Soma

Soma Records, founded by Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle, also known as the techno duo Slam, is one of the world's leading independent electronic dance music labels.

It also released the original vinyl version of Daft Punk's track "Da Funk" along with other notable contributions to the electronic dance music scene.

Review: Soma opens its 2024 account with a heads-down debut EP from Diego Oroquieta. "Sabor Mango" starts the release in hypnotic mode, as wave upon wave of chords build and ebb over a dense, rolling groove. "Vaguada Costera" follows in a similar vein, with intense, layered textures unravelling over a slamming rhythm. In contrast, "Jinete sin Cabeza" focuses on a stripped back approach, as Oroquieta drops a driving, metallic rhythm. Rounding off the release in style is "Cuerpo Endomorfo". Centred on tough drums and a relentless groove, augmented by dramatic drops, this combination makes for a lean and highly effective club techno track.

Review: Soma's Collective Process is designed to connect the dots between modern techno's disparate sounds. The tenth edition of the series achieves this feat in style. Aida Arko's "Just One Dream" resounds to a hammering rhythm and hypnotic, textured swirls. Farnaz' contribution, "Surrounded By Fascination" may unfolds to a frenetic pace but it is also musical, thanks to the use of building chords. On "Inner Movements", Fixon & Pushmann deliver a lean, drum-heavy groove that builds and drops seductively thanks to the use of tripped out tones and coruscating riffs. And last but by no means least is the funk bass-led of Philippe Petit's "Evolution".

Review: Like its predecessor, the second volume of Exhibit shines a light on tough, hypnotic techno. Diego Oroquieta's "Friccion" captures the more atmospheric end of this dance floor-focused sound, as wave upon wave of tones build over a rolling groove. A similar approach is audible on Paula Koski's "Fever Coat". Led by doubled-up claps and a steely rhythm, Koski weaves in hypnotic bleeps - the end result is not radically dissimilar to vintage Function. The compilation also showcases a more percussive style. Audible on Michel Lauriola's drum-heavy "Intuition", it finds its fullest expression on the hard-edged loops of Klint's peak-time banger, "The Encounter".

Review: The ninth volume of Collective Process sees Soma bring together new, exciting talent from across the spectrum. BENKLIFA's "Double Sektion" is a barrelling percussive techno track. Led by cavernous kicks and featuring coruscating riffs, it's brilliantly executed peak-time material. Oliver Deutschmann's "Sonntags Im Studio" follows in a similar, slightly more restrained vein, as heavy drums power a linear arrangement. There are some exceptions to this approach - Mist Gasp's "Unclear Skies" is a murky, dense affair and End Train's "Capacity" is an evocative dub techno jam with robotic vocals - but as the intense, splintered rhythm and looped vocal sample of Orion's "Hollow Cause" demonstrate, the main focus of this ninth edition is hard-hitting club techno.

Review: The eighth volume of Collective Process sees Soma bring together some of techno's finest new talent. Auspex gets the compilation off to a frenetic start on "Sediment". Joining the dots between ghetto and looped techno, it's a tough, effective track. Dolby D & MarAxe's "Combat Kalimba" inhabits a similar space. On this occasion however, the focus is on dense, steely percussion and dense drums. On "Bipping", Elyas & Anta further up the pace with a lean, jacking rhythm. It's not all high-speed thrills though. Rey Brennan's "My Brain Is Mush" is a hypnotic tribal workout, while on "Beskar", Janein conjures up layered dub textures.

Scavenger's Daughter - (5:43) 138 BPM
Ambush - (5:04) 142 BPM
Tangled Thorns - (5:09) 140 BPM
Review: Soma continues to support underground music, and the latest artist to feature on the storied label is Ear To Ground boss Gareth Wild. "Deviance Is Bliss (2023 Re-Edit)" is built on hammering kicks and tribal percussion, but it's all about the dramatic synth line that floats through the arrangement. The title track is a more heads-down affair, as Wild drops murky sequences over a steely rhythm. "Ambush" is based on a rolling groove and features a dramatic filter that calls to mind the mood of Envoy's Soma classic "Dark Manoeuvres". On "Tangled Thorns", Wild opts for a more intense approach as jittery sound scapes are conjured up over pounding drums.

Disordine - (5:08) 144 BPM Hot
Plurality - (5:23) 145 BPM
Darshan - (5:21) 143 BPM
Review: Non Reversible follows 2020's Extinction release on Soma with this fine purist techno EP. "Resolute" is a looped groove, featuring dense filters and clicking percussion. On "Disordine", Non Reversible also follows a repetitive approach - this time the rhythm is more sparse and angular with steely percussion hitting hard on each bar. "Plurality" continues this theme, with a focus on a firing groove and filtered organ riffs that swirl in with menace. Meanwhile, "Darshan" sees Non Reversible drop another looped techno groove - on this occasion, it's a rolling affair that resounds to incessant, building filters. If you are looking for a release that realises the spirit of 90s techno in a contemporary approach, your search is over.

Tension - (5:13) 138 BPM Hot
Review: Lewis Fautzi, a prominent figure in the Portuguese techno scene, returns to Soma with his latest EP, 'Properties Specifications'. Having been a mainstay on the Soma roster for a decade, Fautzi has made a name for himself as one of techno's most recognizable acts, with a sound that has evolved over the years while remaining fresh and modern. The EP opens with 'Density', a visceral and hypnotic track that builds with electric synth hooks and subtle drive. 'Severity' takes things down a dark and hypnotic path, guided by polyrhythmic percussion and a pulsating groove. 'Malleability' showcases Fautzi's control over specific elements, creating new depths of rhythm through the track. Finally, 'Tension' closes out the EP with an emphatic bang, featuring thumping low end, crisp percussion, twisted synths, and dark atmospheres. Soma, the titanic Scottish techno label, continues to impress with their consistent output, and Lewis Fautzi's EP is no exception.

Review: Soma welcomes back ANNE, a promising Greek producer, for her debut solo release on the label, the Blossom Tool EP. Since featuring on a Soma Collective Process VA, ANNE's career has been flourishing, with numerous releases on renowned imprints and a busy DJ schedule around the world. With her latest EP, ANNE continues to develop her signature style of deep, groove-focused techno. The EP opens with the title track, Blossom Tool, a catchy and minimalistic composition featuring a contagious beat and understated synth work. Cardigan picks up the tempo but maintains the focus on driving, deep drums and expertly-crafted percussive elements. The aptly-named Hideous is a trippy and hypnotic track that showcases ANNE's skillful use of raw grooves and subtle, sweeping pads. The EP closes with Off Grid, which draws inspiration from early hard groove and combines driving basslines, funky percussion, and clever synth hooks for a fantastic finish.

Be Gentle - (5:14) 141 BPM
Review: After his own Children Of Tomorrow label, Soma is fast becoming the default platform for Arnaud Le Texier. On Elements, he shows why Slam's imprint keeps releasing his music. The title track is a hypnotic roller, with ghostly synths woven into the tribal drums. "Polarisation" is more visceral, with Le Texier fusing noisy riffs with utilitarian hi hats and a driving rhythm. "Assign" maintains this intensity level as he drops a bruising drum track, while the ironically named "Be Gentle" follows a similar path. Building on the approach used on "Assign", he copper-fastens nickel-plated percussion to the driving rhythm, rounding off this release in fine, banging style.
