Italian producers Clockwork and Avatism have been passing material back and forth since their shared Archetype EP on Berlin’s Dumb Unit imprint in 2012, and after an intense performance at Sonar in 2013, they decided to unite their projects under the moniker CW/A.
The 12″ of their debut EP, Conducting The Method, dropped last week via Vakant, yet it’s not available on the web until its Beatport release on September 29. Luckily, we’ve already got an exclusive stream of melancholy techno cut “Sothis”for your streaming pleasure, below. The track uses a stuttering techno template to reign in erratic bursts of breakbeats and electro bass, giving a sense of the group’s improvisational approach without relinquishing its obsessive focus.
The latest release from Berlin’s Vakant is about to hit the shelves – a rather interesting sonic experiment created by Cesare Marchese, previously known as Cesare vs. Disorder.
Cesare is the newest member to join Vakant’s expanding family of like minded producers with his Aether E.P straddling the middle ground between after party madness and early morning reflection.
You can watch the video for the title track ‘Aether’ at the bottom of the page and if you drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us where the it was filmed, you can be in with a chance of winning a copy of the record and a guest-list spot to the Vakant Freinds night in Berlin which takes place this Friday (3rd June).
