fresh from the success of their ‘past / present / future’ release, we march on, with berlin-based italian christopher ledger the man responsible for their label’s 41st release. the ‘percezione and retrospettiva’ ep sees ledger in flying form, as he props up with two dexterous, thoughtfully executed records that speak volume of his ability to craft atmospheric sounds. opening up the release is the sounds of ‘retrospettiva 2’, a future leaning techno jam that again wonderfully fits the brouqade aesthetic. clearly indebted to sci-fi spheres, this one is very much cut from a detroit cloth, with a steely finesse that lurks from the get go. a track that brings the listener on an endless journey, it comes some deep harmonic vibes. all things told, this is an ep of various contrasting sounds, ledger’s debut for brouqade is a stunning example of what can happen when producers think outside the box. the b side consists of ‘percezione attiva’. harmonic, blissful tones abound throughout, made all the more meaningful by a slew of gentle, melancholic piano chords that really pull on the heartstrings. a light and hazy experimental piece, the track forces parallels with other masters of suspense. culminating with a more traditional 4/4 vibe, this unusual turn only enhances the producer’s standing as a man willing to take risks.
mayak starts 2017 year with another bright newcomer - christopher ledger. his intelligent approach to music production and love to deep grooves is greatly shown on a-side, including original track and an ambient beatless version. on b-side we invite already beloved teluric, who makes a proper prime-time remix.
berlin-based roundqubemusik welcomes cristopher ledger (the code studio, berlin) with seventh orphism ep which includes three original tracks plus a remix from gabriele carasco & francesco passantino. judging by the vastly different set of sounds used here, from the elegance of the piano to the hypnotism and abstractism of the synths mostly due to experiments with modular synthesis. seventh orphism is an ep which marks out ledger as a very good artist to watch out for.
on the limited series, ada kaleh welcomes aboard the berlin based and amazingly talented christopher ledger, taking over on the a side with two buchla inspired minimalistic monsters. on the b side we have the frankfurt based duo marc philipp and nils weimann with a superb atmospheric track, closing the release in style.
