Delsin is pleased to welcome a true pillar of the contemporary techno scene, Answer Code Request, for his first EP in six years.
As an integral part of the Ostgut Ton family since breaking through some 10 years ago, Patrick Gräser has shaped a patient but potentdiscography which embodies the hybridised nature of techno in the 21st Century. His distinctive style of melodically embellished, subtly fracturedbody music helps define the contemporary zeitgeist, but it also moves with enough emotional maturity to stand on its own terms as compelling,artist-led electronic music.
Arriving some four years after his second LP Gens, the Shattering EP opens in an especially exploratory mode as Gräser teases elements ofbreakbeat and ambient techno on the spellbinding ‘Resonate’. ‘Shattering’ finds a different palette through which to explore broken rhythms,leaning in on a heavyweight bassline injected with rave-wired distortion. There are more linear techno pulses to be found in the tunnellingpropulsion of ‘CRS-21’, but in the interests of contrast the EP closes with the sparkling refraction of ‘Sustaining Life’, a floor-ready masterclass inelectronica with teeth.
