Jor​-​El, Karima F, Basic Soul Unit, Christopher Rau


After PINK and RED comes ORANGE. It’s the third out of seven records for the celebrations of the 50th Uncanny Valley release. And it’s tailor-made for pure dance floor delight.

Sweden’s Jor-El aka Joel Alter spells out house music on HUMAN MATRIX with great effect. You can’t resist being dragged along by a track that is well composed down to the last tiny little detail, but always comes across light and easy. Synth stabs for the masses. Uncanny Valley-Newcomer Karima F from Oslo delivers FLACCID HOUSE, a track that feels like the perfect way to make ravers resurrect. The track is based on few, but effectively used ingredients like a hammering broken beat and those odd vocal bits. Thus, it gets to the point without detours. 

Being a scene-legend himself, Toronto’s Basic Soul Unit contributes GROTTO BOUNCE, a raw but precise nod to classic Detroit and Acid tunes. Finally, former Hamburger and now Berliner Christopher Rau is in full play mode and turns on all the equipment in the studio for PARADIJS, a wonky house track that gives you goose bumps even though he may be throwing you out of step.
