The original speech was written by Raul in 2017 and recorded in a semi abandoned building in Berlin in 2018, percussion comes from a custom built Sonic Potions drum machine and the lead arpeggio from a modular DIY rack.

Cyan85 unveil his new electronic avant-garde album titled 'Lucid Intervals' on VOITAX.

4:35 PM

Hailing from the rough depths of Eastern Germany, meet Cyan85, an artist who brings a diverse sound to the thriving electro scene that drifts effortlessly from soulful and warm sun-drenched anthems, right through to in-the-red, robotic slammers.

A year has passed since Cyan85 first graced the VOITAX records catalogue with his successful summer debut EP - 'Bay Of Sampieri'. His dreamy pads, avant-garde take on retro arpeggios and slamming 808 beats have been continuously conquering our ears ever since, making him a
young talent to watch within the electro circuit. 

He now returns to the imprint with his very first album, titled 'Lucid Intervals', demonstrating his knack for crafting ambitious pieces to establish himself as a respected producer. 

The LP aims to explore a variety of dystopian atmospheres and energies throughout nine infectious and carefully crafted tracks that build on electro’s rich heritage without failing to infuse it with Cyan85’s very own remarkable, dreamy electronic signature.



Tracks description. 

'Low Frequency Phantasy' opens up shop with an ode to classic electro. A sturdy broken beat anthem, loaded with dreamy pads, a fierce hook and sleek vox. Sharp, saturated, straight four-to-the-floor rhythms and an aggressive arpeggio riff drives things into a more energetic direction which makes 'Elektro 0ffens1ve' a surefire dance floor weapon.

The aquatic journey continues to unfold with 'Contamination Ph0nk'. Funky arpeggios propel the track forward, while the haunting melodies guide the heavy low-end to mysterious corners of what electro has to offer.

'Data Lag' introduces some dub to the party. Conventional electro grooves, stomach curdling subs and a phased out top end. Electro minimalism at its finest.

The flip side reaches for a more emotional approach. 'Time Elapsed' serves up a nice journey with its beautifully crafted pads, soothing melodies and a powerful bass-line as it honours its given name and will stay forever in our head with its timeless elements.

In 'Early Defects' Cyan85 channels his inner Dopplereffekt. Hypnotism served with a side of dark, modulated pads and a sawing bassline that conjures some thrilling atmospheres.

'Strangelet Research Lab' is a down tempo effort which utilises melancholy pads, downbeat breaks and vocoder magic, to create a very introverted, paranoid journey.

'Aquasma' lightens up the energy before the journey comes closer to its end. Funky, walking basslines provide the foundations for an exploration into the unknown as the evolving melodies cement this track into timelessness.

'Hylia Echoes' closes this powerful album with a short and beautiful number. An essence of grime is brought to the table via the bass stabs only to be eased into infinity as the track closes its doors as mysteriously as it opens.

This album bring avant-garde electro music at its fines, you need to listen to this magnificent piece of production. 

VOITAX will release 'Lucid Intervals' on Vinyl 12” + Digital on July 27th, 2020. Pre-order: Bandcamp

Jokasti reveal new fabulous techno 10-track LP titled 'Silver Lining' on Prodigal Son.

3:43 PM

Let's meet Jokasti,  a fantastic producer from Kalamata, Greece. She started off as a vocalist and soon developed an interest in drum machines and synthesizers. Also she is one half of Jokasti & Nek with plenty vinyl releases on many respected techno labels such as MORD, Prodigal Son, KRLF, Green Fetish Records, Mindtrip, to name a few.

Now, she presents her new 'Silver Lining LP' on London label Prodigal Son. The release comes with 10 new original tracks that represent Jokasti's modern view of techno, with sounds you can't even imagine, sinister vocals, and of course, heavy rhythms with smooth hypnotic melodies. You have to listen to it. 

Jokasti says: "Many hours, days, months, years add up to this moment where I am happy to share this album. A collection of tracks that range from peak time dance floor numbers to more experimental sounds and everything in between, with a strong focus on vocals"

This LP is her first foray as a solo artist, and a debut that shows a grasp of hardware and her own vocal talents that make this record one to watch this year. The breadth of what is on offer in this LP shows the skills of an artist who can make true use of the Album format. From peak time killers to experimental mind benders there is a journey at the heart of this record.

The vocal lead Techno sound offers up some real moments, from heads down Berghain to more melodic riffs and expertly wrought synthwork that will drive a dance floor crazy, if you let it.

Prodigal Son will release 'Silver Lining' on July 27th 2020.

1605 announce new instalment 'Desiderati 4.3' featuring Umek, Dok & Martin, Julien Earle and a collaboration between Uto Karem & Gaston Zani.

6:26 PM


Nothing better than follow a phantastic series of mixed artist releases when it comes to straight techno and a good label like UMEK’s 1605, that announced the third volume of its Desiderati series, and this new one features the label boss himself alongside Dok&Martin, Julien Earle and a collaboration between Uto Karem & Gaston Zani.

Read something about previous EPs 'Desiderati 4.1' & 'Desiderati 4.2'. 1605 will release 'Desiderati 4.3' digitally on July 24, 2020.

Tracks description.

Following a string of Beatport No.1 selling tracks, UMEK’s new track “Distinct Operator” follows his winning formula blending a thundering kick drum with breath-taking synth lines. Adding operatic vocals in the breakdown, this unique cut is perhaps the first-time opera and techno have been merged with such stunning and emotional results.

Not to be out outshone, Uto Karem & Gaston Zani also bring their 'A' game with "Mind Capture" having each individually featured on labels such as Intec, Set About, SCI+TEC and Tronic. The guys also have a collaboration forthcoming on Alan Fitzpatrick’s We Are The Brave, and this dark and pulsating cut is in a similarly intense style.

Dok&Martin contribute to this EP fresh from the success of their track “Destroyer” which recently spent a long period inside Beatport’s Top 10 Techno Chart. Destroyer was released on Markantonio’s AnalyticTrail, but the guys have also featured on other imprints including Spartaque's Codex Recordings and and Spektre's Respekt Recordings. The new track “Isolation” is another explosive cut with twisted hypnotics and ominous atmosphere.

Julien Earle provides the last track, and is back on 1605 after previously featuring on the first Desiderati release. He has also contributed to Ramon Tapia's Say What? and Steve Mulder's Orange Recordings. His track “T4T9” has an uplifting energy shrouded in a shadowy aesthetic making it a perfect techno track for peak time plays.

Holldën releases new outstanding EP titled ''Moonscope' on DEAD CERT.

4:56 PM


If you're seeking for a good stash of dark and hypnotic powerful techno music, stay tuned on what's new on DEAD CERT. Records, a label linked to the well known website deathtechno.com ran by Jack! Who? in the UK. A diverse palette that has seen previous releases from artists including Audio Injection / Truncate, Paul Mac, TWR72, Echoplex, and Petter B to name but a few.

Now, the turn is to Miguel Duarte aka Holldën, who makes his debut release for the label, with some authority, after having some previous successful releases on the likes of Affekt, Labrynth, Decoy, Coincidence and Out-er. 

His new EP, titled 'Moonscope' features 4 outstanding new tracks, that are going to be release by DEAD CERT. Records digitally on July 13, 2020.

Holldën Says: "This EP caps months of intense studio work, focusing on unique analog loops and concentrated techno structures, clearly opening a new phase in my songwriting".





Tracks description. 

First track is "Super Moon", a track in which Holldën wastes no time showing his production prowess from huge warping hooks as it spirals into the depths of abstract sounds wrapped up in ferocious funk.

The second entry is "Harvest Moon" with a spiky, analogue melody bursting in energy and feeling, sounding like a brewing thunderstorm ready to shock the dance floor.

Third up is "Blood Moon" a brooding, chugging juggernaut of suspense and functionality. Throw in a quirky break of haunting drones and it really captivates the mind.

Closing with "Blue Moon" and showing his diversity, this is a slice of more soulful techno focusing on emotion and dreamy chords and spacey atmospherics.

Amelie Lens reveals new hard-hitting EP 'Higher' with FJAAK remix.

5:32 PM

Today's special is the announcement that Belgium techno powerhouse Amelie Lens returns with her third release titled 'Higher' on her celebrated imprint LENSKE. 

Hot on the heels of an explosive mix CD on fabric last November, her four-hour Essential Mix on BBC Radio 1 in April (the longest one since 1997) as well as a hit lockdown livestream, she now delivers a hard-hitting 3-track EP featuring her usual propensity for dark sounds and haunting vocals. Due to the current circumstances, she has unfortunately had to put on hold a summer full of festival appearances at the likes of Timewarp, Awakenings, Primavera Sound, Junction 2, Kappa Future, Sonus, and an extended tour with her Exhale curated parties with her own stage at Tomorrowland and OFFSonar, to name a few. 



'Higher' showcases Lens’ sound and energy while we wait to dance together again.

On the A side we have the euphoric title track, in which melodic synth work and familiar vocal inflections echo into the far reaches of a cosmic dance floor. Next is ‘L’Obscurite’, which shocks with an hypnotic pulse, combining an appetite for the mystifying with sonic bleeps and booms. On the B side features an emotive sub-bass rework of ‘Higher’ by Berlin’s techno boyband FJAAK, swindling a multi-layered rave version. For the hungry ravers, this will be a fiery treat for the ears.

LENSKE Records will release 'Higher EP' digitally and on Vinyl on August 21st, 2020

4:20 PM

Tiga and Hudson Mohawke have unveiled a new collaborative project, together they presented their new track, titled 'Love Minus Zero', debuted this evening (July 6, 2020) on BBC Radio 1. 

Tiga says: "I like the idea of bizarre-semi random things getting thrown together," he adds. "That's already part of how me and HudMo work. I bring things and he brings things, and those things normally not might mix. There's an odd-couple aspect about us, but that's the best part of it."

Cri Du Coeur is back with a new 2-part vinyl release ‘Erickson’ & ‘Erickson on Acid’ having a solely French lineup for the remixes.

3:52 PM


Time to engage with modern techno at its finest. Belgian techno wizard Cri Du Coeur is back with a new 2-part vinyl release on his label Arkham Audio titled ‘Erickson’ & ‘Erickson on Acid’, to be released simultaneously in digital format and vinyl on the 24th July, 2020. 

In his new release, Cri Du Coeur is showing his francophile roots by having a solely French lineup for the remixes, definitely a selection to enjoy featuring Electric Rescue, [wex 10], Trunkline, Roman Poncet, Umwelt & Zadig

Following the recent release of his EPs ‘Diaphragm’ and ‘Warning’, and now bringing us the inebriating ‘Erickson’ & ‘Erickson on Acid’, Cri Du Coeur has established that his new alias and freshly-founded but tenacious Arkham Audio label are a force to be reckoned with.

The entrancing yet adrenalizing sound that he has adopted shows that his approach to industrial electronic music knows no boundaries or compromises.

Tracks description. 


The first part of this release features the original mix of ‘Erickson’ by Cri Du Coeur and remixes of the track by Electric Rescue, [ Wex 10 ], and Trunkline. The second part ‘Erickson on Acid’ puts a squelching acid twist on things and features remixes by Roman Poncet, Umwelt, and Zadig.

The original mix of ‘Erickson’ leads with a strong beat and a mixture of industrial sounds that makes for a sublime dark dancefloor track. Electric Rescue follows on with a remix that engages the listener with a terrorising yet intoxicating heavy base- line. Next up is [ Wex 10 ] who enchants us with a bouncy laserbeam rhythm and muffled looping vocals.

Last but not least on the ‘Erickson’ lineup is Trunkline’s remix which delivers an addictive hazy melody and a deep and dirty mechanical synth horn.

Cri Du Coeur plays with tensions in ‘Erickson (on Acid)’, putting the listener into a state of hypnosis with squelching sounds that give the song a raunchy character. We are implored to dance as Roman Poncet’s remix bears layers of lively percussion beats with twangy synth melodies. The mood intensifies once more as Umwelt’s remix features a dark and fuzzy baseline that contrasts with a screeching siren sound creating an ultimate thrilling experience for the listener. Zadig closes off this immense concoction of remixes with a relentless distorted base and scintillating machinelike background noises.

Cri Du Coeur has outdone himself by bringing together such a well-suited selection of artists to create a visceral and magnetizing collection of tracks that showcases his competence in making industrial techno.

Arkham Audio will release both 'Erickson' & 'Erickson on Acid' simultaneously in digital formats and on vinyl on the 24th July, 2020.
