Lost Track 22
Rey Fur 2.1
Steve Rachmad, aka Sterac returns to Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver imprint this May to release the ‘Numbers’ EP.
Since his earliest days in the scene, Amsterdam’s Steve Rachmad has created a legion of monikers to cover his compositions’ variety and broadness. One of them being Sterac which focuses on the deeper and more obscure end of the techno genre. The Sterac discography consists of signature cuts, spread out over genre-deﬁning labels such as M-Plant, Tresor, Klockworks, Afterlife, Mote-Evolver, Indigo Aera, and Delsin.
His ‘Numbers’ EP sees Steve drop the ﬁrst release of 2021 under his Sterac alias as he makes a return to Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver label with four tunnelling techno tracks.
Kicking oﬀ the release is ‘Ghost 37’, which employs vacillating grooves, ominous synths and intricate mechanics before ‘Lost Track 22’ fuses sizzling 303s, dynamic drums and mammoth, alien-sounding modulations.
On the ﬂip, ‘Rey Fur 2.1’ keeps the energy ﬂowing with a high-impact clapper featuring bustling fx and expansive tones until ‘Tr-15’ masterfully rounds oﬀ the EP with twisting synth ﬂutters, rattling highs and hypnotic bass grooves intricately unfolding underneath.
