Press Info:
Monnom Black presents Umwelt’s new studio album “Dead Eyes Society”, a stunning piece of work and the culmination of 30 years of artistic refinement. Umwelt is a truly rare underground electronic artist in the world of Techno and is without doubt one of the most important and prolific French electronic producers of a generation. A techno activist since the 90’s boasting over 50 releases to date. Throughout his career he has crafted a pure analog, unmistakable, signature sound, mixing dark, cinematic melancholy with the electro-techno grit he is so renowned for.

The sound of the album is influenced by late 90’s and early 00’s techno contrasted with an avant-garde approach to recording and sound design. Throughout the album Umwelt lays down beautiful grooves and his space techno melodies in uncompromising fashion, blended with classic synthwork and run through his famous analog outboard chains. With “Dead Eyes Society” Umwelt has crafted his most powerful techno album to date and solidified himself as an exceptional artist and titanic figure of modern electronic music.

Picture (used for the cover artwork) by acclaimed photographer Cam Linh, her work has been featured across multiple Parisian exhibitions and has worked closely with Umwelt over the past years.

Press Info:
Dax J returns to his label Monnom Black, bringing with him four cuts of pulsating techno!Dax J’s ‘Utopian Surrealism’ observes our transition into a new dystopian era. It reflects the strain in distinguishing truth and reality from the ever-growing radicalised networks of global manipulation, whilst extreme polarised realities, AI, deception, and mass poverty stay hidden away as we accelerate into the next stage of evolution.

‘Utopian Surrealism’ is Dax J’s 3rd studio album.

Written during lockdown, inspired by Yuval Noah Harari’s book Sapiens.

The London-born, British-Japanese DJ and producer has gone from pirate radio to magazine covers; from the backroom parties to headlining raves at every major techno club the world over, and all whilst staying true to the underground and his individual style of raw and uncompromising techno. His mix of pure passion and attention to high-end sound production has placed him at the forefront of a global scene, and established him as a singular presence within modern dance music.

Under the alias “Dangerous”, Dax’s first appearances on vinyl were on Aphrodite & Mickey Finn’s classic jungle label, “Urban Takeover”, but also on his own imprint, “Xplicit Sound”. By the age of 19 he had forced his foot into London’s storied drum’n’bass scene, initially playing the small rooms at major raves for legendary promoters such as United Dance, One Nation and Movement. He took to the airwaves too and held residencies on pirate radio stations Origin FM 95.2 and Time FM 104.6.

During a summer spent in Ibiza, Dax discovered techno and instantly developed a new passion for cutting-edge 4/4 beats that would give him a new direction. By the end of the summer he’d already begun to work on a way to merge the pulsating energies of European techno with the uncompromising, rough attitude of his musical upbringing. It was this experience that set in motion what has become the foundation of Dax’s unique style, a blend of rawness with the sleek, hedonistic night music for abandoned warehouses.

Today, Dax’s love of classic UK club culture remains undimmed, continually informing how he runs both his record label and his studio. His two previous albums ‘Shades of Black’ and ‘Offending Public Morality’ set out his vision for the highly emotive techno sounds that set him out from his peers – a sound he further develops on ‘Utopian Surrealism’.
