This has received zero attention in the music press, I presume its not experimental enough for today's writers and critics. Whilst it is classic electro and therefore neither cutting edge nor (lets face it) especially original it is entirely... See full review

Artilect - Echos

Absolutely massive. The sound of being compressed into an event horizon as you're torn apart atom by atom, only to be reconstructed the other side a totally new person.

How anyone could call this 'very weak track selection' is absolutely beyond me. Even if you're not a fan of house, hardcore or jungle I struggle to see how any music lover could fail to see the rough beauty and rampant energy coursing through the... See full review

Some wish for eternal life, others for peace on Earth and some more still for riches beyond their wildest imaginings. But then, there are others who wish only for a repress of this master piece.

This E.P. is insane. BangersnotBangers. Something strange is growing down on the brainfarm. One of the best E.P.s of the year so far for me.

Why are the prices so low on this? Its an absolute belter of an EP! Every single track is gold. Its such a versatile E.P. Pitch up This Whole Affair Is So Fucking Unfair and fit it into your 90s Downwards appreciation set and watch it go bang. Or set... See full review

Absolutely beautiful E.P. Channelling Detroit/Chicago goodness, reverential but never fawning.

This is something really quite special right here. Tunes for the girls and the boys, day or night. Really versatile EP. Bangers not klangers. Delicious.

Great EP without a doubt, but Vertical67's track on B2 is something particularly special, absolutely phenomenal piece of music.

Native Rhythm Electric is one of the best tunes ever released on Ostgut. Even if it does sound somewhat reminiscent of Planetary Assault System's 1997 tunneller 'Tap Dance'.
posted a comment on ABSL - À Double Tranchant. over 4 years ago
A double trenchant is an absolute rip snorting monster of a track. It won't make any friends on intellectual merit, but utilised correctly your dancefloor will be far too busy ripping their tops off and pumping their fists in the air to care as... See full review

So what is this then, like banging hardware edits of obscure old post-punk tunes? Either way it smashes, essential release.

Absolutely beautiful, the record harks back to classic Future Sound of London whilst still retaining its own personality/sound.

Wow! Well that was different... Deep, hypnotic, raw. Poetic. Sounding like The Fall if Mark E Smith had been born in 1980. Can't wait to play it out and watch heads pop all over the place!

This was a really good release, slept on. Such a shame given the high quality of the noisy Dutch West Coast nihilism on display.

This is an absolutely phenomenal collection of techno.

Compilations... Meh. I had my doubts. Often you find yourself only returning to 50% of the tunes, if that. But this particular set of vinyl smashes it out of the proverbial park.

I think the artwork reflects the music really well. At first glance it could be something seedy, but then look a little harder and it could be something really beautiful: is it a used tissue following a sex act or a beautiful white flower? I think... See full review

Under rated producer, needs way more props: deep dark electro, often quite slow but with beautiful wistful melodies, remembering loneliness and supernovas.

Consistently quality British house label: veering toward the cleaner end of the production spectrum but unafraid to host skippy garage rhythms and dub-step inspired bass line workouts amidst the 90s affected house sounds. Always classy, always groovy... See full review

Did this fly under the rader or summit? There's still stock! Cold, grimy, hypnotic minimal techno tracks in the vein of Downwards' Female releases.

I keep returning to this EP: minimalist, deep, dark, smoky sub-rattling tunes heavily indebted to the earliest dub-step releases. Most tracks include a deft use of obscure samples and chilling little melodies weaving in and out of lithe UK funky drum... See full review
