The Advent & Zein Ferreira
Modulator aka Freddie Fresh
2021 sees EPM hit a new milestone as the digital distribution, rights management, PR company and record label celebrates 20 years of electronic music. In April, we announced the first part of our EPM20 celebrations – a series of three multi-artist EPs released across the summer, each focussing on a different genre.
The first of these focussed on techno with new and exclusive tracks by Robert Hood, Ben Sims, James Ruskin and Mark Broom for release at the end of May. We’re now ready to drop ‘EPM20 – EP 2’ which turns the spotlight on electro. For this special EP, we’ve gathered brand new tracks by The Advent & Zein Ferreira, Carl Finlow, Detroit’s Filthiest and Modulator a.k.a. Freddie Fresh.
As all good electro-heads will know, The Advent (Cisco Ferreira) is as renowned for electro as he is for techno. On ‘Strangeform’ he works alongside his son and rising talent, Zein to turn in pure electro-funk that’s blistering to the last beat. Another absolute master of the scene is Carl Finlow who brings deep bass notes, carefully crafted melody and his meticulous production skills to ‘Optogenetic’. Detroit’s Filthiest has been wowing listeners with his work for labels like Casa Voyager, Bass Agenda, Philthtrax and his own MCEC. His track ‘Werewolf’ is the electro monster the title suggests – dark and tough Detroit-electro book-ended with a playful vocal. The EP closes with the legendary, Freddie Fresh who after three decades is a genuine virtuoso. Under his Modulator guise he layers beautiful retro synth stylings and sci-fi atmospherics on ‘ProMars’.
The third EP featuring four house tracks will follow in July, with the ‘EPM20’ compilation after the summer.
