secretive frenchman ersatz olfolks follows fine appearances on conforce’s transcendent records and georgian imprint bassiani with an ep of clinical techno aberrations for low-key bristol label tutamen.
transcendent records is proud to present a new immersive cinematic techno release by a french producer who goes under the name of ersatz olfolks. some might already know him from previous releases on singular records and cheap. for a producer with only two records behind him we think he already has a bright voice within the overcrowded musical techno landscape. heliopolis is the city of the sun and was the theological center of the greatest sun temple of pharaonic times. the sunrays bring brightness but we also find ourselves in the darkest ominous shades of an eclipse. we were instantly captivated by his contra dictionary sound that is filled with subtle harmonic distortions and sophisticated melodic and evolving modular patterns. heliopolis ep is a careful selection of works recorded during live sessions. this is our definition of techno! pressing of 300 copies in special silver sleeve.
the fourth release of bassiani was dedicated to various artists. starting from cassegrains track departure seven. we encounter a completely new and unfamiliar artist ersatz olfolks with his track straight road. hector oaks strikes with old school atmosphere by move on circles. walk on lines. while thomas hessler competes the circle with melancholic vibe by his track memories.
we live in the time when rave is the word that is only used when people want to describe a fierce party or to describe colors. styles and some types of electronic music. basically. the word -rave- became sort of a metaphor. but back in the days. it was the name for the revolution. no less than that. warehouse memories was born to give a direction to that revolution. this is rave 001.
