The techno imprint Tortured was established in 1997 by Billy Nasty and went on to considerable success and critical acclaim with releases from the likes of The Advent, Adam Beyer, Marco Carola, Dave Angel, Space DJz, Hertz and Umek. It was without doubt one of the UK’s leading Techno labels of its time, an era that many people now refer to as the golden age of banging techno.
Now in 2013 the label rises again with the first release from RadioNasty with their “Breakin Bad EP”, which includes two killerrr remixes from Ben Sims.
EDM master craftsman Kramnik will return soon with the release of his first full-length album, “Dark Matters“. Highly revered within the electronic music community, Kramnik effortlessly combines flawless production skills with a fearless approach to sampling throughout.
Progressive techno is the spinal cord of “Dark Matters“, with each track a journey through an atmospheric soundscape. Kramnik’s bulletproof understanding of the conventions of the genre has given him license to throw that rulebook out the window. It is intensely cerebral work, music for the true connoisseur.
