PREMIERE: Backlogs – 1998

Berlin based DJ and producer Backlogs is back on Secret Keywords with 5-track techno EP ‘Urban Tales’ which includes a remix from Gianmarco Silvetti.

Secret Keywords is a vinyl and digital techno label based in Berlin, founded by Gianmarco Silvetti and Natascia Parisella. Exploring new sounds is a focus for the project, where new experimental shades of techno have lead to featuring artists such as AWB, Conrad Van Orton, YYYY and Michal Jablonski.

Backlogs is one of the resident artists of the Sound Department in Italy who returns to Secret Keywords for his fourth appearance and also lists releases on Shlomi Aber’s Be As One to Cleric’s Projekts.

On remix duty, label boss Gianmarco Silvetti brings a new take following outings on Otomo Trax, Blackwater and Pyteca.

‘Invisible’ starts with harmonic chords that are sharply followed by it’s jackin’ beat and stabbing lead for an old-school ride. ‘Metropolis’ is a throbbing, analogue track with a standout sax-riff making a crazy jazz-infused trip. ‘17’ has a focus on tribal rhythms at its core and combined with an enlightening lead synth, its bursting in dance floor energy. ‘1998’ is a rocking, groove-fuelled experience with droning chords, a bouncing bassline and vocal licks. The remix of ‘1998’ comes from Gianmarco Silvetti spinning it into a raw and edgy remake from new, shuffling percussion.

We are presenting the fourth track ‘1998’.

‘Urban Tales’ EP will be available after the 3rd of May HERE.
