Terence Fixmer - Le Terrible EP | EDLX.017

Terence Fixmer
Le Terrible EP
Electric Deluxe

Terence Fixmer has been a regular fixture of the techno world for 10 odd years, although it's his more recent work that has been getting our attention at the Department. His Comedy of Menace LP from last year and the Electric City EP (both on Electric Deluxe) are some seriously good techno, as well as a collaboration with Claudio PRC on Prologue earlier this year really tickling our fancy.


The PWDcast #01

Welcome to the first edition of the PWDcast, a series of mixes put together by some of the best and brightest of the Melbourne scene, and beyond. First up, we have our good friend James Manning from TEA, with an hour and a half of deep techno goodness.

PRG022 - Cio D'Or - Magnetfluss EP Samples

Swoon. Prologue have uploaded samples for a new EP by our favourite lady in techno, Cio D'Or.

PRG022 - Cio D´Or - Magnetfluss EP by Prologue

Cio is amazing, both in terms of her production and DJing ability. Every EP she puts out is on the money, great slabs of deep house and techno, and by the sounds of the samples this is no different. September 22 is the release date, so you can safely expect to hear something off it at our next event

Until then, keep working! 


Unbalance - Red | Indeks 026

Indeks Music

Red is the latest offering from Russian techno producer Unbalance, finding a home on the Ukrainian label Indeks Music. This is one that came quite out of leftfield for us, given that the Ukraine is not normally known for techno, and especially techno in this style, although in this case class shines through.
