Here comes the first release of the brand new label named Roze Balletten. The label's first offering is a various artist EP with tracks from Creme's Innershades, Belgium's Raw Sketches and Hotflush producer Locked Groove. Innershades opens the label's account with 'Volksverheffing', which is a classically inclined bit of house music with a prominent bassline that dances about with real elasticity. The kick drums are as weighty as Kerri Chandler's and the singing synths bring some Detroit futurism to the table in classy fashion. Raw Sketches, who also works as Ekleltiker and Tunguska, goes for a much slower, deeper, more purposeful vibe on his track 'Spilzucht'. It's one that wanders mysteriously on lumpy drums as sinewy synths perform acrobatics in its midst and will tie you in knots by the time its finished unfolding and evolving. Last but not least, Locked Groove comes hard with his firm techno workout. Machines go wild at the heart of it all and the ticking percussion is angry and insistent: it's somewhat freaked out and acid in the latter half, working both itself and listeners into a noir frenzy. This is affine record with which to kick off a new label and won that will surely put Roze Balletten on everyone's radar.
