Forward Stategy Group, Unbalance, Dimi Angélis and Binny on the next Ravage White Series

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.

Title: Liturgical Hymns Remixes
Format: 12” VINYL + digital
Label: Ravage White Series
Catalogue: RWS004

B1: Oxygen Swamp (As Patria remix)
B2: Back in my Amnesia (Samuli Kemppi remix)
B3: Theological Explanation (Tadeo remix)

 

 

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.

Played and supported by: Laurent Garnier, DVS1, Marcel Dettmann, Rødhåd, Dax J, Chris Liebing, Speedy J, Shifted, Kr!z, Henning Baer, Freddy K, Francois X, Svreca, Terence Fixmer, Norman Nodge, Cassegrain, Etapp Kyle, Antigone, Electric Indigo, Developer, Subjected, Jonas Kopp, Jeroen Search, DJ Hyperactive, Eric Cloutier, Drumcell, Truncate, Takaaki Itoh, Sandrien, Colin Dale, Nihad Tule, Tensal, Exium, Dimi Angelis, Amotik, PVS, Benjamin Damage, Samuel L Session, Vincent Neumann, Juho Kusti, Claire Morgan, Aiken, Volte-Face, Wrong Assessment,  Joachim Spieth, Donor, Alfredo Mazzilli and more.

Forward Strategy Group on the next Ravage Black Series 002

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.

Release Date 27 February 2018 – 12″ Vinyl / Digital

Ravage White Series 002

Out Now On Vinyl – Ravage White Series 002

Artist: Głós
Title: Filling The Night With Scars
Format: 12” VINYL ONLY
Label: Ravage White Series
Catalogue: RWS002
Release Date: 1 September 2016
Distribution: 712 Distribution – Berlin

Tracklist:
A1: Through Limbs & Wires
A2: From Below All Heavens
B1: Filling The Night With Scars
B2: Protector

Filling The Night With Scars, the new release by our mainstay Głós marks the second installment on the Ravage White Series label. At the core of this release, Głós seems to build bridges between his ambient side on one hand and his thumping club music side on the other hand. Especially the A-side covers the clubbier rhythmic vibe whilst the B-side conveys the more emotional vibe. Like in the title track, he builds slowly and smoothly but he stays very precise in which acidic sounds come and fade. With this release, he finds a balance between the nostalgic anthem-like euphoria and a more darker and deeper narrative.

Played and supported by: Chris Liebing, Inigo Kennedy, Freddy K, Kr!z, Developer, SHDW, Fabrizio Lapiana, Anetha, Pacou, Shlømo, Vincent Neumann, Yuka, Philippe Petit, Synthek, Arnaud Le Texier, Abstract Division, NX1, Juho Kusti, Aiken, Exium, Mary Velo, Takaaki Itoh and more.
