Fake Blood // Cells

12 Nov

Few DJs have truly trashed the rulebook like Fake Blood. When his remixes snuck onto the dance scene in 2008, he shied away from the spotlight and, like a dancefloor ninja, managed to keep his identity firmly under wraps. There were no gimmicks, no stadium-sized headpieces or fancy dress masks to obscure him, just a desire for club heads to absorb his music without any preconceptions. Four years and four EPs on, Keating is still something of an enigma. He doesn’t prey on fame, he does very few interviews and he isn’t part of a DJ crew: he has always preferred to let his music speak for itself. He’s been in no hurry to release a record either – until now, that is. Keating has found a home on Different Recordings, which counts club crusaders like Tiga, Felix Da Housecat and Vitalic among its roster, and is finally ready to present his debut album: Cells. (Different Recordings SC, 2012)

Matthias Zimmermann // Botanica Dub EP

10 Nov

…German maestro MATTHIAS ZIMMERMANN is back for the third time on his newly-permanent home Sound Pellegrino. 
Inpired by the wonderfully grandiose garden situated on the left bank of Paris known as Jardin des Plantes, here is Matthias Zimmermann’s latest offering, the “BOTANICA DUB” EP.

Built for the dancefloor, bearing the specificities of a proper organic techno tool but not devoid of subtle grooves and details, “Paul” is quite unusually ‘tracky’ for a Matthias Zimmermann track. It is as club-friendly as it is mental and hypnotizing, its mid-tempo pulse radiating with magnetic sex appeal.

“Quincy” picks up where Matthias’s spielbergian weirdo-hit from last year “Luther” left off. Hysterical drums, crunched and de-pitched to abstraction, unravelling what happens to be chopped up bird sounds Matthias himself sampled during his latest trip to the aforementioned Jardin des Plantes (we believe he deserves some sort of French national distinction for doing this), resulting in a rare broken banger.beating at 114bpm around a fantastic climactic core.

“Vincente” is the hidden gem of the “Botanica Dub” EP. Relentless drums built around a reconstructed filtered tear-jerking rainbow r&b guitar solo which will turn your world into a black neon French movie romance where you’ll be spinning and whirling in slow motion while holding your lover’s arms until you both take off and reach the stars. A nice way to wrap up this dreamy EP, the new theme songs for life on the colourful archipelago situated inside composer Matthias Zimmermann’s head. — Teki Latex (Sound Pellegrino SC, 2012)
