New on Davide Squillace’s label This And That Lab is the second in the series of their mixed artist release “Spring Summer Fall Winter”, and this is part “B” of the latest edition that features original tracks from Douglas Greed, Mathias Kaden, Alessio Mereu, Alfa Romero, Frank Storm and Nici.
Planning to release one for each season of the year, every edition is split into two volumes titled “SSFW #2A” and “SSFW #2B” with a focus on textures both audible and visual, and each release will be a combination of fresh talents with veteran artists.
Kick-starting part B is a collaborative track between German heavyweights Douglas Greed and Mathias Kaden. Douglas Greed has previously released on Exploited, KATERMUKKE, Kindisch, BPitch Control and Hive Audio, while Watergate resident Mathias Kaden has featured on imprints including Ovum, Hot Creations, Pets Recordings and Cocoon.
Alessio Mereu provides the second cut following his music that’s featured on other imprints such as Parquet, Harthouse, Amam and Poker Flat Recordings. Based in Italy, he has been a stalwart of the country’s electronic music scene and makes a welcome debut on This And That Lab.
Track three is from the Alfa Romero duo who along with releases on their own Alfa Romero Recordings, have also contributed to Dubfire’s SCI+TEC, and released classic EP’s on imprints such as Dirt Crew Recordings plus the now defunct Freak N Chic.
Finishing SSFW #2B is a track from Frank Storm and Nici, whose previous collaborations where released on Get Physical and Serialism Records. Frank Storm has also featured as a solo artist on labels including Hot Creations, Frequenza and Decay Records.
The booming tom drums and melodic synths of Douglas Greed and Mathias Kaden’s “He-Man” gets the package underway, which is followed by the minimal groove and spooky atmosphere of Alessio Mereu’s “Yokino”. Alfa Romero lift the mood with the euphoric synths of their cut “Flawless”, before Frank Storm and Nici raise the roof with the trippy vibe of their uplifting track “The Struggle Against Ourselves”.
