Derrick May's seminal Transmat opens it's storied book on a new chapter with his record from French producer Karim Sahraoui. Founded way back in 1986, Transmat was one of the original wave of Detroit techno labels alongside Juan Atkins' Metroplex and Kevin Saunderson's KMS imprint. Although KMS has been releasing music quite consistently over the past few years and Metroplex returned to life last year with a collaboration between Juan Atkins and Mark Ernestus, Transmat has been dormant for a few years now, with Greg Gow's Twilight Soul EP in 2011 being the label's last release. Sahraoui's Eternal Life EP Part 1 is the start of a new chapter in the Transmat story devoted to "multiplying emerging artists' productions," done with classic artwork recalling Transmat's early days, with each record delivering "modern interpretations of Transmat's distinctive sounds." The two tracks from the French producer live up to such billing and then some, with "Stella" filled with star gazing Utopian bliss.
