cassegrain announce collaborative ep. the berlin based duo of alex tsiridis & hüseyin evirgen will release new work recorded alongside dj nobu, tensal & lady starlight via their own arcing seas imprint in september. leaning towards the more heady, high octane end of the genre - the three track ep showcases the duos natural affinity for collaboration, maintaining evirgen & tsiridis characteristic finish and atten-tion to detail, whilst providing ample space for the guests to properly colour the work. ct01, alongside tensal, marries caustic drones with a potent lead sequence to produce a perfect peak time roller, whilst cn01, with dj nobu, riffs on a more melodic, stepping approach - maintaining that same rousing energy, but with a more psychedelic bent. cls01, the duos collaboration with la-dy starlight comes in at almost 11 minutes, an ambient techno journey that warps and shifts organi-cally across its extended run time - complete with beat-less intro and multiple segues that work to bind the piece and its different sections into one, cohesive narrative. effective and impeccably produced - but with a keen ear for new & exciting sonics within the genre - this first collaborative outing proves an enviable addition to the duos already impressive discogra-phy.

for over 18 years, spectral sound, the dance music imprint of ghostly international, has thrived at the forefront of techno and house. it has been a source of support for numerous djs and producers during that time, from matthew dear and benoit & sergio to avalon emerson and hieroglyphic being. now, spectral brings the past alongside the present with its latest release, a compilation that offers a vibrant cross-section of the current moment in underground dance music. despite the wide-ranging selections on spectral 139, a throughline of classic style and infectious energy emerges from the up-and-coming and established artists alike. rising talents such as minimal violence, russell e.l. butler, and earth trax x newborn jr. bring unique perspectives to their hardware-centric productions. veteran producers bring their own edge as well: d marc cantu blows the roof off with the outsized funk of regularly people, and nigil caenaans januarys end, a low-key detroit classic from the late 90s, closes spectral 139 with a whirlwind of manic rhythms and sedate synths. gunnar haslam opens the tracklist with his acidic mindbender, versione antica. and ghostly regulars like tadd mullinix, who drops a lush jtc remix of his new x-altera alias, and matrixxman, who collaborates with riccardo limiti on the cavernous inferno, tie everything back to the label s roots. the double 12 compilation, as well as each individual single, features original work by los angeles-based artist nina hartmann. her designs have appeared on releases from labels such as ascetic house and big love, and the pieces for spectral 139 continue to develop her cryptic aesthetic. the marriage of hartmanns striking, high-contrast symbols with such bold dance music speaks to a collection that aims to stand out.

sold out on pre-sale 100 copies only. comes on blue transparent vinyl. mastered by helmut erler at dubplates & mastering, berlin. the next releases on eotrax will round off a busy 2018 for the label and set out an exciting proposition for a future way of working and releasing music. in what will be an ongoing, curated collaboration series artists will be invited to make work together for the label, without restrictions on genre, style or aesthetics. an open environment of collaboration and experimentation which will then be released by the label. to launch this series label head eomac teams up with four different artists over four slabs of vinyl, to be released sequentially over four months. the collaborations are improvised and composed, wild and emotive, unexpected and expected and all of them resulting in music that would never have been made by either artist individually. first up is a two-tracker from techno powerhouse and self confessed noisician paula temple and eomac. on the a-side the synth heavy gestirn takes inspiration from autechres classic eutow, driving forward with a broken beat while celestial melodic lines reach skyward to unknown realms. the b-side introduces a wilder beast, with the ferocious, pummeling techno of kralle
as we reach our 30th release on the label, animal farm is proud to present stephanie sykes’ first solo ep since 2016’s effort on prodigal son. those two years have seen her presence in the techno scene explode, with a flurry of appearances across europe - our own animal farm night in glasgow among them + residencies at tbilisi’s khidi and the infamous after hours jaded crew in london, corsica studios.
the next one is signed by one of my contemporary idols. his zero-f*cks-giving attitude and his aim to move forward make ascion the perfect artist to keep telling this story which two years ago was started to write. it could have been nineteen ninety two or today. it could be acid, techno-trance or even ardcore (you know the score). echoes from belgian new beat and uk’s intelligent dance music resound all along it. call it how you want and no matter when or where. this rave instrument is going to fill many epic warehouse moments. there is no way to escape: welcome to your finest nightmare. - hector oaks, september mmxviii
after the initial label launch in 2016, desroi has been working insistently. debuting on labels such as henning baer’s manhigh or shifted’s avian, the young artist has worked his name into the scene. this time, desroi returns to his own imprint with “eutheria”. with an unadorned focus on percussive drive and rugged atmosphere all three tracks invite to be played out in a dark but hypnotizing warehouse rave. his ability to shape-shift from experimental sonic explorations right up to pure and straight-forward techno cuts reiterates that desroi is someone to keep an eye on.
“pillar” is the second release to come from london based duo, abstract man, uniting three original tracks plus one remix from pioneering french producer, von grall. signifying the second stage of the pair’s studio time, “pillar” delves further into a shared love for rhythmic, textured techno and dynamic grooves.
farrago created a name for himself in this short time taking back the real roots of techno and rave and putting them in a new context... we said new, not different. this is his 3rd record on the label, and this time he goes beyond the idea of reminiscing the past, “hard light” shows how the rave can be alive in everyone of us, and absolutely not changing the formula he gives us this beautiful feeling of being back in the past, while you dig in a record shop and you find something that hits you, in our past was that record that gave us memories. in this case the work of this record is almost double, the record itself reminisces the past, but gives good hope for the future of genuine rave music without compromises.
