First up is ‘Ketambourine’, which portrays an eastern edge, with an off-kilter rhythm, haunting drones and solid techno arrangement to make this a potent dancefloor gem.
2012 has been by far the most exciting start to any year in Pig&Dan’s 10 year strong career. After beginning the year with the much acclaimed release “Pollerwiesen” on Stephan Bodzin’s cult label Herzblut, the Dynamic duo once again teamed up with Mark Reeve and produced the techno bomb release “Origami”. Soma records launched “Origami” into the Beatport top 20 and saw the title track just skim the outskirts of the top 10. Almost immediately after, Pig&Dan released the Beatport top 5 smasher “Machines” on Bedrock.
Though still very much couched in techno, the album sees Dutchman Delta – who recently mixed it up for Ann Aimee on their Inertia compilation – explore plenty of new sonic territory, as he often does in his long ranging DJ sets. It’s adventurous, basically, and is an album that doesn’t loose itself in intricate sound design, but instead pairs a raw, machine made aesthetic with plenty of real human soul and palpable earthly emotion.

I like to choose different ways to feel how the music flows through my veins. When i received the new release of Mike Dehnert, it was really early in the morning so i decided to load my phone up with all the songs, slip into my running shoes and live the experience. It was such a great idea, because i was really tripping with the album during the completed way. The sun, the water and my cardiac rhythm were stimulated by the development of these 13 songs.
After a few months of releasing collaborative EPs alongside label mates Sascha Rydell and Roman Lindau Mike Dehnert marks a quarter century of releases on his own label with ‘Fachwerk 25’, a full-length album to be released on vinyl in May and digitally in June 2012.
