OPEN SOURCE - JEFF AMADEUS & DIRTY BASS - OS002
Nice groove of the A side with a bit of grit that we all need from time to time. Nice and hard with that got to keep chugging down the tracks feel. The b side is a bit more obscure and odd, but definitely worth a listen. You might even be akin to keeping your faith a bit longer. If not I suggest you call the 800 number.
LK REC - LARS KLEIN - LK05
Hard and bangin'. Nothing unusual there from the likes of these masters. How hard can you get? Well if I was going to shoot for 88 miles per hour I would fuel the old Delorian with this piece of wax. You can never have enough good drivers when you want to get the crowd to 1.21 jigawatts.
AUDIO ASSAULT - SKOOG, JOHANSSON, FRIDELL - AAR010
Who ever said that you need to explore new avenues in a new year, when ones like these are just too good? These tracks have it all from bangin’ A sides to groovin’ B sides. It’s like Christmas all over again.
ELP - DK8 - ELPLTD001
not my usual flavor of late, but if I was to find a rare gem in a pile of gold this would be it. This record has a very old school feel and tech-house vibe. We got a winner that you might even find your house Nazi bangin’ their head too.
CROWBAR – VARIOUS - CROWBAR05
get a mouthpiece, this is going to hurt. A beating with this crowbar will certainly land you in ICU. These guys have got to be my top pick for banging in your face tracks of the New Year. Start it off right, just make sure your insurance is up to date first.
ARTILLERY - DJ AMOK - ARTILLERY008
Tanks may be shattered, the lives of millions laid to waste, but the artillery will still be rained down upon you. Killing the masses with an onslaught of the senses, this man has come out of his fox hole and is fighting back. May God have mercy on your soul… this record wont.
ARTILLERY – SEEMA - ARTILLERY007
I try not to place two side by side in my top ten but this is another of those that make me love playing techno. I can hear the teeth breaking from the stress of grinding right now. I think I just got touched in a bad place because I feel so dirty…and good.
CROWBAR – WEICHENTECHNIKK - CROWBAR06
I think I just got my two new favorite labels of the year. This banger is as good as the first. I guess it’s not only a super club now. Call home it’s going to be a long night. We’ll just have to wait and see how we will fare from this experience.
POUNDING GROOVES – UNKNOWN - PGV35
Time for a breather. Ok so I lied a bit. Not so much as the next guy. While not so driving I still think my heart skipped a beat. True to its name, these guys break the mold every time. Who can expect less and why would you want to?
ARMS – VARIOUS - ARMS04
End on a light note? Never. We should only hope that at the end of the day we find ourselves holding on to a bag of records like this one. This has everything you need and more. Leave me be I feel like I have been thru the machine they stonewash jeans in, only with crushed glass.
