As a representative of the new burgeoning hungary scene, Route 8, influenced by 80s synthpop and house rhythms, combines efficiently lo-fi, raw and melancholic techno through his sounds. Having released a number of EPs in 2013, this eclectic DJ and producer was discovered then via his Soundcloud page by Lobster Theremin founder Jimmy Asquith (Dry Thoughts EP, Cruising & The Raw Feeling). The opportunity for us to ask him to make his top 10 releases on the label.
1 · D.Dan – The Danger Zone
One of the best techno release I heard this year so far. Perfect record for burning up the dancefloor especially with the title track.
2 · Daze – Lips
That Lips track oh god, I smile and dance everytime I hear it somewhere.
3 · DJ Wave – Above The Clouds
I think this is the best lobster release so far. 2 space techno tracks for the dancefloor and one slow burner for lonely summer nights.
4 · Imre Kiss – Midnight Wave
Originaly came out on Farbwechsel but Lobster Theremin pressed it on vinyl rightfully so.
5 · Palms Trax – Equation
This is the EP which made me join to Lobster Theremin.
6 · Privacy – Hypertext
4 synth electro jams for dark rooms. I cant even count how many times I played the New Wake Trance track in various clubs.
7 · Raw M.T. – La Duna
Raw M.T.’s finest EP. His Untitled track takes me to another dimension all the time.
8 · Richard Harrow – Acid Hammer
Acid cant get better than this.
9 · S. Olbricht – A Place Called Ballacid
Out of this world rhythmic explorations by my good friend.
10 · TRP – Pano
Raw house jams with that signature TRP square bass I love very much.
