Credits: We proudly present UNDERDOG Pt.2:
Tin Man has been creating a stir on dance floors worldwide for many years with his unique vision of acid, techno and house.
In recent times he has opened his production toolbox to a wider variety of styles, also focusing on songwriting, often adding vocals.
The Underdog series, produced last winter in New York, emphasizes on deep killer techno –
This new release – the Underdog EP Part 2 – features three floor shaking techno cuts in different shapes.
On the A Side the aptly titled “Swarm” features an epic minimal acid tune building over 10 minutes driven by twirling soundscapes resembling a swarm of killerbees on attack.
Flipping over there is “Hack”, which bows towards Soundhack with its dirty funked up sample chords and cut up groove.
The EP finishes off with “Rocky”, a masterpiece in reduction – hypnotic and deep techno.
Credits: Preceding the release of Bad Cop Bad Cop’s debut album ‘Wings Of Techno’, 4 tracks of the long player get the remix treatment by a unique quartet of techno artists: TOBIAS, GROUP NIOB, BRENDON MOELLER and Pomelo’s upcoming Star KEMETRIX
‘Wings Of Techno’ is a psychedelic tour-de force through various styles of electronic sounds. Deep and unique, jacking at times while laid back and cosmic at others.
All four remixers on duty here manage to keep the psychedelic and surreal feel of the originals intact while adding a great dose of dancefloor friendliness to the tracks.
– Ostgut’s TOBIAS. reworks ‘Hilton Hihat’ into a deep and dreamy acid techno tune.
– He is followed by Motor City talent KEMETRIX, who steps up the pace and edginess with a twisted, stomping electro-techno hybrid remake of ‘Beauty’.
– GROUP NIOB, the Viennese Duo formed by Cheap Records legend Gerhard Potuznik and Martin Dibek, contrast the goth-pop vocals of the original ‘Bodyless Material’ with deep dubbed- out techno beats.
– And lastly, the unmistakeable BRENDON MOELLER turns ‘Cheeky’ into an undulating, deep bass driven dub techno stomper
