Occultists is a label concept born out of the idea of playing with the polarities of finding the light within the darkness and curating a musical output of techno that has an esoteric flair.
After making some noise with their freshman release from Dugong, label founder James Demon continued on the hunt from some fresh new artists to officially join the Occultists family. Finding just that, the label is proud to present it’s sophomore release Book Of Shadows: Various Spells Vol. 1.

MODOR is a techno and electronic underground music producer based in Italy. Although this project was launched in 2015, MODOR made his way into the music industry with another alias back in 2003. During this time he has played many clubs throughout Italy, as well as abroad in countries such as Greece and Spain. Utilizing Ableton software and a beloved Korg synth, MODOR is constantly searching for the perfect sound based on atmospheres, bridges between genres, electronic melodies with effects, distortions and cutoffs, sometimes also incorporating deep and sub bass lines and dark vocals too.
“Limitless” is one of three tracks from MODOR’s forthcoming Confessions Of A Nerd DJ which is out on Phunk Traxx on July 25th.
Audiojack are the Leeds grown, Ibiza based duo who have built a solid reputation over the last decade as DJs, producers, remixers and label curators. Their original releases can be found on leading house and techno labels like Crosstown Rebels, 2020Vision and Hot Creations, as well as Tsuba, Leftroom and Culprit. They have remixed for labels such as Moon Harbour, B-Pitch Control and Diynamic, whilst Underworld, Groove Armada and Hot Since 82 are amongst the artists to have enlisted Audiojack for remixes.
Running their own dancefloor focused label Gruuv for over five years has provided an alternative home for their original music. It was Audiojack’s passion for DJing though which drove their desire to produce music and curate a label in the first place, adding “promoter” to their repertoire in 2015 with the launch of their Sunday Social free party in Ibiza. Held at the intimate Veto club the ethos is aligned with the true spirit of Ibiza. A small place with good music, unannounced guest DJs, no door charge and affordable drinks.
The 9th release off German imprint Lanthan.audio presents the sounds of Los Angeles duo Motionen.
The audio/visual project created by founders Carlos Matamoros (a.k.a. Altrd Being) and Matt Salamone presents its solid reputations on dance floors throughout the City of Angels with growing international response and reputation.
The duo founded their own imprint, Ascetic Limited, in the last year with a very promising path already laid out in front of them. The label focuses on the driving sounds of acid, ambient, and deep techno and, since its fairly recent inception, has released strong EPs featuring tracks and remixes by the likes of Christian Gerlach, Dorian Gray, HOBI, Deepbass and Motionen themselves.
From the guitar flourishes in Agua Blanca to the rolling bass in Café Del Sol and the acid-flavored arpeggio in “Burning Man”, Horatio‘s fresh EP is as multifarious as it is high-end. Imbued with subtle grooves and solid beats, its poised to turn any dance floor into clubbers paradise.
Making his full solo debut on Audio Rehab we welcome all the way from Russia the exciting young producer Alex Twitchy. First coming to our attention last year with releases on Sleazy Deep, Monotonik, White Widow and having just been featured on our ‘Global Session Ep’ Alex delivers 3 raw underground grooves which will heat up any dance floor.
Deep dark and hard hitting basslines with tough beats are the key ingredients here and Alex has taken the vibe we love to heart showing that the influence of the sound is being felt far and wide. The result is fitting with Alex’s sound, characterized by powerful dynamics and an aggressive bass line, which without a doubt gives his productions a stylish and modern sound.
The latest chapter in the Clouded House story is a three-tracker that again displays why the label is quickly earning a reputation for impressive house and techno cuts. Fresh from a run of sell-out Prince edits, ‘Sthlm 4ever’ (an ode to the little known rave scene of Stockholm, Sweden) features three deep tracks with label head Lukas Lyrestam contributing one effort as well as enlisting the services of fellow up-and-comers Gideon Forceman and Ludvig Franzen.
Opening up matters is the brilliantly funky “Little Bit.” Full of clever, sun-kissed guitar chords and off-kilter FM bass, it moves along at a breezy pace that emphasizes the label’s penchant for the carefree side of the electronic music spectrum.
Next up is Gideon Forceman’s “Listen Up.” A hazy number that glides along at a gentle, rolling pace, it soon picks up momentum and unfurls amongst a bed of glistening synths. An almost effortlessly positive number, this one is sure to leave dancers smiling towards the tail-end of the night.
Culminating the EP is Ludvig Franzén, who pops up with “Lie”, a clever effort that merges a fair dose of atmosphere and suspense with a unique take on an infamous vocal sample. We are proud to premiere this track for you today, which you can listen to in full below.
With each track boasting its own inimitable charm, Clouded House’s fifth installment is another fine contribution to an already impressive discography – Dusty grooves, raw cuts and hazy nostalgia on a frosty blue vinyl from the land of ice and snow!
Following a release from Alland Byallo the new 22 Digit Records release is from Dubrovnik (UK), a fresh new talent based in the Scottish city of Glasgow.
Dubrovnik (UK) appears after a release on Flashmob’s self-titled label and this is only his third official release. Complimenting the two originals on this release is a remix from Reset Robot.
Reset Robot is famed for his seminal releases on Adam Beyer’s label Truesoul and Sven Väth’s Cocoon, plus a recent debut EP on Anja Schneider’s imprint Mobilee. Not just a solo producer Reset Robot also regularly collaborates with Alan Fitzpatrick under the alias of Customer.
“Rene” is led by a thick lead pad which glides through the track’s stripped back percussion to provide its driving force. Chic in every sense of the word, this is a fine example of how less can so often be so much more. The structure is Techno influenced, but the style of the groove is more commonly associated with House music, making this dancefloor track the perfect hybrid.
Reset Robot’s remix of “Rene” keeps the originals minimalistic but adds his own subtle melody to replace the originals dominant lead synth. Building with complexity as the track develops, he adds sounds which create a more spacious sense of atmosphere. Deeper and more abstract than some might expect from Reset Robot, this intelligent remix shows off his versatility as a producer.
“Block” has a tough groove lead by a dominant kick drum and prominent clap sample. Murky and mysterious, a muffled synth stab and textured FX lay a foundation for the fragile melody to sit. Driven by the rich stabs of the polished lead sound, this club friendly track is the pinnacle of sophistication.
