voiski embarks on the third expedition into the cosmic lands .a collection of singular and utopian ambient, electronica and techno tracks illustrated by spectacular picture of layla kerley and bruno compagnet. cosmic adventure is an honest portrayal without fabrication or pretense. too often electronic music is subjected to the damaging opinions of others and categorized in a movement or a trend, choking the freshness out of the sound. cosmic adventure provides a platform of creative energy, a unique platform for unique artists who search nothing except discovering new landscapes and inspiration.
keeping up a high rate and high quality of release, dan mela and dodi palese s what ever not label serves up a second ep of 2018, this time from the esteemed simone gatto with a special remix from voiski. italian gatto is now based in lecce, south italy, where he co-runs his out-er label, which since 2010 has become synonymous with house and techno that challenges the norm. his own productions find new life in the underground, roaming between labels like night vision, raw waxes and his own pregnant void. most recently he served up a two-part album, heaven inside your frequencies , which combined dark ambient, techno and abstract sound with his professional work as a researcher and came with a book that offered a theoretical and practical analysis of the use of sounds and frequencies. this new ep is another arresting affair that lays out gatto s unique and varied vision for club music across three very different tracks. it opens with no regrets , which pairs blissful ambient synths that lift you up into the skies with busy, bristling hi hats and gnarly bass. thumping drums drive the whole thing along, and the interplay between coarseness and serenity is truly original. frenchman, dekmantel and sheik n beik records man vioski then brings all his scintillating techno skills to the table for a remix. it journeys deep into a cosmic night sky, with sheet metal percussion peeling off the groove as an uplifting synth brings a subtle sense of euphoria to the mix.
first album from the french emotional techno producer, voiski presents a collection of tracks made on airplanes. a special edition including a photography book made of his analog tour pictures. 10 post-trance tracks made on airplanes with a track for each flight and comes along with a booklet showing a series of analog photography taken by voiski between two gigs. an album behind the scenes of the dj world.
this record collects many intimate things and singular ideas about voiski, it is also an excellent synthesis of his musical style, and how it is evolving towards a more and more unknown territory, where his -post-trance- idea collides classic detroit influences, 90 s techno (with that underworld cover obviously) and a very unique sonic identity he has developed playing his synths with a bright and powerful sound design, and rich arpeggios.
new york collective sheik ’n’ beik follow up a slew of lauded 12 inchs from japans keita sano, legowelt & xosar and their previous effort from hermans with the richly emotive return of voiski. with a back catalogue of considerable depth - one that’s touched the likes of l.i.e.s and delsin, dekmantel’s ‘ufo’ series - voiski’s latest offering carries with it a trademark degree of bite whilst remaining balanced with the sort of moody melodicism that fans both old and new will relish. ‘5th dolphin transmission’ kicks things off with a tense sequence tumbling through granular drums and a staggered, luminescent synth line. ‘let down disco’ then dims the lights slightly with soft, buoyant melodies and flickering high frequencies that round off a nicely varied release and another solid addition to the sheik n beik catalogue.
after the funky summer release ‘deep in’ by stephen brown, technorama records continues to promote diversity & quality music. they are back this time in the ‘electro game’ with this superb release by the french specialist dynarec.
sometimes you have artists that can electroshock you with a very good 12” and then after that they are not able to satisfy your expectations. dynarec is one of those who is capable to impress each and every time that he delivers a release. coming from france, dynarec improves on even the most advanced experimental electro as no one did before, giving it depth, awareness and knowledge, making it more rigid and linear. a journey into those post drexciya atmospheres which reach some of the highest moments in a new electro history ... romantic and complex, rich in detail and unlikely to be imitated or surpassed by others on the contemporary new electro scene.

we are glad to introduce “fareed” half part of the french duo “society of silence” for his first solo ep on a label. with the “phausis ep”, fareed offers an interesting balance between emotional melodies and organic textures, raw sonorities : the result is full of tension and very personal : another point of view on the techno. we choose three original tracks and ask to our friend voiski to work on a aerial and refreshing remix which sticks perfectly with the original project. enjoy …

the italian duo -the analogue cops- under their aliases ocp and voiski joins the family of the monkey bar. here with two very special tracks and in the first vinyl of a tribute series called moog series in honor to the legendary club from barcelona.
the ep is called spotlight diktat in reference to the feeling some djs have when they are on tour. a kind of dj melancholia generated by airplanes, dehumanized hotels, waiting hours in boring terminals, basically traveling alone. i made these tracks out of this mood. at first they sounds like the typical groovy dance tracks, but when the melody comes out, you immediately feel there is something wrong now the track is on and you still dance (of course its made for that) but you could almost cry to it too. so this is what happens when a dj or a producer has to do their job, but they aren t really in the mood for it. when the party comes, they just forget everything and make the show happen regardless. they have to bear the spotlight diktat and keep on entertaining people regardless of what they have in mind.
french producer voiski returns to l.i.e.s. with another 12 inch of his diverse and refreshing style of techno. spanning across the board we get epic dramatic builds, post shuffle headnodders and floor crushing sub-bass grooves over these three tracks. guaranteed to cause major damage wherever and whenever this record is played.
1 per customer a gem of the parisian underground electronic music world for those who know, voiski hits us with three tracks of high bpm techno which at points reminds us of early steve bicknell or oliver ho. the b-side hits hard with the epic from sea to sea a monstrously beautiful building track that does all the right things in the right places just when you want them to happen. a big release to say the least

vince watson & kirk degiorgio continue on suara s onslaught of great release this year, 2 legends of the british techno scene collaborate on this ep along with some quality remixes from lake people, marquis hawkes, and voiski.
tidy line-up including randomer, gilbr, voiski and tolouse low trax. tip! in terms of experimental, techno, very few come close to the impact that this uk producer has had on the scene. with a sound that is rarely classifiable, randomer’s dekmantel contribution is a staggered, minimally-twisted, dark, kind-of-two step, awesome thing. versatile records’ gilb’r has found himself an integral part of the dutch scene since moving to amsterdam, and brings forth his organic, percussive grooves that have helped define his music, and label to date. salon des amateurs’ tolouse low trax provides a seasoned session of amniotic, grizzled, hypnotic post-everything music, that is eerily discomforting and wonderfully pleasurable at the same time. and on the ep’s fourth track, parisian techno wizard, voiski adds layered organic, futuristic loops that work to stale the progress of time, and space.
for nearly a decade, raíz and subversive have distributed their vision of dance music on various labels including historia y violencia, electric deluxe, construct reform, droid recordings and their own imprint, vrv. three years into the vrv project, the label heads have decided it is time to expand the roster and showcase artists on a similar plane, producers they know can speak to the sound. the chosen interpreters on this release include dj hyperactive, santiago salazar and voiski.
basic soul unit returns with another deadly ep on dolly, further investigating the thin dividing line between techno and broken beats. a-side wallow is a menacing big room stormer with a delicate pad breakdown, with voiski providing an alternate more driving techno version of it with a splendid melodic twist midway through the track. radiate and joyride on the b both have bsus signature rhythmic ideas and fresh energy with radiate even going full-on broken rave! joyride is that upbeat funky techno nugget thats going to sit in your dj bag forever.

newcomer region takes no time to get his credentials across, and this debut ep is all you could possibly ask for from an artist making their way up the food chain. coming though on the young jaunt label, region dishes out some seriously magnificent dub techno lashings here, with the opener -subline- being something of rough gem, the remix comes from lies-associate voiski, and the frenchman strips the whole thing down to a deeper, murkier tone that we ve come to associate him to. -borders-, on the b-side, is a supremely deep and meditative house track with a touch of the shed in it, and main man basic soul unit drops his version of the tune, a broken beat assemblage with that same dubwise feel that wraps the groove of the original cut.
‘temporary insanity remixes’ is a 12” featuring the redefinitions of the two original productions of detroit veteran terrence dixon, turned upside down by three of the most groundbreaking electronic music artists as voiski, pangaea and cosmin trg, appearing alongside label head simone gatto. out022 operates as a modern take of old school sounds, an hybrid union of all melodic techno sub forms – these remixes keep the mental locked groove material of dixon’s tracks, adding emotionally irradiating patterns and each producer’s typical paths.
