J-Zbel

How I Made My Mom & Sis' My Sexbot Slaves

Repress of this highly sought after 7" from Brothers From Different Mothers - a painfully hype label showcasing the best of the modern shamanic and esoteric warehouse music scenes. Think Pilotwings, DJ Normal 4 and this, tasty double-A side 7" release from J-Zbel.

One track split across two themes; "ZHF" first comes as 'poppers mix' which aptly describes the hazy, strobe-lit flair and disorientation after a massive hoof of the world's favourite room deoderizers whilst this fractures and very technoid breaks journey unravels behind the backdrop of narcosis. Expertly constructed and arranged for maximum drama on all-nite dancefloors, that wide-screen, 'rainforest breaks' sound also favoured by the Aiwo lot is perfectly reprezented here.

Flip for 'gale mix' of "ZHF" which ditches any expansive psychedelic qualities for a snarling 303-driven acid bangers. There's still lashings of breaks, but overall the vibe is much proggier and conjures up images of filthy warehouse inhabited by militant mutant dancers all locked into a united, coital throb.g

    Open Mind (Joey Beltram)

    The Trance

    Another sure-shot legit reissue from the Easy Streets vaults. Unbelievably from 1990, this forward thinking slab of dark and moody breakbeat techno courtesy of Open Mind (aka Joey Beltram) hits the spot every time! Harking back to the glory days of Euro-techno, pre-jungle, the dark-side and all in-between.... Need we say more? The eerie atmospheres, epic synth breaks and stuttering drum machine programming combines to create the super heavy sound that early Beltram is known for and "The Trance" is one record that any serious techno or electro lover will need in their bag. Rare as hen's teeth, hard to cop and a total under the radar classic, "The Trance" is here again, and it's not taking any prisoners!

    As we said before, this monster dropped on Easy Street in '90, and has been caned by the most discerning of DJ's and diggers across the galaxy ever since. Every home should have a copy of this, no collection is complete without it. A record that will never go out of style & will always do the requisite damage on any dancefloor it's dropped on. Essential.

    Shout out to Easy Street, %100 legit re-issue, re-master & re-press from the original tapes, essential wax!
