cologne based producers and dj s stikdorn and mk braun team up for the second installment of their henk label. they created 4 tracks full of analogue hardware vibes ready for the dancefloor. the a1 (platform) is a breakbeat tribute with a haunting melody and some twisted turns. a2 (reval) is a straight looping techno stomper that could go on forever. b1 (atm) takes the floor apart with sharp and crispy noise and acid sounds on a heavy bass drum. b2 (loose it) slows things down bpm-wise but is surely also one to open or close a night in style.
itís the idea of capturing a moment on vinyl that created the first release of ďhenkĒ. after countless hours of twitching the knobs on their machines the djís and producers stikdorn and mk braun created a string of tracks that will now see the light of day on their collaborative label. on the a1 a solo track by stikdorn takes you into darker spheres with an acid line and mystic strings/vocals. the a2 is an acidic banger ready to damage some dance floors seriously. on the b-side things get slower and quirkier. b1 is a bit broken and features a trippy acid line to guide you through lots of different drum patterns. b2 is a melancholic ride going seriously deep and mellow. the perfect closing track!
