- Exhale Records
Amelie Lens' EXHALE Records continues to deliver fiercely dynamic techno from the underground's most promising, rising and established artists with its second VA compilation.
Following EXHALE's first VA release in 2020, the party series turned label once again welcomes existing members, flourishing producers and blossoming new artists to the EXHALE family for its second various artists compilation.
Rounding off the third vinyl is London techno talent Charlie Sparks who equips the record with weapon 'Tataki', combining Japanese vocals with acid 303's, sirens and powerful kick drums. Next up we have Under Black Helmet with 'Rogue', an industrial style track that uses familiar dark themes characterized by distorted keys and commanding kicks. Brooklyn's Xiorro follows with 'Healing Colors' featuring Adrestia, with a yearning distorted vocal sample, protruding percussion and jagged synth keys. The finale is delivered by EXHALE mainstay Ahl Iver's 'There Is Always Light' - a trancy endeavour that juggles hi hats and cymbals with twinkling euphoric synth keys and long waning bass chords.
