Factory 93 presents new mini-compilation series ‘MODULE 1’
A new mini-compilation series, “MODULE 1,” from the budding Factory 93 Records label, with scorching techno tracks by Mha Iri, Subject 32, Loco & Jam, Drakk, and Frame.
Factory 93 is proud to present its first various artist’s compilation, ‘MODULE 1.’ The release spans a wide range of techno sounds and includes some incredibly skilled artists from around the world.
Mha Iri and Subject32, both from Scotland and Australia, make a powerful opening for the release. “Solace,” their tumultuous cooperation, immediately picks up the pace. Punishing warehouse-ready drums and undulating bass give way to an ominous breakdown of pads and spoken vocals before slamming back to 11 with wide, aggressive basses and spacious, gnarled textures.
The Northern Irish combo Loco & Jam, who have been making waves in the European dance scene for years, are up next. Venturing into slightly deeper territory, “Let’s Get Back” makes use of percussive synths and a rapidly sequenced bassline to create a reliable groover that will keep the energy flowing when you need it.
“Todestanz,” a track by San Jose-based producer Drakk, is featured on the EP’s second half. The track’s components coalesce under layers of saturation, giving the bombastic percussion and chainsaw-like synth sections a particularly fiery character.
On the track, Drakk says:
‘Todestanz’ bridges the gap between the more underground and the mainstream techno. I feel privileged and happy to have this tune featured on a label like Factory 93. I hope it inspires others!
On “1076030,” the latest effort from Texas natives Decoder and Declan James, Frame, pushes distortion to new extremes. As a result, a persistent and aggressive combination of looping components emerges, demonstrating exactly how dirty techno can become. It’s a brutal song that never lets up and takes the compilation to an authoritative end.
‘1076030’ is a piece of throbbing 909 techno inspired by the sounds of the 2000s. “Cutting yet rough around the edges, with enough grime to punish the most wicked of dancefloors, we feel this track would fit perfectly in the sets of legends from Alan Oldham to Joey Beltram.
‘MODULE 1‘ is a fantastic beginning for the brand-new series, and Factory 93 will be putting together these collections on a regular basis, so keep a look out as more pieces start to come together.
Through Factory 93 Records, the compilation “MODULE 1” is accessible across all platforms.
