The EP and track for CDM’s 28th release is supplied by ALHEK, known for his dark and pounding style and this is no exception. His own imprint Mechanical Thoughts is on the rise from launching last year.
“Blume03” has a forceful presence and starts as it means to go on with a driving and punchy kick line, before panning atmospheric sweeps show their face and the suspense builds. A pretty relentless track overall, but under it all, a strong tool like groove that can deliver the goods and no doubt mesh well in a set.

Austrian label Drowne Records are on the verge of their new release next week. Ran by Altberg & Tony Vegazz, they have a great underground ethos featuring artists like Sutter Cane, Chris Colburn, XHEI to Krenzlin and many more.
The track itself gets a stomping and slightly more melody driven twist, with sparse atmospherics that create a dreamy ambience. Slowly building tension and a euphoric edge take hold, with subtle soundscapes and hidden details, this can work in many stages of a DJ set and was our choice for this “DT:Premiere.”
