Hermans – Dirt Urchins EP // 530D014 – Out Now

Buy on Beatport

Deep, raw and intoxicating cuts of heady house and bass-line driven techno come curtesy of Toronto’s Hermans (Extended Play, SubTrak) on their debut EP.

Dick Diamonds and Max The Fax, the founders of the Late & Deep parties in Toronto have crafted a unique sound fusing detroit style techno with raw psychedelic acid house riffs. We deliver this massive EP to you from some of the best talents from the Deep North!

Hot off the heels of his new full length for Thoughtless Music, Berlin based Deepchild (Thoughtless, Trapez) is enlisted to remix The Inescapable Shade. His unavoidable dub takes things up a notch by adding some heavy futurism, angular attititude and vocal samples for surefire dancefloor destruction. Deep North resident Sean Roman (Hot Waves, Molotov21) brings the heat with his remix of The Inescapable shade opting for a more jackin brand of futuristic deep house. Finally, Murr (New Kanada, 530Techno) turns in a beautifully haunting remix of Dirt Urchins perfect for long virtual trips to the outer stratosphere. In the grand dub tradition, Murr layers sound upon sound and melody into a cacophany of whispers, bells and found sounds for your aural pleasure.

Murr – Yellow Tape feat. Rosina // 530D013 – OUT NOW

Buy on Beatport

Rising Toronto producer Murr (New Kanada, DNH) delivers his first EP for 530Techno after several previous remixes. On “Yellow Tape” he works with long time vocal collaborator Rosina Kazi for a strong original that conjures visions of the blippier, more romantic side of techno.

Remixes come courtesy of Vancouver techno and visual arts duo The Automatic Message, Seattle electro artist 214, and the on fire Toronto duo Hermans for a release that really brings the dark, underground heat to the summertime dance floor.

The original contains a mysterious, almost impenetrably cool sheen capped with a sub rattling bass line to shake the floor.  Rosina’s vocals float in on gossamer waves of ethereal bliss that gives the track a very distant, emotional tint. The haunting string melodies on top are gorgeous in both deepness and somberness, lending themselves to a soulful but melancholic feel overall.

The Automatic Message (From 0-1, Kalimari) cranks the original to eleven and turns it in to a full-bore Sheffield-style chunk of techno. This is peak hour starkness for techno DJs who like to bring the big heat.  The duo deftly ties together the cinematic leanings of the visual work with a blistering industrial influence that is impossible to ignore

Seattle artist 214 (Hypercolour, Fortified Audio) creates post-modern electro beats for his remix. It’s a nice blend of the modern Detroit sound with tasty analog vibes and the retro soulful template disseminated by the genre’s forefathers. 214 taps in to that age-old spirit but avoids the retro pitfalls with futuristic sound collage melodies that are simply twisted.

Toronto duo the Hermans (Extended Play, The Deep North) provide a wicked b-side blast of oft-kilter, bass line heavy tech-house for the final remix. An undulating, driving pulse anchors this track as it syncopates the beats and mixes up the rhythms to keep things fresh and lively. Other elements here are muted and dubby for a radical retake of the original that is provides a suitable conclusion for a genre busting EP.

Selected DJ Support

Andrew Grant (Circo Loco, DC10 / Ibiza)

VA: Lateral Excursions 01 // 530D012 – Out Now

Buy on Beatport

D.I.Y. record labels have transformed and multiplied into something far cooler, less bottom line driven; more like a curated tour through the label founder’s mind. Sometimes these excursions are dull, unfocused, or even worse – hopelessly pandering to a commercial audience that doesn’t even exist. Others seem to understand the artform and have driven it to new heights, so while some may talk of pop stars choking out the little guy in America’s suddenly very lucrative dance music market, it’s been these countless unsung heroes from the underground who have built the backbone of this much larger success.

One of the more exciting stories rising up from these depths in the past year has been that of 530Techno, the tenacious little upstart label of Northern California DJ/producer Symbio. Divorced from all influences other than those from so afar they seem foggy and nearly inscrutable and those nearby, a mish-mash of the juvenile radio-friendly pabulum and past tense musics that foreigners are constantly berating the US dance music scene for in one media diatribe after another these days.

To stand alone is a difficult thing, no safety in numbers, just self-reliance and a will to survive and prosper no matter what. In the face of such adversity, 530Techno has not only survived but thrived with crucial tracks and remixes from a broad stroke of well-known talents all over the world and even back home in the remote 530 (area code). Many of the top international DJs have supported the label at one time or another with DJ charts, radio mixes, and podcasts – the love has definitely been there since day one for the little label that could – it’s been a humbling experience, to say the least, and now one worthy of a little celebration.

Lateral Excursions 01 explores the philosophical aspect of the label – the Zen koan – lateral thought. There is a sense of “knowing”, both body and mind, that is expressed between these grooves on this compilation. These tracks are all unreleased, alternate remixes culled from the labels biggest releases of the past year – Angel Alanis. Chris Fortier, Ivan Dbri & Wirik, JAK & LilRoj, Jon McMillon, Pointbender, and Sishi Rösch all representing the established, Local artists are also well-represented in the likes Daxophonics, Lady Blacktronika, Oilpanic, Stunp, Symbio, and the enigmatic Ribbon Tweeter Worship. There is even a lone newcomer from Poland, REP-CAK, who is about as lateral thought as an artist can get.

This is a gift, a thanks for your support, and the perfect way to kick off year two for such an exciting label.

Oilpanic – CIMMN EP // 530D011 – OUT NOW

Buy on Beatport

Northern California based dj/producer Hjalmar Hake (aka OILPANIC) returns with his second EP for 530Techno entitled CIMMN (Carl Is My Middle Name).

Lush, big room vibes and summer psych rhythms pervade both original tracks neither of which fall easily within commercial genres of dance music.  Always pushing the boundaries, Hjalmar’s music is a good mirror of his personal character, being at once original, warm and rooted in nature as well as cosmic and visionary. No other sound has been so influential in crafting the 530Techno imprint as Oilpanic’s lateral thinking take on electro, techno and house. For this very special EP, we enlisted two of our heroes of electronic music to provide remixes for Carl Is My Middle Name.

Brendon Moeller (aka Beat Pharmacy, Echologist) kicks out the big room jam with a conjuring of Ozric/CAN vibes over block rocking beats and analog sounds. Perfectly suited for the summer festival circuit, Brendon’s Acid Dub reminds us, the future is now!

J Hunsberger (Cynosure, Mule Electronic, Audiomatique) strips CIMMN down to its essentials and turns in a beautiful reconfiguration of the CIMMN synths while keeping the spacey vibe of the original. Impeccable production and an appreciation for fine detail, J Hunsberger’s Hawaiian Island Re-Rub feels like ocean waves lapping up at you on a warm summer day.

Download 530Techno // pod:011 – mixed by lilroj

about lilroj //  The musical career of Roger Vellion aka LilRoj began in Louisiana, where at the age of 15 he began experimenting with turntables and electronic music. In 1994, at the age of 18 he broke into the nightclub scene, and two years later the New Orleans Rave scene. Early gigs included Freebass Society events at the State Palace Theatre, known as the epicenter of music and culture in New Orleans, as well as many large mid 90′s warehouse parties in major cities like Houston and Memphis. He continued to be a staple in the Southern scene up until 2002, when he moved to Portland, Oregon. In Portland, Roj established himself as a top local talent and began to refine his sound, focusing on funky, bass-heavy techno and minimal. He also began expanding his passion for electronic music production. In 2008 Roj began working with fellow Portland artist JAK, becoming a key remixer and producer for the SubSensory label. Roj now helps manage the label as well as SubSensory’s monthly event: STATIC.   web / facebook / soundcloud
