The Groove cassette series, from the outlines label, consists of two over nine-minute tracks. D.J.Fulltono, Osaka based artist, is responsible for the first release. Its productions have always been radically austere in their form. As Theater 1, in cooperation with another Japanese producer, CRZKNY, they created a genre hybrid, which embodies their fascination with techno music and footwork.
In Groove 1, D.J.Fulltono is developing reduced musical threads (so typical of him) opening, at the same time, a three-part cycle devoted to creators of footwork minimalism.
Beauty and power combined. Nostalgic and forward-looking all at the same time. DJ Rashad's legacy through Machinedrum's imagination. All tracks are excellent; "Tha Flow" is also a stellar piece, closely after "The $$$." Balazs Bognar
