Algo - Acouasm E.P.

The tenth release on features four new tracks of
noise-based dark electronica from label owner Algo. The E.P. was produced
with the aid of an amplifier circuit housed inside an old cigar box. Sounds
were created using resonant-spring contact microphones and circuit-bending
body contacts to create piercing feedback loops, analog glitches and
temporal sub-harmonics.

PCP - More Than Hardcore, Motherfuckers

PCP now is mostly known - and in fact, well known, with a huge fanbase - for it's hardcore, gabber and hardtechno productions. which is great - but also a shame - since there is so much more. even to add PCP's important role in doomcore (well, in fact, they created it!) and dark techno would not do the label justice, as there is a lot more to discover.
while PCP apparently was well received in the beginning of the techno scene in the 1990s, soon other producers and labels took over in germany... westbam, marusha, low spirit, you know the story. even worse, even the hardcore scene was on the verge of "forgetting" PCP, as miro noted in an interview from that era. this was the mid-90s then. but out of these ashes PCP, marc and miro rose like a phoenix. with a new label (but still encomparating the PCP classics into their live acts), acardipane records, and plenty of bookings at the big dutch parties, the "gabber" crowd was throughly reminded of the vital role PCP played in the creation of hardcore, and the status of the label soon rose to legendary. while this was what PCP and its members thoroughly deserved, it also created negative fact that PCP and acardipane were now, by many people, almost 100% identified with "Hardcore" and "Gabber". true, PCP probably supplied more perfect productions and all-time classics in the field of hardcore than anyone else - slaves to the rave, stereo murder, 6 million ways to die, and so on - but as hinted above, the backcatalogue went far beyond there.
there is hardly a style and field of electronic music that has not been touched, and soundwise conquered by the PCP masters yet. they only did not do a accoustic guitar creation yet. you can find house tunes in early PCP and Dance Ecstasy releases. electro (in the old meaning of the word) on narcotic networks. even dark ambient, krautrock and psychedelic music. electronic and techno music in any form and shapes. notable are the ambient workouts of "shakira"'s 1987 metamorphosis or the jupiter pulse. the liquified drum'n'bass classic combination of "beethoven's greatest works", found on dance ecstasy. the rap(!) of the factory of freebase by FBI. the finishing thesis on minimalism via the mover's ruff traxx remix of the meltdown. the departure of all genre-bounds on, again the mover's, last breath of the homelands.
there is too much to explore to fit it into this specific text.
it is a huge shame that the "hardcore" legacy now to large part blocks the public access to the consciousness to most people around the globe for these sounds.
it is hoped that these sound treasures are discovered and noticed by more and more people. it is collection of gems that wait to be found by cunning explorers and that wait to be appraised by people.

PCP - When The Phuture Was Born

"Phuture" is a concept central to PCP. it is referenced in tracks, record titles, project names, on backcover info and so on. and indeed, while PCP is known for great techno or hardcore, even more so it is futuristic music - or rather, phuturistic music.
the tracks by PCP evoke many a great imaginery before one's eye - the comet swarm rising. the purple moon. the blue sun. of suns and moons.
it was something that always stood out for me with PCP - even before i went fully in love with the label. the sound of PCP always sounded so much futuristic, modern, scifi, alien, outer space. 'music for huge-space arenas', as cold rush records said? rather music for huge space-arenas!
the cyborg unknown, the phuture project, the planet phuture, the dance ecstasy from 3001. PCP is so much riddled with alien, future, exotic references, tricks and hints.
i rarely had this "phuture" feel with any other artists - early Juan Atkins or Somatic Responses can maybe compare, and it is something verily unique with PCP, which makes it special, and i guess is also hugely for the large and dedicated fanbase PCP has now.
PCP is a lot like the best of science fiction movies, novels, art, comics turned music - but not only that, but also intensified, concentrated, enlarged. it feels as if you would really travel around space when you listen to PCP. a darkened room, or even better, a party situation, augments this experience even more, of course.
also noteworthy is that PCP supplies various types of Phuture. from the near-future suburban battles of the cyborgs unknown, to the interstellar travel to the coloured moons, to the esoteric aliens of the outer systems, to the computerised mind of the 303 nation technoville.

it is home to mystery what enabled marc and the others to create this extraordinary phuture vibe. a love for scifi movies? comics? substances? an attitude? regardless of this, they definately suceeded with their task

when enjoying regular scifi stuff, there is always a kind of detachment, that is not there with PCP. it brings the phuture home.

this focus on its own "scifi" earned PCP a special place in the history of electronic music - or rather, put it on a level of its own - maybe a planet of its own.
