If I had to pick my favourite label of the moment it would have to be Maceo Plex’s ELLUM imprint. It has been delivering the proverbial musical goods for quite some time now with solid releases from Agoria, Gardens of God and now, with their debut release, AGENTS OF TIME.
The Italian trio have been making music since 2013 with numerous track & EP releases (including a very tasty remix of Stepha Bodzin’s ‘Zulu’) and a debut album on Stem Recordings. Their sound has travelled to over 20 countries through a live tour and they have gained the support of techno heavy weights such as Dixon, Agoria, Tiga and of course Maceo Plex. It’s fair to say that they are on fire.
Their two track ‘Magma’ EP adds to the ever growing catalogue of innovative and powerful releases on Ellum; ‘Magma’ brings dark tones, stabs of wet bass and punchy percussive elements; ‘Obsidian’ has a clever and mesmerising melodic motif at its heart along with crisp hi hats and scattered claps that drive you through with a resonant bass line.
Another stellar release for both Ellum and Agents of Time – It’s one that I’ve been hammering and one that I’m sure will be heard on many dance floors across the globe.
You can catch Agents of Time along with the rest of the Ellum crew (including Maceo Plex, Agoria and Gardens of God) at Fabric on 24/3 – more info & tickets here.
