Chris Fortier – Leadwave EP // 530D002

Buy on Beatport

530Techno, a boutique record label based in rural Northern California drops their second release, the Leadwave EP from legendary producer/DJ Chris Fortier. With Leadwave, Fortier crafts a masterpiece of dark, raw and uncompromising analog techno. The Full On Mix is a peak time affair designed for summer outdoor sound systems and sweaty underground warehouses.

Unleaded, strips back the synths revealing the deep bass and builds a haunting minimal workout for the clubs.  On remix duties, we have one of the hottest rising stars of house music, Sishi Rosch (Digital Delight/Sultry Vibes). The Barcelona based dj/producer transforms Unleaded it into a sick acid house groover with his trademark dose of 118 bpm sleaze.

The Leadwave EP oozes analog warmth and asks to be played loud!
