Anthony Horton aka Blak Tony: From The Shadows Of Detroit's Inner City, To The Spotlight Of The World Stage

Detroit is a very special place. To many who have not been there, it's easy to fall for the typical news story about Detroit's decay and political issues. But what most of those people do not see, is the tenacity of it's people, and the unique approach to the arts in particular that have made Detroit an incubator if you will, of some of the most amazing music to influence the entire world.

Gear Highlight

Korg Volca Kick

Korg continues to diversify its Volca series with the recent release of additions like the new digital sampler, as well as its new FM synthesizer, the "Volca FM".

Record Reviews

Urban Connections - The Eighth Passenger

Spanish netlabel Urban Connections returns with yet another eclectic collection of Electro tunes you simply cannot miss out on. This new one, like all the previous, is free, and carefully handpicked by a well seasoned composer and producer who goes by the name of Amper Clap. The talent you will find in all these compilations is more than apparent, and the range of styles and mix of veteran and up and coming artists makes them even more interesting.

Lektroid - Beyond Theory

Lektroid returns with another fascinating ride through his ingenious musical mind that seems to know no limits! This artist has a knack for being very innovative in his sound design, without ever straying too far out and losing the core soulful aspect that makes his music very special.

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.
