Released 11th May
Pressing of 300 copies in special silver sleeve. Transcendent records is proud to present a new immersive cinematic techno release by a French producer who goes under the name of Ersatz Olfolks. Some might already know him from previous releases on Singular Records and Cheap. For a producer with only two records behind him we think he already has a bright voice within the overcrowded musical techno landscape. Heliopolis is the city of the sun and was the theological center of the greatest sun temple of pharaonic times. The sunrays bring brightness but we also find ourselves in the darkest ominous shades of an eclipse. We were instantly captivated by his contra dictionary sound that is filled with subtle harmonic distortions and sophisticated melodic and evolving modular patterns. Heliopolis EP is a careful selection of works recorded during live sessions.

Release Date: 3rd November 2017
A new transmission from the Pasadena Oceanlab by Versalife. The start of a new saga where he explores the boundaries between electro romantic sounds and glitchy idm percussions. Tracks that have already been highly sought after since his live performance at Boilerroom in Doornroosje, Nijmegen earlier this year. A few people might have heard this release in an already legendary dj set by Objekt during the Freerotation festival this year. More parts are on their way.
