- Is the Monad-series digital only or have any of the releases been put on wax?
- Rrose (Sandwell District) wouldn't be releasing records on Stroboscopic if it was not a highly relevant label. ignore soup of the day's
reductive attempt to try and be a mix mag type music journalist.
"most of the SA catalog is just Ableton re-interpretations of dubby-industrial influenced techno that you can you can find better, more emotive examples if you trawl through the 90s/early2000s techno scene."
Yea er no it's not, and no one ever said stroboscopic where trying to reinterpret pre millennial emotive techno either, what does that even mean "Ableton reinterpretations what the literal Fu*k
has a daw got to do with the musical content on a label, just another baseless, meaningless, useless, tenuous, assumption
A fair critique as I see it would be to say sometimes it strays to far toward coffee table pretentiousness to be useful, But aged badly??
No way this is forward thinking techno and a great addition to the palette of the modern dark techno sound.
I have trawled through most things as I worked in the Dance section of the music and video exchange in london there is nothing
that has not been though our doors from any era I am not aware of and I can honestly say keep your eye on stroboscopic!
This is one of the places where by techno is holding on to it's relevance...
- Edited 8 years agoThis label has aged pretty badly. Aside from the high quality releases from Dozzy, Rrose, Kangding Ray and Peter Van Hoesen related EPs most of the SA catalog is just Ableton re-interpretations of dubby-industrial influenced techno that you can you can find better, more emotive examples if you trawl through the 90s/early2000s techno scene.
- Edited 13 years agoStroboscopic Artifacts..WOW! I've been playing all the releases since it's second release by Xhin came out and what can I say more than it never ceases to amaze me?? All the tracks released by this label are killer DJ-tools and will tear every dance floor apart!
What's so stunning about the output of this label, is that every single track feels like a revolutionary release. It's the freshest, purest techno, out there at the moment. With the death of minimal behind us, they're serving us the blueprints of future techno, while keeping a minimal estheatic in their sound.
I began to write this review prior to their newest release by Pfirter, Monad IV. Wich came out yesterday. It's their twelveth release in 10 months and again proves the power behind SA's philosophy. I don't tend do buy much records on Beatport, but this one, just like the rest of the label's output, is so much worth it! I'll play strobothings tomorrow in front of 400 people and I'm sure their will be many, many dancefloors to follow wich will enjoy this fine, fine release!
I cannot even imagine how bright SA's future will be. Thumbs up for Lucy!
