Record label Disco Halal shares new techno songs

Berlin-based record label Disco Halal have launched the all-new ‘Disco Halal: 2x2’ series, kicking off with music from Kino Todo and Marko East.

A monthly release series featuring two tracks by two different artists, with each artist then remixing the other, the first issue of 'Disco Halal: 2x2' kicks off with the assertive kick drums of ‘Yasmin’ by Kino Todo, a progressive house cut fill underpinned by complex percussion. Marko East then steps up with a cosmic-tinged remix of the same track, ahead of his own track ‘5 DB Higher Than U’, an acid techno bomb with a squelching 303 bassline. Kino Todo then rounds things off with his remix of the track, a more refined take on the original that loses none of its intensity.

"Different tracks and artists can be blended to create more than the sum of their parts,” Moscoman explains. “I wanted to extend this concept to Disco Halal's releases, allow emerging talent to mix with bigger names....each artist able to provide either their own canvas or paint on someone else's. Two By Two."

Tel Aviv DJ and produce Kino Todo is a young artist influenced by global sounds, exploring different rhythms to create something fresh and exciting. His first release ‘Gidafi Na’ has already made a big impact. Marko East has built a reputation around his unique sound signature. His productions are a mix of modern beats and a variety of cross-genre influences, representing his deep passion for music of all kinds.

House producer Race Banyon releases song ‘Pressure Off’

New Zealand electronic producer Race Banyon (aka Eddie Johnston) teases more new music with ‘Pressure Off’, the second offering from his upcoming new EP, set for release on 7th July.

The new cut follows on the recently released deep house R&B-tinged single ‘We Need It’. While Last year’s single ‘Move With Us’ – taken from EP 1, which saw support from the likes of Clash Magazine and DMC World, with Clash comparing its “experimental take on melody and structure” to the work of Jon Hopkins and James Holden.

Putting a fresh spin on straightforward tech-house club construction, Race Banyon created ‘Pressure Off’ around an Ableton’s arpeggiator loop, with the track’s rhythmic pulse moving through ambient tech-house to what Race Banyon describes as a “very interesting beat, almost like a New Orleans’ Bounce beat gravitating towards Jungle’s territory but without ever quite getting there. It’s like the hint of something that you can’t quite taste.”

Under his Race Banyon alias, Johnston has already garnered the attention of every music platform that counts; his collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign and DJ Dahi for Red Bull Sound Select has seen support from the likes of Complex, Dummy, The Fader, Hypebeast and Stereogum, with Red Bull calling him “New Zealand’s next big thing”. While his “tastefully minimalist production,” as defined by Dummy has led to him to sharing stages with the likes of Jamie XX, Rustie and Kaytranada, to name a few.

Cultivating a cult following online for the atmospheric pop songs he creates as Lontalius, which opened the doors to a collaboration with Ryan Hemsworth and prompt AnOther Magazine to list him their ‘New Zealand’s New Musical Revolution’ feature - Johnston was only 14 when started making music as Race Banyon - a project which he describes as “production focused and dance oriented”.

With ‘Pressure Off’ Race Banyon produced four minutes of ample bliss, creating a multidimensional dance cut for daydreamers.
