When you're running a record label, it's pretty rare that you find music this perfectly formed, yet nobody in the world knows about it.
But we guess that's what happens when that producer comes from Colchester.
And so we are very excited to give you Attaque; an extraordinarily precocious talent making some of the best modern techno we've heard.
Tiga, Erol Alkan, Fake Blood and Brodinski all agree.
As with many an Essex youngster, he found electronic music through years of getting wasted in the shed behind a pub listening to Laurent Garnier.
He left the squadies and peroxide blondes of Colchester, and moved his studio to Brighton with the lesbians and fish'n'chips, where we found him making something unbelievable.
His first EP on label-of-the-moment Bad Life was 'Light Falls' and it shook the very foundations of electronic music. Huge support from the biggest names and BBC Radio 1 followed, whilst Mixmag made it their "track of the month".
Alas recently for young Attaque tragedy struck. His Brighton dream is over. He's been forced to return to his native Colchester; leaving behind his beloved town of big beat, St. John's Wort and tofu-crazed-militant-eco-liberals.
For back in Essex, gypsies had occupied his childhood home.
He finally regained control of the house after emerging the victor in a traditional tinker triathlon of hare-coursing, cock-fighting and bare-knuckle boxing. In celebration of this momentous triumph, he sat down amongst the debris of his reclaimed kitchen and wrote his second massive EP for Bad Life: 'Moderate'.
'Moderate' has continued Attaque's rapid rise to darling of the scene, with massive coverage across the blogs and a stunning response on soundcloud. Word spread quickly of his awesome debut DJ set supporting Zombie Nation at XOYO in London, as he stakes his claim to being the most exciting new performer in Future Techno.
His huge remixes for Luke Walker and Japanese Popstars are out now, whilst another for Bart B. More & Rubix is coming soon, and he takes to the road for DJ bookings and live shows throughout the Autumn.
