► INTRO Heart Beat picked a suitable line up for this special occasion. A label night with three young talented label owners and music wise it links nicely to the style of Arcan. Founded in 2015 as a hobby project by three friends and music enthusiasts Jan, Jur and Moritz, transatlanticfm.eu initially served as a free online radio station that would broadcast some of their favorite gems and newest record finds — with a wide spectrum of genres ranging from dark ambient to early experimental music, obscure krautrock, detroit techno and electro, industrial, EBM, new wave and more — blended perfectly into hypnotic hour-long mixes. After a remarkable response among several music heads online, the three went on and took the internet radio to the next level and turned it into a vinyl-only label called TRANSATLANTIC. If you didn’t catch them yet at Equation Hanoi or can not get enough, then this is your chance see and hear them all in one night, in one room, test-driving Arcan’s massive 15 KW FBT club sound system.

►NTHNG [aka Jur ] LABEL OWNER Transatlantic RECORDING ARTIST ON Delsin, Mork, Lobster Theremin and many more. Jur aka Nthng, Transatlantic co-founder kicked off with the first vinyl release ‘The Traveller ‘in April 2017, which was distributed by UK imprint and distributor Lobster Theremin and was critically acclaimed by online electronic music portals.
"Big debut release from Transatlantic as they unleash three storming, trance fueled techno numbers from nthng. You know the drill. Nobody is safe" — Lobster Theremin.
"The Dutch producer nthng gives it to us straight on this 12-inch for the new Transatlantic label. The Traveller sees him channel trance's high drama with tender arpeggios and sweeping pads. This sparse techno hybrid is deep enough to ride the line between kitsch and sophistication—it works because it feels natural" — Resident Advisor.
The Amsterdam-based DJ and producer nthng has already played in some of the most renowned night clubs in the world like Berghain in Berlin, DV1 in Lyon, Bassiani in Tbilisi or Razzmatazz in Barcelona among many others, and has released on respected labels such as Delsin, Lobster Theremin or Mörk.
EUROPA [ aka Moritz] Label Owner Transatlantic - RECORDING ARTIST ON Lobster Theremin
Transatlantic's second salvo came from debutant Europa, a producer who's not ashamed to showcase his (or her) many influences. Opener "Facegrinder I", for example, boasts ghetto-tech style pitched-up beats (and vocal samples), glacial synthesizer melodies reminiscent of Kraftwerk's Trance Europe Express album, and the kind of ragged, mind-bending acid lines that were once the preserve of Rephlex Records' battery of brain-dance nutters. The braindance influence comes through even louder on the pleasingly skewed "Facegrinder II", whose mentalist beats are this time accompanied by choral vocal samples and sweeping strings. Finally, he pays tribute to everyone's favourite analogue loon, Aphex Twin, on the brilliant (and bonkers) "In The Jungle (Meeting With Richard David James)".
The enigmatic young producer and DJ Europa is currently based in Hamburg, Germany and studies at the University of Fine Arts Hamburg. He draws his electronic music inspiration from many renowned artists such as Basic Channel, Aphex Twin or Muslimgauze and has been playing the piano since early age. Europa has played various clubs and festivals across Europe such as Mägede Hääl, Estonia, Mono in Hamburg or Griessmühle in Berlin.
