I haven't heard EG's podcast yet. I am only judging the project on the first 10" which was OKish. the main reason why i am disappointed is because patrick pulsinger is involved and he did some really amazing music on his own for cheap, r&s etc during the 90s. in EG he is only one of three people, so maybe his voice isn't as loud!

ok i've listened to this elektro guzzi album twice today and damn. it is excellent. i guess i'm the type of person who thinks that conceptually this type of thing is a good idea to begin with (no offense to minimal/berghain-style techno) but usually bands like this make records that are a lot less interesting than this one

and i've been finding it harder to say that about any new techno recently.
i'm the complete opposite -- i'm finding techno to be very good lately! some stuff i've been feeling:
forward strategy group - combat codes (rawsome car-crusher techno, sounds as if neubauten ca "yu gung" released a record on downwards. i like how industrial influences are becoming more and more pronounced recently)darko esser - songs for a real winter tadeo - series 03d knox - looking through your eyessamuel l session - inner city dust (heavy mid 90s the advent style techno)samuli kempii - kosmos epdj bone - my sunday 10"dino sabatini - daughter of phorcys (the ghosts of old mika vainio midi sequences lurk in these trax)perc - mandrake
then there's the sandwell district stuff, the last oni ayhun record, the terrance dixon record youtube'd above, the dvs1 thing (the b-side is even better btw), the brendan moeller thing on echochord, the excellent schermate label from italy -- just an overwhelming number of decent records coming out! and i'm sure just as many that i don't know about or have yet to discover. i think house and techno are becoming more distinct from each other again, techno trax are getting ruffer, more overdriven and industrial, taking influence from elsewhere (axis, sahko, fragile records, claude young, surgeon, early aphex, autechre, r&s etc) instead of relying on the same chain reaction/basic channel tropes, tempos are going up as house tempos are going down, you always read big european djs like steffi or tama sumo talking about a definite axis point in their sets where they will switch from house to techno as opposed to mixing it all together as they may've done maybe 2 or 3 or 4 years ago... maybe i'm talking out of my ass here and someone is gonna tell me that all those records are crap i dunno, but i'm honestly pretty excited about techno atm

new deepchord is amazing, theyve done a feelgood summer record! Literally the polar opposite of coldest season etc and the first dub techno record ive actually wanted to play out in aeons. BCN dub on constant rotation after coming back form sonar where I heard watery Jamie Jones tech houses version of summer a few too many times

yes, the new Hood is really, really great. r1o, it seems like you would be into it from the stuff you mention. thanks for all those recs, will definitely be checking some of those out.the new Deepchord is a lot warmer and more varied than coldest season, haven't gotten a chance to listen to it enough yet, but i'm liking it a lot.

Hey (r1o natsume), totally agree with you! I love the way that techno has become more industrial as you say.. I run the Komisch label, which samuli kemppi's 'kosmos' ep is released on, so thanks for supporting us! It is also funny that this idea of 'industrial' is with us again.. peter van hoesen who also releases on Komisch is a big new beat fan and samuli has a background in 90s techno. maybe it's because we are all a bit older . . but thank you again for the support!

Gota say I was pretty bummed about the state of techno in recent years untill I found October: http://sonicrouter.blogspot.com/2009/04/interview-october-caravan_16.html we interviewed him and he did a quality mix way back last year. He had that free moving kinda organic, raw flow where you didn't quite know what was gonna happen next when a genre full of people where just doing it so tracky and predictable. He's done loads of killer mixes since too...
Kyle Hall and Omar-S have been doing it for me too, no idea how they keep it so lo-fi and loose and keep that dance floor bump. Kassem Mosse has been sounding hot as well but I need to explore that more.

I've stated my great fondness for Richard Davis before on ILM, and likewise my excitement that he released a new EP recently. Having just acquired that EP ("What You Are" on his own offshoot label, Safer), I can say that this record is fabulous!

djkomisch, been loving the komisch releases so far.
i think whats perceived as an industrial boom has been helped hugely by the berghain factor but what seems to be a thread running through a lot of the producers is that they have come back to dance music from working in other soundscapey/ambient/experimental music after a few years away from the dancefloor (myself included). Personally I feel theres something about creating a more populis functional piece of music to be used in this setting thats a bit more instantly fulfilling though maybe thats my narcissistic impulses coming out
― straightola, Monday, 12 July 2010 14:54 (2 years ago) Permalink
i think spending more and more time away from the internet and dance clubs has also made me feel 'eh' about much techno, but r1o, the FSG stuff is pretty good, am listening now. i also have been liking what is coming out on Rodz-Konez.
on the other hand, this is probably my favorite band right now:
dark synth-punk....industrial veins here and there.....

that narcisse stuff is pretty rad! is there a full length?
the robert hood is also a pretty good listen, and i've been trying to find a ton of stuff that r1o listed but was relatively unsuccessful. an industrial techno revival sounds amazing tho. so far i've just noticed a massive acid comeback, but people tell me that tends to go in cycles and never really sticks around for too long.
what's that milky disco 3 like?

As far as Wolf and Lamb go, its a well done combination of dub techno and deep house?
I listen to a lot from both sub genres (Luke Hess, Quantec, that kind of thing) and I like their style?
Its a lot sexier than what Sven Weisemann does, as an example.

― plax (ico), Friday, 16 July 2010 18:05 (2 years ago) Permalink
In particular I was referring to the broader wolf+lamb label roster (incl. Zev, Gadi, Lee Curtiss, Soul Clap, etc.)Certainly there's good stuff here and there (I don't know if Nicolas Jaar counts, but he's among the better of it) but I find so much of it to be totally dull and lifeless (and a lot of the stuff that isn't tends to become so after awhile). This is all to say, I guess, that I can't see how people can, at their parties for, instance, listen to this stuff all night.
I think the comparison with Sven Weisemann is a bit out of left field, they ultimately have very little in common. He makes great music to just sit back and relax to: restrained and elegant, whereas W+L is just, well, not.
