WMC Preview: Stimming


Hamburg-based producer Stimming has been making waves in the elite minimal community with a series of highly distinctive and phenomenally funky releases on his hometown's Diynamic label. Both a trained classical musician and certified audio engineer, his mind-boggling productions defy the stereotypes of techno and the very parameters of dance music itself.

He achieves a surprisingly organic sound in the guise of techno,

interweaving world instruments, fluid analog textures and pleasantly

unexpected samples, such as a decades-old acoustic recording of Chilean

folk singer Violeta Parra on "Una Pena". Other tracks, like "Radar"

(produced in collaboration with labelmate H.O.S.H.) sound like nothing

you have ever heard in this world, literally --some sort of

Gieger-esque biomechanical sex monster coming to life in the form of a

dance beat.

This is supremely imaginative and witty music that

nevertheless stays grounded on the simple formula of making you wanna

groove your ass off. Stimming has a few shows lined up for WMC that you

will not miss if you want to see the true EDM avant-garde in action.
