Amelie Lens’ EXHALE imprint launches with a myriad of uncompromising techno tracks from the underground’s finest established and aspiring artists.
EXHALE’s much anticipated first release continues the legacy of the EXHALE event series with a fifteen-track compilation featuring old and new friends from each avenue of the underground. With a shared love of rave culture, the label is a platform for the forward-thinking while simultaneously paying homage to techno’s foundations. With this in mind, Amelie gathers familiar faces and upcoming artists to deliver the future sounds of techno.
Spanning to each dark corner of the technosphere, the compilation fosters a range of sound that exhibits each artist’s production taste and background – showcasing the producing exports of artists such as Airod, Regal, DYEN and Amelie Lens herself.
It’s of no surprise that perhaps techno’s most exciting and unstoppable force in Hadone (aka Jeremy Bonnet) leads the line with his unique blend of power and emotion. Produced under his Mehen alias, the Frenchman’s 90 second snippet released on EXHALE’s Soundcloud shows exactly why he is so revered.
Truthfully though, the entire release is shaping up to be worth the time of any fan of the genre.
EXHALE’s VA 1 is available from 13th November – listen to the snippet of Mehen’s incredible contribution below!
