Kouhei Matsanuga’s Dance Classics LP series on PAN hits its third installment in fine style. Like the previous two volumes Kouhei uses a combination of classic techno palette and fresh sounds to create his vision of techno which is both imminently accessible and dancefloor friendly but retains a warped edge indebted to his more “experimental” works.
I witnessed this man work a Newcastle beard stroking avant-garde crowd to it’s knees. There were shouts and groans of pure ecstasy as he slung his grooves from the speaker stack. A few tracks here sound very familiar to me so I’m assuming he unleashed them that very evening. Where this series really comes into it’s own is that knowledge of what works on a dancefloor coupled with neat production tricks which keep the momentum exciting, locking into grooves and back out then back in. Straight up techno one minute then fucked up shit the next, always with good party vibes. Some totally ace tracks on here that work just as well at home as they do in a club.
Top class twisted electronic funk, as expected from this most talented Japanese producer who’s seemingly got endlessly inventive beats and an enviable bass cache up his sleeve. '766' makes me think of a less monotonous update of the classic Jeff Mills remix of Cyrus - Enforcement. Oh and just clock that proper amazing gnarly filter action on industrial cruncer '811', Like whut?!??!? Totally recommended.
