Review: All we know thus far of newcomer Leo Tunik is that he's an Argentinian artist based in Barcelona, making his debut here for Berlin-based imprint My Own Jupiter with 'four absolute floor tracks'. The 'New Beginning' EP is full of wacky retro techno styled cuts that you've come to know and love from Nicolas Lutz' label. From the bleeped-out acid funk of "13" followed by the lysergic energy flash of "The Key Of Joy" - the A side in particular really keeps the euphoria levels high. On the flip, the rave continues: prepared to get weird - old school style - on the frantic "Universum".
Review: Last year, Spanish analogue freak Do Or Die impressed with debut album "Alien GF", a nine-track romp through intergalactic acid, techno and electro pastures. "Imposible Materia" offers up his first new material since and is similarly impressive. Head first for "Lost", a bustling, all-action affair rich in fizzing riffs, weird noises, classic Motor City chords and wiggly acid lines, before losing yourself in the hypnotic, minor key motifs, broken techno beats and unsettling stabs of "DX100". Sci-fi loving acid freaks will devour the psychedelic TB-303 lines, rumbling Michigan bass and punchy drum machine hits of opener "Conciencia Sucia", while closing cut "In Time" offers a warm, groovy, tactile and suitably shuffling conclusion to another superb Do Or Die release.
Review: There's not much info out there about My Own Jupiter's latest addition to the roster, though we do know that he's a Spanish producer and that "Morning For Loss" is his debut album. It's a rather impressive set, with the publicity-shy artist offering up a poignant, spacey and quietly picturesque mix of slo-mo melodic electro, intergalactic dancefloor workouts, early '90s style IDM, bleeping ambient techno and shimmering purist electro jams that sound like they've been sat idle on a dusty cassette since 1989. Throughout, Depressor strikes a near perfect balance between bottom end grunt, atmospheric aural textures and tuneful, ear-catching synthesizer motifs.
