"Another brilliant Transhumanism record! I'm trying to pick up a fave but -obviously- its impossible! Good job! I will play it loud!" - Alienata
The Transhumanism collective was born on the dance-floor at Dave Clarke's first Whip It party at the Melkweg in Amsterdam. This is the fourth vinyl release on Bass Agenda Recordings that features the four Dutch Electro artists w1b0, RXmode, Slaves of Sinus, and TFHats.
The releases to date have had ongoing support from many key DJs who support the authentic Electro scene - Dave Clarke, UMEK, Helena Hauff, DJ Stingray, Maceo Plex, and Alienata to name but a few. Juan Atkins and Helena Hauff were still dropping w1b0's track from the first release this Summer (2019) at various festivals. It's no surprise that the first in the series has just been repressed, and now, the third in the series keeps the pressure up with 4 brand new tracks. As always, the brief here was simple - "be yourself and do your best to kill it".
All four artists have risen to the occasion - maintaining the fundamentals of their individual sounds, evolving a little in some parts, and bringing a compilation with something for every discerning DJ with an ear for cutting edge Electro.

First of all, this picture disc is just badass. Thank you for making these beauties, SOM!
Exterminate is my favorite here. Immediately reminiscent of "Master Organism" by Dopplereffekt, it hits hard and fast. Vocals are perfect as well.
Now, I'm not the biggest fan of the kind of lyrics on the B-side, especially when live, but Egyptian Lover is a legend and when well recorded in a studio like here, it does add a nice flair to the absolutely wicked track delivered by The Exaltics.

It's proto-electro! In 1997 - after a decade or more of searching I found (with a lot of assistance): "Sex With The Machines". I actually bought it the day it was released in my country. This? It is as good. 3l3ctro C0mmand0! resurface
