CURSES: NYC will forever be my home. The energy is addictive, but I became too comfortable. I didn't feel challenged anymore, and needed an environment that embraced being honest with your creativity. I got caught putting the emphasis on being popular versus being brave. Berlin challenges me and allows me to make and play the music I love.

Is it the sound we can expect on January 30th?Curses Jetzt Oder Nie EP (TEASER)
The three of us all have similar but different styles. Lawrence (Total Fitness) likes his house and disco. Cranks holds his heart in the harder techno, and I am a sucker for those gritty italo arpeggios. Somehow it all works together because in the end we are a nocturnal techno label, so expect a blend of it all.
Lawrence, what are you up to in 2016?
TOTAL FITNESS: I have an EP coming out on Safer At Night in February as well as a few EPs outside the label including one very special vinyl release on Parka Records. I'll also be Berlin for a large part of the spring/summer into the fall...
And you Alex, are you taking Berlin?
