first second label is proud to present its second and forthcoming 12” from canadian duo minimal violence. four rowdy house and techno excursions that move from rolling synth melancholia to full blown, tape saturated work outs. rough around the edges and ready to tear holes in anything that crosses it’s path.
dublin based first second label debut their first 12 inch from russian obscure techno stalwart bessiekats *oh, night wish ep*.
*thorny bushes an buches* is a throbbing jam that rides at a relentless 130bpm, with heavy kicks and rattling echoes drowned in a sea of hi-hats. *your leaves* is similarly abrasive, with alternating toms and cowbells leading the way for nightmarish strains. *808 times* closes the release in a relatively serene mood, its electro kicks and gated synths showing bessiekats well rounded approach.
who is der opium queen? a royalty in the locality, but unknown to the masses, makes a wave to everyone for the first time with his 12” “in the clouds”. here you can find hot and humid tracks coming straight from the tschungle, then chopped and transported straight to the turntable.
