It has been quite a journey so far but we’ve only just started! We moved on to our fifth Soundtravels Recordings release and we proudly present “Point Of View part 1”. We have compiled six contemporary, electronic bombs from artists all around Europe.
For some we didn’t have to travel that far though…
The Hagues Baz Reznik provided us with “Nightdrive To Stuttgart”, a moody, sinister track with that typical raw Reznik sound and a melody that will stick in your head for days after you have first heard it.
Amsterdam based Arctic Boogie boss Endfest came up with another killer, “Von Heijden En Verre”. Almost ten minutes filled with moody synths and melodies, accompanied by an ever present, very sophisticated 303 which peaks halfway the track, shivers!
Our last, but not least, Dutch contributor is Rotterdam based Louis Guilliaume who you might know from several straight forward techno releases on various quality underground labels. “Promiscues” is a rough edged, energetic track which fits somewhere between Detroit techno and Dutch Westcoast elektronica. Early 2014 he will release the “Unknown Forces EP” (Soundtravels 007).
Okay, now we fly all the way over to Croatia for Chocolate Noir with “Futu.e Is B.ight”. A short but powerful EBM track with vocals from the man himself. Dark industrial mechanics accompanied by a threathening bassline, but no need to worry… cause Futu.e is B.ight!
Next stop… Düsseldorf. After discovering Dircsen’s tracks we definitely had to have him on board. The result of that can be heard on his astonishing “Aspiration EP” (Soundtravels 003). This guy keeps on producing his solid, high quality electronics and shows us his love for the TB 303 machine in a brilliant way. “Exist” is actually a downtempo dubtechno track but off course it has a fierce 303 all over it. Timeless again. In 2014 his second EP named “Acid Wheel EP” will be released (Soundtravels 008).
New to our family is the Russian Neotnas with “Rewind”. Typical for his sound is that warm, organic feel all over his house and dubtechno productions. Very often accompanied by female vocals and it’s almost like you hear somebody play a live instrument if you listen carefully. Early 2014 he will release his “Slow & Steady EP” (Soundtravels 006).
