On the eerie alignment of May Day and Easter Saturday, a day of both death and rebirth, Moneda presents its fifth release ΤΕΦΡΑ by RAW SILVER b2b Oswaldo III.
For anyone who’s kept the pulse of the local Cypriot techno scene, especially the one over 130bpm, is already familiar with this duo. RAW SILVER for his abstraction of techno and his spiritual-like dj sets and Oswaldo III for its live processual render, opting for in the moment intuition over the overspecification of techno. Modelled after an 8-hour club night, from 0000 to 0700, the tracks serve as timestamps of different energy levels and styles of production. With a desire to rekindle memories of clubbing RAW SILVER and Oswaldo III offer 8 club-ready tracks in an alternating b2b fashion.
ΤΕΦΡΑ also touches upon the quest of spirituality in an unlikely constellation of institutions and social clubs: from forex offices all the way to the dancefloor, bound together by candlesticks. A generation's spirit lost to speculation.
This why we perceive ΤΕΦΡΑ as a certain “club imaginary” for which a certain leap of faith or even thought is necessary. A club in which we both make and lose friends.
With this in mind, we dedicate this one to those chasing spirits, above, below and within.
