Inner Surface Music is proud to present the next release from Endlec.
The talented Greek producer has been cementing his name in the techno scene over the past 6 years with his own take of raw sounding techno.
`Stronger Than Fear´ kicks the EP off with its tough and infectious groove. This is classic techno with a modern touch, sharp stripped
percussion plays with the syncopated stab and melodic sequence for pure dance floor tension. `Strictly Havoc´ is a more distorted affair
the distorted kick plays with the percussion feeling loose and scatty to create swing against the twisted and demented melodies of the
`SKG Electrik´ - this is Endlec showing how simplicity can destroy any dance floor. Tight rhythmic percussion and heavy kick drum meander
and slip along the surface while the stab is only adding to the momentum and pressure of this steam train.
`SKG Electrik´ (Makaton Cordyceps Remix) - to close the ep we have a remix from one of the original UK techno innovators, Makaton. The remix starts with a hypnotic passage of endlec´s original stabs rearranged into something more psychedelic and spaced out. In true Makaton form we drop into a deep and dark driving section of stripped back drums before melting into the hypnotic stabs to crescendo as we slowly dissolve away into the darkness.

Inner Surface Music is proud to present the next release from Ewa Justka. Ewa Justka is one of the most exciting new experimental artists on the scene for the last few years. She has been paving the way with her unique take on techno, noise, experimental and power electronics. Not only satisfied with making music but also a designer and maker of excellent DIY synthesisers, effects and sequencers under her Optotronics company.
‘Jelly Tits Everywhere’ kicks off proceedings with a contorted acidic workout, 303 baselines are wrapped around distorted, swung drums creating elasticated envelopes before the hardcore kick drum pummels us into submission at a frenetic tempo. ‘Oh How Edgy’ drops the tempo but retains the intensity this time Ewa´s approach strips everything back to the backbone of the groove creating a deeply hypnotic techno track that sucks you into a whirling vacuum.
‘You Are Really Repeating Yourself Indeed (KRTM Remix)’ KRTM is another young artist who has been pushing his harder edge techno sound of the last two years. His remix does not disappoint he delivers a powerful version of ‘YARYI’ with a remix thats pushes both his love for hardcore and the Belgium rave sound. ‘You Are Repeating Yourself Indeed’ hyperactive and twitchy synth lines weave and play off each other in this twisted workout. Instantly drawing the listener closer as the track builds and builds to a monstrous crescendo of mutated acid.

Inner Surface Music is proud to present its next release from JK Flesh, Justin Broadrick needs no introduction fans of hardcore, metal and industrial music will know him from Napalm Death, Godflesh, Techno Animal, Jesu and Pale Sketcher to name a few.
‘Wasplike’ see´s Jk Flesh enter a new strain of his techno, the drums are both distorted and sculpted for the dance floor. Heavy and syncopated rhythms build tension while an elastic bass-line hovers and mutates around melodic washes. ‘Mindprison’ is a pummelling techno cut, sleazy grooves snake around the thudding kick drum and the greasy bass spreading across the dance floor like an uncontrollable oil spill. Dissonant chords and bell sequences modulate and enter us into a more tripped out dimension. ‘New Build Estate’ starts with pure tension the hats are fizzling and the low end is hammering, sharp mutilated synth sequences cavort to each others intention and lush pads enter us into the unapproachable splendour of empyrean . This is peak time rawness with real sophistication. ‘Dark Horse’ is the archetypal JK Flesh track. Slower in tempo than the others but as the name suggests this is a deeper cut but it still lacerates the speakers with the grungey bass-line weaving through the stomping overdriven kick and metallic percussion. The groove is undulating and as it flows it twists and turns before your eyes, while dark textures scrape around the walls in the distant echoes.

Inner Surface Music is proud to present its next release from Canadian duo MDD.
Falling Inside opens the ep bringing together industrial and punk prototypes of the duo’s influences in the shape of a techno stomper. Chunky kick drums and gnarly textures fizzle and pop to the march of the industrial rhythms before the low slung bassline and abstract vocal cuts take the track into a darker realm. Tension builds and welds together heavy broken kick patterns with crisp but rusty percussion demolishing everything in sight. The elements amalgamate together creating tension with walls of sub bass, while remaining spacious and nonchalant with glacial atmospheric pads, dropping and breaking like a thunderstorm overhead.
Truth + Method has a pulsating punk like groove, pumping kick drums play off lacerated snare and high hat hits. The groove is relentless, funky bass lines, distorted vocal stabs and obscure concrete style pads fabricate as if melting in the tape machine. Techno music with an organic industrial feel, warm analog sounds with a metallic and vicious sensibility.
Destruction Of Metaphysics is a true representation of the MDD sound. Dark playful electronica walking the line between industrial, experimental and techno. The distorted bass and percussion are fully over driven in the mix pushing the elements to the extremity, clanging piston like snares drop to give structure to the savage groove. Noise and textured elements build and reverberate to let you feel like you are trapped inside the machines of a huge power plant, reduced but elaborate in style and experimentation.
