It has been just over two weeks since Insomniac announced the launch of Factory 93 Records with the aim of curating the best in underground house and techno music. Their latest venture had fans on the edge of their seats eagerly waiting for the freshly minted label to put out its debut release. The time has finally come with Eli Brown dropping “Escape”, a mega three-track EP, to get the label off to a great start.
The Bristol-based rising producer has a massive following that keeps on growing with each song. His popularity stems from his unique sound that is mainly house and techno, and also takes influence from jungle, rave, and drum and bass, given he spent his teenage years immersed in Bristol’s golden era of underground.
The EP starts with the self-titled song, ‘Escape’, a dance-floor heavy techno track with a blistering bassline, a fast-moving techno groove, and some early 90’s Trance elements. The dark, sinister low end rises up for a euphoric experience as the drop kicks in with the sprinkling hats.
‘Morning Light’ is the next song on the list that embodies a melodic techno spirit and defines the sound he is known for. The track continues moving with his signature melody lines over a resounding techno groove. The vocal one-shots contrast beautifully with the brooding bassline as the crunchy synths add to the flavour playing an arpeggiated progression.
The EP ends with ‘My House’ which is a rolling mix of techno and tech-house, with the party-ready vocals being instantly recognized by the fans. The track is filled with classic house elements. The break of the song provides the listener with an unadulterated moment of just the bass with 909 drum grooves. With a short build using a rhythmic synth and drums, the song explodes into the drop which is sure to shake dancefloors around the world.
The whole project makes for an incredible listen so be sure to check out Eli Brown’s “Escape” EP for the best of underground house and techno, released via Factory 93 Records below.
