Rough and raw house sounds melt together with driving drums, a bit of acid and lo-fi sound design. Keep reading

Recent Records of the Week #47 // 2015

Highlights of the WeekRecent Records


The second release on Amsterdam based label Taped Artifact was produced by Natan H. The american already had some output on labels like ManMakeMusic, Altered Moods Recordings and Finale Sessions, always showing his love for the rawer and deeper side of house music. The EP is opened by “Erklingen Dub”, raw drums and a powerful bassline surround the overpowered kicks and function as the scaffold for the rough sound layers that flutter through the track constantly. The opening-track is deep and and bursting with energy at the same time, generating a spacious and mysterious atmosphere. “Te Aro” ends the a-side, consisting of a crackling bassline and swinging synth sounds. Acid in between combined with hard claps accentuate the feeling of darkness. This dub track brings light into the dark, or is it the other way around? We are not quite sure, but what we are sure about is the fact that this production is exciting all the way. On the flip side “Submission” offers a calm and rough dub interpretation. Strings float around, crisp drums and soft pads end up in a great groove. Smartly used breaks create time to introduce new sounds and variations and make this one simply beautiful. It has everything a deep track needs. “Orthogonal”, the last track of TA002 is a slow bouncer. Once again pounding kicks, spacious layers and crisp kicks create a raw sounding house track. Lots of reverb and echo is used to extend every part of the tune and make them last forever. This EP might not offer various styles, but it offers four outstanding tracks from the fields of raw house music. The tracks seem a bit similar at first, but if you take your time and listen closer you get to know how specific and diverse every single track is. The “Erklingen EP” once again shows Natan’s impressive talent for raw and organic sounding tunes. He’s one of the newer producers out there that should be on everybody’s list, simply smart dub and house music throughout his entire discography so far.

There’s nothing you have to say about Mr. G, he’s a legend when it comes to energetic house and techno tracks for years now. That’s why we won’t introduce him, if you don’t know him go and educate yourself. The “Infrastructure EP” offers you three typical Mr. G cuts. “Guiness Punch (Xtra Wray Dub)” is the opening track on this EP. Dreamful chords get backed by a heavy sounding bassline and melancholic vocals. Decent snares, organic claps and Mr. G’s signature rides once again create the unique sound everyone knows. The bounce of the track is outstanding, the kicks are on point and the arrangement keeps things simple. It seems so easy, but it’s so hard to create tracks like this and Colin McBean is one of the few that master this art form. “Give Thanx!” opens the b-side. This track is made for dark basement clubs with it’s pounding acid sounds jumping through the entire track, threatening you. This is one hell of an acid bomb, fitting every techno set perfectly. “Give Thanx!” is followed by “Invert?”. The second track on the b-side as well takes care of the dark & dusty side of electronic music. The soulful vocal in combination with the shuffled layers and pads is very special and evolves into a nice mix between house and techno. “Invert?” once again shows the versatility that Mr. G has. The arrangements are simple, not too many sounds are used, but somehow he always creates his signature sound that most of the time crosses borders. Combining acid and soul, hip hop and techno, house and disco. Everything is possible when Colin sits down behind his machines. With the “Infrastructure EP” he once again has proven that he is an impressive producer for house and techno music these days.
