Cybereign is back once again, and this time with a really seriously devastating collection of Techno Bass jams that show in perfect example what the sound of Detroit's international infuence sounds like in 2017.

V/A - W/X

Vinyl they say, is making a comeback. And while it is true that for many labels that had stopped for economic reasons it is still a tough idea to consider, it is hard not to see the courageous endeavour of many young aspiring imprints getting into the game to try things out. One of these labels is the European label "Mélodies Souterraines".

Boyd Goosman - Back In The Race E.P.

Emmanuel Taron, previously a member of the iconic Noirdegout outfit, featured on famed Techno imprints like No Fear and Dave Clarke's White Noise, returns here under his new Boyd Goosman pseudonym on his equally new French imprint Aequilon Records, with a 12" output that reflects his deep passion for Detroit's eclectic take on Techno.

Freddy Fresh aka The Modulator - Jungla

Re-launched three years ago, EMF (Electronic Music Foundation), the subdivision of Analog Records formed in 1993 by Freddy Fresh and Auto Kinetic, was in a kind of wakefullness. This state is now over with the release today of the excellent "Jungla", Freddy's approximatively 17th or 18th album so far since his first steps into Electronic Music back in 1992.

 

T/error - Eka Bismuth

Every opus dropped by T/error (Body Control, Borg Recordings) comes from a specific idea, and "Eka Bismuth" doesn't depart from those rules. Having explored in 2015 the different spectrums of sound on his debut full length "D7", then the instability of Uranium (a metaphor to the instability of the Human Being) on "U235", the Roman artist proudly presents his third concept album.
