Novel German Techno label KIAS hits the trail in media res with a debut EP delivered by much esteemed techno veteran FIEDEL (Berghain DJ) .This first release was aptly titled >TRANSFERENCE< in reference to the discombobulated personal journey experienced by many artists & creatives since March 2020.
FIEDEL is widely known for his long-standing DJ residency - almost two decades, at OSTGUT/BERGHAIN. He is also one half of legendary live duo MMM – MESSE DER MEISTER VON MORGEN, together with ERRORSMITH.
Be it in the DJ booth or in the studio, FIEDEL is a master of precision. His productions have been featured on such outlets as OSTGUT TON, PURE TRAX, BODY TRAX, LIBERTA or SEELEN RECORDS to name only a few.
He also runs the labels FIEDELONE, FIEDELTWO and SUPER SOUND TOOL. 'TRANSFERENCE' manages to create a highly danceable, yet slightly dystopian dance narrative, fiercely roaming through a colorful techno spectrum.
The A-Side features two variations on an intense marching theme seasonably titled 'FILMRISS' (mental blackout). Both versions are teeming with FIEDEL's best signature sounds,while also slightly reminiscent of FLOORPLAN's finest disco-techno tunes.
The 'FILMRISS' theme is an imperious summon to the feet, while the tracks on the B-Side, remindful of iconic old-school MMM hits, clearly appeal to the dancer's hips & booty. 'DIRTY DEEDS', on B1, is a feel-good, groovy tune, whereas B2 'INCHEON' slowly progresses into trippy tribal vibes. [info sheet from distr.]
