Techno’s Outer Limits :: December 2016

Last emission of 2016 in a series from Techno’s Twilight Zone of EPs/12″s and LPs with notes in the margins.

Abdulla Rashim :: Unanimity (Northern Electronics)

More interested in ambience, texture and analog synthetic techniques than in creating DJ fodder, Rashim eschews the dancefloor imperative and its associated DJ-appeasing 12″ fetishism, emancipating techno from the domain of electronic body music, moving the zone of inquiry up from the floor to the doors of perception to engage with mind-body dualism. The last […]
