TRESOR

The ongoing importance of this album is indisputable, essential both to techno and to Tresor. It is a history intertwined. This work elevates its maker as master, and remain a cherished moment in the Tresor story, sharing an irrefutable singular magic, sounding as present and indispensable as when first created. To understand this work fully is to stand back and celebrate its impact. Originally released in 1994, ‘Internal Empire’ marks a point of transition for Robert Hood moving on from his previous collaborations within Underground Resistance. Robert Hood advanced uncovering the power of true minimalism. Deep soul through a simplicity that showed how much could be done with so little. The devastating rhythms of this album forge the unmatched spirit of this sound, influencing generations to come.

Juan Atkins & Moritz Von Oswald Present Borderland

Transport

Juan Atkins and Moritz von Oswald - the two indispensable protagonists of the 'Electric Garden' - plug back into the wilderness.

‘Transport’ - the new full length effort of the Borderland collaborative project - brings together a new set of studio-refined sequences aimed at colonising some of the dark energy that pulsates through those areas that are thoroughly electrified, even if not ‘on the grid’.

The Detroit-Berlin axis triangulates to a third point which, like the atomic particle that lives in two places at once, flickers between a form of techno-charged ambience and a futuristic club-jazz which cannot be broken down into constitutive parts. Borderland remains caught in a state of enraptured stillness, invisibly moving between every imagined future for electronic sound making.

The result: a font from which springs serene and exhilarating musical ideas that vibrate with refined energy for sixty seconds in every minute.


STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Hypnotic, deep and mesmerizing. These three adjectives arguably define partially the form and function of minimal techno. This album is no dross as the genre has become. In contrast, Transport has been crafted by two well-seasoned techno maestros who bring their own influences to this masterpiece, a deeply satisfying convergence of Detroit and Berlin.
Von Oswald, precursor of dub techno (Basic Channel, Chain Reaction, et al) and Atkins (widely credited as the originator of techno) join forces to demonstrate that the genre is not passé and can still surprise. Appropriate for both dancefloor and home listening. Those into dubby ambient and deep techno will not be disappointed as every track is standout material which should be added to any serious music collector.
