Recondite Hinterland

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on September 12, 2013 by E.N.

hinterlandA year on from his acclaimed excursions with the 303 for Acid Test, Recondite arrives on Ghostly International for a full-length album of startling maturity. Set for release on November 11th, it shows the artist looking towards his homeland of Lower Bavaria for inspiration, seeking to capture “the area’s mentality and natural environment” within the 10-track LP.

Utilising local field recordings taken during a number of stints in the German region, he depicts the “emotions of the four seasons” and “characteristics of people’s minds” throughout the record, an approach that finds him exploring the celestial angles of a sound that has been developed throughout a recording career still shy of half a decade.

That said the Berlin-based producer has already amassed a covetable discography, with releases on the likes of Hotflush, Dystopian and his own Plangent Records imprint garnering him a formidable reputation amongst the most discerning of music lovers, and seeing his tracks being championed by everyone from Dixon to Marcel Dettmann.
Never one to rest on his laurels, his debut for Ghostly International finds him at his most arresting, exhibiting a refined palette that masterfully adheres to the concept he’s devised for himself. Notably coherent, the harrowing timbres of ‘Floe’, punishing weight of ‘Stems’ and rousing motifs of the Pitchfork premiered ‘Abscondence’ display the full breadth of his imagination, earning himself a distinct place on the established roster whilst chronicling what looks to have been a remarkably personal journey.

Marcel Dettmann “Linux / Ellipse” (50WEAPONS025) Out on Jan 11, 2013(Preview)

Planetary Assault Systems- Function 4 (Remixes Episode 2 )

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 25, 2012 by E.N.

Mote030 is the second remix package to reinterpret Planetary Assault Systems’ seminal record ‘Function 4’. Originally released on the influential Peacefrog label in 2000, Luke Slater now hosts ‘Function 4’ on his Mote-Evolver imprint and invites three of the finest minds in electronic music to tease the original apart and reconfigure it anew: Lucy, Marcel Dettmann and Shifted.

Lucy opens the record with a structural re-imagination of ‘Function 4’ where the beats become broken and the layers dense. Amid hisses and snarls Lucy skilfully reweights the elements and splinters the vocal, giving rise to a stunning, hypnotic atmosphere.

Marcel Dettmann, who appeared on the first episode of the remix package, is back with a new agenda. His ‘Base Dub Remix’ revels in swung beats, taking the material and submerging it into a space that is deep and aqueous, with euphoric results.

In Shifted’s hands ‘Function 4’ becomes galvanised. Shifted takes it hard, ratcheting the pace up-a-gear and accelerating into industrial terrain. Persistent and pernicious, this track sounds less like it was made by human hands and more like the product of a complex industrial process.

The record closes with Lucy once again rethinking ‘Function 4’. He mines the twisted beats of the original and moves them into hybrid dub territory. And in spite of the pounding bass line, the track manages to reach out into the realms of ecstatic ambience.

This package sees Lucy, Marcel Dettmann and Shifted highlighting the disparate facets of ‘Function 4’. The EP contains industrial, broken beat, dub and ambient elements; a multiplicity of ideas to move not just the body but also to provoke the mind.

Marcel Fengler -Berghain 05

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 30, 2011 by E.N.

Berghain’s Marcel Fengler presents the fifth installment in the club’s expanding mix series. A central resident at the club since its early days, Fengler continually and consistently fires up the Berghain floor with his vast and exemplary collection of techno, house and electronica.

Opening with the eerie echoes of Emika’s ‘Count Backwards’ – treated by Marcel Dettmann - we quickly discover the first exclusive gem of the mix as Peter Van Hoesen’s incredible ‘Axis Mundi’ sets the tone from here on in: full, lively and not short on drama.Pushing into darker zones, Regis’ typically haunting mix of Tommy Four Seven’s ‘G’, or Luke Slater’s L.B Dub Corp mix of Fengler’s own ‘Thwack’ segue with more classic cuts from Secret Cinema’s ‘Timeless Altitude (Minneapolis Mix)’ and Ratio’s ‘Doublefeature’. Fengler keeps the surprise element alive while maintaining tension and pressure throughout. Gerd’s tripping ‘Time and Space (Duplex Southside Mix)’ mixes wonderfully with UK bass veteran Seiji’s ‘More of You’ in a glorious mid point throw- down. The mighty Claude Young teams up with production partner Takasi Nakajima on ‘Think Twice’, which then swells to pick up the tension in a beautiful piano-led hypnotising moment.

With the focus on more current developments in more edgy techno and house, combined with a hearty nod to the past, the mix continues with newcomers like Puresque showing promise, alongside a weighty new Ben Sims track, and the pounding filtered glory of Vril’s ‘UV’ – another exclusive for the mix. Marcel includes a new track that heads straight for the floor with ‘Sphinx’, while men of the moment Skudge put forward ‘Man On Wire’. The slow burning house of Reagenz’ ‘The Labyrinth’ leads us into a psychedelic game of funk, dub and abstraction as the mix winds down.Before drawing to a close with Convextion aka E.R.P’s stunning ‘Vapor Pressure’, we’re treated to a UK house classic by 20:20 Vision’s ‘Future Remembrance (Livestyle Mix)’, in all its analog glory.

In Berghain 05, Marcel Fengler has proved filling floors doesn’t have to be about ticking boxes. This mix is a perfect example of the type of dexterity, sensitivity and scope he possesses as a DJ.
