Where Ekman appears, a scorched trail is left in his wake. Hailing from the Netherlands with a love for the reputed 90s Dutch sound, he has been an integral part of the electro resurgence witnessed during the past couple of years.
His productions build on enormous, gritty and distorted basslines with ventures into deranged acid passages and Bunker-style techno stomp. It’s clear Ekman is no unimaginative copyist and he’s bored with beauty and perfection – “Every creation starts with destruction” is his self-proclaimed motto, as he continues to deliver weaponry on some of techno’s most feared labels: Panzerkreuz, Berceuse Heroique, The Trilogy Tapes and more.
Get ready for your bones to rattle when Ekman enters the concrete surroundings of FAF.
