Blocaus series is back and explores this time the deep side of things guided by the fearless AWB lighting the way. AWB’s sound oscillates between deep / atmospheric techno, with film scoring influence which are reflected in this EP. He delivers 4 fantastic cuts including an outstanding remix by Peter Van Hoesen all on the edge of an amazing melancholic and deep techno style.
Time To Express marks its 30th release, presented by label founder Peter Van Hoesen. The Belgian producer takes up the opportunity to expand upon his previous work on the Coast To Coast EP. No longer exclusively restricted to straight 4/4 rhythms, Van Hoesen’s music investigates hybrid, broken grooves infused with a clear sense of spatial sonic awareness. This is made clear with the first two tracks, Towards Manifestation and Shapeshifting. On the second half of the EP Van Hoesen launches two solid techno cuts, shifting from dense bassline work (Concrete Variation) to percussive, shuffling grooves (Fox Tactics).
Oscar’s Blood is Peter Van Hoesen’s tenth solo EP for his own Time To Express label. It features four new tracks, composed and refined in the producer’s Berlin studio and properly tested during several shows in late 2016 and early 2017. Both Oscar’s Blood and Circumference 12 feature Van Hoesen’s take on driving and hypnotic techno. He applies a different approach to Unit Prep and Theoretical Terminal. Both compositions take their cue from subtle yet vibrant percussive patterns, extending into blissful atmospheres.
