Futra 005: Astroteric – Departure EP with remixes by Edge City and Kloak
Futra features the debut release from Southern California artist Astroteric. A long time contributor to the stateside dance music scene via various pseudonyms and collaborations, Astroteric is now on course to blur the lines of genres with his use of low end basslines that move your soul and melodies that leave you on repeat.
Kloak (formerly known as EMU) is the new music project from Los Angeles based Eric Ulvog, a veteran DJ, producer and designer. Along with the remix of Astroteric’s “Inter”, he also has an original release forthcoming on M.U.D. recordings early 2014 featuring vocals by Ill Chill, paired with a remix by Mesck. Los Angeles locals can look forward to more music and events by Kloak in the coming year.
Minneapolis based Edge City make their debut as remixers for Astroteric’s “Vox”. Edge City is two urban allies finding refuge in the edge of the city, raised up on the early hardcore breaks and UK Garage of the 90’s rave movement, and original members of the late Steppers Alliance Crew. Paul “Easyrider” Allen comes from the world of Drum & Bass and UK Garage where he cut his teeth as a Junglist. Aaron “Bliss” Hart (Havens+Hart, Stranjjur, Mother Recordings, MEME) has a long history of house and UK Garage. Together they create a unique sound that proves to be a powerful combination of House Rhythms, Drum & Bass atmospheres, and Garage basslines.
