Following two previous appearances on the “Contemporary Dance” and “Quiet Eye” compilations the elusive LYUBOCHA makes their first full EP release through BLACK OPAL.
“Noblask” opens proceedings and instantly energises with a bass heavy acid jam, sitting on a simple motif and crunching away into the dance.“Berzerk” pushes with a slow burning, deep and dubby tech sliced open by red hot hats. “Nenavist” proffers a floral counterpoint to the earlier acid, bejewelled back drops host a perfectly wonked 303 line popping off to the horizon. Closing track “Nikogda” rolls re-pitched kalimba/xylo styles into a ball and jacks it against the wall, hard.
Simplicity is a powerful tool when used correctly. Lyubocha nails a warm, lo-fi techno minimalism on this debut release.

“We wanted to salute to our peers, mentors and people by closing one chapter and move on to the next one. We see this compilation as more random sampling than cross section about Finnish electronic music at the moment. I guess you can imagine, that it´s like a neighbourhood within the city, where the music reflects our world and peoples lives in it.” - TDJ

Devon Hansen returns to BLACK OPAL debuting his PERSUASION handle with four deep techno cuts that comprise the atmospheric Quatermass EP. The magic of these immaculately conceived, deceptively minimal tracks reveals byzantine detail that’s best consumed/deployed during the small hours for maximum impact on minds and bodies.

The new release by POLY SONE on FRIENDSHIP & DECADENCE is an introspective trip with a bouncy, dubby flair that sets the scene with gritty synths and spacey arpeggios reminiscent of sci-fi soundtracks from the 80’s and continues by avoiding the ordinary with some light Trance and a tinge of Acid. Get ready for this out-of-body experience and exit flesh!
