sparkie Think Global Communication, but with the more rhythmical elements. Lush and deep. Favorite track: 1830.

Chris Detjen Ambient dub type of techno. Stands out in a genre that can sometimes become all gray (where tracks begin to sound so similar). Feels like some of the techno from Marcus Guentner. Favorite track: Ascend and Return.

Pete Srdic What a perfect release. Mature, deep & hypnotic and beautifully mastered. The only thing that could make it better, is more of it ! Amazing EP & eagerly awaiting to see what more magic tdel weaves.

tdel is the abbreviated alias of Tom deLaubenfels, a resident of Atlanta, Georgia. A lifelong enthusiast of electronic sounds and music, Tom has been experimenting with production for a number of years while continuing to explore his love of deep and hypnotic genres such as techno, ambient, and kosmische. In 2013, these affections brought him to the legendary Labyrinth festival in Japan, and as was true for many like-minded artists before him, the experience was profoundly inspiring. (This is also where he met Hal Floyd of DTH and came to know the label). Tom began to channel these inspirations into his music upon returning home, and, together with the influential sounds of a particular synthesizer, the ideas began to coalesce. The results can be heard on the Ascend and Return EP. Tom has also been mixing techno and house records for more than 10 years and is known for his carefully considered selection and mixing.
