it is no surprise after such a long friendship to find nicolas duvoisin and agaric getting in the studio together. this techno release is aimed at destroying the dancefloor at peaktime moments. fast forward is a real long progressive time bomb with a hint of acid, so brace yourselves as this is a groover! flash point on the other hand is more of a tool kind of track for the more « playful » and creative djs.
2012 repress !!! patrik skoog kak agaric isnt only one of the youngest veteran techno and house producers from sweden, he is also one of the most interesting and inspired. though incredibly versatile, the sustained energy in his sets and productions are equally exceptional. in the last two years, agaric established the club tracks 10 inch series on his label we are. besides his own stellar productions, collaborations with close friends shonky, waker bernard, ed davenport, and beaner have also graced the club tracks series. international support came from leading djs like richie hawtin, seth troxler, loco dice, ben klock, luciano, joris voorn, magda, laurent garnier, sven väth, and adam beyer.
2012 repress !! after the incredible success of agarics >who made up the rules< , we come to you with this amazing remix ep. on the a side josh wink is onboard to remix the title track >who made up the rules<. this is vintage wink, pumping and building as only josh can. on the b side we enlist the skills of axel boman who takes the hypnotic >get off my mind< and makes it a funky house jam. two amazing remixes of two incredible tracks that should be heard throughout the summer season
mikael stavöstrand (lick my deck, clink, highgrade) spent a few days in berlin recently, so why not get him over to the we are hq and work on some tracks with agaric, right? the boys first track is a deeper bass driven techno track interchanging grooves and eerie strings and percussion arrangements whereas the flipside on this limited 10 inch goes more funky and presents a surprising vocal bit where vealchop out of los angeles asks himself why certain things went the way they did! already tried and tested to excited crowds in clubs like 1001 london, rex paris and tresor berlin...
support by: r. hawtin, magda, reboot, agaric, someone else, moodymanc, matt star, phonique, paco osuna, audio jack, brian ffar, opuswerk... refined house is what agaric and alejandro vivanco do and they always to it with class. lately in the spotlight thanks to his album on the legendary ovum label, agaric offers us >love dope<, a killer track with a killer synth hook that turns the pressure up as the track reaches its climax and will definitely send all of you straight to the dancefloor.
alejandro vivanco track, >dreaming, is really completely made for the summer season with a fresh vocal and a multitude of effects which never cease to catch you off guard. a pure gem.
to complete this ep, nicolas duvoisin rendition of alejandro vivanco >dreaming<, a subtle remix which gives this track a completely new tech house feel, in line with the dark, sub frequency killers that he has made us grow accustomed to. great work from nico.
your horoscope : dumb-unit merges with 2011 preparing a new outlook and attitude of strong singles for global consumption. the first: a winning combination from walker and agaric. your moods will be exaggerated as long time friends short time studio partners win hearts and minds. stay positive! previous sonic excursions were only a test. the duo now present their new works. listeners world-wide should expect strong hi hats, low rumbles mixed with smart moving percussion. although fantasy themes abound, the narrative is firmly rooted on the dance floor. check attitudes at the door: the uncertain age of irony will be fixed with the proven track record. ... happy lucky golden dragon double 8 good time!
these two tracks have proved to work wonders on dancefloors across the planet, support from all the usual players and a massive follow up to the previous two >club tracks< releases in the series, which have received plays and praise by djs from all various styles such as laurent garnier, d julz, heartthrob, luke slater and dj hell to name a few. a-side track >nobody home< grows into a huge build using an oldschool moog-bassline, whilst the b-side chops up and pitches around an edited voicerecording over straight forward beat, resulting in a very unusual, groovy and hypnotic jam for the late hours.

adam beyer imprint. a stunning two tracker by agaric and steve logan. the a side is a fantastic chugging track with razor sharp production that just builds and builds with key elements like swirling vocals and synths and a funky bassline. the flip takes a much darker approach with its reverse bass line, synth pattern and super sharp hi hats. this is another fanatastic release from one of the hottest labels around at the moment
big with richie hawtin, adam beyer, dubfire... adam beyers cult mad eye label returns after one year with potentially one of the coolest 2 trackers of the year. he teams up here with agaric(patrick skoog) to create a 2 track masterpiece. the a side california gold brilliantly utilises a vocal sample and ncreates a blissed out dubby masterpiece. this track will almost certainly be hammered at clubs like dc10 this summer as it was in many venues in miami...
