A number of releases by Sleeparchive – Berlin-based master of ascetic, bleepy minimal techno – have been made available digitally for the first time.
These digital editions are of records originally self-released by Roger Semsroth as 12″s or 2×12″s on his Sleeparchive label: the double-pack Hospital Tracks, the Research EP, six-track EP Radio Transmission (2006) and Hadron EP (2008). These can be added to the previously reissued Elephant Island EP (2004), Recycle EP (20045) and Papercup (2007) to form a near-complete digital picture of the Sleeparchive label back catalogue.
Semsroth has been quiet since 2011′s Ronan Point EP on Tresor; here’s hoping that these new digital versions herald some new material.
You can get them from Boomkat, Clone and other quality digital retailers. Stream ‘Meson’, from Sleeparchive’s Hadron, below.
