CURLE 063 BY HIVER IS OUT NOW

Since making their debut on the imprint in 2013 with ‘Blue Aconite’, the Italian duo has since released two more EPs on Curle; ‘Same Mistake Twice’ in 2015 and ‘Soundescence’ last year. Since the release of the latter mentioned EP, Hiver have been busy behind the booth, performing in the UK, China, Germany, Holland and, of course, in Italy, where they still hold a residency at DUDE Club.

Kicking off the EP is ‘Elipse’, a stunning four-minute track that nods to avant-garde artists such as Wolfgang Voigt’s GAS alias or Brian Eno, as the pair gradually weaves several layers of shining, atmospheric tones before slowly fading into the background.
Title-named track ‘Air Castles’ follows, with the tight selection of drums combined with the ebb and flow of soaring synths creating a melodic style of techno that has become synonymous with their name.
Next is ‘Aleutine’, a song that similarly blends Hiver’s characteristically ethereal, hazy synths alongside more vibrant analogue bleeps to great effect. These delicate synths are later given the chance to gleam as the track comes to a close.
Closing this excellent four-track EP is deep-groover ‘Leisure’, seeing Hiver up the tempo through their clever use of percussive elements, sharp synths and headstrong drums.

CURLE 062 IS OUT NOW

Thomas Neyens first left his mark on the dance scene under his alias Kiani & His Legion, with two releases on Red D’s We Play House Recordings in 2013 and more recently on Something Happening Somewhere, quickly demonstrating his accomplished production flair. This led the Belgian establishing his own imprint, Tanzbar Records, where he dropped two EPs under his Far Out Radio Systems moniker – bringing a more ‘dancefloor focused’ sound. Now after a two year hiatus, Neyens returns to his Far Out Systems alias for this EP, his first offering for a label outside of Tanzbar Records. 
 
‘Spheres’ kicks off the release, with its soft bassline perfectly complimenting the hazy synths, syncopated drums and the mesmerising nuances from the hang drum that feature later in the track.
The slow burning style continues on ‘Jane Goodall’, with the track’s atmospheric textures gradually overpowered by a steady selection of drums, percussion and off-kilter effects. 
‘Vaquita’ sees Far Out Radio Systems up the tempo whilst still sonically retaining the melancholic, hypnotic sound of the EP, as the snare-led rhythm gradually gains in momentum over its seven minute duration.
Closing this excellent four track EP is ‘On A Quest’, a pulsating number that combines soaring, ethereal synths with a club ready groove that is perfect for the shadowy dancefloors the Belgian DJ/producer performs to.

CURLE 060 BY EDANTICONF IS OUT NOW

Edanticonf’s music feels perfectly crafted for the brooding atmospheric venues he so often performs in (always as a live artist too). Both the aforementioned adjectives can be attributed to his style of techno too, one that places the focus less on the technical side and more on the human one, aiming to reflect his emotions and state of being through the hazy soundscapes that draw influence from the natural scenery around him.
His concise back-catalogue features releases on revered labels such as M_REC LTD, Trolldans, Phorma and Silent Season – the imprint which released his debut LP, ‘Forest Echo’, in 2012. On each release, Edanticonf’s work sonically varies, from the more ambient compositions present on his ‘Planet’ EP for Silent Season to his dub-infused techno release on Italy’s M_REC LTD, but each offering never compromises on its quality, something which sits at the core of this project.

Kicking off the EP is the title-named track, ‘The Mind Power’, a hypnotic techno number that blends atmospheric textures and arpeggiated synth patterns with industrial-inducing pad tones, gradually introducing further elements throughout its eight minute duration.
‘Interlude’ follows, a song that much like the rest of the EP focuses its attention on the refined nuances of the analogue synthesiser, blending this with more delicate synth passages and other shadowy digital effects.
Closing this excellent three-track EP is ‘We Dance Together’, a dazzling, almost trance-like closer that fuses these soaring atmospheric elements and delicate synths with gritty, lo-fi drums to great effect.
