Our Wednesday selection:
M.R.E.U.X – Modular Immersion (Blumoog Music, BLUG013)
The ‘Modular Immersion’ release sees the techno legend drop a rare remix for Blumoog label- founder M.R.E.U.X., released Feb 20th.
Opening cut ‘Dark Mind’ is an uncompromising techno affair leaning heavily on a warped bassline while dubby chords and bright synth lines play off the groove. ‘Liquid Gear’ lays the focus on syncopated drums, rattling kicks and sinister atmospherics. At the same time, Ben Sims’ high-octane interpretation of ‘Dark Mind’ shows off his trademark, loop driven percussion in a tense, energetic version imbued with funk.
DJ/producer M.R.E.U.X has a career in techno stretching back over 20 years, but since 2016 his Blumoog imprint has propelled his reputation to new heights. With releases from Dan Curtin, Steve Stoll, Terence Dixon and Patrick Pulsinger the Italian label has garnered a raft of support from the techno underground and looks set to continue with its latest missive featuring Ben Sims on the remix.
Sims is one of techno’s most revered characters. He has released on leading labels including his Symbolism and Hardgroove imprints, hosting a long-running NTS radio show and headlining almost every worthy techno club and festival on the planet.
