Press Info:
Nicolas Bougaïeff and Marcus C. Maichel deliver Projections, a three track techno collaboration EP on Denkfabrik.

Projections brings together crystalline production aesthetics and unusually slow BPMs. The titles allude to impossible geometries as a metaphor for impossible relations, an imaginary world where parallels meet and orthogonal planes of reality interact.

Opening track ‘Orthogonal’ contrasts carefully distorted bass and breakdowns where processed orchestral brass outline tense yet otherworldly harmonies. Precisely phasing synth loops create an evolving hypnotic structure in ‘Oblique’, while ‘Parallel’ showcases a gentle thunder of filtered orchestra samples emerging from subterranean grooves.

Marcus C. Maichel is a Hamburg based producer who has been a central figure of the global trance scene since the mid-90s. His projects X-Dream and The Delta, the latter often in collaboration with Arne Schaffhausen and Wayan Raabe of Extrawelt, are notable for pioneering a surgically precise, atmospheric and oft-imitated tech-trance sound.

Nicolas Bougaïeff is a Canadian producer based in Berlin. His Cognitive Resonance 12″ marked the relaunch of legendary British label NovaMute. Bougaïeff completed a PhD on minimal techno. Recent projects include an audio-visual collaboration with Itaru Yasuda performed live at Fabric London.
