oneone - A Short Story (STRTEP017)

Saturate Records, Hamburg-based label has released interesting stuff. Again. You can grab A Short Story EP by oneone (GergÅ‘ Galambos) hailing from Budabest (Hungary) on pay-as-you-want basis. As in the case of all SR releases it's quite difficult to pigeonhole the genre. The artist covered a few fields of nu-beatz / bass music from trap (Miss You) through 8-bit synth-driven extravaganza (My Soul is Your Thought, Livin Like reminding me of Pixelord) to pumping, up-beat dancefloor killer like in Dancing Hamsters. Oneone moves quite craftily through the sea of twisted nu beatz and his original tracks are accompanied by a heavy bundle of 10 remixes, with Memory9, DJ Pound, Luisterwaar and BoeBoe's refixes being my favorite ones.
All in all the package rocks. Check it out.

Zoooriginals #1 Daisuke Tanabe and Jealousguy (artwork by Ericailcane)

Low-quantity, high-quality picture disc featuring two tracks by Japanese producers Daisuke Tanabe (half of Kidsuke duo w/ Kidkanevil) and Jealousguy (a.k.a.  Masami Takahashi). Great artwork is provided by the graphic artist Ericailcane. This beautiful audio and visual project has been released by the collective Original Cultures (run a/o by Laurent Fintoni) and Zooo Print & Press.

Wana the first track of Zoooriginals #1 by Daisuke Tanabe is a nicely rolling and laidback trip through warm electronic soundscape with occasional 8-bit synths and voice samples. It's sooooo Japanese :)) I really like the emotional touch on this one. Whereas, Jealousguy in Hydra offers much more powerful beat and wider use of generic instruments, but again with great synths. Grab this little gem, as there are virtually only 50 pieces released on beautiful picture disc.
