Sakura Tsuruta brings a fresh tone to the current music roster here on Bardo Records, opening up a new horizon for a label that always had an ambition to tap into various music genres. The smooth and subtle melodic tones are carefully intertwined with soft percussion and comforting bass, all covered with a distant sounding synth lead and vocals. Dystopia is a personal story of re-invention and change and resembles Sakura’s challenges of her transition back to Tokyo, after living in the US.
A first timer on Bardo Records, Ben Tov takes us on a rhythmic journey with this fusion of melody, percussion and the gentle blues piano licks in the first part. In its second part, ‘Techno Blues’ forms into a true melodic techno track when it continues with shaking drums and high-pitched melodies, destined to leave any dance floor in the state of euphoria.
Hypoxia, Kustikov’s first EP on Bardo Records, is made entirely with modular synthesizers and explores a darker electronic sound that features fast paced acid bass lines and heavy drums, combined with deep melodic leads.
With this EP, Kustikov made a bold transition from some of his earlier work that was mostly in the field of electronica and downtempo, but nonetheless, Kustikov provides a strong statement as a producer and closely follows his style from live modular performances, which makes this EP sound energetic and alive. The EP received a massive support in form of a remix of two of the original tracks, Acid Binge and Bearing, envisioned and produced by an established Serbian DJ and producer, Marko Nastic.
Marko heavily contributes to the EP’s dynamic, carefully reconstructing Bearing and Acid Binge with his unique deep grove, long melodic pauses and euphoric drops.

We are delighted to welcome back Jack Lyons, returning to our label with this energetic tech house track Pump It. His unique style is based on blending sounds from the underground rave scene with adding lively atmospheric vibes, uplifting vocals and a bouncing bass line, making this a truly Pumping Piece!
