Raveline: "Compilation of the Month May 2008!"

When looking back on the development of electronic
dance music during the past twenty years in fast
forward mode, one of the few remaining constants is
the beat: living metre of the club, catalyser of
motor activity, heartbeat of the dancer. But why?
Meanwhile, the trendsetters of the current
electronica scene follow a more differentiated
approach. Pace and rhythmicity, the syncopic chords
and sequences and, last but not least, deep emotional
worlds of sound are positioning this new form of
electronic dance music clearly in a club context
without the bass drum playing her sometimes even
crushing role. Finally, energetic tracks with
musicality and sensual passion can be produced
without drums very well. Now, Elektrolux mastermind
Alex Azary applies himself to this phenomenon by the
first and definitely ground-breaking compilation in
the still young year 2008. This is just a logical
consequence as Alex Azary, together with his
co-producer Gabriel Le Mar, already anticipated a
comparable sound aesthetics at his gigs at the UK
cult club Orbit, Leeds, about ten years ago. This
hybrid of club music and experimental electronics
also characterizes the joint productions of Alex
Azary and Gabriel Le Mar's brand new Subsonic Park
project in terms of pace, deepness and the
unterstanding of dub. On 'The Beatless Collection',
two tracks of this project can be found. The other
compilation contributors are Kompakt producers Gui
Boratto and Hiroshi Watanabe (aka Kaito), Anders
Trentemøller (Copenhagen) Joris Voorn, Chymera, Ovum
and Delsin ambassador of Ireland, Taho or Deadmau5 -
the list just reads like the who is who of current
club music. Many of the tracks now are released on CD
for the first time.
