nu era delivers another dose of deep-soulful house produced by marc mac. this detroit style 4 track ep is backed with genre-fused science, analogue machines woven together by chords, melodies and beats we ve come to expect from nu era, at times the string laden 4hero sound is synonymous throughout the four tracks and although synthetic still full of emotion. the vinyl release is a lovely transparent red and an animated label design is a nice bonus, limited to 300 copies.

children of tomorrow will celebrate soon its 10 years anniversary. the label was created by emmanuel ternois back in the day and being joined by arnaud le texier in 2011. since then they focused on techno producing amazing artists, to name few: terrence dixon, zadig, tensal, antigone, oscar mulero, jonas kopp, samuli kemppi etc... children of tomorrow is now presenting the first album from arnaud le texier. after almost 30 years dj-ing around the world and almost 20 years producing. signing many releases over the years and always busy delivering dance floor releases, it s been a long wait to finally get an album from arnaudon his first album we can feel that he wanted to tell a story and to express something deeper with his production experience. there is a different variety of techno that stretches from ambient / broken beat / hypnotic / raw techno along with subtles grooves, wondrous atmospheres & sonic textures. on a side the album opens with dusk, an ambient atmospheric mid-tempo track with sonic sounds that is a perfect intro.pattern 2 starts with drones and blip sounds and a broken beat groove follows with a pad that sounds like a voice coming from the space. the track ends with some modular click sounds that make the whole track clever. followed by the album title granular therapy, a deep techno track with modular bass line and melancholic pad. a perfect track to play in after or to warm up a party.the b side is more dedicated to the dance floor with black nympheas that is a proper dark modern techno with a grinding bass line and magic drones. a simple beat makes the track evolve in a nice way. blade pass frequency is 4/4 effective techno with a 909 kick, a syncope acid bass line and a pad that sends you to another dimension. it is a powerful track but with a sense of deepness and sensibility that arnaud can achieve sometimes. this side closes with binary sun dawn which is an ambient track with melody that has a jazz feeling mixed with dark atmospheres, sonic drones and water drops. the c side opens with mono driver, a minimal track with a little synth that stays until the end repetitively until it makes you travel and lose your mind. deep and dance floor at the same time.
alexis cabrera is a solidified ingredient of the argentinien house scene since years and at the latest after his releases on u.dig and momentz the fun records label head seems to be a huge inspiration for the european scene as well. his very own signature build by short modular chord sequences paired with high level mixed drum grooves, must not be missing in the salty nuts release- catalogue.
ho do ri remix included!
minuendo keep things interesting on this latest various artists 12-, primarily focusing on owen jay and brian james on the a side for two tracks of adventurous experimentation on the wild frontier of minimal house music. the wobbly synth running through -niko s groove- is a real head turner, while -imagery- nudges the grand tradition of dub house into a new pocket of ambience that draws you in immediately. there s a lovely, classic deep house joint from untitled called -seafood-, and then blue vulva & the electronic crooner completely flip the script on the b2 with rowdy acid burner -vulbitch bazaar-.

WE DONT NEED TURZI (PARALLAX OCTET REMIX)(HAND NUMBERED)
12" Vinyl D23.11.15
los massieras see themselves as legitimate psychedelic explorers sonically adventuring into dark territories and furry textures. their concrete, minimal electronics, trance inducing percussive sounds and mutant disco influences are drone infected, with slight dub inflections and sometimes even an unusual cold & poppy feel, if you care to consider the residents a pop band.
finally after 3 years season 1 comes to an end. the birth of concept that has led to the evolution of who we are today. we’ve had the pleasure of working with some incredibly talented artists that have been an inspiration to us helping us shape and form a part of our identity. that is because several reasons is not just about the music, it is about the experience, the exploration, the collaboration, the up times and the down times, the good times and the better times, for the journey… closing off the first season made no other sense than to seal it with a special collaboration from the owners of several reasons, dubit & mynude. an ep that that truly provokes and challenges boundaries of the stereotypical label of “music”. covering all aspects of ambient, atmospheric and experimental types of sounds, the release really an experiment of psychoacoustics.

its with great pride (and a certain sense of defiance!) that tom and i present you with the 200th freerange release. despite the best efforts of three bankrupt distributors, an arsonist (who set the sony warehouse ablaze back in 2012) and a volatile market, we retained the fire in our bellies, a stiff upper lip, and most importantly an unrelenting passion for electronic music, we soldiered on and here we are at freerange 200!
for our fourth release of the season we have a collaboration ep by dubit alongside the extremely talented dutch man, reggy van oers and remixes by the man who needs no introductions, giorgio gigli & label co-founders mynude
