Bellhouse 2
(Rebar’s Version 6)

 

Press Info:
Adopted Berliner hailing originally from the US, Kyle Geiger is not just an experienced DJ and producer, having already released on staple techno imprints Soma, Perc Trax and Droid, but also a budding production teacher via his Twitch livestream started during the first lockdown of 2020. When he’s not sharing knowledge about DAWs and shedding light on diverse voices in the music scenes, he also runs his labels Cubero and Front Left.

Across three techno excursions, collectively dubbed ‘Bellhouse’ and numbered 1 to 3, Kyle uses recurrent themes and motifs to craft intricate techno rollers in different forms. ‘Bellhouse 1’ stands out as a peak time dancefloor track, complete with heavy-hitting percussion, a dramatic lead and scintillating hi hats. ‘Bellhouse 2’ on the other hand comes off as a more subtle, restrained groove, whose nervousness can keep the energy high, while the third track can be found more on the dubby side, with metallic synths and mechanical whirs atop a steadily evolving marching bass. Hosts Rebar take on ‘Bellhouse 2’ giving it their own spin – distilling its fidgety atmosphere into a more anchored, mind-bending slow burner.

Simulation And Imagination
(The Reason Y & Chris Hirose Remix)

 

Press Info:
FS Bart select tracks for their DJ sets from trippy Acid to brute Industrial. As producers FS Bart are welding raw, dystopic and minimalistic materials to dark athmospheric stompers. FS Bart the proud founders, members and innovators of 12 o’Clock.

After previously contributing a track for the Batch Plant mini compilation series, Swiss duo FS Bart channel their dystopian and raw sound appeal for their first full EP on moC.

‘Subjective Truth’ kicks off proceedings with a hollowed-out, serrated pad on top of a straightforward bassline, creating a buzz of electricity. ‘Self Deception’ follows in the same vein, but with an added addictive swing, sitting somewhere between an utilitarian track and a dancefloor heater. ‘Simulation And Imagination’ is an introspective dubby exploration dancing around spaced out pads and industrial loops. The Reason Y teams up with Chris Hirose for the remix, turning track into yet another club weapon, underlining the integrated focus of the release.

Western Super
(Toni Dextor Remix)

 

Press Info:
Bade Records owners and two-time remix contributors Morven return to made of CONCRETE with their first full EP, with label member Toni Dextor up for remix duties.

“Western Super” is a slice of dance-inducing undulating techno, with a subdued percussion and catchy glitches ebbing and flowing as its obscure vocal seems to sputter through a radio loudspeaker in the backdrop. Another heavy-hitter comes in the shape of “Shift”, which amps up the tension through its hard bassline and menacing snares. “Grindhouse” is yet another immersive, hazy dub techno piece which mesmerises from the get go.

Toni Dextor’s remix of “Western Super” takes a detour into dark techno with effervescent synths and a subdued version of the vocal, leaving more room for the high impact of the enveloping, throbbing bass.

Europa
(Alek S Remix)

 

Press Info:
Berlin based techno producer and performer Alexander Kowalski joins forces with Athenian George Apergis for a three-piece EP, with moC fixture Alek S on remix duties.

‘Europa’ is a smashing, hammering-everything-in-its-way kind of track, with a catchy bassline and ominous, spacious pads that keep the energy locked. ‘Phoenix’ is loaded with sonic details in the form of zig zagging synths, scintillating pads and sudden glitches that make for a relentless slice. On ‘Cilix’, the atmosphere decompresses into a stripped down, bare-bones construction. Alek S chooses to apply the remix treatment to ‘Europa’, turning it into a rhythmic exploration that oscillates between dub techno and glitch-heavy ambient.
