You will find in this category each week, a review on a MP3 track or vinyl track which is breaking the news. All styles are on the “menu” of this category: minimal, house, electro, techno or even trance in some cases.
The topic will be supplemented by other albums following the latest electronic music news.
In its own way, Speicher on Kompakt Extra has always been one of the most uncompromising series in the Kompakt universe. Starting out as a mere compilation series to tie up some loose ends from our regulars, it has since become a guarantee for vanguard dance sounds from all over the planet, with Kompakt being able to invite and support electronic artists that comfortably inhabit both the delicate and the more deliberate ends of the electronic music spectrum. Here is the new techno EP of Sei A that will be released the 14th of May.
That's also where we found the highly versatile Sei A, native Glaswegian, now residing in London and immersing himself in the hybrid house, firm techno and bass-heavy scenes that happily co-exist within UK's capital. He's well known to paint vivid and emotional sonic pictures that touch on rather more considered house and bass tropes, prizing feeling over fads and staging an impressive balancing act between hardcore beat science and lush, moody arrangements. More precisely Andy Graham aka SEI A is one of the most talked about acts to emerge in recent time and we are extremely excited to welcome him to Kompakt. His recent Turbo Recordings releases have caused a whirlstorm of support and charting.
This 12" is no different, staging an impressive balancing act between hardcore beat science and lush, moody arrangements, this breakthrough single features two stellar examples for Sei A's stylistic reach, rave stabs included. “Hawk tone” is the peak of the EP because of the pump instrument it uses. So hot and fat.
Welcome to the many-faceted party that is Speicher.
