Tripeo is next on KIAS with ‘Robber Barons’


Next up on Nuremberg label Kias is an accomplished and subtle recording from Tripeo who follows up releases on Ben Sims’ label and Clone with his ‘Robber Barons’ EP. 

Detached From Our Surroundings’ sets an intoxicating tone from the get-go.

Moody, deep-set chords creep through minor keys while a staccato riff circles overhead. Drums are cleverly balanced against the heady melodies making it equally as effective in a warm-up set or as part of a memorable after-hours trip. 

‘Robber Barons’ then builds a nice contrast between organic sonics and raw, 808 drums. A stripped, primal groove unfurls as parameters are gently manipulated, building tension throughout a brooding and dynamic piece of analog-heavy Techno. 

Answer Code Request Remix then weighs in and offers up a free-flowing interpretation of Robber Barons. Here, a master at work allows his machines to breathe as the track gradually renders a dreamy but rugged landscape.

We premiere ‘Robber Barons’ on NUDE Techno, check it out here and grab it here.

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.
