Press Info:
Berghain resident Marcel Fengler is one of the frontmen of raw and forward pushing techno. Judging by his previous three EPs for the label, it’s clear to see how Fengler’s work revolves around a love for tough, angular and edgy tools for the floor. This fourth offering continues the energy with three jacking, factory-forged tracks leading us further down his mysterious path.

Like a hot-headed live jam in a humid Chicago basement, ‘Rapture’ gathers up all the energy of classic house, infuses it with a pacy no-nonsense progression and then throws it into the deepend. Rumbling bass and straight, raw percussion make this a perfectly funky blend of high and low, downstairs and up.

‘RazKaz’ jumps off the platter with nervous intensity as a warbling synth scape massages itself into our consciousness. Heavy percussion underpins this tender fugue with ear-pleasing texture and grit. The track summises that special place in electronic music where unfamiliar melodic elements play on the emotions, warming and provoking thought, while driving the dance instinct ever forward.

The B side carries the deeper voyage that is ‘Enigma’. Droning, melancholic tones swirl organically under the heavy barrage of chattering drums and Fengler’s trademark fizzing hats. A moment of transience, this powerful recording allows for inner reflection while pinning us to the groove devotedly.

Info :
Heralded as one of the more interesting newcomers to the underground scene, Lucyʼs refreshing style of intuitive dub techno has found a natural home with Luke Slaterʼs Mote-Evolver label. Having come together earlier this year via Slaterʼs remix of Gmork on Lucyʼs own Stroboscopic Artefacts imprint, this EP for Mote-Evolver showcases Lucyʼs affinity with the darkly elegant and warped atmospheres.

Shrewdly crafted with the intention of creating exhilarated mayhem, “Beautiful People” is a sonic bomb with a long fuse; steadily discharging intense waves of uptight energy before exploding into life via screaming sirens and raw kick drums.

“Falling Empire” blurs the line between techno and electronica as tough, rolling beats contrast starkly against a backdrop of weaving harmonic soundscapes to create a disorientating ambiance that is simultaneously energizing and dreamlike.

“Happiness Is A Prison” is included as a digital bonus, closing out the release neatly by drawing together both functional and abstract flavors evident elsewhere on the record in a marriage of punchy rhythms, abrasive bass and off-kilter keys.

Info:
Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver label continues to enhance its enviable reputation amongst the techno ranks thanks to a consistently high quality output from acts whose musical range spans the techno genre. Recent highlights have included peak-time bombs from techno leviathans, Cari Lekebusch and Ortin Cam as well as stunning EP of ultramodern techno from Finland?s Samuli Kamppi; the deep- space-techno of and the slick stylings of Berghain tastemaker, Marcel Fengler.

Having taken a short summer break, Mote-Evolver is back with something very special. Luke Slater’s Planetary Assault Systems alias needs little introduction having been at the very heart of techno since 1993. Taken from the first ever Mote-Evolver EP, GT is remixed and reworked to bring a classic bang-up-to-date.

James Ruskin brings his classic Detroit inspired sounds into the mix; creating a meandering journey of a mix; bringing out all the futuristic, industrial robot-funk of the original, piecing together the elements into one soulful and hypnotic whole.

Function & Jerome Sydenham continue their successful production partnership to create a dark and heavy rework. With both producers styles evident in the mix the melting pot of parts comes together as deep, abrasive warehouse techno.

Fittingly, Slater gets in on the act too, providing his own P.A.S. “Drone Sector” remix; transporting the original straight out of 2006 and into 2010 with all the mesmerizing exquisiteness the original still intact.
