Release Date: 8.12.2023
Juliet Fox’s record label TREGAMBE presents a new release featuring exhilarating techno tracks by Clif Jack, Bjørnson, TØDV, Mark Wildman, Victoria.52 and Datcher.
Opening the release, Clif Jack is an Italian artist who has made waves in 2023 with releases on record labels ranging from Reinier Zonneveld’s Filth on Acid to Simina Grigoriu’s Kuukou Records, and he ends the year with his debut on TREGAMBE.
Other artists on the release such as Germany’s Bjørnson, Australia’s Mark Wildman and France’s Victoria.52 also boast releases on established labels ranging from KD RAW to Suara, while the other artists such as the UK’s Datcher are exciting talents who are still early in their music career.
TØDV is an Australian artist who is making his first ever official release with his pounding techno track on this release, and all of the artists are making their TREGAMBE debut with their contribution to this compilation.
Clif Jack is known for his thundering style of techno with beefy percussion and captivating synth lines, and his music has found home on sets of people like Adam Beyer. Clif Jack’s track “U Need U” has a tension-building opening that introduces the menacing bassline and pounding kick drum. It’s fast-paced hi-hats and bleeping synth tones lead to compelling vocals that become the track’s focal point. It’s an electro-tinged cut that has a timeless sound reminiscent of other artists such as Miss Kittin & The Hacker.
Bjørnson’s “Ultrasonic” has a hypnotic lead synth layered with raw percussion, and TØDV’s “Take Control” is a brutal acid track with rave influences. Mark Wildman’s “Cut The Bass” is rave-inspired track with a throbbing lead synth, and Victoria.52’s “Satck” is a peak time techno track with twisted euphoria.
Datcher’s “Rocked” closes the release with its filter swept synths and compelling vocals that will get the dance floor moving with the help of its hammering kick drum.
All six tracks on this compilation pack a heavyweight punch and it’s a great showcase of Juliet Fox’s record label TREGAMBE that features a selection of exciting artists that are destined for big things in 2024.
