EB Premiere: Oliver Huntemann presents Fünf – Five Years Ideal Audio

This year sees Oliver Huntemann’s Ideal Audio label clocking up its fifth year in the business. One of the smaller milestones perhaps, but thanks to Huntemann’s singular vision those five years have proved ample time to establish the label as being one of the most consistent within big room techno with a sound that’s easy to identify. Think: pared back, relentlessly hypnotic and with a devastating feel for tension and release. This year’s huge “Aire” 12-inch is perhaps one of the label’s finest moments to date. It saw Oliver Huntemann allied with Dubfire for another entry in their Elements series and boasts one of the biggest but most exquisitely slow builds since Audion’s “Mouth to Mouth”. To celebrate their birthday year, the Hamburg-based label have headed out on a worldwide tour which runs into next year—full details below. What’s more, Huntemann has put together a double CD compilation of fresh and exclusive material alongside some copper-bottomed classics from the first five years. Oliver Huntemann presents 5ünf – Five Years Ideal Audio compilation is out November 28th on Ideal Audio and it’s the first CD which we’re exclusively premiering today. Subtitled Future the CD features fresh goods from Extrawelt, Avatism & Jeremy P. Caulfield, André Winter and, of course, Oliver Huntemann who opens proceedings with the brain-melting low-slung minimalism of “High5”. Here’s to another five years.
