Valere Aude, the debut album from Romans, a collaborative project between New York techno producer Gunnar Haslam and Vienna-based acid evangelist Johannes Auvinen (aka Tin Man). Featuring 12 tracks of hallucinogenic, psychedelic techno, Valere Aude is an acid-etched trip to the outer reaches of the mind. The finished product is a steamy, moody record, experimenting with atmospheres, tempos, and sounds, designed for blistering hot days and cold, rainy nights. We couldn’t be more excited to share it with you.
Device Control is Jake Reif’s new solo production outlet which draws equally from the pools of early Wax Trax and Medusa’s with the hybrid pit jack of early Farris or Rush. Machine made yet with a soul, all four cuts are for the true hyper jackers on the floor, tested and recomended. Born in New York and spending his formative years in the mid-West, Jake Reif has served time amongst some of the best, producing alongside both Mystic Bill as well as Reade Truth; releasing well recieved 12s on Rong Music and a break out remix on Snuff Trax in recent years. Back in the day you could catch Jake clocking hours working at Sonic Groove Records among a motley crew of heavy hitters whilst honing his talents.
Luciano Lamanna & Cosimo Damiano, known together as Assalti Industriali, release a split EP on Love Blast. Four tracks of heavy acid techno, an assault to the dancefloor on 4/4 to put your head into the speakers.
This is the second release from London producer/DJ and Apron Regular Shamos. “Games and Dreams” is the the follow on from his debut record “Road Works Part 1”, carrying the same rawness, but with a bit more wisdom.
