Raw Main @rawmain
Welcoming back Serbian producer Tebra for yet another EP of his progressive ethnic music. A year has passed since we released Krug EP and it was just the right time for some new music from one of our favorite producers. This new record features two original tracks: Helm and Mesečina.
Helm opens up with a clean sounding string arpeggio revealing itself slowly throughout the introduction. Oud melodies take over for a few bars, setting an eastern scenery and eventually leading to a minimal yet heavy drop. The piece evolves with taste as we go through enriched versions of these three sections. The atmospheric textures and vocals of the break complete this sumptuous journey through eastern electronic beats.
Mesečina emphasizes on oriental string melodies thoroughly supported by a bouncing low-end. Interesting ethnic percussions grooves and female vocals take over during the calmer parts of the piece, conveying a longing for new springs in remote places.
This time, we are gifted with remixes from two experienced producers whose work we admire. Raw Main has crafted a groovy alternative to ‘Helm’ sublimed with mind blowing synth arpeggios.
Timboletti has once again succeeded at delivering an insanely well produced remix. Beats merge with synths in a beautiful and precise way. There is a lot to discover in this rich soundscape, making sure Timboletti’s version will suit both home listeners and dancefloors enthusiasts.
Underground Audio have announced the imprints latest release, Javi Bora’s ‘Weapons’ EP.
‘Weapons’ sees a cascading low end masterfully evolve into a modulated bass pattern over the course of the record, the mounting tension provided by rolling snares and disguised vocal cuts. Catalan producer Piem provides a skilfully contrasted remix with undulating layers easing in and out of the mix. ‘Whoop Whoop’ weaves together crisply saturated drums with warped vocals, whilst ‘You Know’ rounds off the EP with classic tech-chords enriched by organic percussion elements.
A Remix EP on Crossfrontier Audio family: Danito & Athina – right in time for Spring.
The duo who’ve made headway with their Fire, Hydra and Losing Time EPs on CFA in the last year alone, have continued their output in the studio and have produced even more heat on lauded labels, which certainly give us a rich choice of tracks to be remixed – so we found you a few artists that match their energy and give off their own vibes, including a few debuts, and don’t worry, they still bring the ruckus…
Opening up the 4 track EP is Miyagi’s fantastic take on Tetris, a choice selection over the summer for many DJ’s, the SoSo, Einmusika & Katermukke stalwart goes in and gives us a rumbling banger for a debut on Crossfrontier Audio.
Having made a stellar entrance with us last year, Stereo Underground gives us his signature outer space feel with his climatic touch up of City Lights, colliding the harmony of the vocals over the pounding rhythm.

After the great success of Johannes Klingebiel’s debut solo EP we had absolutely no doubt that an extra package including top notch remixes by good friends of our label would be mandatory:
Berlin based Rhytch delivers the smoothest mix of the bunch, with the occasional glitch to spice it up and readjust your idea of a tight groove.
As you may have guessed Conga Fever’s Seksi Disco Remix brings you exactly everything you desire to have a hipshaking dance under the mirror ball and maybe a bit more.
Our friend and jack of all trades David Hasert provides an interpretation of Latewood you can definitely name Techno. However we would call it – it’s absolutely fire in the hole!
Last but not least Watergate resident Ruede Hagelstein strips the track down to its core parts and proves that the concept of “less is more” is not just a theoretical, but a very practical and danceable one.
