Yan Strickers !Organism imprint has gone from strength to strength since its launch in 2008, releasing records from some of Switzerlands hottest producers as well as key international talent. At the heart of the labels success has been Stricker himself, a DJ/Producer/Promoter who has distilled his years in the music scene into a string of outstanding singles for !Organism. His previous releases have seen the labels profile skyrocket and have garnered support from the likes of Adam Beyer, The Advent, Christian Smith, Joel Mull etc.
For his latest single Stricker offers up the excellent It Was in 1991. The EP opens with It Was, an emotive and driving slice of stripped minimal techno that uses pads, stabs and white noise sweeps over a sparse rhythm track to create a heads down, locked in groove.
The second of the two original recordings comes in the form of In 1991, a glitchy, minimal workout that offsets its darker elements with some great hypnotic melodies. The track gives a definite nod to the retro sounds of the 90s dance music whilst retaining a fresh production sound.
Finally German DJ/Producer Heron takes time out from his busy touring and production schedule to remix In 1991 delivering his Lost in the 90s rework. Herons mix takes the original parts and twists them into rolling techno opus that builds and builds for over ten minutes, quality stuff.
This is yet another solid release from Yan Stricker and his !Organism label and further cements the reputation of both.
