although this is a brand new contemporary record. every single time i play it brings me 20 years back, as if it would belong to another era. reminding me those times when we used to live for the music. when the outfits were colorful and flashy. when e was the only god we believed in. when the rave or the club were the places, where you were who you wanted to be and accepted as it. where you found love, friends and yourself. creating a new reality from which, we never wanted to leave.
following the success of their first release, paris based label blocaus series comes up with a various artists release including french artists zadig, anetha, awb & kas:st. specially designed for sweaty dancefloors, this versatile 4 track compilation treats differents aspects of techno music. from hypnotic tunnels and big room cuts to smashing 90s groove. proper essential vibes from paris!

the french techno party thrower is proud to present its new label called blocaus series. the first release is produced by their talented resident anetha, real icon of the blocaus crew. the ep consists of three driving, hypnotic and banging tracks inspired by 90s rave cuts. the dutch artist stranger contributes a massive remix, making the whole ep hyper effective and catchy. from the trippy and hypnotic interstellar and towards infinity on the a-side, to the straight banging up leftlover love and stranger s remix on the b-side, this debut release is just an incipient illustration of what can be expected from this young and promising label.
following on from anethas ophiuchus ep last year, work them records founder spencer parker has compiled a remix package featuring himself and french techno stalwart antigone. a key component in the thriving parisian techno scene, anetha is a resident at monthly party series blocaus. spencer reworks drive with a dead girl, incorporating punchy kicks and shuffling hats before the originals mesmerising arpeggios come into effect. on the other hand antigone distorts black widow beyond recognition by blending fuzzy atmospherics with a cavernous 808 and glitchy hook. concluding the release is a bonus track from anetha herself titled traces to nowhere with its gloomy pads and squelchy melodies.
ryc continues a global showcase of techno cities. reunited for a second time, the finest talents of berlin and paris put their heavyweight tracks on vinyl. two parisians equally infamous in the techno scene, anetha and françois x, bring unique vigor and subtle mystery to this split ep while the accurate brutality of i/y and furious drums of abayomi represent berlins offerings.
