So Surkin is no more the new school and he actually felt in love with the new new school. Probably amazed by the work of Rustie on his “Loose Yourself” (probably the best remix pf the 2012) or by the cult works of the club cheval members or the new futuristic experimental pop of Para One, his brand new ep has a new tumblr wave outfit, visual and sound.
From the aticipations we caught the evolution of Surkin and we expected an additional new energy to an already super exciting scene.
But actually Surkin fails to impress this time, with an ep extremely well produced but way too much derivated from conteporary young producers.
“Oedo 606” is a tropical downtempo tune with a Unicorn Kid-a-like synth melody , flat and boring.
“Tiger rythm” is a tribal techno track that also fails to impress.
“Stronger” feat. the Club Cheval member Canblaster is the outstanding track of the ep, an experimental rave experience, and with “Warehouse” are the two tracks that worth the attention to this work.
REVIEW ➮➫➬➭ HYPER REALITY
STARRING ➮➫➬➭ Panteros666
After the release of Myd on Marble a couple of weeks ago, members of Club Cheval keep to rule the dance music: now it’s time for the mini-album by Panteros666 on Bromance Records to take you to the next-level shit.
Victor Watel presents us 7 tracks surrounded by the #tumblrwave post-physical world, a unique techno-rave experience on a futuristic dancefloor.
True dance experimentalism taking the heritage of the rave and hardstyle anthem of the 90’s, especially from Scooter Official and and european funfairs.
Tiga already praised him as “real future 2013 rave shit”, we felt totally in love with addictive proto-anthems such as “Hyper Reality” and especially with “Euroshima” with the rudest synth lead in the world today similar to Club Cheval’s “Now u realize”.
The nostalgic synth set-up is combined with panteros666’s innovative drum style that characterized also his work with club cheval collective.
Go and grab this extraordinary piece of future out now on itunes, soon on vinyl.

REVIEW ➮➫➬➭ RECOLOR
STARRING ➮➫➬➭ 813
The new emerging UK label Activia Benz is making noise from the underground after the release of the excellent Urnite ep by DEECH. Now the label presents us the brand new ep by 813 from Moscow, going on with his distinctive sound, maximal #vaporwave bass music with strong esoteric and crunk influences: sick tunes with strong personality but listening to “Crystal Raw” for example you can catch strong similarities with Cosmic Revenge.
“Elastique” is the killer beat, drop it on the dancefloor to start a RAVEolution.
“Charger” is tropicalia gangsta bass soundtrack of a summer drive.
“Frosty Morning” is a delicious downtempo track, 80’s flavored like almost the rest of the record, and “256 color” is slightly different from the other songs, straight kick, Marble sound. RECOLOR ep is out now via active benz bandcamp and on venial from the 5th of march. ENJOY

REVIEW ➮➫➬➭ FREAK ANDY EP
STARRING ➭➫➬➮ Myd
MYD! Member of the most exciting new school of dance music in the world today, Club Cheval, along withCanblaster, Sam Tiba and Panteros666, releases his brand new ep.
Solo projects of this four geniuses have always made me dance almost every night in the past two years and this ep is the proof that Club Cheval members are the most talented producers, togheter or not.
“Freak Andy” is the darkside of Myd if compared to his previous works (like Octodip EP) with a strong influence of the new techno wave becoming more and more popular with the excellent works of Bromance Records and MARBLE REC. (god bless).
“Myd’s long-term ambition would be to build new standards for mainstream dance music”. LET’S DANCE TO THE FUTURE.
Out now on itunes!

REVIEW ➮➫➬➭ THE WAY EP
STARRING ➮➫➬➭ Bobby Tank
The london producer Bobby Tank releases via MofoHifi Records the follow up of his 2012 debut “Afterburn ep”.
6 tracks of classy maximalism that merges the best bass, trap and glitchy beats. The atmospheres in “The Way” are relaxed in contrast with the frenetic textures of the vocal samples, Rustie a-like.
The scottish LuckyMe influences are also strong in “Waterphone shadows”, delicious liquid bass track.
The big massive synths always present in the record are warm and 80ish and reminds me of the mood of “Reaching Out” the 2011 NERO ’s single: this is clear in the song “Glass Moon” that you can download for free via XLR8R .
Bobby Tank is an emotional version of our crunk favs Sinjin Hawke, Cosmic Revenge , Rustie , Hudson Mohawke. You’ll love this.

STARRING ➮➫➬➭ iTAL tEK
Is out now on Civil Music the new stunning ep by the brighton, uk based talent Alan Myson.
Four original tracks exploring footwork’s rhythmic palette, plus remixes from Deft and Throwing Snow. With 3 albums for Planet Mu to his name Alan Myson has been evolving his dextrous dancefloor electronica, techy IDM-driven dubstep, glitch-hop & post-dubstep forms for approaching a decade. Adept at shrugging off the constraints of genre identification, Hyper Real further reveals Myson’s stylistic slipperiness. Inspired by the febrility and tension/release of Chicago Footwork rhythms - and continuing where his recent long player for Planet Mu, ‘Nebula Dance’, left off - Hyper Real EP sees Ital Tek again morphing the rhythmic geometry around 160BPM and further advancing his instinctive, deep and melodic arrangements, dramatic drum work & impressionistic synths to make for one of the most engaging incursions to the footwork to date.
