‘Resampled’ takes Stroboscopic Artefacts’ Sampler Series and tangles it with reflexivity. Out of the Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta Samplers’ original 16 tracks, 8 of the producers have remixed a track from the other 8 artists. The creative process goes inverse and the original cuts get chiseled into, sanded down or polished bright. Part Two sees Modern Heads take Perc’s ‘Wooden Art’ and create bold broken beat, the ‘Jumplex Remix’ is knitted, knotted and calcified. Forward Strategy Group’s ‘Inside the Shadows’ faces Dadub’s ‘Metropolis Remix’, the perfect descriptor for this skyscrapingly macrocosmic reworking. Frank Martiniq’s ‘Defiance Remix’ pulls Sasse’s original from tech-house and into the realm of ambitious, ecstatic brilliance. Claudio PRC’s ‘Perspective Mix’ granulates ‘Abstract Subway’ to the point where all that is left is a dark, inky pool of pure harmonics, which draws Part Two to a laconic and lingering close.

  • Speedy J Great project! 
  • Xhin All remixes are great. 
  • Norman Nodge Good material for my next warm-up in Berghain. 
  • Tim Caspar Boehme - Groove Mag / De:Bug Very impressive. 
  • Ron Schepper - Textura Marvelous material from SA. 
  • FWD Entertainment Yes, great again! 
  • Studio Rockers Mag Quality stuff as always. 
  • James Manning - TEA Sonically potent!

‘Resampled’ takes Stroboscopic Artefacts’ Sampler Series and tangles it with reflexivity. Out of the Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta Samplers’ original 16 tracks, 8 of the producers have remixed a track from the other 8 artists. The creative process goes inverse and the original cuts get chiseled into, sanded down or polished bright. Part 1 opens with Lucy’s ‘Twofold Remix’ of Xhin’s ‘Arrival’ where what starts out as 4/4 techno resolves into an experimental dew. Jonas Kopp’s ‘Argatian Remix’ attacks the break-beat structure of Lagrange Point to the point where it could be an early Mole People release, this is Kopp as you have never heard him before. Hironori Takahashi’s ‘Medue’ is pushed into deep ephemerality with Obtane’s ‘Puppetmachine Remix’ taking it to a weightless, beat less place. Donor’s ‘Distress Remix’ of Chevel’s ‘Trevisun’ compresses the swung baselines to create a crackling background and with the force that comes to the fore it makes for a very pithy conclusion to Part One.

  • Luke Slater Always the pleasing unexpected. 
  • Darko Esser Very high quality as always on SA. 
  • Perc A far-reaching EP of remixes. 
  • FWD Entertainment This is one of the strongest ep-length releases on Stroboscopic yet. Love the sci-fi vibe. 
  • Little White Earbuds (Per Bojsen-Moller) SA delivers again with these re-imaginings of the Sampler series. 
  • Groove (Tim Caspar Boehme) Great remix collection. 
  • Textura Magazine Once again we're presented with a brand of forward-thinking experimental techno that's leagues beyond the norm in terms of imagination and artistry.

SADIG004_300dpi

A sample is a small part of the whole, selected because it’s a premier example of its class. The Delta Sampler is composed by four tracks that traverse electronic music possibilities from straight up techno to oblique drone. Opener “LX1” sees Lucy and Xhin teaming up for their first collaboration. Dark, slightly brooding, the meeting of their minds is mapped out with incisive kicks, knotty dub and hi hat sizzles. Jonas Kopp “M33” is a 4/4 structure filled with discontent. The track strains with aqueous grumbles and tense peak time techno emerges. Inigo Kennedy and Isodyne borrow their structure from the observations of physics. Their “Lagrange Point” is a bassline that fluxes between a background of reverberating pads and a foreground of slithering chords, but somehow remains constant. From here the sampler closes with “Inside The Shadows”, Forward Strategy Group’s malevolent slice of drone. The complex sequence of loops builds a reflective atmosphere that revels in the hidden.

  • Laurent Garnier Another great release on the Stroboscopic Artefacts. Will play for sure. 
  • Surgeon Great work again on Stroboscopic Artefacts. 
  • Chris Liebing 5 out of 5 
  • Perc 5/5 Yes, yes, yes. Great EP. Maybe one of the best overall EP's of the year. All tracks are very strong and the M33 track is especially savage. Love it, full support. 
  • FWD Entertainment 5/5 Awesome release - maybe my favorite sampler yet. Full review on FWD 
  • Eric Cloutier (The Bunker) Pretty killer collection of tracks here! lucy + xhin sure knocked it out of the park, its great to see inigo kennedy back on production, and the fsg drone track is fantastic. 
  • TEA Great to see SA keeping to their ethos of previous releases. LX1 sounds and looks very exciting, M33 is proper no nonsense cut, Lagrange Point is dub techno gem and Inside the Shadows continues SA's intelligent, forward thinking approach to electronic music.

SADIG003_300dpi

A sample is a small part of the whole, selected because it’s a premier example of its class. The Gamma Sampler sees Stroboscopic Artefacts collect together four cuts that take you from the dance floor right into the ether. It starts resolutely dance floor as Modern Heads open with the brilliantly constructed “1969”. The track forms a perfect arc. It begins with pared-down bass, opens out as melody surfaces from deep below, stretches upwards as synth patterns bubble into being, before the other side of the curve elegantly returns to the origin. “Fade” comes from New York’s Donor. Full of offkilter, swung bass lines, its distinctly strange sound seems to harbour more than a drop of contempt. Abstract Souls unleash “Abstract Subway” full of swishing, swooping patterns. As if sampling the act of perception itself, it‘s blurred, charcoaled black but flecked with colour. The sampler is closed by Claudio PRC’s “Aphelion” which seems to transpose the sound of a planet when its orbit has curled far from the sun.

  • SIlent Servant Solid Release. This new Sampler is fucking awesome! All tracks are strong, but 1969 & Abstract subway are standouts for me. will chart for sure. 
  • Peter Van Hoesen Superb release, once again. All four tracks have strong identities. Personal favs are the Modern Heads and Abstract Souls tracks. 
  • Tommy Four Seven One of my favourite current labels, great release again! 
  • Dustin Zahn Wow, all tracks are highly playable. Stroboscopic Artefacts is shaping up to be a great label! 
  • Todd Burns (Resident Advisor) Music to get lost to at home and for DJs with gigs on Mars. 
  • Erci Cloutier (The Bunker) hard to pick a winner when all of them are so interesting sounding, nice collection of heady beats we have here! 
  • Perc Amazing stuff from one of the best new labels of recent years. My favourite track is 'Fade' (I has to support the Perc Trax artists!) but it is all good.

SADIG002_BETA_SAMPLER_ARTWORK

A sample is a small part of the whole, selected because it’s a premier example of its class. Stroboscopic Artefacts present the Beta Sampler, showcasing four startling fresh cuts. From Perc’s exacting mind comes the brilliant “Wooden Art”. Over a bed of bubbling dub, dystopian pads slice through a gnashing wall of beat patterns. Next comes “Trevisun”, with its Detroit minimalistic approach. Chevel brings us a perfectly dizzying 10am track, replete with lopsided beats, viscous synths. Then Frank Martiniq transports us to an enchanted afterhours land with “My Visor”. This dubtechno masterpiece takes us back to a time where the elegance of synthesis and dubbing was of paramount importance. The baton is lastly handed to Berlin house giant Sasse who proudly pushes his sound in a totally new direction on “Face2Face With Reality”. Here Sasse collides his house instincts with dub know-how, creating an inspirational hybrid.

  • Norman Nodge Nice collection of slamming tracks. Like especially the deepness of the Martinq track and the roughness of Perc´s tune. 
  • Agoria What a release !! Usually samplers are boring, this one is close to being perfect! Will chart of course. 
  • Peter Van Hoesen Trevisun is the one for me. Perc's track is also a winner. Thanks! 
  • Par Grindvik Great package once again, one of my new favorite labels! Thanks! 
  • Cio D'Or Great Release for all Clubtimes! For the soul my favorite is My Visor from Frank Martiniq: Really touching & beautiful! Thank you Stroboscopic Artefacts! 
  • Laurent Garnier Very interesting ep. Organic, experimental and moody. Will present on the radio. Niiiice. 
  • Jonas Kopp Great Ep, I will play all the versions, in differents moments of my dj set... 
  • Markus Kavka Toller sampler, der einen äußerst fortschrittlichen entwurf von techno präsentiert. Vier hochspannede tracks, jeder für sich ein kleines kunststück. Vier a-seiten, vier mal daumen hoc

SADIG001_Cover_300DPI

A sample is a small part of the whole, selected because it’s a premier example of its class. In the Alpha Sampler, Stroboscopic Artefacts has collected together four tracks from very different artists. Opener Obtane’s “Now I Am Blind And I Can See You” quivers and flicks, whispers and crackles itself into existence. From here, Dadub unleashes “Blue Whale’s Dub”, an immense creature trawls deep waters, but as the drop comes, iridescent light pours in. In contrast, Japanese Hironori Takahashi takes us to the noisy chaos of Tokyo with “Medue”. Through this carnivorous beast, Takahashi plays with depth perception. Weighty bassline structures, uplifting piano samples and persistent hi-hats collide. The closer is from Xhin. “Arrival” is, in his own words, “an environmental sound design experience”. Even though the bassline is entirely discarded, this is no Xhin-lite. Instead, a simmered down symphony: elemental, ecstatic and most of all, terrifying.

  • Len Faki Totally perfect to my Berghain sets. 
  • Edit-Select Full support, really like what SA is doing. 
  • Cio D'Or An amazing record from A to Z! A journey through deep Dubtechno, timeless, strong and beautiful, from experimental to full power & warm sounds! Full support! 
  • Perc 'Now I Am Blind And I Can See You' is my favourite track here, very nice sounds and 'Arrival' is a good tool for my sets. Full support. Thanks. 
  • Par Grindvik Love the whole release! Timeless quality all the way. Happy to receive! Thanks! 
  • Laurent Garnier Full of organic deepness. Full support from me. 
  • Jonas Kopp Great Sampler! I like all the tracks, but I will play the Obtane's track... darky dubby trippy techno :) Many thanks. 
  • Kevin Gorman Beautiful dark and uncompromising music! Many thanks.
