Press Info:
A virtuozo of late-night dance-inducing techno frenzies in steamy clubs, Oliver Deutschmann is back with his second releasee on ‚made of Concrete‘, aptly entitled ‘School Of Hard Floors’.

Named after dancefloors in Berlin’s stalwart clubs, this release kicks off with ‘Globus’, a mesmerizing slice of whirlwind zippy techno with dark vocals and a contagious bassline. ‘Oben’ channels spacious, acid-tinged pads with hints of murky chants into a construction that’s great for creating and sustaining a surreal stretch of enigmatic tension. The last original track of the offering, ‘Gate’ tunnels through an obscure sound artery, accented with scintillating synth bleeps gradually radiating into a burgeoning, light-leak reminiscing breakdown.

Hosts Rebar choose ‘Oben’, arguably the darkest track on the release for the remix treatment, adding swelling, arpeggiated glitched out pads that give the track a larger-than-life, bigger-than-the-room feel that captivates instantly.

Press Info:
Rebar present a batch of a new slew of talents ranging from the Swiss duo FS Bart, to Konnektivmusik crew members Malena X Franssen and Berliner DJ Sylvie Maziarz.

Sylvie Maziarz was busy in the past years touring the continent, but has recently switched focus to production. Enter ‘She Is On Another Planet’, a straightforward, punchy techno slice with a strong yet inviting energy. After inviting Rebar to release on their own Konnektivmusik label, Malena X Franssen bring their ethos to ‘made of CONCRETE’ with a dark, relentless construction bordering on nervous entitled ‘Morus’. With an outspoken penchant for brutal, raw techno, FS Bart stay on point with ‘Float’, a stripped down atmospheric dubby track. Hosts Rebar take on ‘Float’, adding spaciousness and depth in a pensive and bubbling acid-hued rework.

Press Info:
To mark 5 years of “made of CONCRETE”, the label has put together a special compilation that sees nearly all the core artists get involved. The result is five remixes, where artists each selected a track from the label’s catalogue and applied their rework treatment on this memorable occasion.

From introspective dub pads and sophisticated ambient soundscapes, the tracks offer a mix of atmospheres that all have one thing in common: subtle groove. Although separate sonic explorations, the slices seem to all come together as an array of buildups and releases of energy. All in all, a journey from deep syncopations to relentless rhythms, making for an entirely transcendental experience.

Petrifaction
(Roberto Clementi Remix)

 

Press Info:
Longtime moC family member Toni Dextor returns to the label with three original tracks and enlists Italian producer and DJ Roberto Clementi for his pick on the remix.

Aptly defined as “the process by which organic matter exposed to minerals over a long period is turned to a stony substance”, the title track ‘Petrification’ stays true to its name. Relentless metallic synths, a punching bassline and inviting vocals turn the track into a solid anthem. Using similar ingredients, but with an entirely new recipe, ‘Demand’ is a mesmerizing piece whose acidic bass feels beamed from a distant universe, drenching the floor in an eerie light. In comparison with the intensity and changes of the previous tracks, ‘Bad Gateway’ takes on a steady and constant approach. Profound pads create a layer of mystery, while delivering relentless energy. Roberto Clementi envisions ‘Petrification’ with a newfound energy, amping up the impact with a punchy resolution.

(Rebar’s Hum Version)

 

Press Info:
After contributing with a remix in 2018, made of concrete invite Johannes Volk for a full-length artist release. A scene veteran, Volk is known for his releases on Jeff Mills’ Axis Records, Patrice Scott’s Sistrum or Steffi’s Dolly imprint or for his live appearances in staple clubs Berghain, Tresor, Panorama Bar, Golden Pudel, or Corsica Studios to name a few.

Opener ‘Soldered Minds’ introduces a dense, energy-filled dynamic that’s both impactful and intriguing. Label chiefs Rebar give the track a ‘Hum’ remix treatment, adding layers of sizzle and flow that transform it into an afterhours-ready alternative. Undulating basslines stand at ‘Magma In Slo- mo’s base, a track that offers a solid anchor and great tool for the dancefloor. The haunting, glitch-laden ‘Asphalt Flowers’ brings unpredictability with its jittery, uneasy atmosphere that, if played at the right time, is the perfect trigger for a descent into dance delirium.
