Some really nice old-school sounding dark beats from your favorite label. Skam has been killing it lately (between this and Fear Ratio).

 

Bleep writeup:

 

https://bleep.com/release/102442-afrodeutsche-break-before-make

 

Break Before Make is the debut album from Manchester-based Ghanaian/Russian/German artist AFRODEUTSCHE. A shining example of Skam Records doing what they do best, delivering some of the North of England's finest industrial leaning electro.

Currently holding down a regular must check NTS show and in recent years performed live on bills alongside some of Detroit's finest, Dopplereffekt and C2. AFRODEUTSCHE's debut album arrives in low key style via the legendary Northern powerhouse Skam. Musically, Break Before Make builds bridges between the Detroit techno and electro cornerstones of influence, yet this is music that views the motor city and Manchester in a similar way to the early Modern Love x Basic Channel Berlin connex. Parallels are drawn between the vast open landscapes of the spaces between both the D and MCR with a cold selection of funky radar bleep techno pulses. Beamed in with a joint love of UR, Drexciya and Mills but also the more electronic end of Factory Records, Marcus Intalex's deep liquid DNB and the early trouble at mill material of Pendle Coven and Andy Stott's Unknown Exception.

Break Before Make is a killer debut album form a name we are sure to be seeing more of in the future, for now, let's keep our fingers crossed for some vinyl on this one...

Cat number is a cassette, but no cassette available anywhere... :(

 

Lol, also why isn't this available in the Skam Bleepstore but you still can get it from the Bleep.com proper?

i finally grabbed this last night when i went to grab the mira calix from bleep. that first track hooked me big time.  already listened through it twice this morning. it's really nice and hypnotic and kind of cinematic but has a groovy detached vibe. really digging it. it's minal and simple in some ways but complex or crafty in others. sleek but fuzzy. 

 

nice record. will be in heavy rotation

Liked it ... but in the end I just put on Drexciya and UR instead.

 

Guess I'm growing old and jaded ...

 

Agreed. Not bad, but I'm not feeling it. Nothing stands out enough for me to listen to it. Is this middle of the road electronica? SKAM?

i'm still digging it a lot. i like it even more than when i first got into it. it's so groovy. nice hooks. but subtle and crafty. btw the afroduetsche mix on resident advisor (i think?) is really nice mix of new old techno electro  hip hop stype beats.

      A magnificent spread of musical expression in four parts with proceeds going towards Unicef. Highly Recommended - check out compilation volumes one and two, too - or just get the  whole discography, which is the most affordable option as everything they've released is worth your while.

      Check out Volume 1 as well. Tracks to move your feet - maybe even the rest of your body. Or just nod your head to the beat. Or tap something with your finger. Do something.

      I put up another digital EP of reverb-heavy, bassline-driven dancefloor-friendly IDMish Detroity techno on bandcamp. The default track above is very techno but I think folks around here will like the opener, "Night Gardening" better- came out very Analord / Cheetah EP. Can't seem to link to that track so you're gotta go the link above and get it from there 🙂
