Review: The Adana Twins deliver the third edition of their annual compilation series, and Spektrum 3 is the best volume yet. It features swirling, vivid electronic jams from Echonomist and Hadiid - the frosty synths on the latter's "Neuro" is especially memorable - alongside the raw percussion and melodic hooks of Aaaron's "Smile". The pace picks up on Cabaret Nocturne's "Afterlife", with Eleonora's breathy vocals set to a pulsating groove, while DC Salas' "Solar Walk" is a chugging piece of Bordello A Parigi-style Italo. However the centre piece in the compilation is the purring bass and the tight drums of the Adana Twins' own "Nordlys", a killer modern electronic disco workout.
Review: As Innervisions looks forward to its 100th release in 2021, its new 'Limbo' various artists compilation marks a change within the label, club culture and the music industry at large, signifying how it will continue to evolve and adapt. Featuring ascending Bavarian Innellea on the evocative breaks of "The Invention Of Flying", Danish dancefloor drama expert Denis Horvat in fine form as always on "Unikum", Lake People, the alias of prolific Leipzig-based producer Martin Enke, with a typically ethereal outing titled "Divergence" and the ever reliable Aera with the serene futurist electro beats of "Shallows". To quote label boss Dixon regarding the release: 'The world is in limbo and going through a transition. So is Innervisions, building a bridge between how we have done things in the past, and how we want to do things in the future'.
