Luxus Varta - Aquamarine Puzzle

September will see the exciting return of Luxus Varta!! After Solar One Music, Killekill and Intramuros Records, the French don pins Shipwrec to his hunting table.

 

With "Aquamarine Puzzle", real name Emeric Di Paolo delivers six utterly complex Electro cuts of his trademark characterized by Drexcyian inspired melodies and organic Electro beats. The result is a mind blowing EP and an absolute must have 12".

 

Retrograde Youth - We're Not Human Anymore EP

With more than 20 releases of high quality since 2013, Rotterdam based Pinkman and its Broken Dreams white sublabel, have made a solid reputation of purveyors of refined Electronic Music. Run by Marsman, the Netherlands imprint can argue of being an eclectic platform of music and a talent searcher.

Dark Prophet - Teleportation Non Stop

Hailing from Liege, Dark Prophet made his first appearance on the electronic scene in 2012 with his debut EP "LHC disorder", followed by a complete album, "Spaceship One", a few months later on Battery Park Studio.

 

This year, the Belgium synthesizer player makes a remarkable follow up to his first LP, on Croatian prime label Crobot Muzik run by N-Ter and Dj Xed.

 

Formshift - Disorder

If you like your Electro harsh and cold, let's rush on this insane new release from the Bass Agenda Recordings catalog!

 

Exzakt - Feeling EP

Larry McCormick announced the end of his Electro project five years ago. But due to popular demand, Exzakt has returned this month for our greatest joy.

 

On command of the "Feeling EP", a five tracker in Exzakt's typical flavor but with a modern twist and unexpected vibes, the US artist offers a preview of his upcoming album "Evolved" to be released soon. 

 

Sigma Algebra - Corollary Two

Also known as Dg!, a veteran DJ with many years of services, Eduard Jiménez has made a name for himself under the no-nonsense Sigma Algebra moniker thanks to brilliant Electro productions on some of Spain's most regarded labels such as Urban Connections, Amper Clap Productions or Elektrodos Recordings over the last five years.

 

ATIX - Tunnel EP

Even as a newcomer to Bass Agenda Recordings, French artist ATIX still has a solid musical career with more than 18 years of good and faithful services to the electronic cause on labels such as Lot49, Mako Records, Crux Records, BNR Trax (Boysnoize) or his own Division Virtuel just to name but a few.

 

V/A - Electrobass Development Phase 2

Subsonic Device returns, this time with the second installment in its "Electrobass Development" vinyl series, bringing you a roster of artists that will make this one an absolute classic and one you simply cannot pass on! I for one am deeply honored to be the very first person to hear this record in test press form, and could not believe my eyes when I saw many of my all-time favorites on this 2x12".

/DL/MS/ - Rogue Intent

Here comes the debut of a hopefully long series of EP's on TRUST from Dan Lodig aka Lok44, and Martin Sovinz; better known as Dibek. Combining their versatile talents under their fresh yet enigmatic /DL/MS/ project, the two Austrians offer today four epic cuts half way between abstract Electro and much anticipating Techno. The result ventures into the darkest streets of a futuristic nocturne city in a dystopian future.

 

Cardboard And Computers - The Best Ones

New Zealand independent label and artistic studio "The Area", established in 1998, inaugurates the debut release with the Cardboard And Computers multimedia project.

 

As a collective of artists composed of guitarist Evan Short, Latin percussionist Tony Escapa, lead vocals Otis Frizzell, synth programmer Tom Ludvigson and mixer Mike Weston (accessorily the label owner), the band aims to provide experimentation and innovation in creative capability.

Alekay - Space Madness

Frajile Recordings returns, this time with a new title from strong up and comer Alekay, who delivers with "Space Madness", an ingenious Electro Bass single with vibes, beats and funk to spare! Includes a remix by James Wolfe in collaboration with Cloak as well, so you can imagine things are bound to get a bit wild here!

 

Kretz - Electronic Warriors EP

Following M3taN01a's release a month ago, Swedish Jonas Lund aka Kretz returns to Japanese AGD label; run by AE35, with a second EP of his trademark featuring three tracks ranging from pure Electro, to more Breaks styles.
