We are very proud to present the debut album from Cassegrain, unique and as usual unbelievable good.

Info-
Cassegrain continue their empowering run of techno electronics with 'Centres of Distraction', their debut album on Prologue.
Leading us on a 10-track expedition into a wilderness of rugged, challenging sonics, the album marks the production duo's development from adventurous new-bloods to fully fledged Techno explorers.

Over the course of the last five years, Alex Tsiridis and H¬¬üseyin Evirgen, now both firmly entrenched in Berlin, have created a heavily detailed rhythmic language of morphing synthesis, high end processing and club-chiseled production. A basis for much of their studio work, their controlled, hardware-focused live sets have brought them to a unique and respected position as showmen.

A nod to the classic 90s electronic album format - spanning a wide range of tempos and genres - 'Centres of Distraction' covers a lot of ground. After the opening club-ready syncopations of 'A Study Of Splashes', itself a warm and addictive cut, the duo set out on a new exploration in purist electronica, beginning with 'Resilin'. Morphing from abstract and reduced broken beats into a stirring melodic piece, it's the most song-structured we've heard them.
And so change and contrast are to continue as key themes. 'Centres' drops with its funky, off-centre lines and rattling percussion, to be quickly followed by the mighty 'Intrude - Restrain'. 'New Hexagon' charms us into a deep hypnosis with its percussive and rhythmic synthesis, highlighting the intricacies of the duo's drum programing.

The serene mid-tempo tones of 'Glasshouse' create yet another dramatic change in focus as a temporal, high-pressure and high-intensity atmosphere is built and then gently deconstructed. But Cassegrain also stands for high-end dance music, and 'Scythian' is perhaps the peak of the album in that respect. An unrelenting and timeless shock of electricity, the stuttering, frenetic energy winds its way around the heart of Cassegrain's current club sound.
Again dropping the tempo in search of refreshing alternatives, renowned Greek cellist Nikos Veliotis (of the Mohammad group on PAN, or In Trance 95 on Minimal Wave) contributes his growling, measured strokes to 'Empress Cut In Segments'. An intense soundtrack of sublime cacophonic peaks, once again tappng into a newly developed taste for melody and progressive structures.

The album approaches its end with 'Arcane', the type of psycho-techno that Cassegrain do so well - metallic lines overlapping and modulating to full effect - the tension palpable. This is the prelude to the beautiful 'Seldom Cloud' that sums up all of the more experimental, melodic studies found on the LP. Floating bells and ethereal bodies swarm in a fitting conclusion to the album.

OUT NOW ! PRG036 - Cassegrain - Blood Distributed as Pure Colour

Dear all


Prologue presents three new tracks from the Berlin based Cassegrain. This new EP draws in the focus as we see the duo further finesse their sonic language of complex tribal percussion and intense acidic elements. In anticipation of Cassegrain's debut full-length due in autumn 2014, this next chapter of tracks - not taken from the LP, but acting as a sound manifesto of sorts - highlights their ongoing explorations. 
When you close your eyes and stare into nothingness, that private virtual space, what does your brain see? Shimmering cells dancing in the void, clouds in your consciousness, the particle elements of a distant past - blood distributed as pure colour. 
Cassegrain invite us to spark a connection with the ancients lying dormant within. Across three intense tribal studies, exploring a fine potions of voodoo acids and hypnotic extra-sensory sonics, we are transported to places far and exotic. Up the winding rivers, into the jungle landscapes of our ancestors, where rhythm is sacred and blood is power.

PRGLP006 - Edit Select - Phlox

Dear all

PRGLP006 Edit Select (2x12") can be now ordered at Bandcamp. 12" includes digital files as well.Edit-Select is the project of Scottish DJ Tony Scott and one of the pioneers of deep driven hypnotic Techno. Already confirmed with tracks like Bauer on Ostgut Ton or his own label “Edit Select” Tony belongs to the best and most respected techno producers in the world. Nearly all of his techno tracks have been played and charted by all Techno DJ ́s. But that’s was not the reason to sign the album “Phlox”. No, we really think the moniker Edit Select with all his passion for deep driven techno track is more than a perfect fit into our label philosophy. Tony ́s ability to design real hypnotic was already recognized from us for years now. So much the more we are extremely proud to present “Phlox” a extremely doped mixture between emotional ambient tracks and very effective sci-fi tricks tracks moving to hypnotic monsters for the dance floor. We see as well a new Bauer version, one of the best techno tracks ever in our opinion and last glad our mate Dino Sabatini has contributed on track “Survivors Of The Pulse” . Phlox will be available late February as vinyl version.

Thanks from Prologue for the support !

PRGLP005 - Echologist - Storming Heaven (Album announcement)

Dear all 

we are happy to annouce our 5th album on Prologue. A diamond in the rough. Echologist aka Brendon Moeller is undoubtedly one of the most hardest working Techno artists around the globe and has left a prolific trademark in the electronic music world. His 10th album, Stroming Heaving“ floods us with deep emotions and a unique sound experience. Prologue is always looking for new directions of electronic music and we feel strongly that this album fulfills the Label´s pursuit in a extremely exciting way. It will be treasured for years to come. This is music to immerse oneself in and explore sonic depths and worlds of synthetic sound that resonate on many levels . Brendon's intention for this album was to push himself beyond the comfort zone in an effort to make an album that more than any other project he has done will reveal a distinct and unique voice. While it reflects musical ideas from composers that have inspired him, he has attempted to personalize and interpret and therefore create something idiosyncratic yet nostalgic. „The Frequency Of Love“, the first track shows us what humans can do with machines. This is the perfect way to start the journey into this masterpiece. It is with pride and excitement that we present this to you. Dive in and enjoy the sound of an artist in full bloom.
