Today we premiere a steamrolling track from formative techno producer Invexis as he makes his return to the techno mainframe, following a twenty year absence from music releases. Invexis’s landmark return to releasing music comes on SHDW & Obscure Shape’s label Mutual Rytm as he merges pinnacle old-school attitudes with present-day techniques.
SHDW & Obscure Shape‘s ethos of merging the past with the present and future, harnessing classic techno influences and shaping them into the sounds of tomorrow has sculpted a rather unique and charismatic place for home for techno through their label Mutual Rytm. The imprint has been the breeding ground for some of techno’s most exciting up and coming names, while also shedding light on some established producer’s that have been carving out the path for future generations.
Their next release welcomes a long-awaited return from Georg Köhler, aka Invexis. Known for releases such as ‘Kalibreur’ on Salpeter Records and ‘Chiffre’ on Planet Rhythm Records, with further releases via Compound and Kazumi, the German talent crafted and shaped his own sound within the techno landscape in the early 2000s. Returning with his first EP release in close to two decades, late December welcomes a return to Mutual Rytm, following on from the inclusion of his track ‘Elektronenwind’ on the label’s ‘Federation Of Rytm I’ release, as he delivers a selection of dynamic, melodic and driving techno offerings across ‘Odyssey’.
Today we premiere ‘Non Return To Zero’ a kaledsocipc look into what makes the Invexis sound so prolific, inspiring and radically idiosyncratic. This gem seems like a time machine into the early 2000’s as Invexis captures sinuous grooves like no other, the German producer grasps and hurls synthesizers with an alarming amount of urgency, yet remains eerily slick and effortlessly funky.
