In his new project, Colombian Buitrago re-invents the tribal techno, approaching it with certain minimalism and injecting into it superb melodious drones. Adhémar & Farazdeck add their own tribal touch, for an overall well-inspired release.
Reeko – Crystal Clear [Ownlife, 2022-01-21]
Juan Rico keeps on exploring the raw & textured side of techno in his project Reeko, our favourite one. He pushes the boundaries further in “Crystal Clear”, for our greatest pleasure.
Notzing – Zona [Knotzept, 2021-12-21]
The EP from December 2021 went under the radars, including ours. We rehabilitate it, because more than being phenomenal, it is perfect to introduce a DJ mix or a live event…
Elizar Mel and Flare – Smoke Plains EP [Onset Audio, 2022-01-21]
That moment when you say “it’s too good” ineluctably happens when you hit play on Onset‘s last release, served with profound atmospheres and mesmerising percussions. The two artists complement each other perfectly in this superb EP.
We know him from his work in the dope labels Onset and Vumantra, he’s back with a self-release: the two first tracks come as tasty appetisers for the massive third one.
State Azure – Hydrostatic [State Azure, 2022-01-14]
UK veteran State Azure, usually very cinematic and aerial, plays a deeper card in this release, which suits him particularly well. The man is very dedicated and also generous, giving away most of his music.
Ver – Artic [Sephora, 2022-01-21]
Shhh, take off your shoes before hitting play and remain silent, you are entering a quiet contemplative space on Mexican label Sephora.
