Release date

Berlin-based imprint Ecke Records has gone from strength to strength over its past three releases, an inaugural VA followed by EP’s from Squallfront and Data Room, in the process cementing itself as a now go to label for leftfield leaning electronica and each record further draws you in thanks to the uniquely designed full sleeve artwork by Ben Fables. Here we see Ecke deliver its fourth release courtesy of Xantrax, a Marseille-born producer and one half of Squallfront alongside the label-founder. Taking the lead is ‘Tekline’, a murky, unfurling cut fuelled by off-kilter tribal drum work, bubbling bass delays and modulating synth flutters. Addison Groove steps up next on remix duties, reshaping ‘Tekline’ with choppy vocal cuts, dubbed out chord stabs and organic percussion floating atop the originals hypnotic groove. ‘Linetek’ opens the flip, as the name would suggest acting as a counterpart to the lead track, taking a 4/4 approach rhythmically while introducing a similar modulating bass line alongside chanting vocals. ‘0121’ then rounds out the package, an angsty, dynamically unfolding composition laid out over four and a half minutes with droplet synth delays, heady bass swells, spoken word vocals and crunchy broken drums.

Over the last couple of months, the records of Berlin-based duo CYRK have become a hot commodity within DJ circles. Their releases on Rawax and Vakant are firm favorites of selectors like Helena Hauff, Steffi, Alienata, Laurent Garnier,Slam, Maceo Plex, Solid Blake or Len Faki. Time Zero, CYRK's new label (together with their friends Flash Fab and Lad Caduceus), marks the next step for the prolific duo. Dreamscience, Time Zero's inaugural EP, features five tracks that traverse CYRK's influences in style, adding their own trademark twist. Tracks like "Collateral" and the eponymous cut are diving deep into Detroit's electro heritage, while "CS70m" takes cues from classic electronica and IDM. "Automotive" is a throbbing broken beat work-out with plenty of soul and "Monument", the EP's closing tracks is a string-laden journey in itself. Get ready for the next chapter in CYRK's irresistible ascent!
