CLR´s present release is a three tracks EP consisting of Terence Fixmer´s follow up of “Psychik” and two Monoloc remixes of his memorable song “Love Sick”.
The originator´s brand-new composition “Psychik (Part 2)” is a smoothly driving, thoroughly absorbing and faultlessly produced Techno track with an uplifting vibe. Terence Fixmer´s approach to Techno has always transmitted a certain warmth and sincerity, and in both of his remixes, Monoloc pays respect to this rare talent of the French DJ/producer. The Frankfurt based CLR artist combines the haunting vocals of Cormac with a soft and elegantly rolling beat, creating a mesmerizing, otherworldly atmosphere. Monoloc´s gentle and skilful production style wonderfully underlines the depth of the original.
All of the three tracks come across deeply soulful, hypnotic and enchanting. CLR075 is a diversified and irresistible EP with an intriguing sonic vision - music for the mind and for the dance floor

But as midnight begins to dip into eternity, closer “Subspace Two” offers up a lasting sunny reprieve. The EP ends on a serotonin-soaked moment where dub, techno and house close their eyes and sway as one. ‘Bells’ is a versatile record, which sees Terence Fixmer cater for every nocturnal occasio
