dehnert has continued to steer his fachwerk label through the techno undergrowth and it has now amassed more than 25 releases in all. at the heart of the labels output has been dehnerts own increasingly experimental techno and this new album is testament to the producers continued exploration of the form. where framework was, in the words of mike himself, focussed on the heavy techno form, this album explores broken bass, swinging house and beatless electronic experimentalism amongst other things. i love to release music. i still enjoy the album writing process very much, says mike, before adding, i have noticed that sometimes the succe ss of a track depends on the light at club, which is why the album is called lichtbedingt, meaning depends on light! the album starts off with a suitably sombre intro that features cold, slowly shifting synths.

in just three years, berlin based artist dehnert has gone from unknown talent to underground hero with his very own >raw techno< sound making waves on labels like his own imprint fachwerk and now delsin, where he finds himself at home amongst the future music of talented cohorts redshape, a made up sound, delta funktionen and more. this ep is an introduction to his upcoming album framework - an uncompromising album made up of pure techno tracks of the sort youd expect to hear on the dancefloors of places like berghain or tresor. they go from pulsing and classic sounding to skipping and glitchy, through greyed-out and sandy via swinging and syncopated but always with a sense of restraint and control whether they are abstract, apocalyptic, atmospheric or whatever else. although his tracks are undeniably functional, at the same time, they are neither nondescript nor forgettable: somehow, through masterful sound designs and an accomplished knack for blending real tension and atmosphere with his obvious basic channel and berghain influences, mike dehnert manages to lock you into whatever mood takes his fancy with apparent ease.
