EUPHORIC DARKNESS

DEEP MATTER pulses with moody bass, melancholic pads, atmospheric field recordings, and crisp percussion to bring the euphoric darkness of Berlin’s ethereal techno to MASCHINE.

THE SOUND OF BERLIN

Amid the dust of the Berlin Wall's collapse, a stark, cold techno sound was forged. It ruled Berlin until its hard edges were stripped away in favor of minimal techno's lean layers and abstracted elements. Minimal developed, too, and its sparse percussion melded with polished grooves and pulsing synths to create the atmospheric, ethereal techno of contemporary Berlin. DEEP MATTER delivers precisely this sound – one embodied by labels like Steyoyoke, Crossfrontier Audio, and Stil vor Talent.

POLISHED AND POWERFUL

DEEP MATTER layers warm melodic chords, with reverb and delay for creating effervescent grooves and hypnotic, trance-like tracks. Found sounds from empty cans, marbles and more provide texture, while reamped hand drums convey richness and depth for emotive soundscapes. Tuned drum sounds and production-ready patterns converge with MASSIVE and MONARK sub-bass, drone presets and analog synth pads to pack a powerful punch, while field recordings from Berlin give the expansion an authentic atmosphere.

ABOUT TORSTEN FASSBENDER

Torsten Fassbender is the co-founder of progressive trance duo Wellenrausch, and his productions and remixes are heard on dancefloors around the world. He began writing music at a young age, eventually building a home studio and delving into the world of MIDI synths. For DEEP MATTER, Fassbender channeled a more experimental side – as seen in his side project Kymatik – influenced by a love of tech house, deep house, and electronica. He's also contributed sounds and demos to FORM and KINETIC TOYS.
