“this is chapter one of three of my definition of dubtechno.
this is less calm and relaxed but rather made for the dance floor. all tracks were created completely with my modular system and everything is recorded live and not re-edited. this is less about long fading echoes than more about loop-oriented dub sound.”
“After multiple projects and experiences in various groups of various genres, he launches alone in 2018 under his project OHTNA project which he decides to realize following his travels after a stop in a festival of electronic music, more specifically the Dub-techno and the Micro.”
“The 2020 installment of the long running Futur[e]cho series brings together talented new artists to the series along with many familiar artists. Lots of varied styles in the Techno and House genres showcase the vast talent on this year’s release. Quite a modern sound, yet a refined one.”
“Who is behind this curious musical project called SMOK? It is a question I made to myself a couple of years ago after listening to a collab between Andrés and Nicolás (a.k.a Slang). Time has passed and I have discovered that this curiousity comes from Andrés, who is music studious and part of the new generation of producers from Quinta Región. Brain Damage is the result of his curiosity. Accelerated beats, bass drums, violent boxes and acid basses; a sharp chaos which is tidied up within mysterious and obscure melodies. An album that brings me back to the 90’s and spotting strong influences of the electro, such as Underground Resistance, Drexciya, Aux88, or Radioactive Man, among others. Nineties reminiscence that mixes technological advance and that succeeds in locating us nowadays, thus giving life to an album which treasures the origins of the electro-techno, but at the same time adapts perfectly to the present.”
