Broken Files EP

by Swardz



2017, another year, another variance in musical tastes as per usual. As there is no point in even attempting to keep up with trends or fads, we have decided to just bring you the greatest music we can find, regardless of stature. We have become known as a label that brings the world fresh new artists, and sounds, like no other label does and we are proud to do so, the reaction off our fans is enough to keep us going, we are forever thankful for the incredible support from day 1, through all of our changes, and experiments in the genre we love called techno. Calling to action this time for our 15th release, is the incredible Dubliner, Swardz, this being the artists debut EP on any label, asides from her own Bandcamp releases. Breaking in the broken files EP is the title track "Broken Files" is a homage to the hassle we went through getting this incredible EP together, there were so many tiny problems, but we worked through and brought this incredible EP to you. Second track is the driving "Lavender Salad" this track is good old traditional banging techno with persistent punishing percs, feels like a track from a time past, instant classic for us. Then finishing off the trio of original tracks is the immense "Prescott" the 143 banger is sure to get your blood boiling, the drops, the breaks, this track is perfection in many ways, the creativity throughout this EP is incredible. Last but not least we have a remix from Variance owner Scenedrone, remixing "Broken Files", with a higher tempo at 134 you can feel the intensity from it, quite similar to the original but the arrangement is vastly different, with Scenedrone putting his distinct touch on the mix. All around a really solid EP and something for all Techno aficionados, definitely one to be played for years to come.
