Well, this is definitely an stellar post, its dedicated once again in this blog, to one of the labels that recently has been launching good batches of incredible techno music. Let\’s talk about the latest release on Modularz Records, the label based in the United States, runed by the techno legend \”Developer\” and friends.

Modularz is a label that knows pretty well their music appetite, and has been promoting their unique and very own style of techno music for more than 10 years. Basically, if you have a good taste on techno music, not the regular, you will recognize that the Modularz sound it\’s a special one, prove of that, is their next release, the \”Nuit blanche EP\”, a 5-track EP delivered by the French native dj and producer Paul Ritch, what a bomb right.

This EP showcases those rhythmic bouncing basslines and deep riding kick drums we all know and love, complemented with a mental madness background created in a good deep and dark techno atmosphere of rhythms. Listen below to the upcoming music and stay tuned becase this release is set to be out on September 27th, 2019 in vinyl and digital format.

Listen to Modularz 44 // Nuit blanche EP // By Paul Ritch on Soundcloud.

Overview. Modularz is back once again with a stellar release, this time from gargantuan producer Paul Ritch. The French native is here to deliver five tracks of pulsating techno, breed for the club and another project that adheres to the flagship. The Modularz sound has become so distinct, and this EP showcases those rhythmic bouncing basslines and deep riding kick drums. 
Nuit Blanche is five tracks (one being a bonus track) of punchy dancefloor driving kick drums that are coupled with eccentric modulations and synths. Expect underground crevice hidden chords, deep textured and dripping sounds. Some cuts deliver sci-fi alien beeps and stabs that would make any martian jealous. The hi-hats are icy and the snares hype inducing: no matter the pace each cut is a weapon.
Nuit Blanche is out at the end of September, both on vinyl and digitally under the Modularz imprint.

Well people! It\’s time to discover Niño Árbol and his own label, Ssensorial.  I had always said it, Mexico is a country that has everything, but in the specific point that got us here, i mean, music, Mexico is on another level of talent and creativity. 

And that can be confirmed, for example, when you talk about artist like Kevin Martínez AKA Niño Árbol, a producer born in Guadalajara México. His talent and tremendous vision as a dj and producer has taken Kevin always in the right spot, or at least, where he wants to be. Besides other acomplishments, he is on the Native Instruments roster as the main ambassador of the Maschine line product in México. Also since 2015 he is DJ resident of the mythic Bar Américas, but thats not all. 

Niño Árbol has been a cult hero in Mexico ever since his 2015 Boiler Room. Penetratingly visual with his laser red eyes and psychedelic Windows 95 like optic effects, it was a thoroughly infectious affair with a live set that combined clicks, beeps, dubs and rolls to dubious effect. The nefarious Guadalajara native has been on a tear ever since, heading his Ssensorial label and releasing under the likes of NEIN Records and Superfreq Records. 

As you can see, he is always working on something, in projects that somehow would end pleasing the ears of someone in the world, no doubt. 

But now, what got us talking about Niño Arbol, is his upcoming release on Ssensorial Records. Entitled \”Hypereactive-1\”, the release unveils 4 new tracks, that in a general review, represents a jewel of electronic music, of the acid genre, of the finest and sensory experimental techno music, also the cover art of this record is a surrealist piece of art. The elaboration and creativity for this music, was created with the right introspection and exploration and the use analog-electric instruments. So it\’s a very interesting proposal, that i\’m happy to recommend. Pre order: http://ssensorial.bandcamp.com/album/hypereactive-1-2

Tracks review.

The four-track raucous and mind-bending project crosses IDM, acid, and techno; and is imprinted under his Ssensorial label. You can expect some organic analog beats that are deep, pensive, and textured with wet expanding ripples and wistful synths.
\’Voyage\’ is a head-melting trip down a dark hole, only to have a peaceful interlude of gentle, sweet, serine keys which massages the ears and lifts the soul; as the mechanical churn of the four by four beats plugs you along.
\’Bruxismo\’ enters like a succession of fast hand gut punches. Quick percussions merge with an underlying rave synth, that slithers in and out but is juxtaposed by a xylophone. The melancholic keys dance around the harsh percussions, like the Beaty and The Beast waltz.
EP title track \’Hypereactive-1\’ is a dubious and sometimes brutal affair. Acidically tinged and with snappy drum patterns, it holds the fascinating layer that is omnipresent throughout the project: reckless beats that work in paradox with ethereal symphonies. 
The big finale is \’Bracing\’ with an odd combo of a slow like tempo but crashing percussions. A panoramic drone invades fluttering drum patterns. It heads towards a choir-like synth; the drum adds the velocity, but the keys hang then float away aimlessly, like unsuspecting dear catching sight of a human being.

The EP release date is scheduled to next month, in November 15th, 2019 in Vinyl and Digital formats via Sensorial Records. Stay tuned and have the joy to had discovered Niño Árbol and his own label, Sensorial. 

You can now listen HYPEREACTIVE – 1,  the label already uploaded the snippets to soundcloud.

Overview. Release that shows the evolution and sound maturity of Niño Árbol in relation to his introspection and exploration of analog-electric instruments. The result is a well-rounded EP with an original rhythmic base that leaves the paradigm of the traditional 4/4 metric, giving life to a new sound that‘ll serve as a turning point for Mexican Techno.
Bittersweet atmosphere and emotion that go from the profound to the dreamy, through forceful percussive and organic psychedelic texture.

It is Monday the 17th of December 2012 and we have Modeselektor for the very first time on the CLR Podcast. Instead of recording a mix with lots of their own highly popular productions, Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary who together form Modeselektor chose to record a 1,5 hours long studio mix, which exclusively features tracks from their acclaimed 50WEAPONS imprint. The set focuses mainly on artists who found their musical home at the label, like Anstam, Addison Groove, Bambounou, Benjamin Damage, Cosmin TRG, Phon.o and Shed. With Marcel Dettmann´s EP “Linux / El-Lipse”, which marks release number 25, 50WEAPONS has basically accomplished half of the undertaking, as the name stands for 50 releases – the self-determined lifespan of the label. If you would like to know more about the fascinating history of the outstanding, boundaries-breaking duo Modeselektor from Berlin, their tour-dates, labels and numerous exiting projects, please visit the following sites: Website Modeselektor facebook Modeselektor Twitter Modeselektor YouTube Modeselektor Google Plus Modeselektor Website 50WEAPONS facebook 50WEAPONS Twitter 50WEAPONS Google Plus 50WEAPONS
