Rktic – [2003] Northern Lights LP


Frosty minimal techno. This (by online standards) antique release at the Thinner netlabel had a big part in slowly seducing me into exploring the less danceable areas of electronic music. I wonder how this album will sound to me in 30 years. It now feels quite timeless, a bit like some tracks by Kraftwerk.

The Opposite of… what? Industrial synths and uncompromising drums create a surprisingly “catchy” soundscape. Minimalistic, yet somehow juicy. You’ll like it! 🙂

A Walk on Deep Snow sounds like advertised: soft periodic crunching noises, the clicky decorations et violà: minimal techno.
