DESCRIPTION:
4 Track EP Of Old School Flavad Techno From Joey Beltram & Hard Tougher Tracks, from Weska, Zimmz & Woo York

A testament to the growth of Adam Beyer’s scene-leading label, Drumcode annual A-Sides Vol.8 is the brand’s biggest yet.

The 25-track strong compilation features standout cuts Beyer has received over the last 12 months, but been unable to find room for in Drumcode’s regular release schedule, such is the volume and high standard of music that’s submitted.

The highlight-rich compilation includes Jamie Jones & Darius Syrossian’s buzzy Drumcode debut ‘The Grid’, Nicole Moudaber’s first DC release in 5 years with the mesmerizing ‘This Is Us’, Will Clarke’s bass-drenched re-work of Adam Beyer & Bart Skils ‘Your Mind’ and Joey Beltram’s first Drumcode release in 11 years with the retro-tinged ‘Can You Feel It’.

The beloved Alan Fitzpatrick returns to the fold with the searing ‘Heiße Rakete’, while the exciting Hyperloop project links up with Upercent for the slinky loop-driven ‘Rouge’, alongside label mainstays Layton Giordani, who drops the stirring chord-driven ‘Chrome’ and Wehbba with ‘Mantra’, combining techno classicism with future-focused groove.

There’s a troupe of debutants donning the Drumcode jersey for the first time, including BEC, Shelley Johansson, Avision, Zimmz, Woo York, SAMA (in a terrific collaboration with Secret Cinema) and Ilija Djokovic, who delivers a shimmering highlight with ‘Aura’, a particular favourite of Beyer’s over the last year. Raxon also debuts on the label after a couple of quality additions to the Truesoul back catalogue.

Exciting young guns Weska and Juliet Fox bring heat to the compilation, while Veerus and Timmo follow up strong DC releases with a repeat dose. Elsewhere faithful contributors Ramon Tapia, Jay Lumen, Luca Agnelli, Marco Bailey and Mark Reeve craft powerful dancefloor weapons.

Joey Beltram (born 6 November 1971) is an American DJ and record producer, known best for the pioneering techno music recordings "Energy Flash" and "Mentasm". Though he has never belonged to any particular urban scene, he has nevertheless fascinated his audience through his musical independence. Nor can he as a “non-Manhattaner”, be counted as part of the New York scene: ”...with my productions I have to have my own sound”. His tracks present what he sees, whatever is running through his mind at the time or things he has lived through and experienced in all the years as a musician and DJ: the ups and the downs, the violence and confusion and of course, the feeling. His music carries many subtle undertones... Joey Beltram grew up in Queens, New York, the son of a Mexican father and an Italian mother. In his tough surroundings, he stood his own ground and won the necessary respect on the street with his graffiti art. As a ‘subway surfer’ he belonged to a generation of kids whose images in the New York subways show obvious traces of their “feeling for survival and life”. “Poes” is his pseudonym, which still can be found, once in a while, as the signature under some of the big, colorful graffiti works. That urge is still there, but now he uses a different outlet for his creative energies: music. Back in 1983, at the age of twelve, he stood behind a turntable for the first time, and by 17 he had recorded his first maxi single -- for Nu Groove in New York. Then followed a series of releases for Atmosphere Records and Easy Street, NY - and Trax Records in Chicago, under the project name Cold Six (“Forgotten Moments” - 1989). This “first official EP”, as he calls it, established contact for him with the Belgian label R&S Records, which ended up signing him to a recording contract. At the end of 1989 Beltram went to Gent, Belgium as the first American musician to work there for a longer period. The result of his cooperation with Mundo Music as Second Phase was “Vortex” and “Mentasm”. “Let It Ride”, released under the project name Direct, opened his way into the US, “with a little detour through Europe”. But his worldwide breakthrough came with the release of “Energy Flash” in 1990. This Techno classic also succeeded in getting the new club generation onto dance floors in no time at all, again and again. By now a 20-year-old, the album “Beltram Vol. 1” (1991) helped to push the Techno revolution forward, and eliminated any of the early doubts that perhaps he was only a short-lived, one-hit phenomenon. At the end of 1990 musical differences between himself and label boss Renaat resulted in a mutually agreed separation between Beltram and R&S Records. Joey then concentrated on his career as a DJ, toured all over Europe and America, and continued working in his studio, even though he allowed himself a two-year break from any new releases. In 1992, Beltram made his comeback on Warp Records with the EP “Calibre”. Several releases followed and their success stabilized his position in the fast-moving dance scene. By 1995 he had established his long-standing relationship with Tresor Records in Berlin, releasing a succession of excellent maxi EP‘s (“Gameform“, “Instant“, “Metro“) and the now legendary, full-length album “Places“ (Tresor.078), re-released in 1998. The same year he delivered the critically-acclaimed maxi “Ball Park“ (Tresor.090) that still retains its place in most international techno DJs‘ record cases today. In 1999 Beltram founded his own label STX for which he continues to record under his own name and as JB3. Six years elapsed until his next release on Tresor. Starting with the stunning maxi “The Beyonder“ (Tresor.213) in the summer of 2004, he followed up with the album and winter world tour “The Rising Sun“ (Tresor.214) in October 2004: the new Beltram long-player brims with the physical power that earmarks his unique electronic style. "The Rising Sun" exudes incomparable freshness and sexiness that has definitely been missing last few years in electronic music. Read more on Last.fm.

«Live techno music». Regardless of the meaning one may have vested this expression with, any of those definitions could fit a description of Kiev-based duo Woo York. Armed with drum machines, samplers and groove boxes, Denis and Andrey are experienced enough to know how to bring a dance floor to life. Being the residents of the BSF promo group and frequent guest act at the legendary underground institution that «Cinema Club» is, Woo York undoubtedly represent one of the brightest stars of Ukrainian techno scene. Their recent activities prove that in full extent with the main evidence being their shift towards the more «mature» side both sound-wise and in terms of technological development. Needless to say that in advance of their debut vinyl record release Woo York’s music has already been critically acclaimed by several prominent techno players out there. Dave Clarke includes their tunes to his «White Noise» radio show, Xhin spins their record at «Berghain», while the fact of being supported by the likes of DVS1, Peter Van Hoesen, Vince Watson, Ben Sims, Norman Nodge, Perc and Shifted just speaks for itself. Hence, it was no big surprise that the remixes for some of their tracks have been provided by Samuli Kemppi, Unbalance and Audio Injection – by all appearances, we are witnessing a techno history running its natural course here.
