Parts in the post, pt. 9

Sascha Müller, responsible for the current release "Travelbox / 19" on Intrauterin Recordings, debuted on Northbeatz Audio about four weeks ago with his "Toxic Action E.P.". Three tracks of pounding hard functional Techno purism for the headstrong to be found here - B1 "Peng!" sticking out most as the tune uses a sample of Kraftwerk's legendary "Boing Bumm Tschak". Quality stuff.

German label Zeitgeist licensed Lil' Love's "Little Love" from Italy's Rise Records and provides one for the lovers of cheesy, uplifting House featuring innocent naive female vox. Well, in 99 out of a 100 times I'm not into that kind of music anyway, but this is a big exception from the norm. Can't exactly figure out why I like this but I guess it's out of retrospective reasons as "Little Love" does remind me mind of the innocent hedonism ruling the House in the early 90ies. Ever danced your ass off to tunes like Rozalla's "Everybody's free", Calvin Rotane's "I Believe", Movin Melodies' "P.A.R.T.Y." or House II House's "Did You Ever Ask Me" ? If so you'll be into this 12" for sure.

A bit more of advanced listening music comes from US-based producer Rekall - head of Actualmusic. The first release on his own label is not only limited to 300 copies and looks fresh - clear vinyl with a big, also clear spot of blue in the centre - but reveals four tracks of nice music as well. Breakbeats meet deep space Electronica plus a bit of Electro influence, one experimental Drum'n'Bass track as well. Recommended to those who do like the infamous "Space Night"-compilations and video animation released by Elektrolux. There's no distribution neither in Germany nor Europe yet but I hope this'll change soon so that we'd be able to stock that at Otaku Records in the near future.
