Oliver Huntemann vs Dubspeeka
Myths abound in the north when it comes to techno ground zero, and they refuse to go away. Oliver Huntemann is one of a handful of children of the north who, for what seems like an eternity, add an element of credence to the mythology. He does not, of course, live in a snowy forest or at the edge of the polar oceans. The sun does, on occasion, shine down on Hamburg. Nevertheless, there is a tendency towards hypothermic reduction in the rigorous efficiency of the Huntemann oeuvre. Images of cold storage warehouses, desolate heavy plant sites and bluish flesh are not entirely misplaced. Shards of German Engineering glimmer in his music, laced with persuasive logic, gruesome Darwin- ism. What remains: what works.
In the summer of 2014, Oliver has been lining up the latest instalment of the hugely successful PLAY! series preceded by an EP release aptly entitled “PLAY! 05 EP – Blitz & Donner”. Oliver’s „PLAY! 05 live in Vienna“ contribution to the mix series follows in the esteemed footsteps of previous PLAY! CDs (D-Edge Sao Paolo, Rex Club Paris, Cielo NYC, Roxanne Parlour Melbourne) and has been recorded live from Austrias number one spot „Grelle Forelle“.
Elusive Bristol based producer dubspeeka has impressed with an array of releases over the past twelve months, on labels such as Truesoul, Bedrock, Ideal Audio and on his very own Skeleton imprint. Also well-known as one part of Kosheen, he’s now exploring the electronic music world in all its variety under his dubspeeka alias.Our man from the UK’s West Country has been exciting many of Techno’s elite over the last months with his very own sound. His tunes are deep, yet powerful and driven by the heaviest of basslines and kick-drums and their dark edge. Watch out for dubspeeka!
