Review: You might have heard Charlotte De Witte under her previous alias of Raving George, but her new solo project under her own name is a harder, more military take on techno. In fact, "Sehnsucht" itself is about as direct and penetrative as you can get with a techno missile, and the same goes for "My Feeling" and "Enough", the latter addinig in some fine vocal chops for added effect. "Den Ganzen Abend" is a muscular Berghain belter, and you also get a beatless, "Melodic Theme" remix of Sehnsucht"; Coyu remix of "My Feeling" adds to the techno beatings.
Review: !K7 Records launches a new compilation series entitled Kollections: Club which inaugurates the project. The tracklist features artists of the partner labels under the !K7 umbrella such as Turbo, AUS Music, Mobilee, Mister Saturday Night and Hypercolour. Each edition explores a different musical theme but this first installment, naturally, is all about the club! Highlights here include Midland's recent hit "Blush", Maya Jane Coles' funky afterhours tech house jam "Not Listening" (from a few years ago), KiNK's roaring remix of Kerrier District's (Luke Vibert) "Techno Disco" and Lauer's recent feelgood number "Killian" showing off his knack for classic retro vibes like no other.
