Cassegrain – ARCS-02 [ARCS002]

The second release on Arcing Seas by label heads Cassegrain. This new material presents the duo’s very individual approach to tonality within the techno framework, combined with a subtle tribal influ-ence. Maintaining their aim, they keep things exciting for the club as well as sonically. Label info: Arcing Seas is an anagram of Cassegrain. It started out as a secret alias, releasing a couple EPs on Our Circula Sound. The secret was less well kept after the duo appeared at Berghain under this name. A year later, after deciding to start a label, it finally made sense to bring the two together.

VA – Killekill Megahits II [KILLEKILL025]

Killekill catalogue number 025 is a jubilee release and it’s also a milestone and turning point in the Killekill history, because with this release Killekill closes one chapter, and opens up another. So far, there is this compilation, which has been carefully compiled for your pleasure. Label regulars such as Cassegrain & Tin Man, Furfriend, Alex Cortex or Eomac have delivered high quality stuff of all kinds, but we are also introducing a lot of artists who will feature on the coming labels: Umwelt with his epic and dramatic electro, Dez Williams with his genre-crossing sound which works on every dance floor plus Power Vacuum’s Bintus who delivers his portion of electro/acid madness on Record 1. Record 2 features the legendary Detroit Grand Pubahs, who present their electro outfit Techmarine Bottom Feeders, The Fool’s Stone, which is a new project by Hard Ton, electro legend Adriano Canzian and italian queer artist Brigida plus London’s underground hero Jerome Hill, who lets it jack and roll with his Memory Machine. On Record 3 Kamikaze Space Programme surprises with some bell-driven percussive techno and what can we say It is with great pride that we include the acid techno epos by none other than the legendary ‘Prince of Techno’ Blake Baxter.

Cassegrain – Blood Distributed As Pure Colour [PRG036]

Since Cassegrain entered the techno consciousness back in 2010 with the final artist 12? on Kevin Gorman’s Mikrowave label, the Greco-Austrian pairing of Alex Tsiridis and Huseyin Evirgen have carved out their own corner in the world of foreboding, bassline driven, deep techno. The title track’s power electronics fall somewhere between a Regis, British Murder Boys and Donato Dozzy production, while the focus of “Hexagon Fifteen” is steely ambience, oblique drums and ghostly textures. The final track, “Yokai”, is what real Prologue fans will associate with most thanks to its floating hypnotisms and extreme feedback loops.

Cassegrain – Tiamat [PRG030]

Prologue with a double pack delivering 6 tracks of deep trippy dark techno. German duo Cassegrain take the name for their latest release Tiamat from the Babylonian chaos monster. If anything, though, this six-track EP is the embodiment of their take on dub-techno after Hüseyin Evirgen and Alex Tsiridis have buffered out the edges of a heretofore scabrous discography — chaos has very little to do with it.

Cassegrain – Painter-Palette EP [MRECLTD011]

CASSEGRAIN - Painter Palette EP (Front Cover)

M_Rec Ltd is proud to welcome on board Cassegarin, Greek-British producer Tsiridis and Berlin/Vienna based composer and producer Evirgen. Both interested in exploring the territories where dark, raw techno meets UK-influenced sounds. On this new vinyl for M_Rec LTD, they bring two original tracks and a remix by Ed Davenport.
The A side opens with A Painter Of Modern Life, a track laying the perfectly disturbed rhythm of modern life. A sequence of hypnotic techno where the rhythms are never heavy, the sounds antiseptics. Around this base, a brilliant and affective melody emerges. A touch of class that only few can sustain. Completing the A side there’s a remix by Ed Davenport. He throws the original track into a vortex of syncopated rhythms and deep atmospheres: the groove that comes out is amazing.
 On the B side Cassegrain showcase one track. Palette is true techno, with its rhythm straight and direct. There is no stopping, even with soft sounds rising slowly from deep below. Everything transforms into a pleasant trip, exciting and alive.

Cassegrain – Dropa EP [PRG021]

Cover art - Cassegrain: Dropa EP

Cassegrain stands for a concave mirror and a secondary convex mirror. But on Prologue, Cassegrain stands for the new excellent duo (Huseyin Evirgen, Alex Tsiridis) with the clear direction to fulfill Prologue´s modern sound architecture in best form. Brilliant techno tracks with deepest dub feelings and enriched synth structures build a phantastic world of liquid sound relives.
