Survey – Paperhands

In reverence to deep soundscapes executed with precision and sophistication, Translation Recordings proudly presents the ‘Chop Chop’ EP from Berlin-based duo, Survey. Kicking off with a slow-burning cut of brooding minimalism, ‘Acting Posh’ invokes an ominous atmosphere as an array of foreboding, machine-like sounds are stitched together with meticulous refinement

Dropframe – Maze (Ekko & Sidetrack Remix)

FREE DOWNLOAD: http://bit.ly/1GyBuYS

A brilliant gully new free download from Ekko & Sidetrack for Melbourne artist Dropframe. Ekko and Sidetrack are brothers, Jeff and Jono Hansen. Raised in Perth, Australia, learning instruments and listening to their parents varied music collection these two got into production around 2008. Armed with an old version of Ableton and no idea what the hell a VST was they cut their teeth on a pair of PC speakers and a laptop. Seven years and a new studio later this duo have found their sound – A mixture of dancefloor, liquid, future jazz and big bass.

Over the last few years they have released music on several small labels including Interphase recordings, Breach audio & Cue recordings but last year took a big step by featuring on the Viper Recordings Summer Slammers LP. As well as producing music they have supported some of the biggest names in drum and bass including Friction, Pendulum, Shockone, Matrix & Futurebound, Brookes Brothers and Netsky.

Simple Technique – Cold Steppin

Buy vinyl: http://bit.ly/1CWSVAl

After cementing his standing in the world of 170bpm beats and bass with a number of releases on a diverse range of imprints, including Metalheadz, Ram Records, Critical Music and others, Xtrah steps into 2015 with a brand new label of his own. The London based producer and DJ is proud to introduce Cyberfunk, and kicks things off with a four track EP.

Talented up-and-coming duo Simple Technique take the reins on ‘Cold Steppin’. Brooding and dark, the track shows a mature level of sound design from the newcomers discovered by Xtrah who will be part of the inception of Cyberfunk. Definitely a name to keep an eye on in future.
