Familia EP1 Launch
The much awaited debut EP from the brand new Familia imprint is finally here. As one of Egg's longest running events it only seemed a natural progression for the Familia camp to start their own label, having such a solid base of b
The brand new label opens with a sterling split artist EP featuring a selection of driving house & techno backed with remixes from the likes Pele & Shawnecy and long affiliated Familia artist, Cristian Varela.
Fabio Ferro steps up as one of Familia main men and it’s not hard to see why he’s built up such an impressive following. His productions are regularly supported by the likes of Richie Hawtin, Marco Carola and Paco Osuna and he has quickly made a name for himself on the international Techno scene, adding to his repertoire further with two sure fire tracks – ‘Buzzin’ & ‘Solution’ on this release. On remix duties are none other than Pele & Shawnecy, who’s sublimely groovy Tech House sound has been showcased on such esteemed labels as Cocoon, Cécille, Get Physical, and Terminal M. Their offerings are regularly finding their way onto set lists at the biggest parties and festivals on the planet, and as such they are a perfect choice for this stellar debut release from the Familia label.
Two versions of ‘Thin Red Line’ are served up from Familia promoter and resident Nick Tcherniak, accompanied by uber talented vocalist River who’s powerful tones have resonated on releases with artists such as Faithless and One Tribe on labels including FFRR and Perfecto.
The very first Familia event in London was headlined by Cristian Varela, so it’s only fitting that the first label release includes a storming fully charged mix from this multi award winning Techno icon and one of the biggest DJ/Producers to have come out of Spain. Here he turns in a relentless and rolling powerhouse of a mix that is sure to find favour on the floors of clubs for months to come.
And it seems the imprint is off to a flyer with some heavy support from the likes of the legendary Danny Tenaglia, technical wizard James Zabiela, Stacey Pullen, Joris Voorn and Luigi Madonna all pulling the tracks out, as well as Ibiza Sonica and Ibiza Global providing full radio support.
With two more releases already lined up and rumours of Oslo and Cocoon artist Christian Burkhardt featuring, the Familia label is set to have a very healthy and exciting future.
The EP is available exclusively on Beatport until 23rd March and on all other major outlets after that. Grab a copy here - https://pro.beatport.com/release/familia-ep1/1472199
