Opera Mauve by Tektra Album Artwork

Somber atmospheric lo-fi from Tektra, brought to us by No Agreements as part of their Digital Series.

Influx EP, by Trastler

Russian producer Trastler brings us a beefy 5-Track project INFLUX

With brutally lush instrumentation each track bursts at the seams with rolling percussion and enveloping synths. Melodies and harmonies light the way as we wander the rhythmic landscape.

Excited to dig into this producers back-catalog, as this EP has been my go-to jam for the past week!

Acid Pasta EP, by Kontext

Struggling through hump-day?! Well give yourself a break with this dank re-release from Russian Techno Producer Kontext.

Acid Pasta EP was originally released February 21st, 2010, with some tracks being produced much earlier than that, however the project has aged quite well. Kontexts twisted vision of techno is robust on these 4 tracks, utilizing alien sounds and truly unique production on top of classic grooves.

‘Acid Pasta EP is not a brand new piece of work. It’s a best part of personal skill improvement I worked on at home studio in years 2005-2006. I wanted to find out if I could create something totally different from drum’n’bass and downtempo that I used to produce then. Something more about minimal 4×4 techno/house kinds of music.’ Kontext
