In The Dark
Having reached double digits on its release roster, Amsterdam-based techno label FORMAT presents its 11th release. And it’s a three-piece ensemble by label honcho Juan Sanchez himself.
FR011 delivers three techno bombs that perfectly reflect the FORMAT sound. Things kick off with ‘Despite The…’, which combines deep grooves to staccato bass pulses designed for peak-time moments. Spanish DJ/producer Aiken delivers a nasty remix that is propelled by a fierce industrial groove and coated in dark atmospheres. Closing the release is the sinister ‘In The Dark’, which is as deep as it is trippy. FORMAT’s first 2017 release is another prime example of the label’s coveted sound.
The release comes with stunning artwork by visual artist DEFRAME. Based on the refraction of light, the artwork reflects the illusion of a tiny multiverse where each plane exists in a different time and space. Much like its audio counterpart, it allows the viewer to get lost, see things differently and go beyond.
Coming up soon on FORMAT is a compilation release featuring a wide selection of known FORMAT-faces as well as various new names. Keep your eyes open for this one!
