Known to his peers and industry tastemakers as an artist in the very truest sense of the word, industrious Parisian Chris Carrier has been distributing a relentless stream of pristine house and techno since the early ‘90s, creating a colossal back catalogue of timeless releases dispersed among label heavyweights Apollonia, Get Physical, Robsoul, Brique Rouge and Slapfunk, alongside the launch of a myriad of his own influential labels, including Label Adult Only Records, Chronobrain and Sound Carrier.
With his name never eclipsing the music itself, he continues his fine form with a stellar release on Cassy’s label Kwench Records, covering all sub genres of stripped down house and techno with a finesse for the finer details and production nuances.
Packing punch and panache in equal measure is ‘Dream Nation’, a striking techno cut that has all the bang and bustle required to crush any dance floor.
Snipping at the heels of Carrier’s lead track is ‘Positive Distraction’, a propulsive track fixed with an accomplished arrangement that teases as it swells and unfolds.
Closing out the release is ‘Seed Of Gratitude’ – full of vigour with a zigzagging, prodigious outing that kicks in with a infective, jacking bass line.

“Chris is one of my favourite producers. We worked on a remix together almost 10 years ago now which is still such a memorable experience. It was only a matter of time until I signed him to Kwench and he’s dropped a beauty of an EP with three versatile and effective club tracks.” – Cassy
