Outlook Festival returns to Croatia this September after last year’s best ever event to date, a celebratory fusion of dub, reggae, hip-hop, drum ‘n’ bass, garage, house and more on the dazzling Adriatic coast. Joining the dots between musical legends right through to the next generation of up and coming talent, again some of the finest live acts and DJs descend upon a 19th century fort for five days and nights of amazing music. Close to the historic city of Pula in Croatia’s northern region of Istria, the now iconic Outlook sets the agenda with a world-class array of performers in a collection of truly spectacular locations, set in and around an abandoned fort. Choose from a dungeon, a courtyard, a moat, a boat, the beach or the festival’s main stage set on a harbour. Outlook combines a heady mix of fun in the sun and under the stars as a dedication to sound culture, which has just revealed its first wave of names.

Kryptic Minds ‘Namaste EP’ (Osiris Music uk)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 13, 2013 by dk

Kryptic Minds 'Namaste EP'Label bosses Kryptic Minds present Osiris Music uk’s latest release, the ‘Namaste’ EP. Few have had the degree of impact on the underground dance music community that the duo have had, with their impossibly dark sub-sonic explorations inspiring listeners and producers across the globe for over a decade.

‘Nebula’ is a stripped-back affair, with a solid riddim fighting waves of distorted bass. Atmospherics and a short motif that break up the track are quickly silenced by the ever present pulse, reminiscant of modern techno. Althoughly more rhythmically sparse, ‘To Feel’ kicks off with a tense, cinematic intro which quickly gets outed by a heavy kick and sub which feels engineered and crafted for one purpose – bass bin pressure.

2012 was a busy year for Kryptic Minds, with the duo releasing a number of their own tracks and A&Ring a series of rising producers to sign with the label, as well as remix work for Ninja Tune’s Amon Tobin (following on from their previous remix of Emika’s ‘Count Backwards’ in 2011), collaborations with Paul Mac on his debut Osiris release and their ‘Askum’ 12” and ‘The Talisman’ releases on Tectonic.

Support comes from Youngsta, V.I.V.E.K, Pinch, Mala, Icicle and Amit.


Release date: 25th March 2013
Format: 12” / Digital

Photek & Pinch ‘Acid Reign’ / ‘M25FM’ Photek Productions [PPRO16VS](Preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2012 by dk

Two collaborations between two highly respected producers. Photek’s ‘Closer’ marked the 50th release on Pinch’s Tectonic last year, and some time in the studio together has produced these standout tracks. Acid Reign first appeared in January on Pinch’s FabricLive mix compilation, his ‘dubplate version’ described by Fact mag as “a slow-burning half-stepper with a twisted acid melody fighting for air in an oil spill; as claustrophobic as you like, basically.” M25FM appears on Photek’s instalment to the highly respected DJ Kicks compilation series, it’s another acid-tinged track, taking us into much deeper territory.

Meanwhile, JD Twitch, one half of Optimo, opts for a warped and slo-mo, acid-licked stomp – a consummate exhibition of his musical breath and knowledge.
