Robag Wruhme is something of a master. Colby Nekk is stripped back, experimental techno brilliance.
Shane Berry put together Just, Whatever, Be With Me EP for a label I have a soft spot right now, the wonderful Greta Cottage Workshop. Berry's work is melodic minimal at it's very best. But the label also has deeper leanings with previously released work by Nicolas Jaar and new work from Michael J Collins amongst others imminent. Recommended.
