Press Info:
Terence Fixmer has announced details of a new album, his debut for Mute, and shared the first single, ‘Corne de Brume’. The new album, Shifting Signals, is set for release on double vinyl, CD and digitally on 2 December 2022.

Over two decades, Terence Fixmer has mapped his singular sound across a sizable stack of singles, EPs and seven grit-smeared solo albums intended to make you sweat. For his first album on Mute, the space-inspired Shifting Signals, he deals out a fistful of club-minded, pitch-black ragers while expanding his sound palette to convey a wider spectrum of moods.

Lead single ‘Corne de Brume’ (meaning “foghorn”) is the album’s guiding star and hard-hitting statement piece; a six-minute tempest of sawtoothed synths designed to evoke a ship’s foghorn, setting a moody and uncompromising tone with ear-piercing synthwork that slices through the foggy noise. “I was imagining a boat sailing off somewhere into the distance”, says Fixmer.

Throughout Shifting Signals, the follow up to 2018’s album Through the Cortex, he fixes his gaze on a vivid sci-fi world where deep space stretches out infinitely. Shifting Signals was sparked by a formative childhood viewing of Ridley Scott’s 1979 sci-fi horror classic Alien. “I was totally traumatised but at the same time fascinated by it,” he recalls. “I kept thinking about the images from the film while I was making this album”.

Shifting Signals swoops, dips and scales the heights of white-knuckle adventure, and throughout the album concepts of unknowable space extend to the vast and mysterious natural world in our more immediate orbit. On tracks such as ‘Corne de Brume’ and ‘Step to the Edge’ Fixmer captures more tangible elements – the sea, earth – but always with an eye on their wild and uncontrollable side.

On ‘Step to the edge’, Fixmer reverts to techno fervour noddding to his floor-shaking club repertoire. Similarly, ‘No Latitude for Errors’ plots the brawny coordinates of EBM via an onslaught of jabbing synths and furious beats. Along with hypnotic stomper ‘The Way I See You’, these tracks feel noticeably rooted in the trailblazing ‘techno body music’ he’s known by many for.

But it’s not all fire, brimstone and banging techno. ‘The Passage’ slowly builds tension through layers of droning, noise that surges powerfully, like a jet engine. “Everyone will obviously see something different, but for me it conjures a space centre in an alien movie at the point when you hear the transmission; it’s futuristic. You see a space shuttle floating somewhere into infinity,” offers Fixmer.

Meanwhile, the clear-eyed piano and B-movie synths on ‘Synthetic Mind’ bring a cinematic element to the album that ambient closing track ‘Desertic’ brings into focus. “I wanted give people a direct movie image in their head when they listen to it,” says Fixmer.

“On each album I aim for something different but I retain the core sound, which is always there and often dark and melancholic. Sometimes the balance tips slightly and on this album, I’m striving to be freer and open myself up more to melody.”

(B2 Remix)

Warp Speed

 

Press Info:
With recent releases on Sindex, Under Division, Crusade, Otomo Trax & Insane Industry, Analect is quickly making waves in the underground scene with his forward-thinking sound. His next release ‘Don’t Stop’ will be on the Manchester-native vinyl imprint label Moments In Time, featuring three striking original cuts, accompanied by a standout remix from German artist B2.

Swinging the door wide open with a furiously potent peak-time cut is title track ‘Don’t Stop’. Riding a solid base of hammering kicks and blistering hat grooves, the track’s rave-inspired synth lead and subtly acidic low-frequency elements bring a darkened atmosphere to the mix to match its ominous vocal hook.

German DJ/Producer B2 follows with his rendition of the title track, serving a generous portion of industrial elements, its high-octane energy and bottom-heavy beats deliver a hair-raising dancefloor experience.

‘Stop The Party’ comes next, keeping the tempo high and the rhythms explicitly weighty. More hammering drums and electrifying hat sequences pave the way for sawing synth licks and trance-like leads, whilst a hardcore-inspired vox laces the mix with a nostalgic ‘90s hardcore feel.

The release comes to a firm close on ‘Warp Speed’, completing a quad of driving Industrial Techno bombs. Much like its predecessors, its fusion of Hardcore, Rave and even PsyTrance elements showcase the extent of Analect’s unparalleled sonic signature and vision – marking an impressive full solo MIT debut from the rising Mancunian!

Press Info:
Manchester-based Rudosa has been at the helm of Moments in Time for 3 years now, hand-picking every release to curate a uniquely personal, pulsating industrial sound. With plaudits and fans alike, his future focused, ‘90s-influenced music is finding favour wherever there’s a dancefloor. For his newest EP, Rudosa brings the classic sounds of UK hardcore bang up to date. Opening with ‘Stronger Rhythm’ crunchy drums and clattering percussions form the bedrock groove onto which he adds rhythmic vocals, and a and wild synths. It’s a dark ride that’ll put a massive smile on Next up, ‘It Is What It Is’ continues the trend expanding on the chopped-up breaks and spiky lead lines. Blending the hard trance synth sounds synonymous with E- Werk and Ultraschall and the modern industrial warehouse growl is no mean feat, and this is about as perfect as it gets. ‘Inviolable Power’ pounds from the first bar. More traditional sounding than the previous two, it by no means lacks punch – the main hook is arms aloft central for sure. An anthem in the making and sure to be hammered by all the big names in the scene. Finally, rounding off this impressive tetrad, is ‘Rejected’. Overdriven gabba kicks, shuffling percussions and a tensive energy set this apart. Once the acid and eerie lead synths kick in it’s all over bar the shouting!
