Premiere: Nandu – Horisont [TAU]

Over the last couple of years, Nandu has made quite an impact, dropping several releases both with Innervisions on their Secret Weapons compilations, his massive cut ‘Child Of A Child’ leveled dance floors across the world last year, and now he’s landed on TAU with four new cuts fresh from his lab. Kicking off with ‘Horisont’, a bumpin’ cut with dense kicks and an energy-fueled main melody which bounces around the mid-range. Shimmering synths complement the riff, transporting us from our mortal bodies into another vibrational dimension. This is the one we’re premiering with you today. Then we have ‘Outlined’, ...

Premiere: Delhia de France reworks Robot Koch’s track “All Forms are Unstable”

Robot Koch’s latest album, The Next Billion Years, is as musically as it is philosophically ambitious. Inspired by a mysterious recording the German producer serendipitously came across of the 20th century French explorer, Jacques-Yves Cousteau, the album imagines and gives sounds to a far distant future, “When I first heard the recording I was really blown away by its long term vision. When we think about the future we usually think about our own lifetime or the one of our children, but who really thinks a thousand or a million years into the future? Or even better, a billion years?” ... Read more

Premiere: Roman Flügel remixes Christian Löffler’s “Bergen”

In March this year, Christian Löffler released Lys, an album recorded and compiled in the serenity of his home studio. Christian now invites German electro veteran, Roman Flügel to add his own colours to Lys’ track Bergen. While produced within four walls, Lys’ grounding comes from what lies beyond them: light. What unifies these songs is the process behind them. Waking up early, Löffler would head for a run in the nearby woodlands before settling in his studio. He’d cast his mind back to the early morning and reflect on how the light had changed, marking the passing of time during ... Read more

Premiere: Totoray – Everlasting Movement [Interlight]

Totoray is the new project of Toto Chiavetta and Coloray, who joined forces to create a mixture of two radically different styles. Toto’s futuristic approach to sound design and Coloray’s raw and direct style in vocals and synths results in a mixture of club, pop, and wave music that neither feels at home in the past, present, or future. It’s two different worlds colliding, resulting in something that feels fresh and interchanges the specialties of both artists.  Both tracks were produced in a period of 6 months, with many tracks not making the cut. “It was interesting not to only ...
