Press Info:
Fast Lane is a project that looks to deliver a diverse output in the return to booming club sound systems. Oliver Deutschmann is no stranger to injecting compounding techno that builds with emphatic passion before reaching a crescendo and cascading effusively.

The Berlin-based artist is releasing under the Belgian imprint Arkham Audio, which Cri Du Coeur heads. The label embarks on delivering forward-thinking and unshackled techno sounds. This project is a coming together of both philosophies to offer four tracks of eclectic floor pleasers.

The title track ‘Fast Lane’ features acid-tinged basslines that create velocity, while off-synths, crushing snares, and emphatic bass drums culminate in a pulsating finish.

Up second is ‚New Age‘, which offers a more pensive solemn affair. The excogitation pads insinuate an elusive feeling that gains direction as the kick, quick claps and shivering snare add pace and movement.

The penultimate track begins with rumbling jungle-like drums juxtaposed against a bleeping machine infused synth. The bleeps and bloops develop until it sounds like a conversation with a droid. Eventually ensnared by tingling hats, it continues to rise with plenty of body.

Last cut is a peak time driver with punchy kicks, a polyrhythmic whaling synth and snappy stabs. It has a mid-way build that keeps energy engaged and brings in an icy snare to cool off the heat—strap on your dancing boots.

Fast Lane EP will be available for digital release October 15th, 2021, on Arkham Audio. Be sure to check out the sound and cop the release.

Press Info:
Arkham Friends’ is a 2 part compilation with an uncompromising lineup of talent from the Arkham Audio family that have been making waves since the labels unveiling just over a year ago.

Part 1 is constructed of 10 quality tracks that speak many different tongues of techno. From Roman Poncet’s rhythmic, pulsing, hard energy approach, through to a percussively driven, bassline rich and highly addictive upbeat style from Insolate. Crashguard & Denise Rabe deliver riveting hard, dark and heavy approachs to the mix, while the likes of CYRK & DJ T-1000 fuse together eclectic elements to make tracks offering a unique left of centre approach that is full of surprises. Luis Flores lets everything breathe with his slow burn offering while J. Blofeld cleverly paints a world full of layered soundscapes. The multifaceted part 1 side is completed with Dustin Zahn & K-Ten producing lush synth fueled soundscapes which perfectly mix into this dynamic first part.

The second part of the compilation turns up the intensity to the maximum with 9 slamming club ready tracks. The man behind the label is Jerome D., aka Cri Du Coeur and he drops a delicious acid heavy track. His approach is supported by Marhu & Florian Meindl who also construct a world of acid-fueled mayhem. Drumcell continues to bring cleverly constructed chaos with a suspenseful array of hard sporadic energy.

An unrelenting flood of hard body moving frequencies is added by Zadig & Joe Farr before thick heavy basslines from Germany‘s Oliver Deutschmann fill out the spectrum. Kaiser and Madben’s gripping tracks are full of suspense and depth and round out this pounding second part of the compilation with a bang.

From top to toe this is a synergy of vigorous tracks that formulate to make an in-vigorating compilation from the Belgium based Arkham Audio which is releasing on September 3rd.

(Luis Flores Remix)

 

Press Info:
Belgian imprint Arkham Audio continues to build momentum twelve months after its launch, drawing on some of the scene’s biggest names and defying the odds to become a heavy hitter in the industrial techno sphere. On Arkham Audio 07, label owner Cri Du Coeur delivers a rolling, broken number with Jeffrey. As sparse as it is effective, the track is driven by saturated kickdrums and white noise percussion, with a vocal sample which placed exquisitely between the kicks, creating a rhythm greater than the sum of their parts. Jeffrey (Techno 909 Edit) straightens out the original with a dose of the 909s for a cleaner but still highly functional dancefloor workout.

A trio of remixes come from heavyweights Drumcell, Insolate and Luis Flores. L.A based Drumcell takes an atmospheric route, the reverbs bigger and brighter than the original, with the vocal twisted and pitched down beyond recognition. Croatian Insolate makes things altogether more playful, introducing a bubbling bass line and shuffling hats to the mix, and adding a 16th note arpeggio to place a completely different slant on things with her remix. Berghain regular Luis Flores adds an extended breakdown and some impressive sound design to create a palpable level of tension before reintroducing the pounding kick drums to his twisted rework.

Press Info:
After a busy 2020 Cri du Coeur is back with more music to ring in the new year! Slave In & Slave Out is an exciting five track EP that will be released digitally, and features two original tracks with remixes from Lady Starlight, Joe Farr, and Adam X.

Two versions of the same song, “Slave In” features a rolling bassline, trippy syncopated percussion, and a dystopic vibe, while “Slave Out” includes many of the same elements, but is more subtle and has less of a dark atmosphere. All three remixes are takes on “Slave In”. Lady Starlight’s version is faster, with a bouncy synth line and horror film-esque soundscapes. Joe Farr’s cut is rough and raw, with prominent use of the vocal sample “systems activated”.

Rounding out the project is legendary NYC producer Adam X, delivering an intense vibe with rhythmic claps, clambering percussion and sci-fi sounds. Slave In & Slave Out will be released on February 26th on Cri du Coeur’s label Arkham Audio. The label had an exciting 2020, most recently releasing a compilation of remixes of the legendary track “Anasthasia” by T99. Slave In & Slave Out is sure to be another successful project in Arkham Audio’s catalog, so don’t sleep!
