A.G.M! & Qüintrix! What? I agree! This could be the welcome message of a time traveling alien. It’s not though. It’s the alias of two Spanish based producers over at Unusual Sound. You have to admit, these names aren’t exactly promo friendly. You’ll probably don’t even remember them after you read this post. Or maybe you do… Let me tell you this, I think this track actually might be good enough to remember these guys. A.G.M! & Qüintrix

As an early Christmas present, we would like to present to you guys two brand new exclusive mixtapes made by two friends of Phase02!
The first one was made by Berlin based Daniel Gorton a.k.a. Hog, who already passed here in november with his first EP called “Not quite an albatross” (check it again here). It’s a superb mix, partly because of the excellent track choice but also because of the way it was mixed together! This is how he describes the mix himself: “It’s quite eclectic and journeys through various styles of techno and house with a touch of electronica.” Hit the “read more” button below to see the playlist…
Then we got Thomas Neyens a.k.a. Kiani & his Legion. He was also featured here a while ago (right here) and now he delivers yet again a steamy 4 hour set which brings us a flood of deep house and techno! Here’s how he describes the result: “The mix includes old and new tracks, I didn’t really prepare it beforehand or edit it afterwards, I mixed it on low volume, so cut me some slack, don’t expect an ultrapolished ableton ‘whoop whoop’ sonic orgasm. It’s just simple house, reminiscent of the true culture of the night, when the DJ was still human…” From driving tech-housers and exotic grooves, to jackin’ stuff, but still with that deliciously deep, clubby vibe. If you would like to know a track ID, do leave a comment.
I highly recommend you both of these tapes, you simply gotta love them! Oh yes and before I forget, Merry Christmas to you all! Read more
Here on Phase02 we’re always open to a lot of different genres. So this post is dedicated to the beauty of music in general! You’ll find some techno, tech-house, dubstep and even eurodance! So go on, don’t wait, start reading!
Swedish producer Tony Senghore has released his latest EP this week, called Score! It features six great techno electro’ish house tracks. The following tune, called “Ravers March”, is also part of the EP. It starts a bit hesitatingly with a piano doing the intro but it steadily builds up to a superb beat! Buy the whole EP right here!

I Feel Love is the newest EP of Electrosexual & Mz Sunday Luv. Electrosexual, who has recently worked with Shunda K. (of Yo! Majesty), Peaches, David Carretta, Kiko & Scream Club, now teams up with Berlin’s wild multi-artist vocalist Mz Sunday Luv. The featured track here made me think of Kosheen meeting Miss Kittin in a forrest with Proxy playing some beats in the background. It’s also a form of eurodance I think, if that ever was genre, which to me always sounded pretty weird actually.. do check it out! The whole EP, that features 5 tracks, was released on november 15th. You can buy it here!

The brand new EP from Kraddy, called Labyrinth, was digitally released on November 9th. For those of you who are not so familiar with the name Kraddy, he’s a former member of L.A. based The Glitch Mob and known for his experiments with music genres. Labyrinth, released in collaboration between Alpha Pup Records and Minotaur Recordings, is a crowd moving EP loaded with powerful rhythms, epic symphonics, and savage gauntlets of body-throttling bass… a style Kraddy likes to call, “Led Zeppelin 3000.” The 5-track original collection includes elements of hip hop, dubstep, dancehall, and rock that are woven together to create a brutally pounding EP. The featured track here is called “into the labyrinth” and will most certainly make your head go up and down! Oh and do turn your speakers up to actually feel the track! Buy it here!

To end, I’d like you guys to have a listen to the latest The Advent track. I don’t have the permission to post it here but do check out the video! It has been released on the “Kombination Research” label and the EP also features two tracks of Minimal Rome. This is good old techno my friends! Also big up to Pedro Delgardo of Yin Yang Records for playing this track during his radioshow and therefore keeping me up to date! Buy the EP here!
I hope everyone had a nice weekend. Mine was pretty relax. Anyway we have received two brand new tracks from Adrian Recordings. Desolate is a first taste of the Scandinavian minimal trance duo Boeoes Kaelstigen’s album debut “Tanum Teleport” which will be out November the 24th. Secondly we have a Mowgli remix of the second taster of “Tanum Teleport” called Lou released by Discobelle Records.Seems like Adrian and Discobelle have teamed up for this project. I can’t wait to hear the complete album in a couple days. What about you?
We received an e-mail from Daniel Gorton a.k.a. Hog, an English producer who is currently living in Berlin to concentrate on music production (and to grow a moustache). He recently started up his own label called Crazy Old Goose Records and this is how he describes the label: “[It] is about bringing fun to the dance floor and exploring exciting ways to develop a cheeky take on the house and techno scene.” Now COG has released his first EP called “Not quite an albatross”. From the title you immediately feel how COG looks at the world, not all too seriously, with a big fat wink! That’s exactly what I like about this label because there are too many labels these days that think they can just start something up and get big. Well, dream on, it’s better to start something out of love for the music and apply a “wait and see” approach.
“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears.”(Henry David Thoreau)
Ok, so COG001 then. The EP features 3 tracks, besides the original also an exclusive remix by Parisian producer Frankie (Frankie Records). The title track is a blend of a superb bass line, lot’s of bleeps and a shaking percussion. The third track, called Flan, has a great vibe and will most certainly make your head go up and down!

Buy the EP on Beatport, Juno, iTunes etc.
I hope COG keeps doing what it’s doing right now because the potential, without any doubt, is there…
Time to post the first tracks on the redesigned phase02. The honor goes to Nicolas Eller. He’s definitely one of the most thankful and loyal artists we’ve ever known. Nicolas has released a couple new free tracks the last couple weeks. Enjoy these great minimal deep tunes from our German friend Nicolas. He’s a very nice guys, give him some love!
