Premiere: B1 – Rickie – Smile In The Dark [TNCD002]

One thing, that we obviously do very often in our premieres section is highlight new labels. Today is one of those days, since we’re having a new release by Tancido – a label from Ukraine, whose history started in the late 2022. Run by two producers from Ukraine – Lumitecc and Rozquit, the last one is an active member of the Army of Ukraine right now. Both of them were part of the inaugural VA release, this time they decided to go semi-international.

We were most interested in the track made by Rickie – the name, you probably saw near Overground Recordings. For Tancido, he did something very close, if we’re talking about the vibes. Solid, serious, maybe even a bit gloomy, but still a danceable piece on the edge between minimal and progressive mood. That’s his “Smile In The Dark”.

Another member of this international crew here is Miles – the name, you may have seen on Sakskøbing label not so long ago. He opens the release with another quite serious stomper “Reclamation”.

Now – to the Ukraine team. The first members are a team inside the team – the Kharkiv all-stars Komponente, Kurilo and Saxr. Their “Mysterium Tremendium” seems just to be a bit happier, but still has that dungeon vibe inside. And, finally, O’FourtyFour – stepping into progressive territory, but, in this case, on the tips of the toes. That’s what’s hiding under the name of “Ambulancia”.

So, if you’re searching for some serious crowdpleasers – hit the record stores soon and make some pre-orders wherever you’re buying your wax.
