Arabia EP

by Samuli Kemppi



Despite releasing on vinyl since 2006 it was Samuli Kempi's debut on Ostgut Ton with the track 'Vangel' that really kick started his career. Selected by Marcel Dettmann to appear on his scene-defining compilation 'Berghain 02' the track received across the board support and sent Samuli's recognition sky high.

The 'Arabia EP' is Samuli's first full release on Perc Trax but he has appeared once before on the label remixing Derek Plaslaiko's 'The Glass Bead Game' to great effect. Across the two main tracks here Samuli shows both his tough and sensitive side. First up is 'Heat Of 1000 Degrees', an armour-plated, bass-bin rattler if there ever was such a thing and purpose made to cause havoc at Berghain. On the b-side 'Spirit Of Elibop' is a smoother ride, as a reverberant electric piano glides over Samuli's clean yet tough rhythms.

First up to the remix plate is Perc Trax's transatlantic twosome Donor/Truss. Twisting the main piano riff over a juddering electronic groove the duo turn in one of their most accomplished productions to date. Reverb-drenched claps punctuate the rolling bassline as Donor/Truss serve up an abstract yet dance floor friendly interpretation which makes their forthcoming EP an even more mouth-watering prospect.

Finally white-hot sheet-metal botherers Dead Sound & Videohead follow up their recent remix of Go Hiyama with a futher step into their junkyard of noise. Watch out for their first Perc Trax EP coming next on the label.
