we are very happy to announce the 13th release of cabrera with two special remixes from the label boss, j.c., “vertigo” record that came out in the summer of 2017. side a comes with a special shed rework. rene is a huge influence for us and we are thrilled to have him on our catalogue. keeping the essence of the original, he made a proper raw dub techno banger. on the flip side, kastil, already part of the family, took “nyame” in a whole other level and made a fresh blend of fierce techno.
for the 12th installment of jose cabrera’s self-titled imprint, mario castillo appears under his long running kastil moniker to deliver a four track ep of mechanical dance floor sounds. with anemic lust, the resident of vitoria-gasteiz, comes up with a worthy addition to his rapidly growing discography. after a period of diy work through his own label stale, castillo returns to the imprint where he last released his collaboration album with j.c. in 2017.
“veil of flames” is the second solo ep by label head kastil in 2017 after the successful “the sadistic abbess” earlier this year.
threading through the corn fields, wearing nothing but a cotton scarf, her body is like an abstract painting. he who beholds her with unpure sentiments, sees not what she is made of.
her fierce complexion radiates briefly before she speeds up her motions. out of breath she arrives at the altar of affection. she won’t sacrifice her decency for a chance to be with god.
j.c. aka jose cabrera and kastil collaborate and come with the exciting results. a fresh blend of fierce techno, ambience, industrial, noise and found sounds recordings. a full length captivating album that pushes and pulls you through an edgy and engaging world of sound.
the second part of the collection by perc, furfriend, scalameriya, blush response, vsk, kastil, yaporigami & oleka that showcases exclusive tracks in variety of techno styles compiled to form a perfect unit.
label owner kastil comes up with the fourth 12” in the stale series. after imaginative releases by irazu, deapmash together with a string of underground cassette releases it’s finally time for the man in charge to step back up with a very versatile and well balanced outing called “the sadistic abbess”.
in the ever continuing stream of soul notes releases. labelowner kastil is pleased to announce the new stale outfit. stale by soul notes will purvey jagged sounds throughout the more adventurous sides of techno.
the ethos of m.i.l has always been to play the role of adventurer, to push forward the sounds that veer away from the main label music is love and m2222 pushes the envelope to the furthest boundary so far. kastil steps up for the 5th release on the vinyl only label with a divine techno ep. etrek kicks off the proceedings with a kick drum solid enough to shake the bones of anyone in 100 meters of it. with its eerie analogue blips and noises the atmosphere this track emits is so intriguing you yearn for all its beautifully produced twists and turns. the main riff played against the surging drum section will make this track a timeless tool for techno & house djs alike.
the revival of symbolism continues with j.c. & kastil. j.c. aka jose cabera is otherwise known as spanish house producer kasper as well as cropping up on fred p s boards imprint as j.c. in 2014 while kastil is widely recognised for his output and stewardship of soul notes
one would never think of mystic rituals when thinking of basque county. yet, this might be a premature thought. naturally, the isle of haiti or the american deep south come to mind when thinking of these tribal traditions.
label-owner kastil continues the soul notes imprint with a release that represents the self-reivention process that he is currently experiencing. emphasizing on advanced synthesis and a more atmospheric approach to his sound, the basque country native takes one on an intergalactic journey through his current mindset.
in recent times soul notes tilted a little towards more groove driven, distortion ladenmachine funk. snx001 is the missing release out of the snx series thus far. label head honcho kastil joins up with cologne based adryiano, who is quickly becoming one of the labels favorite household names. the signature snx sounds is developing into a dark psych-oriented club sound which this ep represents as never before. the opening track *snakes and holes* is pure percussive machinery with the heaviest overdriven kickdrums you will ever hear. on the a2, adryiano sets the mood with a low swinging bass and some eardrum deafening kicks which progresses into the b1 which is perced out to the max with some 303 bassline drama and distortion to top that off. for the b2 track, head honcho kastil shows off some lo-fi drum action on controversy.

we present you the newly born imprint outernational recordings. the kick off for this unique vinyl series is by basque county native kastil who sets the right tone with three wonderful disco edits at a mid-tempo / slomo pace. since uploading these tracks to his soundcloud page, the feedback has been enormous. side a contains the long, slow and loopy back to philadelphia, where kastil cleverly plays with the vocals and delay and creates a highly tense build up. theres no doubt that some large players in the very popular disco edit culture will play this one out. on the b1 side you find the track smd. a track which received great feedback by some key figures on soundcloud. this track is the ultimate pre-lude for the summer. fortunately, this is being released just early enough to enjoy this during the european and northern american summer. with again beautiful vocals floating through the track, this track definitely reminds one of a hot day in the local park. the b2 track is called rolls royce. perfect as the last track of this release since its a long edit which ends with a very atmospheric piano solo that keeps on floating through the last few minutes of the track. all and all, these edits will definitely make some heads turn after the date of release. supported by: cosmic boogie, dicky trisco, the legendary 1979 orchestra, sleazy beats recordings, ben la desh, 78 edits, osvaldo wilson, mannmademusic, gitchell moore
