Techno Die Hards zullen hier misschien even van opkijken maar het is echt waar. Release 119 op het Berlijnse label Bpitch Control komt uit London en is geproduceerd door, na "The MFA" de 2e Engelsman in korte tijd, Mark Broom. Wanneer de 12-inch precies uitkomt is ons niet bekend, wel kan je vanaf de website samples beluisteren. Er komen 3 tracks op de plaat (Real Player): A1 Twenty Nine (black mix) , B1 Together , B2 Rock n Roller. Wat vinden jullie van de tracks?
the bpitch control network is getting ready to realign the world. after mfa, the new target is again england: on his ep "twenty nine", mark broom, legendary techno head and frontrunner in classic, deep and minimal techno since 1994, shows an inclination to add a new sound piece to the berlin sonic mosaic. the history? ellen allien found the homonymous 7" through a small internet distributor and it became her companion for the summer. but unfortunately the 7" soon became un-playable and couldn't got hold of anymore. so ellen allien invited mark broom to join the label and to release here. and this isn't just some old stuff turned new:
on the title track "twenty nine" techno is re-arranged in a grand gesture by embracing electronica and spheric soundscapes. in that respect, england is still ahead of us, for no one has ever had the guts to try this so concretely and aggressively. but since techno is the global village, who cares if detroit and london aren't on the same continent.
"together" primarily aims at the distribution of serotonin before it gets to your feet - but once it does, it lasts. to hell with the november drizzle…
"rock'n'roller" reminds of surreal dreams of an acid-driven robot where the four tends to get stuck.
