“The acid mix is trippy 😀 first i was scared by the bass-drum but after all i can´t wait to try this in a club…..The 303 in this is something different!” Oliver Bondzio, Hardfloor
“No messing about on these, solid dance floor tools” Paul Mac
As Bass Agenda Recordings approaches its 50th release championing underground Electro in a way that’s consistently caught the attention of Dave Clarke since its first release in 2013 and received support from the likes of The Hacker, Truss, The Black Dog and Laurent Garnier the label expands its armoury with its founder’s first electronic love – Techno.
The T-Series (T is for Techno) kicks off hard with ‘Scaring Horses’ by UK artist and DJ The Subdermic. 5 tracks of no-nonsense straight up Techno that pays attention to all the elements that fill a floor and get a crowd moving as one unified, pumped, sweating mass.
Just experience a few seconds of the acid hook, Goliath kick drum and swing of the Acid House version of ‘Scaring the Horses’ to learn that this is the real deal made by someone not locked away in their bedroom making Techno but rather an artist applying years of learning what works in the clubs the hard way – putting out records since 2001 and DJ’ing at the front, pulling no punches.
The original version of ‘Scaring the Horses’ put a rocket under Dave Clarke’s White Noise episode 549 not so long ago and got early support from Claude Young. The remaining three tracks show three sides to The Subdermic’s passion – hypnotic and infectious, putting their fingers on your synapses whilst kicking your ass, over and over again.
