Xuntanza is a galician word that means: The action of gathering a group of people to discuss an issue or have fun. And this is what it is the first volume of this VVAA series.

Versalife, Cignol, Nullptr and boss label, Roi are the responsible to open the debate on this gathering.
Full of electro bleeps, acid vibes and lovely breaks, 2030 aka Nico Campanella reveals a very exciting, terrific 4-track electro-oriented release and teams up with talented Versalife for a huge remix of ‘Maze’.
The original Versalife tryptich on Clone West Coast Series. “Night Time Activities” is taking us down deep into the night. Versalife is creating a setting with sounds radiating the midnight atmosphere that reflects the twin peak-esque life on a almost deserted windy Dutch coastal island where the clouds rush through the dark night time skies projecting all variations of grey and black on the mystifying dunes. Futuristic electro techno tracks with emotive synth work created with exploratory imagination. Dark, sinister and intense!

For their 4th release LDI Records present the debut solo EP from Texan electro producer Terrestrial Access Network – Distant Lands. The release is drawn from the artist’s shifting and hectic nomadic existence around the rattling expanse of the United States presenting 5 original cerebral electro tracks, backed up with a spooked out remix from Delsin Records’ Versalife aka Conforce. Based in Austin, Texas, a city famous for its hyper-vibrant creative musical scene, Terrestrial Access Network feeds from the energy of this environment just as much as the desert that surrounds it. His day to day life involves travelling for near constant work projects – spending days and weeks away from home in what is a hectic lifestyle. In the feelings he channels when writing Distant Lands – he is pulled back towards the energy of the serene and calm landscape while on the road dealing with an unsettled nature of life and his profession. Terrestrial Access Network began releasing music as recently as 2019 with tracks picked up for compilations on Swiss label Dionysian Mysteries. With a sound that is expert at creating powerfully immersive heads down moments for the dancefloor TAN has driven this EP with an ever present and intoxicating mechanical funk.
