This 2 track ep is a reissue and remix of the original track by Alex W. The original track was first released 4 years ago on a compilation album, but has since been picked up by Takasi Nakajima to make a fantastic remix. Hailing from Russia, Alex’s skills include painting, photography and bass guitar before moving into Electro under the name of Protector Hood. Takasi is well known as one half of the Different World collaboration,the other being Claude Young.
Essential Moment (original mix) begins with a huge four to the floor beat and a gorgeously deep synth. Then extra layers are added by way of more keyboards, beats and hi-hats galore. Then the depth subsides as the melody is brought to the fore. The track then builds again with layers dextrously added beneath the melody and just keeps building until the melody is once again brought back to the pinnacle. I am amazed that this ended up on a compilation, but I’m equally glad it is now being given the recognition it so rightfully deserves.
Essential Moment (Takasi Nakajima remix) on the flip side is a touch more downtempo, lower on the octave and a lot deper than the original. The rhythms are a little more complex and the track builds more gradually than the original. When the melodic piano is introduced it is like a breath of fresh air. Then in come some lovely underlying harmonies on keyboard before the track really takes off with Takasi’s wonderful flare for creating complicated melodies and harmonies, but manages to make them intertwine seamlessly formulating a kind of musical symbiosis. The beats towards the end are just fantastically hypnotic too. This is a real journey in Techno.
What can I say, except I am in absolute awe of this EP. Get your hands on a copy! This release is forthcoming and links to preview/purchase will be added as and when we receive them.

Science Label turned three years old and continues to produce exquisite works of deep techno; to celebrate their anniversary is a real honor to welcome to the family another emergent artist. This time they present our own Andreas Zead from Athens, Greece. After a long career behind the turntables Andreas Zead acquired the knowledge and experience to be the mind responsible of 'Viasound Radio' - very respected and supported around the world because of its quality underground music and variety of content.
For his debut as a producer, Andreas Zead presents his track named "Echoes of Yesterday". This cut is blunt, deep and with exquisite melodies and drums. it's a Mediterranean journey into the depths of Detroit sound that fits perfectly inside Science Label's philosophy.
In the second original track from this release, Andreas Zead presents "Opposing Norm", another piece with exquisite Detroit taste and a flowing percussion work that demonstrates his high quality and versatility. The abyssal percussion, along with synth lashes and mythical cuts (bringing Rolando back to memory) close to the most corrosive acid house, showing his version of the Greek dancefloor.
"Echoes of Yesterday" is remixed by two known producers in Science Label; Erell Ranson adds metallic percussion, cool breezes and melodic rhythms to the original osprey, and Dave G affects the deep, organic and track envelope, presenting a hypnotic remix, the kind that sound equally good at four in the morning to four in the afternoon.
"Science Label" meets again with French producer 'Erell Ranson' to remix 'Echoes of Yesterday'. He is one of their fetish artists from the label catalog and once again he comes up with this excellent rework. Born in 1977 and raised in the north of France, Erell Ranson was influenced by the synthetic wave of the Seventies (Kraftwerk, Vangelis...) that he discovered thanks to his uncle.
In 1989 - 1990, he discovered techno music on Maxximum Radio where Laurent Garnier hosted a show, called "RaveMaxx". Since that time, music was an essential part of his life. After many weekends visiting parties, he started deejaying at small local parties and began to buy 12es. Then, the urge to create his own tracks started to raise naturally.
In 1997, he bought various machines, and started programming sounds and music. Very influenced by the sound of Detroit (UR, Robert Hood, Jeff Mills, Carl Craig,...) and the melancholic sound of this scene, he focused his productions on this style. Following his "ancestors", he produces deep and melancholic tracks. In 2006, he founds the Chroma Electronic Collective with his friends Pedro Cali (FCom, Melodika) and Tyler Smith (Audiocrash). Resident from the Interstate94 Radio Show on Livesets.com
In 2008 he founded his own label "MySelf Recordings".
For a second consecutive release 'Science Label" is pleased to have David Gaugain aka Dave-G. The producer based in Bordeaux gives to his version of "Echoes of Yesterday" a fresh groove without miss the deep side of the original melody.
Born in 1977, David discovered electronic music at a young age, thanks to his father who is listening to bands such as Tangerine Dream or Klaus Schulze.
1990, he met House music and techno, which leads to a knowledge of a new world and naturally it will turn to djing in 1996.
2009, he decided to take a step, putting himself in the composition, two years later, he released his first EP « Michigan Sensation » on the label Lo-Deep Recordings.
Therefore, he made a lot of tracks and remixes on differents label such as Logos, Aztlan, Dublin Xpress, Red Robot, Difu, Pbr, Pulsar or Biotech.
At the same time, he works with his brother OuD!n13, and produced tracks under the name of G-Prod.
