Snork #78 Machine RoomMachine RoomLet's get rough and dirty in the machine room. It's where oil spills and steel creaks. It's where heavy weights are pushed. It's where the energy is born. It's where speed gets going. And it's exactly what Snork Enterprises likes: Some rugged, acid techno piece. So get your hands sweaty for the new Snork #78 by Steve Lorenz.With his fusion of industrial sound, acid tunes and techno beats, Steve Lorenz develops a powerful and nasty atmosphere. You can literally feel the machines that have been producing those five new tracks. It's a genuine, handmade sound. Heavy beats, boosting pace, and screeching tweaks are run by acid power. The speed goes up and down, but the energy remains strong. And the mighty Machine Room constantly forces forward.Steve LorenzHe's a passionate defender of genuine techno values. For him, true techno music should not be limited to computers. It should be a result of research and experimentation by means of modern tools, speaking of hardware AND software. He believes in vinyl and despised the mass production currently carried out by many producers and labels that are just pushing out dozens of releases, compilations or other digital outputs for the sake of quantity and the hope of fame. In contrast, Steve Lorenz's focus of his work is meant to be quality, vanguard and experimentation. That way, over the years, he developed an industrial sound, which is in constant evolution and is mainly influenced by techno, detroit, minimal, dub, acid, and neo trance. Being a very active techno producer since 2008, many of his productions are released on vinyl. His works are appreciated by top techno names such as Ellen Allien, Damon Wild, DJ Hell, Remute, Alex Kork, Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier and many more some of which he already cooperated with as for example in 2010 when he released the vinyl Abstraction EP on Synewave, the New York label founded by Damon Wild. In 2012, Steve Lorenz also started his own label Tarvisium Electronique and by this expanded his collaborations with artists that he personally highly values such as Syntax Error, Legowelt, Orlando Voorn, Roland M. Dill, Applescal and Stanny Franssen.
