maraton is a brand new label coming out of stockholm, sweden. the first release includes two original works by per hammar and maraton co-owner edvin wikner, produced in valvet studios in malmö during the winter of 2016. on the b-side you’ll find an interpretation by the magnificent ion ludwig.
this 200 copy, vinyl only release is the first on 10years, a brand new and celebratory project between two long time friends, per hammar & maya lourenço aka parallax deep. channeling their trippier and more hypnotic works, the label will start with a split, limited run 12inch that marks ten years of friendship and then promises to develop into a great outlet for floor facing house and techno. per hammar goes first with the irresistible the expedition for mrs. gustavsson, a deep and fluid house cut with lots of little imperfections, crackles and bubbles adding character to a slick and stripped back groove. atmospheric and warm, soul infused and heady, it cannot fail to get connoisseurs on their toes. ‘parallax deep’ then offers a similarly rubbery and deep roller in periscope. this one is more electronic and minimal and finds the artist orchestrating myriad synthetic sounds into a bubbling track that is subtly curious and full of late night freakiness. support by traumer, nima gorji, bella sarris, brett jacobs, io mulen, truncate, raresh etc
the swedish label is back with a three tracker valvet studios production, featuring per hammars sound of dusty dub house. dixies dubb is a straight forward and warm cut with a good amount of chamber-sounding ingredients. argys take on the track is a timeless piece of dubby, stripped and sparkling techno. just as obvious as it is venturous. as the last track on the flip, we find severnaja, that takes us on a mission over an icy surface. the travelling bassline and overheated drums in symbiosis with the melody brings the listener to uninhabited places.
the swedish label dirty hands strikes back with double force. this motor driven techno 12 is hard to hide from. labelboss per hammar says when patrick gave me this track, i played it in every set for the 3 months. when he later told me that he hasnt found a home for it, we said in choir ‘lets do a dirty hands release out of it!. and after that moment, all my previous plans for the label was deleted. with patricks ruthless original combined with per hammars jungle sounding edit on the flip, this release isnt anything but a key into the producer duos minds.
right after the success of his massive crude ep on adam beyer s famous drumcode imprint, patrick comes up with the titletrack dome - and boy what a follow-up it is! over ten minutes patrick keeps the tension high, teases us with the raw force of dome over just a few little kickdrum pauses until the track goes through the roof in on hell of a break! on the flip we have hot mess, another primetime weapon, and this one patrick produced together with per hammar, who made a name for himself with releases on great stuff, starlight and kant over the last year, but it was especially his track el salvador on mija rec. a few months ago that introduced per to a bigger audience, causing quite a stir on dancefloors worldwide!
played by dj madskillz, &me, saeed younan, brodinski, pig & dank, spektre, tiger stripes, wally lopez, kaiserdisco, mastiksoul, axwell, marco bailey, joseph capriati….. diverse but rocking as ever: munich disco tech vol. 6 with a fantastic remake of kissograms timeless if i had known this before from vincent thomas, a great techhouse floorfiller from slovenian no. 1 dj umek and his mate jay lumen and a banging technotrack from par hammar (malmö/sweden)..
the sixth release from solkyss is a real smorgasbord with influences from all over sweden. edvin wikner, head chef and local marathon dancer, serves us an original production accompanied by a collaboration with malmo-based per hammer. trauma tribe celebrates their shared love of extended morning sets—a passion ultimately manifested at emmabodafestivalen two years ago when they broke swedens record of the longest dj set to date, playing for 24 hours straight. the original kai saa comes with an outstanding remix from no other than arkajo.
mental overdrive, norwegian gran ol wizard of techno, owner of love od communications starts of with “clocked”, a colorful and moody track with a touch of grittyness. thomas urv, ploink label head and one of norwegian techno’s main protagonists, brings a signature raw high energy techno track “6.24 con dao”. per hammar, swedish producer and dj based in berlin, the captain behind dirty hands and 10years labels delivers a steady dubbed hypnotic house track “blank space”. thomas skjaerstad from trysil, norwegian winner of burn residency 2017 finishes the ep with a punchy, dark spaced out techno track titled “space x (sommeroya edit)”.
