Press Info:
With recent releases on Sindex, Under Division, Crusade, Otomo Trax & Insane Industry, Analect is quickly making waves in the underground scene with his forward-thinking sound. His next release ‘Don’t Stop’ will be on the Manchester-native vinyl imprint label Moments In Time, featuring three striking original cuts, accompanied by a standout remix from German artist B2.

Swinging the door wide open with a furiously potent peak-time cut is title track ‘Don’t Stop’. Riding a solid base of hammering kicks and blistering hat grooves, the track’s rave-inspired synth lead and subtly acidic low-frequency elements bring a darkened atmosphere to the mix to match its ominous vocal hook.

German DJ/Producer B2 follows with his rendition of the title track, serving a generous portion of industrial elements, its high-octane energy and bottom-heavy beats deliver a hair-raising dancefloor experience.

‘Stop The Party’ comes next, keeping the tempo high and the rhythms explicitly weighty. More hammering drums and electrifying hat sequences pave the way for sawing synth licks and trance-like leads, whilst a hardcore-inspired vox laces the mix with a nostalgic ‘90s hardcore feel.

The release comes to a firm close on ‘Warp Speed’, completing a quad of driving Industrial Techno bombs. Much like its predecessors, its fusion of Hardcore, Rave and even PsyTrance elements showcase the extent of Analect’s unparalleled sonic signature and vision – marking an impressive full solo MIT debut from the rising Mancunian!

Press Info:
Manchester-based Rudosa has been at the helm of Moments in Time for 3 years now, hand-picking every release to curate a uniquely personal, pulsating industrial sound. With plaudits and fans alike, his future focused, ‘90s-influenced music is finding favour wherever there’s a dancefloor. For his newest EP, Rudosa brings the classic sounds of UK hardcore bang up to date. Opening with ‘Stronger Rhythm’ crunchy drums and clattering percussions form the bedrock groove onto which he adds rhythmic vocals, and a and wild synths. It’s a dark ride that’ll put a massive smile on Next up, ‘It Is What It Is’ continues the trend expanding on the chopped-up breaks and spiky lead lines. Blending the hard trance synth sounds synonymous with E- Werk and Ultraschall and the modern industrial warehouse growl is no mean feat, and this is about as perfect as it gets. ‘Inviolable Power’ pounds from the first bar. More traditional sounding than the previous two, it by no means lacks punch – the main hook is arms aloft central for sure. An anthem in the making and sure to be hammered by all the big names in the scene. Finally, rounding off this impressive tetrad, is ‘Rejected’. Overdriven gabba kicks, shuffling percussions and a tensive energy set this apart. Once the acid and eerie lead synths kick in it’s all over bar the shouting!

Press Info:
Talented UK-based artist, Rudosa, champions a fusion of hard hypnotic Techno with euphoric overtones that transports you back to a simpler time where nostalgia and emotion take over. Spanning several years of successful releases on high profile imprints he now mainly focuses on his own imprint, Moments in Time. This May we see the label release its 3rd VA, quite the achievement in only its 2nd year running. The label has always prided itself in showcasing many unknown artists, those who have turned the head of Rudosa with some talented production skills.

Featured on a previous VA, Yorkshireman Balrog returns with his heavier, darker techno, with a debut collab alongside Rudosa for ‘Names Not Down’, an energetic drum workout with a cheeky nod to 90’s clubland.

VXPX are an anonymous duo that express themselves through hard and fast sounds with an edge of ‘90s energy wrapped in industrial soul. Their track ‘Without ID’ is dystopian and hypnotic, with soaring menacing synth work.

Skoden is a UK-based DJ/producer who broke into the industry with his own label, YAWA, back in 2020. Navigating the difficult post-covid waters with much success, he’s now signed to Omen, Flesh and Hammers and others. He makes his debut with ‘Walls Of Jericho’ and its scattergun hats and schranz-y drums. KEYO’s ‘Tactical Progression’ adds a touch of restraint and class to the release, before we head over to Estonian producer Merimell’s ‘Breatherian’ which drops the tempo but not the energy, the tracks powerful industrial drums and funk drive this track.

Frazi.er is a name making some waves the last year, after his sell out show at Glasgow’s HYDRO, and sets at Terminal V, Into The Woods and Platform 18, his raw, unapologetic sound makes a mark with ‘She’s Running Through My Head’. It’s complex polyrhythms and hypnotic joie de vivre.

Alt8 is a label favourite, with a release coming later this year. He takes inspiration from early 2000’s hard techno, and wraps that into his latest blinder with ‘Sleepless Nights With You’. Effortlessly sitting on the hard dance crossover point, it’s got bags of personality and is the kind of track you wait for at the end of the night. Closing out the VA is a new name Non Reversible with ‘Endless Expanse’. This sees the producer spread his creative wings, with a powerful techno track to make his debut. Already signed to Soma, Arts and Animal Farm, this is a name you may see a lot more of in 2022. His deep, driving moods fluctuate between hypnotic rhythms and dark mind-blowing emotions.

Press Info:
2021 was a successful year of strong releases from Moments In Time. Based in Manchester, it has shown its commitment to signing new exciting local talent, as well as those more established names, with artists including Hadone and Blicz, who is now making his return with a powerful first release of 2022 with ‘Piracy Never Ending’.

The Parisian star broke onto the scene back in 2015 with a series of releases on MM.Rec which quickly positioned him among the global elite. Now a firm favourite with the main tastemakers, his track ‘Eleven Roses’ (with Geerson) features on Amelie Lens’ 2019 Fabric compilation mix.

The ‘90s-inspired EP opens with ‘Dark Flag’; galloping hats and rubbery off-beat bass build towards the main break where a dystopian vocal and ravey synths cause all kinds of mayhem. ‘Night Talk’ is relentless. Industrial beats lay the foundations before trance-like synthlines hypnotise. ‘Groovy Cycle Baby’ is an acid techno masterclass full of busy percussion and spiky melodics that satisfies the peak-time headliner in all of us. Rounding out the EP, ‘First Contact’ powers from the off. Vocal ad libs punctuate the beats on this Liberator style acid monster.

Press Info:
It’s been a stacked year of strong releases from Moments In Time. Based in Manchester, it has shown its commitment to signing new exciting local talent, as well as those more established names, with artists including Hadone, Blicz,

For the last release of the year, Rudosa welcomes Irish talent Alt8 with a heart racing 3 track release, including a remix from the label boss himself.

Evan, aka Alt8 has had successful releases with a collaboration track on Kneaded Pains, Sara Landry remixing his track ‘Transcend’ on T-Minus Records and most recently a standout remix for Rebekah on her Elements Records imprint. His sets blend dark and gritty techno with industrial drums and early 90s rave influences.

Opening with the title track, ‘Hope In Darkness’ explosive industrial beats pound the senses from the off. Gargantuan reese bass and a catchy melodic hook mid way make for a powerful peak time cut.

Valhalla Calling’ powers forward with tough drums and scattergun percussions before dropping into a haunting melodic hook. Eerie sub-harmonics and a gnarly bass in the break add drama before the beat drops and carnage ensues. On remix duties, Rudosa does his best to dirty up the beats and adds an even more twisted hook for the ultimate e-moment.

Finally, ‘Concrete Walls’ sees Mr Marshall flex his funky techno muscles. Vocal asides syncopate against icy stabs and a rumbling industrial beat. Thin moody pads provide the perfect melodic juxtaposition as the dancefloor reaches fever pitch.
