Next up on !Organism is a bravely entitled EP from German producer Chris Colburn complete with remixes from Petter B.
Colburn, who runs his own label Rohmaterial, has been making heavy techno since 2005 on labels like 8 Sided Dice,
Decoy Records and Driving Forces and this summer is to head out on tour across Europe. This new EP shows he is an innovative talent with plenty to say for himself.
Up first, ‘Neurotic Mother’ is a bulky jam with squirreling percussion and plenty of sweeping bits of synth tension. Sensitive melodies take the edge of the hard beats and this one is the sort of bouncer that really brings crowds together.
Petter B or Petter Börgesson is a Gothenburg based DJ and producer who has been active since the mid nineties. A regular on labels like Drumcode his first remix is an even more urgent and uptempo affair that races along as cantering and elastic synths try to keep up. He also turns in a drumless, seriously dubbed out and lazily shape shifting dub remix which is a masterful bit of remixing if ever there was one.
It’s then back to Colburn for ‘Kolonie’, a thumping techno track marbled with little charges of static and laced with icy hi hat ringlets that never give up. Its heady and intense stuff for darkened warehouses, where final track ‘Thirst’ is a little more minimal, tripped out and curious thanks to its glassy, water like melodic droplets.
This is crisp, clean and seriously no nonsense techno from Colburn, and is another fine release from !Organism.
