Blade&Beard Share Track From New EP
'Dark Valley' is the debut release on the Iranian duo's new label.
Blade&Beard are, most famously, the subjects of German filmmaker Susanne Regina Meures documentary Raving Iran, which describes their dangerous lives in Teheran’s underground techno scene and their resulting trouble with the authorities. Following a gig at Switzerland’s Street Parade party, the duo decided to immigrate to Europe. Now, Blade&Beard have announced their latest project, a new label called FUTURIST.
Kicking off the label is Dark Valley, a three-track EP championing their deep and melodic techno sound. From the cavernous opener, “Frozen Echo,” to the swirling synths of “The Void” and the title track’s galloping grooves, Dark Valley proves the move to Europe was a fruitful one and signals them as ones to watch in the coming months.
You can pre-order Dark Valleyhere, with “The Void” streaming in full below, along with the trailer for Raving Iran.
