Post Scriptum Delivers Detailed And Very Well Produced Sci-fi Techno Tracks
nfrastructure founder Function has mixed 'Berghain 07', the latest in the series of DJ mixes by the Berlin club's residents, due for release May 18th. Accompanying the mix are two 12''s, where Post Scriptum's 'Human Timescales' features alongside tracks from Cassegrain & Tin Man, Inland, DVS1, Steve Bicknell, Blue Hour and Luke Slater's L.B. Dub Corp alias. The in-depth A&R process Function went through for the Berghain 07 project led to the signing of the development of this LP. The debut live show from Post Scriptum will be at Berghain during the '07' release party in May. Post Scriptum stands for rich, highly detailed modern Techno Electronics. References to Mills-School bleep and unearthly, sci-fi tones are clear to hear. The album features original photographs by Swiss mixed-media artist Julian Charrière, taken on site at a former Soviet nuclear testing ground. The negatives were first exposed through the camera, and then laid on the radioactive earth where interference occurred, resulting in the highly textured end images.
Parallels to the process can be drawn throughout 'Post Scriptum 01', where classic Techno sound sources are clear to hear, however complex processing and a very original approach to arrangement flavours and colours each track. With titles like 'Interstellar Medium', 'Decelerate At The Destination' or 'The Extreme Distance', clear Space - Time themes emerge, evoking imagery of the ongoing Human quest for survival, on this world, and eventually others. The vinyl version of Post Scriptum 01 is structured with DJs in mind 8, with club-leaning tracks spanning 4 sides. On the CD version a further 3 titles can be found, with the tracklist arranged as Post Scriptum originally intended for listening in one session.
