Put on the circuit on March 23rd via the well experimental and adventurous Clang imprint is "4040", the new album by Swedish artist Marcus Wrangö released under his production alias Wavemultiplier. As one already was able to guess from a little teaser video that announced the release by serving some excellent 96 seconds of BrokenTechno, the album's seven tracks focus exactly on this kind of sound - darkish, dry and defo referring to the magic of technoid primetime dancefloors but with a more complex twist, stripped down, stumbling grooves and a feel of compression going a little too far, causing frequency flutters and crackling, decaying textures uncommon for this kind of Techno music. Imagine the mesmerizing feel of Traversable Wormhole-productions amalgamated with the clean, uberly compressed Industrial aesthetics of Pan Sonic ca. 1999 / 2000 and you'll find what "4040" is all about - pure latenight dancefloor devastation. Get.
