Animal Farm Records
26th February 2018
Berlin based Lars Huismann returns to Animal Farm Records for our second outing of the year, with his powerful ‘Exoplanet’ EP. After being introduced to his uncompromising sound on last year’s ‘Juggernaut’ we are proud to welcome Lars back into the fold with four new cuts of disciplined techno excursions.
Title track ‘Exoplanet’ explores ambient soundscapes, showing Lars’ progression as a producer – the synth tones are meditative, but industrialised drum tones craft this into a perfect set opener. ’Stratosphere’ is the record’s heaviest selection, showing Huismann’s expert ear for peak time workouts. The kicks & percussion are relentless, with a swinging, modulating synth line that lends the production just the right amount of swing.
The maschine funk of ’Stratosphere’ is flipped on its head by another AFR favourite – Italian producer Kaiser, whose addition of pensive, cleansing synths on his remix cast the track as a peak time bomb in an entirely different light.
‘Tessela’ sees Lars experiment with off-kilter textures. Atonal frequencies and cascading tones are tied together by his ever-present attention to groove, shaping this into a heady yet powerful dancefloor stepper.
