The mindmaster behind UAT Records enters the family of crows with his guest performance - a thematic masterpiece.
"Nature´s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf´s a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay. " Robert Frost, 1874 - 1963

Dutch producer Markie aka Emel from Den Bosch makes his 2nd appearance on Violent Cases.
While VC002 was more introspective, he now delivers 2 Tekno dancefloor burners in the 165-170 bpm range - finding the right balance between hypnotic and driving with a helping 90´s Hardtrance references thrown in a good measure.

Another first by Violent Cases! The first full 12" by Austrian producer Van Der Wiese.
VC 006 features 3 tracks of deep acidic Techno in the 140-150 bpm range, bridging the gap between club and forest. With a clean and crisp production all the tracks cruise along like a monolithic vessel.
A - "Interstellar Overdrive" (140 bpm; 7:26 min) A bath of shattering subbass, stomping along with only very faint hi-hats, accentuated by an almost montonous acid line. Note: that's not half bad in our book.
B1 - "Leaving Earth" (145 bpm; 7:43 min) Haunting and hypnotic; heading into deep space, the acid lines carry the journey but remain unobstrusive, woven into the fabric, organic. VdW spins a story here.
B2 - "System Error" (150 bpm; 8:19 min) A long winding spriral going down the rabbit hole. Minimalist yet effective to the max.
Fresh producer Odisoa from Belgium delivers his first full 12" on Violent Cases and his musical heritage is undeniable, the old Belgian rave tradition breathes out of his tracks. This is a 4 track Hard Techno monster guaranteed to pop the rivets at your next warehouse rave.
A1 - "Nightvisions" (165 bpm) opens up and sets the somber tone, it's synths lure you into the realm of creatures living after midnight.
A2 -The "Dreamcatcher" (170 bpm) means business. The pace picks up and the kick drum hammers out an annihalating rhythm underpinned with a frenzied acid line, peeking into Hardcore territory.
B1 -"Behind The Secret" (172 bpm) takes your mind on an eerie journey while the feet shuffle to a solid beat.
B2 - "Cydonia" (165 bpm) finishes the job and destroys everything left standing by now. This is music for huge space arenas born in the underground.
Tommers delivers 3 introspective tools for the late night crowd. Mental medication spiked with a dash of acid. Don't get lost in yourself!
A - Ab Norman - long and deeply atmospheric for the Intronaut trying to come to terms with a distorted reality.
B1 - I Got 5 On It - remix of a live extract pimped up with some acid lines.
B2 - Golden Shower - an uplifting dancefloor energizer, solid kicks and swirling atmosphere transport you back to the surface.
This release features fresh Austrian producer Enko from Vienna with his first full record and a conceptual one at that - VC 003 is inspired by the effects of a volcano eruption. Atmospheric underground Tekno in the 160 bpm sphere.
A - "Flaming" is a long lowdown cruising bass frequency submarine, most efficient on a rig below the 40 Hz threshold. Not so much the eruption rather
the steady unstoppable flow of lava.
Info Side :
B1 - "Awakening" - Acid bubbles in the magma build the pressure.
B2 - "Shrouded In Ash" is like a drone flight through scorched valleys where live has ceased to exist and layers of ash look like snow.
