Its ten years since both Tom Ellis and Leif released their first ever vinyl record Mindtours 06, which also featured label boss Steevio. This marked the beginning of Tom and Leifs steadily growing reputation on the international underground house and techno scene, with both artists releasing countless records and tracks on many important labels.

Modular Techno Vol 2. – Steevio [Mindtours 14]
All tracks were extracted from Steevio’s practice sessions for his live performances at the Freerotation Festival. All sound creation and sequencing was improvised from scratch on his modular synthesizer and recorded in real time.
Steevio pushes the sequencing complexity and harmonic relationships to new levels, whilst maintaining some of the rawness of the first volume.
We have only a few copies left of MT13, a 12” vinyl 4 track EP Modular Techno Vol 1, from label boss Steevio. The EP forms the first in a series of live improvised analogue modular jams. Vol 1 was recorded during practice for his live set at the Freerotation Electronic Music Festival 2011.
