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.

The first release on [199X] is from a musician born in Zürich, Switzerland who’s name is Mateo Hurtado. For the last 2 years Hurtado has been posting tracks and live improvisations on Youtube and Soundcloud made with his modular and hardware gear as well playing all over Europe.

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 !
