Progressive and acid techno with: Iman Deeper, and Hammarsten #acid #techno #house #electronic #newMusic

A couple of techno tracks from Iman Deeper and Hammarsten showing the breadth of the genre in tracks that range from progressive to acid.

Iman Deeper is first up. He’s from Berlin and is the co-founder of Deep Locus Records on which this track Quasicrystalline is released. There’s the clean techno sound that you’d rather expect from Berlin cool records. But with a lot more than usual melodic sense. And a track that is full of structure and form. This wins not from having particularly prominent beats but from the intricate tapestry within the track and the constantly shifting sense of what this is all about. It’s the title track from his debut album, of which they say it’s a “nine track exploration of multidimensional possibilities and quantum probabilities.”

Next, Sweden’s Hammarsten (Kristofer Hammarsten) with the does-what-it-says-on-the-tin appeal of Acid Anthem. It does acid. And it’s anthemic techno. Perhaps unsurprisingly he says, “When I was 15 years old I heard Chemical Brothers and Prodigy for the first time and I was totally blown away.” Not much left to say other than this is like a brilliantly executed 90s acid flashback. Hits all the right spots. Presses all the right buttons. Explodes in your brain like it should. Even has a lovely bit of piano house in the middle. And leaves you just a little spent at the end.
