Stacey Pullen Goes Any Which Way

After formulating a solid team of trailblazers on the Blackflag label, owner and innovator Stacey Pullen makes a triumphant return with his first solo release of 2013, Any Which Way, a psychoactive atmosphere of distorted voices, titillating synths, and a collection of remixes to satisfy your techno palate.

We can look Any Which Way, but in the end we return to the depths of dirty, Detroit techno on this release. The journey begins with the original mix’s oscillating synths and analog sounds, calling to question the stability of the listener’s brain. Stacey’s Dirty Mug and Dub Mug remixes provide a stratospheric techno groove with teetering backbeats for that timeless Motor City vibe.

Desolat’s Martin Buttrich closes out the EP with two solid remixes, Red And Green. The Red Mix works on the main synth line heard in Pullen’s original, creating a softer enchantment of sound. The Green Mix has a funkier, deep-soul vibe with with its delicate layers of drums, synth, and subtle bass.

Pick up Stacey Pullen’s Any Which Way EP on Blackflag Recordings on May 27th.

Guy Gerber Presents The Wisdom Of The Glove

As we near the beginning of Ibiza’s 2013 season, the beloved Pacha brand aims to forge a new identity, starting with Guy Gerber’s new The Wisdom Of The Glove residency.



The Israeli curator has some major plans for the world-renowned club, so we gave him the floor to answer our most pressing questions about the Glove’s mystical allure and his hopes to make Pacha the island’s hottest destination:

Explain the meaning of “The Wisdom of the Glove”

The Wisdom of the Glove started in Mexico when I was walking around all night at the Jungle Party wearing a single white glove. Wearing a glove really puts people into character. It changes the way they interact and transmit. I really felt there was more behind it than just this, and the concept started to form a bit more. I envisioned having a party at a nightclub with a €150,000 glove in a fancy display case, security guards around it, very Damien Hirst-like. I had this idea to ridicule the last 10 years of the music scene in Ibiza, and really wanted to start a night that would go against all that and bring it back to its original feeling. That was how the Wisdom Of the Glove concept began, and it really turned more and more magical the more the night starting coming together.

What is your goal for the residency, your dream of what it will become?

My dream is that people will come and not know what to expect. I want to bring back the feeling of mystery and excitement to going out, to not knowing where the night will go and what the music and decor and crowd will be like.

Why Pacha?

Pacha has the right size: not too big, and not too small. There are many rooms–the main room, global room, funky room, terrace–and this allows movement. It makes people want to stay a long time. Also, if I did the same idea of having magicians and bringing bands like Chromatics and Four Tet anywhere else, it wouldve been pretentious. But in Pacha, it’s kind of almost ridiculous.



I also have to admit that I was surprised at how much everyone on the team was accepting this concept and knew all about these acts I wanted to bring, and how much the creative feedback inspired me. I have to say that I’ve never been so excited in my entire life, because I only hear the word “yes” in our creative discussions, and they really get the concept.



hands and lightning

What role will The Glove play in Pacha’s proposed shift away from mainstream music toward a wider range of tastes?

I’m not expecting to be the stepping stone between the mainstream and underground music at Pacha. I’m just more happy to introduce new music to some people that might maybe never have heard about it. At the same time, I’m just inviting all the same people that already like this kind of music to come into Pacha and ignore the musical legacy of it, and just see it as a wonderful venue that has a great dancefloor and a good vibe with thoughtful lineups in both rooms.

What are some of the artists you plan on having at “The Wisdom of the Glove?”

Shaun Reeves, Bill Patrick, Maayan Nidam, Phil Weeks, and others will be residents of The Glove, and there will be special guests including Four Tet, Actress, Lee Burridge, John Talabot, Craig Richards, Delano Smith, Benoit & Sergio, Noze, Midland, Matthew Dear, dOP, Magda and many more to come…



shark hunt

Will we see any new performances or experiences that have never been done before?

Well, let’s put it like this: weirdness is in the eyes of the beholder. I’m not trying to bring new experiences. I just want people to feel slightly uncomfortable and like it!

Do the cryptic images that we see posted to the Wisdom of the Glove page all have a deeper meaning that relates to the residency?

What im trying to do, almost on my own with a little bit of help, is try to create imagery, a visual dialogue leading up to the residency. When you get to the club, you won’t see Cirque de Soleil, and I can’t create a fantasy world. It’s still a party in a nightclub, but at least people will have these images in mind and can imagine how it can be or how it should and hopefully will be.

SLDGHMR – Reset EP

Property of Gotta Dance Dirty

Out now is the latest from Le Castle Vania’s label Always Never Records, an amazing and multi-faceted six track EP from Miami based producers SLDGHMR. I’m really impressed – there’s not a whole lot of young American producers that have finesse and versatility in delivering an EP that progresses from barreling techno to indie/nu-disco type stylings whilst maintaining a sound true to their artistry.


It’s clear with the EP that SLDGHMR have mastered the art of progression, from the layout of the EP itself to each high and low within the tracks. Beginning with the title track, you’re pushed straight into the darkness, a kind of post-apocalyptic journey into techno with deep and commanding vocals. “I Just Want You To Know” continues along the techno stream, with intelligently placed keys that drop into in-your-face kickdrums – the danceability most accurately shown in their music video- an ode to the old school techno dance videos of the very early 90s.

Things get simpler on “Welcome To The Technodome”, where my combined love for 108BPM techno and atypically placed rap lyrics come together to humorously dark effect. For all you – yes I’m going to make up a genre here – “autobahn techno” lovers, “BAOM” is the one, carrying easily the darkest and most tunneling vibe on the EP, accented by perfectly placed massive kicks I’ve only recently seen pulled off that well by Gesaffelstein. The mood changes entirely with “Shadows Dancing”, an electronica-influenced melodic track that starts to bring the EP to a close. The final track, aided by vocals from the lovely Louisahhh!!! is a great end to the EP as I feel it culminates a lot of what makes the previous five tracks so special together into its own uniqueness.

Reset is definitely a showcase for a multitude of different inspirations and a solid debut effort from SLDGHMR on Always Never. There’s a lot of appeal here and an unbeknownst amount of potential- it captivates in a way that makes you want to listen over again and ponder how deep they go in their DJ sets. The EP is available basically everywhere music is sold but you can stream it below as well.
