmas, the masters of synth, the captains of your soul, the doctors of destiny, the men who invented sound itself, will go far beyond even the farthest reaches of the rabbit hole and teach you how to truly feel.Audio Anonymous invite us to contemplate a unique perspective of sound, unraveling progressive roots, melodics in motion and harmonic synths in their new single ‘The Invisibles’.
