EBM edits, face-melting acid, halftime jungle and much more…
Edit maestro and Power Station co-founder Kris Baha rolled out this stripped-back EBM edit as a free download ahead of playing the Opium Club in Vilnius, Lithuania, last Friday. Putting the scalpel to a rare cut from South London band Portion Control, it’s another keeper from the Melbourne native.
If you’re into your acid you’ll have heard of Roland’s iconic bass synthesiser, the TB-303. Pretty much as rare as they come, Roland marked their 909 Day (September 9th) celebrations by announcing that they will reissue both the 303 and equally sought-after TR-909. Quite partial to a gurgling acid line, Creme Organization mainstay Innershades has put the updated and rebranded TB-03 to the test, laying down a simmering 303 pattern for this absolute face-melter.
A little known Milanese duo going by the name Younger Than Me have been put on remix duties for the latest Luv Shack Records release. Served up as a free download via Les Yeux Orange, they plunge Hard Ton‘s original into tropical waters, swapping the brooding acid lines for some playful marimba and slamming 80s drums.
Despite regularly giving music away for free, S. Channel has wandered out of his comfort zone on the latest offering. Trying his hand at a bit of jungle, the French producer’s moody breakbeat patterns are strung out, delivered in halftime and bathed in the otherworldly ambience of his tender synth strings.
French analogue enthusiast Willis Anne is treating fans with an excellent free download, reworking a track from a certain famous French duo (hint: the photo featured is a rare shot of them unmasked).
