Press Info:
After the widespread success of his Otto Wagner Green EP two years ago, label head honcho Gerald VDH is back with another solo release sporting two club-ready original tracks and two equally intense remixes by musical companions Cleric and Elad Magdasi.

While the title track Martyr is a proper breakbeat roller reminiscent of Gerald VDH’s early output with a refined and mature touch, I Came Back For You starts with a simple melody that evolves into a furious arrangement of bass, percussion and vocals and can be expected to stir up every dance floor with its exceptional mentality.

Cleric’s remix is a complex re-interpretation of the title track, adding layers and percussion to form a fast-paced and straight forward techno trip. Elad Magdasi’s imagination of I Came Back For You on the other hand is playful and modern, with trance-like melodies and uplifting grooves on top of Gerald VDH’s vocal expression.

With cover art by queer London photographer Tyler Udal completing the package, Gerald VHD delivers an outstanding release that further shapes his unique vision of techno and implements the ideas of like-minded musicians to paint a dark, but certainly not depressing picture of techno in the modern age.
