With great pleasure Amalgm8 Musiq present our next release , AM8M027 – Nicolas Nox & Tanaka – Spectre ep. Both Nik and Jules ( aka Tanaka ) hail from Holland and have been making a name for themselves the past few years deejaying at some wicked nights around the country as well as honing their production skills at the same time. Here, on their full Amalgm8 debut they bring 2 fresh, deep dirty slices of techno , each with a big synthline that may just induce some ' Hands in the air ' . These originals are not as dark and hard as many of our past releases, but that makes them no less wicked. We are all about quality techno here at Amalgm8 Musiq, be that hard and nasty, or deep, melodic gear so we were more than happy to give these talented young dj/producers a full release and officially welcome them to the label family. THis release also comes with 5 outstanding and diverse remixes by some already well established Amalgm8 Musiq crew as well as welcoming MaPoK to the label . Paulo AV switched up his usual frenetic rapid techno style for a deeper more progressive techno rework and we love how he stuck his teeth into a new style and hit the nail right on the head, adding extra freshness to the release. Ekvilibrium records boss Jade Reed makes another very welcome return to remix duty for us and this time he turns up the filters and filthy bass synth action a few notches for a deeply dirty hypnotic trip that will get even the most jaded clubbers back on the dance floor for some more late night revelling. Up next we welcome back great friends Logan and Tony under their Primitive Fingerprint guise and they deliver hard and proper. Frenetic percussive drive , 808s and dirty funky acid lines propel this wild rework forward and dirty subs keep the filth alive while quirky fx and stabs fortify matters. Next we excitedly welcome another Dutch artist, MaPoK to the Amalgm8 family. Label boss Variant stumbled upon MaPoK's music late 2015 and he has been watching him very closely ever since. His signature sound is one of driving powerful percussive elements and dark atmospherics, fusing elements of dark minimal techno with more straight up driving techno and hitting a perfect balance of pure dark underground gear that will make you stand up and pay attention everytime you hear a MaPoK track, powerful throbbing stuff. We round out the release with a solid remix from Scottish veteran dj turned producer Matthew Smillie who brings a more raw and stripped down version to the table. Hypnotic drones and addictive synths are the main ingredients in this version, coupled with rising perc lines that emphasise the groove in all the right places.
