Press Info:
We are closing a cycle and we do it all over the top with a compilation of several artists. Among which are some usual ones and others of new incorporation. The idea behind this proposal is to tell a story using the different tracks of each producer that composes it. From the most experimental sound, through the classic and conservative Techno, to the current trends. Always having as main objective to risk and promote a constant evolution in our path.

Also with this release we intend to pay tribute to a brother and colleague who is no longer with us, Adrian Martínez aka Noix and half of X-Alox. He was a young producer who began to take his first steps on the Cuban Techno Scene and left with barely twenty-seven years old but leaving a valuable legacy behind. We dedicate this chapter to you, Adrian.

Press Info:
Hioll is back on the label and he does it with a blunt EP of six original cuts. “Pagan Tools” is a very functional release in which we can find tracks that are well suited to different scenarios and moments of the night. Perfect rapport and singular coherence denoted by restless percussions, dynamic hi hats, repetitive modular sequences, big kick drums and organic arrangements characterize this delivery. On the other hand the artist in question shows us once again his passion for getting out of the comfort zone and his versatility when producing Techno for the dance floor.

(Uun Remix)

05.
Former Vision II
(Vertical Spectrum Remix)

 

Press Info:
New reference introducing the Polish producer Szmer, who brings us three wild and dynamic cuts followed by two outstanding remixes. On the A side the artist builds this release defending the sounds of the old school, sucking from the Detroit Techno and abusing of the well-known TR-909 drum machine in a very pleasant way. Raw aesthetics and exceptional rhythmic work could perfectly describe the first three tracks of the package. On the B side we have the remixes of Uun and Vertical Spectrum, providing the dose of darkness and mysticism that makes this one a very attractive and interesting release.

Press Info:
We return with another split EP for this reference, presenting and welcoming the artists FU-5 and Vince from Argentina and Portugal respectively. Opening things on side A we have ‘Compress C3’ and ‘Compress C4’ two analog monsters where the Argentinian artist shows his wildest side. Building a fluid narrative through strong kick drums, syncopated synth sequences and uneasy hi hats he shapes these powerful tools. ‘Swig’ and ‘Fey’ are the cuts that make up the B side of the release. Showing personality and a distinctive sound, the young Portuguese artist subtly merges the Techno style of the early 2000s with the current tendencies, resulting in two very useful and effective tracks for any situation of the night.
