Offbeat techno before offbeat techno was ever a thing, though it probably still isn’t a thing. Broken beat with urgent synths – A Made Up Sound actually has tons of classic and underappreciated tracks.
Creepy and heavy on the hi-hats, this is an atmospheric stripped-back minimal track for Monday mornings.
Slightly quirky sounding minimal track with a slow rise feel to the pads. EP also has tracks from Cristi Cons and DeWalta – so it is heavyweight minimal, but this is the pick for me.
Such a classy feeling house track from 1993, a great bassline, a sultry vocal and occasional sax jabs – but thankfully minimal on those. Not sure why I’ve never previously discovered it – sounds like I should have known it since the 90’s.
Dreamy kind of ambient electro track, yet occasionally slowly driving – with Ibicencos talking over about their memories of arriving on the island in the 1970’s, which makes it really dreamy. Surprised to be loving something by Soulwax – is a long, long time since they’ve done something this appealing to me.
House track that feels like a little ditty, it packed with dirty melody – and apparently Ben UFO has been playing it, so you can get a feel of the feel from that.
Slightly groovy and again with slightly nonsense vocal stabs. The bassline and chuggy groove that it has means that it could easily fit into ro-minimal sets without it being overly ro-minimal itself.
A quite introspective kind of floaty minimal track – some vocal stabs that sound a bit like Github, which is possibly the software engineer in me coming out.
I kind of have Matthew Dekay down with all the wishy washy stuff that bores me – but this is a stripped back minimal track, really nicely constructed with a long beatless breakdown – and is still rather dreamy too.
Well, I was tickled by the name. But it is also a really groovy house track with nonsense vocals in both Spanish and English. It really does make me want to dance – and even to start Djing again.
This feels like a very difficult track to re-edit and at first I couldn’t understand why – yet it really does retain the authentic nature of the original yet class Dana’s classy underground tone to it throughout.
Dreamy deep house that reminds me of Guy Gerber at his peak – almost that tiny touch of trance about it.
