(CICUTA 008) Drugstore – Gaia EP


Artist: Drugstore
Title: Gaia EP
Catalog#: CICUTA008
Release Date: 15/04/2012
Styles: Dark, Industrial Techno, Offbeat


Welcome to the eighth release of Cicuta Netlabel. For an artist, all his works are something unique, something special. If you answer him about his favorite, he probably tell us it’s difficult to highlight only one. But always there is some works which, for one reason, are in a special place in his mind, and are usually reserved for a special occasion. In this case, Drugstore’s crew, sign this EP, with three special tracks, reserved for this great moment.

On one hand we have 2 tracks (Gaia and Kundalini) designed for the dance floor, closer to offbeat, with vocals and unconventional samples. Moreover, we have a more experimental track (Circon), closer to the netaudio world, in which this kind of works are usually well received.

About remixers, we have to Oliver Kucera, Czech producer based in Holland, one of the birthplaces of techno, with a track with a lot of strength. Oliver is one of the most promising artists in the European techno scene, as well as demonstrates their great collaborations with artists like Mattias Fridell, Space DJz or Carlos Rios. Recently, he has started his own label, Kucera Records, with a very good acceptance in the first release.

Another artist who is with us is CBTØ, Spanish artist from Seville, currently residing in Berlin, and one of our favorites in recent times. Jorge is a different artist, making music not usually oriented to the mainstream, but puts the soul into every track, and that is something that hooks you from the first listen.

Finally, we present a new Spanish talent, David Meiser, who has made an impact since his first track, being played by the great Dave Clarke in his radioshow. It has a style closer to old hard-techno from Eastern Europe, which is much appreciated in these times…

Relax, listen and enjoy. Welcome, this is Cicuta Netlabel.

Me parece de los más energéticos que habéis publicado ultimamente. Tanto Gaia como Kundalini son dos grandes temas y la interpretación de David de éste último me parece muy buena, perfecto para calentar cualquier pista. Circon es muy esprcial y CBTO le da un giro muy bien llevado.
Humo (ES)

Massive EP. Full support.

Pues el tema principal, Gaia, es el que más me ha gustado tanto el original como el remix. El remix de David Meisser tambien me ha gustado mucho, más parecido a lo que produzco.
