HOLY MOLY! The Advent are techno pioneers from the early 90s, leading the charge of Berlin techno that simply crushes & pounds you. They're still doing it today, thanks to Cari Lekebusch's label H-Productions. With 20 years in the biz, the Advent shows all you young kids exactly how it's done. There are some new-ish twists & effects to this material, but for the most part, the Advent are all about hard-punishing beats and wall-to-wall sound. None of that trendy "minimal" stuff. All tracks are phenomenal and harken to a day when warehouses would rumble. My favorites are 2,4,5,8,9.
1. 80's style synth soundtrack straight out of "Blade Runner". No beats, just massive retro-style synths. Awesome.
2. Whoa! The techno begins. Wall-to-wall thumping. Meaty goodness that has timely breakdowns and buildups.
3. Cari Lekebusch lends a hand - a signature dark & atmospheric techno banger with a spaced-out ambience.
4. Murderously heavy. Percussive effects rattling in your head as it is pounded to the pavement.
5. Disco-fied techno? Techno-fied disco? Doesn't matter. It's funky and yet brutal at the same time. Comes out like a hard house track but it's good.
6. Brutal techno. A lot of cut-up breaks and rough & tumble effects. You must submit to the chaos.
7. Chugga-chugga Johnny Fiasco-style house flavor but with a distinctly techno heaviness.
8. Harshness that borders on industrial, but with a bubbly glassy synth reminiscent of Kraftwerk. Somehow this is old-school, but the punishment is all new-school.
9. Sinister speech, goes into retro acid breakbeats, like an old-school rave track with Miami-bass beats. Gotta love the video-game tones. It's like a bunch of techno legends showing the new kids how to party.
