Rudosa & Balrog
Names Not Down
Walls Of Jericho
She’s Running Through My Head
Sleepless Nights With You
Talented UK-based artist, Rudosa, champions a fusion of hard hypnotic Techno with euphoric overtones that transports you back to a simpler time where nostalgia and emotion take over. Spanning several years of successful releases on high profile imprints he now mainly focuses on his own imprint, Moments in Time. This May we see the label release its 3rd VA, quite the achievement in only its 2nd year running. The label has always prided itself in showcasing many unknown artists, those who have turned the head of Rudosa with some talented production skills.
Featured on a previous VA, Yorkshireman Balrog returns with his heavier, darker techno, with a debut collab alongside Rudosa for ‘Names Not Down’, an energetic drum workout with a cheeky nod to 90’s clubland.
VXPX are an anonymous duo that express themselves through hard and fast sounds with an edge of ‘90s energy wrapped in industrial soul. Their track ‘Without ID’ is dystopian and hypnotic, with soaring menacing synth work.
Skoden is a UK-based DJ/producer who broke into the industry with his own label, YAWA, back in 2020. Navigating the difficult post-covid waters with much success, he’s now signed to Omen, Flesh and Hammers and others. He makes his debut with ‘Walls Of Jericho’ and its scattergun hats and schranz-y drums. KEYO’s ‘Tactical Progression’ adds a touch of restraint and class to the release, before we head over to Estonian producer Merimell’s ‘Breatherian’ which drops the tempo but not the energy, the tracks powerful industrial drums and funk drive this track.
Frazi.er is a name making some waves the last year, after his sell out show at Glasgow’s HYDRO, and sets at Terminal V, Into The Woods and Platform 18, his raw, unapologetic sound makes a mark with ‘She’s Running Through My Head’. It’s complex polyrhythms and hypnotic joie de vivre.
Alt8 is a label favourite, with a release coming later this year. He takes inspiration from early 2000’s hard techno, and wraps that into his latest blinder with ‘Sleepless Nights With You’. Effortlessly sitting on the hard dance crossover point, it’s got bags of personality and is the kind of track you wait for at the end of the night. Closing out the VA is a new name Non Reversible with ‘Endless Expanse’. This sees the producer spread his creative wings, with a powerful techno track to make his debut. Already signed to Soma, Arts and Animal Farm, this is a name you may see a lot more of in 2022. His deep, driving moods fluctuate between hypnotic rhythms and dark mind-blowing emotions.
