Techno twosome from Christian Hornbostel and Majed Salih #techno #house #electronic #newmusic


After yesterday’s ambient trilogy here’s a pair of contrasting techno tracks from Christian Hornbostel and Majed Salih.

Germany’s Christian Hornbostel has a new Ultrawaves EP out now and here’s a track from it – Ultrawaves Reprise. It’s a fine piece of sleek techno. Lovely crisp beats with lots of sharp edges and precision corners vie with melodic synths. There’s even a bit of relatively unobtrusive spoken vocal. A track filled with rising anticipation. This has a way with a groove that cannot be ignored.

Next, Majed Salih, seemingly from Russia though probably via Syria. You Got It Wrong is an Eastern flavoured piece of techno. This is not sleek. This is something older, darker and deeper. It wears its rough-hewn appearance lightly. This has twisting melodies for those dark places in which to dance. And deep bass for the darkness in your soul. Both sombre and esctatic simultaneously.
