When Hans Bouffmyhre, boss of Sleaze Records, wanted to explore a new techno vibe, he created an alias called ‘Secluded’ to do so. Under the new moniker, he looked to Berlin and Detroit to find inspiration for a new form of techno, with a deep pounding beat, softened by dubby synth passages and soundscapes. With vinyl releases already out on EarToGround as well as the aforementioned Sleaze Records, it seems only fit that he announces a digital only EP called Beyond Thunder.
The project will be the first release under his alias in 2017, coming with two massive original tunes, ‘Beyond Thunder’ and ‘Witness’, both of which are peak time bangers.
The EP also features remixes by Roberto and Bleak. Roberto is a techno artist from London, who has been releasing great music on the likes of Fachwerk, Arts, Affin and his own imprint Fossil Archive. Bleak is similarly well known for his slick productions, bringing a deep hypnotic style. The Swedish producer has released a string of successful EP's for Delsin, Deeply Rooted House, and more recently, his own label Naura Records.
The five track EP is packed to the brim with techno bliss, and would make a perfect addition to any techno junkies collection. Beyond Thunder is out March 6.
