Review: We were quite impressed by Emiel van den Dungen's debut EP as Milio, last year's Afterglow. The Dutch producer is clearly a talent on the rise, with a unique musical vision that embraces the full width and depth of the house spectrum. He begins his latest release on Aformation with 'Alround Player', where guest vocalist Sjengsen does his best Stone Roses-era Ian Brown impression over an attractive blend of shuffling, two-step influenced deep house drums, tricksy acid lines and spacey electronics. 'Ave' is a sci-fi house treat that adds waves of intergalactic electronics and stargazing chords to a chunky bassline and punchy drums, while 'Goenavud' sees van den Dungen join the dots between contemporary tech-house and the rushing, minor key melodies and twisted acid motifs of Brown Album-era Orbital.
Review: Emiel van den Dungen (aka Milio) and Raynor de Groot are on a roll at the moment, releasing a new EP every few weeks it seems, The outlet as always is Amsterdam's Atomnation, who now present their End Of Time extended EP, where the duo known together as Tunnelvisions serve up six tracks. It's quite the collection we must say, altogether outlining their impressive take on advanced deep house music. From the slinky and hypnotic trance reductions of opener "Acid Wonderland" and its infectious vocal atop, to the deep and meditative tribal syncopations of "King Cobra" as well as the generous inclusion of previous singles "Waiting For The Morning" and "Mirrored Identities". Ending with the title track, which is a bouncy and neon-lit title groove going down a surprising nu-disco route - in impressive fashion.
Review: Amsterdam's Atomnation return with homeboys Tunnelvisions, who follow up a terrific release a couple of weeks ago by the outfit's other half - Emiel van den Dungen aka Milio. Rest assured he's back with Raynor de Groot on the slinky and hypnotic deep house journey "Waiting For The Morning" which has a melodic and subdued sound that is the perfect sunset soundtrack if we've ever heard one. Followed by the groovy minimal house affair "Mirrored Identities" which borders on Italo disco moments with its vocoder flourishes and all round cosmic aesthetic.
Review: Amsterdam-based Atomnation return with more slinky and hypnotic house courtesy of Emiel van den Dungen aka Milio: one half of the duo Tunnelvisions. His sophomore EP features two tracks which again involved much experimentation with various equipment. There's the bouncy and ethereal tech house of "Moment Of Truth" and its icy dub techno influence, followed by the title track which is more influenced by UK tech house, yet features some sublime Roland 303 acid as featured on his previous EP - altogether taking you deep into the stratosphere.
Review: Dutch duo Tunnelvisions are back on Amsterdam-based Atomnation with their third outing entitled Channel Tropico. Raynor de Groot and Emiel van den Dungen have noticeably extended their repertoire with divergent material. It's an EP that's on rotation in many DJ sets and a must have for both new fans and Tunnelvisions fans from day one. From the emotive electro bass of "Rain Dance", to the sun-kissed balearic boogie-funk of "Culture Shock" or "Tucan" which will hypnotise you into submission with its lush tribal rhythms and sublime chime melody - more impressive material from Atomnation here that's highly recommended.
