We get just a little excited when we see a new release from The Junkies record label Local Music Group. Why is that? Well take a listen to the back catalogue that is full of straight up BOMBS and you will understand.
The latest release on the label is the second instalment of the Strange Neighbours compilation series. We supported many of the tracks from Volume 1 of the series which was released last July and so we knew what to expect from Volume 2. To say it has delivered would be an understatement. Its a compilation full of forward thinking techno that packs a serious punch. The tracks all have a serious groove to them whilst retaining that flowing energy that seems to be present across the majority of the releases on the label.
Whilst all tracks stand up we really felt this little gem from Spanish producer Fer BR stood out. We have been very impressed with Fer BR. After following his releases throughout the year we could hear his sound developing and then his E.P release on our favourite Frenchman Ron Costa‘s Potobolo Records in October really stepped things up a gear. This track for Local titled “Welcome To Rawland” follows on from his Potobolo release perfectly and has left us eager to hear what else is in store from this young producer. Its a solid slice of Techno just how we love it, groovy, skippy, dark, you know the drill!
Anyway enough chat, onto the music.
The full compilation will be released on December 10th and you can check out the other tracks on the Local Music Group Soundcloud page by clicking here.
