Likewise is a brand new techno project founded by veteran producer Jeremy Reid AKA Tapwatr (Attitude Recordings, Noerg) and Dominic Poulin AKA DJ Tenzin (Attitude Recordings, Tech Safari), both instrumental figures in the electronic music underground in Montreal, Canada. Pulsating with hypnotic energy, Kiss My Aura demonstrates a dark and edgy vision of minimal and progressive techno. Toronto producers Knifestyle and Aerodrömme both put their own twist on the original to round out the release.
Pop The Cherry features a set of four floor-filling tracks by Aerodrömme, a vibrant new Canadian techno and progressive act founded Boris Kurtzman (DJ Shankar) and Steve Chan in 2008. With releases on Tribal Vision Records, Spiral Trax, Plusquam Division, and Blue Tunes, Aerodrömme has emerged as one of the most promising names in progressive techno. Their style is an effective blend of progressive house and minimal techno with a hint of electro, all tuned and tweaked for maximum dance floor response.
