LUMIERE NOIRE : a stroboscopic collection assembled by Chloe on Kill the DJ.
We are happy to bring you the 3rd opus of the Lumière Noire collection: a one-way ticket Los Angeles - Mexico – Paris offered by our beloved mariachis MODERNA y THEUS MAGO. Immersive slow-tracks, techno tension at its worst & sharp acid bass lines. Added to this a remix from our favorite electronic post-punk band Die Wilde Jagd and you just have to ring my bell, tenemos 4 bomb alertas.
Moderna & Theus Mago met in Mexico one day during "Ley Seca” [when the Mexican government shut all bars and clubs the entire weekend for voting]. That night, as djs in the city were gig-less, they organized an impromptu “illegal” house party outside the city, with most of the local heroes (Mijo, Sanfuentes, Bufi, Andre VII, Moderna, Max Schmitt, Watty and more). This EP is the result of the « Ley Seca ». This is probably what makes it so special. 3 tracks of pure modern techno to fight for your right to party?
A1-DOG IS CALLING YOU :
Slow techno is always stronger.
Dog is calling you expands slowly into a mixture of acid & techno sounds & pure sex drum machine. This could remind some of Mathew Dear's techno-tracks style. Who is the dog ?
A2- DOG IS CALLING YOU (Die Wilde Jagd remix) :
Die Wilde Jagd is the name of a group of hunters in the 19th century german folk tale. It is also THE electronic post-punk band that we cherish the most at the moment. Check out their first album on Bureau B. Die Wilde Jagd has revisited Moderna y Theus Mago to perfection bringing something more organic to this technoïd track. They just killed it.
B1-PAPA EN ROY :
This track has something so effective & functional that I like it. A classic techno track with an obsessive & repetitive bass line, uplifted by Moderna's vocal. So good it hurts.
B2 – ASESINO PSICOTICO :
Violence can be really sexy sometimes. Techno energy + housey groove = asesino + psicotico.
>>> For those who wants to know more about Theus and Moderna here are few elements of their bio :
THEUS MAGO :
Behind Theus Mago hides the Mexican producer Mateo Gonzalez, involved in several dance music projects such as Bufi (Kitsuné / Discotexas), Sonido Fantasma (Turbo recordings) and he is also the co-manager of the new label Duro. If everybody is saying at the moment that the future of electronic music comes from Mexico, Theus is probably one of the shining lights of this young and hyper creative scene.
DJ & producer Moderna started in music as a producer in a noise band [The Static Cult]. She worked for the prestigious label Ghostly International for a long time. There, she began to evolve by producing and promoting events all over the world, collaborating with artists such as Tycho, Telefon Tel Aviv and Matthew Dear (just to name a few). As her passion developed, she took the chance to cultivate her own style and music.
