Sven Schaller with a new release series: "I'll find my own way- shows the industrial side of Mr. Abstract.
From 4th September on the world of Techno will get to know another side of Sven Schaller, a man with many talents in electronic music. With "I'll find my own way- Schaller starts a new release series on "Abstract Records-, which demonstrates his new passion for dark industrial Techno. This new project starts on Abstract045 and includes three Tracks "Runaway Train-, "Continuum- and "Train Whistle-
Sven Schaller's debut album "Outside World- is only six month old as the "Abstract Records--founder already starts a new project. With his release series "I'll find my own Way- Schaller is going to live out his dark and rough side of music. The first three tracks "Runaway Train-, "Continuum- & "Train Whistle- are actually a very different acoustic way to Schaller's "Outside World-. Regarding to the catchy tunes of his debut album, "I'll find my own Way- has a real dull ambience. "Since Outside World my sound altered a lot. I play mechanical and industrial Techno. Dark and rigorous with rough edges. Right now this sound affects me a lot-, Schaller is describing his motivation for the new project
Thus the Techno-morphism of Mr. Abstract continues 2 Is there an end in sight? Schaller is not going to reveal: "It is still indefinite how long "I'll find my own Way- lasts. Furthermore it is also doubtful if there are only my tracks at the end, but I guess some Remixes will definitely be released.- However Remixer will discover fancywork and high quality material due to the first three tracks "Continuum-, "Runaway Train- & "Train Whistle-. Especially the first track hypnotizes with a monotonous and synthetic-wobbling bassline and a pulsatory drum until a dark carillon comes up. This makes it to a morbid piece of Techno music. "Runaway Train- is a Techno monster. A masterpiece based on progressive and high-ranged Techno with a strong emphasis on HiHats. Schaller's former alter ego KAOZ breaks through 2 although clearly matured and leisurely.
