Press Info:
Growing up in Berlin immersed within underground subculture, Chontane started playing regularly at the early age of nineteen kicking things off with a residency at the Krach nights in Humboldthain and then playing some of the cities most revered clubs, including: Treasor, :// About Blank and OHM.

With his first record release in 2018 still receiving praise and support, Chontane has wasted no time in reaffirming his capabilities. With another successful collaborative release on Magic Power with WERK co-founder J.Manuel and a 4 track EP on the Special Projects sub-label of Radio Slave’s Rekids imprint. The young producer is constantly blurring the lines between techno, breaks and electro in the capital; breaking down some of the perceived barriers that were once there.

Now Chontane brings his colourful and energetic brand of blurred techno to Lobster Theremin’s White series with four hedonistic and mind-altering weapons. First up is ‘invisible Guest’ where driving and primal percussion meet a kaleidoscope of colour; a menacing track that’s perfectly balanced by soft edges and restoring pads. ‘Tarpene’ shows a different side of Chontane’s productions altogether, a UK inspired cut of techno-stamped breaks that’s both emotive and functional.

Then comes ‘Flux’ a sweat-inducing hypnotic roller that taps into our addictive qualities. Seductive chords mesh with galloping percussion in a trippy peak-time ride through the club’s dark corridors. The record comes to a close with ‘Art Of Survival’, the Berlin based producer embraces his techno roots, with an added sense of largeness and fun.

Press Info:
Hot on the heels of last year’s Dear Diary EP on Lobster Theremin, explosive performances on HÖR and an intimate interview with celebrated German publication Groove Magazine, frequent Berlin & Leipzig DJ Narciss comes through with four deep and groovy cuts of bass-driven techno.

‘Feather Boa Constrictor’ features one of Copenhagen’s most exciting emerging producers in recent years – Vixen – fresh off her own acclaimed release, Hard Magik For Soft Souls, on Lobster Theremin in December. Now the pair link up on the DJ Mag Breakthrough Label of the Year imprint that blends all the best elements of the Berlin and Copenhagen scenes in a high-speed trip through psy-trance, synth-wave and techno.

Narciss is on his ones as we enter the A2; ‘Lovechild (Outrun Mix)’ is aptly named with its reference to the 1986 arcade game Outrun, which featured some of the best video-game music to ever be created. Deep basslines, swirling synth-stabs and a soothing deepness and contemplativeness that can only come with driving a virtual car down a never-ending highway.

‘Tokyo’ makes use of polyrhythms and textures blended with what sounds like an old Sampha record. It’s a wonderful combination of dark, deep and forward-thinking sound, before Copenhagen producer Repro comes through with a typically EBM-focused remix combining elements of every track.

Take Me Higher
(Trudge Remix)

 

Press Info:
CAIVA exploded onto the scene last year with her folk, jazz and classical blend of hard-hitting techno on Take Me Higher on Lobster Theremin. Now the just-outside-of-Munich artist follows up one of the singles of the year with a complete body of work exploring high velocity sounds and experiences, and comes complete with two wicked remixes from Parisian producer Trudge and Julian Muller.

‘Vigour’ is an intergalactic, bass-driven jam utilising CAIVAs ghostly, folk-like vocals to haunting effect. A tale of two stories; the majority of the track is destined for the club, whilst the breakdown provides a pop-fuelled moment of contemplation. Emotional and powerful escapism. ‘Take Me Higher’ follows this depth of inspiration with a blend of euphoria and sadness with a high power cut of trance-techno that’s as devastating as it is beautiful.

Julian Muller is first up on remix duties as he takes on ‘Vigour’; a typically arcade-inspired trip through the modern trance-techno sound and the high-speed aesthetic of the nineties, before Trudge closes with an ethereal cut of typically textured rhythms within an anxious soundscape.

Press Info:
Copenhagen-via-Bulgaria producer Vixen readies her Lobster Theremin debut. Influenced by the high velocity techno sounds of the Danish capital, Vixen has been gathering momentum within her local circuit in addition to being a member of the renowned DIY collective Fast Forward, and here she delivers four cuts of big-room trance-techno.

‘Vibe Catcher’ is as ghostly as it is alien; a sonic trip through solar wastelands and otherworldly graveyards – unapologetic warehouse techno for the misfits of the underworld.

‘Maladaptive Daydreamer’ follows in a similar vein, the energy becoming a little more urgent as strobe lights flash overhead.

‘High Femme Fantasy’ is a homage to the progressive sound re-rise that has infiltrated so much of the contemporary dance music soundscape; a pulsating cut of atmospheric techno. Fun taken seriously.

Finalising the release is a remix from Danish contemporary royalty – Schacke burst onto the scene releasing on Courtesy’s Kul0r label – an imprint dedicated to the sounds of the Danish underground – and an incredible release on Russian label ????, and the producers rendition of ‘Maladaptive Daydreamer’ is sure to be a late contender for many people’s track of the year lists.

Press Info:
Cardiovascular tugging, euro-dance energy from Berlin based DJ HEARTSTRING on 1Ø PILLS MATE; for the lovers, the listeners and the trancers. Uniting the worlds of donk, euro-dance, trance and techno, the emerging producer is less concerned with opinions of the chin-stroking purists and more concerned with fun – crafting sensual and infectious pop-techno bangers that have fun firmly on the menu.

‘Lost In Emotion’ begins with a deep, heads down approach, lending influence from the pop melodies of artists such as Marlon Hoffstadt and his Midnight Themes label but with a headsy, underground appeal. ‘In Der Nacht’ follows in similar passion – inspiring images of that club scene from Blade – a vampirish, dark and distinctly Berlin twist on the typical trance aesthetic.

‘Bubby Paradise’ trades the darkness for bubblegum, arcade soundscapes that could score a pixelated, arcade racer before we are transatlantically beamed to the carnival of Brazil’s capital; ‘São Paulo Fever’ giving Latin-American rhythms the signature Heartstring blend.

Also available as a digital only track is ‘Coming Back 2 U’; a deep, hardcore trip through strobe lit dark rooms.
