having presented a:rpia:r s petre inspirescu on lmd011 we now look to a second generation key romanian innovator, barac nicolae, who showcases his unique sound with three very special and personal cuts for lmd020. inspired by his love of nature and shamanism.
after getting off to a strong start, resolute s disdat sublabel noticeably raises the bar with a heavy hitting cast for its second edition. thomas melchior takes a break from his usual haunts to drop a track brimming with micro house flair, as hillbilly high throws down an infectious run of goofy samples over a solid beat. vincent lemieux meanwhile takes a smoother route with the warm chord-laden atmosphere of in momos jeep, working crafty percussion impeccably in the deep surroundings. rising talent barac meanwhile gets fresh with the cheeky synth lines on his own offering, making this an ep of fresh variations on the minimal house sound.
the 4th moment records installment brings us an intriguing collaboration between the labels owner, barac, and the french electronic composer lyonel bauchet.
stretching on over 12 minutes, buchla market unveils the symbiotic beauty born when these 2 creative energies collided in the studio: barac’s signature tension building percussion as the perfect high contrast background for lyonel’s buchla electronic symphonia pieces. flipping the record we find pavane, the uptempo version of this collaboration: wind like hisses lost in the crisp techno patterns, broken only by outworldly analog reverbs. moment 004 is a bridge between don buchlas electronic visions, started over 50 years ago and what electronic music has transformed into in our times.
vinyl only release, 180gr pressing
barac returns to cluj’s midi records, this time with a whole release at his disposal. seen and unseen is an unsung rite of passage, marking the moment of stepping out of his confort zone, from the deep waters of house music with a gentle touch of nostalgia, to reveal a tiny bit of his techno subconscious. both tracks are slow cooked under baracs signature jagged groove, balancing the energy between both ends of the frequency spectre like a shaman guiding the crowd from light to darkness and back on every single loop.
fresh, genre bending interpretations from barac (romania) and dbridge (uk). these two inspiring producers provide their modern touch to the contemporary dancefloor continuum: dbridge offers an up-to-date hybrid that straddles the line between techno and breakbeat, while baracs extended mix is a deep and hypnotic journey through space. dbridge represents a milestone when it comes to uk dance music. being part of the legendary drum and bass group bad company in the late 90s, running his extensive label exit records, and regularly releasing on boddikas nonplus, metalheadz, as well as r&s, he has gained an enviable reputation as a specialist with a modern take on techno and breakbeat variations.

the first installment of kusi records comes from david nicolas, a very promising dj and producer from mannheim - germany. for the remix we have none other than barac. written & produced by david nicolas. additional remix by barac.
keeping the momentum going seems fairly easy for barac as he unveils the long awaited second ep on his moment imprint. last years have seen barac evolve in a very lucrative way, yet only his best productions seem to be making their way top. it is clearly the case for this second ep which features two of his solo masterpieces. moment of clarity is electronic poetry at its best. barac delivers the proverbial summer sunrise directly into your speakers and ultimately into your heart. this track is meant to never be forgotten. without changing the soundscape too much barac has a slightly different approach on side b. things get a little more serious with sun & following being driven by a catchy bass and a haunting atmosphere. this tune is as bomb in the night as the other one is in the daylight.
for pressure traxx011, we are really pleased to welcome one of our favourite artists to the label. barac first caught our attention as a member of the romanian supergroup noi doi, but he decided to go solo to perfect his vision of the finest electronic music. having already released on some of the coolest record labels and with an ever presence in the record bags of your favourite dj s. it is with much anticipation that we present barac and his first ep on pressure traxx. his verniana ep is due to be released in april 2015 in a record shop near you!
last few years have seen barac capturing the very soul of the romanian underground in a very productive yet very unreleased manner. few carefully selected tracks have been released while others are probably kept for the right moment. with his album on metereze running hot and a new label under his command barac is for sure the man of the hour. better yet, the man of the moment. for the first instalment of his new moment imprint he teams up with friend and fellow producer vincent iulian. these two go way back and they have a lot of history together. music wise they share the same passion for driving mysterious tech grooves and theory ep is all about that. in form is groovy and dark with a haunting synth accompanied by subtle xylophones. on the other side we take a dive in the atmospheric breaks grooves of in colour. uplifting and mysterious with the right amount of balls to keep you going.
odd music are back with the photosynthesize ep. odd004 is a further exploration into the deep rooted house cuts we know and love. this time there are two tracks from odd themselves, and two from bucharest based producer barac. four tracks of rattling, rolling percussion packed into a gorgeous gate-fold double pack!
currently it s time for some debuts on session deluxe. this time we present f.sonik and andrew technique. two guys like brothers, real soul mates. both are living in slovenia. close to the adreatic sea in koper. especially f.sonik is well known for his last release on mbf. there he made a great remix for kaiserdisco s aguja. but of course, also as f.sonik & andrew technique they are rising up. they made a remix for the slovenian techno-godfather umek. furthermore the guys had releases on monique musique or viva music. their first session deluxe release is coming with two stunning tech-house bombs. baracca and self sacrifice are very groovy and drifting stuff. the title track baracca is a bit more percussive, self sacrifice runs a bit more straight on. but both tracks are definitely made for the big dance floors. you can imagine a screaming crowd and uplifting hands when you hear the tracks. they made no compromises. 100% club music at it s best.

oliver schories is neither a friend of dogmas nor an antagonist of reflection. he winks affectionately to his musical past with his fourth album, to at the same time bethink himself of his musical core. accordingly profound and day-dreamfully rests relatively definitely in itself, without having any demand to be danceable. schories has allowed to let himself go and to listen into himself. in twelve tracks he tells about his experiences and allows a very deep view. who listens to music with the heart will understand what his ensouled basslines and oceans of melodies are telling. he came down to rest solid as a rock and knows where he belongs to. and apparently he feels relatively well over there. how sweet, that he lets us listen so closely.
