Affekt Recordings has its base in Frosinone, Italy and has been ran by Alex Dolby since 2012 culminating a passion for raw, hypnotic techno. The label’s back catalogue of music has seen artists such as Pär Grindvik, Alex Bau, Mental Resonance, VSK and MTD make contributions.
The latest release compiles fresh works from label head Alex Dolby himself for his fourth artist album entitled “Fault System” having released music on labels outside of his own like Emmanuel’s ARTS, DJ Emerson’s Micro.fon as well as Shinedoe and 2000 and One’s Intacto imprint, his educated sound is much loved around the world.
A love for analogue sounds, rough textures, and tough rhythms play a huge part in the album’s dystopian aesthetic that is as functional for club weaponry as it is a collection of abstract cuts for electronic music lovers.
Easing in gently with “Intro Signal” Alex experiments with a sparse sound design element before moving into the up-tempo Detroit influenced drones of “The Day After”. Following this things heat up with “Standard Process” being a manic monster, and “Modern Pascal” introduces a style switch up to a two step beat. Title track “Fault System” is a throbbing sonic trip and “The Afghan Express” is a blistering techno ride.
“Wild Yard (Reprise Mix)” sees a special release of a new edit that was originally supported by Ben Klock. The eighth track “Lunatic Boost” pushes a raw and broken beat, whilst “Chord Memories” injects vibrant energy once again, then closes proceedings is the jazzy style break of “Outro Signal”.
This album is a powerful statement of intent from a veteran producer that wishes to make a mark with another accomplished selection after being active in the scene for over 15 years.
“I start my career in 1991, I was 18 years old in France , I was playing commercial music, funk, disco, 80’s, euro dance, rock, pop, groove & RnB, and then I discover electronic music, first was trance music and few years after it was house music and from house music came deephouse. It was a kind of revelation.
In 2001 I start composing. It took me years to create something good and nice.
I released few tracks in different labels but the consecration was in 2016 when I sign my first album «Time lapse» on my favorite label of all time: Plastic City!
And now this is my 3rd album and this one is much more better than the two others . It’s the album of maturity.
because I give a lot of myself on this album…”

Austrian Ken Hayakawa keeps up Stripped Down Records’ fine run of form with two new tracks that get remixed by John Tejada and Whitesquare. Superbly soothing opener ‘Sonic Wave’ is a brilliantly warm and spaced out deep house track that voyages into the cosmos. American tech house titan and long-time Kompakt associate John Tejada steps up to remix and takes things even deeper, with pulsing, sonar-like acid blips and icy hi hats all working on melting your mind as warm, gurgling bass drives things forwards. It is Italian producer and DFTD, 2020 Vision and Freerange house master Whitesquare who then remixes. He brings plenty of spine-tingling chords to his version, which is deep yet driven, with layer upon layer of rich sound all oozing real soul. Hayakawa then finishes things off in style with ‘Lost,’ a brilliantly atmospheric track that is cavernous, dubbed out and finished with exquisite ambient details that cannot help but calm you. This is a beautiful EP of deep, dynamic house music.

digedo welcomes Offline, IMPVLSE, Konnekkt Records and Schallinterferenz Records to the family!
OFFLINE was created by Brad Wilder, Christopher Groove and Benjamin Sagan in the recent past. A simple meeting in a bar had produced an exchange of previously unspoken musical urges and desires that would prove you need some chalk with your cheese sometimes.
It unravelled in the Groove Vienna HQ, a flickering thankfully fully soundproofed studio that was so smoke filled it made the Beijing smog look like a pleasant morning in the Maldives. Apparently the expensive acoustic treatment had factored this in and so it proved over these next fun filled weeks and months.
Offline was conceived. Events, gigs, a record label and other stuff. It would look beautiful and breathe quality. Direction and design that would be utterly distinctive. An abandoned puppy was rescued from the wintry streets and named Walter– it was the one occasion they had to walk to the takeaway as the phones had gone offline. Offline would be rather red with neon notes and look gorgeous whatever it put on display. An umbrella that would allow not only the partnership but the individuals to express and flourish – and loads of other stuff. A record label. Home cooked music to distract and to dance to. Freedom for and collaboration with fellow travellers. Music for sharing and evolving and stir frying with as little oil as possible.Events that would also be quite red and look devastatingly good because of a cutting edge approach to design linked to a sound that went and was Offline. Smaller gigs and collaborations that stretch out somewhere else and unselfconsciously explore locations and opportunities.
Upcoming releases from Felix da Housecat & Jamie Principle
