Press Info:
Moments In Time is a new Manchester based label run by Mark Bradbury aka Rudosa who kicked off the labels first release ‘Obsolescence’ in 2019. This March the label releases their second VA, consisting of 8 original tracks. Rudosa hammers down the doors for the VA’s opening track ‘Viable Entity’. Instantaneously setting the tone with an arsenal of clambering hi-hats and a kick drum thick enough to bring down a building.

DAHYRL quickly follows suit with ‘Reviere’, an equally vigorous hard-hitting ensemble of stomping kicks and dashing arpeggiators. The Belfast producer masterfully intertwines trance-like synth builds with clattering percussive elements for a powerhouse track fit for the wildest of nights. Balrog’s Ambient textures envelop the introductory section of ‘Flak Business’, leading listeners into a false sense of calm before opening out into a flurry of earth-shattering industrial drum patterns.

There’s no rest for the wicked as NTBR brings the bouncing bassline and vocal combo ‘Big Bang’ for the compilation’s midpoint moment. A peak time smasher sure to put a smile on the face of ravers in the early hours.

London’s Charlie Sparks cracks open the second half of the compilation with ‘Phobia’. A laser-infused Techno roller with a hypnotic vocal accompaniment inducing fear and adrenaline into the dance. Fellow Manchester industrial producer ANALECT calls upon the spirit of second-wave Detroit Techno releases with his track ‘What You Do To Me’. Relentless rhythmic elements and a twisting menagerie of bells circle ceaselessly through the mix, slowly progressing into a rave-ready anthem fit to shake any worthy sound system.

SLV provides the penultimate moments with ‘Buried Alive’, having seen releases on SOMA and Virgo, SLV is a well-seasoned purveyor of hard Techno releases and ‘Buried Alive’ certainly doesn’t fall short. Earthy and grisly in its nature, the track digs deep and ceaselessly drives through sonic ecstasy.

The VA concludes with Selective Response’s ‘Waking Up Alone’. Warped synth lines and shifting hi-hat patterns carry this track into a trance-like state of hypnosis. Infusions of acid cut into the mix at the track’s midpoint seamlessly bringing forth a flurry of sirens and breakneck drums.

Moments in Time is gearing up for an exciting and busy schedule of releases in 2021, featuring some of the world’s greatest up and coming Techno artists, this hand-picked compilation by the label’s founder Rudosa stands as a reminder of those rave-inspired memories we all long for. To be transported back to a particular feeling or ‘Moment in Time’.
