This new entry in the Assembling mix series represents a collector’s survey of 90s and 00s house, techno and electro, the smooth and the rough, the melodic and the percussive, and a few twists and turns in between. If the labels Reflective, Cosmic, Mosaic, Future Monument, Infonet and Electron Industries mean anything to you then you’re in luck. If they don’t, it’s time to get digging!
Founder of Underlying Form – a community, party and, since his debut release, label – Darren Allen is a key figure in an international network of uncompromisingly underground minimal house nights; a movement whose ear has been increasingly caught these past few years by older – and harder – electro, breaks and techno sounds from the 90s. Like his counterparts from Berlin and Brescia, London and Ljubliana (the list goes on), Darren matches his hunger for unheard and regularly eye-popping records with a scrupulous attention to detail in the mix. This podcast for Lisbon’s Assemble Music stays true to form, eschewing the heavier stuff for a masterclass in groove, mood and sequencing, with a real jaw-dropper or two along the way.
ALTITUDE - Integration EP (AS-16):
The first new release in 15 years for Matt Thibideau under the Altitude name and it's as if he never left. Just like his legendary 1998-2001 output on Blue Recordings, each of these tracks is a deep and dubby analog groove to get utterly lost in. 'Integration' could be a new addition to Maurizio's classic M series, while 'Harmonic lays the reverb on even thicker over a dark pulsing bass. 'Stabilizer' provides a techier counterpoint more aligned with the deep and driving loops of Bluespirit or Driftwood. It's a pleasure to have Altitude back on vinyl in such fine form.
