Mote030 is the second remix package to reinterpret Planetary Assault Systems’ seminal record ‘Function 4’. Originally released on the influential Peacefrog label in 2000, Luke Slater now hosts ‘Function 4’ on his Mote-Evolver imprint and invites three of the finest minds in electronic music to tease the original apart and reconfigure it anew: Lucy, Marcel Dettmann and Shifted.
Lucy opens the record with a structural re-imagination of ‘Function 4’ where the beats become broken and the layers dense. Amid hisses and snarls Lucy skilfully reweights the elements and splinters the vocal, giving rise to a stunning, hypnotic atmosphere.
Marcel Dettmann, who appeared on the first episode of the remix package, is back with a new agenda. His ‘Base Dub Remix’ revels in swung beats, taking the material and submerging it into a space that is deep and aqueous, with euphoric results.
In Shifted’s hands ‘Function 4’ becomes galvanised. Shifted takes it hard, ratcheting the pace up-a-gear and accelerating into industrial terrain. Persistent and pernicious, this track sounds less like it was made by human hands and more like the product of a complex industrial process.
The record closes with Lucy once again rethinking ‘Function 4’. He mines the twisted beats of the original and moves them into hybrid dub territory. And in spite of the pounding bass line, the track manages to reach out into the realms of ecstatic ambience.
This package sees Lucy, Marcel Dettmann and Shifted highlighting the disparate facets of ‘Function 4’. The EP contains industrial, broken beat, dub and ambient elements; a multiplicity of ideas to move not just the body but also to provoke the mind.

Hotflush presents the return of Sigha with a new EP entitled“Abstractions I-IV”, his sixth on the label. On this release he reaches into darker territory, beginning with a beatless, ambient suspension, drawing the listener in his submerged sonic sphere before dropping into a series of chilling compositions that seem to seethe and smolder at sub-zero temperatures, adorned with haunting electronic blips and synthetic machinations throughout.

Berghain’s Marcel Fengler presents the fifth installment in the club’s expanding mix series. A central resident at the club since its early days, Fengler continually and consistently fires up the Berghain floor with his vast and exemplary collection of techno, house and electronica.
Opening with the eerie echoes of Emika’s ‘Count Backwards’ – treated by Marcel Dettmann - we quickly discover the first exclusive gem of the mix as Peter Van Hoesen’s incredible ‘Axis Mundi’ sets the tone from here on in: full, lively and not short on drama.Pushing into darker zones, Regis’ typically haunting mix of Tommy Four Seven’s ‘G’, or Luke Slater’s L.B Dub Corp mix of Fengler’s own ‘Thwack’ segue with more classic cuts from Secret Cinema’s ‘Timeless Altitude (Minneapolis Mix)’ and Ratio’s ‘Doublefeature’. Fengler keeps the surprise element alive while maintaining tension and pressure throughout. Gerd’s tripping ‘Time and Space (Duplex Southside Mix)’ mixes wonderfully with UK bass veteran Seiji’s ‘More of You’ in a glorious mid point throw- down. The mighty Claude Young teams up with production partner Takasi Nakajima on ‘Think Twice’, which then swells to pick up the tension in a beautiful piano-led hypnotising moment.
With the focus on more current developments in more edgy techno and house, combined with a hearty nod to the past, the mix continues with newcomers like Puresque showing promise, alongside a weighty new Ben Sims track, and the pounding filtered glory of Vril’s ‘UV’ – another exclusive for the mix. Marcel includes a new track that heads straight for the floor with ‘Sphinx’, while men of the moment Skudge put forward ‘Man On Wire’. The slow burning house of Reagenz’ ‘The Labyrinth’ leads us into a psychedelic game of funk, dub and abstraction as the mix winds down.Before drawing to a close with Convextion aka E.R.P’s stunning ‘Vapor Pressure’, we’re treated to a UK house classic by 20:20 Vision’s ‘Future Remembrance (Livestyle Mix)’, in all its analog glory.
In Berghain 05, Marcel Fengler has proved filling floors doesn’t have to be about ticking boxes. This mix is a perfect example of the type of dexterity, sensitivity and scope he possesses as a DJ.

Title: Sigha EP
Label: Hotflush Recordings
Cat number: HF029
Format: 12” Vinyl, Digital
Release date: 13 June 2011
Hotflush presents its fifth release from rising producer Sigha. This EP continues his progression into subterranean techno hauntings. Since his debut on the imprint in early 2009, Sigha has accumulated support from DJs across the electronic sphere such as Francois K, Brendon Moeller, Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, Peter van Hoesen, James Ruskin, and many others. With this release he takes a more direct approach that maintains the cavernous atmosphere and spatial tension of his previous work on Hotflush and his own label Our Circula Sound, resulting in a collection of club tracks that evolve and sizzle with burning tenacity, ultimately bursting into the beatless closer that echoes about in an otherworldly space.
The drum and bass duo flip the script and provide an hour of house and techno.
House and techno probably aren’t what you expect when you see the word Commix. But George Levings and Guy Brewer have been full of surprises of late, not least of which was the commissioning of a remix album of their massive drum & bass full-length Call to Mind which found Kassem Mosse, Underground Resistance and Marcel Dettmann rubbing shoulders with drum & bass stalwarts Instra:mental and dBridge. As Levings recently put it, “We didn’t want an album that had anything too insular, too samey. We wanted it to tell a journey through different genres of music.”
