Press Info:
Geneva’s Opuswerk provides the second release on newly launched techno label Bipolar Disorder, with remixes from Inland and Antigone.

Having appeared on Semantica and ARTS, as well as Dement3d (as HISS:1292 alongside François X), Swiss producer Opuswerk is a formidable name within today’s techno scene and has received regular support from names such as Dr Rubinstein, Daniel Avery, DVS1, Anthony Parasole, Peter Van Hoesen and Donato Dozzy.

Joining the release on remix duties, Counterchange founder Ed Davenport adopts his Inland guise alongside a separate outing from Parisian techno stalwart Antigone to form a solid four track techno package.

Syncopated drums and a rumbling low-end introduce the murky sounding ‘Extensum’ as scintillating synths increasingly permeate the mix. Inland reimagines it, introducing his recognisable polished percussion and deep atmospheric nuances. ‘Spatium’ uses otherworldly melodies and ominous effects for a mesmerising aesthetic from start to finish until Antigone’s energetic reinterpretation twists and distorts the original to conclude the release in style.

Press Info:
Monnom Black is proud to present BODY MUSIC – the new album from legendary electronic artist,Thomas P. Heckmann!

Thomas P. Heckmann is a man who needs little introduction. The German producer has flexed his prowess across all shades of electronic music, but it’s his contributions to EBM-Techno, Acid, Industrial and Experimental that has earned him his notoriety, and it was in 1994 when he dropped an acid-tinged ‘Amphetamine’ as DRAX LTD. II that shot him into being recognised as a power to be reckoned with.

For the production of BODY MUSIC, Heckmann has utilised 30 years worth of acquired knowledge to create a hard-hitting album which bears all the grit Heckmann is renowned for. Harmonising analogue and digital wares to create an utterly immersive album over the course of 14 tracks.

Tracks such as Provide the Future, Bloody Vacant and Zeitmaschine are prime examples of how TPH can bring forth his charismatic productions into the contemporary techno climate, whilst sealing each track with his signature stamp. His vast knowledge of modular and analogue syntheses teamed with his ability to build tension proves optimal in BODY MUSIC’s storytelling. The album’s mission statement is simple: “Connecting the future with the past.” Tracks such as EBM3 start off where Thomas left off back in the early 2000s – sequels to EBM1 and EBM2.

The LP will be presented over three slabs of vinyl, with the album covering significant ground in techno, EBM, acid and electro (and many chasms in between). BODY MUSIC is a prime example of why TPH has remained so in demand and relevant over the years – and now more than ever Body Music will be made available on Triple Vinyl, CD & Digital. A 3-track EP album teaser will be released in February 2018, and will be followed by the full triple LP in March 2018.

Info:
Only few labels understand to merge Techno as a part of Berlin’s DNA with a fine sense for unforgettable compositions into an energetic and innovative production like Vault Series does. The tracks released the label are made to get stuck in your head, while the atmosphere and their technical finesse leave you slack-jawed from astonishment. Through releases of artists like Escape to Mars, Mistake Made, Sawlin and particularly label owner Subjected, the label plays a significant role in the techno business on a global level.

The newly introduced sub-label Vault Series Lost Gems will be dedicated to productions which are not part of a curated release, like an EP or an album. Instead the tracks will be released as rough diamonds, which have once gotten lost on a hard drive and have been rediscovered, standing strongly for themselves.

When given to Subjected, those unique gems instantly fascinated him and became part of his favored sets, but then were forgotten in face of the large quantity of today’s releases. Now the Lost Gems have surfaced and will finally be presented.

„Same Soul“ a project by the Italian producer MTD develops from a contrast of a rumbling and deep underground bassline to chipper, cheerful bleeps and explosive tension.

In „Dirty Mirror“ Mistake Made places a fine-tuned drumming into the center of the track. The enormous power of this element translates vastly into a dynamic liveliness. The dark and suggestive soundscapes are being well balances by a short, but soulful chord-sequence.

With his remix of Kevin de Vries´ „Seraphim“ Subjected underlines the relentlessness that his work is well liked for. The distorted hi-hats are dominating the beat while synths are travelling through the layers of sound. Eventually the production centers its core in the brisk and pulsating bassline.

Valura through his Remix of Lifka´s “Mass” makes the final statement. A melodic track that builds its tension on whipping tribal grooves. Ready for departure, the screaming is fading away. The ships are casting off into the open sea and only moments later their majestic silhouettes disappear in dawn into the thick veils of fog.
