Back to 1990 and the Uk’s Bleep Techno scene is in full flow. Following the success of ‘Psyche’, Peter Duggal set about raising the bar yet again with his follow up
‘Labyrinthe’ under his new alias Demonik. Originally released on the UK’s hugely influential Rham! Records, this EP perfectly soundtracked the early rave scene in the UK and beyond.
‘Labyrinthe’ itself needs no introduction, a truly mesmeric and highly sought after warehouse anthem. The previously unreleased ‘Labyrinthe’ (Raw Mix) keeps up the pressure. Retaining the heavyweight sub-bass, this mix heads off into a sparser world of machine made funk and rave inducing stabs, whilst skittish bleeps and tones overlay the sinister chords and strings. There’s yet more gold from the vaults in the form of ‘6-5-0-2’ a once lost, and now found, future classic of the genre, where infectious melodies interweave and really stir the electro soul. Lastly ‘Frenzy’ adds an uplifting synth riff, making this episodic ride a true Bleep and Bass Bomb!
‘Labyrinthe’ has been legitimately re-released with the full involvement of Peter Duggal and features previously unreleased tracks and never heard before versions that Peter has unearthed from his DATs. This is an essential archival piece, lovingly remastered by London’s Curve Pusher from the original sources especially for Mint Condition. 100% legit, licensed and released.
