Daniel Heinrich About His Choice:
I chose float records because I’m a big fan of the style of TWR72. His label always brings new interesting tracks to the public, which in my opinion deviates from the standard of techno. I like the detailed music which creates a trippy atmosphere. I also love to put fast driving tracks in my sets and the music of Float Records offers many tracks that are over 135 Bpm fast. Every release on this label is very interesting and sound professionally produced. The driving sounds create an energy which runs through the whole set. Another reason why I chose Float Records is that a lot of my favorite artists such as Altinbas, Jeroen Search, Endlec, Legau or Tensal have released on this label

 

Tracklist:
01. TWR72 – Colloquial (TWR72 Remix)
02. TWR72 – Reflect (Myk Drill Remix)
03. TWR72 – Deform (Linear Version)
04. Nezan – Rotor (Jeroen Search Remix)
05. Altinbas – Intonation

Andrés Acosta About His Choice:
I felt full of concentration and energy with the first time “The Walk” song; then I decided to go through the whole library of the label and I was captivated by their magnificent combination of raw-industrial sounds with an admirable versatility of deep and strong kicks. T/W\B offers to me the possibility to establish authentic atmospheres in RAVES, in which the intensity and darkness work together to impose a rule of intimacy, integration and respect between the public in the dancefloor.

Eònan About His Choice:
OK OK OK – I do love industrial and EBM too BUT my heart really beats for deep, dark and melodic Techno.

Bastinov is a shining new artist in this particular manner. His tracks are coming with rich synths playing mysterious melodies and drums pushing it with a nice drive.

Within an optimal mixing procedure iʼve put together his most banging tracks of the last 3 years.

If we say Techno is music – Bastinov is best proof for this assumption!

[NovaFuture Blog Exclusive Mix]: Wallis plays Perc Trax

 

DJ:
Wallis

 

About the concept:
Here is the forty-second instalment of our series “abc plays xyz”.

Find links to all instalments at our overview. Today we present you Wallis’s mix of tracks released on Perc Trax.

 

About Wallis:
Wallis is a techno producer and DJ based in Berlin. She is deeply interested in powerful atmospheric noises in relation to mesmerizing melodies and distorted sounds.

Her music is a combination of unapologetic merciless rhythms, modular heat and field recordings, warmly merged together through rough dynamic transitions.

“I like my techno to be brutal, 90% of the time”

Her first vinyl release will come out in your local record store in June.

 

About Perc Trax:
Perc Trax was launched in 2004 as a vehicle for Perc’s own productions and over the years has evolved into one of the must check imprints for those with an interest in rough-edged electronic music. Under Perc’s careful guidance Perc Trax has developed a core roster of artists including Truss, Sawf, Forward Strategy Group and of course Perc himself with heavyweights such as Ancient Methods, Richard H. Kirk, Marcel Fengler, Factory Floor and Chris Carter appearing regularly on remix duties. Initially the label prided itself on being judged solely on its musical output but regular collaborations with designer Jonny Costello, starting with Perc’s ‘Wicker & Steel’ album, has seen the label become regarded as one the most visually innovative in its field.

The label has won Resident Advisor’s renowned label of the month title and has been the subject of a feature in the Guardian newspaper in June of 2012, a rarity for a label with such an uncompromising sound. The label’s releases are respected for both their experimental edge and their dancefloor power, leading to Perc Trax showcases regularly being promoted around the world from Tokyo to New York and across Europe.

The move to album releases that started in 2009 has seen Perc Trax reach more people than ever before and the launch of two sub-labels in 2013 (Submit and Perc Trax Ltd.) has allowed a wider range of artists including London acid hero Matt Whitehead and industrial legends Einstürzende Neubauten to join the Perc Trax family.

In 2014 Perc Trax celebrates its tenth year of releasing music, a period that has seen 70 vinyl releases and 6 albums across its three labels. To celebrate this milestone Perc Trax will be releasing three EPs of new tracks as well as a double CD compilation including Perc’s first commercially available mix cd. The label will also be embarking on another international tour, climaxing with Perc Trax’s biggest London event to date at the start of 2015.

Wallis About Her Choice:
Perc Trax is for me one of the strongest techno labels out there. The music is always super harsh and hefty, yet the label displays a real diversity, and each record is unique in its own way. The balance between extremely distorted sounds and the sharpness techno needs is in my opinion perfectly achieved, and the sound design is always on point. When building a DJ set, I usually have to restrain myself from playing too many tracks from them, so this seemed like the perfect occasion to really let go.
