GrooveSource Cycle 185

Pre-Release Date: 12/29/2009
General Release Date: 1/19/2010

SCREC018 – Recon 22 “Crosshairs EP” Solar Cathedral – TECHNO
Solar Cathedral Recordings proudly debuts Minneapolis' Recon 22 by signing the Crosshairs EP for their imprint's 18th release. With a catalog of music that approaches the dance floor from a slew of different angles this American techno label has been keeping its supporter's on their toes by delivering tunes that sound absolutely nothing like anything they've previously released. Since their launch in 2007 SCREC has consistently maintained an unsuspecting formula & this 3 tracker is delivered with the same malicious intent.

"S & M" is a Huntemann'esque burner that's stripped down to the basics rendering itself as the perfect late night/early morning tool laced with sexy vocal stabs & drifting sounds that captivate & hypnotize while "Centipede" turns up the heat with a ripping bass heavy synth line that is guaranteed to set off even the most timid of rooms. "Bad Activity" seems to combine the energy & personality of both "S & M" & "Centipede" with a twist that's palatable for a broad audience of DJ's, producers & listeners from all walks of techno.

MIZ042 – Various Artists “ZumoBeatz: 2009 Review” Mizumo Music – ELECTRO HOUSE
With 40 releases and 100 artists & remixers, 2009 was a strong and comprehensive year for Mizumo Music. This compilation is a selection of both the label's top picks as well as the favorites of the artists, DJs and followers of Mizumo Music for 2009.

DFD021 – e:machinery “Against The World” Design Forms – TECHNO
Against the world is a hybrid of a thought produced by emachinery. It states there are only a few things that matter in this battle; it is you, the dance floor and the dj against the world..... With builds and synth tweaks that are sure to drop jaws ATW takes you on an adventure, you will sure not forget. Remixes by Anthony Steel, Phase and Jonra.

General Release Date: 1/12/2010

PP018 – Gabriel Boni “Satisfaction” Prosthetic Pressings – TECHNO

At the tender age of 23, Brazilian born Gabriel Boni has been on a meteoric rise since stepping into the deep ocean of electronic music back in 1998. As head of the incredible iNminimax Records and with his skills as a DJ (recently voted one of the top DJs in Brazil) he shows no signs of slowing down. For this 18th release on Prosthetic, Gabriel has provided us with a peak time techno jam he likes to call Satisfaction and while the original can stand on it's own, we've enlisted the aid of two up and coming artists to provide their interpretations. First up is Droid Recording artist and Drumcell cohort Audio Injection who has taken the original, completely deconstructed it and rebuilt a MONSTER of a remix which just may knock some clubs off their foundations. Rounding out the package is Italy's own Tony Vallini whose skills in the production seat are clearly evident when you listen to his mix. This thing takes on a life of its own. Just make sure you have the strength to hold on for the ride.

DJ Support from: Laurent Garnier, Hernan Cattaneo, Noir
