Finland's finest techno export
joins ranks with Balans. He delivers two outstanding tracks with the trademark Samuli sound: sci-fi, hypnotic space-funk. Both tunes sound futuristic and nostalgic at the same time, with warmth, textures and industrial cold grooves fighting for the foreground. On remix duties we find two Dutch heavyweights hiding behind their puristic techno alter-egos.

MOTE EVOLVER (UK)
"Luke Slater's Mote-Evolver label is enjoying an impressive run of form. Having chalked up one of the standout cuts of the autumn in the shape of Cari Lekebusch's 'Spindizzy' and dropped two floor-shaking futuristic techno megabombs from Ortin Cam ('Carnage' & 'Felt') either side of the new year there can be little doubt that the long-standing label is as relevant now as it ever has been. One of the key players in Finland's techno scene, Samuli Kemppi has a reputation for making forward-thinking, boundary blurring electronic music. Coming up to his tenth year as a producer, his knack for blending the best of the past with cutting edge sounds has seen Samuli appear on labels as diverse as Ovum, Siesta, Komisch and Prologue; providing all the credentials necessary to understand why Samuli's style has consistently drawn attention from all corners. 'Dark Matter' kicks of this EP of ultramodern techno. A futuristic and intense soundscape constructed from straightforward driving beats, low-down humming bass, wobbly stabs and haunting echo-laden effects. A deeply hypnotic record. 'Wormhole' continues the futuristic theme with a mesmerizing concoction of minimized techno ambience that builds slowly through steady pulsing layers of whispered melodies, droning bass and waves of thick, distorted squelchy sounds."
PAKKAS LEVYT (FINLAND)
