Today we have some of the techno releases from the last week you need to listen to…
With three EPs and an A-Sides cut to his name, Marco Faraone has been an invaluable label contributor, dating back to his Drumcode debut in 2013. The Italian remains one of scene’s most versatile producers, a torchbearer of both house and techno and able to craft both with masterful ease. Coming off two albums in 2020, his inspired form rolls on throughout ’21, with ‘Our Freedom’, his memorable fourth EP contribution to Adam Beyer’s label.
‘Burn Down’ is an evocative vocal-led trip, made just as much for the headphones as the dancefloors of the future. Led by layers of laser-kissed riffs and a resistance-leading vocal, the title track is an emotion-charged anthem-in-the-making. ‘Orbital’ has bags of personality and pep, bringing the vibe to a more optimistic place, with a silky melody line and plenty of effortless groove. ‘Magic Sunset’ is the cream on top; the percussion pulsating and punchy, as cascades of goosebump-inducing synths unfurl beautifully throughout the six-minute jam.
May the 21st meet Soko & Sev to deliver their two-tracks release – “Escape From the Earth” to CODEX Recordings!
Emerging from London’s Techno scene is newly formed duo Soko & Sev. The Serbian/Romanian outfit have moved from strength to strength in their debut months with multiple productions being quickly recognised by Pleasurekraft, Spartaque, T78, Ramon Tapia, The Yellowheads and Celic. 2020 for the duo begins with releases scheduled on Kraftek, IAMT, Autektone, Say What?, Reload Records and Play Off. On stage they have supported top tier performers such as Boris Brejcha, ANNA, Matador, Oliver Huntemann, Alex Stein and Anja Schneider to name a few. The pair now look ahead to a continued residency with ‘WRONG’, regular appearances on the middle floor at EGG in addition to iconic London venues.
May the 21st meet Ankara-based artist and producer – Sinan Celik to deliver his two-tracks release to Set About!
“I wanted to prepare a release where the groove and synth were blended, I created the backbone of the parts using the synth elements that I use frequently, and I improvised a little bit to reveal the whole piece. When I finished the pieces, I thought that I created exactly the sound in my mind and I was very pleased with this result.”
Moon Flower release was a journey for me, spent a lot of hours in my home studio going thru a lot of different melodies for each track. With the track “Emotions” i tried to make something with more groove, more for a big dance moment in a club, with big stabs and groovy percs combinations, leading to a breakbeat moment and then a nice lead shot on the drop.
In the “Moon Flower” track i tried to make a big cosmic atmosphere, with the big rolling bassdrums and the arps synths.
The last track “Love Machine” i tried to make a good deep techno vibe, with the constant atmos arps, but also with a lot of groovy percs. All of this combined make a amazing vibe for the release and i want to make a good playlist for all the podcast or sets in a club.
Voices From Elysium landed to Mazzinga Records with some of his most inspired works, consisting of two banger Techno tracks.
Preserving the unmistakable sound of the 303 and acid ethos through tripped out modulated cut-offs and resonances.
