RX-101 and (not so) slow acid

I am a long time fan of Suction Records from Canada… it is even among the labels through which I started to listen to elektro music… sort of recently RX-101 was discovered by the label boss and he started releasing the music of this Dutch 1990’s project…

For me this artist was totally new… it fits the IDM stuff Suction already released perfectly… it times it sounds very Rephlex like… and the name is cool… being taken from the Roland SH-101 synth…

Already four 12″ EP’s were released… the first two in 2016 and last year two more came out… one a bit IDM inspired and with some synth stuff… the other a great EP filled with acid trax…

The first two EP’s are compiled on a CD and the second two on another CD… ant through this CD is discovered I  was playing the acid 12″ too slow… I played it at 33 RPM all the time since it arrived… and it sounded wicked… especially the slow(er) stuff… but when I played the CD I discovered the tracks were faster… and I checked the sleeve of the 12″… it said quit big 45 RPM… so well… I think I stick to the slower speed anyway as the tracks sound so great that way…

dj M. – Secret Archive Mix

Not long ago I delved into my archive to see what was there for lost treasures… with my findings I did a mixtape… this dj set was recently published by the In Disarray blog/podcast platform (In Disarray 021)… now I also put it online on my mixcloud page… but you can listen to it here too…

As said this mix features unreleased archive tracks from the Enfant Terrible vaults… the material ranges from 2003 up to 2015… so from the true beginnings of the label (first record was released in 2004) up to the very present…

For various reasons these tracks have not been released… some were part of records already mastered and with finished artwork but were withdrawn in the end… other pieces are tracks not selected for the final record which saw the light… and some of the music has a totally different story…

This mix also shows the range of synth sounds that finds its home on my label… from poppy minimal synth to more experimental IDM stuff… still all tracks have some key essentials typical for Enfant Terrible… the music is electronic, minimal and obscure…
