Press Info:
From Another Mind continues to establish itself as an essential label with a fantastic fifth release entitled ‘Die Augen Des Teufels’ from label bosses SHDW & Obscure Shape.

Marco Bläsi and Luigi Urban are main room techno talents who make no bones about the size of their sound. Classic techno, rave, EBM and acid all colour their grooves. In 2016 Groove Magazine chose them as “Newcomer of the Year”, while they have also released their ‘Himmel Und Erde EP’ on the mighty Rekids, as well as remixing the boss’s anthemic ‘Grindhouse’ in recent months.

Two years later, the duo now follow up ‘Die Weiße Rose’ – their last original release on From Another Mind – with four tracks that reflect the pair’s trademark versatility as producers and the sound they play as DJs.

Things open in monstrous fashion with the brilliant ‘Die Augen Des Teufels.’ Built on tightly programmed and unrelenting drums, it has a hypnotic synth line riding about the scales that locks in your mind while your feet march to the beat. Frazzled synths and icy hi hats add to the pressure and ensure this one makes a devastating effect. ‘Wächter Der Nacht’ is equally forceful, with hammering kick drums and minimal driving percussion joined by a brain frying acid lead synth line that will blow up any DJ set.

The flip maintains the release’s rave-spirit whilst taking things into a more melodic direction. Keeping up the high class pressure is ‘Die Prophezeiung’, which has hulking kicks leaning into a stiff wind as hugely texted synths rumble up top to bring real rawness and impact. This one stays relatively stripped back and builds atmosphere throughout before closer ‘Verlorene Seelen’ picks things up again with quick and slick drums, nimble chords and an irresistible sense of techno force that cannot fail to carry you away.
