Press Info:
Rene Wise has previously released on some of the finest Techno labels out there such as Rødhåd’s WSNWG, Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver and Dustin Zahn’s Enemy Records. Now he finally gets round to another… James Ruskin’s Blueprint.

Rene Wise’s approach to writing music and DJing fuses together as one concept; tapping into primal human instinct via rhythm and groove. Wise portrays a deep sense of knowledge and maturity in his sound, devising atmospheric soundscapes with a raw but modern touch, captivating the listener from beginning to end. His sets demonstrate this to full effect, consistently maintaining a powerful sonic trademark whilst possessing the innate ability to create hip-shaking poly-rhythms and multi-deck layers.

Before discovering the world of electronic music, Wise came from a background of drum and percussion which was guided by his Iranian father who was a professional drummer. This influence plays a huge part in shaping the foundation of techno that he crafts.

Wise’s “quality over quantity” mindset has seen him become a mainstay on influential labels such as Mote-Evolver, WSNWG and Beard Man which has led him to work with some of the most respected names in the industry. His pure but passionate approach to music has given him the honour of gracing institutions such as Berghain and fabric and earned him a residency at the esteemed underground Eerste Communie parties hailing from The Netherlands.

Press Info:
Recoil is the musical project of former Depeche Mode member, Alan Wilder, and Mute will release the project’s last three albums Liquid, Unsound Methods and subHuman. Originally a solo venture for Alan’s more experimental work outside of Depeche, Recoil became his primary music project after he announced his departure from the band in 1995.

The Golden Gate Jubilee Quartet, Rosa Torras, Diamanda Galás, Nicole Blackman, Samantha Coerbell, and others power Alan Wilder’s passionate yet unsettling Recoil album, Liquid. Released in 2000, Liquid possesses a hypnotic and deeply charged allure drawn from its intense tapestry of desire, fury and violence. An exceptional piece of work for self-reflection in the company of darker side yourself, the record is intended drill holes into your psyche in a genuinely unhinged way.

Press Info:
With inspirations spanning from Samurai Movies of the 1950’s across Hip-Hop from the 80’s, to white-labelled tool-techno records and Anime from the 90’s, Narciss has catapulted themself into the contemporary hard dance spotlight with a flurry of furious cuts on Lobster Theremin and 1ØPILLSMATE, and now the German producer readies four synth-wavey bops of pop-techno and hardcore on Eurodance Inc.

Staying true to the Eurodance aesthetic, and following one of the year’s most well received dance music records in DJ Heartstring’s ‘4 The People’, ‘House Of Pleasure’ displays Narciss’ love for splashes of colour amongst the usually-grey Berlin soundscape. Taking as much influence from the golden-era of trance electronics as it is the Tresor heyday, it’s gradual incline from techno to eurodance is completed on ‘Power To The People’; a cut of deep trance that touches the border of cheese whilst maintaining a headsy, underground appeal.

‘ADHDisco’ is a warped sequence of classic soul nostalgia and high speed futuristic brain-dance that plays out like an alien discovering Northern Soul for the first time, before the classic hardcore synth patterns and unrelenting kicks of ‘Lovechild (LOVE mix) lay the foundation for a soulfully transcendent cut of classic Chicago and hard-house blends.

Press Info:
Terence Fixmer has announced details of a new album, his debut for Mute, and shared the first single, ‘Corne de Brume’. The new album, Shifting Signals, is set for release on double vinyl, CD and digitally on 2 December 2022.

Over two decades, Terence Fixmer has mapped his singular sound across a sizable stack of singles, EPs and seven grit-smeared solo albums intended to make you sweat. For his first album on Mute, the space-inspired Shifting Signals, he deals out a fistful of club-minded, pitch-black ragers while expanding his sound palette to convey a wider spectrum of moods.

Lead single ‘Corne de Brume’ (meaning “foghorn”) is the album’s guiding star and hard-hitting statement piece; a six-minute tempest of sawtoothed synths designed to evoke a ship’s foghorn, setting a moody and uncompromising tone with ear-piercing synthwork that slices through the foggy noise. “I was imagining a boat sailing off somewhere into the distance”, says Fixmer.

Throughout Shifting Signals, the follow up to 2018’s album Through the Cortex, he fixes his gaze on a vivid sci-fi world where deep space stretches out infinitely. Shifting Signals was sparked by a formative childhood viewing of Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi horror classic Alien. “I was totally traumatised but at the same time fascinated by it,” he recalls. “I kept thinking about the images from the film while I was making this album”.

Shifting Signals swoops, dips and scales the heights of white-knuckle adventure, and throughout the album concepts of unknowable space extend to the vast and mysterious natural world in our more immediate orbit. On tracks such as ‘Corne de Brume’ and ‘Step to the Edge’ Fixmer captures more tangible elements – the sea, earth – but always with an eye on their wild and uncontrollable side.

On ‘Step to the edge’, Fixmer reverts to techno fervour noddding to his floor-shaking club repertoire. Similarly, ‘No Latitude for Errors’ plots the brawny coordinates of EBM via an onslaught of jabbing synths and furious beats. Along with hypnotic stomper ‘The Way I See You’, these tracks feel noticeably rooted in the trailblazing ‘techno body music’ he’s known by many for.

But it’s not all fire, brimstone and banging techno. ‘The Passage’ slowly builds tension through layers of droning, noise that surges powerfully, like a jet engine. “Everyone will obviously see something different, but for me it conjures a space centre in an alien movie at the point when you hear the transmission; it’s futuristic. You see a space shuttle floating somewhere into infinity,” offers Fixmer.

Meanwhile, the clear-eyed piano and B-movie synths on ‘Synthetic Mind’ bring a cinematic element to the album that ambient closing track ‘Desertic’ brings into focus. “I wanted give people a direct movie image in their head when they listen to it,” says Fixmer.

“On each album I aim for something different but I retain the core sound, which is always there and often dark and melancholic. Sometimes the balance tips slightly and on this album, I’m striving to be freer and open myself up more to melody.”

Press Info:
With recent releases on Sindex, Under Division, Crusade, Otomo Trax & Insane Industry, Analect is quickly making waves in the underground scene with his forward-thinking sound. His next release ‘Don’t Stop’ will be on the Manchester-native vinyl imprint label Moments In Time, featuring three striking original cuts, accompanied by a standout remix from German artist B2.

Swinging the door wide open with a furiously potent peak-time cut is title track ‘Don’t Stop’. Riding a solid base of hammering kicks and blistering hat grooves, the track’s rave-inspired synth lead and subtly acidic low-frequency elements bring a darkened atmosphere to the mix to match its ominous vocal hook.

German DJ/Producer B2 follows with his rendition of the title track, serving a generous portion of industrial elements, its high-octane energy and bottom-heavy beats deliver a hair-raising dancefloor experience.

‘Stop The Party’ comes next, keeping the tempo high and the rhythms explicitly weighty. More hammering drums and electrifying hat sequences pave the way for sawing synth licks and trance-like leads, whilst a hardcore-inspired vox laces the mix with a nostalgic ‘90s hardcore feel.

The release comes to a firm close on ‘Warp Speed’, completing a quad of driving Industrial Techno bombs. Much like its predecessors, its fusion of Hardcore, Rave and even PsyTrance elements showcase the extent of Analect’s unparalleled sonic signature and vision – marking an impressive full solo MIT debut from the rising Mancunian!
