DJ THOR (Italy) I really like “Your Body”, an hypnotic track, a deep journey with a Balearic touch. Thumbs up!

DJ FUNKY JOSH (Panama/USA) Well rounded EP full of energy! My Favorite track: “Ski Mask Does Acid”

BENJAMIN FEHR (Berlin) Excellent release, for sure in my bag! “Deep state of mind“ is for me, pure dynamic and groove, good work! I will play it for sure and Defora  is always worth a listen!  Always!

STEVE RASKIN (Fort Knox Five, Washington DC) Three solid floor burners on this release. Love the heady vibe on “Your Body” and the crazy energy of “Ski Mask Does Acid”.

TREVOR RICCI (NYC/Sundays From Harlem Radio Show) “Your Body” Great late night vibe. Nice syncopation, nice baselines, sweet groove! “Ski Mask does Acid” Great track! Real authentic 90’s acid feel to it….Really nice! “Deep State of Mind” Really nice transition track when you want to go from higher energy tracks into some deeper stuff.

MURVIN JAY (Belgium) Big up for Belljack new EP and Defora Records  “Your Body” & “Deep State of Mind” are the best for me.

MARIJAN FELVER (Stereotip, Zagreb HR) Happiness, sadness, whatever: You’d have to be heartless to not feel whatever you’re feeling that much more after listening to Defora music. Their grooves are leaner and synths brighter. The result is mysterious and weightless and sounds like it’s from land of flannel and pretty trees. A pure celebration of the pleasures and self-love in getting people to move their bodies.

APRIL COMES EP by Lotech/Hijack DFR061 // OUT NOW

Defora Records presents “April Comes” the new EP by Canadian DJ/producer Lotech/Hijack. Dave Karwowski hails from the city of Kitchener, Ontario Canada. Having been interested in odd/quirky music since childhood with soundtracks from sci-fi and B-movies as his early influences, Dave began DJ’ing in 1991 after being exposed to early house and techno. He has had the pleasure of playing on the same bill as many international techno artists over the years. Beginning production in the early 2000’s, his style changed from harder techno towards a deeper sound. After discovering the ideas expressed by the titans of dub techno, he shifted his production to dub techno and ambient. Settling on the moniker of Lotech/Hijack, a constant search for a unique sound within dub techno has been at the heart of his production. Something for the dance-floor that can also be appreciated in a listening environment. His debut EP on the label features 3 amazing original tracks, something special for those who want a deep, groovy and immersive sound to get lost… Always Good Vibes with a Hard Twist!

Liminal Nation EP by Eponymous DFR060 // OUT NOW

Defora Records presents “Liminal Nation” the new EP from Swedish DJ/Producer Eponymous. The name Eponymous is a wordplay and it means giving one’s name to something, so he chose it as a tongue in cheek nod to artists taking names. Musically, he also likes to give some nods here and there, having a very broad range of influences. Born as Petter Karlström he grew up near Gothenburg, where independent music of all kinds has always had a strong foothold. This exposed him to everything from post-punk and new wave to electro-acoustic and experimental music. But what really caught his interest was the way that early techno from Detroit and Berlin seemed to combine the DIY-attitude of punk with electro-acoustic experiments that were also danceable. He’s currently based in Stockholm and for Eponymous techno still represents an anything-goes attitude. His debut EP on the label includes 3 outstanding original tracks that perfectly describe his unique sonic universe. Always Good Vibes with a Hard Twist!
