After a stellar week for premieres, we wrap up for this week with an amazing, high octane techno track, from hardware enthusiast Stefan Goldmann.
Goldmann’s music has been released on labels like Perlon, Innervisions, and others since 2001. In further years, Goldmann has created a tight relationship with Berlin’s Berghain and Panorama Bar club, for which he publishes a column, is a co-author of its book, and is the creator of the Elektroakustischer Salon event series.
Goldmann’s label, Macro was founded by in 2007 and has released some legendary records from equally incredible artists. Its releases range from techno tracks to symphonic recordings. It has also been home to releases from artists such as KiNK, Maria Chavez, Peter Kruder, Pete Namlook, Raudive, Santiago Salazar and remixes by Pépé Bradock, Ricardo Villalobos and The Knife’s Oni Ayhun.
A series of three 7″ on records on Macro, sees Stefan Goldmann probing the upper temporal reaches of techno. Clocking in at 150 bpm, these tracks are bold and blazing signals for a collective return to highly energised club experiences. More bouncy than harsh, these tracks show impressively how different tempos allow for their own variety of joyful expression.
Toady we premiere the track ‘Geared’ which finishes out the 6 track release with raw voltage and sparks flying. The blistering yet functional techno bomb is driven by well crafted analogue tool. Bleep heaven at 150bpm, sounds good to me.
