Press Info:
We are very happy to welcome the talented Swedish artist Axling as a new member of our family. Making his debut at the label with a package of exceptional productions, showing his characteristic raw and analog sound in each of them. Starting with ‘[1010]’ a cut loaded with movement where he makes very good use of the classic bleep by dividing it into two parts, a low and a much more treble one, thus creating a complex and contagious rhythmic pattern. On the second track we have ‘Screen’ with an imposing kick and an envelope sub bass as predominant elements that accompany the very well programmed synth arpeggio and 909 hi hats sequence. We continue with ’10 sec to panic’ a track of a more progressive character and influenced by that sound that was so popular in the raves of the late 90s, where the artist boldly leaves the comfort zone without losing his distinctive touch. ‘End Signal’ is another organic cut, that many would describe as Loop or Hypnotic Techno, which uses that old and effective formula where doing more with less is the main rule. Finally we find ‘Closing Phase’ a track of more gray nuances and background reverberated sounds, perfect to close any set and be the icing on the cake in this release.

Press Info:
New reference that shows four tracks meticulously curated for the club to give continuity to our Abstract Weapons series this year. From Serbia, Rèdacs arrives with “Mekanika” demonstrating its purely analogue sound where he uses a contagious line of modular synth and subtle textures. Åre:gone returns to the label with “Ya no es tan rojo” a track of very complex and syncopated rhythms as we are accustomed, and also, adding an attractive jam of saturated hats. In the third place, after his debut on the platform with an album of 12 original cuts, Numbers And Parameters delights us with “Social functions” a more dense and atmospheric track while dynamic and enveloping in which he excels a masterfully programmed sequence and an energetic section of hi hats. Finally we have Hioll back with “Bad behavior” showing a powerful kick and devastating percussions that adhere very well to the main lead making it a highly effective tool for peak hours.

Press Info:
With Numbers And Parameters we are giving way to a new series within the label that will be focused on showing a broader and more personal range of each artist’s work. ‘Memories from Area 51’ is an album that draws on the most atmospheric and repetitive sounds without losing focus on the dance floor. The tracks that comprise it are conceptually conceived as a series of events for who experience it and also embarking them on a unique and unprecedented journey. On the other hand does not pretend to be something sophisticated or much less but the simple and sincere product from the most recondite corners of the mind of its creator.

Press Info:
Continuing with our Abstract Weapons series, this time in its fourth installment, we give place to the third release of the year. Betting on textures and atmospheres, with ‘Clandestine’, Joaquin Ruiz starts this compilation and shows that a track can be mental and deep as well as rhythmic and dynamic, defending the sound that has caused so much passion in the scene during the last years. Secondly, the artist of the Polish scene, Szmer, gives us ‘Primal Origin’ a production in the purest repetitive style of the called, by many, Loop Techno and that maintains a firm and uncompromising proposal, allowing the arrangement to flow organically throughout its duration. After having remixed Sun Over Me in the tenth reference of the label, Vegim appears opening the B side of this release with ‘Confidence’, a more aggressive and muscular track where he maintains his distinctive stamp and character when it comes to creating. Finishing we have ‘Spektr’ by Axling, one of those cuts that wreaks havoc on the dance-floor with only 909 drums and a modular synth sequence, paying homage to the most classic and analog techno.

Press Info:
For the second installment of this year we open a new door, the ‘Formless’ series, which aims to cover a wide spectrum of contemporary techno. We start with ‘Fue A Lo Mejor, Mejor’ from Åre:gone; an experimental and intelligent track inclined towards the IDM movement. We continue with ‘Triss’, by JLTZ, with a hypnotic and enveloping sound at the same time as powerful and precise. William Arist presents ‘Binary Code’ for the third; a very useful tool with guaranteed results for any dance floor. The fourth track ‘Derrapagem’, belonging to the duo -2, stands out for its innovative and daring proposal with a strong tribal influence. As fifth in the list appears ‘L8’, by Temudo, combining a strong bass and powerful kick drum with a very catchy rhythm. ‘Point of No Return’, by Eònan, arrives later, being faithful to the Berliner sound and excelling by its incessant synth sequence. Ascorbite, with ‘All About The Hustle’, delivers the most industrial touch to this compilation, with an aggressive aproach and sounds that flirt with the 90s Trance. In number eight we have ‘Chords For Grace’ by Earthscape, mixing industrial elements with Detroit Techno chords, bringing out a very interesting rave sound for these times. It is followed by ‘2daBone’ from Vil, another track that looks much more into the classical aesthetics but reaches a peculiar and daring level. The Chronics closes this pack with ‘Cloud Nine’, a warmer and melodic cut, produced in a very organic way.
