139208Affekt Recordings has its base in Frosinone, Italy and has been ran by Alex Dolby since 2012 culminating a passion for raw, hypnotic techno. The label’s back catalogue of music has seen artists such as Pär Grindvik, Alex Bau, Mental Resonance, VSK and MTD make contributions.

The latest release compiles fresh works from label head Alex Dolby himself for his fourth artist album entitled “Fault System” having released music on labels outside of his own like Emmanuel’s ARTS, DJ Emerson’s Micro.fon as well as Shinedoe and 2000 and One’s Intacto imprint, his educated sound is much loved around the world.

A love for analogue sounds, rough textures, and tough rhythms play a huge part in the album’s dystopian aesthetic that is as functional for club weaponry as it is a collection of abstract cuts for electronic music lovers.

Easing in gently with “Intro Signal” Alex experiments with a sparse sound design element before moving into the up-tempo Detroit influenced drones of “The Day After”. Following this things heat up with “Standard Process” being a manic monster, and “Modern Pascal” introduces a style switch up to a two step beat. Title track “Fault System” is a throbbing sonic trip and “The Afghan Express” is a blistering techno ride.

“Wild Yard (Reprise Mix)” sees a special release of a new edit that was originally supported by Ben Klock. The eighth track “Lunatic Boost” pushes a raw and broken beat, whilst “Chord Memories” injects vibrant energy once again, then closes proceedings is the jazzy style break of “Outro Signal”.

This album is a powerful statement of intent from a veteran producer that wishes to make a mark with another accomplished selection after being active in the scene for over 15 years.

137582_web“I start my career in 1991, I was 18 years old in France , I was playing commercial music, funk, disco, 80’s, euro dance, rock, pop, groove & RnB, and then I discover electronic music, first was trance music and few years after it was house music and from house music came deephouse. It was a kind of revelation.
In 2001 I start composing. It took me years to create something good and nice.
I released few tracks in different labels but the consecration was in 2016 when I sign my first album «Time lapse» on my favorite label of all time: Plastic City!
And now this is my 3rd album and this one is much more better than the two others . It’s the album of maturity.
because I give a lot of myself on this album…”
