Indeed, the secretive producer PRESTON FLEX releases on this lab a new electro project very close to the ‘Garage’ music. His new E.P entitled “Cold Love” features 4 great tracks mixing Electro, Idm & Garage. The peoples who listened spacey Drum’n’Bass from labels like METALHEADZ will be enthusiastic by this hybrid way. For others who aren’t familiar with Garage & D’n’B, front of the quality of this production, we suggest at least to listen the E.P …and more if you love it. Step by step, some releases like this one are pushing the level of electro music to an interesting unknown zone. Recommended!

CULTIVATED ELECTRONICS is a secretive label records producing more quality than quantity.
In few years, this great laboratory has developed its own sound line grounded on some specific electronics distortions. Following up this way, the Uk pioneer KURT BAGGALEY aka SCAPE ONE releases a new vinyl titled “Potent Mutagen” including two electro tracks along with some remixes. As usual with this prolific artist, the music is well produced and features a lot of sound effects inviting the listener to trip in his futuristic world. The other side of this E.P introduces also two amazing remixes signed by SYNC 24 & DYNAREC. Indeed these producers pushed the bass and the tempo of the KURT’s spacey music to made something more heavy, more danceable for cyborgs. Thus this release proves again the Electro stays a powerful & weird music stimulating the mind as much as the foots … and all that with no compromise, please! Hotly Recommended!
