Zone Music is a haven for modern Techno. The imprint’s founders, Gesaffelstein & The Hacker, have carved somewhat of a niche alongside their fellow Frenchmen over at Bromance Records, pushing for the cutting edge, bouncy, bassy Techno that we’ve all learned to love. Forthcoming on Zone is a 3-track EP from Maelstrom — a promising young producer from the West coast of France with previous releases on Sound Pellegrino, dirtybird, and BNR Trax. The title track of the Resistance EP that we’re premiering today fuses a love of Detroit Techno fundamentals with a new age French twist, providing for a uniquely indefatigable production. Preview “Resistance” below and pick up the release on May 29th. √+

I know it was released in January but I have been loving this mix and decided to share it with all the GDD readers who may not have grabbed it yet.  With Brodinski on the decks you are guaranteed a good time and that’s why his Fabriclive installment has been such a biggie.  Containing a plethora of musical genres, the 75 minute mix features artist that have influenced Brodinski over the past two years.  Brodinski commented on the mix, stating, “I tried to include every track that has change my life over the last two years going from slow motion Techno to R’n'B, from backroom music to Acid House. ”

TRE’S PICKS

PSYCHEDELIC IDM

FuzZ – Deep *320

FuzZ never has produced anything I didn’t love and Deep is no exception. Deep lures you in with a complex and long intro, only to drop you into a mellow, groovy and psychedelic wonderland that is similar to the best Flying Lotus beats. This track is not one to miss folks, click the link and grab the MP3 now!

FEEL GOOD TECH-HOUSE

YO Bill – Teddy Jammin *320

YO Bill has been kind enough to give away this track exclusively on this weeks dirt! Teddy Jammin is as technical as it is catchy, which can only be a good thing. The track’s groovy vocals have been mixed in with YO Bill’s recognizably intricate percussion to bring you a guaranteed dance floor hit!

JAW DROPPING TECH-HOUSE

Colour – Frequencies Modulate *320

Many of the die-hard Tech fans have been watching Colour with amazement, it seems the English producer really can do no wrong. Don’t believe me? Grab Frequencies Modulate, take a listen and you can send me your apology later. The track takes you on a dark journey that resonates retro-house chords, complex percussion and intricate synthesis. Seriously, grab this jam!

MELODIC ELECTRO

THIEVES – Pousser *320

The up and coming Los Angeles natives, THIEVES always impress me and Pousser is no exception. It’s an original groove that speaks to the duo’s rock roots.

LATE NIGHT LATIN GROOVES

Desantarosa – Cuando La Noche Es Buena *320

Speaking of up and comers, can you believe this kid is only 15!? Keep an eye on Desantarosa, I predict big things!

In March it was announced that French Electro imprint Institubes, was to be disbanded, citing financial problems after eight years of sterling service to the underground electronic music scene. In bittersweet conjunction with the sad news, came another announcement: that the new Marble label headed by Para One, Surkin and Bobmo was to continue delivering tasty French electro in Institubes’ absence. This week we caught up with Jean-Baptiste de Laubier aka Para One, for an exclusive insight into the Marble imprint and what it has in store for the EDM community.

It all kicks off after the jump…

If you haven’t been watching out for Savage Skulls, then you need to look past the artists you “love” trying to make a thousand sounds into one bpm. They’ve just released an incredible 2-side EP on Sound Pellegrino: “Caravan/Watching You”. While Caravan was aimed to be the anchor track on the EP, the sleeper Watching You is an instant fav and has gotten huge recognition from Sound Pellegrino:

“We asked Savage Skulls to come up with a b-side to “Caravan” and they delivered “Watching You”, co-produced by Tony Senghore and featuring Sprinkle Juice. This one’s a filthy backroom anthem reminiscent of the best of Green Velvet, and early Tiga club bangers from –dare we say– the electroclash days? Minus the pompous new wave references and with added tech-funk sexyness + dangerously FAT kicks. For those too shy to cope with the Sprinkle Juice vocals but who still wanna hear the word “nasty” whispered in their ear, we included a dub.”

What’s up dirty dancers? This week Teki Latex & Orgasmic aka The Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team are flying in from France for a whistlestop tour of North America. A group of my buddies saw them play at Fabric a month ago and I never heard the end of it; they really throw down live, so don’t miss it. Here’s some tuneage to get you started:

Big ups to Taylor from KidCityBlog for the hook up
From the Vault:

Taking the London scene by storm at the moment, this is tropical house at it’s best. Sound Pellegrino is a French label founded by Orgasmic and Teki Latex, as an offshoot born out of the Institubes label. In the twelve months that Sound Pellegrino’s been around, it’s seen releases from Solo, L-Vis 1990, Brodinski’s mysterious Gucci Vump project, Bart Bmore and Nouveau Yorican. The guys are due to drop the next EP from Jean Baptiste De Laubier aka Para One in the next few months, so keep your eyes peeled for that. If this all doesn’t read like a year long success story, I don’t know what does.


Playing out under the name of the Sound Pellegrino Thermal Team, Orgasmic and Teki and are due to visit our shores in June which will see them play Arena in Hollywood on June 29th. With gigs and big releases in forthcoming months, I think it’s fair to say you can expect a whole lot more from these guys.


As they’re such nice people, they’ve given their critically acclaimed recent Raining Crystals’ mix to GDD™ for an exclusive first post…The mix which has only featured on the Sound Pellegrino blog before here, has been the 5th most downloaded session in Mixcloud history.

“When I play the current house and techno music that I like to my French “banging electro” friends they think it’s minimal. When I play it to minimal DJs they think it bangs too hard. We love hard stuff when it’s creative and groovy, and we love minimalist music when it’s not boring, more serious. “Teki Latex
