Premiere: Listen to Wudec’s “Poltergeist” Out On Brand New Label Farsighted Records

Wudec is a young producer from Silesia, introducing the world to his extended EP entitled Absolution — the first outing of a brand new label from Poland called Farsighted Records and available via the label’s Bandcamp page.

The result is a fresh, bold and untrammeled combination of a deep dub techno, acid 303-like sound and massive kicks. This blend is an extraordinary journey, during which a medieval castles, baroque temples, renaissance operas and row walls of modern clubs are being visited. A journey, that blears Christian tradition with pagan ritual. This is an epic tale about Europe and a bow in front of the wealthy culture, that have been shaping the Continent through the ages. On top of four original tracks, the EP comes complete with two remixes from highly appreciated Polish producers, Kuba Sojka and Michal Jablonski.
