Klein and Zenker

are getting down dirty anb funky on the new 12" from Mutteki called 'Humidity'. All three tracks have a tasty funky-acid character and although not the easiest to fit in a set, they do a pretty good job of exciting the eardrums.

check it out if you get the chance.

Dance N Dust Double D

I have been going through the new Dance N Dust comp titled Double D.
Shaman, El Zisco, Itaitaiko and Treshold Productions are doing a pretty good job. There are some tracks in there though, that really don't cut it for me.
The highlight of some trully strange choices is 'Doors To Dream' from Remote Access which - and excuse my french here - is something of a 1997 mega-track, 8 years late.

keep it real

New progressive trance comp by Sinn-Tec

I just heard a preview of the new Sinn-Tec compilation titled "Intense Activity" and it sounds like something to watch out for. Its compiled by DJ Laureth from Plusquam. My favourite track is Tribal feeling by Rodrigo Carreira.

You can have a preview here.

Neo-Full-On?

"What's in a name? Neo-full-on is the new vibe bubbling in the gulf between progressive trance and the slower, less-saturated side of full-on psychedelic. Or is it actually the frothy crest of a new wave in progressive? At the moment, there's not much of it out there, so it's difficult to tell. But if the name helps people get over the general knee-jerk rejection against "progressive," then all the better. And why not? This part of the electronica shore has been virtually abandoned since the turn of the century, when full-on artists moved up the beach in pursuit of higher speed, fidelity and musical kicks."

I found this in Japan Times. Are people really that scared about calling progressive trance music what it is? Progressive that is. Is the word progressive that scary? Possibly so, for all those who love to hang on to the past...
