Exclusive Premiere: Daniel Stefanik – Edge Of Motion
As you may have guessed from our coverage we’re big fans of My Favorite Robot here at Data Transmission. We’re also keen admirers of global electronic music icon Timo Maas. Thus you can imagine our excitement when it was revealed that the inaugural Crossing Wires compilation as mixed by the Toronto trio would be followed by one from Mr. Maas this summer.
Still riding high off the success of his latest full length release, Lifer, back in 2013 which showcased his ability to traverse the entire electronic music landscape with guest appearances from the likes of Placebo’s Brian Molko, Brighton chanteuse Katie Cruel and James Lavelle, Timo’s unveiling as the man to helm Crossing Wires sophomore effort is a bold statement of intent for the series. Of course, Timo also runs his own influential imprint, Rockets & Ponies but the German producer has a history with MFR the label having previously delivered standout track ‘Dancing For My Pleasure’ on the first Crossing Wires.
The mix features 14 brand new and exclusive tracks from a range of artists old and new – some are closely associated with MFR, some less so, but together they paint a perfect picture of the state of modern electronic music in a mix that has left us mightily impressed. This edition’s standout track? It’s too close to call but we certainly loved Daniel Stefanik’s ‘Edge Of Motion’ from the very first listen; it’s driving nature willing us on throughout the day and calling us to select it for premiere. So we did just that!
