Stripped down German-based duo provides the goods on this week’s D-Node podcast. Klein & Meister are up and comers from the Berlin scene with attention grabbing releases on DJ Emerson’s Micro.fon label. Check their well paced selections and insights after the drop.
Marcel Dettmann – Drawing
One of our favorite tracks, period. Inspired us a lot during our early production sessions. To us, this track has an amazing emotional power. It’s taking your mind down the rabbit hole. It’s also one of the best set openers I ever used – creates an amazing atmosphere on the floor and gets the crowd ready for more massiveness to come.
Objekt3 – Extrakt 2.01 (Klein & Meister Edit)
Once the guys from Objekt3 handed in their loops, we initially had exactly this idea in mind. We simply knew where to go with this. It somehow totally fit into the Klein & Meister dark and clean techno “grid”. The whole EP including DJ Emerson’s edits are a nice, harmonic collection of tracks. We are looking forward to getting our hands on the next project by Objekt3.
Klein & Meister – Cityvibe
This track was actually conceived during an outdoor brainstorm session with the computer sitting on the lap. We have been experimenting a lot with field recordings and also a voice recording from our colleague at work sending it back and forth through Reaktor to create a nice and dark atmospherically background. Thanks Jim, we will buy you that house later from the gazillions of royalties.
Amon Tobin – Piece Of Paper
We had the pleasure of attending Amon’s latest show in Berlin. Listening to his musical creations and their perfection – especially this track – changed our mind in regards to where electronic music should go. Not regarding musical style, but being more experimental with sounds and investing more time into proper sound design to create something that’s fresh and unique.
Akufen – Architextures
Obviously the most danceable tracks of the ones we listed, it perfectly mixed with Swayzak’s “Groovetechnology v1.3″. It is still giving us that particular vibe despite (or maybe because!) it does not feature evolving breaks or white noise attacks – we will never forget that particular moment at Panoramabar when we were just like: “Please set this as a loop and let it last forever!”
