Accentbuster & Mike Volt – Under The Elbe

Accentbuster & Mike Volt in StudioWith this impressive acid techno release, two constant figures of the scoped acid techno scene began their new collaboration project. Mike Volt from Enschede (Netherlands) visited Accentbuster’s house, not only for some sightseeing in Hamburg, but also in his studio. Having a great time together the result of it is also a 4-tracker filled with solid proper and uncompromised acid techno tunes. While been in technoide activity since the early 90s solo and in different combos both – in that spirit – brought their individual parts and influence into these timeless acid techno tracks.

Mike Volt in Fogmountain Studio HamburgStrongly impressed by the Hamburg harbour – the ‘gateway to the world’ – and especially the old elbe tunnel they formed out wavescapes that strongly underline the ambience of being underwater. This comes twisted with the well-known hypnotic and subtle psychedelic effect of two 303 basslines singing together (as they said: ‘one original from the 80s and one with 21st century transistors’). No less than Newcastle-upon-Tyne based Hypnohouse Trax label group from John Rowe decided for the signing, in tradition for numerous impressive hypnotic acid releases, also already by Accentbuster or Mike Volt themselves.

Accent B vs Florian Breidenbach – Destination 313 EP

It was about time do make some tracks with my friend Frank Wirth aka Accentbuster again. It started out this summer when he made “Destination 313” as Accent B which I really liked and instantly remixed. Some time later he did another track called Rotten Industries Inc and together me made the Acid track “Fisher Body Plant 21”. So here we are with a 4 track detroitish techno ep with a light acid flavour to be released on Hypnohouse Trax on March 6th 2017.

Since the kids seem to do that nowadays I also uploaded it to YouTube.

Oedla vs Accentbuster

With the gathering of Stockholm´s Oedla and Hamburg´s Accentbuster there were two things that happened to us on different levels.

The one thing is that two great acid minds were connected to each other, one from the female and one from the male side of pure acid energy.

By this way naturally impulsive and affective virtuosic acid techno elements are formed and ordered for you into an intoxicating straight forward stream of techno soundscapes that naturally force you to move your feet instantly.

The other thing is that this two exceptionally gifted artists are by now working on their own true, honest and proper techno music mainly in the so called “underground” since over 20 years now. Although they are underground, they had lots of releases and fertile cooperations.

For Oedla it has to be mentioned that she has also had collaborations and Releases together with e. g. Dj Misjah or Cari Lekebusch. Besides of that she was the founder of the timeless acid techno label “Acid All Stars” that brought us many impressive releases.

For Accentbuster one should say that he has been active in DJing and producing since the early 90s and is by friendship very near to many old techno and not only acid heads in Germany. He has also been very deep into collaborations, one of the most productive to mention is Fogmountain Soundsystems together with his best friends including also his DJ partner Florian Breidenbach.

So we are very glad to inform you that this new Stockholm-Hamburg axis has given us a completely fresh but also origin-orientated way of acid techno sound that´s quite well looking for one´s peers. Here are the first three tracks called “Save our souls”, “Rainbow Warrior” and “Standing Wave”.

Fogmountain Soundsystems – We Love Techno

Only a couple of weeks after having released their Album “Bamaolo Moods” on Desperadoz Recordz Fogmountain Soundsystems return with the “We Love Techno” EP. This time released by the British Label Hypnohouse Trax. As the name of the EP implies the tracks “Der Stand der Dinge”, “Wir haben Oliver Lieb” and “We Love Techno” these are harder compared to the album. This is because those were produced by Frank “Accentbuster” Wirth and Florian Breidenbach back in 2005. It features the 3 mentioned tracks and a brand new Remix by Labelhead John Rowe.
