Press Info:
Spanish Techno duo NX1 returns to BITE with 4 track EP Wound Mark Following their smashing EP on the label 3 years ago, NX1 return with Wound Mark. The Barcelona duo consisting of Surit and Samot formed at the end of 2011 and created a trademark sonic imprint that moves between heavy memories of classic techno with nods towards IDM to more mental spaces in contemporary sound design. NX1 propel themselves forward with futuristic elements, while also reflecting modern challenges. This EP designates a new range of intensities from the slow, melancholic roll of the opening track to seemingly heavier and progressive territory building up until the final minutes of Wound Mark.

Press Info:
Berghain resident Phase Fatale and Pablo Bozzi of Imperial Black Unit debut new collaboration Soft Crash with genrebending EP on BITE.

Soft Crash is the new music collaboration formed by Hayden Payne, aka Berghain resident Phase Fatale and Pablo Bozzi of Imperial Black Unit. Combining references such as William S. Burroughs and J.G. Ballard respectively, the project also functions to explore the fetishization of technology and the body and how the line between those is perpetually blurring. Increasingly, humans are reshaped and controlled by modern technology to an abysmal state; meanwhile, this technologically-made music can reinsert some emotion to try to bring back out a romantic sensibility and connection.

Bozzi and Payne, both based in Berlin, have been at the top of the industrial techno and ebm circuit through the last several years and have shared the stage on numerous occasions in their respective projects. As well, Bozzi released his debut solo EP on Phase Fatale’s label BITE earlier this year. But their mutual love for music outside of that sphere is what brought them together to form this alliance. Attempting to throw off the dark and authoritative stereotypes of the current music scene they helped foster, Payne and Bozzi look to their core influences of synthwave, disco, and early techno to carve a new path as italo body music pioneers.

The Spritzkrieg EP presents 3 tracks serving as just a bite of what will follow in their full length album for 2021. Each song serves as a view into the pool of subgeneres that they are exploring: from Frankfurt prototrance and techno to driving italo disco and new beat to drowned out electro on the verge of 90s Warp-alike ambient. Both trained musicians, Soft Crash brings melody back into the fold, creating intelligent, melancholic hooks combined with sensual, pulsating rhythm. It can convey the artists’ emotions in a picturesque way that just words themselves cannot. Music that would fit perfectly in the largest concrete techno halls as well as the sleaziest lab disco nights.

Press Info:
New Frames release “Outer Limits”, their first EP for BITE. The duo of Mathis Mootz aka The Panacea and fellow Berlin resident David Frisch combine their inspirations of thriving techno rave culture from its origins to today into transcending electronic music that is progressively contemporary. Previously releasing on labels such as Hands, R-Label, or Haven, New Frames always develop productions suited both for the dancefloor and repeated listening with detailed, multilayered sound design against masterfully powerful instrumentation and precise programming. In this release, they expand their stylistic palette beyond their established old school and industrial inflected techno sound to broken beat “The Wipe” alike immense trips and sub bass heavy driven sample rollers. Even the most diehard industrial techno lover will have difficulty realizing this is still industrial as well as going beyond those boundaries.
