Irgendwo zwischen Kopfhörer und Dancefloor

Website: Ekwal Netlabel

Ekwal is a new independent netlabel dedicated to making exploratory, minimal techno with an emphasis on live performance. Ekwal’s artists approach music from very different directions, but they share a common desire to produce deep, subtle, sounds aimed directly at the dancefloor. Ekwal is currently planning releases by artists from around europe, including releases from ‘deer’, ‘rob park’, ‘red shift’ and ‘dug’.

Releases on Ekwal:

EKL_001 : deer : track delay ep

Ekwal’s first release is a collection of 4 tracks by ‘Deer’ aka Martin Hirsch, featuring a blend of fieldrecordings and experiments in techno and electro. While the first three tracks explore various aspects of the four-on-the-floor paradigm, the last cut, ‘Stationary’, features an excerpt from a living room livejam with Source Records founder ‘Move D’. The ‘Track Delay EP’ was mastered by John McCaig at PanicStudios, Seattle. Deer has previously released as “random noise productions” on Neo Ouija and Hippocamp. His website can be found at
