Peter Benisch, Benisch Tracks 1 [Eevo Lute Music & Technology, 2002]

A four track 12″ signed Peter Benisch that starts of with “Sabine’s song”. A sweet, sweet, sweet melody on a blueprint Benisch track, that is, the sounds and production bears his unmistakable insignia.

The second track “Faster than light”… Continue reading Peter Benisch, Benisch Tracks 1 [Eevo Lute Music & Technology, 2002]

Metamatics, Remixes [Delikatessen Records – PLATE3, 2002]

Metamatics of Neo Ouija fame gets remixed and ends up on this, the third delikatessen release. A-side’s first track “byeway rewired” has the distinct sounds of the remixer: sense.

But since the tracks are intertwined, it can very well be viewed as a 54… Continue reading Naono, Slope Drifting [Vibrant Music – VMD-3, 2002]

Complex beats, plenty of bass and the lushest sounding melodies, as you would expect from this outstanding group: Funckarma.
