Zamilska – Duel 35

Last time I called her the princess of this genre but with a new song Zamilska proves that she is ready to become a queen and rule the empire of techno. Duel 35, a second single from her highly-anticipated upcoming debut album Untune, is once again a magnificent dark techno track heavily enriched with bass and accompanied by disturbing visuals set together by the artist herself.

The album will be released on the 26th of May and you can pre order it here or here.

Zamilska – Quarrel

The stagnation on OSOM has lasted for quite too long but fortunately we are back to break this silence with a spectacularly heavy track. Quarrel, a mixture of dark industrial techno and some finest bass beats, is a loud and promising single created by talented Polish artist Zamilska. This techno-princess is going to release her debut album Untune at the end of April and if it will contain just few more songs like Quarrel, every audience will be destroyed with the power of Zamilska’s bass.

Leif – Dinas Oleu

Leif Knowles, a Welsh producer performing simply under the name Leif, is a truly experienced musician as for the past 10 years he has released over 20 of singles and EPs, run a vinyl label UntilMyHeartStops and been a resident DJ at the Freerotation festival. But until now, there was one major thing missing in his rich CV – a full-length album. Fortunately things have changed and a debut LP called Dinas Oleu dropped yesterday.

The album has been named after a land in Wales and it indeed brings the atmosphere of hazy Welsh meadows but this record is far away from being just a regular ambient/chill release. There are more genres that play a role here, including mainly techno and house but you can also spot a sound of celtic harp played by Leif’s father! Everything together creates a great album but after so many years of making music at the highest level it just had to end up in this way.

Vir – White

As it often happens in this genre of music, you have to be patient to fully enjoy the beauty of the track. To help you understand this statement we are presenting a smashing techno song White. It evolves quite slowly but when it finally does, the listener is rewarded with an intensive beat that could be easily played at late hours during rave parties. The author is a 21-year-old producer from Milan who performs under the moniker Vir but his real name is Alvise Pirovano. And although he is now back in Italy, it was not the place where he started making music for real – just after Alvise turned 18, he moved to France and found inspiration in the city of Nantes which he describes as a wonderful place for young producers.

Pirovano is not at home for good as in 2014 he will change his living place again, this time moving to Montreal. Will this be another inspiring journey in his life?

Deetron – Bright City Lights (featuring Fritz Kalkbrenner)

We all know what happens when Fritz Kalkbrenner contributes his vocals to the fine techno beat – either we get a minimal anthem of the decade (Sky and Sand) or become addicted to the melancholy of the tune like in the case of Sascha Funke’s Now You Know in which Fritz appears at the very end of the track but that short part is still awesome enough to make you come back and wait for this moment again and again. And the list goes on – he has been also featured on the songs produced by Alexander Kowalski or Chopstick & Johnjon, not to mention the younger of the Kalkbrenner’s own compositions that include his deep voice.

History repeats itself with a brand new track that sees Fritz collaborating with another talented producer – Swiss artist Sam Geiser who is known as Deetron. With the years of experience in DJing and making music, a freshly released album Music Over Matter is just the second one in his career (which has started way back in the ’90s) but it does not mean that any of the new songs lacks something. In fact, there would not be this great atmosphere in Bright City Lights, if it were not for the excellent skills of Deetron. And if you do not necessarily fall for the majesty of  Fritz’s voice, we have good news for you – Music Over Matter brings some other amazing guest appearances, including Hercules and Love Affair or Ben Westbeech.

A short remark for the stats fanatics – yes, Deetron is a fifth Zürich resident to appear on OSoM this year.
