Dieb Audio continues its mission to provide quality, futuristic electronic music with this undeniably cool and diverse package. Two artists that need little, to no introduction for those who follow cutting-edge house and techno- DJ Yellow and Perc.

While many will know DJ Yellow as the influential, original pioneer behind "Yellow Productions" (with longtime friend Bob Sinclair), and the acclaimed "Africanism" concept, DJ Yellow's sound and style has gradually evolved and moved towards a more techno-inspired, twisted and cerebral state of affairs. HIs recent output has been documented and enthusiastically received on labels such as SAW, Ovum, Slip 'n' Slide and many more. A producer that remains true to his goal to confound expectations, here on "Space Soon To Vanish" demonstrates his mastery of blending percussive, staccato rhythms with haunting, sustained tones that create a soundscape that builds, snakes, slides and freaks out in all the right places with it's dive-bombing horns, fizzy rides and offset grooves. Filled with urgency and expectation, this wonderfully layered tune is sure to find favour with any DJ that loves a dramatic peaktime techno record built on old-school foundations with a solid emphasis on groove.

"Under The Silence" again confirms Yellow is still an absolute master when he visits the deeper reaches of house. Sublime and again, brilliantly produced, this cut oozes the genuine warmth Yellow consistantly strives for in music like this. Straddling the fine line between successfully complementing the A-side, while also providing a standout production that remains faithful to the style of his "Mindz Kontrol Ultra" concept "Under the Silence" sees DJ Yellow effortlessly add further depth and substance to the package.

Perc has been on fire of late, releasing storming releases for esteemed labels such as Kompakt and Drumcode amongst many, many others. Here, he transforms Yellow's "Under The Silence" into 2 outstanding, mutilated drum excursions. This truly is futuristic percussive techno of the highest calibre. Perc's Yellow Fever Remix retains the house stabs of Yellow's original and proceeds to violate them creating the ultimate techno journey whilst his Green Dub forgoes these stabs and heads straight for the jugular with it's sliced 'n diced beats. An outstandingly inspired re-interpretation of the original that completes the package with style and class.
