Close Encounters Series 1st Release!

30drop Records presents the first release of Close Encounters, the newest and the final concurrent serie of the label. 

In every release we will have four tracks, four artists and one common goal: The proposal is based on feasible, or better said, future encounters with extraterrestial beings or civilizations from outer space. The idea behind the whole work is to construct a conceptually and musically self-sufficient bundle of tracks developed by several producers.

30drop - Close Encounters


DJ Surgeles, Jeroen Search, 30drop itself and another label’s member, ORYX 9, are the manufacturers of this first chapter. 

DJ Surgeles has a solid career as DJ and producer with, for instance, his releases on Something In The Sky, the captivating and exquisite label of Jeff Mills. Jeroen Search is another well known talented producer with a large discography behind him that opens the EP with a steadfast cosmic shot, “Aeon”. “Umbra”, a spacey on a firm body track by DJ Surgeles, takes over from. On the B side, 30drop drops us to a “Lunar Mission” launched directly from the dance floor and, finally, ORYX 9 invites us to a psychedelic floating experience on a distant galaxy “Black Market”. 

First Contact EP is a massive set of Sci-Fi Techno cuts that you should not miss it!
