Press Info:
Niclas Erlandsson is striving for a more brutal and ruthless version of the typical Swedish techno sound. He delivers percussion-driven, aggressive and relentless techno that stupefies the listener to submit to the rhythm.

His natural habitat is placed next to Rebekah, Dasha Rush, Perc and Dax J. Foregoing melody for pummeling and perpetual tracks with a mixture of techno, acid, EBM and breakbeats.

Emerging on the scene in 2016 with ‘Trollskog’ EP, remixed by rraph, subsequently gaining him massive recognition from community peers such as Slam, Flug, Amotik, A.Mochi and many, many more. His high standards, dedication to the craft and eagerness to experiment with new techniques results in quality techno, as evidenced by his releases on Gynoid Audio, Elektrax Recordings and Counter Pulse. (among others)

At this point Niclas was still living in Sweden, tired of the stale scene, he and two friends started throwing underground parties reminiscent of the 90’s, in abandoned warehouses and winecellars. With 11 years of DJing experience he have played alongside the likes of Planet Rhythm founder Glenn Wilson and Mattias Fridell.

As a young and emerging producer, Niclas vision is simple; redefine expectations of what ‘Swedish techno’ is and become a reference point in the techno industry.

Press Info:
Julio César Machado, also known as Hioll, has become one of the main influences within the rising electronic music scene in Cuba. Respected and admired not only in his homeland of Cuba, but among the entire techno community of the world.

Established Abstraction in 2017, the first electronic music label ever in Cuba’s history and which is dedicated to showing the most outstanding talents from the island. But that has subsequently evolved to welcome new international artists and, as such, become a widely supported source of dance-floor cuts.

As a producer, Hioll’s tracks exist in a powerful aesthetic crossroads, which looks simultaneously from the most daring and strange hypnotic Techno to the most bizarre and Industrial. He has many successful releases in respected and well known labels like Flash Recordings, Drvms Ltd, TMM Records, Suara, Knowledge, Trau-ma or his own labels, Abstraction and Hioll. Being played and supported by big industry names such as Dax J, Paula Temple, I Hate Models, Keith Carnal or Shlømo, just to name a few.

This suggests a versatile artist with a strong personality, capable of generating rich and truly unique ideas and, eventually, translating them into a varied context of unprecedented sound experiences.

Apothicaire has made his way in techno scene step by step with strong venues as a DJ : After his ?rst gig in one of the most popular club in Paris, GLAZART, alongside Emmanuel and Mark Broom, he kept going, sharing the scene with big names in Techno scene (Bas Mooy, Ayarcana,..). After a collaboration, appreciated by the public, “Absolute Control”, with his partner in crime Chlär on the 6th release of the label Bipolar Disorder, he made his own handcrafted EP, mixing hypnotic melodies and fast, structured, and unstoppable rhythms, with talented remixers such as Edit Select or Unbalance. Since he built his pedestal with collaborators that became close friends, he is now preparing new projects and EPs, always looking for perfection through his tracks and DJ sets..

Press Info:
Nicola Belligoli aka MTD was born in Mantua in 1986, after several years of interest in electronic music, particularly in techno, and after experiencing the production world, he decides to open his own label together with its historic partner Tracy.

In the winter between 2010 and 2011 Sonntag Morgen. comes to life, initially only with digital releases and then also on wax. Now in its five year it counts more than 50 releases on digital and 10 on vinyl.

With the launch of the label MTD finds room to exhibit the best of his idea of Techno. Hypnotic and rough sounds influenced by dub and experimental moods, he never stop to research and experiment new sounds or new technic. This will eventually lead him to collaborate with many Italian and international labels.
Today in his discography we can find a large variety of works supported by numerous artists of the international music scene.

He recently also started his own new project “Methodical”, a new label platform vinyl only with no boundaries where every artist can express himself in the best way, with no particular constrictions, everything curated by MTD himself.

Press Info:
Isolated Lines is a Swiss musician exploring dense and rhythmically experimental techno.

Though Isolated Lines is still a relatively new project, the man behind the moniker has been involved in band projects, sound engineering jobs and Switzerland’s underground music scene in general for some years. Coming from a background of listening to and playing in rock, indie and noise groups, his tracks are as much informed by the energy and dynamics of live performance and sound science as they are by the endless possibilities of electronic production. So far, they have found a home on established Swiss label Creaked and been picked up by Tommy Four Seven for release on his 47 imprint.

Isolated Lines productions are warmly textural and full of subtleties, usually favouring trippy, hypnotic grooves over outright aggression. Whilst most of the detail is consciously designed, Isolated Lines makes music in a way which leaves space for randomness and organic elements; listen to the off kilter swing of ‘Raze’ or his remix for Gaspard De La Montagne, for example. Especially through a decent sound system, the layers evolve and interact with an exciting air of unpredictability.

As with his studio gear, the live setup is subject to constant change and development. Certain characteristics remain within the sound and the way it is presented though: ambitious arrangements, soaring, euphoric pads and hard hitting drums. His material is versatile enough for pitch­black basements and early morning festival sets alike.
