Well, Chris Moss Acid always delivers a no-bull-shit-attitude with his acid!!
This is the second Autonomous Africa EP, the idea being that one EP is released each year and all proceeds are donated to a charity in Africa. Last year’s first volume raised funds for Médecins Sans Frontières operations in Africa. This release will raise funds for the Mtandika Mission in Tanzania (more info on that below). Through speaking with Midland, i found out that he grew up in Tanzania and that his parents ran the aforementioned charity so I suggested that this release aimed to contribute to that. Midland and Auntie Flo (who also contributed to the first edition of this project) both kindly donated exclusive tracks.
The tracks are
A1) Midland – Checkbob
A2) JD Twitch – Olaiya
B1) Auntie Flo – Water of Life
B2 JD Twitch – JuJu

Seventeen years after it’s first release, Delsin is soon to hit the landmark catalog number of 100. Truth is, taking into account choice re-issues and specials such as the recent house series, there have already been scores more than 100 releases. Nevertheless, in that time the Dutch label has become synonymous with a wide range of timeless sounds from house to techno to dub to electronica, nurturing and championing some of the most respect names in the scene.
To mark the occasion, the label is to release five new various artist EPs throughout the rest of the year. Besides a special collector’s box edition, all EPs will be offered separately. All fifteen tracks will also be compiled onto one CD.
“After many different life cycles, with this compilation I try a bit to go back to the core of Delsin, to showcase more soulful but still raw techno sounds from a selection of key artists who best represent the label,” says label boss Marsel Delsin. “The tracks are all individual offerings but are tied together with the common themes of the label, and as a compilation will paint a nice overall picture.”
The five EPs will contain tracks from newbies and old favourites alike, including Sawlin and Delta Funktionen, John Beltran and Conforce, Redshape and Herva, Ross 154 and Mike Dehnert and more. The first – like all of them – features three tracks, one each from Gerry Read, Unbroken Dub and Claro Intelecto.
Its Manchester’s Claro Intelecto who goes first with ‘Fighting The Blind Man’, a typically widescreen and atmospheric cut with rich but grainy pads, warm techno pulses underneath and plenty of expertly design synths gurgling in the foreground.
New school house hero Gerry Read then offers a typically rough jam, ‘Granny Bag’. A melange of sandy hits, smeared synths and hunched kick drums, it might be one of his deepest cuts yet before Siberian producer Unbroken Dub then layers warm pads on rolling, buried deep kick drums and has all sorts of analogue sci-fi lines racing across their face.
As has done Delsin itself over the years, this special series of releases looks to join the dots between the past, present and future of techno.
