“My goal was to chase the energy that appears when playing around with hardware only, in contrast to designing’ a track in the box, which, after so many years, I found myself to be tired of, the immediacy and playfulness from a hardware-only techno livejam is a different type of energy. It’s not as precise and on-point like the “riser, noise and drop” mechanics but has more of a long-term, evolving energy that is aimed at listeners and dancers that understand techno more as a journey instead of a “closely guided freak out” – Stimming 

We have the exclusive first play of “People Do”, a raw, organic house influenced cut from Stimming‘s new incredible body of work “Elderberry”, released on pioneering imprint Awesome Soundwave:

At the heart of the Awesome Soundwave project is a dedication to live and innovative music and in their latest release, master of his craft Stimming showcases an all hardware LP that goes by the name of – “Elderberry”. Experience distinct atmospheres from beginning to end as Stimming steers you on a journey of ethereal techno, melding genres as he moves blissfully between the ten tracks.

For this enriched album Stimming decided to take a new approach to his production utilising hardware only embracing the challenges that it comes with but simultaneously the never ending outcomes as a musician. When stepping out of the box amazing things happen and Stimming tries to elevate this inspiration and funnel that into the “Elderberry” exploration, using machines such as blackbox/bluebox, intech controller, DOCtron IMC and various other gera throughout the tracks. Minimal editing was made on a computer at the end to condense arrangements. 

A match made in heaven as Awesome Soundwave and Stimming meet, both aspiring to deliver timeless music and fresh and original ways and “Elderberry” is just that, embodying the ethos of both the label and artist.
