recondite has announced his fifth album, daemmerlicht , on his own plangent records. translated as -fading light,- the new album finds the bavarian musician exploring novel territory, combining his love of instrumental hip hop and downbeat with ambient and classical music. the result is recondite s most focused, meditative work yet. from the haunting soundscapes of -lichtung,- to the cinematic beauty of closing track -immer da,- the album demonstrates a new level of sophistication to lorenz brunner s venerated catalogue of work. making conscious use of atmosphere and space, the album ultimately harkens to brunner s unique upbringing in lower bavaria.
plangent records is happy to host the limited vinyl edition of pantha du prince his the triad remixes. including remixes by efdemin, shinedoe, alva noto, solomun, recondite, ambarchi and sprenger, john roberts.
since day one, alex.do accompanied the evolution of plangent records. he gave his opinion and feedback on the first tracks and was actually living in the same flat as recondite when the label was founded back in 2010. it feels only natural that alex is nailing the plangent mood with excellence on his first appearance on the label by delivering 4 sensitive, gentle, deep and mysterious tracks.
these songs were made over the past 2 and a half years by uchi: luna (january 2016), was named after a talking cat. it s kind of a sad story. you will find some synth sounds, three different kick drums, and a couple hi-hats. it s kind of moody. you can take it as it is, or not. pride is poison (july 2014) ironically, it s titled after experiencing dosages of unhealthy relationships, though it might be the one people like the most. it s sad-ish, noisy, bouncie, and bassie? that about sums it up. inc (february 2016) is titled after the international noise conference, where it was recorded. actually it s a 3 part spliced zoom room recording of a 25min long improvisation, made in a punk bar. the argument here holds, is it really worth it to make perfect music? where is the concept of -live- in techno anyways? it doesn t matter. it s just a semi-distorted recording of a moment that meant nothing to almost no one, and yet it lives.
plangent records is back with the first various artists compilation (plancomp001) on the label and gathers long time friends, likeminded musicians and new talent on this 10 track release. this platform for deep, low-key, melancholic electronic music shall continue.
a new plangent release is always a pleasure. recondite rapidly established his name with his first 2 releases on his own label, initially been pressed up in a small run of handful white labels, but picked up by the clone guys and since then each release is being pressed in small +-300 copies editions. small intimate techno music bridging the gap between the gentle late 90s early 00s electronica and deeper german techno from labels such as smallville, dial and giegling (and sometimes even linking to some brittish bass music). seductive tracks that slowly build up and make time go by in the most gentle and pleasant way!
the three tracker gets off with a lovely post basic channel, dub techno interpretation of a techno track for the warmer days. the b side does a great job in fusing soft beats and low key melodies with raw structure,drive and pressure. plangent records slowly becomes the face for the otherside of berlin techno together with a label such as giegling. gritty deep techno, with some influences from dubstep here and there... slowly moving away from the much abused detroit reference. definitely worth the listen!
new label that was was recommended to us by hotflush label owner paul rose who knew recondite from a local berlin hangout. we immediatly liked it because this is clearly done for the love of the music. pressed in a ultra limited 200 copies run (of which a first batch have been given away already to friends of the label owner) we managed to get the remaining copies for you. four tracks of deep techno that is a collection of snapshots of recondites daily live. somehow melancholic, adventurous and lush tracks that also can be found in the productions of labels such as dial. dont sleep on this one!!
