transparent/black marbled Dub Techno V/A 12″ – feat. Quantec, Insect O., Frank Hellmond and Echo Inspectors
With ETUILTD005 “Translucent Tracks” we are presenting 4 new tracks from the deeper side of techno. We also welcome 3 new and established artists to our vinyl series.
Echo Inspectors‘ “Parable” opens the ep. With a great selection of warm sound elements and an analogue drum set, the Melbourne based duo made a fusion of Dub and Detroit Techno. It´s the sound we love from their releases on their own Primary [Colours] imprint as well as from our Etui Winter Camp Compilation.
Dub Techno genius Quantec, who already released on labels such as Echochord or Styrax, delivered a more down stripped track. His “Analogue Effusion” is based on delayed synth chords which get deeply modulated over a handful dry drums. When the bass kicks in, this turns into a dancefloor mover.
The b side starts with “The Clouds Above Us” by Etui Records label head Insect O. Filtered chords and short pads create a dreamy sound scape and built up the tension step by step. Shaped drums are giving the track that drive to work well on the dancefloor.
Frank Hellmond´s “True Lines” offers a deep house groove made of analogue drums and sweet synth loops. Rare vocal snippets are bringing in a kind Dub Techno feeling. The nice atmosphere of the track rounds it up.
Played & supported by Phil Kieran, Mihalis Safras, Davide Squillace, Noah Pred and many more
