(JoeFarr Remix)

 

Press Info:
Fran Hartnett performs and records his tracks in one take. He is also a well known tattoo artists who operates out of Skin City in Dublin. He actually tattooed my wife’s foot recently which is the most painful part of the body you can tattoo, apart from the genitals, but she wasn’t up for that. Anyway I digress, so he makes techno, he’s an artist, DJ, live act, he puts art on people’s skin, he did the art for his release and the next 7 UX releases.. he’s a really nice guy, he’s got great taste in music so.. he’s actually starting to piss me off, is there anything he’s not good at? He’s making me look bad. I tried to outdo him with a remix of his track ‘Grace Map’ but I think you’ll agree the original is better so fuck you Fran, fuck you.

How You Want It

 

Press Info:
It was the beginning of 2016, I remember going down the stairs of that foggy Kreuzkolln basement. The floor was packed, the walls were sweaty, the air was so dense that you couldn’t use a lighter. The vibe, I guess it can only be described as pure Herrensauna. I looked to the DJ booth and I saw this guy playing with records, in a heavy punk attitude, some 140 bpm (at least) dark tribal techno which I thought I was never gonna listen in a club.

-Who is he- I asked a friend, who was fully trapped in that pounding rhythm – I don’t know some guys from Denmark – he replied, showing me with his body language that I should stop talking and enjoy the show. And so I did.

It didn’t take me long to find out that this guy at the controls was known as Sugar but his name was Nikolaj. Neither that he was one of the founders of, what was going to be, one of the most influential collectives in the techno scene just a couple of years after that. Nor that these guys do this with the heart and that’s why they are authentic.

Proudly presenting Fast Forward.
From Copenhagen, with love.”

Nibbãna
(DJ Varsovie ‘Xenia Onatopp’ Remix)

 

Press Info:
Shades Of Black EP is a transcription of our soul’s darkness in a different manifestation. Seen as some kind of lucid dream in which there is no way out and where you must face your scariest unconscious facets. Here the key words of self-comprehension are only chaos and despair. Introspection, self-reassessment and courage to face yourself represent what this four-part journey is about. Don’t be afraid to meet yourself and jump into your shades of black.

Parisian Dahlia is breaking through the early morning mist of France with his debut-ep on Märked. Spewing 4 powerful tracks influenced by EBM and a taste of new age industrial techno. The EBM cult of muscularity is heard through strokes of a whip on the 2 and 4, a characteristic arpeggiated synth and an obscure female vocal in ‘Enma’. These ingredients talk strength and punishment on the dance floor.

‘Shinigami’ – although having a similar programmed EBM snare – here benefits from more uplifting notes. Shinigami literally translates as God Of Death, of which the perception of the contrasting hard kicks and percussion to the leaning towards peacefully designed pad sound would come across as a calm a funeral for your own peace of mind.

Apart from the tracks all being peak-time bangers, Nibbãna has a more nuanced approach. After starting off with relentless power this piece develops into a nostalgic trip down memory lane. The soothing and majestic notes of the synthesizer create a timeless space in which thoughtful is mixed with aggression.

The mysterious DJ Varsovie appears as a remixer with a massive industrial breakbeat sledgehammer. Reverberated warehouse sounds are alternated with multiple salvo’s of kickdrum gunfire. The introduction of the vocal after the break cuts your favorite dance floor in half. Use this weapon with caution – only for the trained ear.
