This is the fifth release on Eye Teeth, the techno sublabel of Interdimensional Transmissions, by IT compatriot Alstadt Echo. Alstadt Echo effortlessly blends the avant garde with industrial techno influences into his own deeply austere sound, with grainy textures contrasting perfectly against his broken beat structures. The influences are clear, he has even been honored by one – with multiple tunes included on Regis’ “The Boys are Here” mix tape. Alstadt Echo also runs his own Detroit imprint known as Modern Cathedrals, an ode to the concept of cathedrals of sound, the place where this music belongs.
We started this sublabel as way of exploring pure and experimental techno in an entirely contemporary context (where IT often uses historical lenses and a wider musical context). This is Techno from Detroit and America, not Detroit Techno. We would like to see American Techno evolve, and this new imprint is an attempt to be a catalyst in that arena.
This EP was pre-mastered by Neel at Enisslab Studio in Rome. The vinyl was mastered by Carl at Trutone and pressed at Archer Records in Detroit.
