Florida based Irish DJ and producer Ed Whitty returns to SRUR with the fantastic Knowhere which comes backed up with two top notch remixes. Ed’s last outing was with Kukulkan on our Muzika Volume 5 pack which grabbed a lot of attention on the circuit. Great to see him back, you’re gonna love this one.
The Original Mix delivers a solid tech joint throughout as chunky kicks are met with a cool shuffling rhythm section. A deep rolling bass shores up the low end adding a bit of extra tech weight to the sound. Over the top we have some very cool mesmerizing metallic synths that just hang in the air effortlessly. A real nice slice of tech for the floors here, not to be missed.
Miami, USA based DJ and producing duo Thinking Of Us aka Ivan Avila and Robert Cournoyer debut on SRUR with this fine tech fuelled remix. On the DJ front these guys certainly know how to work a crowd, they have opened for many top jocks and set the tone for many great club nights. In the studio Ivan and Robert bring their musical experiences together and create some superb tracks with a leaning towards deep and funky beats. Great to see these guys on board and hopefully we’ll see more from them in the future. The remix intros with a nice punchy kick with a subtle bassy tone trailing off at the end. Cool rhythmic percussions start to form up and set the track on its tech fuelled adventure. The bassline meanders through the sound beautifully and gives the track a slight bounce that will keep the floors happy for sure. Superb synths and FX fill out the background in a variety of shapes and colours giving this track a lot of texture that works so well in the sound. Top notch stuff.
DJ and producer Torin Lawson marks his first SRUR appearance with this quality remix. Owner of Breakfast Club Recordings, Still Play Records and Get Weird Entertainment, Torin keeps himself busy running his labels on top of DJing and working in the studio. To date he has seen a raft of releases on various labels including his own and he has worked alongside Ed Whitty, Michael Rosa, Roberto Apodaca and Chris Di Solar. Another great addition to the SRUR roster, welcome aboard. Here, the remix throws up a real smooth deep house groove complete with cool chords, punchy kicks and a crispy sharp hat sequence that rattles out a steady rhythmic flow. The chords dance through the groove in a playful manner and are soon joined by a brilliant bassline that really gets the track moving. Those hats cut through the lower sounds with ease creating a cool contrast. On the break we get treated to some deep and dubby beats as well as a short but impactful vocal. Definitely one for those late night sets here, a must have.

SRUR presents its fifth instalment in the ‘Muzika’ series. Four new, top quality deep techno cuts brought to you by five top class artists including Ben Mert & Harun Karabulut, Danny Murphy, ED Whitty and Moll.
Ben Mert debuts on SRUR while Harun is becoming quite the regular on these shores. The guys deliver with their ‘Drunken Violine’ which fades in to reveal a monster kick and bass combo with a sinister sounding FX. A beautifully strange violin comes through and creates a wonderfully textured sound with great percussive elements over the top. Top notch stuff from the boys!
Danny Murphy debuts on SRUR with his sublime track ‘Quiroga’. Nice and smooth percussive intro leading to a solid well formed kick. Soon an offset bass opens the track up and adds an energetic feel. Very bouncy vibe here as steady, flowing rhythms are formed and some cool sounds bursting through. An infectious groove for the big floors and not to be missed.
Ed Whitty returns to SRUR after his recent stint with Gabriel Ben. Here he delivers ‘Kukulkan’ which is a well crafted slice of techno. Chunky kicks are accompanied by a shuffling styled hat arrangement creating a cool rhythm. The deep sub bass packs a huge punch as it relentlessly powers through the groove. Cool buzzing effect on the synths create a bit of tension with a superb vocal sample adding weight. Tight track for the late night masses.
Moll debuts on SRUR with his track ‘In Your Head’. Recently Moll has seen a release on Bonzai Basiks with the prospect of much more to come. Here he pushes the techno out of every sound he’s used. Superbly crafted drum arrangements give off a steady vibe as a mega deep bass pulsates through the speakers. Some very cool percussive and crowd effects fill the spectrum as this track gets into the heart of techno. Excellent stuff!

Gabriel and Ed join forces for a round of top quality techno on SRUR with “Epoch”. US based Gabriel is returning to these shores after a very well received remix on Ozan Kanik’s “Enough” while Irish native but now residing in Florida, Ed, is making his SRUR debut. Both Ed and Gabriel have seen a multitude of releases across many labels focusing mainly on techno and house and they have both worked with many top artists over the years.
The original mix of “Epoch” is a testament to the sound coming from this quality label at the moment, high octane in your face techno delights for the more energetic house parties. Bouncy rhythms with smooth basslines and some brilliant classic type techno-house synths, big sound here for any jock to get the floors moving.
Brazilian DJ Anderson Noise enters the arena with a superbly crafted minimalistic techno remix. Anderson is a major player on the scene having DJed in over 30 countries, released more than 50 tracks, 2 DVD’s, many compilations and runs his own label Noise Music. Here he strips the sound right back to its raw form and applies it in style to his own taste, almost primitive beats that pack a huge punch come flying out and that bassline will move any ass to the floor. Top quality FX and percussions add weight to the sheer rawness of this sound, one for the pure hearts here, top stuff!
Up next is Brazilian trio Re Dupre, Rod B. & Angelo Fracalanza with their collective top notch remix. All three make their SRUR debut and all three can be considered veterans in their field due to the mega amount of output from their labels. Re Dupre is the founder of PopArt , Miami Underground Records and Sessions Records all of which feature heavily on the Miami circuit. Rod B. is a graduate of SAE Miami in Audio Technology (Recording Arts) and is a main feature at some big events across southern US and afar. Angelo is a graduate of Music Production and he likes to focus on melodic tech house with lots of percussion. All three guys have appeared on many of the labels mentioned and their collective sound sits well on this label. The remix itself is a real upbeat slice of tech with lots going on, but the big focus is on the bassline, one of those bassline that just moves you! Tight arrangements and a solid groove all round, awesome stuff!
