After one year ACHT has released a number of records from emerging producers of Germany, Belgium, Spain, Netherlands, Japan and Russia. This time ACHT presents a new little compilation which has called “Permanent“. The compilation has included three different tracks of LetKolben, Giovanni Molinaro and Mobile Soul System, with innovation and groovy minimal sounds. Each artist presents a different notion of minimal house music, and every track is emotive in its own way.
LetKolben presents an epic masterpiece full of emotions and spirit of Spain. “El Viaje Del Cajon”, it is how Kolben has named his track, is a pristine minimal-house production that comes with a great beat, spanish voice, very nice strings-sounds and hypnotic chords. This track is focusing not only on the guitar melody, but on the atmosphere around it. Given the range of this track, Kolben clearly has the taste to put together a diverse mix of sounds, without straying too much from 4/4 beats. LetKolben is one of the artists that reflects the sound of the label like only a few others out there: Minimal House with the right amount of energy and spiced up with amazing grooves, manic synths, percussions and live instruments.
Giovanni Molinaro has prepared wonderful sounds for the new ACHT Release and what he came up with for us is simply amazing! He’s a minimal music painter… His magical track “Mantra” leads us through rhythms of kick, hi-hats, smattering of hand drums, rattles and emulates exotic voices and string sounds. Listening to the sound of “Mantra” almost appears like reading an acoustic book, literally takes you on a journey of sounds with an oriental flavor and meet all the shimmering effects and crazy noises. We don’t know what will you feel about Giovanni’s sounds, but for us this track is one of the greatest of our record label.
“Not Be Silent” is a deep minimal track by Mobile Soul System with a mental atmosphere and spoken word vocals inside. Besides the mystic and experimental side this track also contains energetic and trippy sounds. M.S.S. doesn’t go too deep into a dark sound and continues to follow a mood of great meaning of speech together with an unassuming drum track that whips up a wicked, slow groove without much fanfare. As result is deep and kind hard-edged dub music that lies somewhere between ingenuity and insanity. “Not Be Silent” takes down the speed, kill the bass drum and bring it back in… sometimes itʼs so easy to make a goosebumps on your body.
“Permanent” is a great release with some different and deep sound tracks. And all this is coming from our great label Family… We will find out if there is more atmosphere and magic to be found under the mysterious surface of ACHT.
