Expose Yourself not only offers up ten different explorations of techno, but it also expands the Space is the Place
imprint’s reach from Baltimore and Brooklyn to other corners of our fair planet. None of the label’s producers
hail from Mars.....yet. But until their A&R department sneaks into NASA’s Orion program, this latest release
from Space is the Place offers a myriad of Earthling producers, each presenting their regional interpretation of
techno. These stylings hail from from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, with Pittsburgh being represented by
Torvvo, Chase Smith, and Karl Ojanpa and Philadelphia with Siyoung. Crossing the Atlantic, Paris, France is
represented by Kayloo; Geneva, Switzerland by She Spells Doom, and; Berlin, Germany with House of Black
Lanterns and Ghettozoid. And, of course, Space is the Place Records’ bi-city headquarters of Baltimore are
represented by Thunderbird Juicebox and Normaling, and Brooklyn by Astrolith and NYC house guru, Alex
Burkat’s bass alias, Rx.
Beginning with the suave, Parisian stylings of Kayloo’s “La Voie,” which translates as “the track,” Expose
Yourself eases the listener into the proper headspace for this techno conversation. In true label form, Expose
Yourself then hits you with some uniquely techno-infused Baltimore Club with Thunderbird Juicebox’s “Beep
Beep.” Because techno isn’t just simple 4/4 with some robot voices, people!
Other highlights of Expose Yourself include She Spells Doom’s pummeling, perc-laden, “Crash Dummy
Groove”, Torvvo’s bleak but bouncy, “Signia”, Siyoung’s foracious and aptly named, “Shark Week”, and the
ominous drone of House of Black Lanterns’ “We Get Lower.”
Having now traversed the Atlantic Ocean to tap into the sounds of their Euro brethren, Space is the Place
Records’ exploration of techno is now poised to go beyond this world and into the next. Prepare yourselves, lifeforms - the countdown has begun.
