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.

salvation is found by identifying thesis and antithesis of a logically conceived duality as a receptive polarity which is then synthesized and expressed on a higher level. thereby practicing what is preached is the all-embracing love in the presence of the creator. the purest original state pre-dating the judgmental so called >fall of man< in unity with life itself is the principle of holiness and the root of inner peace. glory to g-d!

after more than three years of silence as a producer. efdemin a.k.a phillip sollmann returns with a striking hybrid concept that merges the album format with the -continuous dj mix- format. presenting completely new material in a seamless manner. this cd-mix. named naïf. officially reinstates his label of the same name and is a sprawling tour of inner space featuring 19 distinct tracks from fellow producers (e.g. margaret dygas. steve bicknell. jeroen search. pom pom. marco shuttle or gunnar haslam) along with an additional ten that feature efdemin himself (either as soloist or collaborator). the release condenses his decade-long dj-ing journey and evolution as a producer into a single potent elixir of contemporary techno. owing to his additional projects. such as collaborating with pan artist konrad sprenger on a modular organ system to be installed in museums. or scoring for a neue musik ensemble. the berlin-based efdemin is known as hiker between the worlds . his regular stints at berghain or panoramabar. his partnership with established labels (e.g. ostgut ton. dial. sushitech) and the leadership of his own naïf imprint all demonstrate that since more than a decade.
