Coils 05:52


Maral Salmassi and D Func. aka Alexander Kowalski come together to celebrate their comeback onKonsequent Records - Maral’s first record label launched in 1997 in Cologne. In the early years,Konsequent was home to some of the first releases by Alexander Kowalski who was signed at the tenderage of 20, starting to release under the names D Func and DisX3 on Konsequent Records and Tresor inthe 90s.

This release is also a celebration of their techno music background, rooted deep in the 90s but flavouredwith hints of more contemporary dark ambient vibes and comes with two remixes by the UK technodoyens Mark Broom and Inigo Kennedy.

The title track Coils showcases both artists’ hallmarks - Kowalski’s big drums and rolling bass paired withSalmassi’s playful synth modulation and expert layering.

The second track - Patter Abstraction is a hypnotic anthem with a fluid synth motif - exploring the darkerrealms of sci-fi techno. It balances sturdiness and introspection, unleashing the energy of the chordsgradually riding the heavy groove, fitting the track into a dramatic structure arrangement with greattension.

Inigo Kennedy - known for his methodically surgical approach - upholds his reputation and abstracts“Pattern Abstraction" beyond recognition. Fragments of the original sample wend around the kick andspitting snares - diving up and down in granular haze - building up neatly to peak in an epic soul shatteringspiral breakdown.

Mark Broom’s remix of “Coils” has a more old school vibe- masterfully stripping down the original to itsskeleton, pairing the heavy rolling 909 drums and toms with a classic four-on-the-floor clap pattern,garnished with fragments of the original synth sample.
