The 1st release from London label Monnom Black is a vinyl only affair that sees 3 original tracks from EarToGround’s Dax J with a remix from UK techno legend Mark Broom. A set of peak time weapons. Planet X, tough driving beats and hard soundscapes that lead into soothing echo chords. Mark Brooms remix keeps it in the same vein, peak time, hard hitting drums and driving bass in typical Broom fashion. The traditional sound of Alpha Rhythm strips things back with huge subs and eerie piano riffs, big kicks drums and gentle chords. The amen infused Dreamscape finishes off the EP with its old school rave vibes.

Dario Zenker’s ‘Dining’ is an uncompromising lecture in clever simplicity, straight in your face and stomach. Freestyle Man, the finnish oldschoolmaster drops a big synth-peaktime bomb. And British newcomers Dax J and Chris Stanford deliver a dubby and deep dancefloor shaker.
ETG005 the ‘Revok Ep’ sees two new upfront original tracks from Chris, Dax and Gareth with the addition of an outstanding extended remix of ‘Revok’ from the mighty ‘Ø [Phase]’.
