VA – IMF10 part 1 [IMF10.1]

A project 18 months in the making, Marcel Fengler presents a IMF10, a three part compilation series detailing the past, present and future of his label Index Marcel Fengler. Each volume consists of six tracks and encapsulates a different tone. Part one explores deeper and more hypnotic territory, as the legendary Alva Noto makes his debut for IMF re-working the Fengler classic ‘Sphinx’ into a spaced-out industrial beast. DIN, the collaborative project between Fengler and Efdemin reaps an atmosphere-heavy new production titled ‘Akustikkoppler’. Scuba also contributes courtesy of his SCB project, crafting a tripped-out interpretation of Somewhen’s ‘Dain’ from IMF05. Elsewhere close friends Matrixxman (in collaboration with rising producer Riccardo Limiti) and Lucy, also join the project crafting powerful and timeless originals. Always with an eye on the future, Fengler drafts in emerging Slovenian talent Blaukoma, who impresses with the pulsing, tension-packed ‘Iris Pattern’.

Marcel Fengler – Kyu EP [IMF007]

Strength lies in calmness – and vice versa. Marcel Fengler returns on IMF and offers three new inspirited musical pieces that protrude from the club context just as well as cater for your home stereo, picking up on the diverse musical moods defined by his debut album Fokus (Ostgut Ton, 2013) while concentrating on intertwining sound aesthetics.

Somewhen – Dain EP [IMF005]

The IMF label serves up its first release of 2015 and introduces a rising Berlin talent Somewhen. Lead track “Dain” is a stripped back thing of wonder, approaching levels of trippiness that put it somewhere between Dozzy and Acido, whilst “Aula” offers a rougher, more unpredictable side to Somewhen’s production palette. To end matters, Somewhen lays down a gnarled slab of acid perfect for deep in the night in the shape of “XJ”.
