Cari Lekebusch's Transatlantic Thanksgiving

While everyone else was excitedly preparing for the weekend to start last Friday evening, Cari Lekebusch was only just ending his weekend. And by weekend, we mean the kind of weekend that last a whole week rather than the regulation two days. In fact, all told his recent three date US mini-tour lasted a marathon nine days, taking in shows in Chicago, New York and Miami; the details of which were previewed by Resident Advisor prior to the Swedish techno icon starting his transatlantic voyage. 
Cari's own snapshots of his time in Chicago, New York and Miami
Of course what goes up (or left, in the case) must come down (right) and while the good people of the USA were giving thanks for what 2012 has delivered thus far, Cari was being thrust back across the Atlantic Ocean, en-route from the golden sun and sand of Miami to the slate-grey cold of Stockholm. While spending 10+ hours in his own company, Cari found the time to note down some of the tracks he felt had delivered the most for him during his time in America. You can see the selection for yourself on Cari's Beatport DJ Profile

If you do check out the chart then you will notice, tucked away at number four, a Cari Lekebuch remix of Hugo Paixao's track Rat Man. Released this week on The Advent's Kombination Research imprint, the cavernous and ever-so-slightly off kilter rework has been proving popular for Joseph Capriati, Stephan Bodzin, Alan Fitzpatrick, Marco Bailey, Sasha Carassi and Luigi Madonna; as well as Beatport customers whose support has propelled the remix to an elevated position in the Techno Top 50 within just seven days of release. You can listen to a full length stream of the remix on the Kombination Research Soundcloud

Cari won't be performing any shows this weekend as he summons energy for the final month of the year and an exciting schedule of gigs that will have him perform in Athens, Basel, Amsterdam, Muenster, Berlin and Ghent. Details of exactly where Cari will be playing in December can be found on his newly launched GigaTools page. For those who also plan to stay home this weekend and find themselves scratching about the internet for entertainment, we recommend checking out Cari's DataTransmission podcast that went online this week. The mix contains new music from Adam Beyer, Jasper Dahlback, Alexi Delano, Alan Fitzpatrick, Par Grindvik and Gary Beck amongst others and is complimented by a short interview with Cari.

[HPX67] THE ADVENT – SONIC INTERVENTION (H-Productions, album)


H-PRODUCTIONS // proudly presents [HPX67]

THE ADVENT – SONIC INTERVENTION

Despite The Advent and Cari Lekebusch being two of the most enduring names in techno, the release of "Sonic Intervention" is the most high profile product to date of a working relationship that has that has spanned almost the entire history of techno. Something of a landmark for all concerned; not only is it the first full-length album from The Advent since 2005s T.R.I.N.I.T.Y long player for Berlin’s Tresor Records but for H-Productions and its founder, the project is the highlight thus far of the labels resurgent release schedule. As Lekebusch commented, “to have known and respected Cisco and his music or so long it was of course a great moment to get to release this album. The blend of old and new styles with high caliber The Advent production has created a strong album with depth and variety that I think new and old fans alike will really enjoy”.

Opening with the Vangelis inspired ‘Present Voyage’ then weaving a path through gritty throbbing bass, exemplified by ‘Arrival’ and on to minimized funk of ‘Disco Diva’ and ‘Need House’, ‘Sonic Intervention’ progresses naturally on through the swirling tension of ‘Get Up’ and crescendos with the combination of floor-burner ‘NZT’ and the old-school Electro stomping ‘Electric Pandemic’; featuring the vocals of Detroit Grand Puba’s Paris Du Black Fu. When quizzed on his motivations behind his latest studio album, The Advent stated “I wanted to do something quite personal for this first album and delve a little bit into the past to get inspiration from my influences… to make an album that reflected all the musical genres I have been inspired by over the years – electro, electronica, tech house - not just the techno tracks”. Future music from a past master, made for the here and now.'

Cari Lekebusch - remixes for Chris Colburn's Destiny [ESD047]


Under the stewardship of Alan Fitzpatrick, 8 Sided Dice Recordings continues to maintain its reputation as one of the most consistent techno labels to emerge in recent times thanks to a steady stream of well-received releases. The label operates as both a home for high profile artists and an outlet for emerging talent; striking a balance between output from Fitzpatrick and that of his contemporaries, including contributions from Rich Jones, Chris Colburn, ON/OFF, Harvey McKay, Hans Bouffmyhre and Nicole Moudaber. Established in 2008 as a vehicle for Alan Fitzpatrick to release his own music, 8 Sided Dice has evolved on an impressive trajectory in line with Fitzpatrickʼs own career. Recognised as one of the most exciting talents to emerge from UK in recent times, Fitzpatrickʼs brand of infectious, modern techno has propelled him towards the upper echelons of the scene and has encouraged an impressive list of legendary techno talent - Cari Lekebusch, Joey Beltram and Slam - to grant their endorsement to 8 Sided Dice. With this latest EP Chris Colburn has notched up eight releases for 8 Sided Dice since his debut in 2010, making him one of the true cornerstones of the labels success to date. A long-standing player within the techno scene on Englandʼs south coast, Chrisʼ passion for the genre goes back to the early 90ʼs when he fell for the sounds of Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin and Luke Slater. This schooling in the fundamentals of techno is influential within the music he produces today as he brings an industrial touch to the music he makes. Having left a lasting impression on many with his ʻWhippedʼ track back in February, Chris Colburn makes an overdue return to 8 Sided Dice this September. Typically raw and uncomplicated, ʻDestinyʼ is a punchy slice of mechanical sounding techno, fusing wobbly metallic sounds over a punchy kick and incessant hats. Cari Lekebusch delivers two remixes to complete the package, the 06:00 remix that works the track up into an intense, shunting crescendo while the 04:00 remix adds swirling spaced out atmosphere.

H-PRODUCTIONS presents [HPX65] V/A - Recombination Sequence 1 - Symbiosis


H-PRODUCTIONS presents [HPX65] V/A - Recombination Sequence 1 - Symbiosis

(Various artists in colaboration)

H-Productions Recombination Sequence series is the third part of a trilogy of compilation concepts that the label has launched in 2012. Carrying on from the Mutations and Archeology Exc. series, Recombination Sequence takes its inspiration from the run of collaboration EP’s the label released in 2011 with the aim of bringing together collaborations between artists on the H-Productions roster as well as both new and established producers who have traditionally not contributed towards the label. With a long history of collaboration between the artists on the H-Productions roster, not least label figure head, Cari Lekebusch, the motivation behind this project is to allow for more of the kind of sonic experimentation and collaborative creativeness that has been at the core of why H-Productions has endured so long as a tastemaker label within Techno.

This nine-track compilation brings together the combined talents of an array of established and emerging talent. Planned and collected over a six-month period, there are collaborative works between Cari Lekebusch and other members of the HPX collective including The Advent, Tony Rohr and Nima Kahk as well as Jesper Dahlbäck & Nima Khak and Alexi Delano & Tony Rohr. From outside the label roster, techno stalwart Dustin Zahn hooks up with Tony Rohr while Dutch songbird Zoe Xenia brings her understated soul to H-Productions for the first time and Berlin saxophonist Niklas Mascher adds his tripped-out musical touch to the album. Finally, Benjamin Mull, younger brother of Swedish Techno icon Joel, joins forces with Lekebusch to give a symbiotic sense that within this microcosm of production, history is repeating itself.

H-PRODUCTIONS presents Archeology Excavations series

[HPX64] - Jesper Dahlback / Archeology Exc.2

Inspired by a desire to retrace the steps that led to the current musical alignment of the producers assembled on their label roster, Cari Lekebusch's H-PRODUCTIONS have commissioned an eight part series of compilations that will explore the Techno archeology of their artists. Each collection will delve deep into their back catalogue, unearthing long-forgotten and undiscovered examples of their work and tracks from other producers that were landmarks within their own evolution. Lovingly compiled and carefully constructed, H-PRODUCTIONS archeology excavations series will describe the story of how each producer made their journey from then to now: documenting the tracks each artist feels were instrumental in shaping their own history within Techno music.

HPX63 - CARI LEKEBUSCH - YOU ARE A HYBRID TOO - ALBUM OUT NOW


H-Productions have been releasing their distinctive brand of ever-so-slightly left-of-centre techno since 1994, however 2011 saw the beginning of a new way of working for Cari Lekebusch's imprint. Motivated by the dual inspirations of the label's original name – Hybrid Productions – and the brands long legacy within techno, a concept was born which brought together a select group of artists whose musical style complimented one another and whose heritage matched that of the label. This deliberate hoarding and nurturing of creative forces within a group dynamic has breathed new life into the label: and allowed Lekebusch the creative time and space to approach his own work in a less pressurized environment. The result is Lekebusch's twentieth studio album

The story of this fourteen-track album began almost immediately after the release of Lekebusch's previous LP in March 2010. Keen to create a body of work that had its roots firmly planted within a set musical concept, but that did not stray too far from the DJ-orientated world that Lekebusch has called home for as long as techno was called techno, a project began that would take shape slowly: eventually forming and coming sharper into focus as time passed. Created using a blend of analogue and digital machines, each track was formed by manipulating one bar patterns. These patterns, shaped from Lekebusch's own bespoke sounds, were arranged and documented using 'hands-on' recording techniques to lend each composition an organic, 'live' aesthetic.

By utilizing such practical techniques, the physical process of writing the tracks naturally lent itself to support Lekebusch's theoretical vision for the album. The limits imposed by his 'one-bar' concept ensured Lekebusch got the experimental feel he was searching for as his arrangements became more abstract. By live recording sections of each track his hands were literally forced to select from a limited range of options, thus lending each track a stripped down sound, without the temptation for many embellishments, leaving space within each track for DJ's to further manipulate the sounds via their own layering or edits. Finally, the combination of all these self-imposed limitations engendered further frequency experiments that created 'in-your-face', almost claustrophobic soundscapes that would challenge listeners in the way that Lekebusch wanted.

The results of such conceptualizing are evident thought the album, albeit in subtle and unobvious ways. Perhaps the most interesting result came with 'Ultraterrestrial' that was the result of a recording a studio machine playing pre-set patterns randomly to create a genuine symbiosis between man and machine. Elsewhere, the track Ghost Notes take advantage of Lekebusch's frequency experiments by recording the subtle effects on notes when combined with different keys and recycling the 'sonic byproducts' within the track; where as the epically proportioned title track, with its vocoder 'Cylon' voice invites the listener to 'move closer to the wave generators' to receive the proclamation that 'You Are A Hybrid Too': reinforcing the assertion that there is a message contained in this album that has been placed within to be absorbed and not just heard.

Cari Lekebusch - Svett EP (ISLR015, International Sound Laboratory)


Sweat, also known as perspiration, transpiration or diaphoresis, is a product of mixing H2O with various solid chemicals such as chlorides and is mainly produced by glands located in the skin of mammals. It consists further of chemicals such as 2-methylphenol (o-cresol) and 4-methylphenol (p-cresol), as well as a small amount of urea. The sweat works as a thermoregulating mechanism, cooling the body from dangerous overheating, wich could result in body malfunction. It has also been reported that components inside the male perspiration would aslo work as a so called "chick-magnet". Sweat can be found in a wide variety of mammals, all though it is shown that only humans and horses produce large amounts of this chemical soup as a part of its cooling system and primarly by glands under the armpits.Studies has shown that men start their perspiration faster than women when exercising under the same relative intensity. If this proves the theory that men use their sweat as a tool for luring women into their bedrooms is yet to be shown. Speaking against the theory, would be the fact that most sweaty men smells bad. When sweat occurs, the bacteria residing on the skin, feeds of the chemicals and as a biproduct, a smelly odor is produced. Keeping in mind that sweat also is produced during states of nervousness, it is implied that sweaty dancing men fearing an embarrasing defeat after a displaying their shortcommings as part of the mating rituals, still enjoys a better chance of intercourse if the target female is exposed to the sweat odor. No study showed if the same case stands true for homosexuals.

Out end April 2012, on Jesper Dahlback's ISL, (International Sound Laboratory)

Cari Lekebusch - Rejuvenations (H-Productions, remix series)


H-Productions have been releasing their distinctive brand of ever-so-slightly left-of-centre techno since 1994. Founded by the endlessly prolific and pioneering Cari Lekebusch, the label has become a mainstay of the techno scene; one of the few labels who can claim to have been influential throughout the last two decades of techno history. Aware of their status as one of the elder statesmen of the European scene, H-Productions and Lekebusch himself understand the necessity to keep their sights fixed on the horizon if they are to have a future within the ever changing and increasingly disposable world of electronic music. It is this desire to maintain that has been the inspiration for the labels eye-opening release schedule of EP's, albums and compilations from an array of classic and emerging techno names.

The recent release of the inaugural episode of H-Production's Archeology series shone a light on Cari Lekebusch's discography. The multi-part chain of compilations will explore the techno archeology of H-Production's artists, delving deep into their back catalogue to unearth long-forgotten and undiscovered examples of their work that were landmarks within their evolution as a producer. Inspired by the warm reception given to this retrospective works, H-Productions now launch a sub-series of EP's that will take the prize finds from the Archeology sessions and bring those classic tracks up to date with remixes from some of the most well known and respected producers within techno.

For the first installment of H-Productions Rejuvenation series, Cari Lekebusch has handpicked his favorite producers to rework four of the better-known titles from his catalogue. No strangers to unearthing past glories following the Soma 20th anniversary, Slam step up to add a weighty slice of techno heritage to the package, turning in a hypnotic journey of a mix to compliment the otherworldly vibes of the infamous 'Mad Poet'. On the flip of the first vinyl, fellow Hybrid, Nima Khak, takes on 'Attitydknackaren' and delivers a brilliantly simple and hugely effective update that is sure to illuminate many after hour sets.

Next come a brace of mixes from recent collaborators with Lekebusch, as two of techno's brightest starts return the complement with modern interpretations of Cari classics. Joseph Capriati stamps his incendiary style on the Rastafarian chanting of 'Unite' to create a punchy but subtle rework that pulses with intent as the vox refrain weaves in the mix while Alan Fitzpatrick gets ravey on the iconic 'Steady Motion', originally a limited edition EP for the Japanese market, as he brings his unmistakable heavy funk to the familiar gruff vocal hook.

02 Cari Lekebusch -- Steady Motion (Alan Fitzpatrick Gets Ravey)
03 Cari Lekebusch -- Unite (Joseph Capriati Remix)

Zoe Xenia & Jade Mantis - Behind the Mind (ep, on 1:53.2)

Zoe Xenia and Jade Mantis (Cari Lekebusch) met during a festival event in The Netherlands, and became instant friends while sharing stage. During the show both Zoe and Cari realised their mutual, compatible energies and it didnt take long before the first co-operation track’s where recorded. The first experiments where conducted over the internet, but after noting the great results Cari visited Zoe in Amsterdam (and Zoe visited Cari in Stockholm). The outcome was beautyful, timeless an original sounding Deep House infused Techno to Techno infused Deep House music.

As a bonus goodie for this release, Jade Mantis has recorded a mix using only music produced by Zoe Xenia. We are very proud to present this exclusive extra material to you - Download the full package directly from 1532.se

HPX61 - CARI LEKEBUSCH - ARCHEOLOGY EXC.1 (H-PRODUCTIONS)

With techno currently enjoying a peak in popularity it is all too easy to get caught up in the clamor for what is new and next. Who is the latest star producer to emerge as the leader of the pack? What boundary-blurred sub-genre is currently hot for the tastemaker DJ elite? Which label will be next to be showered with plaudits for forging a path at the vanguard of scene? Where will be the next location to be home to nomadic artists and branded as the new Mecca of techno? In amongst this frenzied crystal ball gazing most observers, consumers, critics and commentators have their eyes an ears so firmly fixed on the horizon that they seldom have chance to reflect on the history of those producers who have been integral in the development of techno over the previous twenty years.

Inspired by a desire to retrace the steps that led to the current musical alignment of the producers assembled on their label roster, Cari Lekebusch’s H-Productions have commissioned an eight part series of compilations that will explore the techno archeology of their artists. Each collection will delve deep into their back catalogue, unearthing long-forgotten and undiscovered examples of their work and tracks from other producers that were landmarks within their own evolution.

For a fixed charge per product, ‘I’m A Hybrid’ users gain access to their own account as part of H-Productions ‘I’m A Hybrid’ microsite; a special place for the labels über-fans to hang out and enjoy our music within a specially constructed multi-media environment.

Users will automatically be notified on delivery of our new releases each month. Audio can be accessed via the HPX player, which streams audio from within the microsite and also via WAV and MP3 download ZIPs.

So what do you get for your money a month? H-Productions will release an album a month through 2012. Projects include artist albums, various artist compilations and DJ mixes. Content will be drawn from all eight HPX artists and will include re-issues / remixes of classic tracks alongside tons of new music. The 2012 release schedule is detailed below.



Hybrids get more than just music though! The microsite will be designed to operate as the labels own online magazine full of bespoke editorial, created each month around the new projects as they happen with exclusive news, announcements and competitions, interviews, artist biopics, artist blogs and charts all viewed within project branded page.
Having set a high standard for video content in 2011 with a series of “on tour” video’s from showcase events in Amsterdam, London and Zurich, the microsite will see this aspect of the label marketing enhanced with in depth artist interviews, studio / production tutorials, promotional videos and more behind the scenes footage from HPX tour events.
I’m A Hybrid users will also be able to access a variety of merchandise and multi-media bonus gifts around each release. These gifts will be specific to the projects and will include things like downloadable artwork prints, screen savers and desktop avatars as well as bespoke merchandise lines themed around the creative ideas behind our music.
By creating this bespoke, interactive environment which is tailored to the needs and wants of our fans and built to enhance their enjoyment of our product and involvement in the H-Productions brand we hope to further shorten the gap between our artists and fans and in the process deliver a product which is desirable, collectable and value for money.

HPX60 - V/A - MUTATIONS 101 - H-PRODUCTIONS ALBUM

2011 saw the launch of a new way of working for Cari Lekebusch's H-Productions label. Motivated by the dual inspirations of the label's original name -- Hybrid Productions -- and the brands long legacy within techno, a concept was born which would bring together a select group of artists whose musical taste complimented one another and whose heritage matched that of the label. This deliberate hoarding and nurturing of creative forces within a group dynamic has breathed new life into a label whose first release hit the shelves of record stores in 1994; enabling the H-Productions legacy to continue to be a home to the artist who have helped build the brand over the last seventeen years and provide a launch pad for like-minded talent of the next generation.

Like the label itself, this debut release of H-Productions' Mutation series is also a hybrid. Born out of a spark of inspiration, this various artist compilation is an evolution of the often tried and well tested 'annual best of compilation' concept; a collection of brand new, original tracks crafted solely from the separated production parts of H-Productions 2011 back catalogue. Having collected numerous samples of percussion, keys, strings, pads and effects from the 40 tracks released in the last year a gene pool of audio. This mass of parts and stems was made available to the H-Productions artists, with all eight members of the roster invited to consume the individual parts in order to regenerate them into original productions of their own. Result? The seventeen tracks listed below...

A unique, set of genetically modified music created by combining and mutating the sonic DNA of the label's 2011 output. A bold experiment to challenge the creative elasticity of the producers on the roster by inventing a hyper-artistic working environment that would allow for the group to be inspired by each other while expressing themselves individually.
Creatively free to select parts from whichever track they wished, a controlled but random process began to take shape. Take a hi-hat from Alexi; grab a bassline off Cari; throw in Jesper's kick drum; add a sample from The Advent & Industrialyzer's synth; play around with Joel's melody and sprinkle it all with Tony's crazy effects. The potential combinations were endless and we believe the outcome is nothing short of phenomenal.
