For the second release of KHIDI’s various artist series, the club combines together music from international pioneers Oscar Mulero and Orphx and its local, distinct residents Vulkanski and Yanamaste. All four original tracks undoubtedly illustrate and radiate the curated sound, vision and atmosphere of KHIDI. The second VA melds together diverse styles of techno, thus creating a singular and contrasting compilation.
Evod Music presents ‘Galleria’, a Various Artists mini-compilation with Oscar Mulero, Mike Storm, Evod & Oisel and Divide. ‘Perlora’ by Oscar Mulero is a perfect dancefloor tool. Continuous bleepy spaced out sequences dialogue perfectly with stationary drums patterns and noisy hi-hats. ‘Cosmic Occurance’ is Mike Storm’s first appearance on Evod Music, which welcomes his inimitable style. The track is dominated by repetitive sinusoidal glissandos and a powerful bassline sequence. ‘Dune’ by Evod & Oisel is live recorded and composed by four sounds. A raw kick, a (dynamically filtered) bassline sequence, a resonant melody and and a light hi-hat. The melody of ‘Enigma’ by Divide is endless. As his usual, a single sequence dominates the entire track, melted with distorted, powerful drums and raids of pure power, during track’s climax.
Falling Ethics are back providing fresh wax in the hands of two proper experts on studio duties: label owner P.E.A.R.L. sharing this extended EP with Pole Group’s and Warm Up records head, Oscar Mulero.
With it’s 10th release, Reclaim Your City is set to enter a new aesthetic cycle, sloughing its old skin for a brighter, all the more edgy one.

Oscar Mulero presents: ‘Perfect Peace’. Don’t expect dancefloor burners here, this time the spanish techno master goes deep and low, exploring sonic textures, low BPM grooves and the intelligent side of electronic music. Melodies, pads, drones and grooves collide in this soulful collection, conceived to be listened as a soundtrack. Oscar is not new to this sounds, in his Grey Fades To Green or Muscle and Mind albums he showcased his abilities in this field as well as with his Av projects Biolive and Monochrome. A new step in Oscar Mulero’s ever growing career, showing his studio skills and music taste, far beyond his role as a fundamental techno dj.

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.
It’s time to celebrate, nothing less than 50 releases spreaded along 17 years of existence. For this very reason we have planned an awesome remixes pack, splitted in two EP’s based in the limited clear vinyl Pattern Series originals and with an amazing digital release including all original cuts of the series not available digitally until now. If you weren’t lucky enough to get the translucent limited vinyl pattern series, now you have the chance of having them in your digital crate via the online version of the release.
‘Grey Fades To Green’ is the first album Oscar Mulero has released under his own name, after two acclaimed LPs under the moniker Trolley Route. This is the second part of the album. ‘Road To Pleasure’ is in the same vein. Out of this world drum programming, scientific labours on the synths and again a complex and mutant arrangement for this floor filler. ’46 (re-work)’ and ‘Repeater’ are the soundtrack to a post Blade Runner futuristic city, where everything is hidden under the acid fumes and the sunlight has never been seen. The sound of asteroids falling on a deserted city. Pure techno from outer space.
The argentinian Alderaan makes his debut on Warm-Up Recordings. He offers three slices of modern techno, heavy percussive based but whit a lot of intelligent elements inside. Oscar Mulero remixes one track, getting rid of the textures and focusing in rhythm and repetition in a minimalistic remake.
Birth Of Frequency is back on Pole Group. Two original tracks of scientific and complex techno, plus two remixes by Oscar Mulero and Zadig. “The Spelling” is a multi-layered sequenced anthem made of countless synth sounds, a punchy kick and an hypnotic arrangement, for those heady moments on the dance floor. Paris techno founder Zadig remakes “The Spelling”. He adds hypnotising, devastating drum machines and makes the synth line grow and disappear wisely. “Gate” returns to medium tempos, fattens the sound and goes for a deeper discourse. A construction tool for clubby action. Oscar Mulero remakes “Gate” by twisting it completely, adding random step sequences and harmonies, giving the kick a secondary role, and focusing on the essence of the groove.
Hyperbolic Paths is simultaneously deep and bleepy, accented by hi-hats in syncopation. The tom-heavy Suborbital Trajectories carries a serious groove, layered with lively melodic elements and an occasional unexpected statement cymbal crash. A haunting and hypnotic number, Inclination swells and increases in intensity, rolling on after its breakdown with a playful kick-clap interaction. Eccentricity is a spacious, dubby closing track with reverb-soaked ornamental splashes.
“It’s one year since we started this adventure and we want to celebrate pressing our first vinyl. For this special event we have onboard one of our best friends and someone we respect massively, no other than Oscar Mulero. He his providing two futuristic reworks of UnCUT’s track Beneath, floor orientated but mental at the same time, with flanged synth sequences and scientific drum programming making two techno tools that will crush sound systems worldwide.”
Slow paced beats and dubby chords by Oscar Mulero that mutate and run around the arrangement. Remixes by Architectural and Tensal.
Window 057′ is an arpeggiated tool made of a crazy synth sequence, shuffled hats and subtle kick drums in a constantly moving structure.’Window 092′ starts with a massive bass drum accompanied by synthetic bleeps and noises that soon are joined by repetitive sequences carrying the flow. Oscar Mulero’s remix for ‘Window 057’ is a cleaner approach to the original, less shuffled on the rhythms but with a lot more movement on the arpeggiated synth lines. The ‘Window 092’ remake slows down the pressure on behalf of a more liquid approach on the drums, and is more reverberated and deep. Oscar adds more percussive elements and puts the bleeps away using the main sequence as the centre of the arrangement.
”Muscle and Mind is the return of Oscar Mulero to long plays, after Grey fades to Green and Black Propaganda. ‘Muscle’ and ‘mind’ may seem antagonistic terms in real life, but in terms of music they make sense together, especially when talking about techno. The coalition of introspection and abstraction is not incompatible with the rough and the percussive, and this album is a good example of this. The underlying message behind the title refers to the reflection of mental states in the body, the genesis of emotions where body and mind are managed by the sense of hearing. Throughout these twelve tracks, one can dive into the musical world of this producer whose discourse mutates in every album, always intricate, always meticulous. Darkness acts as a thread and repetition as hypnotic therapy. But now, he sets his usual hard sound aside and looks for a much more cared for and precise sound , where there is room even for a harmony and musicality that go hand in hand with danceability. The combination of atmospheres and rhythms is constant throughout the album. Each of the cuts has been prepared with few sonic elements. He takes elements away one by one, and keeps exclusively the necessary. A record that has been developed during endless hours in airports and travelling, absorbing influences from all over the planet. Made in solitude but surrounded by people who don’t know what you are really doing on that computer. To close the circle, the album was mixed in professional studio using solid state technology, which gives this work a unique warmth that cannot be achieved in a domestic environment.”
This is the second reference of Falling Ethics, Berlin based label owned by P.E.A.R.L. This delivery is composed by two original tracks and remixes by the leader of techno in Spain, Oscar Mulero, and by The Transhumans, the Spanish duo based in Berlin.
