HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO DRESDEN’S MUSICAL GALAXY by Albrecht Wassersleben

HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO DRESDEN’S MUSICAL GALAXY by Albrecht Wassersleben

Dresden’s club scene is different from those in other cities. Although there are plenty of normal clubs, off spaces, festival halls and open-air locations, most of the relevant spots don’t offer programs curated by regular bookers. Instead, 99 percent of electronic music parties are self-organized: crews have to rent the space, rent or carry their...

HHV review for "Connection Lost" (German)

HHV review for “Connection Lost” (German)

“Manche Menschen schlafen nicht und oftmals ist Musik dran schuld. »Trying To Hide But Then I Cried« ist genau so einer. Der dauerekstatische Opener von Massimiliano Pagliaras zweitem Teil seiner »Connection Lost«-Serie für das Dresdner Label Uncanny Valley bringt die stoische Zweckmäßigkeit von Euro-Disco-Beats und schubbernden Basslines mit irisierenden, psychedelischen Elementen zusammen.” Read on…

XXY: Albrecht Wassersleben im Interview für Groove Magazin

Was bedeutet Vielfalt? Im Club-Kontext denken bei dem Begriff wohl nicht wenige zu allererst an eine musikalische Bandbreite, die es wagt, über den Tellerrand von Techno und House hinauszuschauen. Doch wie steht es auf Partys um die Vielfalt in Sachen Geschlechtern und Identitäten? das ganze Interview bei Groove Magazin (weiterlesen)

Audio Love by Ran$om Note for Chinaski’s “Rivers Edge”

“The five track EP channels gorgeous, glassy synths and 80s hints with varying tempos to achieve a nicely varied package. Highlights for me are the opening “Disaster” which has a lovely pace and energy to it, and also the closing “Never Look Back” which is a lazy yet captivating house number….” Read on here.

Froh Froh Review for UV030 (German)

Froh Froh Review for UV030 (German)

“Mit einem höchst überragenden Track – vielleicht sogar seinem bisher besten. ”Coochie“ vereint so hymnisch und selbstverständlich raumgreifende House-Deepness mit zuvor wilder und enorm aufgeladener Breaks-Spannung. Dass sich aus dem neurotischen Intro später noch so viel Sanftheit herausschälen kann, um am Ende nochmals zu eskalieren, ohne dass zusammengekleistert klingt – groß….” Check the full review…

“Heart” gets reviewed by Groove Magazine

Joel Alter’s debut album “Heart” gets reviewed by Groove Magazine. “Auf Alters Debütalbum tritt der Dancefloor zu Gunsten eines sehr klassischen Pop-Verständnisses zwischen Sechziger-affinen Harmonien und discolastigen Momenten zurück.

First up is UK dance veteran DMX Krew with “Astro Logical,” a propulsive cosmic electro track that flits and fizzes. Sandrow M’s live version of “Prayervan,” which first came out on Uncanny Valley...
