project, among the collection of topline artists to release their maiden productions on
Over two decades into its lifespan, Drumcode keeps evolving and excelling, pushing techno forward while remaining wholly respectful of its roots. This reputation for progression was further fueled this summer with its inaugural festival at the NDSM Docklands in Amsterdam, featuring a long list of heavyweights including Nicole Moudaber, Joseph Capriati, Amelie Lens and Ida Engberg, among others.
As ever, the A-Sides compilation provides a timely opportunity to showcase the full range of its sonic repertoire, with Adam Beyer scrupulously selecting unreleased tracks that have taken prime position in his sets over recent months.
Part 4 see's Alan Fitzpatrick, who’s been heavily featured across the A-Side series, join forces with Scuba as he operates as his uncompromising alias SCB.
The result is a propulsive floor-gripper that testifies to their masterful deftness as co-producers.
Rounding off the A side British techno alchemist Boxia sets out to impress with 'Final Call’ which elicits physical engagement with mellifluous vocals and soaring pads.
On the B side Jay Luman unleashes 'Stella Luca' another bomb that has featured in Adam Beyers sets over the festival season. Dynamic drums & an uplifting top line melody intertwine all the way through with all the trademarks of this being yet another smash by the infamous Hungarian techno producer and DJ.
Closing part 4, emerging talent Weska is brought into the fold, with the razor-sharp track 'Other Places' that is primed to do lasting damage.
