Italian imprint Evod Music has been a key source of quality underground techno, not afraid to experiment and break new ground having welcomed the likes of Kwartz, Marcelus, Zadig, and Temudo to its roster.
Jonas Kopp has been an artist of great inspiration to many, and appears to be someone who enjoys venturing out into new corners of sound production and forging interesting ideas along the way. His latest split LP Fear Factory Failing is a distinct demonstration of just this, with a back catalogue that can be found on high profile labels such as Berlin’s Tresor, Oscar Mulero’s PoleGroup, Ellen Allien’s BPitch, Bas Mooy’s Mord, and Chris Liebing’s CLR, he is someone who continues to add to his extensive legacy.
For this DT:Premiere we selected the track “Watching the Past” with its melancholic vibe. A raw, low-end groove, there’s a wealth of clashing layers, creating an at times disjointed feel of dystopian funk, but really it’s an abstract and perfectionist approach to contemporary techno with an exploratory edge.
