Cari Lekebusch - State Of The Art (Album) - H-PRODUCTIONS [HPX44]

His prolific output has seen Lekebusch release a string of albums and mix compilations over the years, receiving critical acclaim for his work to date. His latest foray into the world of the long player sees this experienced artist pull out all the stops and deliver a stunning body of work that makes up "State of the Art". From the atmospherics of the opening title track its clear that this album is here to grab your attention. There is a depth of character in these recordings thats cemented by Lekebuschs flawless production skills, be it the stripped minimalism of "Abomination", the bass and synth driven intensity of "Saw Tooth" or the ethereal vocal led "Rising Star", they all deliver perfectly, providing snapshots into the sonic sound of this supreme producer.

Highlights are hard to pick on such a consistently good album, but the rolling old school techno of "Simplicity" is certainly worth noting for his heads down hypnotic quality that has one instantly hooked. Likewise the closing cut "Art of Technology" is worth a mention for its dark and spacious sound driven out of a marriage of sci-fi ambience and electro tinged percussive elements. However there really is not a bad track here, with each piece bring new elements to the fore and further displaying Lekebuschs studio mastery.

Alexi Delano & Xpansul - In A Hybrid World EP [HPX43]

The prolific and talented Alexi Delano teams up once again with familiar studio partner Xpansul for a brand new single on Cari Lekebusch’s H-Productions label. The single kicks off with the title track "Linked" and immediately launches into the Techno / House fusion sound that defines this duo’s work. Deep, spacious and mesmerizing, the track uses simple tape delayed key stabs, understated drums and subtle ambient layers to create a superb rich groove that draws you in and keeps you locked til the final bar, pure class.

The second of this audio triumvirate comes in the shape of "The Runner", a relentless and rollin slice of techy excellence continues the hypnotic, deep vibe set down by the opening track. Uncomplicated and perfectly delivered this is another prime example of superbly restrained production leading to a record that is much more than the sum of its parts.

Finally we have "The H World", a dubby journey into exquisite bass driven techno that sees minimal layers woven into an aural soundscape that is sure to find its place on the afterhours dancefloors of the world. This single is nothing less than you would expect from this talented and experienced duo and is another highlight from the ever impressive H-Productions ...
