Not going to lie about it: either you'll love this one, or you'll hate it. We go oldskool with a new vibe this time. Produced on our own Belgian soil by one of my oldest and dearest friends: Manone. He has been causing mayhem and destruction in the Hard Techno scene for many years and played all over Europe. For some bizarre reason he had not yet worked for us, so it was well overdue to remedy that. The first track, "The Old Era Rises", is a weird combo meal of jacking Techno beats ( like Truncate ) with the analogue sounds like you'd find on releases like the previous Coincidence by Energun. A mean mofo indeed, holding nothing back and only for the daredevils amongst us. "Organ Shifter" was what first got my attention, for some reason this one sounds totally like Dj Rush in my head. Sing Grind me baby, grind me baby, grind me baby to this and you'll get the idea :) The shuffle button is full on in this one. Nervous stabs build up to a Bonzai'ish break and blast off in a cloud of dust. Makin' luv. The third piece "That's My Name" is a very oldskool sounding weird track. High stabs, distorted kicks and hihats screaming their lungs out. The belgian heritage is so apparent in this one you'd think this was a re-issue of some old Dance Opera release. You can easily get away with playing this on a retro party. Brilliant and stirring some memories of the Belgian Golden Era. Finally we have "Charge Continuum" which sounds again a lot like Energun and that typical russian hard vibe we love. Taking a lot of twists an turns this time, a weird but hard as nails mindf... ehm... fur. Mastered by Dimitri Andreas, who was last seen buying a truck full of fluorescent helmets and glow sticks, so I guess he went for it too. Enjoy! And if you bothered to read this: we'll be back at Tomorrowland this year, and Manone is closing the stage! Woohoo!
