/DL/MS/ debuts on Mechatronica with a radiant blend of forward-thinking electro cuts and futuristic bass music.
/DL/MS/ – Calanhi [TRUST040]
“Every 4,044 years comet Calanhi enters the inner solar system, returning from its long and silent voyage through the Oort cloud. As it approaches perihelion, billions on Earth gaze into the night sky, transfixed by the celestial spectacle of their lifetime. While solar winds tear at the comet’s surface, deep inside the glowing ball of ice, ancient machinery springs to life…” Over the past five years Daniel Lodig and Martin Sovinz aka /DL/MS/ have been continually commuting through the electro singularity, constructing their unique brand of fragile bass music from extradimensional sound salvage, and spreading their frequency patterns via the subspace channels of Frustrated Funk, Pomelo, and TRUST. ‘Calanhi’ is the Viennese duo’s debut album – 12 tracks that combine the eternally fresh aesthetics of Detroit-style electro with a relentless curiosity for rhythmic and harmonic experimentation. Seismic club thumpers like ‘Invisible Bits’, ‘Mountains’, and ‘Trusted Funk’ alternate with moody ambient interludes, boldly constructed beat inventions, and blissfully melodic acid breaks. Two collaborations further switch up the flow: Nigerian artist G.Rizo (Hezekina Pollutina, Deejay Gigolo) drops her cryptic rhymes on ‘Divide & Conquer’, and Spanish singer Xx Isis xX provides vocals for ‘Accelerated Frequency’.
/DL/MS/ – Thyme [FR049]
/DL/MS/ are Daniel Lodig aka Lok44 and Martin Sovinz aka Dibek, two of Vienna’s electro elite and they are back on Frustrated Funk. Thyme listens to MIDI Voice Messages on a single channel. You can read and set the channel during device startup. The MIDI channel is persistently stored in the device’s memory.
Dibek – Frantic [VIGRAM002]
Second Vigram installment brings us producing artist Dibek, who is half of Vienna’s electro/techno group /DL/MS/. Dibek explores some Spesimen-style electro on the A-Side, and goes into more bouncy and weird acid jack territory on the flip.
/DL/MS/ – Exit Ghost [TRUST031]
Deep space techno electro on TRUST celebrating the label’s year XX. /DL/MS/ is the viennese duo behind recent Frustrated Funk outing, ‘Omakuda’, last year’s TRUST29, ‘Rogue Intent’, as well as one of the most-played electro tracks of 2017 – their remix of Second Storey’s ‘Attack Of The Modlings’. ‘Exit Ghosts’ takes the /DL/MS/ sound far into haunted new orbits, trading some of its earthy rumble for more ethereal emanations. stark and sombre bass signals return, but find themselves enveloped in delicately threaded string anomalies, copious amounts of melodic ectoplasm, and spirit-like liquid funk dilutions.
/DL/MS/ – Omakuda EP [FR040]
/DL/MS/ are Daniel Lodig aka Lok44 and Martin Sovinz aka Dibek, two of Vienna’s electro elite.
/DL/MS/ – Rogue Intent [TRUST029]
Lok44 and Dibek are /DL/MS/, dropping a malicious four-tracker as their joint TRUST debut. The haze hangs heavy as /DL/MS/ leave straight techno by the wayside, drilling deep underground into unexplored acid break deposits. ‘Rogue Intent’ shakes tectonic plates, colliding grinding breaks with fierce analogue instrumentation, and the fumes oozing from their boreholes are likely to set your head spinning.
