Review: No strangers to working together, Shaun Reeves, co-head of Visionquest, is a Detroiter turned Berliner who has been at the forefront of the industry for over a decade. Likewise, Frenchman DJ W!LD is a time tested veteran of the game who runs two labels, the W label and DAILYCID. They team up for some killer jams on the Bag Of Bones EP, originally released last year on vinyl and now getting a worthy issue on digital format. From the lean and subtle afterhours hypnotism of "Taima",to the dusty and evocative mood music of "Chronicles Of Narnia" and ending with the contemplative microhouse of "Purple Urkle" - this is a terrific release that sees the pair return to their underground roots in true style.
Review: The fast-rising electro label drops a fine split release. First up are Robyrt Hecht & Int Main with a brace of underground cuts. "Waste" resounds to a menacing bass, computer game-style tonal shifts and robotic vocals and has echoes of Murder Capital's output. "Today" is based on a similar approach, albeit with glitchy percussion set to the shuffling 808s, while on "Meta-Measure", the pair decide to juxtapose synth squalls with acidic sequences and sharp metallic drums. Storied electro producer Wibo 'W1b0' Lammerts is up next, with the heavy rhythm and building synths of "Small Increments", while on "No Souls Below The Radar", the Dutch artist goes for a swaggering groove that's full of mesmerising synths.
