We’re delighted to welcome back Secession Label to our Four Four Premiere series, this time the label hosts a 90’s infused techno collaboration from up and comers, FORUM & Jay York. The pair have whipped together a dynamic funky techno tool, channeling tribal and spiralling influences.
Secession Records was founded in 2018 in Osijek, Croatia by longtime DJ and producer Volster, and it has since gone on to be home to both established and ground breaking techno artists, being the birth place of new and compelling techno cuts.
Follwing on from some very strong 2022 releases coming from Tehotu and a various artists release with reputable names such as Marcal, A.Morgan, Paul Laurens, no.name, Irish based producer PageOne and more. The label now hosts FORUM & York who have been knocking out impressive releases as of late.
FORUM recently released on TWR72’s OOM Records which has been receiving heavy support from some of exciting techno DJ’s. Jay York has been turning heads with some stand out DJ show’s alongside Arthur Robert, Truncate and more. He’s also had a string of self releases which have been going down a treat, as well a remix for Flits.
The pair have joined forces to bring a 90’s techno inspired EP to Secession, focussing on evolving loops, syncopated rhythms and straight up classic techno funk. ‘Crimson’ leads the EP as a strong opener, drawing on rolling drum grooves, gnarly hats, yielding synth hits and pommeling low end. This is an essential tool for an techno DJ.
