terence fixmer his known in the late 90s , early 2000s as the creator of the tbm, described as techno body music. a mixture of the ebm soundscape with the modernity of techno. his muscle machine album (including tracks lile electrostatic, body pressure) released in 2001 became a reference of the genre. in 2003, musician terence fixmer and legendary singer from cultissism band nitzer ebb, douglas j mccarthy embarked on a project that spearheaded the fusion of techno and ebm. they named it fixmer/mccarthy and they were the precursor to a new breed of techno artists that manage to traverse between an array of scene specific genres without being tied to any. since releasing their first album, >between the devil<, in 2003 terence and douglas have ridden the line between pure techno and the recognizable song structure of classic electronic music and ebm. now, with over 13 years working together for this project and playing around the world, they return to their signature raw sound and delivery. >so many lies< is quintessential and brooding techno, while the instinct mix epitomizes their ability to craft a catchy bubbling baseline whilst all the while dispatching cold steel aggression.

welcome to alexey s soundscape.
title track -dust- launches the ep into an immediately throbbing groove, rung through with the dissonant clangs of the genre s cold, machine-obsessed heritage. this hydraulic homage is succeeded by -overshadow- —a closer inspection of techno s cogs and wheels that sees volkov tinkering with its parts over 9 minutes of cumulative atmospherics. endless—the new collaboration between alistair wells aka perc and giorgio gili, based on speedy j s electric deluxe label—offers a hypnotic remix from their pooled influences of brian eno, byetone, robert henke, irdial and ifach. here volkov s dark and growling slow-burner is stepped up into an octane workout, dressed with gili s minimalistic traits and seasoned with a spot of perc-style abrasiveness. -corner- is dust ep s provocative closer. driven by anxious, incessant hats and syncopated hisses it uses suspended melodic morsels to work itself into a beguiling anti-climax that leaves you begging for more.
