Nicolas Bougaïeff rolls out a seamless hour of heady techno for our Fresh Kicks mix series.
The Berlin-based artist knows more about minimal techno than most people — and he can prove it! Originally from Quebec, Canada, Bougaïeff has a doctorate in the subject, obtained from the university of Huddersfield.

Cleric marks his Clergy label's 10th release this month, teaming up with Setaoc Mass for a eight track EP.

Titled 'Isolate', the record features a mix of heady-but-hard techno, ambient explorations and a suprise slice of floaty electro — today's premiere, '188'.
Building from abstract beginnings, the track becomes increasingly busy and beat-driven, while plucked notes reverberate off into the ether all around.
