We announce with great enthusiasm the fourth number of the labelRelativity EP. A 3 track EP that includes the remix of a great DJ/Producer as Kyle Geiger. He certainly is no stranger to the international techno arena, with releases on heavy hitter labels such as Drumcode, Soma, Perc Trax, and Droid. Originally inspired by the harder, percussive stylings the techno sound featured on seminal labels from the late 90’s, Kyle has witnessed the evolution of the genre as it morphed into a more accessible, groove based sound. Still loving the energy and power of the more straight forward side of techno while embracing the genre’s changes, Kyle has refined his productions and DJ sets into what very well may be a new breed of soundscapes that pushes things forward for the next generation of techno to come.

With the first track Relativity we are immediately swallowed up by the past, in fact Kernel Key gives us this amazing track characterized by an impressive groove, a well-defined bassline and superlatives sequencers with rhythm modulations. A primordial memory of the 90’s Detroit Techno style.

A big applause to Kyle Geiger, who with his touch of experience and professionalism, shows off in 6:10 minutes his great skills as a producer giving rise to an extraordinary remix. Walking through the notes of the original track, Relativity Remix turns into a blend of rich percussive vitality with a resounding punch and an amazing arrangement which makes it a real orgasmic track.

At the end of this EP we foundE=mc2, a track that with its tribal rhythm and dark synths harmonies, creates the feeling of high hypnotism that transports us into an environment full of energy and techno vibration.

An EP that fully embraces the design of the label of letting revive memories of the new and old school techno.
