Big rework of Picotto’s trance classic 'Iguana' by Bournemouth brothers The Organ Donors, adding a ferocious sub-heavy bassline as well as a subtle counter melody on top of the original well-known melodies in the breakdown, dropping with some distorted sounds and pounding beats. This is sure to get a lot of plays at festivals worldwide this summer.
One of the stand-out cuts from his ‘Years Not Living’ LP, ‘With All Your Eyes Look’ is a mesmerising piece (much like the rest of the album) that draws from a smorgasbord of influences both past and present to create a rich tapestry of driven psychedelia. Fits rather nicely around the section containing Beck, Tortoise, Can, Caribou and Dan Deacon. There are rich pickings with some diverse mixes too.
It’s certainly got some weight to it. As it stomps over the dancefloor you can pick up an air of cinematic sci-fi. The bass swoops low, cutting through the dark atmosphere like a decorated scimitar. Track of the EP, though, has got to be 'Hell Rose (Villem & Mcleod Remix)'.
The latest release on Guy Tavares’ grungy techno label sees Hague duo Ghettogem share vinyl space with Golden Pudel residents Helena Hauff and F”x under their Black Sites guise. Ghettogem’s untitled track goes on for what seems like an eternity, a pared-back live jam powered by volleys of snares and insane acid tones and bleeps. Black Sites’ approach is more succinct but just as extreme, with shrill sirens, ringing feedback and the sound levels dropping sporadically, as the German duo deliver their own untamed take on acid jack.
