across the four tracks the studio r approach is further refined, balancing the desire for solid rhythmic constructions with a more introspective, soul-stirring musical message that makes for the most timeless, meaningful electronic music. after the bold statement of the triple-vinyl studio r 003 release that saw fred p, mike parker, dj spider and more alongside newer artists, the label returns with a single that continues the mission of the berlin-based broadcast and record label project. dealing in the most adventurous and heartfelt corners of contemporary house and techno, studio r 004 once again pairs established artists with unsung talent.
amazing & groundbreaking compilation!! with success comes ambition, and on the heels of two successful 12-inch releases that followed the changing seasons of 2013, studio r returns for fall 2014 with our most expansive offering yet. coming in the form of a 12 track triple ep, our third release revisits one illustrious name – fred p – while deepening the roster with a list of the renown like brendon moeller, exercise one and mike parker, hot upcoming names like zadig, dj spider, and hakim murphy, and lesser knowns, some new but others with long histories. those with their ears to the ground will certainly perk up for contributions from andré kronert and boyd schidt, each of which can trace their production histories back over a decade, the former as head of night drive music and the latter as half of the georgian duo greenbeam & leon. the remaining three – harry light, jū,,ras lietus, and weitone – are all newer, with the first making his debut here, the second having debuted on our own wavereform imprint, and the third ostensibly new, although he may have some history we will not reveal here.
