Various - Dark Planet

Monday, 22nd November 2021

Avoidant Records return with a fresh rogue squadron assembled for another massive compilation as 16 Electro warriors take on the Dark Planet.

Afters last years huge Defend Your Planet VA, Avoidant immediately set about recruiting another incredible group of artists that represent the labels output. Once more, an exciting blend of established, classic and up and comping producers, all taking inspiration from the collective sound of Detroit & European influenced Electro, come together to make their sound heard via Dark Planet.

The breaks influenced Wish Youd Leave from Three Faces Of Eve opens with a dark and ominous vibe before the legendary DJ Godfather drops a stripped, funk laced bomb on Its Only Detroit. The UKs Steve Allman takes things Next Level with some straight up twisted and aggressive beats as Dutch wizard Versalife leans on more sci-fi elements with his Shift Levels. Having already appeared on a previous label VA, another Dutch connection in the form of Helsmoortel delivers some heavy rocking old skool vibes as a more emotive approach is taken by Flug on Just You. Assembler Code steps up for Avoidant once more with some hyper production skills on the mutant bass styled Architects. Detroits own Blaktony means business with the direct and funktional Produkt before The Exaltics bring things down with the deep and sweeping One Direct Line. The enigmatic VRIL sets up the back end of the compilation nicely with his signature sound soaking up snappy percussive beats. Huge bass waves direct from The Lord Of the Isles on Approach & Identify glide across dubbed out percussion and effective melodies. PARANDs Archangel is a dark and gnarly bass driven affair while Australias own 88756 makes your Fine Dining Experience a rather forbidding one. Glasgow based duo, Co-Accused make a welcome debut on Avoidant with the spatial and techno edged Abduction. Another Glasgow based artist, the mysterious Monk returns with the delicately crafted Simulation Theory; a pulsating and ethereal journey before the UKs Darkmode closes out the compilation with an ode to early UK sounds on Dr Bloodmoney.

Non Reversible - Mental Absorbing EP

Friday, 22nd October 2021

Berlin's own Non Reversible makes a welcome return to Soma with his latest release, the Mental Absorbing EP. Non Reversible's commitment to the harder and darker sides of techno once again shine through on this uncompromising 4 track EP.

Fearless Approach is a perfect of example of Non Reversible's relentless sound design as thumping kicks drive across a backbone of distortion and propulsive percussion before breaking into buzzing synths and screeching pads. Mental Absorbing keeps up the momentum as the Berlin based produced once again challenges you to stay strong against his dynamic and resolute techno; with wild and twisted acid basslines warping against siren like synths. Deviance leans on a more industrial tip with much more prominent distortion in the sound design but doesn't lack in direct and solid flow as this is definitely a heads down, dance floor based weapon. Biological Efficiency closes out the EP with much of the same ferocity found throughout the rest of the release. A seriously dark and dirty affair, this is certainly no ordinary closing track as aggression levels are dialled up to 11.

Carbon Black opens uncompromisingly with thunderous drums, perfectly tuned to give that heavy stomping effect, continuously increasing in intensity before relenting momentarily to a subdued pad before rocketing back in, all guns blazing. Schism goes on a more industrial tip with it's more mechanised feel and crashing percussion building slowly and with purpose. Short, abrupt stabs give rise to tension that it quickly cleaved by clinical, razor sharp percussion.

Slam - Louder Than Chaos Vol. 1

Friday, 24th September 2021

On March 2020 the world was abruptly thrown into collective disarray. The pandemic stopped almost everything dead in its tracks. No social gatherings, self-isolation, a sense of panic and bewilderment prevailed. An industry that had become so dependent on human connection and unity, was suddenly switched off and put on pause for an unforeseeable future.It was in this climate that The Louder Than Chaos project was born, facilitated by Soma Records head honchos and Techno protagonists Slam. A collaborative project with friends, colleagues and contemporaries normally only seen at airports, or events, now brought together under a completely different set of circumstances, allowing for a purposeful connection in a time of disconnect. The focus of the project is built on a powerful mutual participation, remotely constructed over time and fully intended for holding court on peak time dance floors when they inevitably return. That time has now finally come.The Louder Than Chaos project is a series of 5 releases, on 12 vinyl & Digital, to be released monthly via Soma Records. Featuring collaborations between Slam & Hector Oaks, Slam & 999999999, Slam & Keith Tucker (AKA Optic Nerve), Slam & Amelie Lens, Slam & Rebekah, Slam & AnD and finally Slam & Perc. Each EP features specially commissioned artwork from German based artist PPP Panic, which consolidates into one constructive piece over the 5 releases.Opening Volume 1, Slam pair with Italian rave starters 999999999 for Conveyor. Arguably one of the hardest tracks in the project, both artists combine to unleash a furious and twisted acid techno stomper. Madrid born, vinyl enthusiast Hector Oaks is next up, joining Slam on a proper, attitude filled techno excursion with Pathfinder; its heady melodic elements mask a driving and potent track. Detroit originator Optic Nerve helps Slam to close out the EP with the Motor City electronics of Machine Conflict. Early Slam influence mixes perfectly with the Detroit natives unique electro sound.

Rebekah - The Bitter Boys

Friday, 6th November 2020

Rebekah returns to Soma this October with four relentless techno cuts on 'The Bitter Boys Club EP'.
Following the recent 'Ghost Stories' EP on her own Elements label, the Birmingham born, Berlin-based artist brings yet another bout of the uncompromising and brutal techno she is renowned for to Slam’s lauded imprint.

Kicking things into gear is the titular ‘The Bitter Boys Club’, with staccato claps and wriggling synths whirling around the ‘twisted’ vocal sample, forming a tense and hypnotic cut. Biting, high-attack kick drums play off rhythmic scraping FX in ‘Lock n’ Load (One for the Road)’, creating a searing and continually evolving track hellbent on sonic annihilation.

‘Necromancer’ conjures images of the track title as ghostly, spectral textures carry the track alongside its razor-sharp percussion. Rounding off the release, ‘Confession Tape’, treads an eerie, unnerving path with pitch-shifting choral tones skillfully intertwining with an intricate but hefty bedrock of drums and low end.

‘The Bitter Boys Club EP’ sees Rebekah developing her sound, further distilling the techno templates of Birmingham and Berlin into something distinctly her own.

Rebekah ‘The Bitter Boys Club EP’ lands on Soma with a Beatport and Soma Shop exclusive on 26th October 2020, and worldwide on 6th November.

Glass Chinn keeps the intensity flowing with galloping percussion that leads directly into a dark, driving and industrial-esq affair. Maiden Voyage works in more hypnotic elements whilst still retaining Jerm’s concussive and direct sound. The jacking and funked up vibes of Booze Cruise can be found as a Bandcamp exclusive.

Both have been a part of the Glasgow scene for some time with Quail running the Animal Farm event series & label for 15 years and AISHA one of the city’s brightest talents in recent years with several solo releases under her belt already. With a shared passion for the harder, faster edges of Techno, this debut collaborative EP from the pair fully explores the realms of intense, dance floor Techno.

‘Warschauer’ opens the EP as one of the more melodic tracks on the release, it’s direct hook immediately grabbing you. ‘Twenty Rapid’ takes the pace up a notch as an intimidating rave based hook rhythmically punishes against fast paced percussion. Things go down a darker route as “Priority One’ leans on more EBM roots with sinister, foreboding elements making up the backbone of the track. Title track ‘The Fall’ closes out the release with yet more intense percussion workouts driving a pulsing, droning synth line.

Slam - Archive Edits LP

Wednesday, 1st January 2020

Slam rework Nitzer Ebb, Silent Breed, DK8, Terrence Fixmer and more for the final instalment of their Archive Edit series.

Soma label heads Slam curate a specially designed package of tracks to finalise their Archive Edit project that sees them delve deep into Techno’s past to bring some of the genre’s best tracks into the modern age. 

The Archive Edit project started as a way for Slam to showcase and share the many different edits that had made their way into their DJ sets over the last few years. The pairing of Stuart McMillan & Orde Meikle have both raided their extensive collections, picking out tracks that have defined countless sets over their career. Tracks from luminaries such as Nitzer Ebb, Thomas P Heckmann (as Silent Breed), Damon Wild & Terence Fixmer have been re-edited alongside some of Slam’s own unreleased material, showcasing the duo’s current sound; one that naturally evolves and matures, and demonstrates why the duo have been at the forefront of the global scene since its inception.

“We resurrect nine cuts from our archive collective collections for your listening and spinning pleasure. Some are original material, some are live re-edits, some are well-known, others are not! They all have one thing in common, they all attempt to unashamedly destroy dancefloors, and thus featured heavily, (usually toward the end of our DJ sets) in the last year or so. Now we share them with you!"

Slam open the album with an absolute monster track in the form of their rework of the legendary Nitzer Ebb’s ‘Join In The Chant’. The anthemic EBM/post-punk infused original is given a thrashing overhaul from the duo marking one of the standout tracks of this collection.  A special live rework of fan favourite ‘Scorpion’ drops before the previously unreleased ‘Memoriam’ delivers on a more emotive tip. Firing back into the edits is Thomas P Heckmann’s seminal ‘Sync In’ (under his Silent Breed moniker) which is a fast-paced, Neo-Trance affair. Slam then drop the manic ‘1001’ which takes the BPM stratospheric. DK8’s 'Murder Was The Bass' is up next and given a 2019 update as the duo's edit snatches up all the most perfect elements of the track. This leads nicely into a rework of French EBM legend Terence Fixmer’s ‘Body Pressure’ - driving through with its twisted beats and vocals. Another special live edit of the first Archive Edit release, Damon Wild’s Rotary makes an appearance as the album closes out with the rave infected rework of the Hertz’s classic ‘Recreate’.

Title track The Way Back reminisces to Birmingham-era UK Techno with it’s thundering rhythms and twisted synth hook. Tales Of The Future takes things on a more futuristic tip as spacial polyrhythms build the structure of this very functional track.

Several years have passed since his last release and in that time, the experienced Clementi has reminded and toughened his sound. This latest EP takes him in a new musical direction yet remnants of his past still influence these new tracks.

Opening track, Sustainable Planets is an epic opener to say the least. Charging rhythms set the tone before a vast, orchestral string section opens up giving a very melancholic, dystopian feel to the track. Cesar’s Assassin takes things up a notch as fast paced, 4x4 drums lead the way while an ever evolving, punishing lead sears through the base of the track. Title track Dicodon closes out the EP with a more trippy vibe but no less hard hitting than previous. Yet more sturdy percussive elements are at play, creating a dynamic and ferocious rhythm track.

Bluebells is yet another dance floor rocking track that hits the ground running right from the start. Razor sharp polyrhythmic structures keep the track interesting while intense percussive workouts provide the power. Title track Fortnight delves deeper whilst still remaining true to Sam’s direct and tough sound; don’t let this deeper side fool you, all the hallmarks of a proper banger remain intact! Chaos closes out things with a more groove laden and emotive tone as shuffling percussive elements funk things up before subtle synths work their way in giving the track a more melodic feel than the previous. Digital Bonus, Necessary Evil, is a straight up, no nonsense dance floor workout.
