Review: Inaugurating new imprint Doxall is Russian enfant terrible Denis Kaznacheev with his idiosyncratic brand of reductionist minimal funk. The Nervmusic co-head (and one half of Easy Changes) does what he truly does best on his new offering "Jelly Dancing". It's a boompty and shuffling minimal house jam that's perfect tackle for messing with minds at a Sunday morning afterhours. On the flip, the always impressive Bed Vedren from Paris (Reduce/Minibar/Prospector) delivers a more energetic and hi-tech rendition suited to the main room, but nonetheless harnessing that same understated feel of the original. Tip!
Review: Grow returns with the record Isotelus Rex by Denis Kaznacheev, complete with a remix by Daze Maxim. The title track Isotelus Rex, a 14 minute work, true to grow's eccentric nature, a track at once playful and deeply neurally stimulating, sure to shake one's body and intrigue one's mind. Wonderful decaying tones, subtly jazzy, intricate electronic communications interrelate over an irresistible bass and percussive performance, a groove which will make your swing. B1 is Daze Maxim's remix, with a more ethereal approach to Isotelus Rex, it begins through a beautiful synth. Then grows a fast and intricate bass arrangement, providing a confidently vibed way though the cosmic landscape, also another great track for the dance floor, as the same physical swing as in original is felt strong. B2 Proetida, the second original work by Denis Kaznacheev of the release, is of raw, almost rude, attitude, a strong bass descends in steps, a determined momentum, the driving force of an industrious process.
