klein & meister from berlin single-handedly show us what minimal techno in 2010 should sound like. facade is a cool stripped down bassline heavy techno groove spiced with effects and crunchy sounds. it creates a heavily dark atmosphere until a cool vocal lifts the mood slightly up and gets company from a bit of a hypnotic melody. feinperl is a minimal masterpiece and wonderfully shows what once made this genre so exciting...dry, raw, modern, funky & relentlessly energetic with lots of carefully programmed breakdowns and pieces. shut your face, the title track, embodies more of a raw dub techno vibe. first part of a double release. part 2 featuring remixes by asem shama & dj emerson!
early support by chris liebing, carlo lio, luciano, dj hell, daniel sanchez, paco osuna, tim xavier, drumcell, tommy four seven, tony rohr, oliver klein, danny tenaglia, m.in, dualton, harada & someone else
