We premiere fresh music from Berlin techno pioneer, Marcel Fengler, as the former Berghain resident returns to his IMF imprint. We premiere the industrial-tinged ‘Caution’ as Marcel keeps things locked, rolling & gritty, supplying a hard-edged dancefloor destroyer.
There’s no denying Marcel Fengler’s profound impact on the ever-changing techno landscape. A pioneer in his own right, Fengler’s works have flooded dancefloors and set lists worldwide for decades, and that shows no sign of changing anytime soon. His latest work, released on his Index Marcel Fengler imprint, is an all-encompassing four-track EP titled “Unleashed”, including a remix from sought-after Stuttgart duo SHDW & Obscure Shape. The EP is available digitally from 13th October, with a vinyl release expected to follow.
“It has been quite a journey with this EP, as I’ve been exceptionally discerning about the sound and the entire production process. My goal was to create a release tailored for the dance floor, with the right amount of energy for peak-time moments, while also ensuring a profound and well-structured sonic experience. After testing potential tracks in my DJ sets, I distilled what I believe captures the essence I want to share with the audience. Furthermore, I’m thrilled to have SHDW & Obscure Shape on board for a formidable remix. Their work carries echoes of the raw and forceful sonic textures from earlier times, which I hold in high regard. I’m genuinely delighted with how everything has come together, and I hope you enjoy it!” – Marcel Fengler.
We premiere ‘Caution’ a brutally tough locked groove that shows Marcel at his most raw & honest. The industrial leaning track leaves little to the imagination as leads with harsh percussive drive and endless layers of cadence throughout the mix. Add a robotic vocal and relentless low-end groove and you’ve got a sure-fire dancefloor destroyer.
