We have an exclusive full stream of Blood Distributed as Pure Colour, Cassegrain’s forthcoming return to Prologue.
Since Cassegrain entered the techno consciousness back in 2010 with the final artist 12″ on Kevin Gorman’s Mikrowave label, the Greco-Austrian pairing of Alex Tsiridis and Hüseyin Evirgren have carved out their own corner in the world of foreboding, bassline driven, deep techno. Following that debut it didn’t take them long to hook up with Prologue, and the Munich-based label has become something of a homebase for Cassegrain. Debuting in 2011 with the Dropa 12″, Evirgren and Tsiridis have gone on to record two further releases on Prologue with last year’s Tiamat double-pack their most recognised work to date.
With material from Tiamat the focus of a recent heavyweight remix package from Prologue – Mike Parker, Svreca, Andreas Tilliander’s TM404 project and Ed ‘Inland’ Davenport were all involved – Cassegrain are set to return to the Munich label with their first solo release of 2014. Set to drop on June 23rd, the three track Blood Distributed as Pure Colour 12″ can be streamed in full below. The title track’s power electronics fall somewhere between a Regis, British Murder Boys and Donato Dozzy production, while the focus of “Hexagon Fifteen” is steely ambience, oblique drums and ghostly textures. The final track, “Yokai”, is what real Prologue fans will associate with most thanks to its floating hypnotisms and extreme feedback loops.
