With a string of releases under his belt on some highly respected labels, Yan Cook is now focusing on his own fully distinguished style which is immediately recognizable from the first seconds of a track: heavy and sometimes smooth dancefloor techno with haunting atmospheres and striking basslines. For Berlin audiences, Heiko Laux hardly needs introduction. For those new to the city, Heiko is the driving force behind his legendary Kanzleramt label: although the first album wasn’t released until 1998, the label had already gathered some exceptional and progressive talent, the list of which has grown to very impressive lengths over the years.

What remains most significant on their output through the main label Skudge Records, as well as their remix material present on a row of different labels, it must be their exceptional sense of loops and unexpected detail in their productions, and their terrific live shows. Sascha Rydell is the gentleman of Fachwerk. He is one third key member of the Fachwerk triumvirate that is leading the way in stripped, funky, dancefloor focused techno. The stuff is in Sascha Rydell’s bones, frankly, and that shines through in his own idiosyncratic tracks and EP’s, as does his ear for an unfamiliar hook, ability to craft a devastating bassline or most inviting groove.
