We’ve got some peak-time jackin techno arriving on our Soundcloud just in time for the weekend as Romanian techno prodigy Michael Ius lands on Insolates Out Of Place imprint. We premiere ‘Move Your Feet’ – a rolling slice of groove-infused techno, that nods at both 90’s hip-house & early 00’s crackling techno cuts, instant floor-filler.
Young techno wunderkind Michael Ius debuts on Insolate’s Out of Place records as the 24th release on the label. The newcomer arrives on the Croatian imprint with 5 infectious vintage techno grooves leaning on cheeky vocals, rolling bass, and sizzling percussion hits. The EP has been roadtested across Europe by some of the hottest names in techno right now including Chlaer, Alarico, Lobster, and label boss Insolate.
Insolate’s Out Of Place Records has been on a roll as of late featuring standout EPs from newcomers to the techno scene Teo Harouda & Bruno Caro. 2022 also saw the label have a standout year showcasing music from Rove Ranger, Kashpitzky & SERA J who have gone on to be hugely successful following their releases via OOP.
Today we focus on the label’s 24th release as they welcome the exciting Romanian prospect Michael Ius to the fold. The new name arrives with 5 track EP that is bursting with fun-loving flavour, taking inspiration from the jackin and bouncing side of early 00’s techno records, seemingly referencing seminal acts such as Player, Ben Sims, D.A.V.E The Drummer, and more.
We premiere ‘Move Your Feet’ a bouncing bow of the head to bouncing hip-house of Chicago and dirty shuffling UK techno. The hip-hop-orientated vocals play off the pulsating bassline to devastating effect, add some shuffling percussion grooves and a descending synth stab and you’ve got a little slice of vintage techno that airs on the fun side of techno. This is a surefire way to light up a dancefloor.
