It Sounds Future

It Sounds Future Every week we handpick 3-5 releases. In a nutshell: Music reviews, artist interviews, tech reviews and the history of music – especially the future.

http://www.itsoundsfuture.com/about/ What is this about? In a nutshell: Music reviews, artist interviews, tech reviews and the history of music – especially the future. We also love to tell stories about Burning Man (Regional) events and experiences. Music is the sun and the center of the ‘it sounds future’ planetary system. Its mostly electronic. But because everything influences everything, we will have a meticulous and diligent look at the past, the history of music and these black holes which eats everything. Thrilling and auspicious new music reaches us at the speed of light, carried by no less than spirited and ingenious artists from all over the galaxy. Future technology used for making music is something we go nuts about! Therefore we send our bounty hunters to the remotest corners of the universe, to get the gear for the sluts we are. The future is bright, vibrant and euphonious – explore this deep space and sound at itsoundsfuture.com.

Mission: We are already a team of several writers, and I am happy that I found this one wonderful and special contributor: she is a real Berliner, going to her first raves in the mid 90ties, seeing all the changes from the early 80ties and especially when the wall came to up to this day. She is the voice from a glory techno past, leading us into a golden age again, the age of aquarius. Of course you find already music reviews from my favourite artists, and every week we carefully pick another musical piece and analyze and describe it in our vivid and colorful verbiage. I also did the first interview with Eden Grey, hailing from Miami and now making waves in the UK modular scene - Dr. Modular as I call her, since she is in her 2nd year PhD in music composition. I am super happy to announce that in the 2nd part of the article we do a hands on experience on "How to build your first modular synthesizer", so follow us if you want to dig into this topic. Next I am going to interview 2 huge local stars from south africa, when I am going down to SA for one month to play and perform at the Africa Burn festival. Of course you will find a detailed and illustrated report of this wild event on itsoundsfuture as well... and talking about the burn, there will be a documentation for the Burning Bär Event which takes place next month in this freaking castle. As lucky member of its communication team, we went there last weekend and I took a host of pictures of this place of pure awesomeness - also very shortly on ISF. We will furthermore get in the hot desert of Portugal (Boom Festival), visiting our friends in California, playing our annual show at Burning Man with the Boring Art Crew and finally going to no less than exotic Honolulu to ride some bitchy ass waves to extend the summer! So get ready for the ride, follow us, we are in all your favourite social networks, write a comment, leave a feedback, be part of it or show some luv, we are happy to get in touch with you. cheers, Daniel

Thomas Barnett – Club Talk� on Low Tech Funk EP (Visillusion, VSD-007)

Regal - Ego Wars EP (BPitch, BPX006) - IT SOUNDS FUTURE

Pick of the weekend:
Regal - Ego Wars EP ( BPitch Berlin, BPX006)

Exactly one year after his debut ‘The Eyes’ for BPitch Berlin, ‘Ego Wars’ is the follow-up EP of the exceptional Spanish artist Regal. With the three tracks (as well as a remix by the Frenchman Hadone) Gabriel Cassina shows again why he is one of the most prominent techno acts of our time. After releasing acid-infused rave tracks like ‘Overground’, which last year became an outstanding signature track not only in Ellen Allien’s DJ sets, he now combines radically fast beats with trance-influenced melodies on the ‘Ego Wars’ EP. The tracks convey the same passion that you could hear on his previous releases on his own label Involve, but they are also partially entering a new stylistic territory, triggered by his move from Madrid to Barcelona last year.

According to Cassina, the name of the EP and the title track ‘Ego Wars’ is not only closely linked to strong feelings of frustration, redemption and love, he clearly also knows how to express these intensities musically. ‘Ego Wars’ is a high-performance rave track with an uncompromisingly twisting, distorted bassline and a theme that sounds like an echo from a Detroit techno-dystopia. Cassina shows a seriousness and strength here that has never been heard of him in this way before. A2 number ‘Anhedonia’ begins with Regal’s typically hard-hitting groove until a super euphoric trance melody floods the brain with serotonin - a musical dichotomy that Cassina repeatedly transforms into pure rave ecstasy here.

‘F**k Making Love’ on the B-side then absorbs the energy of ‘Anhedonia’ and transfers it into something a little brighter - until an almost oriental-sounding melody pushes the track in a completely unexpected direction - a real exceptional track in Regal’s extensive discography! The French DJ and producer Hadone, who recently released an EP on Shlømo’s label Taapion, finally turns ‘F**k Making Love’ into a summerly raving uptempo neo trance hymn, rounding off this EP in the best possible way.

Christopher Kah - Wasteland EP (Highwav Records, ECHO001) - IT SOUNDS FUTURE

Our Thursday selection:
Christopher Kah - Wasteland EP (Highwav Records, ECHO001)

French producer Christopher Kah kick-starts his new ‘ECHO LIVE’ project where he combines the Roland MC- 707 & Roland TR-8S for his new live set.
A native of Elsass in France, Christopher Kah is a self-taught, multi-talented multi-instrumentalist. A truly unique talent, he is also a man for whom the approach is every bit as fundamental as the result. An obsessive student of sound, Kah’s roots in electronic music can be traced back to an early appreciation of industrial techno — a strand of music that still greatly influences his productions to this very day. Aside from releases on his own imprint, Highwav, Kah has also represented some of the techno scene’s most credible and renowned outlets, from Dave Clarke’s White Noise to Terence Fixmer’s Planete Rouge and DJ Hell’s scene-defining Gigolo Records.
‘Wasteland’ EP is a project that sees Christopher partner up with Roland to bring a new live set concept with only 2 machines, the brand new Roland MC-707 & Roland TR-8S to give light to his new 45 minute live show. Kah has shot two clips to give an insight into this new live concept, one in a disused factory and the other in a minimalist studio, with the focus of this project being on his live set.
‘Wasteland’ deploys thunderous percussion, driving oscillations that fill the energy of the track whilst the haunting vocals make a fierce appearance as the tension develops. ‘Night District’ makes way for acid-soaked synth swells, rattling highs that balance with the shimmering bass grooves and weaving modulations throughout this seven minute odyssey.

Das Komplex - Reverse Hallucination (King Of Kong, KOK003) - IT SOUNDS FUTURE

Our Wednesday selection:
Das Komplex - Reverse Hallucination ( KING of KONG, KOK003)

Das Komplex joins up with the King Of Kong imprint to release four soul-infused tracks entitled ‘Reverse Hallucination’.

After spending years as a bedroom musician and occasional DJ Marcin Lukaszewicz, modest producer from North-Western Poland known as Das Komplex debuted four years ago on local FASRAT label. Since then he became one of the most respected Polish producers, releasing an album on Catz’n’Dogz’ Step label, as well as singles for Young Adults, Love On The Rocks or People Must Jam. His very singular, hazy breed of sample- based house-derived music made its way to sets of numerous high-profile DJs (from the late Andrew Weatherall to Axel Boman), eventually making its way to no other than DJ Harvey, who invited Marcin to play at his Pikes Ibiza residency, and included one of his tunes on his recent ‘Mercury Rising’ compilation.

Das Komplex comes to King Of Kong with a new package of mind-bending yet club-ready tunes, proving his skills as master of contemporary disco music with a romantic twist. ‘Maybe There’ starts slowly with a lazy, syncopated beat only to introduce a bass riff of mammoth proportions, which carries the track for its 8 minutes - by the end reaching a proper dancefloor momentum. ‘Stay’ starts with a piano melody and hazy synths to be transformed into an epic, 10-minute mid-tempo disco groove, with live instruments and angelic vocals, a neon-lit lullaby for early morning hours.

‘Lagos’ takes a slightly darker route, but even here a heavy, percussive groove is brightened by bursts of uplifting piano, while ‘Sounds’ keeps the hazy vibe going, with layers of unintelligible voices over a smoky groove..

Das Komplex ‘Reverse Hallucination’ drops on King Of Kong on 3rd April 2020 (Vinyl) and 17th April 2020 (Digital).

Thomas Barnett & Ecilo - Low Tech Funk EP (Visillusion, VSD-007) - IT SOUNDS FUTURE

Our Tuesday selection:
Thomas Barnett - Low Tech Funk EP ( Visillusion, VSD-007)

It's the dawn of a new decade, the '20s, and there are a billion different things vying for the attention of your eyes and ears
- yet very little truly deserving of that most precious commodity.
Low Tech Funk, the latest collaboration release from the Visillusion duo, Thomas Barnett and Ecilo, fits the bill as an absolute must see-and-hear for all Techno fans desiring to experience what can happen when the storied past of this genre blends perfectly with the future.
From the Detroit-based Barnett, the mind behind “Nude Photo”, which is widely-regarded as the first Techno track to set the world aflame, we get the earth-shaking, riveting and trend-setting track, “Club Talk”, which captures and squeezes you in a python's grasp from first listen.
Barnett, a true Detroit Techno originator, doesn’t loosen that grip with the universe-altering “Low Tech Funk” title track or street-level “Pimpin’", two cuts that reek of Motor City authenticity and musicality too often missing from the mundane sequels and rote re-releases coming out of the genre these days.

Ecilo, a Jakarta-based phenomenon, has been a force of nature since exploding on the scene in 2008 to share his love of Techno music with whoever would listen. It didn’t take long to find an audience, or a kindred musical spirit in Barnett.

On this six-track masterpiece, there is no let up, and it’s difficult to tell where Barnett ends and Ecilo begins. But if we must draw a demarcation line, you’ll definitely find it with the son of Indonesia’s “Ain’t Scared of You (MFs).” No, English isn’t Ecilo’s first language, but he uses Bernie Mac as a stand-in and we all get the message loud and clear.
Ecilo delivers some DJ-friendly fare to thump the floor with “Stone From Venus,” and you may never think of a night at the club the same way again after hearing his ethereal and thought-provoking “Future Acid Poem.”

As a duo, Barnett and Ecilo are as dynamic as any Techno Twosome we have ever seen or heard. With Low Tech Funk, they go three-on-three, head-to-head, side-by-side and back-to-back - blood brothers in the dance game, both taking no prisoners and playing for keeps.
There are a billion things vying for the attention of your eyes and ears here in 2020. Let me save you some time: Low Tech Funk, like your time, is a precious commodity. That said, it deserves every bit of your undivided attention.

Boudi Boudin & Salome - Poisson Lune (Fehler Musik, FHLR028) - IT SOUNDS FUTURE

Pick of the week:
Boudi Boudin & Salomé - Poisson Lune ( Fehler-Musik, FHLR028)

Berlin Kitkat/Symbiotikka residents Boudi Boudin & Salome are returning to us with their second release on FHLR Musik. We observed a tremendous artistic development over the last months with BB&S and they truly deserved their next release.

BB&S signature is boisterous, dark and dirty techno, maxing out to the fullest on FHLR028.

On top, we are adding young blood and longstanding experience with two remixes of Môlito and DJ Fire. Jurgen Leyers aka DJ Fire started in 1992 and released amongst others on the well-known Lightning/Bonzai Records in Antwerp. Môlito is a Berlin newcomer who is in love with dark techno and analog synthesizers, adding a vigorous tune to this package.

Expect a release with ample diversity, stimulating spatial depth and an abundance of sheer energy.

Developer - Sangre Por Oro (Modularz, Modularz46) - IT SOUNDS FUTURE

Our Friday selection:
Developer - Sangre Por Oro ( Modularz, Modularz46)

History: it's evident that Developer has been unstoppable over that last decade, but it‘s been an even longer time ago that Developer got his start as a DJ back in 1992 where he started djing in the backyard party scene then moving to a residency on 88.7fm Radio then eventually becoming a fixture in the Los Angeles underground warehouse scene playing alongside many of the worlds techno elite and organizing events throughout the 90s into the 2000s. In 2009 Developer retired from events and then converted Modularz from event organizer group to a techno label and began releasing his own music eventually making his way into europe and onto the world.

The Album _ Sangre Por Oro, which translates to Blood for Gold, is a full-bodied album, with each track highlighting the different complexities of where techno can go and take you. The whole-room experience that he creates through his tracks highlights his ability to unify techno lovers, all under one roof.

Some of the standout tracks from the album include „Risky“, the opening tune, with its hypnotic groove and crafty synth work to introduce you to the next 67 minutes of Techno in the purest form. „24hrs in Beijing“ manifests the producers dark side, as it acts as a metaphor for the organized chaos and overwhelming nature of the city wi- thin a 24hr period. Its menacing and brilliantly written it really brings the experience of overexposure alive and moving at a faster pace a reality.

Halfway through the album „Over Cold Seas“, a very deep and emotional track which infects you with nostalgia and yet its pure art with the dark racing undertones mo- ving you onward. Cultivation, an outstanding piece of techno that nurtures the use of an off-note melody to bring a space fueled, dramatic ending to the album.

Sangre Por Oro - A real look into the mind of Developer.

Set to be released on the 24th of April 2020, on the Modularz label.

Alexander Church - Exploring Fear & Sadness Part 2 (Configurations of Self, Configs007) - IT SOUNDS FUTURE

Our Wednesday selection:
James Welsh - Exploring Fear & Sadness Part 2 ( Configurations Of Self, Configs007)

Exploring Fear & Sadness Part 2 is the second instalment of a new series from Configurations of Self boss Alexander Church once again featuring versions from James Welsh.
This project is a series of collaborations between Church and Welsh that explore the deeper recesses of the mind through electronic music . Part 2 comes a month after the first chapter and later in the year there will be two further EPs that delve into the theme of PTSD through music and an immersive VR experience.
Kicking things off here is the brilliant 'Nature & Nurture', a lush techno track layered up with rubbery bass, sleek synths, deft percussion and shimmering lines that all bring real dynamism.
Long time studio wizard James Welsh shows off the skills that have landed him on labels like Phantasy Sound and in the record crates of the likes of Laurent Garnier. His version is a driving one with a real sense of urgent techno funk that is riddled with an acid bassline and crisp hi hats that mean it brims with future soul from start to finish.
Church then offers 'Graded Exposure', a darker, more insular techno track with a real sense of pain. The rumbling drums and bass and the melancholic chords all build to a peak that is stripped back but enthralling and filled with sonic detail. Welsh then rebuilds the track in harmonic layers that get deep under your skin and add up to brilliant musical meditation.
This is a fantastic continuation of this essential series.

Raven - Flames (Rekids, REKIDS154) - IT SOUNDS FUTURE

Our Tuesday selection:
Raven - Flames ( Rekids (Official), REKIDS154)

Barcelona-based multifaceted artist Raven joins Radio Slave’s Rekids with an incredibly imaginative five-track debut release.

Born in Canada, Raven is a talented nomad who’s been cutting her teeth as a DJ, producer, singer and songwriter whilst living in Los Angeles, Chicago, Berlin, Toronto, and Mexico City. As a performer, she joins the dots between Techno, Acid, Electro and early Rave: a genre-spanning approach she applies to her productions too, making her a difficult artist to pigeonhole. Discovered by Matt Edwards, Raven now joins Rekids - a label responsible for introducing some of electronic music’s most incendiary names to the scene, including the likes of Nina Kraviz and Peggy Gou.

Opening gently with ethereal atmospherics, ‘Flames’ springs into action with galloping percussion, echoing effects, metallic nuances and Raven’s poignant singing. Following on, ‘Saint’ bangs from the word go courtesy of its convoluted rhythm, piercing claps and soaring background synths whilst rave sounds and murky lyrics operate throughout.

Thudding kicks and crystalline pads then pair up beautifully with her serene voice in the lively ‘In2U’, leading into the more downtempo ‘BBGRL’ that employs purring sub-bass, emotional melodies and acid squelches. Tying everything together, ‘Insomnia’ inaugurates with sweet chords and re-pitched vocals before robust drums drive it onwards into the distance.
