Swiss Techno producer Edelstahl kick's off 2015 with this new package of be

Swiss Techno producer Edelstahl kick's off 2015 with this new package of belligerent productions - all latched onto his signature hefty sound. Already boasting a discography into the hundreds - there’s a relentless energy about the start of this year and with a sonic assault in the months ahead, we're looking at a marvelous one.

Keeping to a protocol that’s glued down to Edelstahl’s imposing production style - ‘Call Me’ laces an absorbing and chaotic lead line that sprays erratic frequencies around the fierce sub bass and hefty kicks. The only respite is a short and eerie break that sends a swirling lead into a strung-out stack of delay repetitions before being extinguished by a typically hostile bass introduction.

Tough from the launch - ‘Darkmoon’ sits on a bed of mutated percussive elements which are all screwed down to the pulsing bass drum that result in a stiff and volatile-sounding low end that pushes the subs to extremes without sounding muddy or overcooked. The modular-sounding recess gives the bass a short break before collapsing into a trippy climax which reinitiates the authoritative bass passage.

Starting with a burst of erratic hats and top end - ‘Storm’ kicks off with a punchy kick and reverb-soaked hits before halting to a breakdown - letting off a huge metallic synth upshot before opening to the devious main body. Patched up with broken-fx, mechanical hats, and brash bottom end - ‘Storm’ shows off Edelstahl’s love for the unpredictable.
