Porter Ricks is the duo of Andy Mellwig and Thomas Köner. They twisted dub techno into wild, abstracted shapes influenced by underwater acoustics and tidal flux—an approach equally as radical as that of minimalist pioneers Basic Channel, whose Chain Reaction label published much of their early work. Almost two decades on from their 90s-era releases, they released Shadow Boat and Anguilla Electrica, both on Tresor Records, unleashing once again their muscular rhythms and plunderphonic sound design.
