CIMMN 08:50


Northern California based dj/producer Hjalmar Hake (aka OILPANIC) returns with his second EP for 530Techno entitled CIMMN (Carl Is My Middle Name). Lush, big room vibes and summer psych rhythms pervade both original tracks neither of which fall easily within commercial genres of dance music. Always pushing the boundaries, Hjalmar's music is a good mirror of his personal character, being at once original, warm and rooted in nature as well as cosmic and visionary. No other sound has been so influential in crafting the 530Techno imprint as Oilpanic's lateral thinking take on electro, techno and house. For this very special EP, we enlisted two of our heroes of electronic music to provide remixes for Carl Is My Middle Name.
Brendon Moeller (aka Beat Pharmacy, Echologist) kicks out the big room jam with a conjuring of Ozric/CAN vibes over block rocking beats and analog sounds. Perfectly suited for the summer festival circuit, Brendon's Acid Dub reminds us, the future is now!

J Hunsberger (Cynosure, Mule Electronic, Audiomatique) strips CIMMN down to its essentials and turns in a beautiful reconfiguration of the CIMMN synths while keeping the spacey vibe of the original. Impeccable production and an appreciation for fine detail, J Hunsberger's Hawaiian Island Re-Rub feels like ocean waves lapping up at you on a warm summer day.
