What's easier than pressing the button play to get a clear idea of

perfection? For the first time we welcome "The Second Sence" on Inlab



A German Duo composed by two dreamers hungry of deep synths and

demoniac basses.

2 tracks for 2 different atmosphere. The ying and yang, angel and

demon for a perfect balance between dancefloor and easy listening techno.


On the other side, the remix of Sarcasmo has only one goal :

explode any souls who are near the speakers when the Dj'll drop this sound!!


This remix is one of the ultimate pick of the label owner for this

year.. No doubt this will be an anthem for techno lovers.

Dial P For Progressive 2K18.1 (MNL Music)

Review by Progressive Astronaut

Cinematique kicks off 2018 by welcoming The Second Sense to the label for their debut EP. Marco Thull and Philippe Bessel-Lorck hail from Cologne, Germany and founded The Second Sense project in 2017. A long history of producing and performing in live acts paved the way for their unique fusion of sound. Having already debuted on Parquet Records last year, The Second Sense now joins Cinematique with their ‘Famous’ EP. Spread across three tracks, the EP begins with the smooth, melodic title cut ‘Famous’. It’s energetic tempo, tight rhythmic core and tasteful melodies set the stage for a compelling vocal motif, highlighting the break in particular before a wave of modulation brings a lovely crescendo. The second selection ‘Hanging Wires’ is perhaps the EP’s most progressive sounding production. The tempo shifts down a touch for a deeper, groovier vibe, while the duos uncanny knack for subtle yet emotive melodies remains prevalent. Dropping the tempo further and rounding out the collection is ‘Tie Me’. A quirky, spaced out slice of deep techno, complete with choppy percussion, moody bass swells and an esoteric lead theme. It rounds out what is a very diverse artist showcase and no doubt makes The Second Sense an artist duo to keep a close eye on as 2018 moves forward.

They already released on labels like Ostwind-Records and Datapunk and had their first release on Parquet Recordings "Scales" in August 2017.

"The Second Sense" describes the second of the classic five senses of an human being:
The hearing, the auditory perception with the ears.



The duo, consisting of Philippe and Marco, was founded at the beginning of 2017. Both come from the Rhineland and collected already a lot of experience in electronic music in the past with various releases on well-known labels such as "Datapunk" or "Ostwind Records" or as a co-founder and organizer of open-air events in the area of Cologne and Bonn.
With "The Second Sense" both are breaking new ground: a sound consisting of pronounced melodic parts and punchy basslines. Releases on labels like "Parquet Recordings", "Straight Ahead Music" , "Cinematique/Manual Music" or "Inlab" underline the melodic techno-orientated direction. So "The Second Sense" is proud to release its music among great artists like Boss Axis, David Prap, Douglas Greed, Einmusik, Hidden Empire, Italoboyz, Jos & Eli, Marc de Pulse, Microtrauma, N'to, Nikolas Noam, Oliver Schories, Oxia, Pig & Dan, Rauschhaus, Ryan Davis, Sacarsmo, Sascha Sonido, Sebastien Leger, Solee, Supacooks, Third Son, Township Rebellion, Worakls and much more.
