After the devastating excellence of ‘Audiomatique Volume 1.0’, mixed by venerable label don Martinez, it’s time for the masters to reclaim their techno crown. Steve Bug’s imprint is back with a second label compilation, seamlessly blended by N.Y.C.’s arch tech selector Adultnapper.
‘Audiomatique Volume 2.0’ is a descent into the deepest realms of electronic rhythm, veering from the spare crisp minimalism of Gui Boratto and Martin Eyerer’s ‘The Beach’, to the moody, strobe-lit melancholia of M_nus producer Gaiser’s ‘Found Guilty Mix’ of Adultnapper’s own ‘Juror no. 9’. A perfect snapshot of the label’s diverse roster, Adultnapper subtly builds the mix from stripped back, echoic grooves to tougher club battering technoid epics.
Electronic music’s brightest flames - Trentemoller, Robert Babicz, Joris Voorn, Martin Eyerer, Gui Boratto, Martinez and Adultnapper – all contribute to Audiomatique’s formidable reputation, weighing in with their heaviest tracks.
‘Audiomatique Volume 2.0’ also features no less than eight new, exclusive and unreleased tracks by Robert Babicz, Martinez, Adultnapper, Boratto & Eyerer, The Viewers, Joel Mull and Mikael Jonasson: six on the CD and three more on the vinyl version.
It’s Adultnapper‘s mix that illustrates the electronic zeitgeist, and offers a glimpse of where house and techno are heading in the future. “Adultnapper” is a shadowy figure drawn from the dark reaches of Francis Harris’ imagination. Harris, a philosphy phD drop-out with punk rocker roots, hails from suburban Las Vegas but has called Brooklyn home for the past 9 years - a stretch in which he has established himself as an underground DJ/Producer with a unique sound and a global audience and releases on well reputed labels like Nummer, Superfreq, Audiomatique, Mule Electronic, Dirt Crew and more.
