Timo Maas – Watching The Robots EP

Timo has been pulling out forward-flying cerebral techno stonkers for years and now trailers his upcoming Crossing Wires compilation with a pair of luminescent forays into the ever-deepening nether-world currently sorting out the men from the boys in minimal.

MFR has been at the forefront of this cutting edge for years and is unleashing a catalogue peak as Timo’s title track slides in on a groaning undertow of alien drone frequencies and arcane static, congealing into spectral pulses and muted future-funk.

Teaming up with Santos, he takes it to even deeper levels of heady subterranean intoxication on ‘Z Panorama, complemented by a supremely atmospheric MFR remix, who up the tempo and add extra-terrestrial new melodies and widescreen soundtrack dynamics.

The delirious polar opposite to the One Direction tactics infesting what’s currently getting presented as techno on Ibiza and a monumental slice of groundbreaking electronic gold.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
