Review: To celebrate their 22nd anniversary, Palette Recordings presents its first release in two years from label chief John Tejada. Live Rytm Trax was recently conceived as his new live PA, focusing on just one machine (the Elektron Analog Rytm) and making the most out of its limitations. He performed and captured this wonderful selection of tracks in fellow Los Angeleno Kenny Larkin's studio, which provided the perfect opportunity to add a special sound signature to the songs. Here he relied less on modern computer sequencing methods to capture the spontaneity of the pieces live. The result is a real time and organic experience, with Tejada performing the tracks live with no overdubs or editing.

Review: Los Angeleno techno legend John Tejada has just celebrated 20 years of his famed Palette Recordings and is still in fine form on the Therapy EP. Deep techno on the housier side with a generous serving of soul throughout and it is apparent here. The melodic, Rhythim Is Rhythim inspired first wave funk on "Therapy 2" had us movin' and groovin', as did the dusty warehouse jack of "Therapy 3" which explores the same territory as Rene Pawlowitz. Finally, for something much mellower there's the soothing deep house tones on "Therapy 4" which has earned him releases on labels like Slices Of Life and Kompakt.

Review: American techno legend John Tejada returns on his revered Palette imprint with Performance Review His next one follows up last year's terrific Dead Start Program LP on Kompakt. Each track on here highlights Tejada's artful approach to crafting grooves that blend deep origins with soulful new ground. From the emotive deep techno of the title track delivered in his idiosyncratic style as always, "Promo Committee" sees him do sultry deep house as heard on labels like Poker Flat over the years and even a bit of dark and subterranean dub techno for good measure on "Stack Rating" - this is classic John Tejada all the way!

Infinity Room - (5:55) 127 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Californian techno legend John Tejada is back with a new release on his esteemed Palette imprint. It is a homage to the sample heavy production style of the late '90s, where Tejada has stated that the tracks succeed in limiting the options just creating and manipulating a batch of samples is my happy place'. "Moving 909's" is a seductive expression in deep, late night techno. It then receives a hypnotic rework of the Warp affiliated IDM legends Plaid, who typically take things into advanced and off-kilter realms. Final offering "Infinity Room'' is an upbeat and funky affair, featuring an infectious slap bass and subtle dub techno motifs that are all quite reminiscent of his previous work on labels like Poker Flat and Dessous.

Better Get Used To It - (7:21) 126 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Change The Station - (6:19) 120 BPM
Review: Despite being a veteran of the scene, Arian Leviste remarkably only just drops his solo production debut now. Out on friend and long time collaborator John Tejada's Palette imprint, "Better Get Used To It" serves up three varied tracks of driving drums, synths and bass.

Leviste has been releasing music alongside John Tejada since 1994 but only now lets his first solo effort loose. Throughout this time, he has been exclusively involved in Tejada?s work, helping on projects ranging from EPs on 7th City and Pokerflat to full length albums on Mods and Grooves, Playhouse and of course Palette Recordings. Leviste has in fact made plenty of solo music during those sixteen years but had previously never wanted to release it. The long wait is over now however, as he unleashes three tracks that were more than worth the wait as he made them in his own studio for Palette.

"Senioritis" gets things going with driving drums, blipping basslines and swirling synths. Twisting and turning throughout its entirety, the track swings back and forth amongst carefully crafted bleeps and beeps. "Better Get Used To It" goes deeper, taking the listener on an epic journey with melancholic melodies and sombre atmosphere. Cut up, echoed vocals wash over the downbeat soundscape, completing the dream-like sentiment on the seven and a half minute masterpiece. Turning it up at the close, "Change the Station" is a modular synth experimentation over a jacking rhythm. Pumping beats jostle for position with bouncing hooks in this club focused rider.

With a solo release finally under his belt, Arian Leviste proves that there is more to him than just his work with John Tejada. Having flexed his production muscles so well here, Leviste seems to hint that there is more to come and we therefore, simply better get used to it.

Unanimous Arc - (6:25) 123 BPM
Played by: Olaf Stuut
Review: John Tejada is one of the undisputed kings of melodic techno and on this joint outing with Josh Humphrey, he shows why he enjoys this reputation. The title track sees him expertly mix a pulsing bassline and subtle, hissing percussion with a key-changing, trancey melody line. "Bifur Gates" manages the same balancing act, only on this occasion it's dreamy, deep chords and heavy, swinging drums that provide the expertly-weighted counterbalance. Only "Unanimous Arc" is more skewed in favour of earthy elements, with an insistent acid line niggling its way through the arrangement, but even here an eerie organ riff provides some respite.

Where's The Cable? - (5:20) 127 BPM
Review: Maxwell and Tejada make a welcome diversion on their latest Palette missive. Although "Where's The Cable?" will satisfy those who can't get enough of their detuned hooks, slinky, ice-cold minimal rhythms and bassy climaxes, the most rewarding results occur when they go down a less travelled path. "Whoops There It Is" is a killer warehouse groove, its gurgling acid sequence and grainy FX making it sound like the bastard offspring of Absurd Recordings and Moustache Techno. But the biggest surprise is on the title track, where the duo's floaty melodies weave their way in and out of a purring electro bass and shuffling 808s.

Review: If you ask us, Los Angeles' John Tejada is without a doubt one of the most underrated producers in modern electronic music. Although being based very far south of the U.S.A.'s epicentre of techno; Detroit, he has still nonetheless contributed greatly to the genre's evolution and kept on the pulse for the last 20 years, releasing on labels as diverse as 7th City, Kompakt, Plug Research and of course his own Palette Recordings. Presented here is a 20 tracks collection of cuts from Tejada's back catalog; quite a few with longtime collaborator Arian Leviste. Most tracks featured were never previously available digitally. Highlights (and there's many) are: "Daydreaming Disaster" which goes for broken beat/nu jazz gone electro, funky and energetic hi-tech soul on "Music For Doubles" as well as "In A Free Lane" which is the kind of sexy deep house that could have found its way on to Poker Flat (which he's released on previously, too) sister label Dessous. If that wasn't, enough there is some heavy artillery from his very early days, such as the relentless stomper "Air Raid" which was a surprise highlight.
