DEEPTRAX RECORDS

For quite a while we supported Bas van Vuurde a.k.a. Colophon, the Harlem based producer was a regular in our store and after some proper vinyl digging we told him that he could always send over some demos. Couple of weeks later we got an email and we enjoyed it so much that we had to release it. We asked VC-118A, who also put out music on labels such as Radio Matrix, Lunar Disco and Tabernacle Records, for a remix.

Colophon has it’s own label called Lowercase Life, beautiful hand printed sleeves with stunning music and remixes by Florian Kupfer and Orson Wells, produces nighttime tracks for the floor with a deep but spacious melancholic feel. The Heritage EP is a hommage to analog machine soul techno, as he calls it himself. Deeptrax is presenting future sounds in fresh modern cuts with a stunning electro-ish remix by VC-118A.

After the sublime triple 12” re-issue of the ‘Sonar Bases 4-10’ album on Deeptrax Records, it’s now time for the second installment in the Sonar Base Transmissions Series: the album ‘Dark Matter’. All 6 tracks were produced by Frank De Groodt around 2004/2005 and were only released in the inner circle, never released on vinyl. This mini LP still sounds as fresh as it was produced 13 years ago, experimental on the drums and synths.

When listening to ‘Sonic Discharge’ and ‘Velvet Sky of Sonar 6’, the link with Drexciya is easily made. Sonar Base takes you further into outer space territory with the dark sounds of ‘Polygone Suffering’ and the title track ‘Dark Matter’, there is the clear IDM feel of tracks like ‘Meet You at Tower 3 on Sonar 7'.

“Dark matter is a hypothetical type of matter distinct from baryonic matter (ordinary matter such as protons and neutrons), neutrinos and dark energy. Dark matter has never been directly observed; however, its existence would explain a number of otherwise puzzling astronomical observations”

The mini LP is limited to 400 black versions and 100 on limited edition purple marbled vinyl, pressed by Deepgrooves and fully remastered by Thee J Johanz. You know the drill!

Yeahhh, thrilled to release the new snippets of the new Deeptrax release by G.W. hailing from London.
This is the new fifth Deeptrax EP from the mysterious Ruffien. Immensely diverse sounds from the caverns of South-East London. Hypered house, dungeonesque taped techno, dirty filthy electro and lo-fi dubby IDM, all combined with that delicate grimy touch.
Traveling the thin lines between Detroit, Grime and House. This EP sounds as it's gracefully upgrading the dusty grooves of Aphex Twin, Burial, Drexciya and Boards of Canada in one very unique piece of wax. Looking for new horizons in deeper techno territory…

Tserg is a 25 year old producer from Singapore. Written over a period of 4 months, "Forgotten Times" is an emotive and scintillating EP. Half modern classic, half tribute to Detroit's Transmat Recordings. Opening with the beatless introduction of "Synthesis", recalling some of Derrick May's timeless refrains, and then moving into the EPs main feature - a trilogy of "Forgotten...." tracks: all resplendent with heart-wrenching leads, voluptuous pads and twinkly, star-aligned melodies. It's hard not to reference the Motor City demigod, but at the same time this ain't no uninspired re-hash. The perc sounds are new and fresh, the arrangements somewhat smoother and more delicate than his Detroit contemporary and there's an ethereal quality to all the sounds which gel everything together in Tserg's own unique way. Absolutely gorgeous and stunning, all the way through, anyone into the melodic side of techno and house music needs to get on board.

Limited to 150 copies pressed at Deepgrooves' own vinyl pressing plant, this will surely end up as a collectable classic for the global techno heads. Don't sleep!


Twenty years after the "Sonar Base 4 - 10" release on the legendary Dutch record label U-Trax, Deeptrax Records officially license a high quality remaster of this stunning Dutch electro classic. Frank de Groodt asserts a unique blend of aquasonic electro, intergalactic boogie and rich deep techno. Frank started out on U-Trax records in 1994, and released as The Operator and Optic Crux on Djax-Up-Beats before his more recent releases as Fastgraph on Klakson. Besides that he’s also part of Random XS and Ultradyne.

This bass oriented, mind bending album is considered one of The Netherlands best kept secrets and has been a fave amongst connoisseurs, selectors and DJs around the globe for many years. A real post apocalyptic gem from Utrecht that is as fresh and sharp as it was originally released 20 years ago. The tracks are full bodied, muscular pieces of electro and techno with hidden melodies and savage beats upon clever bass lines.

All tracks are analogue remastered by Ballyhoo Studios and pressed by the brand new vinyl pressing plant Deepgrooves for optimal listening pleasure.

This is just the first one of a series by Sonar Base released on Deeptrax Records. Buy your own personal outer-space Sonar Base package, filling that black hole in your macrocosm collection. You don’t want to miss this a second time!
