Parts in the post, pt. 12

Pharmacom Records comes up with 012 next month, a six track E.P. by Reemo named "Elements" which bashes out some proper Drum'n'Bass here. Although he does not keep up with the latest developments of the scene like Neurofunk, Choppage or Clownstep he delivers quality, most likely for those who refer to the era of Twisted Anger, Source Direct, early Tech Itch and Photek as the climax of the JDB movement. Of course one can claim that the times of the long dark tunnel rides are gone by now and tunes tending to be more than simple dancefloor tools are hardly found or played out these days but for people who've been following JDB for a decade or more by now it's nice to see that there at least a few upcoming producers that do pay respect to JDB history with their output.

Bremen-based Techno-producer Thomas Schumacher, main man behind Spielzeug Schallplatten and the infamous Elektrochemie LK / ELK-project, provides two remixes for the upcoming single of the swedish popgroup A-HA named "Celice" on Zeitgeist. Although this might sound weird at first he manages to not go Pop but fits the vocals properly in a quiet cool ElectroHouse track which is able to rock mainstream- as well as underground-dancefloors.

Northbeatz Audio have put their fourth release in mid-september, a three track 12" by Michael Lambert named "Stalker E.P." which provides new material for lovers of fast'n'hard bangin' Techno. Especially B1-track "Blackbox" with his slightly acidic modulations is one for the headstrong and will cause dancefloor devastation for sure...
