Barcode 4250382427186 Rel date 19.5.2014 Tracklisting A. Materium B. Primary Poker Flat Recordings welcomes back the ever-prolific Alex Niggemann for another speaker-troubling dispatch. This time out, the Aoen and Soulfooled boss drops a heavy–duty release that more than lives up to his usual high standards. ‘Materium’ is epic in every sense of the word- a sprawling, tough journey into analog techno - with a dash of house thrown in. It rips through the speakers - the crisp and aggressive production provides the space for growling synths and atmospheric, tense pads. What’s more, the whole track audaciously dissolves into silence mid way through - before exploding back into life via a descending analog synth line. ‘Primary’ is no less dramatic, but opts for a dubbier vibe as it builds and releases the ever-present tension. It’s hard, moody, electronic funk for after-hours basements and warehouses.
