Review: A most reliable producer out of Leeds, Adam Pits finds himself back in the mix with Desert Sound Colony, Bushwacka! and Breaka over at Holding Hands. A safe haven for contemporary breaks and electro to oldskool styles and new age throwbacks, Adam Pits sends in three acid-vibing, bleep generation UK techno cuts that stem way back into the rave era. Keeping it housey and 90s in "Variation 1", Pits carves out a skippy, jungle flecked remake in "Variation 2", uping the tempo and switching the motif. Throwing down some enigmatic new age tricks in "Variation 3" - the bassline here on this one is tight. And for that mega dub-garage number, look no further than the Tape Fear remix.
Review: New label outta Bristol, Be Told Lies, has emerged! Its debut release presents a four track various artist EP throwing some extra light on four select producers. Adam Pits delivers some techy, submerged trance with "Spooka Troopa" while Anderson looks to classic midwest techno and electro sounds in the new age and cloudy, "Julip". Find some late-80s UK acid references in Urulu's "Sidecar" (think Yello), with Yushh getting stripped back, urban and atmospheric in "I'm Fraam Laandaan M9".
Review: Holding Hands boss Desert Sound Colony (DSC) has stated that he has known Adam Pits for a long time. First as a fellow student (a few years below him) at high school, and later at a University in Leeds that they both attended. He is from the same crew as Breaka (Beat Machine/Stretchy Dance) so there must be something in the water up there DSC declares - because 'these guys are producing the best shit in town right now'. UK bass and electro crossover in bold fashion on "Socket Power", which is followed by an eerie darkside perspective by Junq up next - perfect for the stoned ride home on the night bus.
