Insect O. is without any doubt a pioneer of Dresden´s electronic music scene. With his new release on etoka:shapes he shows his whole experience – collected in over 15 years being involved in techno music. After tracks for the own ETUI imprint, Coyu’s Atypical Farm, Mancha Records and Dresden based Phonocake he delivers four well produced tracks which could be described as melodic, dreamy and also kinda frisky but always with a touch of deepness. Each of these four tracks got an own story to tell but all of them come around with a special and gentle old school arrangement combined with contemporary sounds in a mixture between Dubtechno and Techhouse.
etoka:shapes was founded in autumn 2009 as a sub label of Liverpool based Etoka Records. The label´s focus lies on releasing deep house & techno sounds – brought to you by some of the most talented artists from around the globe.
