EDELSTAHL – Collapsed EP

Swiss Techno warlord Edelstahl is kicking off 2015 with intent with this new package of belligerent productions – all latched onto his signature hefty sound. Already boasting a discography into the hundreds – there’s a relentless energy about the start of this year and with this just the start of a sonic assault in the months ahead – we’re looking at a memorable road ahead.

Keeping to a protocol that’s glued down Edelstahl’s imposing production style– ‘Call Me’ laces an absorbing and chaotic lead line that sprays erratic frequencies around the fierce sub bass and hefty kick streaks. The only respite – a short and eerie break that sends a swirling lead into a strung-out stack of delay repetitions - before being extinguished by a typically hostile bass introduction. Edelstahl’s corrupt and infectious synth loop is as ever – a stiff proposition and pushing the envelope for tough and high-impact Techno that demands attention.

Tough from the launch – ‘Darkmoon’ sits on a bed of mutated percussive elements - all screwed down to the pulsing bass drum – resulting in a stiff and volatile-sounding low end that pushes the subs to extremes, without ever sounding muddy or overcooked. The modular-sounding recess gives the bass a short break, before collapsing into a trippy climax, which reinitiates the authoritative bass passage. Wrapped in haunting risers and disturbed synth stabs – Edelstahl devises a flurry of variations on the rhythmic elements,keeping ‘Darkmoon’ unpredictable throughout the production’s length.

Starting with a burst of erratic hats and top end – ‘Storm’ kick off with a punchy kick and reverb-soaked hits before halting to a breakdown - letting off a huge metallic synth upshot before opening to the devious main body. Patched up with broken-fx, mechanical hats and brash bottom end – ‘Storm’ shows off Edelstahl’s love for the unpredictable. The middle break cuts away the low end – introducing a daunting lead that no doubt inspired the track’s title. With the year ahead looking like a non-stop barrage of music – Edelstahl is making a stand in the Techno game. With his barrel fully-loaded with a ceaseless line of imposing productions – there’s little standing in the way of a producer that’s impressing at the highest of levels
