The recent relaunch of Flux Recordings, saw label boss Chris Finke's solo debut Petrolbomb EP ripping up dancefloors worldwide. Following that up is the 2nd instalment of the Chris Finke Presents series, which showcases new material from established producers and up and coming talent. Agaric (Patrik Skoog) is no stranger to Flux. His 2005 At The Gates EP was well received across the board and this track from him is possibly the most minimal track we have released to date on the label. Blending the best bits of techno, minimal and electronica, He was Somewhere Else track is simply stunning, deep bass and clever edits have already made this a future classic. Next up (vinyl only) is a short track locked groove from Chris Finke which features a conversation between Chris and the Chairman of the Board Gareth Cruse. Despite its questionable origins, this is a useful DJ tool with a catchy hook that works a treat! New talent M0dular Matt makes his vinyl debut with a bleepy early 90s style techno track. Crunchy angular beats and classy synth programming meet headon with the heaviest bassline of the year. A big room tune, this has been tried and tested for the last 6 months off CDR. Last but not least comes from Londons new blood Max Cooper, whom Chris first met Max while DJing at Nottinghams Firefly raves. Max has been turning heads of late with his refreshing take modern dance floor techno, and this tough minimal workout is picking up a lot of attention from across the board.
