? Listen: Hanz - Mix for KALTBLUT Magazine

Since Reducer, the thing that’s interested me MOST about Hanz’s take on musical fluidity is the unpredictability of it. You got producers that flip what people usually expect in hilarious grandeur. Then there’s those intent on just HARD going in. Show More Summary

? Listen: ku?ka - “Unconditional” (§ODA l??i??t??e? Remix)

Australian producer §ODA l??i??t??e? (Yes! Have you seen a better collection of characters?) makes the dreamy “Unconditional” even dreamier. The original (by Australian producer/vocalist ku?ka) moves slowly and sensually, and by increasing...Show More Summary

Premiere: Katrina Stonehart - “A4”

Following up the previously premiered “A2,” Fire Talk Records has let loose “A4” – a barrage of power electronics pulsing behind sputtering growls from guest vocalist, The Predator.
