Premiere: Concealed Identity – Disclosure

Sparse atmospheres and rumbling sub characterise a heavy-hitting halftime number with smatterings of conspiracy-theory dialogue for extra flavour. Precise and deadly!

Premiere: Bassment – Split (Displaced Paranormals Remix)

Portuguese imprint Counterpoint Recordings are back this month with a remix EP and we’ve got the exclusive on London production duo Displaced Paranormals’ take on Bassment’s Split. The new remix retains the distinctive bass growls of the original while flipping the subterranean halftime groove into a tech roller more than worthy of a club dancefloor. Crispy!

Premiere: Brakken – Defiance One EP

We’ve got a bumper Premiere today as we present the first Soundcloud clips of the brand new EP from Brakken for Tech Itch Recordings! Currently shrouded in mystery all we know about Brakken so far is that he is a old warrior of the scene operating under a new identity; doubtless time will reveal the artist’s former aliases, but for now all we have is the beats.

Said beats are impressive indeed and fans of the dark-edged techstep sound will definitely find plenty to enjoy here; from the deep, rolling reese bass of Shadow Art through the industrial-tinged halftime of In My Room, out into the 90s style ‘headz-y vibes of Shaper Scratch and finishing up with moody stepper Let Go, this is clearly the work of an artist with deep roots in the scene and plenty of ideas to explore. Sick stuff!

The Defiance One EP is available to buy right now from the Tech Itch Recordings website where you can also find full previews of the EP via their new members area. Vinyl fans will also be pleased to know that the label are prepping a limited edition 12″ run for the EP; head over to Bandcamp to pre-order that (expected to ship around August 1st).
