Vault Series 26.0
11th March 2020
vinyl & digital
After collaborating with Subjected for his debut release in 2018, Andrejko now lands on the German’s other acclaimed hard techno label, Vault Series, with a thrilling three track solo EP.
Andrejko is part of the Berlin new breed becoming renowned for his dark and uncompromising closing sets at the legendary Stattbad on Sunday mornings and has gone on to get bookings further afield as a result. Both as a DJ and producer, his stripped down, hyperdriven sound is perfectly abrasive yet comes with exactly the right amount of detail to make it irresistibly hypnotic and escapist.
Opener ‘Eating’ is bleak, futurist, Terminator techno with unrelenting drums that hit hard each and every time. Subtle rising synths add to the tension while rugged loops keep you locked to the floor.
The excellent ‘From’ is less harsh and hard but just as perfectly distilled, with warmer rubber kicks rolling forwards at a real pace as eerie synth motifs survey a dystopian urban landscape. Closer ‘Knives’ shows another side again to this innovative artist as it pairs sci-fi pads with supple techno rhythms. Taking you on a trip to the outer edges of our galaxy, it has a rising sense of tension that is utterly enthralling.
