Coming Soon: Douglas Pagan “Afrikromatic” Instrumentals” EP


(cover preview–final cover may be different)

Voltage Music is proud to present a new EP by Douglas Pagan of Recondite Music. Following 2012’s well-received “Compressed Funk” EP (featuring remixes from Aybee and Altered Natives), Pagan now ventures into moody IDM territory with his latest batch of tracks.

The “Afrikromatic” instrumentals EP [Catalog # VLT-014] features five original compositions (see tracklist below), including one song offered for free download. The EP will be released in early March 2014, and available via all major digital retailers.

Recorded using primarily analog synths and drum machines along with processed live guitar and effects, the EP was intentionally produced like a live session, rather than overly edited, to preserve Pagan’s improvisational and freeform compositional style. The EP was mastered by LA’s esteemed Darkart Mastering, using top notch signal processing software and gear. Look for more updates and goodies as the release date approaches.

2. The Solitary Life (of the Beatmaker)

3. The Face

4. Old Playas In Spacesuits

5. Slow Drag * (free download)

Voltage Music & Shockman Support BLN-FM

Voltage Music and SF producer Shockman are supporting independent Berlin radio station and magazine BLN-FM.

Shockman’s “Shockout (Bakir Deeper Dub Remix)” appears on BLN-FM’s new Travelling Gems Volume 2 compilation.

So what is BLN-FM?

BLN.FM was founded in 2009 with the goal to supply Berlin with what it lacked before: an independent media platform with a focus on electronic music and city life. BLN.FM is organized as an unincorporated association which not only provides a network for connecting the editorial and other supporters of BLN.FM, but also serves as contact point for commercial partners and cultural institutions. BLN.FM is financed through membership rates, donations and voluntary work of its many supporters and friends.

With currently 60 members of staff, all coming from different parts of the broad field of media, BLN.FM is strongly connected to the creative culture of Berlin; the engagement of everyone involved is idealistic. The core team coordinates the many editors, writers and speakers. Every week, the editorial department for music chooses the best new releases to be aired on BLN.FM. The great experience of the editors in the music business and their subcultural roots deliver a wide range of styles in the program – also, that may be the reason why BLN.FM usually comes up with new music some weeks earlier than others.

Both the web magazine and the 24/7 broadcast are available through the website while the radio program is also being broadcast via FM on the local frequency 88,4 with approximately 15.000 listeners every hour. Furthermore, the program is available through various internet radio services all over the world and consistently listed among the top ten stations for electronic music on aggregation sites such as This success of BLN.FM as a non-commercial and independent radio station is, of course, motivating for everyone involved. Berlin needs a medium that reflects the attitude of the city – BLN.FM meets this challenge.

BLN-FM Comp Tracklist:

Todd Terje – Ragysh

Collective Tower Street – What If (Jimpster Instrumental)

Myrryrs – Feel U (Clicks & Whistles Remix)

Tensnake – Something About You

We Play – The Music We Play (Mam Remix)

Dark Sky – Neon

Recloose – Electric Sunshine

John Tejada – Timeless Space

DJ Hell – The Angst (Tony Lionni Remix)

Shockman – Shockout (Bakir’s Deeper Dub Remix)

Forensics – Last Call (feat. Wrexile)

TRO – The Beginning

Gesaffelstein – Opr

Luis Ruiz – El Antiguo Astronauta

Unbalance – Mad Loop

Housemeister – Music Is Awesome (Housemeister Rework)

Meat Katie – Bizarre Is Beautiful (MartOpeteEr Remix)
