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: Renowned for releases on DFA, !K7, Rong and Clone amongst others, DJ Kaos has spread his Chicago infused house message to the whole world. Now, on German imprint Diynamic, he drops a deep and grooving electronic workout in "Hard to Earn". Sharing this exclusive release is a special collaboration between Holger Zilske and Daso who turn in a wonderfully unique and twisted number in the form of "Westbound". Finishing the release, Solomun ties in a low-slung, groove-led rework of "Hard to Earn".
