Press Info:
Following 11 hotly tipped EPs, Format now delivers its first compilation release, packed to the brim with bomb cuts from both veterans as new faces.

This first Format compilation is a prime example of the label’s signature sound. Featuring an impressive variety of musical perspectives, it’s a mint snapshot of Format’s ever adventurous view on techno.

Format lays down an impressive array of minimal-tinged and powerful dance floor techno laced with depth and atmosphere. There’s quite a lot to enjoy here to say the least; a very special appearance is made by legendary NY-producer Mike Parker, whose off-beat ‘Necklace Dancer’ perfectly reflects Format’s penchant for abstract techno. It nestles well among chunky four-to-the-floor material from various trusted label associates: ROD delivers a raw house-flavored banger on ‘Acine’, while TWR72’s ‘EXP19’ explores techno’s darker territories. Label curator, Juan Sanchez, also steps up to the game with ‘Warthog’, a high-octane piece of fiery techno that captures the man’s highly anticipated sound. Topping off, new label signees such as Mark Groot and Optics deliver intense cuts that already make us look forward to more of their studio output.

Format V.A. will be released on two separate vinyl releases, followed by a digital release featuring all nine tracks. The first 200 vinyl releases will be made available in transparent vinyl.

The release features artwork by DEFRAME, and is based on the refraction of light. It is meant to represent the illusion of a tiny hypnotic multiverse, where each plane exists in a different time and space.

This is the part of the digital edition.

Press Info (German Only):
Schon länger war Freddy K kein Geheimtipp mehr und wurde für Marathonsets u.a. im Berghain oder ://about blank abgefeiert.

Wir haben ihn zu diesem Zeitpunkt noch nie spielen gehört, jedoch ist sein Name oft gefallen; das Wissen um seine Rolle als wichtiger und umtriebiger Akteur der Szene und mehrere Empfehlungen von uns geschätzten Menschen bezüglich seiner besonderen Skills an den Decks, setzte eine besondere Neugier frei, die uns selbst nach unzähligen Stunden eigenem Dauerbetrieb pünktlich auf die Tanzfläche schob.

Oft wird man enttäuscht, wenn die Erwartungshaltung besonders hoch ist. Diesmal war es anders. Ohne an dieser Stelle weiter ins Detail zu gehen, stand schon während des Sets für uns euphorisiert fest: „Wir wollen Freddy auf der repetition.“

An diesem Tag knallte es mit gefühlten 42 Grad auf die Tanzfläche. Während man mich mittags nach dem langen Set überhitzt in den nahegelegen waldigen Schatten trug, hatte ich die Befürchtung aufgrund eines Hitzeschlags den Tag zu vergessen. Und so ist das Letzte was mir von diesem Tag bleibt eine hektisch-glücklich eingetragene Erinnerung in digitaler Form: „Freddy K buchen!!!“
Cut.

Mit Freddy K kommt der frisch gekürte ‚Raving Spoon‘ DJ des Jahres zur repetition und dieser goldene Löffel ist mehr als verdient. Seit Beginn der 90er ist Alessio Armeni aka Freddy K als DJ, Labelhead, Produzent, Techno-Aktivist und Raver aktiv. Und wir haben nicht den Eindruck, dass er müde geworden ist.

Press Info:
We are kicking off the label’s 20th anniversary with a new installment of our Etui Winter Camp. The compilation includes 11 tracks by new and old artists from all over Europe. Dresden based film sound artist Bony Stoev and Alex Tasso aka Submoon open the 4th edition of Etui Winter Camp with heart warming ambient tracks.

Echo expert Monomood dives deep into an ocean of chords with his “Fall” and label mind Insect O. takes you to the mystical “Forest Of The Monkeys”. After strolling around you find yourself lost in the soundscapes of El Choop’s “Narrow Pulse” and Infinitedub’s “Pulse Storm”. Bristol meets Malta. Not enough of chords? Screaming synths wake you up in Planetary Secret 90’s techno interpretation “Offshore Platform”. It’s time to move!

Alek S is no stranger to dub techno lovers around the world. His “Cream” sounds like dancing ice crystals. Leipzig based modular techno head Markus Masuhr experiments with hypnotizing drone sounds in his “Stages Of The Ocean” and Phil Baenz delivers some analog techno for the dancefloor with his “Isslag”. Finally made of CONCRETE label heads Rebar prove with their “Morning Routine” the best thing to do in a cold winter night is to dance your shoes off in the strobe lights of a techno club.

Founded by Oliver Hartmann (aka Insect O.) in 1998 Etui Records has been released 28 vinyl releases, 6 compilations and several digital only releases. In 2011 Etui started the new vinyl series Etui Low Tech Dub to focus on the deep and dubby side of techno and transfer it into an up-to-date audioframe.
