This July will see Fur Coat launch their new Oddity imprint aimed towards a darker, tripped-out Techno sound with their ‘Genesis’ EP, accompanied by a remix from electronic music pioneer’s Slam.
Venezuelans Sergio Munoz & Israel Sunshine aka Fur Coat have carved out an impressive career over the past six years via releases for Watergate, Crosstown Rebels, BPitch Control and Balance, making them highly in demand DJ’s across both Europe and the US. Having graced the decks at key clubs across the globe including Berlin’s Watergate, Stereo Montreal, D-Edge Brazil, London’s fabric and Space Miami to name just a few, the duo are now set to debut their new imprint Oddity which has already garnered early support from the likes of Tale Of Us, Mind Against and Slam, who contribute the first remix on the label with a production contrived from the reaction and energy experienced from dance floors worldwide when playing the original version of ‘Sustain’.
“Starting our own label is something that we’ve had in mind for a long time. It´s a platform for us to express ourselves and have 100% the control on the art concept we want to put on each vinyl, the music we want to show from ourselves, and the artists we share passion for, giving us the ability to invite them onto the label.
The meaning of Oddity is having something rare, odd in a good way, something really special. This whole project has been cooking for almost a year, piecing things together. We can say we are giving all our efforts to put out there the music we like with a special touch on every physical copy, with an artwork made from some pretty cool Colombian artists and designers based in Barcelona (Lina Bassiouny and Maria Paula Quiva).” – Fur Coat
Up first on the package is ‘Pulse Width’ which sets the tone with robust analogue rhythms, fluttering arpeggio leads and elongated bass drones to create a dynamic and subtly unfolding opening track. The digital only cut ‘Parallel Dimensions’ follows and lays focus on weight sub bass tones, modulating percussion and snaking synth grooves to once again create something hypnotic and intricately crafted.
The vinyl only original mix of ‘Sustain’ then opens up the flip side, tipping things into darker realms with a heady, unfurling square wave bass, tension building atmospherics and a pervasive rhythmic drive before Scottish duo Slam round out the package with their take on ‘Sustain’, offering a predominantly drum-led interpretation whilst elements of the original subtly ebb and flow throughout the composition.
Fur Coat’s ‘Genesis’ EP is out on Oddity 14th July 2017.

This May will see Maxime Dangles deliver his debut LP ‘Resilience’ via Parisian imprint Skyrptom, comprising twelve tracks from the French producer and a remix from Techno veteran’s Slam.
Maxime Dangles has carved out quite the production career over his nine years in the industry, making his debut on Cologne’s Kompakt imprint, Dangles can also most notably be heard gracing imprints such as Oliver Koletzki and Florian Meindl’s FLASH, Herzblut and of course Skryptom where he returns to here to offer up with debut album. Skyptom is a Parisian based imprint established in 2006 by Electric Rescue and over its nine year standing has welcome the likes of Traumer, Laurent Garnier, Truncate and Jonas Kopp into its catalogue to carve out the label’s signature Techno infused sound.
Across the ‘Resilience’ LP we hear Maxime offer up a cross breed of styles from the off-kilter atmospheric feel of ‘Borderland’, ‘Burn’ and ‘VIII’ through to more straight and direct Techno cuts like ‘Rough’, ‘Resilience’ and ‘Ventricule’. More experimental offerings are provided too such as the ever blossoming, eerie vibe found in ‘Ride The Snake’, ‘Doctor Rules’ and ‘Pressure ft. Gran Cavalerie’. Further gritty electronic workouts come in the shape of ‘Amsterhodes’ and ‘Withstand’ and all in all the ‘Resilience’ LP shines a light on Maxime’s progressions as a producer, painting the bigger picture of his broad and discerning sound palette.
Alongside the LP Maxime will be touring his LED Live show which he tells us ‘’The main idea was to provide a visual concept adapted to an average scene: inexpensive, easy to assemble & disassemble, easy to carry, and especially easy to use without any major technical means.’’ You can preview Maxime showcasing the show live at REX CLUB in Paris below.
