following up the debut release from altitude, vade mecum returns with an ep on the limited 10inch series with another legend in the dub techno world - merv. they became notorious after some releases in the second half of the 90s, which included two tracks that are now considered dub techno classics: >dust< and >melted vein<. the copenhagen based duo are back in the studio for a couple of years, after almost 2 decades of silence. since then, they already relased some quality new material on top labels from the scene, and we are absolutely delighted and excited to have them onboard.
limited repress. for the last 20 and something years, matt thibideau has been involved in making electronic music. in the mid 90s he dove into making ambient and techno music after experiencing some of canadas underground parties. this lead to several releases on blue recordings with matts moniker at the time - >altitude<. under this alias he produced several dub techno classics, but he stopped using it about 15 years ago to work with new german labels. we are happy that after making a comeback on labels like assemble music or helena, matt decided to open the new color series on vade mecum, which focuses on 10inch dub techno styled vinyl.
glueped is the collaborative alias of mihai mihalcea and cristi tudorache, better known as teluric and melodie. already having released with their solo projects on some of the scenes most distinguished imprints, they have joined creative forces once again to put together an ep for vade mecum, an already familiar output for teluric. the result will set you sailing in shifty winds - going from nostalgic to ecstatic, from mystery to comfort and warmth, without losing touch with the dancefloor.
vade mecum is the latin for a handbook that is intended to be carried at all times. the new bucharest based label aims for the same thing, putting together for the first release three tracks that trancend time and genres.
