infinite density – the new album by the berlin based. cuban-american artist blush response – is a fantastical exploration into the depths of industrial and ebm techno in collaboration with techno frontman adam x’s infamous imprint. sonic groove. influenced by the progressive noise of autechre. front line assembly and skinny puppy the producer has previously released with aufnahme +wiedergabe and ant-zen. as well as getting his hands dirty with programming work for the industrial pioneers fear factory. rhys fulber as well as latin pop singer cristian castro. infinite destiny takes a firm grip on situationally influenced content. pulling every corner of berlin into its belly for a challenging and unique sound – a sound that’s able to maintain functionality whilst simultaneously exposing loose wires of wild flangers and disturbed sampling. these erratic waves are expressed through the productions infinite density. aum shinrikyo. survivor guilt and dead still air. showcasing the most alien meta-bodies of blush’s sound. as an appropriation on contemporary acidic sound. the sonic motions of serpentine and tryptamine delve into explorations within the acid genre. rhys fulber’s string contribution on painkiller initiates a whirlwind rhetoric of distortion. panic stricken. no solace and tessellate focus on strong industrial pads that carry the density of each track whilst infinite dread’s ebm back bone hits hard with heavy arpeggiation. crucial to its form. the album showcases new experimental sound that repurposes algorithms of today’s dancefloor dogma. blush response exposes these paradigms through mutated build-ups and drops. however. his innovative “modular synth heavy” sound design obscures the flow in a way that permeates the concrete arenas his productions are designed for – in true berlin style.

say what you wanna say. but you have to give strahil velchev this: the manÆs a powerhouse. recording and playing live under the kink alias. he went on to become one of finest purveyorÆs of funk in techno and house. what it is. by definition. ainÆt exactly clear. and that is the beauty of it. kinkÆs music is unifying in the best possible way. channeling the spirit and feeling of a time where it didnÆt really matter who the faces behind the music were. kink plays with the elements of genres and sub-genres as if the future of it all is still wide-open. at the same time it could be accused of retro-fetishism. as much as the pope himself is infallible. the pure need to recreate moments. feelings and experience - rather than carbon copies of existing designs - was what started kinkÆs production work. hailing from bulgaria. it was nearly impossible to get your hands on all the records and music that fed into a system of raves. clubs and record shops that seemed far away from sofia. and financially it might as well have meant another galaxy. wanting to dj without having access to the tracks that spun the carousel meant that you had to create them yourselves. so. here we go with a private bootlegger gone public mastermind and one of the loudest voices in house. techno and beyond. from kinkÆs early productions with neville watson to his smash-hit for ovum. a cerebral album for macro. tons of remixes & tracks and his mind-bending live act. playground seems to take all that into a blender. simultaneously a sound-summary. the harvest of a field of ideas. and the exhibition of an artist in his prime. it also works as a sort of kink dictionary: avant-garde soundscapes stand next to boisterous bangers. classic club tracks and peak time emotions

after a feature on steffi s fabric 94 mix cd (and the accompanying dolly deluxe 3 release). late night approach debuts on klakson with a hyper funky electro twelve. the two tracks on the a side both show machine music that s simultaneously human. whether it s the melancholic shards of melody buried under -clarence mews- commanding rhythmic pulsations. or the beautifully striking chords on -luvquest-. however. the b-side takes us to gloomy subterranean pastures with the uptempo banger -primo-. while a2 -kit- crosses over into broken beats but still keeps the same shadowy atmosphere.
