Various Artists / hamburg elektronisch 3 - teknomusi ep
hafendisko’s hamburg elektronisch is back with a delicious teaser ahead of the third album of the series. Once more the label stands up and shouts about the city’s rich and diverse electronic music scene. The series so far has brought together local legends and up and coming artists alike - showing the world that Hamburg’s famous modesty hides an embarrassment of riches.
This vinyl only EP lands prior to the full compilation, and features some exclusive reasons to get very excited.
Longtime not only home-town favorite Erobique (Carsten Mayer) sets out the stall for this release with the very special title track - 'Teknomusi', a charming, deranging and driving take on 'techno music' - quite different from his usual, rather funk driven output.
Oliver Huntemann - who’s contribution to the Hamburg scene (most recently via his Senso label) has been incalculable over the last couple of years, brings us 'Kiez'- a dark and moody tech house growler that gets under the skin from the very start.
Remute (Denis Karimani) is no slouch in making people move either, and as owner of the Remute label has been responsible for some of the city's finest output. 'Summer Slump', which sees its vinyl premiere here, sees him lock into a techy groove and explore various audio textures and shades, while keeping things firmly rooted to the floor.
'Teufelsbrück' (Vinyl Edit) comes courtesy of the Wareika guys, (Jakob Seidensticker, Florian Schirmacher and Henrik Raabe) who’s dedication to exploring the further reaches of electronic dance music always impress. Here we get an amazing trip into psychedelic tropicalia vibes via techno driven synth incantations.
