Electronic house music is something that should seem alien to those who wear Audemars Piguet so when they announced a project with Surkin from Gener8ion, it seemed like a mismatch. But in the end, the collaboration turned out to be really cool. He spent a couple of days in Le Brassus and Vallée de Joux recording the sounds in and around the manufacture. “When you get there, there are places that are really silent, but then there are areas where they are polishing and working with metal and it can get quite loud so that was surprising,” he says. Surkin later turned what he had captured into four sublime tracks. “The weather was changing so quick, like in a day in Le Brassus, you could have like four different seasons. And I really wanted to convey that in the tracks,” he adds.
