AWAY Music is set to start a new techno-focused label called Astray.

The Berlin-based brand is known for some of the finest selected house and techno lineups at About Blank, hosting names such as Derrick May, Moodymann, Omar S, Hunee, and DJ Sneak, to name a few. As a label, AWAY Music has so far released work from Move D, Christian Vance, and their own AWAY Soundsystem.

The first release on the new label will feature an EP by the talented newcomer Discrete Circuit, co-founder of the imprint who has previously released on DVS1’s Mistress Recordings, Darko Esser’s Wolfskuil, Delsin, and Mark Broom’s label Beard Man. Road Force is described as a versatile four-tracker showcasing both the dancefloor and the experimental sides of techno, and will land on June 30.

Ahead of the release, the label has offered up an “Impressions” rework of “Circuitry,” which is available as a free download below.
