Anatolian Weapons, the newest project of Athens, Greece-based artist Aggelos Baltas, debuts on Beats In Space Records with To The Mother Of Gods. Best known for a handful of celebrated EBM 12”s as Dream Weapons and a particularly heady brand of krautrock as Fantastikoi Hxoi, Baltas conceived of his Anatolian Weapons project as a way to bring together these two concepts within a distinctly Greek lineage.
On To The Mother Of Gods, Baltas reinterprets eight compositions from local musician Seirios Savvaidis, dissolving traditional recordings and folk lyricism into a Golden Pudel-approved percussive storm, where polyrhythms envelop soaring chants and basslines repeat and swirl. Baltas steers the listener through Athenian past and present, seeking a future sound as wind-kissed and mystical as his country’s oldest yet lifted by the swell of dancefloor dynamics.

Johannes Klingebiel’sPositional Play is a masquerade of shape and texture, a carbonated collection of capers to stray and sway with.
The Cologne-based producer, DJ, and Ancient Future Now label-boss dispatches four tracks of angular, emotive acid house destined to be intensified by the reception of perspiring dancers and exultant listeners around the globe.
“Positional Play” combines the gentle whiplash of splashing snares with a delirious, flourishing arpeggiated melody, while “Nah” draws the ecstatic inward to its essentials, opening with the sparse chime of bells, faraway metallic percussion, and plaintive piano pluck before accelerating into a chord-busting frenzy.
The latest 12” in a new chapter of Beats In Space Records, Johannes Klingebiel’s Positional Playis available for pre-order now at the shop.P

The Working Elite are Berlin-based spark plugs Thomas “Saap” Sabrowsky, of Extra Producktion, Terre des Pommes, ex-marine soldier, seasoned cook and barkeeper; and Daniel “D´LonelyAl” Nentwig, who moonlights as The Whitest Boy Alive, co-directs Extra Produktionen, plays keyboard and electric bass for various outfits, and engineers at Berlin’s Butterama Recording Center. Suffice it to say, the pair have named their collaborative project suitably. The Working Elite create recreational music for dancers to shimmer through the days and nights of balmy season.
