Press Info:
The Stone Techno Series returns with another exciting compilation. This time alongside a new festival that celebrates forward thinking artists from 9th to 10th of July at Europe’s biggest coal mine complex under the UNESCO World Heritage Zollverein. The project is exceptional at its core, bringing back excitement and inventiveness to the genre.

The project functions as a multidisciplinary ever-evolving experiment that brings different aspects together. Sampling, creating and releasing music made out of million years old inorganic materials which shaped and defined the Ruhr Area like nothing else. “Auf Kohle geboren – born on coal” stands for this region and the so-called „German Wirtschaftswunder“.

The Stone Techno project wants to embrace the history of “the Ruhrpott” while looking into the future as well. Techno Music stands for upheaval and modernity, while coal is the symbol of the Ruhr Area. This unique project will lend audibility to the ongoing process of transformation in the cultural and natural history of this region. Science and museums crossing paths with contemporary electronic music culture.

The Stone Techno project is not shy of its obvious significance. World-famous Ruhr Museum and The Third Room collective mark a first of its kind of long-lasting collaborations between a techno brand and a cultural institution.

This time the project is conceptually going one step further: Before the final backfilling of the mine at Zeche Zollverein, the acoustic atmosphere of this significant piece of global mining history was recorded 1000 metres underground, not only as an irreplaceable acoustic document, but also as preparation for a new extraordinary sample library.

A luminary of the electronic music scene has taken on this mammoth task, the British artist Matthew Herbert, this summer Matthew has sampled rocks and coal seams from the UNESCO World Heritage Zollverein to create a new sample library for STONE TECHNO from the soundscape of the underground world. The finite raw material provides the basis for new creative endeavours coming from previously featured producers alongside new ones.

This year‘s artists feature New Sample Library recorded and processed by Matthew Herbert and varied new takes on the rich sample library from Adiel, Ben Sims, D. Dan, James Ruskin, Julia Govor, Kink, Lady Starlight, Lokier, Luke Slater, Megan Leber, Out Of Place Artefacts, Perc, Setaoc Mass, Sterac and Tommy Four Seven together with new tracks from previously featured artists VNNN. and Ahmet Sisman in the series.

The Stone Techno Series marks the use of coal mines, its minerals as a boundless source for creative inspiration, artists displaying a vigorous return, enriching the sound and texture of a sometimes overlooked industrial force.

This year‘s Stone Techno series is out digitally 1st of July and as a special Vinyl Collectors Box in Autumn on The Third Room Label. Previous series were released in a sequence of 12″ vinyl EPs.

The vinyl collectors box (4 x 12“ / 180gr, transparent vinyl with special goodies, limited to 300 copies – more to be announced) will be out in November 2022. Pre-Orders will be directly available via The Third Room Bandcamp page. The digital download is included.

Press Info:
The Third Room’s day one Almedin Alibegovic alias VNNN. gives his debut on our imprint with a four track EP called “Give Me Some Attention”.

Sense one night at Mischanlage. A dark main theme, beginning with slower ambient-like trap beats, going into clean but cultrate techno, closing the climax with a morning sound track. Reflecting the atmosphere of a whole night of choreomania in the Ruhr Area, this EP has a deep and timeless mood in which you want to get lost for a night or even longer.

Press Info:
The ‘Tetragonal EP’ marks the fourth and final release of the Stone Techno series for this year.

Together with the Ruhr Museum foundation we were able to create a very unique concept which refers to the notable history of the Ruhr Area. The collaboration with each artist was a great pleasure and experience for us and as you might already know if you’re following this project since the first release: all of the results that reached us were impressively various and ingenious.

On the ‘Tetragonal’ EP you will find a nicely curated mixture of artists and tracks, which takes you on a mesmerizing journey. In the beginning our dear friend Dax J delivers a straightforward 6-minute banger that he’s known for. Followed by an anthemic and yet percussive piece of Hadone which reminds us of the long raving nights we all have missed so much. On the B-side Colin Benders ennobles mineralogy with a carefully composed arrangement which drives you deep into modular synthesis, while Felix Fleer takes you on a late night trip with oscillating tones and harmonies.

We hope you enjoy our last Stone Techno release for this year and don’t worry: there’s a lot more to come in 2022 with a new sample library as well. Stay tuned!

Press Info:
The Stone Techno series continues. We are presenting the third release of this beautiful collaboration alongside with the Ruhr Museum Foundation and the Orthorhombic EP marks a special occasion. You may ask yourself why? Because the whole project can be also a door opener for talented artists such as our Stone Techno Challenge winner Emil Baghino from Paris, who has delivered the best track amongst more than 170 submissions.

On the other hand, we have again some stellar artists on the bill. The four-tracker A-Side is reserved for not one but two fresh Berlin based duos: it starts with some tight-punching breaks by the one and only FJAAK and leads into the second track, a driven techno tool by Inhalt der Nacht & Tham, which definitely deserves the term “post-industrial machine music”. On the B-Side the techno train stays on the rail with deep hypnotic vibes by Jamaica Suk and last but not least, a real-effective dance floor banger by Emil Baghino. We hope you enjoy the tracks and be ready for the fourth and last release of the Stone Techno Series for this year.

Press Info:
Seamless to our first release of the Stone Techno series we are presenting the second edition of this unique concept. Each artist has been given a sample library consisting of recorded minerals from the Ruhr Area. The task was pretty clear, to create a track exclusively out of those sounds. The results are remarkably differing from each other and showing the huge creative potential of this project, which is a collaboration between the world-famous Ruhr Museum foundation and The Third Room collective.

While Matrixxman delivers us an ambient driven masterpiece, RØDHÅD shows us his impeccable skills to create an ever-evolving tension in his dub techno influenced approach. Yan Cook on the B-Side is exploring the full potential of those samples to honor the industrial era and its machines, while T3R-Resident VNNN. is hailing with his hypnotic grooves the late hours of an extensive musical journey.

We hope you enjoy this imposing line-up of artists and its different styles within the release. There is more to be coming. Stay tuned!

Each release is limited to 300 copies (180gr marbled 12” Vinyl, Full Cover Print).
