Always pushing forward. That’s how you could describe Manchester electronic producer Andy Stott‘s music. He gave up making formulaic club tracks to focus on pionneering weirder “knackered house,” combining “sludgy tempos, grainy sounds, dense atmospheres.”
He continues exploring new sounds on his latest album Too Many Voices. Perhaps the most interesting track is ‘Selfish,’ where Stott shapeshifts between grime and a distorted dancehall beat. Pay extra attention to catch the noise in between.
Unknown Archetype is a collaboration between underground techno producers Roxy Tripp & Oliver Kucera. The duo’s new track ‘Tripp’ is a pulsating industrial roller with a dope music video playing off the force of white noise.
A Made Up Sound (formerly known as 2562) is Dutch producer and former record label owner Dave Huismans. He recently announced the shutdown of his eponymous imprint by putting out a 20-track retrospective: A Made Up Sound – (2009-2016). His forward thinking techno will continue to stand on its own.
