Our musical brother from the north and Finland's finest techno export Samuli Kemppi joins ranks with BALANS. Ever since his classic 'Vangel' release on Ostgut Ton we have been huge fans of Samuli's sound. Needless to say we are very proud to have on board. He delivers two outstanding track with the trademark Samuli sound: scifi, hypnotic spacefunk. Both tunes sound futuristic and nostalgic at the same time, with warmth, textures and industrial cold grooves fighting for the foreground. That's what we love about his music: the ambiguity. A sense of estrangement wich feels so familiar. Listening to his music makes you feel.. well.. Lost! It's the contradictions in his music that fit the BALANS glove all to well. On remix duties we find two Dutch heavy weights hiding behind their puristic techno alter egos. First of is ROD, by some better known as Benny Rodrigues. Under this pseudonyme he has been making waves the last 2 years with releases on Klockworks, Drumcode, CLR a.o. wich have been rinsed by the biggest names on the circuit. He reworked Seeker into a bigroom DJ tool wich have the sole purpose of destroying floors when encountered. His musical companion Darko Esser put on his Tripeo mask for a subtler aproach, like can be expected from his own vinyl only releases. But make no mistake the target of his in 'Search' interpretation is the same. More hypnotic perhaps, but with the same heads on approach towards any dancefloor in mind.
