World Of The Wars (Wolfgang Tillmans remix) - (7:51) 127 BPM
Review: Lost Souls Of Saturn - the unlikely pairing of Seth Troxler and Phil Moffa - are preparing their debut album for release in June for R&S. They're searching for signs from another dimension and channelling this into a higher consciousness, stating that inspiration came from a broad range of subjects not limited to art, film, literature and the esoteric - through to science and even sci-fi. This is all merged into an inextricably linked whole, wrapped-up in a philosophy of their own making. All these facets certainly do make their way into the dense minimal journey that is "Holes In The Holoverse", followed by the tripped-out deep techno of "World Of The Wars" which is followed up by a remix of Turner prize winning artist and photographer Wolfgang Tillmans.
Review: Inspired by Sun Ra and Philip K Dick, Lost Souls of Saturn is the vehicle for Seth Troxler and Phil Moffa's more esoteric dance floor musings. These tracks, taken from their debut album from earlier this year - and in some instances here in extended form - show just how far down the rabbit hole the duo go. "Divine Plane (M?ditation Des Enfants)" is a dreamy, wispy affair, with cosmic meandering unravelling over a tight rhythm, while on "Lunarvision", rain forest warbles accompany deeper sound scapes. While the extended take on "Lost Souls of Saturn" is a more grimy affair, led by gurgling acid, tripped out discordance and scuffled beats, the late night sax squalls of "Midnight Karma" shows that this is a proper out-there project.
Review: 10 years deep and counting; DJ Hybrid's Audio Addict are celebrating the big milestone with a whole brace of absurd updates on already slamming originals. Digging deep over the archives, the likes of Kastro, Hexa, Rantic, Dunk, Shayper, Zoro, Epicentre and many more all get their grubby mitts on some serious Audio Addict classics. Highlights include Zoro's brilliantly bubblesome old school twist on DJ Hybrid's 'Mix & Blend', Crossy's spacefunk bass grunts on his remix of Kartoon's 'Soundboy Surrender' and Epicentre's insane twists and touches on his remix of Scattyone's 'Give It To Me'. And that's just the tip of the remix iceberg. Huge shouts to Audio Addict for 10 years of ardent, loyal service!
Review: Founded by DJ Hybrid, one of the hardest working men in the last 10 years of jungle, Audio Addict has been a vital platform for many artists to breakthrough. Kumarachi, Agro, Scartip, RMS, Section, Jaybee and many more enjoyed early cuts on the label, who've always had an open remit that's stretched from heavier dancefloor cuts to deeper, more junglist tunes. Recently rebooted with a new plan and re-generated crew, the label now look back over many killer cuts from last decade. Highlights include the sample-smashing 'Back To Reality' (RMS) , the epic disco feels of 'All You Need To Know' (Bassface Sascha & Fiendsoul) and the bleepy, low-slung stepper 'My Days Are Cold' (Agro). Here's to another 10 years.
Review: Having conducted his own glassy-eyed sunrise s?ance, Vintage Music main man Sunner Soul has successfully summoned the "Spirits of the Boogie" for a hazy early morning dance. Perhaps the most alluring of these "spirits" is opener "Constanera Montana", a vibraphone sporting shuffle through drowsy Rhodes chords and metronomic beats, though the heavy and low-slung "The Bright Day" and all-action electrofunk workout "Voice of Saturn" run it close. Elsewhere, "Sprit of the Boogie" is a bass-heavy disco-funk party jam smothered in high-grade horn lines and brilliant bass guitar, while "Jazzy Patterns (Raw Edit)" is an accurately titled blend of dusty machine drums, jazz samples and crazy special effects.
