Press Info:
The first release of the new Hypnotic techno label KR3 is a mini-compilation of four club bangers that symbolises the inception and evolution of a vortex – concept that is also embodied in the label’s logo.
Set to come out on February 10th, in both vinyl and digital formats, KR3 001 is a highly powerful release that seduces the listener into a labyrinth of twisted thoughts; a notion that has been widely embraced and evoked by all the artists who have contributed with their participation to the genesis of the label.

Press Info:
Second album for Blakk Harbor, the Greek Berlin based act Angelos Liaros-Copola delivering disrespectful broken technoise with this release.
Waves of noise and advanced sound design through pattern repetition and pulsating percussive blasts. Fairly terrorizing yet hypnotic with flashes of raw electricity and feedbacks riding on thick grainy waveform textures. Broken hardware transmissions and in-depth manipulated signal processing tamed to craft filmscaping monolithic sub-techno structures.
Staying devoted to his cinematic approach in music and darker narrative storytelling “A Modern Dialect” is an edgy backlash on our modern dehumanized declining society, a harsh uncompromising “dialect” against an ever-deteriorating globalization.

Press Info:
Ibtihal is an Arabic word that can be translated as a hard state to reach, a deep mental connection towards the within where a being can feel for the entity he is worshiping, an entity that can be benevolent or malevolent, obedient or imperious, from above or from below… A double-edged sabre.

“Al-Ibtihal” is an attempt to transcribe this feeling into the physical world through both visual and sonic mediums. The hour long album engulfs the two opposed sides of the same coin, depicted by the A-side and B-side of the tape.
The selected artwork captured by the talented Hind Moumou and gracefully edited by Hagen Ebejer portrays as a reminder that the Hand is a strong symbol of protection, most notably in the north-african and arab culture.

The A-side is a collection of electronic rituals where endless evolving drones meet ambient distorded soundscapes.

The B-side consists of martial pieces dedicated to War deities, with the introduction of tribal drums and beats.

out soon: Border One – Radon EP [Token Records]

 

Artist:
Border One

 

Title:
Radon EP

 

Label:
Token Records

 

Cat#:

Release Date:
16th October 2020

 

Format:
vinyl & digital

 

Tracklist:
A1.
Tracer

Split

Nuclide

B2.
Radon

 

Press Info:
Border One debuts on Token with the Radon EP.

The artist’s first outing on the label gathers up four more floor focused recordings, whilst maintaining the rich, low-sunk atmospherics characteristic of so much of his popular work. Dense and propulsive, the EP majors on leftfield sound design, with synth abstractions underpinned by warm, pulsating polyrhythms.

Opener Tracer sets the tone for the record with sleek, swung sequences sparring and panning off one another. Each component shifts and develops neatly over its run time lending the recording an exciting live element. Split, the EP’s most obvious main room missive, strikes from the first kick drum – classy and well worked, the recording marries tight snare rolls & a tripped out breakdown without losing any sense of style. Nuclide opens the B side, and continues in this same, effervescent vein – channelling pure peak time energy. Title track Radon closes the EP – a stunning exercise in purist techno that places its emphasis on a single repetition to great effect, buoying the work with occasional flourishes that serve to propel the track on towards its end. A top tier release from a certified talent within the contemporary Techno genre.
