HPX59 - CARI LEKEBUSCH AND JESPER DAHLBACK - HANDS ON EXPERIENCE 2

H-Productions draws 2011 to a symmetrical close with Part 2 of the analogue-only production experiment between Cari Lekebusch and Jesper Dahlbäck. Having opened the years schedule with Part 1’s exploration into the creative capabilities of a pair of Roland 808’s, this time the pair focus on the Roland TR707 and TR727 drum machines; bunkering themselves away in Dahlbäck’s studio for a week-long session, pushing the combined output of the machines to their limits to create four eye-widening tracks.
This digital only release consists of Bongo Slush, an unashamedly old-school rhythm track complete with whistles and drum roll fills; Latinator, a pacey and pulsating ride through compressed sub-bass and echoing effects; 6 Bit Massacre is a sparse yet shimmering construction of percussion and spacey ascetics; and 1985 Again, that combines trippy, off-centre tones with crisp beats to create a wobbly, hypnotic and mechanical excursion through robot funk.

HPX58 - THE ADVENT - HIGHER LEARNING


Having made a debut on H-Productions back in March alongside regular studio partner, Industrialyzer, this latest three-track EP marks The Advent’s first solo work for the label; cementing an exciting partnership with Cari Lekebusch’s seminal imprint. A new school alliance of old school names that will see the release of The Advent’s tenth studio album in June 2012.

Title track, Higher Learning, sets the futuristic ‘sci-fi’ feel for this EP with its linear robotic groove, vocoder vocal stabs and high-end frequencies creating a synthetic soup of mechanical sounds, bleeps and squeaks.

Distract injects yet more textured layers to the release with a purposeful, percussive groove providing the foundation for bubbling melancholic melodies and drawn out harmonic yawns to craft a deep but driving feel.

The package culminates with Nexus 22; a fusion of unrelenting swinging rhythms and cinematic hooks that flip from sinister, otherworldly mood setting melodies to hauntingly shrill harmonics, floating throughout the mix.

DC88 - CARI LEKEBUSCH AND JOSEPH CAPRIATI - MISSED FLIGHT (DRUMCODE)

‘Missed Flight’ see’s two of Drumcode’s most prominent artists, Cari Lekebusch and Joseph Capriati, team up to deliver a four track EP of essential modern techno.

‘Missed Flight’ the track comes on like the perfect theme to the arrival of autumn. The tones are moody and the groove is linear, penetrating and eerily appointed. A Kubrick-esque breakdown of pulses and space is the only thing that breaks the momentum and adds a deliciously creepy characteristic to proceedings.

‘Napoli 4AM’, balances out its darker tinged predecessor with a shuffling 909 funk and playful groove combination that pairs up with subtly delayed hits deep FM synth work brilliantly.

The release features two digital only cuts that come from Lekebusch alone, ‘Entanglement’ and ‘Rockturner’, and they see the Swedish producers penchant for late night, woozy grooves that encapsulate the listener in varying ways. ‘Entanglement’ does the job with a brooding vibe while ‘Rockturner’ employs a more aggressive mood but both are fine examples of Lekebusch’s ability to create enthralling techno.

Alexi Delano and Cari Lekebusch - Off World Wonder - H-PRODUCTIONS [HPX56]

Ahead of their forthcoming "Path Of Hybrid" compilation, Alexi Delano and Cari Lekebusch come together on this four-track collaboration EP. Constructed over countless remote studio sessions with Delano and Lekebusch swapping files across the Atlantic, the pair got to finish the project via a marathon three-day studio session in Stockholm. The result is a set of mood-soaked techno that reflects the personality of both artists

The 12” of the release opens up with Off World Wonder. Set to a steady marching rhythm, this deep and brooding trip through low bass tones and cut up chants fuses deep tribal flavors with spaciously epic atmospheres. On the flip side, Streams Of Dreams keeps things on the deep, rolling tip with a heavy, undulating sub-bass powering the groove while an infectious vocal refrain loops in the background. Seriously deep and sultry techno…

Two digital bonus tracks complete the EP. System Unlocked sees Alexi and Cari get in a more melodic mood; conjuring up a slow-burning groove of swaying rhythms and lush chords that amalgamate into a hypnotic mood-setter. Out Of Sight closes out the EP with a workout of punchy robotic funk and freaky harmonic organ riffs that makes for a robust but harmonic tool for adding colour and life to heads-down beat drive DJ sets.

ESD034 - Alan Fitzpatrick and Cari Lekebusch - First Times - 8 Sided Dice

Have you ever sat about playing 'Producer Top Trumps' and wondered what a particular studio combination would sound like? Well, here at 8 Sided Dice we don't like to waste our days wondering. We want to find out the facts. Consequently, when we dreamed up the idea of Alan Fitzpatrick going head-to-head in the studio with Cari Lekebusch we immediately packed Alan on a plane to Stockholm and told him to not come home until the matter was settled.

The result was 'First Times'. Unsurprisingly for a Fitzpatrick / Lekebusch production certain elements take care of themselves. Resounding beats, precisely crafted rhythms and a groove that will make the room move, never mind the people in it, are all supplied as standard but it is the giant-sized melodic moments where the pairs skills intertwine to give the most exciting results.

For the b-side, remix duties were handed over to 8 Sided Dice crew members, Rich Jones and Chris Colburn; who formed their own collaborative partnership to give 'First Times' a good old shake about to see where the pieces fell. The rearrangement moves the original into darker territory, toughening up the groove with metallic, choppy beats and freaking out the harmonic elements with off-kilter reverbs and echo effects.

Tony Rohr - Oddlantik Avenue Remixes - H-PRODUCTIONS [HPX55]

Having originally released Tony Rohr’s Oddlantik Avenue album back in February, Cari Lekebusch’s H-Productions have done what they do best and clubbed together between their tight roster of like-minded artists to come up with a eye-widening selection of reworks for this remixes EP.

Left to their own devises to pick what tracks to remix, the individuals’ own tastes came to the fore. The Advent unsurprising opted for the twisted techno killer ‘Eden Acid’ while Cari Lekebusch jumped at reworking the crazily tripped out ‘RZ-Fun’. Alexi Delano’s low-slung mix of ‘Nightdrive’ is beautifully melancholic and Jesper Dahlback made Oddrangement into a disorientating soup of deeply intense moods and fizzing percussion.

Cari Lekebusch - Repetae Multi Volume 1 - H-PRODUCTIONS [HPX54]

It has been a full twelve months since Cari Lekebusch appeared as a solo artist on his H-Productions label. Having filled that time focusing on a number of collaborative ventures with his peers and showcasing the work of the H-Production roster this come-back EP offers a supreme selection high impact techno.

"Repetae Multi Volume 1" is made of 5 brand new tracks from Cari Lekebusch, once again showcasing his outstanding production talents and his ear for floor shaking rolling techno. From the opening cut "Inambulatio" we are launched into a world of deep hypnotic grooves with a relentlessness that draws you in keep you hooked from beginning to end. "Tenacis" takes a slightly more glitchy approach, with tight percussion, bleeps and beeps riding over white noise sweeps and pulsing bass. "Animae Abludo" delves down a path of wonky rhythms and dark twists in a way that only Lekebusch can do. "Abadeaqua" heads straight for the floor with a some jacking drum programming and bass patterns that provide the perfect bed for the subtle spacy melodies. Finally we have "Obscurus Sanctus", a dark edged soundscape with an edgy but atmospheric intro vibe, quality stuff.

Cari Lekebusch & Joel Mull - Afrormosia - H-PRODUCTIONS [HPX53]

Cari Lekebusch looks to friend and fellow Swedish techno stalwart Joel Mull for the latest instalment in the unfolding story of H-Productions.

Lekebusch and Mull should need little or no introduction for most, both of them having spent the last two decades shaping the techno landscape with their recordings for labels such as Drumcode, Cocoon, Harthouse and of course H Productions.Their latest musical adventure is a four track EP featuring 2 collaborative works and a solo track each.

We open with "Afrormosia" and launch straight into the first of the two collaborations with a deep and rolling cut that draws on tight drums, stabs and vocal edits to create a superb heads down groove.

Next up Cari & Joel unleash "Mahogany", a pulsating slice of mesmerizing techno with a deep late night feel to it, pitch shifted vocals, relentless rides and the ever present throbbing bass make this an instant winner.

For the third cut Joel Mull takes the reins solo and delivers the excellent "Gmelina", this is a superb percussive workout with real intensity and shows off Mulls production talents to the full.

Finally Cari Lekebusch steps up alone and turns in "Obeche". Again this is a rolling and hypnotic cut that sits perfectly with the accompanying tracks and is certain to find favour with techno and tech house DJs across the board.

Jesper Dahlback - Thermal Voltage - H-PRODUCTIONS [HPX52]

H Productions follow up outstanding recent singles from Alexi Delano and The Advent & Industrialyzer with a new EP from Swedish production don Jesper Dahlback.

For his latest musical outing Dahlback offers up 4 tracks of spacious, quality techno, kicking off with "Thermal Voltage", a stripped and intense cut with a big warehouse feel to it. Low end bass, relentless percussion and heavily reverbed stabs come together to create a sparse and edgy atmosphere on this excellent opener.

Next up we have "Transfer Function" which continues in a similarly stripped back vein, providing a superb deep and menacing vibe through a fusion of bass, discordant pads and FX, great stuff.

Penultimate track "Diode Ladder" takes an old school line with filtered percussion and a DX style bassline to create a hypnotic piece of techno that is sure to get any dancefloor stuck in the groove.

Finally we have "Transistor Buffer", a brooding and rolling slab of minimal techno (in the original sense) that builds into a powerful groove, providing a perfect final piece to the package.

Cari Lekebusch - Third Eye Vision - Mote Evolver (MOTE023)

Luke Slaters Mote-Evolver has been busy keeping the techno scene on its toes with a string of releases that have proven the credentials of the label and challenged the status quo.

High profile releases such as Planetary Assault Systems Deep Heet Vol. 2 and the Jerome Sydenham vs Function, James Ruskin and P.A.S. remixes of GT have set the benchmark for a release schedule that has seamlessly encompassed music from Slater and his peers as well as the best of new school producers like Samuli Kemppi, Lucy and Shifted who are evolving the techno sound for the next generation.

One such producer who could be attributed to either of these categories is Cari Lekebusch. Often credited with serving as inspiration to a generation of electronic music producers, the founder of H-Productions has earned a reputation as a diverse and evolutionary force within techno thanks to a steady stream of quality productions and so Mote-Evolver welcomes Cari back to the label for his second release with open arms.

Third Eye Vision, inspired by ideas of cerebral exploration, is one for the heads. Built around a building groove emitting a constant melodic hum; the effect is a disorientating hypnosis enhanced by psychedelic chimes and detuned reverbs.

Ana Kata, with its playful, off-centre styling, continues the EPs theme of other worldliness. Warm and enticing yet stark and challenging at times, the fusion of contrasting elements from both sides of the palette creates an alluring harmony.

Available as a bonus track on the digital release, Octave Mundi closes out the EP with an epic flourish. Part cinematic soundscape, part muscular rhythm track, the sonic alchemy at work creates a moment for the late hours; delivering in equal measures for the head and for the feet.

Alexi Delano - Color Clash 3 - H-PRODUCTIONS [HPX51]

Cari Lekebusch's H-Productions welcome back longtime hybrid agent Alexi Delano for their latest offering.

Alexi's ‘Colorclash3’ EP kicks off with ‘In a Blue Mood’, a rolling and pulsating slice of techy excellence that draws on razor sharp drums and percussion, laying the base for hypnotic stabs and atmospheric FX. This is an subtle yet intense track that pushes all the right buttons and is certain to find it’s place in record boxes for months to come.

Next up we have ‘Moving Slowly’ which again journeys into the realms of deep, emotive techno. A simple yet incessant line runs through the track, giving it a heads down vibe before the edgy and dark top riff comes down bringing a twisted late night feel, class stuff.

Finally ‘Steep Steps’layers understated elements to provide a superb sonic tapestry of intertwining stabs, sweep and hits. This is perfect closing piece to a superb package from this outstanding Chilean born, Swedish raised & NYC based recordings artist.

The Advent & Industrialyzer - SCH EXP - H-PRODUCTIONS [HPX50]

Cari Lekebusch’s H-PRODUCTIONS imprint teams up with the heavyweight duo of The Advent & Industrialyzer for a brand new single of floorfilling atmospheric techno…

H Productions continue their musical journey with the signing of a brand new single from The Advent and Industrialyzer. The Advent, for those who don’t know, is Cisco Ferreira, a central figure in Techno for the last 20 years whose seminal recordings for the legendary Internal label led to his becoming a household name (for any lover of techno at least). Ferreira is also the man behind the much lauded Kombination Research label which has acted as a fitting vehicle for Advent over the last 13 years. Industrialyzer is the pseudonym of one Ricardo Rodrigues, the Lisbon born and Dutch based producer behind the CodeWorks label, he has had success with a string of solo releases and has worked alongside Ferreira previously on a host of collaborative singles.

For their latest outing Ferreira and Rodrigues have delivered new original new recordings in the form of ‘SCH EXP’ and ‘Complex Data’. The release kicks off with the former of the 2, a bumping, off beat bass driven cut that delves into energy fuelled melodic territory to great effect. Twisted and heavily effected argeppiated riffs layer over rolling drums and white noise sweeps to create a dense, dancefloor atmosphere with a classic old school techno feel.

On the flipside the duo take things into the realms of darker and tougher techno, with the intense and industrial ‘Complex Data’. This is dark edged machine music with a taught, menacing air about it and a brilliant heads down vibe. Superbly produced and perfectly delivered, this is a great slice of techno from these two outstanding producers.

The addition of The Advent and Industrialyzer to the H Productions roster is certainly a great move and with an album from the Advent in the pipeline there is much to look forward to with H Productions.

TONY ROHR - ODDLANTIK AVENUE - H-PRODUCTIONS [HPX49] ALBUM!

2011 is set to be a big year for Cari Lekebusch"s H Productions label.
The imprint is redefining itself with a tight roster of some of techno"s classic names, producing forward thinking music and collaborating together to achieve their aims. The roll call for this new era includes The Advent, Alexi Delano, Cari Lekebusch, Jesper Dahlback, Joel Mull and the awesome Tony Rohr who appears here with his long awaited second album.

Brooklyn based Rohr has been a solid fixture on the international electronic music scene since the nineties, recording for labels such
as Drumcode, Plus 8 and of course H Productions. His music style has been described in the past as Voodoo Techno, though in reality his musical output has varied from tough tech house to rolling underground techno, always with an eye on quality.

For "Oddlantik Avenue" Rohr distils his years of experience as a DJ and producer to create a superb soundscape of percussive techno and machine music spread over ten tracks. From the opening robotic intro cut of "I Come in Piece(s)" through the glitchy trippiness of "Meta Tripping" and on to the rough old school stylings of "Mechazilla vs Mr Oddmatik" there is quality and depth here at every turn. Eerie cuts like "Dark Passenger" sit up against twisted techno killers such as "Eden Acid" and the off the wall "RZ-Fun" to provide a rounded insight into the sound of Tony Rohr in 2011.

This is an out and out techno album with no concession to anything that may dilute its electronic pedigree, however it displays a diversity within its own sonic walls that makes clear Tony Rohr is a producer with much to offer.

Vinyl, CD Compact Disc and Digital out FEB 2011

Cari Lekebusch & Jesper Dahlback - Hands On Experience - H-PRODUCTIONS [HPX48]

Cari Lekebusch and Jesper Dahlback have been at the heart of electronic music for the last 2 decades and have been behind countless releases for some of the worlds leading techno imprints. For their latest collaborative work they have returned to the roots of techno, recordings four brand new tracks with a pair of classic Roland 808s and very little else.

The release features 2 tracks on the vinyl single, "Bellbottom" and "Rockers" plus 2 additional digital only tracks "Headbanging" and "Moodswing" for download.

All of the recordings are stripped and rhythmic with a definite old school flavor, yet there is also a beautiful warmth in the production and a sense that though recorded in a retrospective way this is the sound of now. The hypnotic groove of "Bellbottom" is mesmerizing, "Rockers" is a superb journey down a dark tech tunnel and "Headbanging" and "Moodswing" are both brilliant examples of how much can be done with some limited studio hardware.

Vinyl and Digital out JAN 24 - 2011
