Compiling the tracks from both of Matta's vinyl records for Ad Noiseam, their appraised remix for Hecq, two older tunes and a brand new one, "Prototype" is a way to look at the short but already very rich past of this British duo. The ten tracks of this CD confirm not only the sheer efficiency of Matta's material, but also its very detailed, deep and sharp nature. A colossal, multifaceted and remarkable first full-length snapshot for this rising act. (Get this on CD / as mp3)
Beatsmith extraordinaire and relentless live performer Karsten Pflum delivers with his mysterious "Nemo Loon" his take at the dubstep sound. Towering, imposing, and yet extremely dynamic and percussive, the four tracks on this EP are obviously not the output of a newcomer, but of an experimented producer. Marrying catchy melodies, tectonic bass lines and sharp drums, "Nemo Loon" is both a spatial, mystic monolith and a heavy, head-nodding alien creation. Get this on 12" / as mp3

It's clean, it's sharp, and it invokes images of futuristic, spacious constructions. For his first full-length album, breakcore artist Techdiff leaves the dancefloor anthems behind and demonstrates an insolent talent for ultra-edited, highly dynamic tracks mixing break beats, electronica and sound design. Myriad of details and idea flow together in this beast of a work, which demonstrates (as his label mate Ruby My Dear also did recently) that there's much hope to be had in this new wave of breakcore producer. This clearly doesn't sound like anything this genre has ever produced in the past, but proves to be an impressive milestone for this artist and this style. Get this on CD / as digital files.

We're here listening to an album in the truest sense of the word, a guided adventure through an adventurous and perfectly put together concept. (get this on CD / as digital file)
