recondite has announced his fifth album, daemmerlicht , on his own plangent records. translated as -fading light,- the new album finds the bavarian musician exploring novel territory, combining his love of instrumental hip hop and downbeat with ambient and classical music. the result is recondite s most focused, meditative work yet. from the haunting soundscapes of -lichtung,- to the cinematic beauty of closing track -immer da,- the album demonstrates a new level of sophistication to lorenz brunner s venerated catalogue of work. making conscious use of atmosphere and space, the album ultimately harkens to brunner s unique upbringing in lower bavaria.

recondite returns to hotflush with two unique techno narratives forged in his inimitable style. since 2014s smash, caldera, the prolific producer has released two studio albums, as well as a string of notable eps for the likes of innervisions, dystopian and life & death. at once subtle and grand, phalanx/warg sees recondite exploring the full range of his distinctive voice. deep, sinewy techno set with a genuine sense of intrigue, both cuts flood the dance floor with an unsettling warmth.
after spending the past three years cutting acclaimed records for such esteemed imprints as innervisions, hotflush, and acid test, recondite has rejoined the ghostly international fold with an ep that builds on the robust field recordings and pale, moonlit melodies of the berlin producer’s breakthrough lp “hinterland”.
re-issue of a ltd aussie techno/house 12- from 1997. in 1997 tim jackiw emerged on the scene with his very first release on the short-lived aussie imprint, offworld records. the release was limited to 500 copies and went virtually unnoticed. a few music journalists at the time of the release dubbed it as one of the greatest electronic records to come out of australia. the a-side begins with a long deep technosoul journey. the b-side continues with more recombinant classic detroit and chicago sounds of the golden era. recondite is proud to re-issue this long lost introduction to tims music with new sounds to come in the near future!
recondites debut on the dystopian label. four tracks feature the whole range of creativeness from this extraordinary producer. or as the groove-magazine puts it into words: from borderline-idm (liberia) to trance-not-trance (cleric), industrial-beat (ec10) and john-carpenter-house (equilibrium) - it has it all. the many shades of techno!
recondite marks his return to hotflush with the epic, potentially summer-defining *caldera* and a sequel to his 2012 hit *drgn*. the bavarian artist has undergone a dazzling rise since that time, and one which is reflected in the increasing opulence of his music.

following up his recently-released remixes of scubas single >the hope< on hotflush, plagent records boss recondite returns to the label, this time with a solo 12 inch titled drgn / wist 365. recalling some of the moodiest moments from >on acid<, his recent lp devoted to the sounds of the 303, this debut shows recondite stay true to his sombre and tension-inducing roots. >drgn<, the sonic equivalent to traversing a bleak end-of-times landscape, is a journey replete with a relentless, melodic sib-bass and vibrating synth, on the flip recondite gives the 9-minute long >wist 365< a drum workout, resulting in a progressive, menacing groove, awash with wind chimes and 808 claps.
for many great artists, going back is the way to move forward. with this in mind, berlin-based producer recondite looked to his homeland of lower bavaria for his debut ghostly international release, hinterland. *i tried to capture the areas mentality and natural environment within the album,* he explains. *particularly the moods that behold the emotions of the four seasons, which differ a lot in this region.* in fact, most of the field recordings featured in this 10-track lp were taken in his recent visits to the free state in southeastern germany.

following his recent roland tb-303 experiments for absurd and his understated reworking of scubas the hope, berlins recondite has put together the debut release on boutique-label trolldans, based in the city of kontra-musik.
making a techno shift, midnight shifts third release sees recondite on his upward trajectory pair up with the relatively reserved julien h mulder. both outputs possess a stripped down aesthetic, but while the former shows up straight up and shiny, the latter introduces lightness and play. a tightly packed, hardworking 4-track ep that will serve the many moods of a dj well.
the nice plangent label comes with catalogue number 4. recondite delivers some lush tracks that fuse laidback beats and low key melodies with raw structures, a persistent drive and pressure. plangent records slowly becomes the face for the otherside of berlin techno together with a label such as giegling. lovely release!! dont sleep!
following the release of his highly acclaimed debut album, on acid, earlier this year, berlin artist, recondite, steps in to provide two deep and dark remixes of scubas >the hope< for the next hotflush single.
a new plangent release is always a pleasure. recondite rapidly established his name with his first 2 releases on his own label, initially been pressed up in a small run of handful white labels, but picked up by the clone guys and since then each release is being pressed in small +-300 copies editions. small intimate techno music bridging the gap between the gentle late 90s early 00s electronica and deeper german techno from labels such as smallville, dial and giegling (and sometimes even linking to some brittish bass music). seductive tracks that slowly build up and make time go by in the most gentle and pleasant way!
the three tracker gets off with a lovely post basic channel, dub techno interpretation of a techno track for the warmer days. the b side does a great job in fusing soft beats and low key melodies with raw structure,drive and pressure. plangent records slowly becomes the face for the otherside of berlin techno together with a label such as giegling. gritty deep techno, with some influences from dubstep here and there... slowly moving away from the much abused detroit reference. definitely worth the listen!
new label that was was recommended to us by hotflush label owner paul rose who knew recondite from a local berlin hangout. we immediatly liked it because this is clearly done for the love of the music. pressed in a ultra limited 200 copies run (of which a first batch have been given away already to friends of the label owner) we managed to get the remaining copies for you. four tracks of deep techno that is a collection of snapshots of recondites daily live. somehow melancholic, adventurous and lush tracks that also can be found in the productions of labels such as dial. dont sleep on this one!!

when recondite, aka lorenz brunner, emerged with his debut lp for acid test (2012s on acid), we were still learning about the german producers inward-looking dance floor sound. a few years later, his sinewy jams have proved near universal -- like an underground zelig, hes fit perfectly everywhere from rødhåds dystopian to ghostly international and innervisions. acid test also allows recondite the chance to indulge his more outré tendencies and a welcomed return it is.
while the record can be enjoyed in one long listen, there are going to be different tracks that speak to individual listeners. clouded is one of the stronger arrangements, taking the sonic sweeps often heard from marcel dettmann or function and filling the surrounding space with dreamy samples and warm bass. stems is playful and fluid, and the records opener, rise is an eerie and melodic tinkering intro. as a whole, the release of hinterland on ghostly international is a perfect marriage the label has always had an affinity for music with depth and frequencies that can magnetize a wide variety of listeners
