Joel Alter presents SweatboxComment
This is stripped music, to the basic elements of what makes a track groove in the first place - and not without movement, development and sensibility. This is Sweatbox by Joel Alter.
The Swedish Berlin based Joel Alter‘s been busy the last few years making deep well produced dub inspired techno and house for labels Kontra-Musik and D‘Julz BassCulture.
The Jonsson/Alter vinyl album “Mod” has not been missed by any scene people, has received wide critical acclaim and even won the Swedish “Manifest” award for best dance music last year with the motivation: “they have with simple ease, non-nostalgic playfulness and a sly sense of melody effortlessly proven that it is possible to make techno as hard as concrete, yet still with an enticingly soft exterior”.
That says it all about that album, and during these last extremely hot weeks in Berlin we are proud to having been able to handpick 3 tracks out of Joel‘s own and freshly made material, which stands out entirely from his housier BassCulture releases. This is stripped music, to the basic elements of what makes a track groove in the first place - And not without movement, development and sensibility.
