Madteo, Vinalog (a.k.a. EMG and John Swing) and Third Side have remixed Xenogears’ “Multiverse”. Xenogears is the name of the first studio project of Marieu and Lucretio, also known as The Analogue Cops. With this moniker they released a bunch of seminal techno cuts on the first chapters of their Restoration imprint, back in 2007.
Now, the Xenogears are back and a full album titled “Lost Artemis” will be released in spring 2014 featuring their distinctive fast minimalistic, Detroit-inspired and machines-driven Techno . “Multiverse” is the single choosen to transmit the sound of their forthcoming album, which will also features collaborations with their “Bratha” No Mad Ronin and the talented producer known as Objekt.

Credits: It’s easy to come across many techno albums which contain neither a true vision nor a concept these days. However, throughout the last three years, the Berlin sound has witnessed a revival in both method and sound aesthetic. This is largely thanks to the work of a specific cohort of artists which have recalled on past principles and methods to push things forward in the aim of creating new and original frameworks for electronic dance music. At the centre of this limited group are the hardware radicalists known as the Analogue Cops and Steffi, the passionate heart behind Dolly and Klakson. Their unification in the studio has given us some of the best productions of the past year and this latest LP serves as both a proclamation of their shared love for the analogue sound and as a breath of fresh air for techno.
