Who? Blawan and The Analogue Cops, infamous analogue techno producers. Together they are Parassela.
Why? Blawan's risen to prominence as an artist with a taste for rough, uncompromising warehouse techno. His tunes send sparks flying and have found themselves on labels such as R&S, Clone Basement Series, Black Sun and Hinge Finger. His DJ sets are just as raucous, offering high speed 4/4 that's as brutal as it is stylish. He's found perfect accomplices in The Analogue Cops. The Italian duo serve raw, rhythmic techno that bumps and grinds like it was mastered using sandpaper. They've released on Sabotage and Restoration and most recently on Bleep, where they shared wax with Karenn (aka Blawan and Pariah). And that's not the first time they've had a release out with Blawan. They put out a collaborative EP on Vae Victis and have gone on to form Parassela, a formidable outfit that has currently produced two EPs. They've turned in an exclusive session for Mixmag and it's a quality workout.
What can I buy? Parassela's 'Label Nightmares' EP is out now on Vae Victis.
