There’s no shortage of quality underground electronic music coming out of Romania these days, with techno, tech-house and minimal seemingly the country’s favoured flavas. This new compilation from Unfelde Records, a label who I don’t think have featured on TIWWD before, is just one example!
And yes, techno, tech-house and minimal are what you can expect to hear across its eight tracks, which come from eight artists most of whom you’ve probably never heard of. But that’s not to say it all sounds the same, with cuts ranging from Andrei C’s smooth, dubby (and quite house-y) Plutesc In Aer to the twitchy, glacial minimal of Robert David’s Frigu, via the looping, terrace-friendly tech-house of Jerome C’s Carlo’s Gone.
It all gels nicely, though – making this a good bet whether you’re looking for ammunition for your DJ sets, or just want to take the path less travelled when it comes to home listening.
