Press Info:
Recoil Selected, a brand new selection of classic Recoil tracks will be released on 19 April 2010. The track listing has been chosen by Alan Wilder who explains: “The collection is made up of my personal favourites, remastered and edited together into what I consider a cohesive and total listening experience.”

Recoil Selected will be available as a single CD, double pack CD, limited edition 4 x vinyl box plus a limited edition deluxe 4 disc box set which is exclusively available from Mute Bank.

The double CD, vinyl box and deluxe box set features many new remixes and alternative versions, chosen and edited together by Alan Wilder and Paul Kendall, who has worked with Wilder for the past 10 years. The album features a varied selection of vocalists including Diamanda Galás, Joe Richardson, Douglas McCarthy, Samantha Coerbell, Toni Halliday and Maggie Estep.

In support of the album, Recoil has announced details of an Events tour, A Strange Hour with Alan Wilder & Paul Kendall, with dates across Europe and in the US between March & May. Each date promises to be a unique event – with special guests – and these live presentations mark the first time Recoil has ventured out of the studio.

Alan Wilder’s years in the music industry have seen him go from studio assistant to session keyboard player, but it was his 14 years as a member of Depeche Mode where he really honed his skills. With his attention to detail in the studio, Wilder pushed the boundaries even within the restrictive climate of commercial pop. As an antidote to the demands of the Mode, his studio project Recoil was born in the mid-eighties. Two albums were released: ‘Hydrology’ (1988) and ‘Bloodline’ (1990) both giving an indication of his expanding horizons. After his departure from Depeche Mode in 1995, Wilder resurrected Recoil full-time and has since released ‘Unsound Methods’ (1997), ‘Liquid’ (2000) and most recently ‘subHuman’ (2007).

new MOTE: Submerge – Black Mamba EP (MOTE016)

Artist:
Submerge

Title:
Black Mamba EP

Label:
Mote-Evolver

Cat#:
MOTE016

Release Date:
05. April 2010

Format:
12″ & digital downloads

Tracklist:
01 Black Mamba
02 J-XX

Info :
Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver stands tall amongst its peers as the labels’ consistently high quality output maintains their current run of form. With standout cuts from scene legends Cari Lekebusch and Ortin Cam still fresh in the memory and a stunning EP of ultramodern techno from Finland’s Samuli Kemppi about to drop, the label is pricking up ears with its varied and highly impactful repertoire.

One of the most exciting new techno artists to emerge out of USA in recent times, Submerge (AKA Orlando Solis) has built his reputation on being an eclectic and innovative producer capable of blending all styles of techno to create his signature sound. Currently drawing praise for his recent 2012 EP on his own Impact Mechanics label, Submerge is flying the flag for a new wave of producers bringing fresh energy and ideas in to the techno scene.

Title track Black Mamba leads off the EP with a bang. Bristling with energy and intensity, this is a standout peak-time cut that combines pounding beats, pulsing acid stabs, futuristic phaser effects, chopped up vocals and a riveting breakdown.

On the flip J-XX shows another side of Submerge?s production palette with its steady, building arrangement making for a more linear vibe. Crunchy beats and swirling effects add a feeling of rawness to compliment the tense powerful groove.

new A.Mochi release on Len Faki’s label Figure

Artist:
A.Mochi

Title:
Through The Never

Label:
Figure

Cat#:
Figure 025

Release Date:
out now

Format:
12″ & digital downloads

Tracklist:
01 Through The Never
02 Climbing Exercise
03 White Out

Track 03 is digital-only!

Info :
Japan’s top techno export Akihiro Mochizuki returns for his third EP on Figure, and he’s absolutely on top form! After the heavy, rolling maneuvers of his ‘Black Out’ EP last year, this new 3 track installment leaves no question as to Mochi’s talents.

Throwing us into the deep end with ‘Through The Never’, a pitching, rushing surge of full frontal bass pressure passes through the void. Climbing and peaking in classic Mochi stlye, the tension mounts and then subsides in a series of intense
builds.

On the flip the literally-titled ‘Climbing Exercise’ slams the energy even deeper to the floor. Brooding, cataclysmic and foreboding, this darkroom builder employs spooky synths and weird pitching machines as it ascends through your consciousness.

A digital bonus track is included in the form of ‘White Out’ – perhaps the darker brother of last year’s EP on Figure 19!? Tectonic drums and careful builds play with the tension as a reverb filled room slowly expands and contracts….

Slam: Big room techno – Huge
