The Magnecian (aka Mr. Statik) – Medea [AUTOCH03]

AUTOCH03 ArtworkThe collecting season leads us to our third episode and, as if Northern winds may threaten our summer, we request assistance from redoubtable Southern war men. The search has taken us to the Greek region of Thessaly where the mighty tribe of the Magnetes still exercises solid mythological power…

From this realm, a line of their descents bring us stories of initiatory and adventurous journeys, full of passionate and unconsidered love, like the one present in the myth of Medea.


As in the story, where extreme joy is followed by pulse, tragedy, vengeance and betrayal, The Magnecian reveals his inner techno instinct just to guide our paths through thunderously dark places filled with grainy drum thrills and shadowy riddims splicing with wide synths washes and cyclic chants. An epic soundtrack.

Starting with ‘Nostalgia’, a perfectly stripped down dub that builds and expands along an eerie melody floating around the groove till, suddenly, interspersed with stomping percussions, the drive of the drum and the bass leads the way to eventually shake the emptiest ground…Turn the wax and you’ll be shadowed by ‘Your Suffering Is Mine’, a tool crafted to keep things just the way they should, with 909 high hats and percussion bursts waving like blades thrown by our martial autochtone; he exquisitely manages to combine layers of noisy stabs and unfamiliar horn sounds that unravel over the course of a bouncy bassline. Finally “Deleterious”, a state of the art broken B2 acid drop, with a roaring and rumbling bassline skillfully displayed with synths and ethereal voices. It establishes a primitive dialogue between sounds, giving a Bristolian feel to this cutting-edged closure.

Far from remaining Statik, we believe this new self revealed argonaut will threaten the most remote places in our eternally cherished Techno Land. Long Live to him!!!

Enjoy :


Dutch techno legend Steve Rachmad, aka STERAC, joins the Klockworks ranks with an outstanding four-track EP, set for release on June 23rd. For almost 20 years, Steve Rachmad has concentrated on the kind of melodic, grooved club tracks that DJs love, releasing on labels such as Music Man, Rejected, Tresor and Wolfskuil. Over this time, he has been responsible for some of techno’s true classics, ‘Astronotes’, ‘Asphynx’ and ‘Thera’ to name a few. The particular tracks signed by Ben Klock for KW12 draw from a number of the styles STERAC has explored over the years, and each add something else of their own. Opener ‘Track 2’ is punchy and brilliantly executed, setting the tone for the rest of the EP. It centres around coarse mid-range notes that develop throughout and bind the warm lows with high-frequency hiss. Rachmad uses a similar sound palette on ‘Rotary’, a track that featured prominently in Ben Klock’s Fabric mix CD. This time he opts for a more spacious mix, allowing the unpredictable texture of hardware to create a retro bassline sure to get any crowd moving. ‘In Circles’ is deep and moody, but with uplifting strings and a Detroit feel. The strings give ‘In Circles’ the 3-dimensional, sci-fi quality that often marks out techno of the highest order, they are bouncy but reserved in their arrangement, keeping the track’s energy in perfect balance. ‘Scheepsrecht’ ends this release in style. The producer weaves the core elements with canny arrangement and an endlessly-dynamic mix, resulting in hypnotic, hard-as-nails club gear. Bringing old-school production values up-to-date and keeping that unmistakable Dutch flavour, STERAC shows another side to the Klockworks sound. KW12 is sure to be on constant rotation amongst techno DJs of all styles, and will prove itself to be yet another essential Rachmad record.
