Berlin native Erik Wiegand has quietly been a foundational part of the modern techno scene over the years. His work as Errorsmith has constantly ripped up the techno rule book when it comes to constructing beats, and what can and can't go into a dance track. The entirety of his music has come out on his own self-titled imprint or his other MMM stable until recently. PAN has taken it upon itself to bring the artist back to the foray, and he has done so in stupendous fashion. Superlative Fatigue is the legends fourth LP to date, and it crosses as many genres as it does eradicate them, dipping and diving out of techno with his usual levels of wit and charm. As Hardwax imply, there are nuances of dancehall and tribal music in there, manifested through the rough and sporadic beats, but we like to refer to this as 'post-dance', or rather, an amalgamation of all the sounds that have been twisted and edited throughout dance music history over the years. In fact, it would be redundant to condense this down to words, but if you've been a fan of Errorsmith's mythical albums, then here you'll get another reincarnation of the man, as choppy and ethereal as ever, the only difference being that his main point of reference is now coming from kuduru. Unmissable.
