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.

For the second release on their Black Series, Ravage invited electronic music veterans Al Matthews and Patrick Walker to team up under their Forward Strategy Group moniker. The last release of these legends was quite a few years ago, but the wait was worth it. Their East Port Rangers EP kicks-off with Nine and One, a hypnotic, heavy-loaded stomper containing some uplifting, loopy vocals. Following is the most minimalistic track of the EP, Lisp Your Way, yet it still has a lot of substantial punch and lash to it.
The B-side starts off with heavy broken beats, combined with a classic rave sound, taking the listener back to the blistering sound of the nineties. Finally, the EP oozes down with the track In Abeyance; a haunting, down-tempo track with a melody to send shivers down your spine, which could be deemed a real creeper.

Future Déjà Vu is a Berlin based techno label. Behind such paradoxical definition of time lies an elementary objective: the promotion of a functional sound, able to be immediately usable on a techno-floor. The immediacy of the sound becomes in turn paradox itself and its plainness turns into power.becomes in turn paradox itself and its plainness turns into power.
