May is the gateway to the summer, a month of contrasts, from the summer heat to the cold spring. For Cicuta Netlabel, this release is a good analogy to this, because we can go from poweful and dark techno to the most melodic and danceable techno.
We open the EP with Irish Luke Creed, one of the headers of new techno generations. At just 23 years has managed to publish in some of the most influential labels, such as TMM Records, Elektrax or Heaven to Hell, getting very good feedback from the heavyweights of the scene. It is also Gobsmacked Records label manager with Diarmaid O’Meara, which has been working since 2007 with a great success.
We continue with one of the new values of the prolific Spanish quarry, Jose Pouj. After releasing on labels such as Tsunami and Warm Up, no one doubts the quality and talent of this producer. Another project in which is having success with his own label, Injected Poison, which is distributed worldwide and features artists like Oscar Mulero or Kike Pravda.
The next artist that we present is the Australian Allan Nonamaka, co-manager of Fervent label, and an excellent producer. Although it may sound unfamiliar to someone, has already published two references in Labrynth and published with Inigo Kennedy in Fervent, so stay tuned, is a name to watch.
Then we return to the national product, presenting an issue of Moitan, whose components are old acquaintances and friends of Cicuta, Loisan and Mootiv. As separately, his style is fresh, dynamic, with a techno that does not let you have your feet on the ground, with lots of groove.
Another old friend who returns to publish with us is David Reina, who this time brings a deep track, hypnotic, not for heart disease. Possibly one of the best work we’ve had the pleasure of publishing in our short existence.
Finally, as usual, from Drugstore we present our own work. This time we bring a very eclectic track, without style, designed for people with no musical barriers and prejudice.
Relax, listen and enjoy. Welcome, this is Cicuta Netlabel.

Luke Creed, Nonamaka and the Reina tracks are superb. The others are good but those 3 shine hard and dark.

Energun (Energun Records, BL)
Vuestro tema me ha encantado, me veo facilmente despidiendo un set con él. El tema de D. Reina ya lo conocía me parece que tiene un desarrollo increíble. La acidez que el Sr. Nonamaka a incrustado en su track simplemente me flipa, creo que es mi favorito. Muchas gracias y a seguir así, muy buen trabajo!

Great stuff as always. Favourite for me is “Always isn’t my fault” by David Reina, quality techno. Keep up the good work.
