about

Nick Woolfson makes a return under his AKRA guise to his fledgling Teng imprint this June, with

'TunnelVision', backed with remixes from two heavy hitters in the world of deep electronic music,

namely Matthias Vogt and Iron Curtis.

Teng Records was launched by Nick Woolfson one half of the electronic outfit, Mock & Toof, in 2012 as a

platform for Nick to release a newly formed house and techno sound under the AKRA alias. Now seven

releases deep the imprint has spread it's wings and blossomed into an already reputable label, with Neville

Watson, Matthias Vogt and Nubian Mindz on the roster, and the likes of Ewan Pearson, Kerri Chandler, 6th

Borough Project, Chicken Lips, 2Bears, The Revenge and Groove Armada supporting, testament to it's quality.

The release opens with the original version of 'TunnelVision' here, which sees AKRA delve deep into his dark,

atmospheric vibe with eerie tones and cavernous reverbs, a boomy kick and crunchy drums add a further

weight, while the focal point introduces a cosseting organ melody and emotive piano chords, adding a

shimmering beauty to the record. Next up Matthias Vogt turns in a remix following his Mias Void 'Tactics' EP

earlier In the year, Vogt takes things in a deep techno direction with some saw-wave bass action, 707 style

rhythms and smooth, evolving pad lines. The latter stages introduce more bubbling bass tones and some

resonant psychedelic synths for good measure, once again tasteful stuff from Vogt.

Closing the release we have another remix of 'TunnelVision' from German house maestro, Iron Curtis,

stamping his signature analogue sound of the original, with a raw intensity, delicate intricacies and baroque

structural changes resulting in a profoundly interesting rework. The track progresses with raw, shuffling drums,

acidic bass hits and sampled, warbling vocal lines, as expected resulting in more intelligent, unique, work from

Curtis.
