  • Description 530Techno, the boutique record label based in rural Northern California, closes out 2011 with the seminal Remote Locations EP from Austin, Texas based Pointbender (Thoughtless Music, Harmonious Discord). Deep, warm analog electronics fully expose the soul in the machine throughout this dynamic EP with remixes from legendary west-coast house producer, Jay Tripwire (Poker Flat, Nordic Trax, Seasons) and soul-tech super hero, The Munk Machine.

    Semicircle, is a dubbed out journey dripping with the humid vibes of a torrential rain storm. Epic and beautiful, Pointbender's artistry here is in his ability to capture a feeling and sense of place in his music. Pointbender's trademark keys and deep, bumpin tech-house beats keep the groove locked for both original tracks. Remote Locations takes us into funkier territory with an irresistibly bumpin bass line. As the track progresses with his excellent use of live electronics, it expresses both the anticipation, excitement and the sorrow of being away from home.

    On remix duties for Remote Locations, Jay Tripwire summons the cosmic funk, with his signature brand of trippy west-coast tech-house. Bumpin up the acid in the bassline and adding some eargasmic three-dimensional lasers into the mix, he adds immense depth and spatialization to the track. Play this at 4 am on a sweaty dance floor of underground house heads and watch the impending freakdom. Fast forward to Alpha City 2144 and soul-tech super hero, The Munk Machine transforms Semicircle into a futuristic monster of minimal grooving techno. Keeping the deep vibe and atmosphere of the original track but catapulting us into a synthetic Blade Runner-eque landscape of circuits and bass, The Munk Machine remix is the go to track for the main room.
