Under the stewardship of Alan Fitzpatrick, 8 Sided Dice Recordings continues to maintain its reputation as one of the most consistent techno labels to emerge in recent times thanks to a steady stream of well-received releases. The label operates as both a home for high profile artists and an outlet for emerging talent; striking a balance between output from Fitzpatrick and that of his contemporaries, including contributions from Rich Jones, Chris Colburn, ON/OFF, Harvey McKay, Hans Bouffmyhre and Nicole Moudaber. Established in 2008 as a vehicle for Alan Fitzpatrick to release his own music, 8 Sided Dice has evolved on an impressive trajectory in line with Fitzpatrickʼs own career. Recognised as one of the most exciting talents to emerge from UK in recent times, Fitzpatrickʼs brand of infectious, modern techno has propelled him towards the upper echelons of the scene and has encouraged an impressive list of legendary techno talent - Cari Lekebusch, Joey Beltram and Slam - to grant their endorsement to 8 Sided Dice. With this latest EP Chris Colburn has notched up eight releases for 8 Sided Dice since his debut in 2010, making him one of the true cornerstones of the labels success to date. A long-standing player within the techno scene on Englandʼs south coast, Chrisʼ passion for the genre goes back to the early 90ʼs when he fell for the sounds of Jeff Mills, Richie Hawtin and Luke Slater. This schooling in the fundamentals of techno is influential within the music he produces today as he brings an industrial touch to the music he makes. Having left a lasting impression on many with his ʻWhippedʼ track back in February, Chris Colburn makes an overdue return to 8 Sided Dice this September. Typically raw and uncomplicated, ʻDestinyʼ is a punchy slice of mechanical sounding techno, fusing wobbly metallic sounds over a punchy kick and incessant hats. Cari Lekebusch delivers two remixes to complete the package, the 06:00 remix that works the track up into an intense, shunting crescendo while the 04:00 remix adds swirling spaced out atmosphere.
