SUCTION

Lowfish is back! The electro veteran, who’s been programming 808s since the early ‘90s, returns to Suction Records, the label he co-founded and debuted on in 1997, for his first release since 2011. This is suction046 - the “Hypersensitivity” EP. It’s been a while, but as the sprinkling of Lowfish compilation appearances - on labels like Analogical Force and Fundamental Records - over the intervening years have shown, Lowfish isn’t interested in radical changes; it’s all about quality and consistency. Flawlessly produced 808 drums, meticulously processed for maximum slam, combine with Lowfish’s trademark synthesizer melodies and heavily-manipulated dialogue samples… best heard on standout cuts “Apr294ms” - a melodic techno/electro dancefloor killer - and “Favourable Reports” - a slice of 808 synthpop with melodic nods to vintage OMD and Gary Numan.

New RX-101 on Suction!!! Amazing Detroit inspired techno from this underrated producer.

When we first discovered RX-101’s output via Suction circa 2015, we knew we’d stumbled upon something very special. Five EPs and four albums later, and now a firmly established as a crucial artist in the Aphex/Rephlex/IDM cannon, Suction Records are still mining this elusive Dutch producer’s 1997-1999 archive of unreleased live-to-cassette recordings, and aren’t even close to scraping the bottom of the barrel.

As the title suggests, “New Discoveries” is not just more of the same - this is a new side of the RX-101 sound. Rather than taking inspiration from braindance heroes like Aphex Twin and Bochum Welt, “New Discoveries” is a reflection of Erik Jong (aka RX-101)’s love for classic Detroit techno - Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Carl Craig, et al. Like some of the UK producers who mined this sound for inspiration, from B12 to Kirk DiGiorgio, the influence of Detroit techno is crystal clear, even if the sound has a distinctly EU/UK flair.

Available digitally, on limited vinyl LP in a reverse-board jacket, or on CD. The CD comes in a reverse-board digipack, adding 2020’s 6-track “Hearts Utd.” EP (including a remix by Brainwalztera) as an exclusive CD bonus. All physical formats include a Bandcamp download card inside.
