Back to the vinyl rules, Spectral Rebel is proud to present its collaboration with the Dutch duo Abstract Division, featuring two originals and two remixes by Mike Storm and Re:Axis.
The good architecture of “Convergent” opens the EP with a slow but strong climax; hypnotic rhythms and ambient sounds create an elegant atmosphere, surrounded by a resonant voice.
“Divergent” shows a deeper concept of techno: the emotional melody keeps the track into a new landscape, merging with a heavy basslines.
Mike Storm is a familiar name to the label. His remix reshapes the original track “Convergent” and takes us into an interstellar trip through the cosmos. The atmosphere is intense.
Re:Axis version of “Divergent” is a high-energy piece and it’s definitely the powerful techno punch of this EP. Classic drum sounds combine with vibrating kicks and some loopy cuts.
SPR007 is an ecstasy for ears and a proper bang for dancefloors.

Spectral Rebel 006: B R 1 0 0 2 – Sinister Assault EP
Spectral Rebel welcomes to B R 1 0 0 2 for the sixth release, the two young producers who, beyond a gentle visage, hide an extreme techno side. The title, “Sinister Assault”, is the proof of that!
“Mr & Miss Esin” is not a love affair, as the title could suggest, but it’s a rhythmic and growing intensity piece with some acidic repetitive patterns. The distortions are the icing on the cake.
“1100010001″ can be defined as the manifesto of the raw-est sounds. The metallic vocal opens to a powerful track, with no place for sentimentalism.
The echo of the industrial noise is remarkable also in “Rechted”, the third track of this EP, and it’s an intense recall to the acid grooves too.
The breaking point of “Sinister Assault” is “Sferiche Opzioni”. It’s the perfect trip for the mind, leaving the imagination in idyllic soundscapes.
A musthave for your library.

Spectral Rebel 003: Miriam Macri – Manifesto Blanco EP
Miriam Macri – Manifesto Blanco (Original)
Miriam Macri – Manifesto Blanco (Hertz Collision remix)
Miriam Macri – Essenza (Original)
Miriam Macri – Essenza (Future 16 remix)
Spectral Rebel hits again, finally with the 3rd release signed by Miriam Macrì one of the main italian female promises in the techno scene thanks to her brilliant career that ranges from the rawest techno to the deepest and introspective experiments.
Manifesto Blanco wants to disconnect from the main influences and trends, wanting to represent the possibility to connect different representations of the essence of each of us, placing on the table a value that makes the work an unique piece of complete freedom of expression, without being tied “directly” to each other.
The first track, homonymous of the release, is an introspective dubbing deep trip going through an intimate soft and pure mood, wrapping the listener in an hypnotic sensuality. The remix of the florentine duo, “Hertz Collision”, is a distorted vision of the original, a complex crescendo resembling an unpredictability sea in full, becoming aggressive even before you can realize it, catapulting suddenly everything in a dangerous temper.
The other Miriam’s original “Essenza” recovers the sneaky mood of the first one. Here the groove is more wired, embroidered in a murky pad that transmits a sort of warm narrow state of mind meanwhile a series of acid spin stabs are about to announce something that is going to happen and while it seems everything is going to fall, the true “essence” of freedom comes out with an emotional calm explosion. As also the other remix, the Future 16 one to “Essenza” shows completely another dimension, here of the acid use, of course the most aggressive. This tune is violent, is raw, is uncaring of everything and everyone, raw and rough maybe the “rebel” piece of the release.
After the great debut of some month ago, Spectral Rebel is ready to return with another massive release, this time signed by a further coming up artist in the techno scene: Manuel Di Martino. Known for his leaning for an old school rugged way of interpret productions and sets, Manuel shows us his acidest side in a one-sided 12″ vinyl, accompanied by the new young revelation of our times, the composer, arranger and pianist Raffaele Attanasio, making this second release, an absolute masterpiece.
“Raw Intentions” isn’t only the release title, but the perfect concise description of the entire incision. The original one starts with a simply running nocturnal rhythm hard and chary at the same time but, after a while, give off, almost as a surprise, its real soul, an incessant flooding river of acid stabs, angry bites which rain in a fluctuating progress inducing any individual on the dance floor to deal with an huge sharp wall of sound waves.
Raffaele Attanasio put his sign on with an unique and nonpareil version, combining both his distinctive mark of piano artist and his “raw” soul represented by his alias X501. Almost heard several times in his live sets, this work is recognizable for the mathematically combination of overdrived harsh kicks crossed by acid stabs, all broked suddenly by a melodically solo piano touch which puts you in a short deep dream.
Finally “V3″ closes the EP as a digital bonus original track that confirms the acid taste of the release with an hammering pulsing drum kit worthy of the oldest techno tunes.
The first Spectral Rebel Release is signed by Logotech, a Neapolitan talented dj/producer almost became established from many years in the Techno scene for his ability to create unions between the old school soul side of the genre and an ever-renewed way to conceive each production.
A-side opens the release with “To Sma Angribere” a powerful track marked by aggressives and firmed kicks like pistons at full capacity, surrounded by acid scribbles in the deepest space, trait of the fittest Logotech. Mattias Fridell signs the A side with his precious remix, a track which gives rise to a simple but psicolabile groove that makes you fall into a trance, escorted by an infinite droned trail scanned by snatchy tolls like ancient gongs. The back side is dedicated to “Sub Lunar Phase II”, an ancestral and quasi-sacred plot of acid stabs and trippy pads, almost an ode which consacrate the long journey that is going to take Spectral Rebel’s concept. Takatsugu Wada remix of B side places the track under other spothlights rivisiting it with a shiny and accelerate mood.
Let’s proceed with the 98th episode driven by the duo TWRT2!! TWR72 is an Amsterdam based techno duo sharing the same predilection of music since their early teens. Now, almost two decades later, they still share this bond and are seen as the most thriving duo in the scene. TWR72 pioneers their own forward- thinking approach towards electronic music: a fusing and pulsing rhythm with a cutting drive, binding it with a strong signature groove. In 2010 they celebrated their first successes with refreshing productions with which they have set a standard for many following young producers. With an even more progressed sound, they signed at Turbo Recordings and released several leading techno EP’s. Moreover, TWR72 released ‘Endless’; a locked groove masterpiece consisting of 72 loops. The cherry on the cake was their collaboration with LA’s most wanted producer, Truncate. Their journey continued with the genesis of their own imprint Float Records in 2014. With this label they explore the combination of perfection and simplicity shown by both young, talented producers as well as renowned artists. In 2015 they released several EP’s on Planet Rhythm which were charted and played by the biggest artists out there. 2016 starts out well with their debut in techno’s most praised club, Berghain. Furthermore they have a new EP coming up on Float Records and several remixes for big artists are on the way. Tracky, stripped-back and tough as hell, TWR72, delivers an ultra-lean cut of prime techno.

Labeled by many as a sovereign tastemaker within the international electronic music community, Amsterdam-based DJ/producer and FORMAT-founder Juan Sanchez continues to consistently and relentlessly push techno boundaries. His trademarked stripped-down sound, which is as sophisticated as it is potent, has made him a respected name in his league and a preferred pick for numerous promoters across the globe. As a DJ, he has graced peak time slots at clubs and festivals around the world. In 2014, Juan got invited to play at the Dutch edition of one of the world’s most famous techno shindigs, Time Warp, which was followed by another prestigious gig at Berlin’s Berghain in 2015. However, Juan’s skills stretch further than just the decks: his studio output has appeared on a wealth of labels such as Drumcode, Stockholm LTD and Wolfskuil amongst many others. Aside from DJ’ing and studio duty, Juan also operates his own record label FORMAT, which serves as an outlet for potent and mature underground techno. With a seventh release by Juan himself appearing soon on the label, FORMAT cuts have been garnering support from Adam Beyer, Laurent Garnier, Rødhåd, Len Faki and DVS1 amongst many others.

Marcel Heese for the 95th, enjoy it!! Marcel Heese’s take on Techno is a blend of relentlessness and sublety, using sound design and precise aesthetics, he walks that leftfield path that opens techno out beyond its confines. Part of the Tresor.Berlin resident team since 2008, Marcel is a DJ who disregards expectations for floorfillers. This stems from an independent minded view on DJing that saw him through a time when hard, ambitious Techno was in the state of an outlaw. During the Minimal-legacy of the early 2000s he began buying records, inspired by a Tresor DJ-set from Surgeon. Bit by bit he collected his heroes’ records, drawing from them to his own emerging yet diverse aesthetic sensibility. Labels and artists such as Underground Resistance, Downwards, early Warp Records, Basic Channel, Plastikman, Sähkö, Planetary Assault Systems, proto-Techno á la Throbbing Gristle & Nitzer Ebb, Whitehouse and Italo-Disco filled his record shelf. He frequented Tresor, seeing it as a place to observe what techno could do. He was appointed to the resident team after a gig at “new faces”. Marcel subsequently began hosting “new faces” himself while cultivating his DJing approach in one of Germany’s best booths. Focusing on sublety and depth, he developed a style that could meander seamlessly through styles, affording him the ability to play every time of the night and keep up even with the most selectors on the planet. His pursuits in the scene have moved further with the beginning of his label Finitude Music in 2014. Thus far the young imprint has released four records; two of Marcels mutual project with Berlin DJ and producer P.E.A.R.L. called PMH, and two in collaboration with German mastermind Alexander Kowalski aka d_func.. Remixes so far have been contributed by none others than Sleeparchive, Regis and Lewis Fautzi.

Today we have with us Mr. Gareth Wild from London!! Label owner of ‘EarToGround’ Gareth’s story begins in 1992 during the early years of Jungle. By 94 he had developed a very strong addiction to vinyl and London’s underground rave culture. As the years progressed his musical tastes developed to the genre known as Techno. Along the way he has gained over 15 years of underground musical diversity. He strives for an over all, forward thinking sound for ‘EarToGround’ aiming to do things differently and come up with something new with each release. In 2011 he brought Lucy’s Stroboscopic Artifacts to the UK for the first time with two packed out parties at Corsica Studios. This relationship developed further with Oblivious Artifacts designing the artwork for the first series of four releases on EarToGround Records.
In 2013 he finally managed to bring Jonas Kopp to UK shores as well as a first London debut appearance from Pole Group’s Reeko.
Quickly becoming a highly respected Dj and producer, you will never hear the same set twice from Gareth. You will regularly find him behind the decks alongside label compadres Chris Stanford and Dax J.
This week the new episode from Kessell!! Enjoy it!! Kessell is the alter ego of Valentín Corujo, half of the Exium duo, this is his solo project where he explores the most liquid of his sonic palette. His music has naturally evolved from a hard and minimalist sound to their current style mixing dub, detroit techno, electro, minimal or techno, which has lead to the creation of his label Granulart Recordings, physical/digital label focused on the deepest side of techno with dub influences, classic Detroit sound and 90´s techno, designed both to release his own stuff as well as music from artists that fit the philosophy of the label. A label where precision and musicality occur hand in hand with the intention of creating timeless pieces, outside the passage of time, sounds you can enjoy as a delicatessen over the years.
