Press Info:
What’s a lockdown good for? If any, it allows for time to be invested into making music. For Jehra, his Temasa Geç EP was the result: an outburst, a release of compressed emotions from the last two years that had the whole globe in captivation.

Meet Jehra, one of Istanbul’s techno pioneers co-running RE:VOLT Kollektiv’s techno night and community inviting some of techno’s most interesting names. For his EP, producer friends close to him were invited to help on a track or remix: Sekulahr, EXIX, Daktik, and Belin.

Starting with Emperyel Köpekler made with Daktik, is setting the tone for the EP just right. A big moving bass line is tickled by percussion, progressing into a more filter-open synth churning forward.

Of big kicks no absence. Temasa Geç is the track to get you in the zone with a dirty and contagious pumping acid trick. 3rd from the pack is Ates, turning warehouses inside out like a freight train dancing on its rails. Cahil hits the right string just as good but goes deeper in the atmosphere with an acid touch.
Sekulahr’s remix showcases more refined action of Ates but introduces a cleverly programmed breakbeat with a tight groove. EXIX’s take on Temasa Geç is pure brutal melancholy with apocalypse loop hole vibes. Finishing off with Jehra remixing his own track together with Belin in his Deconstructed Mix of Temasa Geç; a breakbeat teardown of the original tucking you in with a blanket of serenity after having heard all of previous hammers.

Afternoon Before Storm

05.
Upside Healing
(Arman John Remix)

 

Press Info:
Only new and very promising names on this exciting 5-tracker EP. Afternoon Before Storm was written and produced by SZG (Caio Pires), who is a rising talent from São Paulo, Brazil. Remixes nailed by Illiya Korniyenko and Arman John.

Starting with Upside Healing, get dragged away with ease in this melancholic techno anthem. The percussive backbone keeps you in check with reality, while the pad invites you to deep lows and pristine highs.

The vibe in Something Holdin On To Nothing breathes a careful exploration of new territory, albeit with confidence. Like the very first few months in a blooming relationship. A dreamy vibe with filtered steel and tangy synth elements cradle the track smoothly.

Next, hopeful techno with a muscular punch. Afternoon Before Storm gets the adrenaline flowing at a high pace. This track has a strong going-into-battle sentiment, which makes a great tool to lift the dance floor into the next gear.

Illiya Korniyenko brings his signature machine sound to a remix of Afternoon Before Storm. This machine is a non-tamed, non-oiled, runaway freight train marching at full speed.

If you like it faster, Upside Healing will come to life for you in Arman John‘s remix, not only as a faster track but with more brightness in the pads. The melancholic theme is there, but a layer of aspiration, desire and more speed unfolds a more punching and glowing concept.

BRÄLLE

 

Title:
Feathers For Bones EP

 

Label:
Märked

 

Cat#:
MRKD033

 

Release Date:
30th November 2021

 

Format:
download & streaming

 

Tracklist:
01.
Are You Real

02.

04.
Narcissus
(Hioll Remix)

05.
Feathers For Bones
(Lindsey Herbert Remix)

 

Press Info:
BRÄLLE is back on Märked with a diverse package ranging from mysterious and deep, to churning club pounders. Bringing in one of Cuban’s contemporary techno’s main influences, Hioll, together with Lindsey Herbert, who is deeply involved in the thriving San Francisco techno scene.

Opening with Are You Real, one of the tracks to add a lot of diversity with a rolling kick running through bleeps and mystical pads.

Feathers For Bones is a dance floor weapon in its purest form, long and deep kicks with a layer of drone hypnosis, locked into the rhythm with stimulating tribal drums on every 4th note.

To get the floor in its sixth gear you play Narcissus. Enjoy an electronic whirlpool loop with an everlasting hot groove of scrambled UFO sounds.

The only thing that’s refined is a 30 sec. small break in Hioll’s take on Narcissus. The rest is as bold as it gets, hard compression on the drums marching forward with a big thumping kick underneath.

Finishing off with Lindsey Herbert, who repurposes the droney elements of the original version of Feathers For Bones at a faster pace. High in energy, weaving together a hypnotic style track already getting played out by Amelie Lens.

Rough Concrete
(Charlie Sparks Remix)

06.
Aggressive Raver
(Amstra Acid Mix)

 

Press Info:
NHM’s debut EP on Märked is firm, strong two-step ‘n punch techno backed by emerging artists Charlie Sparks and Amstra.

Growling through concrete, marching forward. Seismic Seduction is tunnel-vision, and at the same time, the extraterrestrial keeps you entertained outside the scope of kicks and rolling bass.

Wobbly basses in Floor Sanding switch lanes with smooth and fast percussion. Even though the track has an accelerated pace and is very direct on the grit, the vibe stays sensual and hypnotic.

Rough Concrete writes as it sounds. Double kick salvos coming directly for your spine, medieval screeches pushed by eerie bass synths.

Aggressive Raver is the operator track of them all, gritty stabs and a contagious drive hitting you in your dance muscles. You don’t sit still, but instead you two-step and pump.

Rough Concrete gets a strip-down by Charlie Sparks, focusing on a filthy kick rhythm and the ghostly hypnotic voice.

Amstra tops the EP with the cherry, with an astonishing heavyweight remix that was picked up early by 999999999. With another big kick and infectious acidic synth swing, the track is bound to destroy any warehouse or hideout with its progressing and driving energy.

Artist:

 

Title:
Age Of Creation EP

 

Label:
Märked

 

Cat#:
MRKD031

 

Release Date:
11th August 2021

 

Format:
download & streaming

 

Tracklist:
01.
Strike Again

02.
Age Of Creation

03.
Dystopia

04.
Strike Again
(Falhaber Remix)

05.
Dystopia
(Brecc Remix)

 

Press Info:
Time repeats itself, constantly. The revival of the heydays of early hardstyle and trance-infused hard electronic is here: Age Of Creation. Usually, YÅ doesn’t hold back, and also now is not the time to; the overall BPM of the full EP is well above the label’s average and 5 tracks are equipped to examine speakers’ full ranges.

In Strike Again, Yanis (YÅ) is working the kick and reversed bass effect through rap lyrics and zesty synth lines. The Age Of Creation’s EP title track wears the same kick and bass and several classic hardcore samples fill in the gaps. Also here the synths breathe a little bit of that nostalgic Thunderdome spirit.

The screeches in Dystopia launch you knee-deep into the stratosphere, to get stuck in a nostalgic loop of arped synth-power and hard percussion.

The elements in Falhaber’s remix have more time to puff in a less fast-paced, but evenly effective dancefloor smasher. Watch how the break works into a drop with a dose of what could be good ‘ol Theracords spice.

Blow off some steam with Brecc, firing up the muscles with syncopated screech fillers and a driving as ever arpeggiated electrifying groove.
