As 2016 rolls through, so does Fossil Archive with its 4th release since its highly acclaimed beginnings in February 2015.  With Fossil Archive’s previous release featuring as “Tune of The Month” on Mixmag’s November 2015 Techno Page, this next two-part ensemble sees two very different tracks leave you with little doubt that Fossil Archive remains inspired to be at the forefront of all things techno.

Starting off on the A side, Voiski brings a highly energised, synth-led onslaught on the senses.  Completely improvised and recorded during a live show in Paris, ‘Calyptraphorus’ is driven by a stern groove.  This hi-hat wielding, key driven stream of consciousness brings an ‘80s accent of vigour to any dance floor.  Irresistible and loud, this power track of electronic techno is unhinged and original.

Over on to the B side, Roberto completely changes the tonality to a more intense effect on ‘Velatus’, depicting the multitudinous of feelings moving mind, body and soul.  A balance of cryptic melody shadowed by rolling percussion and sandscape soundscapes, this minimalist derived dub-fresh track subtly completes the EP.

All in all, two tracks that will intrigue suitably different crowds and leave everybody smiling.  A rewarding release of full range techno; here’s to another great year of Fossil Archive.

“You're never paddling in the shallows with Voiski… the Frenchman always drags you towards the pool's murky depths, where a surprise is often lying in wait.” [Resident Advisor]

“We’re big fans of Roberto here at Mixmag… He’s an artist who maintains control over his profile, and has benefitted greatly from this thoughtful approach.” [Mixmag]

“One of the most promising new labels to emerge this year” [DJ Mag]
