Midnight JJ : Night of Taiwan [red dye n°13]

Midnight JJ, aka. Juri Suzue, is a talented producer hailing from Japan. The past few years have been quiet, with one EP released in 2011 as well as a track on a 2009 compilation, both on the same netlabel. Nevertheless, these productions, along with other unreleased material on Midnight JJ’s soundcloud, have grabbed the attention of the Red Dye Management.

This EP, specially commissioned by us, encapsulates the Midnight JJ sound perfectly : straddling a line between dub, ambient techno and experimental electronic production, Juri Suzue’s music relies heavily on its slick yet expertly constructed rhythms to anchor vaporous synth chords and bits of ambiance that give all of her tracks a ghostly quality. But for all its ambient leanings, this is still music that rewards attention, with a keen sense of detail and style, where all the sounds are placed just right to create a delicate and abstract sonic landscape.

Like a Mark Rothko painting, if a Midnight JJ track appears simple on the surface, it reveals itself upon repeated viewings, and will really only unravel for the most patient of listeners. But all this attention given to atmosphere would be doing a disservice to the music, for the solid rhythms can work just as well in a club-oriented environment.

Versatility is paramount.”

Jamod Allah : The Impossebulls Present Jamod Allah [BSMX0089]

“I first heard Jamod Allah back in the early to mid 2000s when a few of his early tracks were released on Chuck D’s SLAMjamz… I dug what I heard and thought for sure an album would happen, but it never did. So, for the most part, this talented EMCEE has remained off the radar for many but a lucky few. An MC who straddles the line between B-Boy and Rastafarian, Jamod truly brings a unique voice and perspective to the hip-hop pantheon.

I’m very happy that blocSonic can now be a home to some of those locked away tracks that he created in collaboration with C-Doc!

A very special thanks to Jamod Allah… welcome to the blocSonic fam! Thanks again to C-Doc for the impeccable production skizills.”

Corporate Control : Enter The Market-Share [bump196]

“This may be the first time to release lo-fi tracks. The album is a mixture of house and techno, approached with lo-fi vibe and immediate, playful attitude. ‘Other influences include hip-hop, dusty deep house chords, IDM-like interludes, vaporwave-tinged conceptual aesthetic and even the style of labels famous for their lo-fi/outsider approach of dance music.’”

Abiz Sonko : Memoris From Auter Espeis EP [CICUTA031]

“Welcome to the release number 31 of Cicuta Netlabel. We are in an exciting football season. This World Cup of Brazil is teaching us that impossible is nothing and that the above fact does not ensure success, so you have to maintain a very high standard of work to stay on top. We’re probably not at the top, but we work hard every day to get it. For this month we bring you a ration of quality techno.

In this release we present a new value, from Albacete (Spain), Abiz Sonko. Appearing in the netlabel world for some time, we can find some of his references on labels like Zimmer Records or Geometrika FM. His sound, futuristic and somewhat eclectic, catch from the first moment to the listener. Now is your turn to evaluate their work.

As for the remixers, this time we have chosen to include a single remix, by the Valencian Raszia, another artists common in netaudio scene (Geometrika FM, Zimmer Records, AudioExit Records, …) and close to Hypnotica Colectiva project. It presents a very strong and loud remix, perfect for late hours.”
