Spectrum is the latest new addition to the Splinter Productions stable, and joins labels such as Jericho, Hedgehog and Splinter Recordings. Championing a sound that will appeal to both the techno and house communities, Spectrum is a forward thinking label featuring both the best established artists and the creme of the new talent around. The first release is an all Brazilian affair with the fantastic 'Triads' from two producers who need no introduction, Gui Boratto & Anderson Noise. This is flipped with a brilliant remix from a new star of the Brazilian scene Andre Sobota. We expect big things from Mr Sobota, and have already picked up 2 fantastic tracks for release in early 2009, featuring remixes from two heavywieght names.

PMP is proud to bring you the second installation of the LINWOOD SERIES. This release has three new remixes of the ANDY TOTH original. The first is a deep cut by PMP regular ITZONE, from Mexico City. Itzone's remix is an ethereal take on the original, with a groovy triplet feel and flighty top-end sound effects. The JOSHUA HARRISON remix is a clean joint with a heavy bass line and a new syncopated synth line over the top. KEITH KEMP adds his signature textures to the upbeat on his remix, and reinterprets the vocals to create a feel that's entirely fresh. Drop any of these tracks next time you need to fill the dance floor. Also keep an eye out for PMP013, with new tracks by COLIN ZYSKOWSKI!

Move On the titled track is a deep techy beast with cross genre appeal. Jack Your is a high energy house smash sounding very similar to early 2000's style house. Lesson Well learned should appeal to any JT Donaldson or Brett Johnson fan with an acid bassline and echo'd synths stabs. You Yah Yo What is a trippy melodic bounce fest featuring happy synths.

Mossmoss brings a breath of fresh air to a club scene that is usually bent on taking itself too seriously. Scottish born, Mattie Bowen has been essential in the growth of techno and actively inspires audiences through art visually and aurally. His pursuits all deeply exude a level of class, compassion, and charisma. His own breed of minimal techno born from the bedrooms and studios of San Francisco offers a hint of a vast repertoire to come that inspires the mind and body simultaneously. Mossmoss was one of three artists featured on Race Car Productions Volume 1, their virgin effort. Since then he released an absolute powerhouse of a remix for Monocle's Dilleniidae which stole dancefloors the world over in 2007. With a wide open career in both art and music, and a new EP on Alland Byallo's NLMX net label, Mossmoss will become a household name.

Techno De Ultra Tumba is the first project from Kid Perra for Difusion Records. Kid Perra are two talented artists from San Luis Potosi, Mexico who were destined to make music together. This was a very interesting project which was sent to us a few months back and put on hold to be structured and mastered due to the high content of fat bass lines, deep kicks and strong sequences. We find a very intense dark side on all four tracks, dark minimal techno 100 % dance floor oriented. This four-tracker has been extracted from Kid Perra live sets which have received rave reviews all over Mexico. Zarbeat has collaborated on this EP and also remixed Mascador De Fierro showing his dark side.

He has been supported by Ian Pooley, Mark Farina, Stacey Kidd, Terrence Parker, Mike Dixon, Hystereo, Paul Anthony, and DJ Emma to name a few.
