album debut from inter gritty! this island-hopping adventure takes us from the quirky depths of ictis through the 303 workout of stac lee and the brutal pounding of swona, to the lush electronics of cijin. the norrkąping, sweden-based producer has taken his sound one step further from his previous eps and painted a bigger picture, covering an archipelago of sound that offers both rough seas, jagged cliffs and serene forests.
miss sunshine is back on random island! she s definitely not brought the sun with her, rather opting to throw you straight into a black hole with nothing but earth-shattering bass, spaced-out bleeps and sweeps to keep you company. on the flip, souls reemerge is another assault on the senses, massive distorted arpeggios towering over a relentless beat. finally, the closing anti hero will shake the life back into you with its highly efficient, jacking groove.
snaga the angry hungry acid monster wants to hurt you bad. he/she/it is joined by tezina, a highly useful techno tool that puts a beat to the voices in your head. on the flip, super production duo johanna knutsson and hans berg tame the beast and send him/her/it on a solo mission to a galaxy far, far away

three live recorded hardware jams from abygatan, norrkoping, sweden. ntta11 are nihad tule and inter gritty, and an array of old and new machines. this ep offers a trippier take on live techno than their first 11-, but still very much pure-bred techno all the way. except the closing meta incognita, which is something else. we re not quite sure what.
linda and thomas, two lovely people and also two tracks that fuse together the stripped-down industrial sound with the playful jacking youve heard from the men from mostar and malmo before. for the remix, the wizard of osch took thomas 33 to his underground science lab and applied advanced future algorithms to twist the sounds into new shapes
machines meet nature on this ep, partly built around field recordings of ice movements on a frozen lake. on the a-side, sagastyr is the sound of an arctic volcano to a pounding beat. ambrym serves its icy soundscape with jacking drum patterns, and the closing mamula takes it deeper again with drones, grains and vintage drums
croatias miss sunshine brings you some seriously pounding, no-nonsense techno action. backyard is a freight train of bass and beat, no less. inter gritty is on remix duty and recalibrates it to hypnotic, bass-heavy monotony. on the flipside, wake up call takes it deeper with lush pads piling up on a powerful beat.
