Various – Volume 9 (WGD009)
Placid aka Paul Wise is chief in command at ‘We’re Going Deep’ – an online community and record label, born out of a lifelong affair with the many shades of electronic rhythm and obsession for collecting records since 1988. He’s spent the last 3 decades moving heads and feet at select venues, parties and fields across the UK and beyond.
On a mission to share and release new music via his label, you’ll only find the best selections in Acid, Electro, IDM, Techno and Deep House for the dance floor, front room or your headphones making the cut. For the next (and penultimate) edition of his various artist series, he turns to the talents of 4 superlative UK based producers. All of whom make equally excellent contributions to this latest missive.
Synonymous with the legendary Smallfish imprint, Bristol based artist Remote_ opens with ‘Ionic Shuffle’ – a fresh slice of 4/4 machine-funk swing. Invoking the motorcity spirit through a tightly programmed mix of Roland drum machines and crisp evolving lead, a hefty 303 bassline burrows it’s way to lead us to the outer limits. Following on with the graceful ‘Acid 13’, a delicate space aged cut from relative newcomer Steven Simpson. Airy stabs and star-shot sonics interweave to perfection as sawtooth waves find their place amongst the dubbed out ether.
Mancunian maestro J.S.Zeiter returns on the flips with the foreboding ‘Entropy’, a dense acidic chugger that revels in cyclical note action and a simple kick. Fusing minimal elements for maximal output, you can only marvel at the outcome. Rounding off with the eerie electroid infusion of ‘Flight to Mars’ from Suddi Raval, off-kilter synths hang in the air and deep bass shakes the foundations.
