Various Artists _ Binaural Perception EP [RLSD001]

RLSD _ Vinyl

Dancefloor munitions aplenty with this release from RLSD. 4 great tracks with plenty of potential.

RLSD 001 finally drops, feat. original tracks by Doug Cooney, PGJ and Jonathan K, along with a Lee Holman remix.

In long established tradition, the first outing by Dublin based Techno label RLSD Records has indeed been a labour of love. With small quantities already in All City Records, it’s firing on all cylinders and has been well worth the wait.

With slick production and a heavy riff, Doug Cooney’s ‘Bias’ pounds hard. As his track relentlessly weaves and builds in tension, it reveals the hardware performance central to it’s construction. Similarly, this can also be found on ‘North Strand’ by PGJ; a simple and highly effective tool with classic Detroit muscle.

A collaborative effort between label owners Cooney & Galvin (PGJ) and friends, it is supported by an incendiary remix of Cooney’s lead track ‘Bias’ by Lee Holman and the tough Millsian groove of Jonathan K’s ‘Lucid’.

It is important to understand that RLSD Records are not just a label. Based in Dublin and working under the name of Realsound, they are a collective of like minded folk who provide a host of training courses in all aspects of music production and DJ’ing. With one foot rooted in the club and the other firmly in the classroom, they are helping to sow the seeds of the next generation of Irish DJ’s and Producers.

RLSD lead by example with their first release; delivering on their promise to share opportunities and knowledge within the community. Fair play.

Dancefloor munitions aplenty with this release. 4 great tracks with plenty of potential.

RLSD 001 is released 31st October 2016 on

Early copies are available now in All City Records, Dublin.

Music production and history are my biggest passions in life. Though people often say that Techno is faceless and should be about the music blah, blah, blah.. I believe in the need to document the people and stories behind it. Techno is a very small world in reality and I think it needs a proper resource. I hope that everyone who is interested in Techno finds this blog accessible in terms of the way that it is written. I personally prefer to hear the artists voice as loud as the music and never enjoy synopsised and pasteurised versions of old conversation; the sort that's peppered with the occasional quote here and there.
