It’s a pleasure to announce møziz‘s debut double LP titled ‘E-møtion: Time Machine + Cycles’ is landing on Montréal’s Collection Disques Durs imprint this March (26th March 2021). 
 
The double album of nineteen tracks is a truly avant-garde electronic music journey that puts out together electronics with elements from genres such as ambient, R&B, and more. Find full details below.
 
møziz, a Montréal-based artist originating from the Ivory Coast, is a self-taught polymath whose work explores the delicate balance between settings, cultures, and fashion. Stretched generously across a double LP, the artist delivers a mammoth nineteen track journey for his debut album ‘E-møtion: Time Machine + Cycles’.
 
Across the LP, møziz demonstrates his ability to distil his influences into emotive, engaging, and varied electronica, as exemplified on ‘Fallingisgrowing’, which sees vivid claps and flanged shakers shine through a bed of dynamic synthesis and vocal slices.
 
‘I composed this song in April 2019, and since then so many evolutions have taken place. In the beginning, the song was called \”fall\”. With more learning and experience, I reopened the project during the first lockdown in 2020. I\’m used to exploring different palettes of emotions. The emotions that come out in this song emerged during a period of recession that we all experienced around the world.’ – ​møziz
 
Elsewhere on the release, from the shuffling and crisp opener ‘Humankind’ to the closing vocoder laced number ‘Let it go’, møziz’s skill for crafting profoundly warm and personal music is abundant across all nineteen tracks.
 
By bringing together disparate elements from genres such as ambient, R&B, and more, møziz provides a wide-ranging yet laser-focused sonic palette for his debut LP, providing ample proof of unique and multi-faceted talent to watch closely.
 
møziz ‘E-møtion: Time Machine + Cycles’ drops on Collection Disques Durs on 26th March. Lead single ‘Butterflyeffects\’ is out on 19th March.
 
Founded in 2018 in Montréal, Courage Holdings is an artist management and production company that curates Piknic Electronik and Igloofest. With their new record label Collection Disques Durs, Courage now reinvents itself, focusing its efforts towards artistic content production.

Have you listened before to the music released in the labe TUTU, if you haven\’t, this is a good time to meet this very modest proposal, a platform for artists with a different mindset and simple at the same time, without taboos or egos, this platform is always seeking for Techno music with style and personality adapted to changing times.
 
The next release on the label is Edgar de Ramon’s long play debut album which has been produced during lockdown between Barcelona and the Ebro Delta. The album titled ‘De Tu a Tu’ is set to be released on March 8th, 2021 trough TUTU. Read below the full story and listen to the track titled ‘Edgar De Ramon – Rave Again
 
 
Through its 8 tracks, De Tu a Tu evinces a social culture still based and impregnated by the foundations of colonialism, which prevents us to move forward to plural and different world, free of borders and excessive control eagerness. There is no space for reflection in this era of frenetic digital revolution framed in a society of fierce consumption. Our data is coveted for their trade to keep on feeding a capitalist system that can even afford to tell us what to watch on TV (does Netflix sound familiar?). The globalization of poverty. In front of this call for and alienated integration, we should rise up by going for what is different and loving it. De Tu a Tu.
 
The cinematic-like New Territories serves as an introduction from an ambient vision of Edgar de Ramon’s countersigning techno sound. With I Love the Difference everything is exposed. From its first bass beat, it urges us to wake up from the Covid-19 increased lethargy and to dance, with a clear message: love the difference, it will make you free. Flying Data also digs into the premise of not allowing anything to influence our vital decisions, especially those related to consumption.
 
In Constant Movement, one sees Detroit all over, although the iron landscape of Birmingham can also be appreciated through a sharp cut of brawny techno that progresses among blinding metallic hints, a true bomb in the dance floor. Edgar de Ramón shows us his absolute mastery in all techno registers with Deeper Underground, where the vast intertwines the underground and the result is another anabolic superb release containing voices that mutate every beat.
 
Contemporary Practices dives into the idea that, nowadays, contemporary implies some risks, experimentation and constant transformation. Its gliding melody is achieved with a last-generation modular synthesizer and it evolves constantly through the whole song with no apparent pattern. Relative Time starts with a bass beat in the form of a hammer ready to smash bad consciences and stir rebel bodies. The echoes of Sci-fi tech on it conspire to have us look into our inner cosmos, imagining the future.
 
Finally, with Rave Again, the DJ and producer encourages us to break through the general alienation to make our hopes come true. Among them, of course, dancing and hugging again until dawn. Acid, funny, and typical from the nineties, echoing those raves that made us so happy once.
 
De Tu a Tu is dedicated to Edgar De Ramon’s family and friends. Special Thanks to Josep Vidal, Aleix Jaramillo & Alfred Calvet. Tracks Deeper Underground, Relative Time, Flying Data & Rave Again mixed at Gimeno Studio, Spain. Mastered at Perla Audio – Mixing & Mastering Studio, Germany.

Review: With ‘Liber Secretus’, Christian Hornbostel showcases, -in my personal opinion-, some of his finest tunes done. Since the very beginning of the LP, with the intro track ‘Synchronia et Diachronia’, until the outro, ‘Sapere Aude’, this albums never aparts from its banging techno groove, while the producer, track by track, explores a wide and elegant range of hypnotic and surrealistic beats, that conform a sophisticated structure of sound for this album divided in 14 outstanding track. Great album.

Review: With ‘The Beauty And The Sea’, Steve Rachmad exteriorizes a feeling and a modern sound, very proper of his productions.  With this album, Rachmad drives the listener in a clear highway of eight beautiful tracks, each one with their own history, compiling at the end, a perfect established progression of luxury music based on electronic, ambient, classical, and hip-hop rhythms. The intensity and delicacy of electronic music mixed with feelings, makes each of the tracks an essential sonic odyssey, that for sure gives a proper welcome to the concept that combines music and journalism. Excellent!
