Recently released on Munich's one and only Jahmoni Music imprint is DJ Marcelle's first solo 10" release after a string of vinyl megamix albums put on the circuit via Hans-Joachim Irmler's Klangbad label. Known for the reckless, genre-crossing attitude of her DJ mixes it's no surprise that her solo productions explore terrains beyond conventional club music as well and branch out into the unknown. With "To The Left" the Amsterdam-based artist comes up with a tune comprised of short, mechanical loops which might appeal to followers of genres like Rhythm Industrial, accompanied by a dark, brooding, near static bassline and intense, ghostly sample bits whilst the, also short-looped and sample-bearing, flipside tune "To The Right" enters territorities seemingly highly influenced by the adventurous, often Dancehall-reminiscing beat mayhem provided by the likes of DJ /Rupture or experimental, sound-clashing labels like the former Broklyn Beats. If these names do evoke fond memories you're well recommended to check this one out for sure.
