All Killer no Filler Vol. 1 is the first release of the Köln based label Mephis. On this first delivery we are handed a 4 piece compilation from young uruguayan producers, all with their particular sort of spiciness and playful mischief. Alfalfa’s Vectorial Dings opens the EP with rusty acidic tones, eerie pads, warped drum samples and an overall restlessness that creeps through your spine inviting you into the dancefloor. Techno met Acid, flirted with Breaks and slapped Electro’s butt. An acidic variety of spiciness. Techno Trax follows, where diCarlo manages to create a playful atmosphere, with creative ever changing drum patterns, filter sweeping goodness, arpeggiated synth lines and deep hypnotic vocal samples. A sexy kind of spiciness. Elias Sternin’s track is a real banger, taking allthe classic ingredients for a steaming hot dancefloor stew. A cup of techno, a teaspoon of trance reminiscence, a pinch of progressive condiment, all served on a bed of arpeggiated goodness and rolling bass. A familiar yet refreshing take on spicy sauce. Closing the EP comes Lo-Lo with Brittany Stryker. Cold cutting synths, saturated and juicy bass, chonky percussions and a restraint propper of a spice connoisseur. Every element compliments the other, creating an odylic and tightly packed electro gem. A spicy; gazpacho looking, cold and sharp soup.

From the mind of VernoN comes the first release of Eupasia, a label that tells the story of a mythic world built under the ground by some undead worms that have gained human characteristics. This first EP evokes gloomy and misty ambiences, followed by electro rhythms and rough basses, creating tension and resembling claustrophobia feelings.

Steevio is perhaps one of the most influential electronic artists you’ve never come across. With more than forty years of knob-twiddling experience, this modular magician boasts enough cable to bring you to the moon and back. Away from the blinking racks, Steevio runs music festivals, like Freerotation, manages record labels and generally paves the way. Now this pioneer and Firescope are teaming up for a very special EP.With Acatalepsy, this veteran dives deep into his machines before resurfacing with four tracks of melting organic techno. “Tarantism” comes to life with drums, percussive textures that prove fertile ground for ever more intricate patterns while orange blossom keys bloom. From understated chatter, a hive of beats soon forms around “Cynefin” as dewy notes float on the warmth of a new dawn. The natural world is an integral part of these compositions, the industrious movement of rhythms, the change and reshaping that comes with growth. Another presence on the 12” is the musician himself and his own influences. These early inspirations come to the fore in the hazy hi-hats of “Oxytocin” with its satellite-like bleeps and dreamy basslines that echo both the armchair and club of sounds of 90s techno. Those bleeps grow ever more distant in the fragile finale of “Intonation.” A melody precariously perches, thawing like ice, above delicate echoes that ghost behind modular bulges as drums fade.Acatalepsy encapsulates the ephemeral nature of sound. Through this selection of one-off recordings, through these live jam sessions, Steevio captures a palpable and primal energy with an expert’s ear. An EP that casts spells from beginning to end, an EP from a true waveform wizard.
Anthony Di Franco (Ramleh, Skullflower, AX) debuts on L.I.E.S. with his infamous JFK project. Starting in 1987, Di Franco was immersed in the burgeoning UK "tape exchange by mail" scene which fostered many different strains of extreme and experimental sounds being developed during this time.Initially working in a murky, decayed industrial sound, as the project has progressed to the the present, JFK has transformed the early approach into a now razor sharp, hi- fidelity, punishing wall of sound that still envelops the listener in the same way as his early music but now with a refined and massive sonic attack.Throughout Avalanche Zone's six tracks we get Di Franco in top form alternating from blistering machine gun rhythms to stand still slow beat metallic crushers with synthetic electrified drama forcing the air from the speakers demonstrating full on sound pressure. This is a welcome addition to the JFK catalog and further expands how the artists vision has developed as the years have passed. Complete and total heaviness!
Kasper Marott will release his debut album ‘Full Circle’ in November on his own Axces Recordings imprint. The album features 11 tracks that explore different genres and moods, while remaining within Kasper’s colourful universe.Full Circle demonstrates Kasper’s ability to play with layers and structure. The tracks are built from complex layered harmonies, looped melodies and different rhythmic textures. Kasper’s intuitive approach to production, in addition to the inspiration he finds in other genres, his local community and society as a whole, has resulted in an album that feels fresh and unique.“With the tracks on the album, I think I’ve been through a process of pushing my own notions within contrasts, musical themes, genres, and composition. Whether the musical tool is transcendence, catchy melodies, or silly experiments, the goal is to put the listener in a position that allows an enriching and meaningful experience whether it’s good, bad, funny, euphoric, nostalgic, sore, or even something completely different.”In 2018, Kasper released his breakthrough EP on Modeselektor's Seilscheibenpfeiler label. The euphoric title track ‘Keflavik’ lit up clubs and festivals all year long and was named “one of the biggest club records of the year” by Resident Advisor. One of the album’s tracks, ‘Sol’, will also be released as an extended version on Kasper’s forthcoming EP on Seilscheibenpfeiler.
