VA – Momentum: 10 Years Of Token [TOKEN78LP]

Over the last 10 years Token Records has grown steadily, both in size and stylistic breadth. The aptly-titled Momentum comes as a celebration of the close-knit family of artists amassed throughout the label’s running. The record is a fitting collaborative project, with every track on the album produced by two longstanding and well-respected artists from the label’s roster and especially commissioned for the release. This type of collaboration is intended to showcase the specific sound of the label, developed through 10 years of careful curation, as well as bringing out the individual identities of the artists involved.

Binny – Nycthémère EP [CLFTREC006]

Inspired by the 90s Detroit scene, UK-based producer Binny delivers two weapons here, full of Millsian reminiscences, but still away from the hiss and swooshes. Both Destroyer & A Function Of Time stay to the essential elements, combinating hardness and soul masterfully. On the B side, Fundamental Interaction’s remix as well as Antigone’s reconstruction surprises with an unexpected u-turn. Frantic techno tracks.

Birth Of Frequency ‎– Remind EP [CRF004]

Construct Re-Form present a young Parisian artist : Birth of Frequency. On the A side, ‘Remind’ is serious Techno with heavy 909 drums and a repetitive and hypnotic synth, in the tradition of the purest minimalistic electronic music. On the B side, ‘Surround the silence’ offers a more deep feeling, between House and Techno, the perfect balance of those two generic styles. For the ending, Antigone give his own vision of “Surround the silence” with this brilliant remix, he tells us another part of the story with metalic and sharp sounds and a wintry atmosphere.
