9/10 Ant Staff review, 06 June 2013
My techno bible tells me that eight out of ten techno heads said it was a good day when ever a new Rrose record found its way onto their 1210. If you consider yourself a techno freak and don't yet own any of his records then you should take your Plastikman T-shirt and promptly wipe your bottom with it. 'Waterfall' was of course that killer track from the 'Merchant Of Salt '12" that has been twisting the minds and bodies of 909 worshipping fiends into new shapes.. Here we get an early extended mix which brilliantly captures a very classic techno anthem sorta sound but manages to fit it with what's currently going down in the scene.
Berlin resident and Stroboscopic Artefacts bossMAN Lucy is that chap that a few people I know reckoned was a girl (What's in a name? that which we call Rrose, by any other name would smell as sweet. - hehehe). His mix is what I consider to be a proper remix i.e actually remixing the original tracks sounds and not just doing one of yer own tunes with a token sample from the source material and then calling it a remix. This is a fine mix, faithful to the original, slightly rearranging the pace and given some of Lucy's own dark dubbed out flavour.
Plus there's bonus action too with a new ten minute Rrose track called 'Shrouds'. As the title suggests this one is dark, mysterious and destined to destroy global dance floors. No shit this will take the fucking roof off any techno club guaranteed.

Nope, instead we are basically a kind of crap lo-fi Argos for vinyl records. So, instead of trudging all the way to sunny Holbeck in anticipation of being able to flick through shelf after shelf of releases, please place your orders online first and use our 'In-store collect' option in the checkout.

Related artist data is provided by Spotify. Why?
- They are much, much better at writing clever algorithms than us.
- They have much, much more data to set their algorithms on.
We think this is a better option than stinking up your browsing experience here on Norman Records with a crummy implementation of our own. (We only wish we were this clever: Artist Explorer.)
Spotify generate recommendations based on the listening patterns of their massive audience, so they are generally pretty good. The data does throw up some odd combinations though. So, if you do spot anything daft have a little chuckle at their robots but please don't contact us about it. There is nowt we can do.
