The Aarhus-based crew of producers, DJs and event-makers are certainly no strangers to electronic sounds and ravishing rhythms. Here are four of the gang’s recommendations on the line-up for PHONO15:
Despite having put out only two releases (including a very recent EP on label Where To Now), Beatrice Dillon has made a fine name for herself as an exquisite selector with mixes for Blowing Up The Workshop and a cassette, The Trilogy Tapes. A wide taste that resonates well with the range of her off-kilter and refreshingly original productions.
The last couple of years have seen quite an abundance of dark, heavy and overdriven techno being produced, and dutch producer Ekman has been one of the most consistent and interesting names of the bunch. With a dystopian theme running through his productions, his releases range from electro, techno to acid – paying proper homage to the heydays of The Hague legends, Bunker Records.
Head Front Panel
The Head Front Panel alias has been John Heckle’s pathway to experiments with the harder shapes of old-school techno. Heckle has released 10 EPs over the course of just a bit more than a year, spanning from crazy Robert Hood-like techno to more synth-based tracks.
In Aeternam Vale
Amazing industrial and cold wave sounding project all the way back from the 80s, given new life by the great Minimal Wave label.
