Out now Skoptsy ep by Pete Callard

Our latest release the Skoptsy ep by Pete Callard with remixes from Killawatt (Osiris) and Whistleblower main man Reset Robot (Drumcode & Truesoul).

The two original tracks titled “Xerts” and “Skoptsy” are down tempo Techno tracks with acid bleeps, tense synth parts and murky vocals that combine to create an eerie atmosphere. Despite their relatively slow tempo both originals have a focus on the dancefloor with heavy percussion and driving grooves designed for club sound systems.

Reset Robot keeps his remix of “Xerts” down tempo, but softens the groove opting for an uplifting synth part with dreamlike qualities. Stripped back with sudden bursts of drama, his remix might be distinctly different from the original, but builds with a subtle intensity and being completely captivating from the word go.

Killawatt is a producer known for dark and experimental Techno and his remix is full off added aggression and pulsating energy. Taking no prisoners, he throws down textured effects and crunching percussion to really make it his own and create a driving powerhouse.

The ep is available from all good download websites, you can get a copy from Beatport Here

Introducing Taro Records

Look closely at the line up for our recent Det Sync party and you’ll see one of our favourite upcoming talents: Adicon (AKA Elliot Cronin). Not one to sit on his hands, Elliott has recently been hard at work creating his alter ego Taro Division, in preparation of the launch of Taro Records.

“Taro Records is an unusual techno experience driven by the ideas of Musique Concrete coupled with the versatility of digital sampling. Powerful use of distortion and reverb combined with analogue machines create the foundation of the tracks. Industrial techno influences combined with harsh metallic percussion creates the energetic soundscape that is Taro Records.”

Certainly not a label for the faint hearted or blissfully conventional, Taro Records already has its first few releases lined up in the form of multi track EPs, including remixes from its growing roster of talent. Taro Division also curates a show every 4 weeks on Fnoob Techno Radio which will act as the official Taro Records podcast. It will have guest sets from the artists involved as well as regular new music from Elliott himself.

The first release from Taro Records is available now on Beatport and the preview is below.

Future releases are expected from fellow emerging artists Peppe Amarù, Jack Wright, Aaron Udy, Jasper Boon and Bas Leussink so keep an eye on the label if you’re a fan of more experimental and perhaps plain noisy electronic music.

Bandcamp Techno Blog – April

Think of the world of electronic music and the idea of independence is forever at its core, driving sounds forward, establishing new trends, unleashing new artists upon the world at the same time as giving established musicians control over their own output. Going direct to the DJ or indeed end listener is now an approach made all the easier with the emergence of websites such as Bandcamp. Artists or labels can sell or give away their music direct as well as sell physical releases and merchandise. In this first installment in a series of Bandcamp Techno roundups we take a look at a few recent releases worth your time.

Stowaway by Ansome

Starting with one of the big hitters in the form of the consistently excellent Perc Trax label, we have the new album from modular hero Ansome. Frequently charged with squeezing soul out of the machines, Ansome’s album is a riot of gritty industrialism combined with his by now trademark drum grooves. Indeed, they demand a sea of bodies on the dance floor. Stowaway is available in a metal tin edition CD which comes with downloads as well as a straight up digital release and an unfortunately now sold out double white vinyl. You can also buy the tracks separately, but in all honesty this is an album that demands to be enjoyed in its entirety.

 

Anom Valley EP by Damcase

Another great label currently going direct is Dutch label Mord and this selection is another full album, available digitally and on double vinyl. More brutal sounds but with a classic acidic edge, rolling synths and basslines couple of with bleeps and recognizable drum machines.

 

003 – The Cast Project

The Cast Project aims to play the game a little differently and are a great example of the versatility of both the platform itself and the freedom of independence. First off, whilst not yet officially released, you can bag an advance copy of the digital album by pre-ordering the vinyl. Secondly, the composition of the EP itself is of note. Four artists are gathered and all contribute a small number of samples to what ends up being the working pack. The pack is sent back out and the same four artists build their contribution. The result is a varied EP of soundscapes, dance floor driven grooves and experimental grit. With tracks from Loyd, Paul Birken, Surachai and FBK this release comes highly recommended. No previews are available direct but you can find a link to Soundcloud on the release page.
