Press Info:
Nicolas Bougaïeff has released a selection of remixes ahead of the launch of his forthcoming album, The Upward Spiral – out on vinyl and digitally on 24 July 2020.

Japanese born, Berlin based Kosei Fukuda, British producer Sam KDC, Din-ST aka Frederic Stader and British techno artist Benjamin Damage individually take either the creeping mutation of ‘Nexus’ or the nosebleed kicks and synth bleeps of ‘Thalassophobia’ as their starting point for this four-track EP, out now.

The original versions of Nexus and Thalassophobia both appear on The Upward Spiral, due out on Mute later this month. On the new album Bougaïeff reframes familiar tropes for his own mind-expanding vision of body music. Punishing industrial techno charges the album at surface level with beautiful-meets-bleak energy. But peel back the layers of brash ferocity, and there’s a hell of a lot more going on than first meets the ear. The culmination of years of hard work, Bougaïeff grew the album from the seeds of a bespoke composition technique; a carefully thought-out studio experiment in how to bend a love of techno into innovative new shapes.

Across nine metallic misadventures, which Bougaïeff describes as “little open scores”, he blitzes drum patterns and sharp synthwork into a satisfyingly effective blend. Intricate rhythmic structures lurk beneath the “strawberry jam” of the surface aesthetics. This rhythmic illusion seeps into every crevice of a record that brings a slice of academia to the rave.

This new album continues his decades-long love of club music, a love that has compelled Bougaïeff to challenge conventional wisdom, delivering genre-busting Berghain sets that expertly blend French-Canadian hip-hop with Tchaikovsky, moody techno and ambient. Previous releases include the Cognitive Resonance EP that relaunched the NovaMute imprint in 2017.

Press Info:
Fiedel launches SUPER SOUND TOOL, a series that puts BIG SOUND before BIG NAMES. SUPER SOUND TOOL, the new FIEDEL II sub label, is dedicated to perfectly crafted, yet playful, techno tracks for those DJs who still mix vinyl in the club.

All tracks are dance floor approved.

This series targets die-hard vinyl fans and is devoted to the kind of wax that Fiedel wishes he’d find more often when digging in a record store himself.

All lathes are carefully executed in 45 rpm in order to guarantee both maximal loudness and optimal sound quality. The fact that the grooves are cut wider than they would be for a standard 33 rpm 4-tracker makes it possible to deliver the music at a higher volume.

This process improves the signal-to-noise ratio while practically eliminating background noise. Another advantage of producing records with the method used to cut MAXI SINGLES back in the days is that it provides an enhanced frequency range, as well as greater dynamics – a big advantage both for vinyl DJs and audiophiles.

Besides the technical aspects, releasing tracks as 45 rpm Maxis makes it possible to press longer numbers, as the complete surface of the record is used just for one track.

Similarly to the various tools in a toolbox having different purposes, the SUPER SOUND TOOL series features different styles of techno that cater for the raver’s needs on the dance floor.
