it s been around three years since jpattersson opened up a whole new horizon of formerly unheard possibilities between the worlds of dub and techno. a lot has been happening ever since. and that’s very noticeable on his second album. it still has all the signature elements of jpattersson: there s his dreamy. virtuous trumpet play and his witty vocals. there s his dubby delays and heavyweight beats which often line up in a downbeat rhythm. however. besides his fanfares there s now also many folks. many musical friends who contribute to the vibe of this album. there s a track with berlin mc longfingah. latin-flavoured rhythms from polish reggae and dancehall producer dreadsquad as well as a stylistically wide range of remixes that reflect the symbiotic cooperation and mutual inspiration of these last years.

extraordinary pieces of music have long stood in direct correlation to the physical surroundings that inspire them. when oliver koletzki and niko schwind packed up their berlin studios last april to spend a month locked away in a cottage nestled in the stunning nature of cape towns noordhoek area before heading to afrikaburn. little did they know that its long beaches. dramatic mountain views and the heritage of its indigenous people would have such a profound effect on the club-ready sound they had championed with a string of eps and live-performances since 2015. the result of four weeks of geo-cultural stimuli and creative experimentation culminated in the album noordhoek. released in may 2018 on stil vor talent. while the productions on noordhoek display the same on-point sound design of previous oliver koletzki and niko schwind releases. the impressive emotional depth and electronic floor-focus of its twelve tracks effortlessly merge with complex rhythmic textures to form a contemporary narrative on ancient dance rituals. after a roller coaster ride through twelve versatile yet coherent productions. one thing is certain as the ultimate crack of thunder crashes down on noordhoek: south africa fuelled the creative energy of two remarkable musicians. who where able to translate the abundance of their impressions into a truly original world of sound.

with »redsuperstructure«. robert lippok created a new foundation for his musical endeavors. now – 7 years later – this system properly comes to life on »applied autonomy«. the title of the new album is a clear indicator as to what the berlin-based producer has been up to during the last couple of years. both on a conceptual level as well as how he molds his ideas into tracks. »applied autonomy« orchestrates a certain state of frantic standstill. which occurs once a structure is set. has this state been reached. the artist is free to focus on other equally important aspects. balancing the various shades. pushing ideas even further to really make them shine and blossom in their self-declared autonomy. the more light one lets in. the more layers become visible. layers are key when it comes to understanding »applied autonomy«. big chunks of the material with which the album has been produced derive from sketches specifically made for a club performance. rather than meticulously devising each and every detail. lippok focussed instead on recording as many fragments as possible in a short period of time. elements which he could later combine and layer on stage. based on this material and his experience experimenting with it in a live environment. the album slowly began to shape. an album culminating in a collaboration with klara lewis. with whom lippok spent 2 days at the ems studios in stockholm. approaching the idea of autonomy from yet another angle. during the session. both musicians played and performed simultaneously. yet not explicitly together. lost in their own thoughts and ideas. only subconsciously taking in what the other one was coming up with. the result is »samtal«. 14 minutes of a constantly evolving state of poise. magically connecting all the dots lippok had already defined as »applied autonomy«. the artwork for »applied autonomy« has been created by the berlin-based argentinian artist luca gutierrez. over the last couple of years. he has made a name for himself with his spectacular av performances.

singularity beginnt und endet im kern seiner dinge auf der gleichen note: der emotionalen ehrlichkeit. hopkins. beeinflusst von jahrelangen erfahrungen mit meditation und transzendenz. bewegt sich durch ein selbstgeschaffenes universum. das sich unaufhaltsam ausdehnt und zum schluss wieder zu einem unendlich kleinen punkt zusammen zieht. nahtlos geht es dabei von rauem techno hin zu choralen melodien. und von solo-piano etappen über zu psychedelischem ambient. wo immunity sich in die dunkle realität einer epischen club nacht stürzte. erkundet singularity nun die dissonanzen zwischen dem urbanen leben und der grünen natur. was beide alben verbindet. sind ihre unmessbar breiten musikalischen sound-paletten. so steht auf singularity die erkundung der verbindungen zwischen geist. klang und umwelt im vordergrund und vertont so die verschiedenen geistigen zustände. in denen hopkins sich während des schreib- und aufnahmeprozesses befand. und so viel sei schon verraten. durch die ernüchternden erfahrungen. die hopkins mit dem blick auf die heutige welt machte. blieb ihm die letztgültige schlussfolgerung. dass ein wahres gefühl von frieden und zugehörigkeit nur aus der einzigartigkeit der natur gewonnen werden kann.
