Air Texture VI
I've always liked the Air Texture series and version VI isn't any different.
The Air Texture Series asks two Producers/ Performers to select a double CD worth of unreleased music. The only guidance is the music should not be main floor bangers, other than that as you say "The floor is yours" , allowing them autonomy over their selection.
This time Steffi and Martyn were asked to step up. Exciting, since as residents at Berghain/Panorama Bar - two of the most important dancefloors in the world… how would two such respected artists approach the experimental ethos of the series. “A common thread in our friendship and collaborations is that we’ve always been enthusiastic about discovering new and old music and sharing our findings with each other. In our approach for Air Texture the aim was to reflect that joy, and compile a set of tracks by both established producers and new talent, each with their own unique interpretations of a leftfield, non linear aesthetic. We wanted to bring together producers that occupy different places in the electronic spectrum; people we looked up to for a long time such as Total Science, As One (Kirk Degiorgio) and Stingray, but also peers and new talent, such as Herron, Actress, VIVEK, Late Night Approach, and Shed. The challenge for us was to not only bring together these producers from different genres but to make the whole thing cohesive as a listening experience. That’s what makes it an exciting comp for us and the musicians involved"
Air Texture VI will be releasing on the 5th October. Give the bandcamp page a follow below to watch out for preorder details
