UNCANNY VALLEY

The clouds pile up in the Dresden's autumn sky, but Uncanny Valley still sees a little bit of blue on the horizon. And why not looking on the bright side of life for a change? It's appropriate. At least if you have five killer tracks in your bag. Anyway, the collaboration with the Leipzig graphic designer Doppeldenk proved to be very fruitful and has now produced the fourth of seven children. So, after "Pink", "Red" and "Orange", here is "Blue". May life be good to you. The record opens with the aptly titled, Chicago-inspired "Mind Trip" by Credit 00, the Aldous Huxley from your neighborhood. The Leipziger takes you on a journey on your own nerve pathway with occasional stops at the hottest spots in your body. Local buddy Gnista is piling up layer by layer for the UK meets Electro affair that is "Playtime Worktime". It's an atmospheric monster that needs to be climbed first. But as soon as this is done, a fresh breeze blows around your nose. In "Brecht Hat Er", the mysterious Dresden underground formation AGB spreads wisdom in staccato mode, accompanied by Cold Wave-like music, which could also have been created in the shadows of the Berlin Wall. After a long time of hiatus, there is also a sign of life again from Uncanny Valley's Break SL, who proves with "Bye Bye 627" that he still masters the art of producing House music that is as edgy as it is catchy. In similar veines comes "In Transit" from Qnete who channels the ghosts in his machines into an emotional and powerful house track.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: Another killer outing for Uncanny Valley here, who enlist a quintet of underground all-stars for this V/A 12". Credit 00 drops a technicolour jacker which redraws Chicago acid in cartoon form, Gnista fuses a 93 warehouse rave with e-e-e-lectro, Break SL and Qnete are on house duty and AGB steal the show with the NNDW/Cold Wave jam "Brecht Hat Er".

Uncanny Valley continue their 50th release celebrations with another V/A 12", this time uniting a clutch of familiar faces for their first appearance on the label. After Uncanny Valley 50.1 anticipated the coming summer, Uncanny Valley 50.7 creates a slightly menacing heat lightning. The perfect soundtrack for the phenomenon that is commonly known as Aurora Polaris. The American-Australian duo The Golden Filter make their label debut on the A1 and it's a tailor-made start. "The Pull" is centered around minimalistic drum work, dystopian pads and sparse vocal dots that aim for an inward catharsis. A returnee after eight years is mysterious Mayan Gold from Dresden. His "Komm Und Entspanne" (means come and relax) rides on acidic waves and embracing synths, which drag the dance floor with their tractor beam. Norwegian Charlotte Bendiks' first track on Uncanny Valley continues the sound language she developed on Comeme. "Pasco" is a percussion-heavy track that sounds just as compelling as it is disturbingly beautiful - techno tropical, neo tribal, this is music to lose your mind to. Finally, Austin-based artist Katrina Fairlee teams up with Uncanny Valley-stable Sneaker for the psychedelic drum lesson that is "Oak", stripped back, smoked out and laced with tape haze - this one jacks like mad!
