Review: In accordance to the original concept of Polegroup founder Oscar Mulero, the latest volume in the label's ongoing Unknown Landscapes mix series offers up an "atmospheric and distinctive" journey through previously unheard music, this time mixed by label regular Lewis Fautzi. Beginning with the dark, intense and slowly creeping intensity of Christinne's "3562", Fautzi brilliantly joins the dots between clandestine, mind-altering dancefloor techno, buzzing rhythmic workouts, hypnotic psychedelic soundscapes, distorted drum jams, wild acid tracks and industrial strength body music, before concluding with arguably the most gripping and mind-altering cut of all: Adriana Lopez's pitch-black "In Mist".
Review: Oscar Mulero and Christian Wunsch's Spherical Coordinates collaboration may have a home away from home in Belgian techno titans Token, but their HQ will always be Pole Group. After two 12"s on Token, Mulero and Wunsch return to Spain for their fifth Spherical Coordinates record together and another masterclass in burrowing club constructions. Those techno selectors whose every weekend is spent in the booths testing the soundsystems and dancefloors of basements and warehouses will naturally gravitate towards these four cuts, where relentless drums and deep, ever evolving atmospheres rule at large.
