Melbourne-based producer and DJ Juan Tellez takes the listener on a darker, deeper and “more restrained” journey through techno and minimal soundscapes.
Haszari joins the Newclear Music’s “Atomix” series with a deep, thumping, techy selection that has an easy flow. Lose yourself in the acid-house laced techno sprinkled with sunny barbecue vibes.
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.

A long time coming, Newclear Music is proud to finally bring you one of the finest ever pieces by Micah D. WolfeÂ (akaÂ Stray Theories, based out of South Island, NZ) â€“ the ultimate uplifting drum’n’bass cut, “Higher”.
Opening the release is the originalÂ rush-inducingÂ Stray Theories version. Then,Â Soul Science are back again and this time take us for a spin into nu-skool jungle territory but still keeping with their signature liquid flavour. Following up is Melbourne-based Cantabrian Nort, who contributes a thumping, techy rinse-out. Rounding off the EP, nsu again leans to the experimental side and drops a soaring track referencing dub, jungle, dubstep, and live electronica – a number that heavily features in his live sets.
