Mori EP

  • Artists Rod
  • Release Date 2011-10-17
  • Labels Balans Records
  • Catalog BALANS004
  • Description The mysterious ROD enterns the Balans arena with an uncompromising, abstract techno affair. Little can we tell you about this mysterious character. Only that a famous DJ from RODterdam is behind this alter ego and that he did a very well received EP on Ben Klocks Klockworks earlier this year.

    The music coming from this persona is one hundred percent puristic, stripped down, DJ tool Techno. With a capital T you have seen that right! No nonsense hypnotism as we rarely see it nowadays. Three or four sounds per track, each pushed and stretched inside out for maximum result. These tunes are made for dark, strobe lid cellars or underground techno temples such as Berghain.

    Techno is back and this is about as abstract and underground as it gets. We look forward to release more ROD records in the future.
