Cristian Vogel :: The Never Engine (Tresor, CD/2LP)

(11.24.07) For me, Cristian Vogel has always been one of the more interesting techno musicians and I approach his releases with optimism.

My Downfall is the spiritual successor to 2005’s excellent Rossz Csillag Alatt Született, which is probably Aaron Funk’s most acclaimed work. This, on the […]

What is GESCOM?

(11.19.07) ELECTRONIC musicians are infamous for burying their projects in a deep burrow of conjecture and mystery, and there are few more enigmatic guises than Gescom. Much like the recent The Tuss records on Richard D. James’ Rephlex Records, there is an abundance of conspiracy theories that deliberate the pseudonyms veracity. However, whereas The Tuss’ […]
