After an acclaimed mix for the "Audiomatique 1.0 " label-compilation and the 12" "Shadowboxing" (am06, feat. superb Trentemøller remix) Copenhagen based Martinez aka Martin Swanstein returns with a smashing new single on Audiomatique! The title-track "Echochamber" is an interesting deep space track built up on a heavily dark bass and some extraterrestrial sound-gimmicks. "Woodenbox" on the b-side is as far out as the a-side, but a bit less darker. A cool sliding groove spreads a deep but slightly progressive feel.
Electric byCrane A.K.- AM18 - 12 "
Crane A.K. aka A.Nov and Knigge (aka Michael Friedrich and Markus Gniech) have been releasing cutting edge "relaxed bleepy" tracks since 1999 on labels like Force Tracks and Poker Flat which also appeared on well reputed compilations like Richie Hawtin's "DE9 ", "Closer To The Edit " and on Kompakt's "Für Dich" mixed by Tobias Thomas before their debut longplayer "Pink Eyed Pony " dropped in 2001.
After a creative brake the duo is back on the scene and recorded "The Sputnik Diaries " for Force Tracks in spring 2006. On "Electric " Crane A.K. deliver three fresh and stunning tracks from the wide world of modern techno music. The a-side is packed with deep bold sounds and the title track is a true bass-killer, hithat-monster or simply 150% "Electric". Dark greetings from the motherboard. The flip side holds two more tracks: "Lotek " is a bleeping, trippy and noisy monster, before "Sly Snake " rattles over a cold but groovin' dancefloor. Weird and exciting EP!
