06th May 2016
Precise, cyclical, cold and above all, atemporal. The sound of one of the most advanced projects of the ‘90s comes back into the spotlight almost 20 years later. “Iesope Drift” and “Ostia” are two of the monikers of producers D. Blaze and Ronald L., best known as the duo “Obscurum” from the golden era of techno.
This mini-compilation joins four of their best productions released under the label “Seico Corp”, a cult record imprint for incited listeners and lovers of the deep and raw side of electronic music. Including milestone tracks “Arlette” and “Idioms”, it aims to be a tribute to the original series, and of course, to the producers that shaped it.
The Berlin-based label Ownlife debuts this new series called “Seld”, perpetuating the legacy of some of techno’s pioneers, and bringing the attention back to music that keeps the pure character and commitment it was created with.
