Our first premiere of the week comes from one of the most exhilarating names in techno today, Chlär. Swiss native Chlär arrives on SHDW & Obscure Shapes imprint Mutual Rytm for a six track EP, comprised of futuristic grooves and tribal narratives. We premiere ‘Spirit Enhancer’ a high octane 90’s inspired cut, which draws on dub techno and disco flavours.

Emerging as an artist of note for both now and the future, Chlär continues to craft and shape his sound as he curates his own high-octane approach to techno. Combining dynamic performances taking in three and four deck mixes with his own up front productions and his talents as a former mastering engineer, the Swiss talent has become a respected name amongst his peers. After releases on Lobster Theremin and his own Bipolar Disorder imprint, the Berlin-based DJ, producer and label boss heads to SHDW & Obscure Shape’s blooming label Mutual Rytm to deliver six precise and powerful cuts across his ‘Optimized Groove’ EP.

“As the names states, ‘Optimized grooves’ is a collection of tracks designed to match specific parts of the event/night. From ‘Night Genesis’ at the origin of the night through to tracks like ‘Maximum Performance’, a peak time bomb, and ‘Spirit Enhancer’ – an uplifting and warm production elevating
individuals to higher labels after hours of spiritual connection”

We have the pleasure of once again premiering music from our favourite new techno label, Mutual Rytm and Chlär’s release is one of the most exciting yet. Spirit Enchancer comes in hot as the final track of the record (excluding the digital exclusive), and it’s packed with smouldering grooves. The Berlin based producer seems to be firmly looking back at classic 90’s techno for inspiration on this one, as the track would be easily mistake for early Technasia or Monika Kruse.

Chlär goes hard with rolling low end, yet show’s the light with illuminating strings, funked up disco sampling, and some infectious dub chord for good measure. The most impressive piece of of production prowess on this track is Chlär’s impeccable ability to create raw and raucous drum grooves and exemplary swing on his percussion, simply infectious in every possible way.

Chlär makes his Dublin debut in Wigwam this Saturday for Research & Embedded. Tickets can be found HERE.
