We have got a stunning debut lined up for magical number 10. Amsterdam's Stefan Vincent will release his first BALANS twelve by the end of april and we are really extremely excited to unleash these 4 gems into the world. Both Conflate Four and Five are about as trippy as it gets, reminding us of the golden 90's era of psychedelic Detroit and Berlin techno. But with a distinct Dutch flavour off course, think Steve Rachmad under his Ignacio monniker. Washes of synth arps are getting all the room they need to breath, expand and contract thanks to the ultra minimalistic grooves of both tunes. Stefan showcases a different side of himself on 'Fool Me Again' and 'Welder'. Two downtempo, electronic, ambient cuts. 'Welder' embraces futuristic synths and abstract, alienating sounddesign, while 'Fool Me Again' is Detroit melancholy at it's best: try and not get goosebumps. Marcelus - "Conflate Four is the one for me here... like this hypnotic arpegiator." Shadow Dancer (Paul) - "Gorgeous! 'Fool Me Again', in particular, has all the hallmarks of what elevates Detroit techno above cold, predictable, generic electronic music." Marcel Fengler - "These are great tunes from Stefan. Will be playing these out for sure..." Efdemin - "Conflate Four from Stefan is a nice track for me." Attrnag - (RTE RnaG, Ireland) - "Deeply trippy stuff here from Stefan. I like it." DJ Magazine, Spain - "Review in May Issue." Paul C - (Ibiza Voice) - "Excellent, from spaced out dubby ambience to insect funk." Ingo Boss (Cocoon) - "Vey nice weird music... great work from Stefan. Will pass to Sven Vath." Ewan Pearson - "I like Conflate Five...a LOT!! Nice work Stefan." Alan Fitzpatrick - "I LOVE this label!! Conflate Five will get my support here." Edouard de la Calle - "Conflate Five... That's the hot one on this ep...Without a doubt." Sandrien - "Great EP! Been playing Conflate Four for a while now and it's a bomb! Good Job Stefan!" Layo - "I'm liking Conflate Five here... As you say, like old Ignacio. Good job." Joel Mull - "Great Release. Nice concept and over all great tracks. Loving the intro/bleepy tracks too. Will def be using in my sets here and there. ?" Patrice Baumel - "Strong debut from Stefan, I like all four tracks. Lean, mean and timeless." Andrew Grant - "Conflate Four is one hell of a beast!! Great job." Pfirter - "Good ep again on Balans. Conflate Five will get a spin for sure, but my main pick here is Welder, will use it as a tool for sure." Golden River Show - (East Village Radio, NYC, USA) - "Within 5 seconds of hearing Conflate Four I knew immediately it was a play out tune." Paul C - (Ibiza Voice) - "Excellent, from spaced out dubby ambience to insect funk." Andrew W - (Pulse Radio) - "So trippy and surreal, love this shit!" Raveline Magazine, Germany - "Considering for a review." Benny Rodrigues - "Aaaaahh, finally the record that most people think is me, is out.

Guy Andrews - "Some very nice textures in all these tracks. Thanks guys, gonna try them out!" Untold - "Yeah, this kills it!! Trippy arps forever - will play Conflate Four and Five.. LOTS!" Al (Shadow Dancer) - "Fool Me Again is my favourite, full of warm Detroit arps and pads and skittering hi-hats.

Feels like it's made just for me! Thanks." Gabriel Ananda - "Pretty nice stuff from Stefan. Haven't heard music like this for 10 years or so. Keep it up! Thanks."
