tm404 & echologist (aka andreas tilliander and brendon moeller) return with their second collaboration, this time including a remix from another standout dub techno artist in vril. the infiltrated ep has two boomy, 4x4 rollers on the a-side, vrils broken-beat, ethereal version on the b1 and lastly the title-track, a twisted stream of grainy modulations.
(2x12inch lp, 140g vinyl) max durantes first lp in a 30 year career, the experiment, is a new, left field direction for an artist whose history traces from the birth of techno, through idm, industrial and electro. spread over four sides of vinyl, the experimentconsists of beatless pieces (which reveal another character when slowed to 33rpm), broken-beat techno and straight-up dancefloor trips.
two of the leading artists in dub techno and ambient electronics produced four cuts between their extensive studios in new york and stockholm, with the results sitting in between the powerful oscillations of echologists previous ep for kynant (kyn005) and the slo-mo, roland jams tm404 specialises in.
(180gr) melbourne-based vohkinne joins kynant with the ‘wind shadows ep. its title track is a grinding techno trip with stop-start drums to switch up the rhythm in a room. the two b-side cuts are straighter dancefloor fare.
(180gr, ltd to 275 copies) black sand is a new collaboration combining techno sounds old and new. the duo consists of max durante and fellow-italian, dj datch. their ‘desert island ep is heavy on drum machines and classic styling but produced with modern design.
incl donato dozzy remix, 180gr vinyl, 275 copies made. kynant records looks first to a techno veteran in max durante. his first offering on kynant is black light, a four-track ep of deep and physical, avant-garde techno.
