    20 years with the best techno and house label out there!

    My all time favourite house and techno imprint Perlon turns 20 years in 2017. This is for me quite impressive. The label goes hand in hand with the Panorama Bar party Get Perlonized! which is one of the longest running parties at the Berlin house and techno scene. 
     I've had many different fav. minimal techno labels thoughtout the years. However, Perlon has for me always stayed on top of the the rest. Even the not so impressive releases still have some character to them. I remeber been hooked to the label at around 2005 or so. At that time I was inpressed by the stuff from Matt John, Dandy Jack, Ricardo Villalobos and others. However, I later realized that the most interesting stuff was released before the year of 2000. Here is my top 3 Perlon picks. Long live Perlon, long live vinyl.

    Ricardo Villalobos - Frank Mueller Melodram

    This track from 1999 blew me away conpletely. This is 9 minutes of intensively repetitive techhouse drums. Also it has quite a soft and introvert feel to it. I think this is Ricardo Villalobos' first release on Perlon. A lot has happened since then. Besides Ricardo there was just so many good artists releasing on Perlon at that time. Founders Zip and Markus Nikolai and Pantytec just to name a few.

    Mathew Jonson and Luciano - Alpine Rocket

    Let's fast forward to 2003. Both Mathew Jonson and Luciano were new kids on the block. Luciano, who was a former guitar player and Jonson who sort of came from a more jazz environment where has was a drummer. This release came to life on Jonson's first trip to Europe. Jonson and Lucioano complement each other so well. Luciano's percussions on top of Jonson's chords. This is an absolutely amazing record.

    Portable - Release

    Alan Abrahams, that’s the man behind Portable, born and raised in South Africa, where he started to produce music in the 90’s. This 2008 record is also leaning towards a more introvert and darker side side. Actually both sides are amazing deep house cuts. Super atmospheric and experimental.
