OHM Series continues to round up some of the best and the brightest within the dub techno scene. Side A features Federsen and Roger Gerressen, while the flipside we find grad_u and Merv.
Echocord launchs the sub-label Echo Echo with the ‘Dream Observer’ EP from Grad_U. The release opens with ‘Jacob’s Dream’, fifteen minutes of release date: subtly modulating synth glitches, ethereal synth drones, sweeping atmospherics and dubby echoes creating a hypnotic, ever-unfolding composition. ‘Observing The Night Sky’ then follows on the flip side with thunderous kick drums, rumbling low-end pulses, wandering dub chords and bubbling glitches all subtly nuanced throughout the tracks ten-minute duration.
ARTS Transparent shaped his form in many different ways into electronic music, giving clear directions to any other label out there, emotionally and technically. This time the label will focus on the first Dub Master Series, a collective of the best Dub Techno Artists we have around the globe. Zoltan Solomon / Grad_U / IXM aka Kaelan / Hydergine.
STL aka Stephan Laubner delivers a powerful dubby house track, a floating upbuilding dubby ambient track, and a Grad_u remix.
