Berlin-based German artist Oliver Rosemann’s debut EP on Konsequent is a massive in-your-face 4-track dance-floor commander. Conceptually brilliant in its simplicity and sound design, it keeps the high voltage energy going through the expert use of pounding drums, sawing synth lines, cascades of bells – swirling between analogue noise and razor-sharp hi-hats.
The dancer is reminded of some of the 90s Planetary Assault Systems, on Peacefrog nevertheless, this EP is a mighty laser sword of contemporary techno.

The Black Chamber is Alexander Kowalski’s acid project, debuted over a decade ago on Heiko Laux’s acid imprint U-Turn.
Now, after a long hiatus “The Black Chamber” is back with another acid-soaked release on Konsequent.
This 303-driven EP makes excellent use of texture and is soaked in a corrosive acid bath, violently whipping over the tight and forcefully leading kick, which is accompanied by rusty hi-hats, making the concept of less is more seem rather pretentious.
This release is unquestionably a brutal statement, and not for the faint-hearted.
