To mark the 50th release on PoleGroup, its owner Oscar Mulero has teamed up with Exium and Reeko to create the Selecci?n Natural project. Beginning with the stepping rhythm and bleak acid of "Expression Gnt", this release defines everything that the Spanish label stands for. There's the pile-driving tribal beats and swooshing filters of "Molecular Genetics", while on "Hox Genes", the trio veer into dense broken beats and wild, psychedelic reverberations. "Biological Fitness" is a straighter, more industrial groove, while a reminder that the Spanish label is nothing if not diverse comes in the shape of banging, tranced out peak-time "Random Mutations". Here's to 50 more releases.
As its title suggests, Digital Bonus is an EP designed for non-vinyl fans of Seleccion Natural, the techno super group comprising Reeko, Tensal and Oscar Mulero. The good news for digital DJs is that this is not something that has been rushed out or released as an afterthought. "Negative Selection" catches them in full flight, with tough, steely drums and pounding kicks delivering the kind of killer, punchy techno that they are best known for. "Struggle for Existence" is better still, with Seleccion Natural combing surging chord sequences with a murky, meat bass that will level sound systems. Overall, it's a great digital selection.
