Art Of Survival
Growing up in Berlin immersed within underground subculture, Chontane started playing regularly at the early age of nineteen kicking things off with a residency at the Krach nights in Humboldthain and then playing some of the cities most revered clubs, including: Treasor, :// About Blank and OHM.
With his first record release in 2018 still receiving praise and support, Chontane has wasted no time in reaffirming his capabilities. With another successful collaborative release on Magic Power with WERK co-founder J.Manuel and a 4 track EP on the Special Projects sub-label of Radio Slave’s Rekids imprint. The young producer is constantly blurring the lines between techno, breaks and electro in the capital; breaking down some of the perceived barriers that were once there.
Now Chontane brings his colourful and energetic brand of blurred techno to Lobster Theremin’s White series with four hedonistic and mind-altering weapons. First up is ‘invisible Guest’ where driving and primal percussion meet a kaleidoscope of colour; a menacing track that’s perfectly balanced by soft edges and restoring pads. ‘Tarpene’ shows a different side of Chontane’s productions altogether, a UK inspired cut of techno-stamped breaks that’s both emotive and functional.
Then comes ‘Flux’ a sweat-inducing hypnotic roller that taps into our addictive qualities. Seductive chords mesh with galloping percussion in a trippy peak-time ride through the club’s dark corridors. The record comes to a close with ‘Art Of Survival’, the Berlin based producer embraces his techno roots, with an added sense of largeness and fun.
