Review: DJ Loser – DJ Loser – Bliq

HouseReviews

Bliq showcasts DJ Loser’s self titled debut as their 15th release so far. If you take a closer look you will notice that the label already was a platform for many talents that debuted their first physical release on. This time you hear 4 powerful tracks on the a- and b-side, with 3 original tracks and 1 remix by Seixlack. Rough and raw house sounds melt together with driving drums, a bit of acid and lo-fi sound design. Keep reading

Apollo, the second release on Olympos, shapes the profile of the Greek based label another time. 4 deep and melodic techno anthems stay anonymous again.

Review: Unknown Artist – Apollo – Olympos

HouseReviewsTechno

The second release from Olympos is called “Apollo” and once again delivers a nice variety of contemporary club tracks from the fields of house and techno. Apollo is the god of light, cure and spring in Greek mythology to bring you the title a bit closer. As usual the artist behind this EP stays unknown for now, nevertheless it’s obvious that whoever it is really has some great sense for crafting sharp and powerful rhythms. After the strong first release the label from Greek keeps up his great effort and shapes his profile once more. Keep reading

Simon Ferdinand - Kingsize - Polycarp

Review: Simon Ferdinand – Kingsize EP – Polycarp

HouseReviews

The “Kingsize EP” is the debut release on Simon Ferdinand’s very own and freshly founded Polycarp Records imprint. With several releases on labels like Night Drive Music, Landed Records and Frank Music he already put his name on the map. Now with his new label he has a proper foundation to release his own tracks and works from friends and artists that match his idea or share his vision of contemporary house music. With the “Kingsize EP” he sticks to his sound with loop-based and clearly structured club tracks that are still playful and come with a certain drive. The first release is a solid package of three original tracks and a decent Map.ache remix off the title track. Keep reading

Interstate - Untitled EP - Whytenumbers

Review: Interstate – Untitled EP – Whytenumbers

HouseReviews

Interstate’s Untitled EP marks the first release for the newly founded Whytenumbers label. The strange spelling of “whyte” is a small hint to the main label it belongs to, we are talking about Blaqnumbers of course. While Blaqnumbers always played with a bit of downtempo and hip hop elements in combination with raw and deep house sounds, Whytenumbers now gets a bit more experimental and takes those elements more serious, as well as serving a bit of uptempo house as well. Interstate’s EP clearly depicts a strong relationship to early hip hop and electronic influences throughout. Four sublime tracks came across the road and build a great debut release for the Whytenumbers imprint. Keep reading

Trux - Trux - Office Recordings

Review: Trux – Trux – Office Recordings

HouseReviewsTechno

Office Recordings’ 7th release came out a couple of days ago, displaying a brand new style of contemporary music. With catalogue nr. 7 by Baaz’s very own Berlin based imprint it’s not about club playtime, this release is for connoisseurs of experimental and left field house music and ambient fans. The producer behind this project Trux remains a mystery, no information can be found. The self titled Trux release comes as a kind of mini LP with eight tracks, four on the a-side and four on the b-side. A nice mix between obscure house and free floating ambient add a whole new sound idea to the label’s earlier releases. Again the artwork keeps up with the music in terms of quality, created by the highly talented Super Quiet. Keep reading
