Supercycle first appeared on Oliver’s 2017 album Double Vision – which has received rave reviews from across the board thanks to the album’s complimentary two part structure. Oliver Lieb aka L.S.G. continues to be a hugely important figure to artists and music lovers, his career spans almost 3 decades and in that time he’s delivered hundreds of tracks under various guises. He is most known for his cutting edge techno and trance, but he also produces memorable downtempo, ambient and tech house. His works have featured on the legendary Superstition Records as well as other labels including Hooj Choons, Yoshitoshi, Platipus and Sven Vath’s Harthouse where his Spicelab moniker dominated. In 1996 his tracks were picked up for some of our own labels starting with an appearance on XTC Trax 3 with Fontana which led to other inclusions on compilations for Bonzai Trance Progressive, Tripomatic and Tranceportation. Over the last number of years he has moved into a much more audio engineering role with mastering being something he spends a lot of time doing among other things. A true legend in his field with lots more still to come no doubt.
The Maxi Version of Supercycle intros with a tight, punchy kick drum and slicing hi hat on the offset. Cool percussions tease before a noisy synth joins in creating a rich and dynamic sound. A deep probing bassline packs a huge punch as it dominates the low end. The track suddenly drops to a kick and pulsating synth sequence which takes us to the break where the magic happens. The break reveals a sublime, scathing melodic display that screams with the L.S.G. sound before those excellent kicks return with a pumping bassline in tow. Top notch stuff once again from Mr Lieb, this one will not disappoint.
