Kommune1 - MOTUS (Magic05) by Magic Wire published on 2012/10/30 13:00:46 +0000 Artist: Kommune1 Title: MOTUS / ShadowKick Label: Magic Wire Recordings Cat No: Magic05 Format: 10” vinyl and digital download Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org Release Date: 10th December 2012 xxx The debut release from up-and-coming artist “Kommune1” on Lone’s Magic Wire label welcomes the merger of Warehouse-Techno vibes with the accessibility of House. These compositions take shape in both the tracks “MOTUS” and “Shadowkick”, each displaying the loyalist replications of everything that makes a head-nodding, foot-stomping, wall-shaking track. The A-side track “MOTUS” displays the ethics of both Berghain thumping 4/4 rhythms, complete with big builds, subtle dynamic changes and a drop that would never cease to throw any listener into a frenzy of inexplicable groove and motion. A nod to the early days of Detroit Techno and Chicago House is also remnant in the track, with its heavy bass-loops, and restrained vocal phrases. After receiving support from Blawan, Ben UFO, NT89, Pariah, Dauwd, Happa et al, the track has been intensifying the dancefloor spaces of the last few months, receiving praise both in internet circles and DJ’s top 10 lists. An assured must have in any DJ’s vinyl bag for the remainder of 2012 and the coming year. B-side “Shadowkick” follows in a similar stylistic notion as the previous track. With the main aim being the destruction of the dancefloor still, “Shadowkick” is another big Techno-House track, emphasising on the power of the bassline and a hard rhythm. Subtle dub-like-chords, crisp percussion, and dynamic alterations all combine to act as a perfect DJ tool. The breakdown section of the track is enough to see a floor of “Hands in the air” before all hell seemingly breaks loose when the rhythms punches back into the main emphasis of the track.
