Index Marcel Fengler unearths another Berlin-forged gem with a debut release for Somewhen. Following an impressive pair of EPs on his own Sana imprint, label boss Marcel Fengler was quick to invite the newcomer to the IMF family. Following a pair of head turning performances on line-ups alongside Fengler at his Berghain home, the time has come for IMF 05 to bring Somewhen’s talents to wider attention
A-side cut ‘Dain’ is a stripped down techno trip engineered for dancefloors at dawn: a siren call to the club’s most battle hardened heads, its subtle machinations will prove deadly in the right DJ’s hands. Over on the B-side, ‘Aula’ is the EP’s more unpredictable beast, its rougher rave edges rounded off by a rich bass synth and enigmatic vox pads that give the track an unsettling air as it nears its conclusion. XJ closes the EP with an insistent slice of acid with Somewhen’s own playful modern twist.
