Following Induction’s Liturgical Hymns Remixes EP, Ravage is proud to announce the next release on their White Series. It’s a various artists release, containing tracks produced by artists who are very close to the label. Hence, it’s title: Familiar Affairs.
A1. sees the return of Forward Strategy Group, with their track Pet a Burning Dog. It’s hard not to think ‘Sandwell District’ when first laying ear on this minimalistic beauty. Bleeps, screeches and haunting synth-work with some outstanding rhythm laying underneath. Following on A2 we have Unbalance picking up the pace with his track Hard Solutions; a track very true to its name. Atmospheric, yet with a healthy dose of punch.
Kicking off his favourite position on the record, on B1 we’ve got Dutch techno legend Dimi Angélis. He produced a self-proclaimed “Acid Bomb” which goes by the name of Tarazed. We dare you not to dance when this one hits the floor. Closing off the EP is Liverpool based artist Binny, who produced the wobbly-banger Relax. Proper techno from a man of whom you’d expect this kind of sound.

The Sheep’s Fall EP is the last result of DAHRAXT’s freaky mind.
In the opening track ‘Optomatick’ – recorded from one of his LIVE at Buttons party – as much as in “AffaR” he keeps that path of harmonic doughty rhythm, already shown through previous releases on his own imprints JTseries and PicNic34.
Headstrong big room techno pumping out loud, ‘The Alchemist’ drives forward relentlessly with its corpulent kick, looking back at the 90’s not with a sense of nostalgy, but with the consciousness of what we need to step into the future.
‘The Sheep’s Fall’ seeps a clear message: the most dangerous thing in life is an incompetent that has been given the chance to rules the world.
“The world needs a wakeup call, gentlemen” – cit.

PVS is an artist who is known for his solid productions on his own label H.omevvork’ (just to remind you of his masterpiece of four years ago ‘fuckin’ society’) and on the prestigious M_Rec Ltd label of Max_M who sadly passed away (R.I.P.), and KEY Vinyl.
After years of experience in his private life and professional life that involved travelling around Europe, he took a moment of break from the scene. Now he’s back and will release this own musical journey where he deeply expresses his personal musical maturity.
PVS developed an album where nothing has been produced randomly. The album can definitely be defined as a ‘techno album’, as is the general concept of KEY Vinyl – records that can be heard on the dance floor, but that can also be listened to at home.
Enjoy this album that shows 360° techno by PVS.

Induction’s Remix EP can be considered as a true Ravage family affair. The EP starts and ends with takes on Theological Explanation; Tadeo delivers an hypnotic version with a lot of drive, and – it may sound counterintuitive – Zadig dives into the deep as well, with an outstanding, euphoric and ethereal mix. Both tracks turn out to be quite true-to-self reworks of the offbeat original. On A2, Birth of Frequency altered the ambient intro Epitrachelion into a soft, melodic, functional electro track that oozes refinement and a bit nostalgic comfort.
The B-side starts with As Patria’s signature sound, giving a new interpretation to a previously unreleased production called Oxygen Swamp. Melancholic hisses, softly rattling hats and light synth-work all contribute to the overall feeling of their remix. The same goes for Samuli Kemppi, who took on Back in my Amnesia, giving it the ghetto-house-treatment, indulged with rave influences.
Release Date 20 April 2018 – 12″ Vinyl / Digital
