Anno Stamm is the revered 4/4 branch name of Berlin’s Lars Stoewe. As Anstam he has been at the forefront of dark beat science, touring extensively with the likes of Moderat and Thom Yorke’s Atoms For Peace and has appeared at festivals ranging from Mutek and CTM to Sonar and Dimensions. ‘Annothek’ is his second EP for Macro. The three tracks build on the same set of sound sources and offer three different views at their glowing core. Elastic basslines pierce through a bed of sweet and warm chords, surrounded by sizzling noise percussion. Definitely on the more introspective side, the three cuts offer a special emotional depth while maintaining a bit more than just enough oomph to get the action going. Late night and early morning are the possible settings. It’s a declaration of tender love that comes with a gentle push towards the closest darkroom.
