Amelie Lens' EXHALE imprint launches with a myriad of uncompromising techno tracks from the underground's finest established and aspiring artists.
EXHALE's much anticipated first release continues the legacy of the EXHALE event series with a fifteen original track compilation featuring old and new friends from each avenue of the underground. With a shared love of rave culture, the label is a platform for the forward-thinking while simultaneously paying homage to foundations of techno. With this in mind, Amelie gathers familiar faces and upcoming artists to deliver the future sounds of techno.
Opening the second EXH001 vinyl is Berlin based producer Klangkuenstler with 'Engelsblut', an oscillation of stabbing keys, sinister drones and unrelenting hi-hats before transitioning into 'Take Two' from REMY-X, whom Amelie discovered after his stand-out EP on Coincidence Records last year. DJ/Producer at the forefront of French techno Antigone proceeds with 'U Tell Me', along with Brecc who incorporates industrial elements and thundering bass with track 'Vox', continuing with Antwerp producer Lukas Firtzer's 'Excessus', packed with shifting percussions and tenacious melodies.
