Melbourne-based producer and DJ Juan Tellez takes the listener on a darker, deeper and “more restrained” journey through techno and minimal soundscapes.
Our last release of 2014 finally sees Nikolozi join Newclear MusicÂ as the title artist, after several remix appearances.
Nikolozi kicks off the EP with the “Drinking Blood Mix” – a raw, organic electro rearrangement of the original Counter. NZ/Canada duo Absolute Value & bLazem finally join the Newclear roster with their melodic DNB take on the original. Juan TellezÂ is back and follows up with more foundation-shaking bottom-heavy techno. NortÂ returns the line-up with more slick techy house grooves. nsu rounds up the EP with a blend of deep dubstep and proggy breaks.
