I am very happy to be a part of this cool collection.
Dunk Murphy is the brains behind this interesting idea- a group of named producers each make a track at 101BPM and his Countersunk label release them all with the artist name as 101 Beats Per Minute.
You get an interesting, diverse collection of music AND a fun game trying to figure out who wrote which track!
The list of the 23 contributors for this second round of the project are up on the Bandcamp page: https://countersunk.bandcamp.com/album/101-beats-per-minute-ii where you can also ‘name your price’ for the collection. A new track is released each Thursday, so you can catch the stream of the newest track there too.
It was a very different way for me to approach writing a track- if you know my music, BPM is not something I really attach to! I found the whole process of making it really fun and am so happy with the outcome. Thanks to Dunk for inviting me to be a part of it!

Releases on Eotrax early 2018
Pre-order on 12″ vinyl: HERE
Eomac expands the roster of his recently inaugurated Eotrax imprint with the introduction of
two forerunners in Berlin’s techno scene: Kaltès and Nene H. Both have built respected
reputations as exciting artists to watch, as Kaltès organizes Tresor Berlin’s
female:pressure-affiliated party series and Nene H. turned heads with her Fountain Of Fire
performance at Berlin Atonal Festival. Their collaborative record, the Protest EP, presents a
call to arms and an empowered take on gnarly techno with a stormy industrial underbelly.
For Kaltès and Nene H., the music channels a current zeitgeist. A wail—a rallying
cry—appears on each track and provides the record’s central motif. In that sense the theme
acts as a statement to which each featured artist contributed, including the two remixers:
Orphx’s Christina Sealey and the Irish Eotrax alum LAIR. It’s a howl of anguish, but not from
heartache or misery; it’s a defiant, determined and empowered battle cry. On “Persist”,
staunch kicks summon the vocal from a swamp of metallic textures, while on “Resist” it’s
placed at the center of a thundering black hole, drawing the listener in deeper. In the hands
of Christina Sealey, it becomes a smoldering element in a rolling EBM cruiser, whereas LAIR
spreads it over a backdrop of shifting ambient textures and dark celestial grumbles.

My video for Invoke has been premiered by The Brvtalist- http://www.thebrvtalist.com/lairinvoke/
A voice calls out across unseen borders
Movement fills the yawning stillness
The process begins
From the Void
An elemental force surges
Consuming all in its wake
A stirring within
There can be no return
The Host awakens
