After an output with elements of Gorman’s productions, as well as variations of those elements, Mikrowave sees it’s first more or less ordinary 12″ release in a long time.

What would maybe seem at the beginning of 2009 as a direction into the digital era, Gorman gives us one of the strongest releases on the label (as well as the year) on a vinyl release – featuring not only very stripped down and some of the most rough tracks by himself, but also two other producers that have time and time again showed their production talent. Peter Van Hoesen and MLZ have a strong output of their own, but with this release, their remix capabilities are displayed in a more secure and relaxed manner. Of course, this is a good thing.

Even though a lot of focus will be put on a certain club in Germanys capital with this release, a thing that might require more careful listening is the own take all three producers show when they are combined, which has it’s blueprint set with this 12″. Carefully crafted elements that in one sense seem to be pushed hard by them, seem on the other hand very natural; as the sound structure is more close to something personal and unique. Considering that a lot of techno today is more or less dark with a pursuit of a sound where the result might not be as inspiring, it’s fresh to hear something that adapts to something else witch is yet to be defined.

It happens a few times every year that a release feels like something that you have been looking for, and Mikrowave 12 is one of those records. Just remember to listen carefully, and drop it in the right moment.

Thanks to Kevin Gorman for this release.
