Edit Select Vinyl, CD & tapes from this label at Norman Records
Two new tracks of clicking Italian tech-dance from Antonio Ruscito, courtesy of the Edit Select label. Since his last release for Edit Select, Ruscito has been digging deeper, refining his sound into the purified form you hear on this 12”. Immagini Dai Sogni doesn’t mess around with biographical details or puff, this is all about the tunes.
Of course, everybody knows about The Teste’s classic techno track The Whipe. Don’t you? Haven’t you heard of this? You should. Now the infamous Steve Bicknell and Mike Parker do their take on cult classic techno heritage for your dancefloor thumping pleasure. Never refuse when offered a delicious treat!
Shockingly influential, the abrasive, yet spacious techno of Teste’s The Wipe is here remixed by producers whose own sound is indebted to the hypnotic rhythm. Handling the famous material with care, Claudio PRC provides a sharp reworking whilst Edit Select makes the minimal material even sparser. 12” vinyl from Edit Select.
Big room head wobbler from Mark Broom. On Untitled he brings us two colossus techy jams. Side A jacks right from this off and tumps on through with sparse hand claps, some sketchy white-ish noise which is joined by an ominous gust of unknown origins. It builds up and drops off but leaves the kick going to keep the pace. On the flip the dub takes you even deeper and darker. Out on 12" vinyl from Edit Select.
Two very different remixes of Teste's 1992 classic techno floor-filler The Wipe, coming from Rrose and Dino Sabatini. There's a series of these remixes, overseen by Scottish DJ Tony Scott, and Canadian duo Teste themselves. This is just the first part. Available on clear vinyl 12", a truly classic track re-jiggled.
'The Wipe' by Teste rocked the techno world on its release way back in 1992 on Richie Hawtin's Probe imprint. 22 years on, Edit Select has resurrected and updated the track for 21st century listeners, lending its primal pulsating force a neo-futurist sheen. Not only that but Teste himself joins forces with Edit Select after a 21-year absence on the flipside for brand new track 'Ascend'.
