We start the week off with a bang as Madrid based techno assassin Rodiaz debuts on Marcel Fengler’s Index imprint for their 10th anniversary. The young and promising Spaniard has supplied an elegantly powerful techno anthem, which blurs the line between chaos & euphoria.
Marcel Fengler presents “10 Years IMF,” an energising collection that celebrates a decade of his prominent label Index Marcel Fengler, the longtime Berghain regular begins a new professional chapter as 2022 comes to a close.
A “heart project,” which took two years to complete, features 12 tracks that are exclusive to the collection and, in keeping with the imprint’s concept, brings together established and up-and-coming artists. ’10 Years IMF’ serves as Fengler’s own manifesto of techno and the aesthetic potential of the genre while also presenting tracks that span the complete gamut of the techno genre, from groovy to elegant, industrial to ambient or broken beat, straight up to the tougher techno variation.
Functional and thrilling in equal doses, the compilation explores Fengler’s multi-faceted vision of techno, curating a line-up of tracks from artists across the generation. The compilation includes tracks from; Etapp Kyle, Dasha Rush, SHDW & Obscure Shape, ONYVAA & Mattia Trani, Marcel Fengler & The Advent, VRIL, STEYA, Scalameriya, Gerald VDH, Cratan, Chontane & Rodiaz.
Rodiaz’s ‘The Ancient Sage’ has been a beloved go-to track to close out sets for Fengler and appropriately winds out the project. It’s a timely reminder that techno can be simultaneously elegant and powerful and the dancefloor need not suffer any loss of energy because of it. “He sent me a playlist of uncompromising stunners and each track was better than the last. Expect more bangers on IMF soon.”
