Ansome Returns to Perc Trax for Second Album, “Hounds Of The Harbour”

Perc Trax’s resident sonic explorer, modular innovator and all round Cornish bad boy Ansome returns to the label for his second album, following on from 2016’s Stowaway. Thankfully a move to Berlin a few years ago has not dulled or diluted his sound as he returns sharper and more focussed than ever.

In the three years since Stowaway he has toured the world as a live act, a DJ and also with his collaborative performances with Perc. Away from clubs and festivals he has stirred up a hornet’s nest of online opinion with his British Steel EP and continued to grow his own SLAM label into an essential source of uncompromising techno.

Saad Ayub Pays Homage to Amsterdam Nightclub “Shelter” With Latest EP

The annual Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE) is upon us, and today Toronto’s Saad Ayub will be dropping his Shelter EP ahead of the hectic week of panels, meetings, events, mixers and incredible music. This four-track EP, is Saad’s ode to the conference week, with the title track dedicated to the infamous Shelter nightclub located in the basement of the A’DAM Tower.

Debuting his newfound love and productions of melodic techno, Saad’s creations are hypnotizing dance-floor worthy pieces of art, ready to take you to a higher consciousness.

‘Shelter’, the title track of the EP, is the second collaboration between Saad Ayub and Andy Teixeira; it is a melancholic piece of melodic techno with a dynamic arpeggiated climax.

‘Réveille’ is a dark, moody techno track characterized by its use of vocal chops and a room-filling stab lead.

‘Face to Face’ is a driving techno track with a progressive influence, complete with ominous floating pads, and a throbbing bassline.

‘This’ is a tribal-flavoured techno track, featuring a battery of syncopated drums and a hypnotizing vocal.

We grabbed a chat with Saad to talk about the EP and the influences behind it.
