Pfirter / Kangding Ray _ Caos y Orden Superior / Wars [SA015]

Argentina and France join forces on split vinyl. One grabs the feet while the other attacks the heart and brain.

Juan Pablo’s track: Caos y Orden Superior, is definitely the banger of the two tracks on this release. A disjointed synth line carries the track along, as the straight beat intentionally maintains your focus. This one has to be the most straight-up Techno track that I’ve heard on SA in what seems like a while – and it’s great to hear a bit of ride cymbal (coming in as it should) and put to good use!

Kangding Ray’s track sounds (in a great way) like Daft Punk mangled in Paul Stretch and slowed down over a subtle kick. Heavily sidechained; it almost sigh’s when it pauses to breathe.

Wars is not sad enough to be called melancholic, nor is it uplifting enough to be called epic. Its probably best described as being rather bittersweet.. and similar in nature to the aftermath of it’s namesake.


Out on 26th October



Music production and history are my biggest passions in life. Though people often say that Techno is faceless and should be about the music blah, blah, blah.. I believe in the need to document the people and stories behind it. Techno is a very small world in reality and I think it needs a proper resource. I hope that everyone who is interested in Techno finds this blog accessible in terms of the way that it is written. I personally prefer to hear the artists voice as loud as the music and never enjoy synopsised and pasteurised versions of old conversation; the sort that's peppered with the occasional quote here and there.
