Radio Hell

This Is Radio Hell

DJ Hell and Radio Slave are Radio Hell. Celebrating the label’s landmark 200th release, the two legendary producers’ team up for a massive two-tracker with artwork from Alan Oldham, aka DJ T-1000.

Two blistering slices of stadium friendly, soaring techno; as grandiose and mammoth in construction as anything these two titans of techno have produced previous.

"Radio Hell" is a smoke-filled, claustrophobic bunker track; reminiscent of the iconic Tresor sound which both producers are more than familiar with. Incessant, nagging tones occupy an electrified space of hallucinatory vox echoes and 2CB-styled vibrations.

"Lost Souls", it's equally masterful companion, sees gurgling Reese bass, rising chords and infectious vox chops combine to an unbelievably intense drag race; burning through the cosmos on nitros and dark energy. More Detroitian than the A-side, there's hints of E-Dancer about this late night star missile.



STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Seriously strong colab between DJ Hell and Radioslave. Pure DC-10 / Watergate vibes on this stadium slayer. Both sides'll devastate even the hardiest gurn-bots.

Robert Hood

Mirror Man

    Detroit pioneer Robert Hood joins Radio Slave’s Rekids label with a new album entitled ‘Mirror Man’ this November.

    A founding member of Underground Resistance alongside Mad Mike Banks and Jeff Mills, Robert Hood is one of techno’s originators and his decorated career spans three decades. The American artist and his M-Plant label laid down the blueprint for minimal techno and 1994’s ‘Minimal Nation’ on Axis was a definitive album that further cemented Hood’s reputation as one of the greats to emerge from the Motor City.

    Since then, Hood has gone on to release on many of electronic music’s best labels like Tresor, Peacefrog, Music Man Records, Dekmantel and more. After a busy few years making music and touring as Floorplan alongside his daughter Lyric, Hood now joins Rekids with an album showcasing his innate knack for crafting paired back but intricate rhythms that deliver punch and soul.



    Opening with the cinematic ‘Through A Looking Glass Darkly’, the album quickly flows into precise, powerful four four. There’s mesmerising cuts such as ‘Fear Not’ with its throbbing bass and spectral vocals, the twisted and off-key ‘Run Bobby, Run’, not to mention muscular tracks designed to light up dancefloors like the machine driven ‘A System of Mirrors’ or the mesmerising ‘Face In The Water’. Hood also breaks things up with downtempo and mind-bending interludes, including the tranquil yet spooky ‘Black Mirror’ and the beatless and murky ‘Freeze’. Each of these are aural feasts that demonstrate his vast musical pallet.

    From start to finish ‘Mirror Man’ is an education in finesse from one of techno’s most heroic artists, landing on one of electronic music’s most important labels.
