Illektrolab: Life, Bass And The Careful Balance Between Man And Machine

Sometimes, conciliating Electro with your way of life can be sporting. For almost 2 decades, Jason McCracken aka Illektrolab (Satamile, Duality Recs, Advanced Robotiks) has been haunting warehouses worldwide with some of the harshest dancefloor beats and subsonic Bass. But did you know that this versatile artist hailing from Arizona was also an adventure lover who found his Paradise in Costa Rica?

Artist Highlight

Jackal & Hyde

Call it what you will: Electro, Electrocore, or even perhaps Techno Bass on hyperdrive. Whatever their music is to you, there is one thing everyone can agree on: Jackal & Hyde's sound in the late '90s was as much a catalyst for the 3rd wave of our music, as Dynamix II and groups like Aux 88 were to the continuation of Electro Funk as its Bass counterpart in the late '80s. 

 

Label Highlight

Over-X-Posure

Alavux - Ohm

Meeting Goran aka "Alavux" recently on Dave Clarke's second Electro event, "Whip It", was a real pleasure. The man embodies his music. That's what he represents. He is as energetic as his beats and cuts, passionate when he talks, always there for a laugh or a joke. In addition, there's no genre in the wide range of Electro/Techno he doesn't challenge. Every release he puts out, surprises and tells one new story after another.
