Video: Vaetxh – Mass by Henning M. Lederer

Made to promote the debut album from Vaetxh entitled Mass, on Canadian label King Deluxe remixes by Dead Fader, Culprate, Woulg, Circuit Bent and Subjex. Well they say album, this release totals 7 tracks with 2 being original Vaetxh tracks and the other 5 remixes from the above artists although we’re not complaining. This is a visually stunning video, monochrome and hypnotic it’s style compliments the finely produced industrial bass electronica of Vaetxh you can listen to the full previews here.

Available to buy now from here.

 

Mix: The Irish Archives – Automatic Tasty Live

From our contributer Amy Flex who has been busy collecting DJ and live sets for quite some time now, she plans to release one a week through her new soundcloud project titled ‘The Irish Archives’ and begins in style with this live MPC set from Acroplane’s Automatic Tasty. 

Over the last 4 years, for me, an Automatic Tasty set is something I will always look forward to. But being confined as an analogue electronic artist, whether it be by travel limitations, lack of people to help you carry and move kilo after kilo of analogue gear and cables, or even something as simple as power supply, I was delighted to see him venture away from full live sets and groove along on his MPC over on Rathlin Island. Something this man does so naturally it’s probably unnatural!

Sadly, the recording quality of this set isn’t great, but I am chuffed to have it recorded and chuffed that Auto Tasty doesn’t mind you lot hearing it too! Hope you lot enjoy it

Out Now: Voltek – Power Tools (Acroplane Recordings)

Sam Barker aka Voltek’s first release was on one of the premier net-labels to release experimental electronic music, Net-Lab, before moving Berlin way where he’s now firmly instilled in the Leisure System crew. There’s barely been any releases from him aside from his 2006 Net-Lab album but In the interim there’s been a wealth of audio available to listen to on his website which has been teasing me for a while. Thankfully Acroplane Recordings have taken it upon themselves to rectify that situation, releasing a full album of Voltek’s productions, a mixture of rough beats, snares and soundcapes. Highly recommended.  

Available to buy now from Boomkat and Juno and here’s my personal favourite from the release, further previews are available on Acroplane’s Soundcloud here.
