Turbo Records Celebrates it's 100th Release


100 years ago i had a dream: release music I love, with pro graphics, without going bankrupt. 100 12-inches later, Turbo stands high on the rubble of crumbled empires: Mo'Wax, Factory, Institubes all dead in our wake.... we will never give up the fight: music we love, dressed for success, format-democratic, NEVER going bankrupt. Climbing to the stars, 300 copies at a time. it's just us and Jack White, motherfuckers... bring on the next 100. See you in 2017. 

Love from Montreal,

Some Reviews From the Turbo Recs Staff:
Belgium's Sound of Stereo gets the kids' hands up high. These guys are going to get huger sooner or later. Anyone need a breakdown?
Proxy protegé
Marseille brings the raw ghetto insanity of Russia to the people. It's got more WOOs and bleeps than the rest of the remixes combined. We counted.
Finally, Turbo Scottish young guns
Clouds rough out a grinding, deep-fried bass-trap belter. It momentarily relents and teases the Rhodes, then it's right back to pitiless face-mashing for these eleven-year-old prodigies.
Gesaffelstein, the next big French techno star, white-hot off his new Conspiracy EP, has turned in an absolute god-hammer. The Turbo office has been flooded with requests for advance copies. And we've flooded other people's offices with straight-up "NO"s.

Clouds, Sound of Stereo, Marsellie, Light Year and more... Fucking Awesome! My only question or concern about Turbo 100, Where is the Proxy?

Turbo Recordings gets a massive congratulations from this blog for the release of their 100th 12''. Turbo has brought us so many great tracks over the past 10 years, it's hard for me to imagine the state of electronic music without them.

To celebrate their 100th release, Turbo is releasing Turbo Century: the definitive label retrospective. 69 favorites from Turbo’s first 100 records, affordably priced, and released in 4 parts starting April 22nd.

Release Dates:
Turbo Century I : Friday, April 22nd
Turbo Century II : Friday, May 20th
Turbo Century III : Friday, June 17th
Turbo Century IV : Friday, July 22nd

Turbo 99
Conspiracy Pt. 1
Parisian Producer Gesaffelstein is all set to release his new EP Conspiracy Pt. 1. Even though Turbo's 100th might be packed full of big names including Gesaffelstein, #99 should definitely not be glossed over. Conspiracy Pt. 1 is Gesaffelstein's second EP on Turbo and it is so much better than the debut, Variations EP. Variations was interesting but Conspiracy is amazing. I highly recommend that check out Hatred down below and grab the whole EP when it drops on April 25th here.

Aufstand (Original Mix)
The Lack Of Hope (Original Mix)

Bonus:Check out a new track, "Vulcan Alarm" from legendary pair ZZT. The duo consisting of Turbo Recs founder Tiga and Zombie Nation who brought you The Worm and Lower State of Consciousness. Don't know anything about release dates yet, hopefully soon. Sorry about the quality, it is a set rip but you still get some felling for the song.

It's been a bit since I've been able to pull this together but here we go with another ten tracks up for you to grab. Given how big soundcloud previews have gotten and the lack of downloaded singles that are available, I'm sorry if these songs are old news to you. If they aren't, then get excited. These are the top ten tracks that have been on repeat for me. Check 'em out.

Jewel Kid - Break My Heart (Computer Club Remix) (320 kbps)*****
- This track is huge and is probably one of the best dance-electro songs I've heard in a while. The drop at 1:30 is essential.

Cyberpunkers - Fuck The System (You Killing Me Remix) (320 kbps)
-Evil and hard.

Willow Smith - Whip My Hair (Crizzly Remix) (320 kbps)
-A ridiculous song turned into a dub stomper. Good job Crizzly.

Trolley Snatcha - Blind Faith (Trolley Snatcha Remix) (320 kbps)
-English Dub at it's finest.

Night Kids - Off With His Head! (192 kbps)*****
-This song crushes and is chock full just really cool sounds. Definitely don't miss this.

Amadou & Mariam - Sabali (Vitalic Remix) (320 kbps)*****
-This song may be old, but it's too goddamn good to miss. If you don't have it, get it. If you do, listen to it again. It's really fucking good.

Udachi - Stumble feat. Short Stories (Vocal Mix) (320 kbps)*****
-One of my favorite songs of the past months. The vocal chops that come in at 1:27 are flawless and something I haven't been able to get out of my head.

Nadisko - Prelude (The "S" Remix) (128 kbps)
-TCHNCRCY favorites The "S" put it down again.

Britney Spears - Till The World Ends (Bloody Beetroots Extended Remix) (128 kbps)***
-New track from Sir Bob. Good stuff in the stylo of Fucked From Above 1985.

Rusko - Everyday (Netsky Remix) (128 kbps)
-Massive remix by Belgium's Netsky. If you don't mind D'n'B drums, the bassline is epic in the way Flux Pavillion and Doctor P put it down. Check it out.

Blaster and Touché Records: Cybertron EP

Blaster (a.k.a. Guillaume Cloutouis) is a 22 year old french producer that doesn't hesitate to make his tracks as hard as possible. If you are a fan of Q.G., then these tracks are for you. Blaster's Cybertron EP, released on the very young Touché Records (BvD & Hypethembeats), is a banger to say the least, and not to mention his most polished work to date. 
The EP includes two tracks: Cybertron and Chainsaw, with remixes by K.OH!, Dead Cat Bounce and many others (as well as some Transformers samples). Check out my favorite tracks below and definitely buy the EP over HERE.
