Pistol Pete – ‘Garlic Express’ 12″ [Lampuka] + Raimo Promo Mix

The Raimo run Lampuka Records smashed it earlier this year, with the Basic Famous boss inaugurating the release schedule with Tomas Rubeck on LAMPUKA001. Good news then that the next 12″ is rolling out to stores this week, hand-stamped limited wax styles as always, with digital coming in a little time after.

The four-track EP comes courtesy of Pistol Pete, a Swedish producer who’s take on deep techno sounds we’re really digging. Three original tracks complimented with a banging Raimo remix of Aelska Inget, which in it’s original form is comparatively slow, but a definite highlight that’s going to be doing the heavy rounds. The joint is left field enough for fitting in to that whole slow-mo body music but still existing within the techno vein, it’s a nice balance that we don’t hear enough of.

You can check out clips from the whole record below,sewn together in to one Soundcloud joint, right above the press release which in turn is before you get to the recent Lampuka promo mix. Big ups Lampuka crew and all involved, another stunning release furthering the benchmark of quality for the label.

Promising new imprint Lampuka Records returns with their second release, an excellent deep techno four tracker from Swedish producer Pistol Pete, featuring a remix from label head Raimo.

The EP kicks off with the carefully sculpted “Garlic Express”, lush pads compliment this hazy mid-paced burner and take you on a journey of aquatic techno soundscapes. Paired on the a-side is “Can’t Won’t” further showcasing Pistol Pete’s talent in deep atmospherics, but this time intertwined with a faster pace and low end in abundance.

On the flip “Aelska Inget” shows the producer’s contrasting moods – a rougher, tougher and deceptively slow jam, that’s rich in textures and percussion with a low-slung groove. A definite departure from the feeling on the a-side, but one that’s in-keeping with the EPs modus operandi.

Rounding off the EP in his signature style, Raimo grabs Pistol Pete’s underlying deep elements and remodels ‘Aelska Inget’ into this peak time offering. With carefully timed breaks, a cheeky swing lurks behind the almost tribal drum patterns and dubby chords – that little extra something carries you away.

Tying in with the release Raimo served up an hour long promo mix. Done with the ideals of pulling together Lampuka releases (past and forthcoming) as well as other tracks from the associated artists (released and unreleased) he’s balanced it out with a handful of his own wax selection, well worth a look.
