Press Info (German):
Die Selected-Crew – heute representen Frederic. back to back mit Gutter, MCNZI und Vermeer – holt sich Clara Cuvé von Stock 5 ins Haus, die mit einer schon fast provozierend darken, terrortechigen Selection die Crowd in Atem hält. Die ganze Gang irgendwie stilistisch einzuordnen und somit zu pidgeonholen wäre verschwendete Zeit. Gut gemachte Beats und passende Platten zu finden und zu kombinieren sind nämlich die Spezialitäten des Hauses. Zum einen gibt es den trappenden, rappenden MCNZI … wohingegen Frederic. und Gutter mit ihrem energetischen, treibenden Sound einfach die Dampfwalze auf den Floor entfesseln. Vermeer kombiniert in seinem atmosphärischen Sound einzigartige Geräuschkulissen mit bösen und drückenden Bässen.

Press Info:
First albums are points of self-assessment for serious artists, and following his ‘Shatterproof’ full-length, MANHIGH label head Henning Baer returns with ‘Rigger’, a full EP of new production and refined directions. Dank, squelching electronics in the opener ‘Corp’ overlay a dark ambient atmosphere with evolving, pointillistic details, favorably recalling his early accomplishments on Sonic Groove. The title track combines subtlety with force, its slowly-tweaked acid line unspooling over grinding, corroded drums in relentless slow motion, with insistent percussion pushing ever onwards. Acidic brutality returns on ‘Variant of A’, which wallows in filter feedback over stomping two-beat kick patterns and lashing claps. Closer ‘No Mind’ is caked in accumulating layers of distortion centering on the off-beat kicks; the disease of decay spreads further to the hi-hats and threatens to engulf the circling sequences that anchor the track’s midrange, with an eerily distant steam blast and half-time bleeps enforcing the track’s militant, industrial character.

Press Info:
Boston 168 return to BPitch Berlin with an EP that promises no less than a proper »909 Therapy« in three cathartic sessions. Hot on the heels of their debut single »Drops In Heaven« for Ellen Allien’s label, the Italian duo follow up with three even more rave-inspired pieces of cosmic techno. Theirs is not the kind therapy that will have you lie down on a couch and open up about your past, but the sort that will have you move every fibre of your body and embrace the here and now.

The A-side »909 Therapy« is perhaps Sergio Pace and Vincenzo Ferramosca’s most raw-sounding production yet: a booming kickdrum serves as the blank slate for the endless possibilities of the legendary Roland drum machine which the two producers here use with the playfulness and authority of a good jazz drummer – cool and reserved on the outside, hot and passionate on the inside. The stuttering chords that hint at classic Belgian rave material, and which are at times layered or punctuated by Boston 168’s piercing trademark acid sounds, lend even more explosiveness to this track which encapsulates the vitality of a live improvisation in a dense seven minute trip.

Also »Hypnotic States« and »Daydreams« are true to their titles. The former track combines a pulsating kickdrum with subtle, ornamental percussive work and a floating melody that is oozing with melancholy. It is the very essence of the Boston 168 sound that unfolds here over the course of a little less than six minutes. Where »Hypnotic States« works with ominous soundscapes and disembodied vocals to create an eerie atmosphere, »Daydreams« highlights the more cheerful side of the Turin-based duo’s understanding of techno. Like the two other pieces, it draws heavily on the psychedelic qualities of 90s rave culture, however its intertwining melodies at times seem to develop a life of their own. It is a track abundant with joy, nervous anticipation and endless thrills and thus the best possible outcome for a thorough »909 Therapy« like provided by Boston 168 on their second BPitch Berlin release.
