Press Info:
Glasgow’s Quail + AISHA return for 3rd Soma EP

Glasgow Techno stalwarts Quail + AISHA are back on home turf for their 3rd release on Soma with the Sunna EP. Following up last year’s ‘Leatherbound EP’ the pair’s collective works have brought around three new hard hitting, banging tracks that merge their love of Techno’s various disciplines into one cohesive pack.

Title track Sunna offers up the EP’s darker and more sinister tone. Heavy kicks and fierce rolling synths drive across this propellant track. Gower has a more upbeat feel but the duo keep things dance floor ready with their typically hard and fast style; layering up percussion steadily as a twisted synth hook steadily unfolds throughout. Stim closes out the EP and has the Glasgow based duo on a slightly more deeper and contemplative tip. Sturdy percussive workouts are the backbone of the track while atmospheric, morphing pads and synths take control as the soul of the track.

Nørbak is quickly making a name for himself in the global scene and has just complete his debut album to much critical acclaim. The young producer has built a wealth of knowledge on sound design and is Cleary represented in his music which is deep and rich in sonic experiments whilst retaining dancefloor focus. This latest EP has Spanish Techno maestro Oscar Mulero & fellow Portuguese talent Lewis Fautzi, deliver two fantastic remixes that perfectly compliment the originals.

Nørbak’s ‘Myelination’ starts the EP with driving percussive elements that propel the track from the opening. Swamped with light & ethereal FX, dark and droning sounds take the track down a ominous path. Lewis Fautzi steps up next with his remix of Myelination A more minimalistic interpretation he manages to continue the dark and direct momentum of the original. On the flip, Mirante rattle hards with steady and precise percussion, bolted together with heavy rolling kicks and sub and a perfectly muted rhythm throughout. Techno don Oscar Mulero closes the EP with his version of Mirante. He immediately ups the ante with driving 909 beats and huge atmospheric FX that guide the rhythms. Mulero always on point with his signature sound design and techno aesthetic.

Press Info:
Italian Techno maestro SLV returns to Soma with his biggest release yet, the Under Pressure EP. With a slew of hits + an album under his belt at Soma, SLV ramps up the pace with this latest release. Two thunderous, rave-infected tracks lead the charge with remixes from label heads Slam and veteran Thomas P. Heckmann.

Opening track Perpetual Slaughter rips through the speakers with riot inducing vocals tearing at the heart of this massive bomb. Phoenix Rising continues the hard hitting theme as pulsing synths drive continuously letting up only momentarily before thrashing drums explode through. Soma label bosses, Slam, drop a typically wild remix of Perpetual Slaughter working in their own interpretation of the original’s synth hook, complete with a decisive percussive assault. Legendary Techno artist Thomas P Heckmann delivers a seriously funked up, 90s-esq version of Perpetual Slaughter. Manipulating his hardware and twisting the synths to give his typically authentic and renowned, body music sound.

Masked Techno assassin Buried Secrets returns to Soma with a massive new release featuring his signature hard and distorted Techno with the Destiny Defeated EP. With several Soma releases under his belt including 2020’s huge Of Lost Things EP, Buried Secrets continues his assault with this massive new EP.

Title track Destiny Defeated roars into life with relentless percussion and a ripping rave infected synth hook. Vanishing Point is a proper heads down, no nonsense affair – a little more subtle than the opening track but just as intensive. Dream Stalker heads into proper Hard Techno territory with thundering, pulsating low end as the hook opens into a more euphoric affair. Land of The Lost closes the EP with a huge flourish. A superbly crafted synth sequence loops and hypnotises as the drums workout batters you into submission.

Press Info:
Belgian based Phara makes a huge debut on Soma with The Great Attractor EP. With his fast, raw and energetic sound, Phara’s ascent has been quick off the mark and this latest release has the young producer stretch himself farther with cleverly produced and exciting tracks. UK Techno don, Setaoc Mass backs up this already masterful EP, lending his own prowess to the title track.

Great Attractor leans on 90s, spaced out techno vibes as fast paced 909s fire against the backdrop of rapid, modulating synths. Setaoc Mass’ remix comes up next, offering a deeper more restrained affair. However, as usual, the adept nature of his productions deal out devastating effect. On the flip, Mission 3,2,1 delves into dubbed out synth work whilst retaining drive and groove. Further dub explorations are found on closing track The Andromeda Manoeuvre. Spacial synth work and atmospherics ebb and flow as Phara’s hard hitting and relentless percussive work deals the final blow.
