Bristol producer Artifact's footwork material collected on Cologne Tracks

Bristol-based producer Artifact has released an 11-track collection of material made while living in Cologne.

Simply titled Cologne Tracks, the album is closer to footwork than the swung techno of Artifact’s past singles, with most cuts falling in the 150-160bpm tempo range. Although a short press release sent out with the record emphasises Cologne Tracks‘ status as a “retrospective, rather than a debut album proper”, it hangs together nicely, with closer ‘Phat Odyssey’, ‘I Leich’ and ‘White Space Conflict’ immediate stand-outs. The album can be streamed below, and is available in a pay what you like format through Local Action [full disclosure: a label run by FACT staff member Tom Lea].
