to differentiate between his solo dance-oriented work to the darker tones, kaczmarek aka paul ritch launched his new album titled iiiiiiiiiiiiii on october 30th on his fresh imprint kczmrk. kczmrk is definitely a more personal project for paul, helping him define a newly found darker and more genuine taste to produce electronic music, which would even the most demanding audience left surprised. kaczmareks immersive sounds on his debut album were highly supported by respected artists of the underground scene such as sterac, vril, lewis fautzi, vsk and djedjotronic, who will contribute reworks that will come out in a remix ep in february 2018. the 12inch is gently introduced with a sophisticated remix of iiiii by techno pioneer sterac aka steve rachmad, continuing with vril’s remix of iiiiiiiiii who delivers beautiful ambient tones in a euphoric travel of sound. the b side begins with emerging talent lewis fautzi and his iiiis remix in a deep and hypnotic cut, followed by the curtesy of vsk and djedjotronics remixes of iiiiiiiii. vsk sticks to the dark and hard forms of techno with glimmer of deeper and industrial sounds while djedjotronic enrich kaczmareks dark techno tones with some futuristic idm.

soma welcome the debut album from the ever-growing roster of youthful talent as lewis fautzi drops the gare album, named in homage to the gare club, porto, where lewis made his discovery of techno. a bold 4 track single debut gave rise to the album process midway through 2013 and under the careful supervision of soma, lewis has provided a definitive peak in his sound cultivated on the back of years of studio work. a collection of deep, dark and twisted techno awaits heralding a coming of age for the portuguese native.
elocution, the third figure ep from portuguese producer lewis fautzi, again displays a high defree of versatility but still comes cleary cut for the club. employing a rich yet spacious sound design, fautzi creates cinematic scapes that are at once both brimming with the hums of colossal interstellar machinery yet at the same time leave enough room for a range of carefully sculpted elements to do their work. whether it be the twisted acid arpeggio on opener shizophrenia, the imposing drones underscoring the mighty mirror or the propulsive percussion of centerpiece 37b. testament to fautzis talent of engaging arrangement, never do the tracks here feel hurried nor do they become stagnant - but rather given just the right time to ripe into their full captivating potential. no matter if one is to approach this records as already an avid lover of lewis fautzis work or comes to it simply looking for fresh takes on the classic formula, this enthralling ep certainly will satisfy everyones needs.

now a regular member of the figure roster, young portugese talent lewis fautzi resurfaces again, fresh off the back of an inspired full-length debut for soma records. continuing with his own take on the darker, trippier end of the techno spectrum, we re treated to 4 new tracks, beautifully sequenced and alive with energy. from the depths of fautzi s studio, >signal of the light< emerges with its deep resonant acid tones and broken beats. setting the mood, fautzi then unlocks the monster inside with three club-designed cuts that rattle, fizz, gyrate and swell with precision intensity. a name to keep an eye on without a doubt, its no surprise this young man s vision of modern techno is finding its way into dj s sets far and wide.
up and coming portuguese producer lewis fautzi is quickly becoming a name to look out for in techno. championed by the likes of jeff mills and slam, fautzis hypnotic, tracky sound is much in demand. in may 2014 figure label founder len faki opened his boiler room berlin set with a new lewis fautzi production, the beatless intro vibes of >diagonal<, and thus a new ep was born on figure.
