Fast approaching 20 releases, the Italian trio FOLUAL have achieved great success in just 6 months since inception as a label and outfit. With recent salutes from Sasha, Jon Digweed, Sister Bliss (Faithless), Spektre, Spartaque, Eric Powell and many more, plus their podcast reaching a staggering 250,000 weekly listeners worldwide, the future is very bright for the two Lucas and Alesandro. Upping the anti on their own Apogee Recordings, we see the first outside name make it onto the label, as Carl Cox favourite Phutek reworks one of their biggest tracks to date. Injecting his club-friendly Hard Techno sound into FOLUAL’s ‘Code’, Phutek creates a very different track indeed, but nonetheless an exciting addition to the Apogee story and hopefully not the last appearance on the label. Already garnering heavy support from Anderson Noise, Steve Parry, Paco Osuna, Golf Clap, Luigi Madonna, Drumcomplex, Sisko Electrofanatik, Eelke Kleijn, Basil O Glue and many more.
A future Techno weapon!
