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.

Press Info:
Slam return on their Soma Records label, with the Quiet Riot EP.

2020 has been a very prolific year for the the duo, delivering their 4th EP for the label so far this year. All their firing trademark sounds and intricacies remain intact in this 3 track hard hitting release.

Severed opens with hard, industrial elements as the relentless percussion fires off, but in true Slam style the vibe remains hypnotic and engaging. Motor drifts into more Birmingham-esq territory with twitch and modulating sequences leading the way again straight, jacked up percussion. Intensifying things on the last track, Electrical turns up the drive and delivers tension with white knuckle percussive workouts, thundering kicks and dynamic synths.

Press Info:
Huseyin Evirgen returns to Soma for his 4th solo release under his Magna Pia alias with the stunningly constructed Tocharian EP. The classically trained musician always delivers heart & soul throughout his Magna Pia releases, taking the listener on a journey with every track.

Tocharian Sex swells with resonating and staccato synths hooks that guide you through swirling, glacial tones and shimmering percussion. Prester John leads with reverberating bells like tones than intensify throughout and once again, magna Pia’s delicate percussive elements work in tandem beautifully. Ur-David delivers a sinister tone and unnerving synths drone and swell, melding together in a unearthly cacophony. Closing out the EP is the minimalistic and hypnotically elemental The Beauty Of Loulan. Modulating synths give grace and sway as beautifully crafted drones and undertones bring an epic finality to this closing piece

Press Info:
New high octane release from Glasgow’s Quail + AISHA

Glasgow based Techno force and Animal Farm residents, Quail & AISHA , team up once again for their second EP on Soma with the Leatherbound EP.

After debuting earlier this year with The Fall EP, the pair have continued their creative work in the studio and deliver on high octane & intense Techno based workouts, taking inspiration from fast, modern rave and tougher edged sounds. The EP is further backed from French new blood and fellow Soma Records cohort Felicie, who turns in a hard hitting and rawer interpretation of title track Leatherbound.

Title track Leatherbound hammers hard and fast with an electrified main hook and tripped out vocal samples – with Felicie upping the tempo and grafting her own fervent sound onto the original. Closing out with Hidden Form, a more rolling and pulsing vibe takes over with hints of euphoria throughout.

Press Info:
Magna Pia makes a welcome return to the Soma family with his latest release, the Narcissist EP. As one half of the duo Cassegrain, Hüseyin Evirgen has been at the forefront of the European Techno scene for some time. Since starting the Magna Pia alias with Soma in the last couple of years, he has taken further steps to cement his place as one of contemporary Techno’s heroes.

Title track Narcissist sets a strong pace as direct and fast paced drums lead perfectly into a jarring and catchy hook, blended together with straight up percussion and persistent drones. Next up, The Sun In My Disgrace lends itself to a more hypnotic feel as pulsating synths build steadily against a flurry of crisp 808 hats. Into The Flood Again closes out the EP as Magna Pia once again delivers on a trance-inducing trip complete with subtle sequences that ebb and flow throughout the track, building tension throughout.
