Our 2017 installment of our long running Dub, Deep and Ambient Techno series showcases a lot of new artists to the series, some returning favorites and a very modern sound. Showcasing the ever changing sound of Dub Techno, this one is sure to delight.
Genre: Dub Techno
ex-Origin produces a sound one can call Dub Techno. It leans heavily on the Techno side of the sound while still being atmospheric. His first release on the label is a 3 track Ep that showcases a talent that can only get better from here on out. A fine addition to the label, and one to not be missed.
HiKE returns with a fantastic Deep Techno Ep on the label. Shades of Dub Techno throughout the release,focused more on the atmospheres in the Techno realm than anything else. Smooth atmospheres highlight this release. Another fantastic HiKE release and an artist we’re proud to release.
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.
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.
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.
By way of introduction, Portland, OR, producer Sage Taylor offers bp4, a floating dub techno track to demonstrate the new alias… Or, that’s how it began, anyway. A few months, several emails and many remixes later, an album is born. Calling on multiple sources of talent spread across the far flung corners of the world, Sage has gathered an impressive list of remixers, including: Mandrasigma, Rabbit Rabbit, Zander One, Katsura, Substak, Fingers in the Noise, Zwei Kreise, Desove, Warmth, Coppice Halifax and The Downgrade Complex… And as a bonus, at the end, are two alternate mixes by aspect. himself. It’s an album for rainy days and headphones… One to get lost in.
Our 58th release in the series comes from The Downgrade Complex who started off our 2014 edition of Futur[e]cho. He brings a wall of noise filled melodies and thumping kicks to the album before giving way to several remixers who give their own takes on several of his tracks.
Our first single from Beneath The World is upon us. Featuring Chill ambient style music with laid back basslines and jungle/dnb drum loops underneath making this a unique IDM and Chillout release. The 2 tracks feature swirling synths, rhodes, pads and more to wind down the day.
The 2014 edition of Futur[e]cho has arrived. 12 artists, 12 unique snapshots of today’s Dubby and Ambient Techno scene. Kicking off the Compilation this year with his signature wall-of-noise take on the genre is The Downgrade Complex, one of this year’s new faces alongside Heisa, Oliver Dombi, SkiFi and Liquid Level. The journey is punctuated by a handful of seasoned F[e] veterans, and it all comes together to bring you one blissed-out deep journey. While this year’s compilation doesn’t have the length of 2013’s offering, it packs an equally great punch, and now is available for you to listen to.
