The second release is a split between the Label owners LC12 and the rising star Autre.
On the first side Rumore and Orphidal are opening the release with a 115 bpm proto-ambient track filled with liquid grooves and tribal elements while in the second cut they are showing us their faster and deep-acid side with Conversations.
On the other surface Autre is killing it with Filter Sessions 329, a mental techno trip did while experimenting with his new filter bank, an 808 and a Juno 106. The B2 is an elegant track with a Fred P-esque touch, suitable for every kind of dance floor.

The 3rd release of the newly upcoming label of the Ouer boys is coming correct in the form of an high quality package of remixes done by talented friends & supporters.
Since their first release on the label last November and the remarkable release on Detroit swindle's Heist last April, the duo has been making the rounds in the circles of A list dj's.

Known as producers of the highest order, Roberto Rodriguez (Freerange, Fina, Serenades, Let's Play House) & Panthera Krause (Uncanny Valley, Riotvan, Lobster Theremin) are leading the cast while upcoming talents as Minimal Afrika, Perfect Straight & THOMMYY RA inject a juice of freshness to the whole operation.

Both sides evoke the ubiquitous tension between anxiety and gratification inherent to a curious human experience.
Driving bass and organic percussion sit within a subtly evolving context, as the tone oscillates between claustrophobia and euphoria. The result is two ultimately uplifting techno tracks, equally relevant on the dance floor as in the hands of the home listener.

Dirt Fishing is the follow-up to ‘Slag Heap’ NRV001 (a split 12" made up of sounds recorded in a slate mine).
This time it comprises of recorded sounds encountered during a day of metal detecting on Walthamstow marshes. The recordings include the direct output from the proximity sensor on the metal detector, ambient eld recordings from the environment, conversations with friend and fellow dirt sher, Glen, and separate sounds recorded by knocking, tapping and rubbing the found items.

“Since debuting with a sound rooted in UK funky, house and dubstep, the English producer has spent years playing a game of chicken with himself: just how off-piste can he go without falling off a cliff? The sixth release on No Symbols is the closest he's come, but there are no falls here—only exacting blows from unexpected angles.” Resident Advisor. “What’s most exceptional about Beneath’s work, as summed up on this latest release, is how clear-cut his genre influences are and yet how difficult to tie down it is to perhaps one easily boxed-in sub-genre or scene. Sure, it’s built with sound systems in mind - Ben describes it himself as “awkward self-indulgent sound system music - but to go any further would seem a disservice to music that is actively and very successfully pushing at the confines of what we expect from functional club music.” The Quietus.

‘That’s What Friends Are For’ once again shows how much drama Adesse can build into a track. Think back to those twelves from the dons of dancefloor tension - Ron Trent, Carl Craig, DJ Duke and Murk - music built for a world where the lights never come back on.

No Bad days is back for round 2. ‘In The Galleria’ slides in with dreamlike pads and a real euphoric feel to the whole track. Just right for those Balearic sunsets. Second on the A side is ‘Celestial Bodies’ - a melodic freestyle jam that makes us feel like we’re down at the arcade playing ‘Out Run’ on a dusty mega drive.
Over to the flip we start off with the title track, ‘Lunar Waves’ beginning with a tougher feel it hints at a hardware acid workout... but half way in Roberto hits you with those dreamy pads again and just has us in his hands for that synth solo at the end! Rounding off the EP perfectly is ‘When U Come Around’, a real ‘end of summer sitting down at the park with your mates’ kind of track...mmm..
Release Date: September 2016
He might be an architect by profession, but in his spare time Spanish producer Jaime Tellado sets forth his work with the construction of groove and the design of soundscapes.

With his ‘Some Fun’ EP, once again showcases his well-structured yet wild-flowing melodic groove, combining deep bass with an ambient touch.
