baze.djunkiii Charts 05/2018

01. µ-Ziq - Challenge Me Foolish [Planet Mu 400]

02. Robert Görl - The Paris Tapes [Grönland]
DAF's Robert Görl on a solo tip on the only relevant release that came out on Record Store Day 2k18. Built exclusively on an ESQ-1 synthesizer these instrumental, yet beautiful skits were crafted as a musical outlet for Robert Görl after the DAF split in 1986 when he moved to Paris to deal with his faith, pain and sorrow. Whilst the melodic, and highly melancholic, aspects of these nine tunes generally gravitate towards SynthPop there's evident influences of ProtoElectro and possibly echoes of NuBeat in here that make these raw and unfinished skeletal drafts both seductive as well as fascinating in their own right.

03. Posthuman - Metrojak One EP [Chiwax]
Raw, oldskool-reminiscing stuff from Posthuman on Chiwax. Providing anything from jackin' underground Techno to banging Acid and spiralling modulation sequences these tracks are made to keep dancefloors in motion, now and forever.

04. Various Artists - Appendix Double Mixpack E.P. [Fiedel II]
Techno for purists. Eight minimalistic Techno tunes by the likes of Noncompliant, Fiedel, Ron Albrecht, Ausgang and more sum up the essence of the genre in a tool'ish, in parts 'troity, stripped down manner, with each track carvin out its individual character and niche, bringing back what seemed to be a raw, long lost, yet fascinating aspect of Techno as a genre. Highly recommended stuff.

05. DJ Technician / DJ Overdose [Rotterhague Records 001]
Electro for those in the know. Raw, storming and unpolished tunes, two of them provided by DJ Technician, two by DJ Overdose on this relatively fresh label which is bringing back a melodic, abstract and well Phonk-infused take on the subaquatic side of the genre and therefore come together in one of the best Electro records we've come across in quite a while.

06. Trou - Nebelsturm [Depressive Illusions Records]

07. Trou - To The Death [Hallucination Tapes]
