B2. Altra Mondo
Belgium’s LINK Audio open their 2021 schedule with a 4-track EP from CYRK.
CYRK is a live show and studio duo born from the visions of two Berlin-based producers, Samy Goossens and Pascal Hetzel. They have been busy playing around the world as a live act, bringing their Detroit-influenced blend of techno, acid and electro, as well as their love for all things italo to some of the world’s best dancefloors. From their extensive hardware set up, they fuse tough, eyes-down grooves with propulsive basslines and restrained, melodic atmospheres. Their studio work has led to acclaimed releases on Running Back, Rawax, Burial Soil, Vakant, Avoidant, Dred, Lone Romantic, International Chrome, Discos Atonicos and their own Time Zero label, as well as remixes for Fabrice Lig, DJ Hell and T99. In September 2021 they released their debut album, ‘Escaping Earth’ on Muallem’s (of-Blitz-club-fame) label, Childhood to much international acclaim. There is more in the pipeline: an electronica/ambient album, two very special collaborative releases, which will be announced in due time, and another 12“ on Science Cult.
On ‘Memorial’ they deliver 4 intense Electro cuts in their own distinctive style, to be released 14 January on vinyl, followed by the digital release on 21 January.
