“Monofónicos Netlabel presenta el debut de Monka con un espectacular lanzamiento de Techno futurista llamado First Version.
Daniel Muñoz es un artista de la ciudad que trae una propuesta con un Techno espacial y trepidante bajo un concepto particular, donde la música de melodías metafísicas como parte primordial de sonidos deconstruidos y adictivos nos hacen florecer multitud de sensaciones donde se explora una narrativa Techno de mucha ficción e hipnótica distorsión.
Monka con sus 4 tracks y 2 remixes en conjunto con Archaic Revival y Ricardo Carmona nos sumerge en un paisaje sonoro a través de patrones de sintetizadores de medio tiempo y armonías sombrías donde la exploración está siempre latente.
Síguele la pista a la música de Monka, calidad garantizada.”
“Introducing the Low Frequency Humanoid (LFH), a new side project from Ben Evans aka The Droid. This debut 4 track EP presents a juxtaposition towards his usual electro style as The Droid. Showcasing a more groovy house/techno flavour of music.”
“Andersworld, the Broque debut of Marie Wilhelmine Anders, is already an extremely multi-faceted work of art, which combines club music, storytelling and a curious approach to classical and electronic instruments in a virtuoso way, resulting in an album that always rests harmoniously in itself. As if the influences and facets weren’t diverse enough, the follow-up Andersworld Remix album takes that to the next level: across eleven remixes, eight artists stemming from a close yet extended circle of friends sharpen the electronic and club-oriented dimension of Maries songs. The first half dozen of tunes emphasise the straight bassdrum, leading to such fantastic dark dub techno dramas such as the dark yet euphoric Max Cavalerra remix of ‘Escape At Bedtime’. In a similar direction heads Tis alias Synthese, who reworks both ‘High (The Wind)’ and ‘Playing Instruments’ into fairly elegiac tunes driven by dubby grooves. Marie’s voice and piano dabs enliven Rene Wright’s remix in between techno and house, while US-based Jonathan Santarelli and Stefan Kranz transform ‘Summer Sun’ respectively ‘Keepsake Mill’ into dreamy yet deep trance epics. Finally, Mar io, Max Cavalerra, Rikaar and the wonderful Morgen Wurde get more experimental and created floating ambient tunes, where in particular the latter turns Marie’s voice with the help of time stretching and much love for the detail into a beguiling ambient drama for eternity. To describe our new release as a mere remix collection would be pure understatement: held together by Marie’s outstanding source material and Thomas Lutz‘ cover art, Andersworld Remixes represents a collective piece of art, which further deepens as well as broadens Maries original invention that is the Andersworld.”
“Aussie expat and Platform 22 head honcho Xono comes to CV for the first time for this next edition of CVU. His track Lateral is a slamming, vaguely haunting and groovy number, backed up by our own ADMINISTRATOR who has extracted the drums from the original mix and pushed them over the edge.
CVU004 is here and ready to ignite your ears, downloadable for free exclusively via SoundCloud.”

“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.”
