Out Now! Reissue of one of Amsterdam’s most respected producers Steve Rachmad aka Sterac ‘s essential 1996 Detroit style techno classic. Remastered and housed in full color artwork.
Originally released on stalwart Dutch Techno label, 100% Pure (then entitled Primus / Osirion), this one has been getting plays by a fresh new wave of deep digging DJs over the past years. This timely re-issue was needed.
The A side Osirion, is built on a classic drum loop layered with Rachmad style arppegiators and euphoric strings. The B side features a more abstract 909 Detroit infused loop, full of heavy synths and percussion. Both tracks have stood the test of time and sound fresh as ever.

“Hunch Music” has won the VPRO 3voor12 Award for best Dutch album of the year! It’s the first independent electronic music record winning this prize. Yesterday evening Hunee received his trophee in Amsterdam, a wonderful occasion that we felt deserves a special mailout.
Hunee’s debut album was nominated by the Dutch main indie-pop platform, next to the works of Dutch artists such as 2562, Fresku, John Coffey, Joris Voorn, and Ronnie Flex amongst others. The jury stated: “In the past eleven editions, the 3voor12 Award has had several winners, but never an electronic album. Reason for change. Hunch Music won, because it is refreshing and extraordinary musical. It is a complete ride, with changing moods, that keeps surprising. An album that is hard to categorize and is also easy to fall in love with, even when you don’t fully grasp everything yet.”
Hunee’s replied: “[…] Award shows are a funny thing. […] It’s never about wining – because every good track you’ve written, that’s your award! But receiving this award has a significance, in that it’s the first independent electronic music record winning it. So I do hope it is sign of a shift in dutch indie music industry, so all those brilliant and talented people writing beautiful electronic music in the Netherlands (like Legowelt, Young Marco, Juju&Jordash, San Proper and many others) will have many awards coming their way.”
