the empire line present six cyclonic episodes for confined spaces on their debut album, rave. comprised of posh isolation s christian stadgaard (damien dubrovnik, vanity productions), jonas ronnberg (varg), and with isak hansen (iron sight) on tantrums, the trio s marauding live shows have been translated into a slippery set of pummelling techno works, watermarked with florid noise. rave is a celebration of contemporary rave culture, focused on the everlasting and transcendent as the night slips out past the day. with living-for-the-weekend hedonism irretrievably converted into a manicured, violent cliche, building new worlds and forging new modes of intimacy takes an exceptional sincerity. naming some of the crews closest to the empire line in the album s titles, their spaces are examples of just how rave culture persists as a transgressive stronghold in people s lives. ranging from k-hole anthems to jacking, close-range sessions, rave still bears the traces of the group s experimental background, ensuring the tension is kept up through the catharsis.

rave or die is delighted to welcome another techno rave pioneer into the fold. neil landstrumm (tresor, peacefrog) has been the key figure of the scottish experimental sound for more than two decades now, multiplying nasty cuts under numerous disguises including die fly die, navario sauro or polaris whilst spearheading future funk on his well known scandinavia records. on rod number nine, neil teams up with edinburg producer and sativae founder dave tarrida to deliver a banging morocco tune made of pumpin basslines and crunching breaks! these guys are no joke when it comes to set fire on the dancefloor. on the flipside, rod mastermind umwelt strikes back with (u=e-rl), an enigmatic equation and most probably the secret formula to smoke warehouses! old schoolish grooves with some extra muscle acid lines fused into heavy kicks turn this mental track a la the mover into an ode to rave music. a perfect combo of 4/4 anthems in their purest and primitive form, a 10inch that melds disparate sounds with scary intends!

emmanuel’s “rave culture” is a record that pushes the boundaries of techno to another level. “rave culture” is his first full-length on the label bringing 2x12” round of wax. ten cuts that are committed to fill a space in the rave scene that no one else has done in terms of power, experimentation, work of soul and most of all showing respect for the old-school way of doing things. this lp is his largest achievement yet and aims to showcase who he is.
emmanuel directs the listener to unknown territory keeping them very concentrated on a rave scenario, but also giving them different reasons to think, act & explode - all with the right balance. deadly floor massacre weapons and well crafted heavy bass works elevate to a modern way of thinking as well as challenging the dancer to think forward and get inspired.

following a killer debut on optimo trax michele mininni debuts on r&s with the heavy hitting psych detonation of ‘rave oscillations’ hailing from southern italy, mininni s influences run to kraut, post rock, new wave and electronic amongst others, a long time dj he manages to condense his influences into beguiling productions that come as a welcome breath of originality. taking a heavy dose of inspiration from seminal kraut groovers silver apples, ‘rave oscillations’ builds from the hypnotic motorik groove and off kilter bass into a pulsing peak time anthem. on the flip, ‘vortex stasi’ takes things into a more psychedelic direction - dubbed out piano, jittery rhythms and spiralling swathes of guitar blossom into a truly tripped out, squalling, breakneck concoction. mininni s kaleidoscopic musical vision is a truly unique proposition, a myriad of different styles and genres deformed under his oblique lens to create sun-drenched space music.

der zweite teil der “haul & pull up”-ep-trilogie, die ihre vollendung mit dem album “haul & pull up” im april 2017 finden soll, erscheint - wie auch dessen vorgänger - als limitierte 12” mit vollfarbcover und banderole. das vinyl des münchener dj- und produzenten-duos enthält drei vielgestaltige, mit prominenten mitstreitern eingespielte clubtracks, die zwischen grime, dancehall, dub und techno lästige genrebegrenzungen verwischen und mit gut getimtem groove zum subsonischen bassinferno ansetzen. den auftakt macht das stück “goodbye”. bei der kollaboration mit dem noise-rap-king gonjasufi handelt es sich um ein außerordentlich dunkel gefärbtes acid-drone, das auf gitarrenwänden und lärmenden drums reitet. “pop off” setzt über footwork-beats und zeitlupen-bässen die vokalakrobatik des langjährigen schlachthofbronx-mitstreiters doubla k in szene. deutlich sportlicher geht es auf dem mit warrior queen realisierten track “u mad” zu, der mit mindestens 160 bpm die gelüste der uptempo-headbanger unter uns befriedigt.
