The first premiere of the day comes from one of our favourite techno artists right now, Berlin based Chontane. Having previously released on ARTS, Voltage, Rekids & more, the youngster now arrives on Lobster Theremin with a 4 track EP that blurs the lines between techno, electro and breaks. We premiere ‘Art Of Survival’, a thundering high octane 90’s inspired techno tool.
Chontane has been immersing himself in techno for many years, experimenting with various styles and niches, and evolving his eclectic palette for high energy electronic music. Growing up in Berlin Chontane found himself obsessed with techno’s underground subculture, the young DJ started playing regularly at the early age of nineteen kicking things off with a residency at the Krach nights in Humboldthain and then playing some of the cities most revered clubs, including: Tresor, :// About Blank and OHM.
With his first record release in 2018 still receiving praise and support, Chontane has wasted no time in reaffirming his capabilities. With another successful collaborative release on Magic Power with WERK co-founder J.Manuel and a 4 track EP on the Special Projects sub-label of Radio Slave’s Rekids imprint. The young producer is constantly blurring the lines between techno, breaks and electro in the capital; breaking down some of the perceived barriers that were once there.
Now Chontane brings his colourful and energetic brand of blurred techno to Lobster Theremin’s White series with four hedonistic and mind-altering weapons. Chontane goes hard on the final track Art Of Survival as he focusses on jarring breakbeat grooves and growling low end power. The star of the show is the gleaming lead that has just a touch of French house flair. This is sure to tear up any dance-floor it touches.
