Techno tinkerer (and quondam FACT mixer) Conforce is to helm a new vinyl-only label.
Boris Bunnik has established himself as one of the most formidable forces in Dutch techno. Bunnik’s standard mode is a judicious combination of delicate pinpricks and forceful wallops – like Pantha Du Prince, say, he’s a remarkably tactile producer. He’s previously had cheques cut by the folks at Rush Hour, who released his skittering Our Concern EP back in 2007. Delsin and Meanwhile have since welcomed him into the fold, with the latter hosting 2010’s ultra-precise debut LP Machine Conspiracy. Now, it seems, Bunnik’s decided to strike out on his own.
As Juno Plus report, Bunnik’s new vinyl-only Transcendent imprint will focus on “deep and abstract mental sound excursions”. The first release arrives courtesy of barely visible techno producer Hexagon (who may or may not be Conforce in disguise). The Red Shift EP will collect four tracks of glitch and prickly techno, and will be limited to 400 copies. Snippets of the disc are available to stream below.
Transcendent will release Red Shift on 12″ vinyl on October 31, 2012.
