Genre: Deep Techno
Futur[e]cho returns to the label once again for the 2016 installment. Pairing big named artists with up and comers in the Dub and Ambient Techno scene. This year’s release showcases a more modern sound in the world of Dub Techno and Ambient Techno. Fifteen tracks highlight the ever changing sound of Dub Techno, blurring the lines at times between Dub Techno and Ambient Techno. We are proud to be able to bring such talented artists together for another fantastic and mesmerizing release in the series.
After two successful EPs, Outward Roots is pleased to finally release their first LP titled “Moonlit Trees”.
Almost as if it came straight out of the 90s Techno scene alongside albums like AFX’s “Selected Ambient Works” & LFO’s classic “Frequencies”, this album combines lush soundscapes with stripped back, to-the-point drum patterns making this album minimal dance music in the purist form.
HiKE is a brand new artist to the label and brings his own brand of Dub Techno infused with field recordings from transit stations in Germany. In his own words:
Deutsche Bahn, means German railway and is also the name of the government owned company for train traffic in Germany.
The tracks on this EP are based on field recordings I have made on rail and subway stations in 4 German cities. Many of the sounds are made from mangling these samples.
The second release by Outward Roots showcases a minimal sound focused more on the Ambient side of the duo. Minimal beats flow in and out of this 3 track Ep and could almost be called entirely Ambient. Two different tracks highlight the ever changing sound ending with a Version track that removes the beat completely.
Our 2015 edition of Futur[e]cho brings in a lot of new faces, retains some old ones and has a great feel of atmospheric techno. Everyone went above and beyond what we thought possible for tracks and this release will for sure surprise you. Lots of artists try out new styles to entice the listener that the music can always change as time goes by. Futur[e]cho 2015 is more of a chilled out bliss release, but still very much fits the themes of the series. So why don’t you take a journey along with us?
Our 21st album on the label was the first solo release from Textural Being on the label. Combining an ever changing sound, this was a popular release on the label. Sage has always felt he could have done better on the mastering, so here is the official remaster of Proximity. The original release came with a bonus remix Ep, but that is not here.
The style of Orkus is one that changes quite a bit, but always retainssan ethereal sense about it with floating high pads, and driving beats. A chillout vibe can be gotten from most tracks on the release, most notably with the track Relax. Airport brings in a sense of Jazz to the mix while overall this is a chilled out Techno and Deep House release sure to please all who listen.
A collection of DeepWarmth remixes that showcase the vast styles of his remixing skills with 6 of his remixes. Starting off with an Owen Ni remix of the DeepWarmth track Status, the release then kicks into gear a chill vibe with the bp4 remix melting into a remix of the Coppice Halifax track Leaf Cloak, giving it a view of the Night before diving under the water for a spaced out remix of Tides pt, 1 from Textural Being along with a rainy evening remix of Experience. After ending with 2 Drone style remixes for Coppice Halifax, with a flare for Techno, and Zander One with the only fully Ambient remix to date to round things off.
Substak brings his unique brand of Deep Techno to the label pairing it with several tracks of Deep Dark Ambient in a release called Soundscaping Stories. Minimal Beats over Darkness coupled with Deep Darkness of Ambient brings a chilling vibe to our 56th release. A prolific producer who keeps releasing on many different labels, we are very honored to have a release.
Liquid Level graces the label with 5 Deep Dub Techno tracks to chill with. Static chords and slick basslines are the mainstay of this release along with a very polished production quality. Dub Techno fans alike will love this release and those who haven’t heard of him will be in for a pleasant surprise.
After two years of releases in the Futur[e]cho series, the series returns once again with its longest release yet. Getting somewhat away from the goal of the series, pairing lesser known artists with bigger names in the scene, last years release got away from that. This years release has a bunch of artists you’ve probably not heard of that need to be heard along with some bigger talent you’ve already heard of. This years release also instills more Ambient Techno than Dub Techno, but there is a good mix of both styles on the release. This year’s release features several of the artists that have appeared on both releases, returning artists from the very first release in the series along with new faces. The series strives to get people who might be interested in either Dub Techno or Ambient Techno into both. Enjoy the sonic soundscapes that encompass what is Futur[e]cho 2013.
