Berlin-based Cosmin TRG’s second full-length LP ‘Gordian’ is set for release on Modeselektor’s 50Weapons label in April. The follow-up to the Romanian producer Cosmin Nicolae’s debut LP on the label, ‘Simulat’, in 2011. Nicolae says about the record “Gordian is as much a document of my past year as it is the beginning of a conversation. The title references an ancient myth, but describes the very contemporary, impossible task of discerning between real and replicated, authentic and contrived. Coping with facts, objects and bodies, the necessity of ‘making it’, fear of failure, fear of ‘not being happy’ are today’s topics, and Gordian is my attempt at an exploration of those issues.”
He’s also had releases on Hessle Audio, Subway and Audio Freaks (all produced as TRG), he sound is now a very deep & rich techno, to hear a sample of the first track see below.
