Chino from Krakow is one of Poland’s most distinctive players when it comes to providing a good amount of darkness into your nightlife experiences. With the Radar crew he’s hosting some of the wildest nights of Underground Dance music in Poland. When producing he has a knack for ice cold rhythms and sharp synth lines. His ever-changing, gear-heavy live sets have earned him a reputation as a tour de force in electronic beat music. Chino delivers an impressive five-tracker for shtum out of Dresden, a city he maintains a well-established connection to. From the hard hitting rhythms of “Kolaps” to the gloomy sound excursions of “Plattenbau”, you’ll feel in every note that this music comes straight from the heart. These are tracks that are interwoven by everything that surrounds Chino, whether it’s friends, drum machines or FM synths, architecture or just the mighty Tatra mountains. Dance the pain away.
Chino is Krakow, Poland’s Artur Oles. Artur is into Polish Brutalist architecture, poster art, 80’s drum machines, FM synthesis, tape hiss, obscure eastern electronics, Tatra mountains. Following a series of impeccable records, this is Chino’s debut on cassette. Eight tracks of perfectly studied techno with edges of the abstract.
Holger #10 introduces yet another new face to the ever growing label crew: Chino has been one of the most busy live performers in Poland for the last decade – playing all-hardware sets in clubs and at festivals on a weekly basis. His »HISS« EP is a true Acid treasure and Holger’s most decisive step into proper club territory. »Worker« and »Paper Rider« are two bass-heavy dancefloor belters, with strong kickdrums and synapse-tickling 303 lines. The flipside shows two more of Chino’s many facets: While »31.08.« is a slow-burning Dubtechno hypnosis, »Shifter« closes the EP with moody Electro.
