In October of 2016 Ray Kajioka will release his new album ‘Consistency’, the second LP from the Berlin-based techno artist. The 11 track release follows 2014’s ‘En Route’ and will be released on Heiko Laux’s label Kanzleramt, a label with which Kajioka has worked with closely for over a decade. Consistency LP bears all the marks of a Kajioka release: a collection of deep, driving, groove-laden and synth-focused cuts. Heady grooves which leave little question why Ray Kajioka is held in such high regard among techno veterans, called upon regularly for remix honours by the the likes of Heiko Laux, Joel Mull, Pan-Pot, Elbee Bad, Alexander Kowalski and Marc Romboy, to name but a few. Kajioka’s reputation for faultless production remains consistent on this, his sophomore LP.
The full, extended physical release of Consistency contains 3 vinyl disks; 2 x 12” LP disks plus a free, bonus 12”.

Lovers Rock – Yoshinori Hayashi – Asylum – Lovers Rock no. 12


lr12alr12b



Tokyo’s Yoshinori Hayashi makes his debut on Lovers Rock with “Asylum,” an EP of deliciously bent avant-house and free jazz-esque voyages. Hayashi has been making a name for himself as a formidable studio talent, and on “Asylum” he offers some of his finest work to date. “Agent Dissolving Device” welds louche narration, kaleidoscopic atmospheres and an energized girl-group hook to an earworm groove. An invaluable tool for adventurous DJs, “so wrong it’s right” doesn’t begin to describe it. Meanwhile, the b-side is given over to Hayashi’s more sombre, quasi-chamber music leanings. “Burrow” and “The Old Man” both use wheezing, wandering piano figures to articulate a mournful, bleary-eyed beauty that seems to flicker in the shadows of the a-side’s extroversion.

The LP “The World is Shit” is a radical and depressing statement by Sebastian Reuschel looking at the world, the society and the people living in those.
A-side track “Exav 2B” is a warm and deep industrial ambient track which starts rough and noisy but culminates in a rolling and dark atmosphere.
“Dying Alone” – the b-side track – is a sample based rolling noise dream of suicide and total apocalypse.
