**********02. Mark Reeve - Curl (Moving Horizons EP ) [Traum Schallplatten |Traum V143]
Traum welcomes British artist Mark Reeve. Based in Germany since the age of 17 and a true “Omen club child” as he puts it in his own words, Mark has always been a huge believer of emotional techno with as little stunts as possible.
Mark had his break through this year with his release on Cocoon “Daybreak on Mars” which was a a personal favourite of Sven Väth and returns here with the equally enthralling peak time mover “Moving Horizons”.
“Moving Horizons” is by all means a real powerhorse. It is a perfect extension of Detroit concepts mixed with today's aspects of modernism. The track is a chord driven “haunting” anthem, with a strong build up, a track that never lets you down.
His recognizable colourful and bassy down pitched vocals, read aloud against a backdrop of beautifully lush, warm and sensuous chords that add a fine Balearic note to the track. Once these chords get going you know this track as a great pleaser, a track that demands a collective spirit and something rare.
Pig & Dan, Hermanez as well as Arnaud Le Texier for whom the track was appealing from the start, have remixed the track in a fashion that suits the original very much.
Pig & Dan have accentuated the Detroit feel taking the track even more towards a “big fun” sounding Saunderson production that will put a big smile on peoples faces, whereas Hermanez works in a more fashionable percussion way keeping the beat very lively and driving.
“Cold Places” follows the footsteps of “Moving Horizons” but installs more of a sensitiveness alongside it’s beautiful organ sounding chords. “Closed Doors” is an even deeper track that could go on heavy rotation with late night German TV show “H3 Spacenight”, somehow classic with a strong evergreen touch.
To round up the four original tracks by Mark Reeve we should mention his last original track “Curl”. This track works more in a dub like spirit, unfurls occasionally into a see of sounds..all very gentle and cool.
The releases finishes with a electronic interpretation of French producer Arnaud Le Texier who transforms “Moving Horizons” into a post Detroit abstract bleep consortium, all stylish and upright in its movements.
We can imagine Jeff Mills playing this.

A1. “Evening Falls”
A2. “Reply to Red”
B1. “The Eye of Silence”
B2. “Reply to Red” (Sierra Sam & Namito Remix)
Has it really been two years since the last solo 12” from Marco Giorano, better known under his production guise The Selph?! In the last couple of years this Berlin-based Italian has released a couple of collaboration EPs with the likes of Avatism and Matteo Milleri, a handful of remixes, plus appearances on compilations from labels Minus, Time Has Changed and AMAM. But he’s been saving his best own work til now for a full statement in the form of The Eye of Silence EP.
“Evening Falls” finds perfect balance between the precision of techno and the groove of house, feeling both synthetic and inviting. “Reply to Red” is also built n a tech-house template, tinged with jacking breakbeats that are contrasted by mellow piano notes and a breathy singer seducing listeners onto the dancefloor.
On the flip, the EP’s title track finally appears, and it’s a beauty: turning down the BPMs a couple notches, the dew-covered synths, thumping beats and melodic accents of acid offer a slow-burning introspective moment in the club, definitely the most “human” sounding of the three originals tracks here.
Finally, closing things out are fellow Berliners Namito (Kling Klong) and Sierra Sam (Toys for Boys, Dirt Crew) who reconstruct “Reply to Red” with a throbbing new beat and melody surrounding the vocals, adding thick G-Thang synth work and percussive precision, managing to compete with The Selph’s original.
Played and supported by Dubfire, Matt John, Sis, Shaun Reeves, Joseph Capriati, Stephan Bodzin, Hernan Cattaneo, Mikael Stavöstrand, Alexi Delano, Nico Lahs, Shinedoe, Gel Abril, Martin Eyerer and many more04. Elon - Carlos (Exercise 1 Remix) (Colombian EP) [Dumb Unit | DUMB UNIT 63]
And once gain we are back. After a welcome pause Dumb Unit returns with an energetic four tracker from our man in NYC : ELon. A long time label mate Elon strips it all back to create a bumping and infectious groove that while resolutely Dumb Unit is uncharacteristic in its nakedness ! No decor here, only pure syncopated and pushing rhythms to notch it up a tad. Perfect for leading the lions back to the warehouse and off the beach into the cooler months. "Put those shades away son we going inside". The energetic pacers of Elon are complemented by a deeper excursion; a superb Exercise One Remix that takes the original and works it into a pulsing main floor late night jam.05.

MIRABILIS 026: FIORD 'SHADOWS OF YOU'
1. Original mix
2. Triangle remix
3. Alex & Filip remix
New Zeland's finest outfit Fiord aka brothers Hayden and Barton Storm are on board with their new single 'Shadow of you'!
The original is a mixture of shuffled dirty grooves, a deeper bass line and sinister synth lines filled to perfection with suave female vocal samples. Despite it's darker vibe, there is still lots of funk to this peak time groover!
The guys also deliver a more hypnotic and triply remix under their Triangle moniker. A bit more proggy then the original, this one is a typical Triangle track:
Based around a hypnotic synth riff backed by a pulsating bass line and a strong but dirty groove. Test this one out at your late night sets and madness is guaranteed!
Label heads Alex & Filip return to the home label after over a year with this remix.
Taking things a bit out of the shadows here, their remix is a peak time techno groover. Based around a potent bass line and a strong groove with rolling percussion and lots of spacey effects and a cleaver use of the vocal samples this one should rock your floor!

Release date: Nov 7, 201108. Ioan Gamboa - Isis (Little Princess EP) [Somebody's Story | SS008]
Ioan Gamboa is the chosen name by Kill minimal to identify his current music style, a sound way more closer to his melodic roots that matches a new stage in his artistic search.Nowadays Ioan Gamboa has settled his Studio in Berlin where he is absorbing, at first hand, the flowing energy of this rockin city. ‘Little Princess’ is the magic release, sound is so glassy that it seems that it will crumble in hand in a moment.
‘Isis’ and Butterfly Effect’ steep into their mystic at the moon level atmosphere right now. Midnight drive by means of emotional pads, overflow like a streams, melodies harmonically change their forms covering with profuse rise structures. Playful voc’s insertions and percussion create movement speed perpendicularly airward directly to young and bright autumn stars. Directly to “Little princess” constellation and everything shine there, filling all space with melodious sound. If the “Little Princess” constellation exists, I’m sure it will sound exactly like this! Ioan stunningly manage arrangement and import real emotions into his already branded sound.
Oliver Lieb is a new artist of our label, it doesn’t need any introduction. He has more than 250 releases since 1989 year on his pickback. He is absolute professional from Germany, who recently proved his top level in sound with remarkable record ‘Epsilon Eridani’ on Bedrock.
The Mode B project from Ukraine is a part of independent German Label “Back Home” and it’s imprint Klangwelt under the ownership of Ryan Davis. Mode B masters of his techno. Remix is dull and ductile, by means of branded sound of this project and emotional background. Tech dance floor paints in Oliver Lieb remix and Mode’s B melodic techno structure remarkably fill up this story.

Huge support from Nick Warren for Seb Dhajje's sublime remix, deep house demi-god Harold Heath takes it way underground and Seth Vogt turns in an anthemic breaks mix. The original is a dirty, tribal houser with a revey top line. What a package for the VOCO label!
