krill musics first ep of 2017 comes at the hands of dimi angelis. following on from the various artist compilation earlier this year, which featured tracks from he/at, pulse one, zedje and auditory response. whether its his solo work or his work with jereon search under the a&s moniker, angelis has always kept his work stripped back with a lot of focus on groove. black lines pays testament to the purity in the greek-born dutch resident’s approach to techno. panic attack opens the ep abruptly, loaded with an overbearing sense of urgency - led by an undulating main hook and hectic percussion. if i could fly digs a bit deeper - angelis groove never lets slip while a screeching drone paves the way for a heads down affair. glow comes equipped with scattered hi hats which sit atop some off-kilter bleep work - which make for a challenging cerebral outing. zadig rounds black lines off nicely by rearranging glows iconic main hook over some celestial pads, all the while formulating a new story to the moody original.
2016 has been a very fruitful year for krill music. the habitat series places focus on shedding light on budding new talents and seasoned veterans alike through solitary tracks. the year kicked off with an ep from those that fall into the latter category - those of whom need little introduction, in stanislav tolkachev, i/y, +platfform and stefan vincent. throughout the course of the year, we then saw the likes of matrixxman, ilario alicante and mental resonance contribute to the now infamous concatenation.
it is with great pleasure that we announce the first edition of the krill south series. the series will be making history, right from its inaugural release, by being the first ever techno release to be pressed and distributed from argentina. the release will coincide with a partnership with conekta records. the first release will be a reissue of a remastered version of two of krill’s hottest releases - jonas kopp’s ‘anklad’ (which was featured on krill’s maiden voyage back in 2011) and raffael attanasio’s x501’s ‘x505.5’ (which can be found on the a-side of the fourth krill release with bleak’s offerings on the flip). kopp and attanasio’s contributions to the techno scene have sky-rocketed since their last krill output and it’s an honour to be able to reissue something that has been marked as legendary on krill’s accolade. krill music
krill music habitat va part v comes armed with 4 original cuts. carefully curated to create a breadth of styles whilst maintaing a sense of cohesion, with a thin thread running throughout - in the form of hypnotism and unease. its been nearly 5 years since krill music embarked on its maiden voyage, and in that time has managed to accumulate quite the accolade of heavy weight artists. providing a platform for ever relevant luminaries, such as pfirter, thomas hessler, charlton and the rogue-techno-mercenary stanislav tolkachev- the argentinian/norwegian outpost has garnered quite the momentum in just half a decade.
after the part iii, the part iv of habitat series focuses all the energies on the next 4 track project where matrixxman, mental resonance, benjamin mull and christian lisco are the protagonist of this highly flammable ep. dark, acid, futuristic and rough elements blend together into something incredibly harmonious.
once again krill music takes command of the shuttle towards another sonic dimension, a complicated journey to the limits of sound where mesmerising melodies act like the songs of sirens, through obscure and dense jungle foliage where the sunlight is rare and the night reigns. so with seat-belts fastened, onto the latest release...
