Entitled, quite simply, Fachwerk EP 2, it follows last year’s Fachwerk EP which included tracks from each of the three producers at the centre of the label’s quite singular techno vision, which combines crunchy, swung mechanical rhythms with warm, rolling, dubby tones. It’s one of several releases which will culminate in the release of the label’s 25th release, which we imagine will be something quite special indeed.
The EP is as brilliant as you’d expect, with the muscularity of Dehnert’s “M10” augmented with vocals that sound like snatches of Arthur Russell, the metallic strings of Lindau’s “Grow” and the manic piano groove of Rydell’s “When You Play It” all offering solid entries into the label’s formidable catalogue.
The Fachwerk EP 2 will be released through Fachwerk on February 27 on blue vinyl, and digitally on March 5, with a third EP to come soon.
