Review: Next up on Coyu's label is a compilation that really lives up to its title. _Power starts and finishes with tracks from GLIA - the grungy, vocal-led "2x Gola" and the eerie, stepping "Laws Of Physics And Karma" - while on "External Body" Marina George lays down a tough acid track. The compilation moves a few notches in the intensity levels with Ana Lilia's pounding "In Too Deep" and the wild ghetto stomp of Zaphy's "Wein". However, _Power never strays into senselessly banging territory and Rouge delivers a superb, ebm-style workout on "Prism" and Cora's "Exit" is a linear tribal track that resounds to lean, steely percussion.
Review: Ostgut's sister label continues its voyage into the grey area between the abstract and the main floor with a release that may come to be merely known as 'hyphens'. While not completely forsaking the dance floor, "Contact", is all dark drones and shattered glass percussion riding the dark backing rhythm, while "Aggregate" veers back towards club usage with its hammering drums, razor sharp percussion and concrete beats. "Osmium" also shows that there is more common ground between the abstract and the dance floor with filtered percussion and acidic bass licks providing all of the action, before "Herschel" dips back into the abstract with dreamy synths and breathy vocals underpinned by subtle broken beats.
