8/10 Ant Staff review, 31 January 2019

The superb VOITAX label boot off their new Directors Cut series of EPs with a very promising first instalment which gets going with a cracker from the one and only Umwelt. Why Umwelt doesn’t get a bit more kudos for his music is kinda weird - he’s a great producer with a proper dark and sinister sound that often recalls the menace of early I-f works on Viewlexx - think “Portrait of a Dead Girl” etc. His contribution here ‘Time Crystal’ is a great representation of his sound - futuristic, brooding, slightly acidic electro - writing with tension and unease. Proper end times Terminator shit.

Rory St John's 'Rotoscopus' is a cyborg B-boy electro slammer somewhere between a Carl Finlow and Dez Williams production, perhaps. Weighty, juddering kicks underpin deep throbbing bass and lots of innovative sci-fi machines sounds pinging around. It’s one of those tunes you might hear in a DJ Stingray or Helena Hauff set and go “Phwooooaaarrrr WTF?!?!?!”

Talker AKA Johnathan Krohn (Stave) and Karl Meier (Kalon) you may know from crackers on Downwards and Standards & Practices. Their cut ‘Inchoate’ is a solid, stripped back, functional/minimal DJ tool, somewhere between stepping techno and electro. Finally, Swarm Intelligence (Ad Noiseam, Acroplane Recordings, Earwiggle etc.) provides some dark cinematic electronica in ‘Cumulus’. His electronically sculpted clouds loom over a deconstructed jungle skeleton and are partially pierced by sunlight. A fine start to what looks to be a very nicely curated series of tracks for the club and beyond. Check the other releases we have on the label too - there’s a belter from Makaton and a sweet LP from Veronica Maximova.
