House, Techno | Fairchild’s “Titan” EP Most On Point Akrade Release This Year Thus Far

Posted by on March 5, 2017

Fairchild burst onto the scene two years ago with his hit single “I Just Want You” that almost broke the million play mark on Soundcloud. Having been producing for quite a while now FairChild gives us a two track EP with songs “Titan” and “Remnant.” The eerie house beats are the perfect combination of dark and progressive grooves that make for stellar club tracks. It’s tough to find artists that truly put their emotions into the music and with these two releases FairChild did just that.

Music can elicit all kinds of emotions. In Fairchild’s case, icy soundscapes bristling with trance synths and house rhythms evoke feelings of both unease and euphoria often within the same space. It’s this sort of cinematic unpredictability that defines the classically trained anonymous producer who’s bringing a film score sensibility to the dance floor. Releasing two new tracks for Arkade Records, “Titan” & “Remnants” and both in the seven-minute range, he sets a journey in motion propelled by sonic futurism and timeless musical architecture. A man of few words and a distant obscured binary image, he’s just started the Progressions Mix series on Soundcloud & recently released the Evergreen EP via NuIdeals. Listeners can take a step deeper into his world with “Titan” & “Remnants” now.

Listening back to Seigyn previous releases “Let Go Feat. Grabbitz (Seigyn Remix)” seems very him, his sound typically showcases elements of techno or very full, in your face-type sounds – however you may describe them, Seigyn is carving out his own niche that can be appreciated. Take a listen above.

The Kisser, a France native just dropped what is being called “The future of disco” on Arkade. The track entitled ”Risqué” is nothing less than an absolute dance floor filler. The track consists of classic disco elements combined with modern production techniques that is a fresh edge to the genre. The horns have a robust and dominate sound over a percussion pattern that glides smoothly throughout the track, with clean production and hints of filtering; this track was built for the club. Released on February 25th he already has the support of dance music legends Kaskade and many more.

Techno | Point Blank Shares About History Of Techno Music

Posted by on November 17, 2016

Techno fans have a special treat today. The electronic music school has released a video discussing not only the history of techno music, but also production tips discussing, in detail, elements of education for the Ableton user. James Wiltshire, who has been featured talking about historical and production points with Point Blank before, uses his charming UK voice and impressive intellect to deliver a balance of history and knowledge.

Dope facts you probably didn’t know if you got into dance music this decade: Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson began to create what is now known as early Detroit Techno. Early tech-heads were influenced by the book Third Wave – I won’t give away any more interesting facts – but the video is worth the watch.

AGLORY is world-renowned for their dark beats and unique brand. They’ve worked with the similarly blackened imprint Kannibalen Records before, but now the French duo have partnered with them on a solo EP. MORT is the project, packed with four singles that echo underground sounds that techno enthusiasts love to boast about. Only, AGLORY puts their own spin on everything they do, which is what sets this EP apart from a lot of the comparable records coming out. Each track is its own journey, taking the listener on a dreary ride through industrial basslines and savage soundscapes. If you’re a fan of techno, things don’t get much better than this EP. AGLORY and Kannibalen make the perfect match on this project, and we hope to see them together again soon.

South Africa meets France with “Ocelot” from Kannibalen Records. The creative minds behind the single are HAEZER and AGLORY, both of whom are pillars in the techno community. Their single “Ocelot” shares each act’s love for dark, ominous records. Here they go in with an industrial-influenced single that focuses on simplicity. They focus on the essentials, and don’t try to do too much and the result is spectacular. Not only do we get their cool original, but Zeksullz was enlisted for a remix. With his take, Zeksullz turns things up with a jungle terror remix that flips “Ocelot” on its head. Both singles are incredible, despite their differing styles. Don’t sleep on either of them.

Justin Caruso’s new remix of “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” will take you on a trip down memory lane. This remix is a fresh take on a classic song that will have you in love with the song all over again. The song is evidently unique through it’s use of the vocoder which hasn’t been used successfully since Daft Punk’s last album. Give it a listen and if you like what you hear be sure to check out his other stuff.
