From the vaults of London-based imprint Rednetic comes the second instalment in the label’s One Point series, and like its predecessor, One Point One, released three years ago now, One Point Two brings together some of the best underground electronic artists of the moment.
Purveyors of fine classic electronic music since 2003, when it was founded by Mark Streatfield, who records as Zainetica, and Joseph Auer, London-based Rednetic have progressively gained some momentum thanks to a regular flux of excellent releases. In the last year alone, Rednetic have delivered EPs from Mint, Inigo Kennedy and Sunosis and an album from London DJ and producer Tommi Bass, covering in the process a vast musical spectrum, from melodic electronica to full-on Detroit-infused techno, electro jazz and groovy drum’n’bass.
One Point Two is a superbly accurate reflection of what the label has offered in the three years since One Point One. Distilling lush electronica from the likes of Mint (Queasy), Boc Scadet (She Spoke To The Sky), Zainetica (Awaken) or Inigo Kennedy (Faraway Towns), haunting ambient from Polestar (Retro Future), Infinite Scale (Cell Out), Vizier Of Damascus, (Murmurs) or Joseph Auer (Probes), razor-sharp electro groove escapades with Tommi Bass (Electro Glitch 2007), Utility Player (Initiation) and Cheju (Hubl) or dirty electro funk by Liberation Jumpsuit (One Night Stand), this compilation confirms Rednetic’s position as one of the most interesting labels around.
Each artist contributes one exclusive track, with the exception of Joseph Auer, whose Harajuku Rain, from his 2004 Kyoto Tokyo 2001 EP, has been given new attires thanks to a stunning remix from Finland’s Lackluster. Musicians featured on this compilation come with impressive pedigree.
"By equal points stylistically diverse and inspired, One Point Two represents a seriously impressive label showcase collection from Rednetic that marks the London-based imprint as one well worth keeping tabs on."
"A definite show of force by Rednetic and a welcome as it is refreshing collection of tracks that rely on electronics rather than acoustic instruments in what seems to be an unstoppable wave of acoustic releases the past year or so."
"It's a varied collection that ranges from classic melodic electronica right through to a more uptempo, electro based sound with some real oomph. Selected with care this CD represents some of the most excellent underground UK artists from this scene... you know what to do! Recommended."
"Rednetic have gained confidence with every release, and the label’s audience has been growing accordingly. This second compilation brings together the many flavours of Rednetic and provides an ideal entry point for one of the most consistent independent imprints around."
