The prolific Jason Letkiewicz returns to his Steve Summers alias for a suite of post-apocalyptic jack tracks. Across labels like L.I.E.S., Future Times, Echovolt, Nation and Clone, Letkiewicz spent the last decade exploring dimensional rifts between techno, house, noise, ambient and more. After occupying nearly as many cities as monikers he’s landed in Chicago and on local outpost Clear.
D’Marc Cantu’s second release on Drone is an introspective, emotive piece of electro. With it’s deep pads, ‘Omega Red’ provides the soundtrack to a trek through the snowy wastes, never letting up and calling through the night. In contrast, under his Rival alias Cantu delivers ‘Sustain’ a ferocious track with monotonous drum lines that slowly takes you into the night.
‘Artful Rifle’ is a new record label dedicated to ‘non-serious techno music’ founded by Berlin based producer Pablo Mateo. The first release “Tentlover” EP comes up with 4 atmospherical, psychedelic techno trips – paying an homage to Octavia E. Butlers ‘Xenogenesis’ trilogy.
Echovolt’s lost and found 10th release is finally out. A beautiful mosaic of six tracks produced by new and old friends hailing from six different parts of the world. From the no-reason unreleased Terekke’s “Sun Salutation” remix, the new Greek producer but old friend of us under the (for the time being) name “Old Man Talkin'”, the first hip hop jam ever released on the label by West Coast’s “Tlim Shug” to the mysterious one-off alias of Sydney’s “Indreamz”. However, this compilation could never be more complete without our new loves that are Australia’s Hugo Gerani (aka John Tanner) and Shea from overseas both of them to be seen in future solo releases!
Glueped is the collaborative alias of Mihai Mihalcea and Cristi Tudorache, better known as Teluric and Melodie. Already having released with their solo projects on some of the scenes most distinguished imprints, they have joined creative forces once again to put together an EP for Vade Mecum, an already familiar output for Teluric. The result will set you sailing in shifty winds – going from nostalgic to ecstatic, from mystery to comfort and warmth, without losing touch with the dancefloor.
