[En] ITW with Shifted (mote-evolver / syndrome z / avian)

May 17th, 2011 by Pierre-Nicolas Mader

Shifted is an anonymous project from an artist who has been involved into the UK electronic scene (but not really related to techno) during the past few years. Since January 2011, the busy boy has released nothing less than three eps and a remix on Mote-Evolver, Szare’s Syndrome Z… and on his own imprint Avian. Close to the berghain-techno genre (Sandwell District, Stroboscopic Artefacts, Frozen Border…), Shifted doesn’t claim to be original, but does the job in a pretty good and proper way. Check out more about him here : Read the rest of this entry »

[En] Tactile Soul [bptchk! 008] + Interview

January 30th, 2009 by Pierre-Nicolas Mader

Tactile Soul

After a long time of very little inspiration, I believe that there is some great records being made at the moment, a lot of them are reminiscent of old detroit techno, which is the style that first caught my attention a long time ago. I think it is a very healthy time for techno production, so buying records is getting easier again.

[En] Interview : Arne Weinberg

September 30th, 2008 by Pierre-Nicolas Mader

arne weinberg interview

Arne Weinberg is that kind of artists who prefer developing their own melodic retro-techno sound, rather than following any trends. Since 2001, he has released his music on labels like Styrax, Matrix, Echocord Colour, Down Low Music, and AW, his own label. Here, he explains the philosophy of his music, why he decided to move from Germany to Glasgow, and if one day, neo-detroit techno could become the next hype. Read the rest of this entry »
