the next one is signed by one of my contemporary idols. his zero-f*cks-giving attitude and his aim to move forward make ascion the perfect artist to keep telling this story which two years ago was started to write. it could have been nineteen ninety two or today. it could be acid, techno-trance or even ardcore (you know the score). echoes from belgian new beat and uk’s intelligent dance music resound all along it. call it how you want and no matter when or where. this rave instrument is going to fill many epic warehouse moments. there is no way to escape: welcome to your finest nightmare. - hector oaks, september mmxviii

channel#9 collects five tracks of free flowing techno from italy s ascion. a talent who has graced labels like 3th and repitch, this ep balances floor fervour with subtle warm washes and colder echoes.
its not often you hear a techno record produced by a total of five people. when it happens, it’s usually to mark a passage and make a statement. sometimes it is a matter of celebrating a rita of passage, a shift into maturity and the embodiment of a new skin. this is what repitch is doing with the fourth and final installment in their “features” series, reuniting all the crew for the the final blast of what’s been a long and massive barrage of heavy techno. this is the collaboration to end them all: repitch founders ascion, d. carbone and shapenoise have shared the studio with longtime allies and. together, they explore a common ground made of pounding metallic percussions, gutwrenching bass and thick, furious grooves, with each producer bringing his own peculiar contributions to the table. this last installment marks the end of a process that accompanied repitch throughout its whole existence, thus enhancing the beginning of a new chapter in the label’s creative output.
ascion’s new solitary adventure on 3th records is the five tracks ep -public head-. imprinted in a folder that is designed by the producer himself, it starts with the electro-ish journey of “landescape” continuing towards the atmospheric broken-beat techno “public head”. on the flip side, “acido rosso” is a banging track in the manner of late 80’s acid-house that creates a strong anticipation for a classic techno cut, “xlight”. the ep is closing with the dramatic sci-fi attitude of “carnival”.
after three years, ascion and d.carbone return with *substructures*, their most experimental release to date on their label 3th. the a-side of this record holds two droney offbeat tracks, *ram expedients* and *lo-fi fields*, combining a rare/abstract and genuine mix of middle-eastern electronics, cyberpunk and uk warehouse techno. the b-side contains the tracks that are responsible for the nomenclature of this release: *substructures one/two*. being more oriented to genres such as idm and rave techno, they are characterized by powerful beats and cutting edge ambients and vocals. both tracks have been recorded during one of their live performances in london 2013.
zenith positions is a 4 track collaboration between modularz label owner developer and italian producer and repitch label owner ascion. the two producers worked apart in their studios with a similar concept and idea to create a special ep fusing together vintage synthesizers, retro futuristic ideas and funk influenced rhythms with a modern feel. the ep as gained some strong support from all the major dj talents worldwide.
ascion makes his incursion on black sun records: side a starts with more rythmatic, 90s flavoured pulsing techno with a bit of psychedelic acid taste while side b is dedicated to two beautifully crafted mesmerizing hypnotic patterns

features series start from here, the first of all, open repitch. the rebirth of the well-known fusion ascion and d. carbone. a unique sound suitable for the club and listening. irradial is a industrial-hybrid. walker smells like oldschool but totally redesigned. glare is an endless trip. mike parker version of walker takes you over, hypnotic. the name features come from the surrealistic artworks that will accompany us throughout the series. these mix the physical traits of the artists face with others, a face that looks like a distorted view of someone in our thoughts with features not well defined. to collect.

played and supported by chris liebing, luke slater, speedy j, tommy four seven, audio injection, drumcell, dvs1, norman nodge, technasia, shifted, bcr boys, samuel l session and more.
we meet a new project, cool, and damn techno. design concept and sounds that rather than being projected towards europe, appear to come from europe, more precisely from somewhere dark and cold in the north of the continent. but no! the minds that conceived the project are all italian and lie along a line connecting cities like palermo and naples, at least for the moment. because as you might expect from the country s brain drain ... the releases, starting with the first (which will appear in the catalog as 000), will be all vinyl.

spectrum recordings returns after the summer months with a fantastic deep dark two tracker to take us into those shorter nights of the year from italian duo ascion & davide carbone. the a side >shaved< is a stripped down dubby groover, with eerie vocal stabs and spacey edits. this has a seriously tripped out vibe, which is perfect for the after hours, but still with more then enough punch to work at peak time, with some layered percussion or effects. the flip side >spectral town< is a minimal funky track, superbly produced and once again perfect for the after hours. a very cool and classy record from a label stamping its mark on the scene, and still only in its first year of releasing music. look out for future releases from ramon tapia, gui boratto and alan fitzpatrick. big things to come!
the new york producer and dj, alexi delano, can not miss this excellent template. in his remix of the mentioned track he whispers it the required dryness in, and so it becomes afterhour-compatible ... and it continues to roll… brian sanhaji and his interpretation of this symbiosis: the use of his characteristic style of the born frankfurte in his remix gives the all-rounder track the old well-known gloomy and beloved hardness, but does not loses the melodic nature out of sight. the whole thing will become a new symbiosis ... and it continues to roll ...

dys functional electronic music is a compilation release from repitch recordings, celebrating the label’s first five years. its ambivalent title aims to represent the sonic behaviour of its content, often deviating from norms or distancing itself from common club functionalism. for this release, the 3 repitch masterminds ascion, d. carbone and shapednoise are joined by a selection of the artists who contributed shaping the repitch sound throughout the years, along with guests that inspired them in this adventure. during the past 5 years the main focus of the label was to set up a platform for experimentations across the dancefloor canon, establishing a standout musical identity. a spirit that resonates within each artist’s personal approach: from ascion’s dark breakbeats to the exaltics and and’s acid frontalism, shapednoise’s brooding noise, sote’s fractured rave, d. carbone and gaja’s intrusions into melody, pinch and the zenker brothers’ dub-infused atmospherics, skudge’s love of gloom and nuel’s idm-ish minimalism
blaring and unnerving, yyyy s intention of mortal gets revisited with a remix package featuring lucy, varg, ascion and yyyy themselves, resulting in a barrage of arpeggiated behaviour and regimented soundscapes. a force pushing forward creativity with on-point refinement, lucy immediately veers in with his visceral power of sound. an avalanche of intricate and experimental arrangement soon meets a series of astute percussion and typical foreboding energy, retaining a certain texture-over-beat throughout. yyyy s depth of music imagination & influence is heard in this highly charged, awestricken ensemble for their rework of intention of mortal . unfolding a mixture of fear and complication, this track keeps you thinking as well as moving. an almost endless supply of plucked synth rhythm keeps the chaos taut and throughout. ascion s remix of stone relief of gods faces credits the release with clean kicks, industrial clanks and atmospheric keys. this no-nonsense approach to production is not to be underestimated, a dream-state sequence of induced electronic abstraction. the first and most immediate observation of b2 is vargs take on reach for forgiveness - a menacing, pin-sharp account of the visceral power of techno, dialling in to both tense and euphoric. the ambiguity of each track lends itself to its success, meticulous in detail and curated with passion. a release that divulges the mysterious sonic world and deviates from the expected.
