18.1Hollen – Safari (Moan)

Hollen Safari Artwork

Italy really does have a knack for giving birth to some seriously talented producers and Aniello Federico aka Hollen is no exception. This young artist has been releasing music since 2009 but really broke through last year with a string of releases on some of the biggest labels in the underground including Kling Klong, Trapez and Octopus to name just a few. Moan are the latest label to sign up Hollen’s talents and we can see why.

The lead track from the E.P titled ‘Safari’ is huge. The groove is relentless and is a perfect slice of peak time tech house. We have always been impressed with Hollen’s music, his drums really stand out and he has definitely managed to carve out a unique sound that has rightly got the attention of some of techno’s biggest labels and artists including Richie Hawtin, Dubfire and Sian.

Check out the track on Soundcloud below.

16.12Victor Calderone – Into The Void (Arjun Vagale Remix)

Arjun Vagale delivers yet another BOMB! We first posted about Arjun last month after his track “Lets Go” really caught our attention. This remix for Victor Calderone on his label Waveform Recordings follows on from “Lets Go” perfectly. The track has a constant pulsing low end that would really work a crowd into a frenzy and the groove is very tight. All of the elements in the track just sit in the right place working together to produce a very solid slice of peak time techno.

We are not surprised Victor employed Arjun’s remix skills for the latest release on his label. The label has had some very solid releases this year including a huge remix from NOYZ favourites The Junkies. The track that Arjun has remixed is actually an original track by the label boss himself and is a huge track in its own right which you can check out here. The package will be available on Beatport on December 18th.

Check out Arjun’s remix below.

We are looking forward to interviewing Arjun soon and can’t wait to hear what he has planned for the future. Of course we hope it involves plenty more tracks of this calibre!

As always please support the artists and labels!
