New Techno offshoot from Still Music, Chicago.
"In a need for contemporary conversations with deeply admired artists , it has become a necessity to add a new imprint to the family of legendary labels founded by Jerome Derradji.
Still Techno is tailored to expose the artistry of known or unknown Techno producers throughout the world. Our first release is from absolute Detroit techno legend and long time friend, Mark Flash.
Mark Flash is an essential member of the Underground Resistance collective and a vital member of Galaxy 2 Galaxy, Timeline and Depth Charge with Mike Banks.
It is an absolute honor to have Mark launch our new label with his 4 track EP “Alkebulan”. This EP is an incredible set of contemporary Detroit techno.
The title track “Alkebulan” is a fantastic world hybrid tech joint. With “Dementia” and “Centraal Station”, Mark is honing back to familiar territories with productions reminiscent of his UR roots.
Finally, “Black Male Syndrome” closes the EP in an all Detroit electro tech fashion.
Let’s start our new conversation with Mark Flash."

Will Bankhead- Trilogy Tapes
Damn! Exciting! Your stuff is instant props from me always, one of the only promos I receive that I KNOW is going to be great
Andrew Hodge - ESP Institute
Still Techno? Yes please!!! This is what techno should be about... swagger and funk. Groove and emotion. Feeding the head and the feet at the same time. I love all the tracks. Thanks again, it's renewed my faith again in the face of all the brick wall-limited nonsense that masquerades as techno lately.
What a great way to start off the new label! we need more techno like this

Another great EP, Jerome - love the Afro structures on 'Alkebulan' and 'Centraal Station' is magnificently funky and epic.
Quinton - Strut Records
Dementia' is a monster that I could easily imagine Laurent Garnier bangin' at the Rex some 20 years ago
