Pounding techno from Rotterdam as we like it
The launch of TAR Electronics Series comes with the re-issue of Audiomatik. A true gem by Neuro-D, first released as an LP in 2002 on the experimental label Poeta Negra. Eleven minimalistic electro bombs, remastered and pressed on double vinyl, club ready and highly addictive. The first disc is solid silver with black labels and the second is black with silver labels, both packed in silver printed sleeves.
Direct and sharp cutting techno from Rotterdam, a split EP between Lenson and Thanos Hana.
Planet Rhythm teams up with Rotterdam techno operation TH Tar Hallow and releases a collection of tracks by artists that have frequently appeared on the cult label. Deep down westcoast electronics by respected artists such as Klankman, Charlton, labelboss Thanos Hana and Rhyw. Klankman opens up this 4-track VA with the ominous ”Can Not Use that Command On Overlapping Selections”. Berlin based Rotterdammer ”Charlon” follows up with the heavy arps and outgoing drums of ”Profiler”. Thanos Hana opens up the B side with the tough techno cut ”The Injury Pattern” and berlin based ”Rhyw” closes down the varied slice of vinyl with the moving ”MKFBTB”.
DimDj has no control over his life. Machines, records and noise boxes took over years ago. This is more than confirmed by this 5-track journey from acid techno to the old-school electro and further to Kuno’s dystopia, who delivers a complete acidic rework over PTN1.
The Greek / Dutch label Tar Hallow sets on after the label’s maiden voyage by Super Unknown. More poundy basement tracks as we dig them by Bunker alleviate Klankman.
Tar Hallow is a new label based in Rotterdam devoted in electronic music. First release on the label is from Super Unknown, producer Dimitris Damaskos (Damcase) from Thessaloniki and currently based in Rotterdam. The EP comes with four tracks of distorted techno in a no control journey where there is no need for so many mid and high frequencies.
