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.

Premiere: Listen to Denis Rodd “Minotaur” Out Soon on Cochlea Music

After the organic and natural-sounding debut, Denis Rodd was inspired by Greek mythology and modern cinematography for his second EP, which is out on Cochlea Music this coming November 24th.

In the opening track,“Charlie & The Acid Factory,” the label founder is found grasping Tim Burton‘s fantasy fairy tale Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and replacing the chocolate with acid, creating a track that has an alluring beat.

The energetic density increases in the track “Slow,” the drum machines and plug-in sounds pushing the vocals forward, which in any case aren‘t slow at all. Or is it the exact opposite? Tribal magic emanates the ’40s and ’50s Blues in the vocal samples, a touch of African ancestral culture, jazz trumpets – the minor scales are hypnotically similar to the techno scales.

In the title track “Minotaur,” which we are premiering today, Denis Rodd finally transforms the bull-headed monster from the ancient legend into a hybrid with a fidgety techno skull, and body and soul made from warm Deep House. Bittersweet, melancholic and yet joyful is the captivity in Minotaur’s labyrinth of BPM, melodic murmurs, small surprises and contrasting sound events.

Q&A and Global Vibe Radio 84 feat. Brunetto (Freelastica, Irregular)

This week’s GVR podcast comes directly from Spain, where Brunetto hails from. A musician, composer, DJ and music journalist born in Seville but based in Barcelona, Brunetto’s musical soundscape is a wide one, as this eclectic mix proves.

Brunetto’s artistry can be traced back to the broken beat school, after which it followed a journey that saw him traverse through 80s funky-rap, trip-hop, 90s rock big beats, post-beats, post-dubstep, IDM and even future bass. Describing his musical output as “diverse” would be an understatement, just as it would be to use the same adjective to describe his involvement with the electronic music world.

He has played festivals the likes of Sónar, Move, Klubbers Day, Space of Sound, Territorios, Electroshock and Observatori, all the while holding DJ residencies at venues such as Bauhaus, Funclub, Sumo, Elefunk, Jackson, and Demo. His tours have taken him to DJ booths throughout Europe, all the while working as an artist manager, agent and holding several PR and journalistic positions within the industry.

His guest mix for GVR clocks in at just under a hour-and-a-half. Listen to it below, download it for free here and read on for our interview with Brunetto.

Premiere: Listen to Paulo Olarte’s “Giros” on Galaktika Records

Maurice Aymard’s Galaktika label has long been a source of discerning house and techno, so it’s no real surprise that its latest is very much cut from the same cloth. The latest in the label’s Action Series, it once again features two producers, each of whom serve up one original track each. It’s a neat way of working  that’s served them well thus far, and with no remixers diverting attention, it ensures the spotlight is very much on the two tracks on offer.

Opening up the release is the sounds of Aymard’s “Blacklight”. A driving,charging, battle weapon of a track, it’s full of intense motifs from the get-go. Full of suspense and trippy synths, it’s a moody track that’s primed for that moment in the night when things begin to take a different turn. A surefire party starter, it’s sure to be appreciated by the likes of Steve Bug, Michael Mayer and Maceo Plex to name but a few.
