IK1&2 alone consist of some of my all time favorite work Arjen has ever recorded, and this collection is a welcome update to those recordings. Anyone who enjoys deeper and more tangential minimal techno will find a treasure trove here - what gorgeous aural riches await you!
Thirteen years after its conception, a remaster of the Infraklang catalog was long overdue. Set up as an audio blog, parallel to the Reduct series, its focus was to release more diverse recordings from the new studio.
For this album though, I have limited myself to remaster just the Ohrwert recordings, which still clocks in at over 90 minutes. As none of the tracks dip below the ten minute mark, they range from extensive tube-amplified tape echo excercises, to a half-beat crossover between Berlin-school and dub techno, all documenting a slice of time I spent in the studio, jamming into the wee hours of the morning.
