Italy’s AGENTS OF TIME have long been on the KOMPAKT radar. It started thanks to their exemplary releases on Correspondant and other labels such as Stem, Ellum plus last year’s collaboration with Mathew Jonson (from whom their name is inspired by). Michael Mayer had chance to play with them last summer at one of their Obscura parties and their friendship was cemented. Which leads us now to their five track KOMPAKT debut, entitled MUSIC MADE PARADISE. From our early days of releasing landmark tracks from JUSTUS KÖHNCKE, the label has never been shy of exploring the enigmatic fringes of disco in our own way. AGENTS OF TIME follow these footsteps but head into galactic territory with MUSIC MADE PARADISE. They continue their knack for bridging synth-wave with modern bass rhythms in a means which are purely designed for today’s dance floors. We’re proud to make their label debut with an incredible selection of music from this talented trio. French touch meets Italo chic on Drive Me Crazy. At first, My Heart is A Microchip comes across as a segue track, but opens into cascading synths and a predatory breakbeat to lead its own charge. Under Control is classy Moroder disco brought to the modern age. Aptly titled Interstate 10 is an EP highlight – the percussion lead is infectious and ready for prime time exploration. Auf dem Kompakt-Radar sind AGENTS OF TIME aus Italien schon länger. Grund dafür sind ihre Veröffentlichungen auf Labels wie Correspondant, Stem und Ellum oder ihre Kollaboration mit Mathew Jonson (der sie auch bei ihrer Namensgebung inspirierte). Auf einer ihrer legendären Obscura Parties letzten Sommer hatte Michael Mayer das Glück, mit dem Trio zu spielen und nicht nur die Freundschaft, sondern auch ihr 5-Track Debut “MUSIC MADE PARADISE auf KOMPAKT war besiegelt. Seit den frühen Tagen - man denke an die Veröffentlichung diverser Meilensteine von JUSTUS KÖHNCKE - zeigt Kompakt sich nicht zaghaft, wenn es darum geht, Disco und seine schillernden Sub-Genres auf eigene Weise zu entdecken. AGENTS OF TIME folgen dieser Tradition, brechen mit MUSIC MADE PARADISE jedoch in galaktische Territorien auf: Dabei halten sie an ihrem Kniff fest, eine Brücke zwischen Synth-Wave und modernen Bass Rhythmen zu schlagen, die wie gemacht ist, um auf ihr zu tanzen. Wir sind stolz darauf, dem talentierten Trio ihr Label-Debut mit einer fantastischen Auswahl an Musik zu ermöglichen. Drive Me Crazy kombiniert Italo Chic und French Touch. My Heart Is A Microchip kommt zuerst wie ein Track für den Übergang daher, öffnet sich dann aber in einem Wasserfall an Synth und einem gierigen Breakbeat, um auf seine eigenen Kosten zu kommen. Under Control wiederum ist klassischer Moroder Disco, der in die Moderne überführt wurde. Ein Highlight der EP ist Aptly titled Interstate 10 - die Percussion steckt an und wartet auf die Prime Time.
