New label Teng just released their debut EP of deep techno

from the press release:

London based imprint Teng launch this July with the fantastic ‘AKRASounds Vol.1’ by Nick Woolfson aka AKRA including a remix from Neville Watson.

Nick Woolfson, as one half of Mock & Toof has built a reputation for producing quality underground deep house and nu-­‐disco, releasing with the likes of Mule Musiq, DFA and Tiny Sticks / M&T, as well as remixing reputable artists such as Scissor Sisters, Groove Armada, Zero 7, Hot Chip and Ladyhawke. Now Woolfson moves into techno territory with this new side project as AKRA.

Opening track ‘Black Sands’ utilizes skippy, broken percussion and a subtle bass line that warbles softly in the background yet adds a substantial amount of low-­‐end depth. The melodic aesthetics take on Detroit influences with cavernous reverbs on moody pads and an eight note hooky stab sequence. Sporadic claps creep in to further fuel the drum shuffle adding a trippy edge.

British Techno artist Neville Watson steps in to rework B-­‐Side, ‘Dust To Dirt’, employing his intensive analogue workout to the composition. From the off the drums scream power with punchy kicks, crispy claps and rolling hats leading the way, while a flourishing delayed synth adds a further sense of excitement as the track builds. Watson manages to completely transform the feel of the original yet maintains enough of the original vibe to make it instantly recognisable as a remix. As with all his works there is an underlying sense of wisdom and experience attached that add another number to his consistently outstanding melancholic productions.

‘Dust To Dirt’ closes the release, a pulsating techno track driven by resonant base notes and a fluttering synth. A simple sturdy drum pattern eases things along while the melodic elements carry its weight. AKRA builds on the progressive hook with modulation and filter rises to create an ever-­‐evolving movement throughout.

AKRA delivers music with style and inspiring expression, AKRASounds Vol.1 is sure to grab some attention amongst lovers of deep ethereal techno.

Here are straeming preview clips of "Black Sands" and the "Dust to Dust" remix:

Free downloads from Pollinate Records

Pollinate Records sent us some fresh goodies and there were a couple of the tracks that we loved and had to share. The first is a really great tune for the summer, a vocal tune that blurs the lines between house and UK garage.

The other track has a midtempo / moombahton vibe and is based around some samples from the Game Of Thrones television show.

Murlo worked on both of these tracks, so be sure to show him some love at the following links, we've also got some linkage for Pollinate Records as well. Pollinate has a new compilation coming out in the fall so stay tuned.
