After HC first vinyl release, our digital division is now born, with the aim of releasing exclusively cds and digital music.

Mslwte is the producer in charge of the label launch, with his album "Seasonal Disorder". With his 11 tracks, Mslwte gets into the private recesses of the mind, altered by the environment: The vision of a post-apocalyptic and desolate world, or thousands of miles away from the Planet Earth. Always with a techno frame of British tradition as reference, he combines the hardcore continuum long chain with an industrial pulse, which doesn't stop beating with isolation, dark ambient and varied sonorous landscapes.

Since the equator of the album, the soundscapes - "Brenell", "Aneurysm" and "Secular Audio Transmission"- act as brief interludes that reflect the influence of the medium, or it in itself. Then we find the scenarios "Clang", which reminds to the cyclic, hard, rush and metallic; "Defy", a combination of techno and breakbeat, with an archetypal motif of techstep and neurofunk, which runs alongside the track, with subtle glitches and baffling decorations; and "No Need For Anyone", omnipotent techno with Birmingham roots.

In the second half, the sonorous landscapes continue playing an interlude role, but now they are longer and become way more important. "NS16" is a natural phenomenon, dominated by a massive boil, with the shape of a wall of noise; in "Drone" the  tones overlap themselves, building a dissonant and inhospitable environment; "No Slaves No Masters" is another accident, finishing the album with sulfuric acid rain, that reminds us to Aphex Twin. Between them, "Red Screen" goes deeper into what "Defy" exposed before, but this time with a bigger industrial footprint. Finally, "We All Leave The Same Way" features the most emotive moment of the album. The introspection produced by "the watched", thanks to a constant rhythm and a reduced, penetrating and baleful melody.


Tras el lanzamiento de la primera referencia en vinilo de HC Records, nace la división dirigida a publicar únicamente música en cd y descarga digital.

La inauguración corre a cargo de Mslwte con el álbum Seasonal Disorder, que a partir de once tracks consigue adentrarse en los privados recovecos de la mente alterados por el entorno: la visión de un mundo postapocalíptico, desolador, o a miles de kilómetros de la tierra. Siempre en un marco techno de tradición británica como referencia, se combina la larga cadena del hardcore continuum y un pulso industrial que no deja de latir con aislacionismo, dark ambient y variados paisajes sonoros.

Hasta el ecuador del álbum, los paisajes sonoros –Brenell, Aneurysm y Secular Audio Transmission– actúan como breves interludios que reflejan la influencia del medio, o éste en sí mismo, para dividir los escenarios Clang, que recuerda a lo cíclico, contundente, afilado y metálico; Defy, una conjunción de techno y breakbeat con un motivo arquetípico de techstep y neurofunk que recorre el track junto a sutiles glitches y adornos desconcertantes, y No Need For Anyone, techno omnipotente que encuentra su raíz en Birmingham.

En la segunda mitad, los paisajes sonoros siguen cumpliendo la función de interludio, pero ahora se extienden y cobran especial importancia: NS16 es un fenómeno de la naturaleza, caracterizado por un bullir masivo en forma de pared de ruido; en Drone, los tonos se superponen construyendo un ambiente disonante e inhóspito; No Slaves No Masters es otro accidente, que cierra el álbum con una lluvia de ácido sulfúrico al estilo de Aphex Twin. Entre ellos, Red Screen ahonda en lo expuesto por Defy con un mayor deje industrial, y We All Leave The Same Way presenta el momento más emotivo del álbum, la introspección que produce lo observado, gracias a un ritmo constante y una melodía reducida, penetrante y funesta.
