about

We don’t question the relevance of techno in the current musical landscape, but look back ten years or so and you’ll figure things were a little stagnant and uninspiring. The techno scene in Berlin certainly did a lot to spruce new life in the genre and people like Mørbeck with his Vault Series releases were somehow pioneers of the industrial-influenced sound we now celebrate and take for granted.

Now landing on M_Rec Ltd. with a 3-track EP, the Berlin resident fuses his aggressive sound with the hypnotic, dark-room elements that have defined the label’s vision. Opener ’Pyramid’ stands on the more experimental side of techno. Unpredictable and disquieting, the groove is a journey through an uneasy and freaky landscape. The bass drum here is initially viscous, but as the track progressives it gets increasingly more interesting, craftily engineered. On top of it, it’s basically a mixture of industrial and psychedelic elements, which keep the cut rather weird (in the best way possible) until its conclusion.

Things get more ravey on the flip side, with ‘Arrival of the Stranger’ setting itself as a a stomping and forward driving track. Bass and snare drum synced together scream Berlin from the beginning, serious and hostile. The groove refines itself into an amazing big room techno killer, getting wilder and more layered thanks to a set of subtle loops and razor sharp arrangements. Closing the EP is a more druggy and crepuscular joint titled ‘Geometrix’. The groove is more fluid, with feedback and soundscapes growing on top to narrate one hell of a dark and unsettling journey.

M_Rec Ltd. starts 2015 with a nasty release: three tracks that fit any moment of a proper techno set.
