Review: Chris Roman aka 214 continues his long association with Frustrated Funk thanks to this fine serving of outer space electro. "Growing Old Together" resounds to a resonating, acid-heavy bass and ghostly synths, with 214 moving towards the space occupied by ERP. "Last Dance" is denser, with Roman delivering a murky rhythm that resounds to dark tones and moody textures. Changing tact once again, "Dislocated" puts a focus on bleak, high-paced rhythms and moody bass tones, while on "Voice Check", he reverts to the atmospheric sound of "Growing Old Together", this time with a more reflective approach.

MKS-50_04 - (4:46) 130 BPM
Review: Steven Conner aka Adapta delivers four lean electro tracks for Frustrated Funk. "MKS 50-01" is a clubby affair, led by a surging bass and a tight, wiry rhythm. "02" is based on a similar approach, and while the bass and drums sound more mechanical, it is just as well primed for the dance floor. The third track sees Adapta return to a more purist electro style as furious percussion and crashing 808s encase melodic synths in a dense rhythmic framework. The fourth and final track offers the biggest surprise, with Conner sampling hoover rave riffs and shoehorning them into a tight electro-techno rhythm.

Review: Minimal dancing machine Magda and Chicago's TB Arthur are back as Blotter Trax, on Rotterdam imprint Frustrated Funk. The American pair recently previewed the material featured here as a live set in Berlin's Radialsystem and they serve up more of their distinct style of deep meditative acid and intoxicating downbeat electro on this eponymous release. Go deep underground on the analogue psychedial of "2.1", experience the reductionist sonar transmission of "2.2" or the freeform electronics of "2.3" that will draw you further down the spiral.

Review: Heinrich Dressel is the alias of Italian producer Valerio Lombardozzi, known for his work on labels like Mannequin, MinimalRome and now Frustrated Funk. His debut for the influential Dutch electro label sees him provide two electro tracks and two synth-heavy experimental excursions, first of which is the Goblin-esque "Vocal Intro". The fun begins with the title-track, a playful piece of snare snapping, kooky electro. "Dazzling Timbre" provides another soundtrack to an Italian horror movie never made with music that would fit a distorted dream sequence while "In The Mouth Of Symmetry" is exactly what you'd expect: frustrated funk.

Review: Frustrated Funk deserves kudos for re-releasing some of Gerard Hanson's early ERP work from 2007. Tracks like "Perfume Persuasion", with its brittle beats and eerie synths, show how far apart this alias is from Hanson's work as Convextion. Of even more importance, it also underlines the fact that when it comes to atmospheric electro, few producers come close to him. "Alsoran", with its sleek rhythm and ghostly pads, shimmers its way through the audio spectrum, while "Lament Subrosa" defines electro's futuristic essence, as crisp drums underpin the atmospheric soundtrack to journey to a lost planet beyond our solar system. It's a sublime, stellar collection.

Duplex - "Molecular" (Ovatow Reclock) - (8:46) 121 BPM
Played by: Conforce
Review: Frustrated Funk has been representing underground electro for close to two decades and is sure to be doing the same once the current hype around the music form dissipates. This split release demonstrates exactly why the Dutch imprint is so important. "ZRX" sees Gerard Hanson deliver one of his darkest tracks so far as E.R.P, with a predatory bass underpinning the project's dreamy synths. Apart from showcasing international artists, Frustrated Funk has also done a superb job in shining a spotlight on local talent. This release is no exception, with the hugely underrated Duplex remixed by Klen under his Ovatow guise - the result is a dreamy, downtempo take on "Molecular".

Review: Melvin White has been releasing limited sets of EP's since the late 1990s, back when he was helping Holland's Clone get off their feet with some rocking electro joints from outer space. We haven't seen him in a while, but here he is out of nowhere with a fiery three - tracker for the excellent Frustrated Funk imprint. "Laque" is a gnarly, distorted face melter of a tune with a grizzly backdrop of Drexciyan noise, while "Slowcrash" is smoother and funkier, but nonetheless moody. There's also an unreleased version of "Hidden" that will seriously strike a chord with any Bunker enthusiast. Recommended!

Review: Spesimen aka Andy Crosby has put out material on Pomelo and Libertine as well as his own Infocalypse imprint and now adds Frustrated Funk to the list of underground labels his work appears on. Truth be told, Spesimen's sound is well suited to the Dutch label. "PSIO" is a dense, stepping affair, underpinned by metallic riffs, while on "Satellite", he follows a similar path, albeit this time with an even more menacing undercurrent as the drums pile up on one another. "Astrologer" isn't as intense, and sees Crosby deploy techno chords against the backdrop of tight, snappy percussion. Rounding off this wonderfully moody electro Ep are the eerie pulses of "Harmonik Science"
