Camp North is a music producer from Boston (USA), that makes electronic music mixing some of his most favourite genres, such as ambient, techno and more danceable house style, such as My Bones, a track that has techno long and aggressive synth lines with a more “housy” groove, rhythm and vocals. It’s been released as a single early on January. It’s also Synths of Techno newest feature.
Overture is a track produced by Not Demure, released on the Ostinato EP by Flemcy Music. It has been remixed by JP Lantieri. Just like his previous tracks, with a progressive character, ideal for the dance floor and for the sofa, 8 powerful minutes full of good melodies and basslines, guaranteed. The track has not yet been released on digital streaming platforms like Spotify, but you can already check here in Synths of Eden and Soundcloud, as embedded.
From the same producer of Aliens Must Die, featured here earlier. KULTOFF from Rome, is back with a new single Don’t Sleep, released Friday, 25th of January by Capiroto Records. The single has two tracks inspired by acid techno, with the usual sequenced bass lines (famous for using Roland 303 groove machine). Nonetheless, with both tracks, KULTOFF dares to innovate, applying different style of vocals, such as Don’t Sleep, featuring Frank Sepioni and in Love Is Revolution featuring vocals plus acoustic guitars by Special West, with an amazing sequenced bass line. The drop of Love is Revolution makes you feel like in between psychedelia and acid techno at the same time, due to its guitars.
Besides being a techno music producer, KULTOFF is also a playlist editor, with his playlist Techno Kult in Spotify and in Instagram. So, today instead of embedding Synths of Techno, as usual, I’ll embed his playlist, Techno Kult instead:

Un Poco de Eso, is a techno by Italian producer Masino. It’s been released 11th of January by Thirsty5 Records, as it’s well clear by the cover art, as an ode to music indudstry’s objectification, or a simple satire of typical European receipts. Un Poco de Eso is a track full of energy, with vocals whispering in Spanish, “Yo quiero un poco de eso” or in English, “I want a bit of this”. All this energy in a danceable mood. Great drop, the ideal track for your DJ Mix. It’s been mixed and mastered by Gabriele Giudici.

It’s an underground material, not the fast tempo style of techno, being Iris a more danceable and groovy style of techno, with bass stabs summed by hi hats. Another great one for underground techno DJs all around.
A new feature for our techno playlist in Spotify:

Turning corners again, ea Collective goes clubbing. Many thanks to Uenay who remixed our rudimentary demo into an atmospheric dark underground soundtrack. Oliver Kern (ea Collective) then replied with an edit, strictly using only snippets from the original. Many thanks to belrost.com for the mystic cover collage and to Capiroto Records for releasing this piece.
“Amazonas Cruise is the result of ea-Collective’s collaboration with German music producers Uenay and Oliver Kern. Amazonas Cruise has originally been produced using a simple, short circuited mixer as music instrument, that later on has taken different forms after two new mixes. Amazonas Cruise shows us once again that there are no limits to independent music production, that music can come out of simple electronic devices such as a mixer.“
Capiroto Records, Amsterdam.
Released 21st December by Capiroto Records, Amazonas Cruise is a purely original single by ea Collective, Oliver Kern and Uenay, artists from Freiburg, Germany. The opening track, ACE, sounds like an exciting melody of a humming bird with marked distorted “kicks”. Although it’s experimental in the sound design, melody and composition. Overall it fits with the underground techno scene and can be highly danceable. The artwork was created by Belrost and it has an important role in making Amazonas Cruise so unique. Uenay’s version is even more underground, sounding more atmospheric and dares to dive even deeper in the audio production, adding voice over samples and field recordings (?). Amazonas Cruise ends with its original version by Oliver Kern, that served as the base inspiration for the two other versions by ea Collective and Uenay.
You can listen for the whole piece on Spotify:

Very atmospheric and chill style of techno music. The single has only been distributed via Bandcamp and Soundcloud, but it represents great material for fans of dub techno and it’s a promising project if you’re looking for more releases on the genre. In total it’s composed of two different tracks: By the Bins and Outer Circular.
