Berlin based producer ”Synthek” is a renowned name within contemporary Techno. Besides succesfully running his label Natch Records, he has been also a resident at the infamous Tresor.
For the seventeenth installment in the string of Attic Music releases, Synthek (Luca Landolfi) comes up with a staggering EP that contains a lot of adventurous drum patterns, bold arrangements and swells of daring FX.
On the A side we find ”Loser”, which is a brave cut of spherical yet moody techno that uses a buldging percussion line and otherwordly fx to create an ominous vibe. ”Uneven Mind” is an exotic cut with tough drum sounds that uses a hypnotic synth swell that cuts throughout to create an alarming atmosphere. French producer and Concrete resident Antigone comes up with an uplifting (eight minutes long) remix for ”Uneven Mind” on the B side which is beautifully orchastrated throughout.
”Faithless”is a percussive cut with intense FX blips.

In the artists own words :
Ignorance is sometimes a bliss, an attitude and a in this case, Ignørance is also a project.
These days – when it s more about name dropping, balling, image, airs and graces – it´s time for something different.
Ignørance is a dedication to bring back the focus just on music without the fuzz.
No shameless self promotion or boast.
This is why the artist behind the project wants to keep his name secret and you focused on the music and sound ☺
So enjoy the music and party on !
We love and release on Vinyl !

After the well received first EP “Belle Époque” Two Sided Agency continuous to deliver diverse and contemporary acidic techno tracks. The A-Side engages in a contemplative and cinematic journey. Characteristic 303 lines are the common thread of “Bonjour Tristesse”. The B-Side provides haunting rave ready material for techno stomping grounds. Visually the ongoing collaboration with graphic designer Lena Lüem takes on a minimalist post-punk aesthetic partially indebted to the legacy of swiss graphic design.

LISTEN 1 minute of the B1 by Violet Poison:
Drone Division, a project started in 2015, does not concentrate on a person itself but rather focuses on a disembodied persona generated by abstract electronic sounds.
This pulls the listener into a dark mood, allowing him to let go, constantly getting caught in a dense energetic bubble. Extensive tension curves, slowly rising up to their explicit climax, discharge in their origin, while a combination of experimental soundscapes float over an unwavering kick foundation.
The unusual interplay between noisy synth structures and rattling percussive elements bears the complete sonorous mania: always luring, but never fully redeeming itself.
Storytelling is an often forgotten virtue in electronic music. This story right here is about the future, about the fragile love between man and machine.
A vision that becomes audible.
Distorted Perception 008 by Drone Division will be available as Digital

Asteroid Records is back, decimating the speakers, crash-landing onto the dancefloors, wreaking havoc and so on. The fifth record in the digital catalog sees label’s originator Blasted taking a highly experimental approach to production, trying out irregular time signatures and breaking the notions of pace in order to achieve an output whose purpose is pure rhythmic originality.
Opener Satellite goes off-the-charts crazy with a near-gabber tempo, while UFO provides some space for contemplation with atonal melancholy, as follower Genesi lets the playful acid drip through every second of the piece, and lastly, Andromeda sees the subwoofer-threatening bass being crossed with suspensefully speeding stabs and cold ambiance. Empyrean and Alhek then provide their more straightforward, instantly effective techno reworks of Satellite and UFO respectively, while Blurred Boy offers an EMB-leaning, slow-paced remix of Genesi.
