Press Info:
Nicolas Bougaïeff returns to NovaMute with two EPs inspired by Greg Egan’s sci-fi novel ‘Permutation City’. ‘Permutation Djinn’, released August 3rd 2018 with ‘Permutation City’ released later this year.

Egan’s novel explores a far future scenario where mankind uploads their consciousness onto computers. Bougaïeff’s interpretation on ‘Permutation Djinn’ attempts to translate the stages of the novel into music while respecting the constraints of making club friendly tracks.

The titles of the tracks allude to various mental states the character goes through, from waking up in the simulated room, realising the shutdown functions have been disabled, speaking with his flesh-and-blood original and finally assessing the inevitability of his situation.

The opener ‘Woke Up As A Copy’ is an expansive track with Blade Runneresque metallic reverberations. ‘Panic Time Tryout’ is a peak time cut, fostering the futurist atmosphere with an unsettling melody.‘Little Djinn’ is the most frenetic of the tracks whilst ‘No Escape’ takes it back to peak time with resounding drums and drills.

Press Info:
Charlotte de Witte continues to establish herself as a driving force on the contemporary techno scene with The Healer, her second EP on seminal British imprint NovaMute.

The four tracker comes after the Belgian has fully broken through with a dark, dense and driving sound that is proudly unrelenting. Her meteoric rise has come off the back of a series of huge productions, plus standout sets at key festivals and clubs all around the world.

Charlotte’s fresh and innovative sound is immediately laid bare on opener ‘The Healer’, with eight minutes of spine-tingling, hypnotic techno. The sleek drums and icy hi-hats soon cast their spell, as well-crafted synths unfold up top to bring real emotion. ‘Silence’ is another slice of tunnel vision techno with perfectly designed drums rolling on and synths peeling off the groove. It’s trance inducing and otherworldly, with eerie voices adding to the all-consuming atmosphere.

Then comes ‘Kuda’, a track built on monstrous kicks that hit hard and drive forward with real force. Filtered vocals bring character, and sharp edged percussion grows ever louder to take the track, and the club, to the next level. Last of all, ‘Song Of The Wood Nymphs’ shows another side to the producer with three minutes of suspensory synths and expansive ambient sounds that are filled with drama and tension.

Press Info:
NovaMute welcome ANNA for the Brazilian producer’s first EP on the seminal imprint.

“It’s such an honour to be working with NovaMute. Daniel Miller is a legend and a few years ago I’d never even imagined this would ever happen, such are the happy coincidences in life! Now we’re here and Razor EP is done and it all feels a bit surreal.”

The first track ‘Razor’, which has already been getting a great reaction when played out, came about while playing with her MKS-80 from Roland, an old synth from 1985 and one of ANNA’s favourites. You can hear the fat and juicy sound on the breakdown and ever evolving throughout.

‘Escapism’ plays with trippy arpeggios that lay down the atmosphere for the whole track, it feels really dense but still powerful, making use of heavier drum sounds for the groove.

The last track on the EP, ‘Dreamweaver’, is a simple one that always works well on the dance floor. ANNA reworked ‘Dreamweaver’ many times before deciding to strip down the beat and focus on the final sequence; sometimes the simple ideas are the ones that work the best.

Forthcoming releases on NovaMute will include new EPs from Charlotte de Witte, Terence Fixmer and Nicolas Bougaïeff

Press Info:
Charlotte de Witte presents a new EP on the recently relaunched seminal British imprint NovaMute. It arrives after three acclaimed 2017 EPs from the rising Belgian artist, whose residencies and packed touring schedule have fuelled her reputation as one to watch. ‘Brussels EP’ features three menacing techno cuts employing impeccable production technique and moody atmospherics.

The title track is a restrained burner harnessing strange vocals and stripped back beats over sweltering pads. ‘Control’ pairs distorted speech with a whirlwind of rumbling bass frequencies, whilst ‘Look Around You’ brandishes trance inspired crescendos with hypnotic percussion.

NovaMute, a subsidiary of the legendary Mute label, rose to prominence in the early 90s amidst growing demand for techno in the UK and went on to release classic tracks and albums from an array of coveted artists. In 2017 they relaunched with EPs from Nicolas Bougaïeff and Terence Fixmer.

Press Info:
After the re-launch of seminal imprint NovaMute with an EP from Nicolas Bougaïeff, Terence Fixmer takes over the reins.

Terence Fixmer’s career has spanned two decades with releases on many acclaimed labels. He has been accredited with pushing the boundaries of techno EBM and for the last few years has found a home at OstgutTon.

Having remixed VCMG on Mute in 2015 and Depeche Mode in 2017 Fixmer’s contribution to the NovaMute catalogue is a natural fit.

‘Dance Of The Comets’ is a three track EP exploring the fringes of techno and hypnotic dance music. The title track is the most dance-floor ready cut with a thumping bass drum and kick.

Orion’s sci-fi sequence uses mesmerising drones, whilst ‘The Silence’ is an eery exercise in which otherwordly whispers are centred by a compelling bass motif.

After a ten year hiatus NovaMute, the subsidiary of Mute (Depeche Mode, Goldfrapp, New Order, Liars, Moby) is back. Beginning in 1992 NovaMute released records from acclaimed electronic and techno artists such as Plastikman, Speedy J, Juan Atkins and many more.

Dance Of The Comets by Terence Fixmer (NOMU180) is released on 12” on November 3rd 2017.
