Press Info:
It’s been a stacked year of strong releases from Moments In Time. Based in Manchester, it has shown its commitment to signing new exciting local talent, as well as those more established names, with artists including Hadone, Blicz,

For the last release of the year, Rudosa welcomes Irish talent Alt8 with a heart racing 3 track release, including a remix from the label boss himself.

Evan, aka Alt8 has had successful releases with a collaboration track on Kneaded Pains, Sara Landry remixing his track ‘Transcend’ on T-Minus Records and most recently a standout remix for Rebekah on her Elements Records imprint. His sets blend dark and gritty techno with industrial drums and early 90s rave influences.

Opening with the title track, ‘Hope In Darkness’ explosive industrial beats pound the senses from the off. Gargantuan reese bass and a catchy melodic hook mid way make for a powerful peak time cut.

Valhalla Calling’ powers forward with tough drums and scattergun percussions before dropping into a haunting melodic hook. Eerie sub-harmonics and a gnarly bass in the break add drama before the beat drops and carnage ensues. On remix duties, Rudosa does his best to dirty up the beats and adds an even more twisted hook for the ultimate e-moment.

Finally, ‘Concrete Walls’ sees Mr Marshall flex his funky techno muscles. Vocal asides syncopate against icy stabs and a rumbling industrial beat. Thin moody pads provide the perfect melodic juxtaposition as the dancefloor reaches fever pitch.
