Recondite Daemmerlicht Plangent Records
Bavarian techno producer Lorenz Brunner’s fifth studio album is his most expansive, diverse work to date. Out on his own Plangent Records,
Daemmerlicht, which translates as Fading Light, finds the contemplative German moving into new territory. On his first record since 2015’s
Placid, Brunner adds his love of instrumental hip-hop, ambient, downbeat and classical music to his usual palette of sparse, melodic techno. His use of space is key to
Daemmerlicht, creating a highly atmospheric sound, full of suspense. Each sound is given room. The result is an immersive composition that explores haunting, meditative and reflective soundscapes that take you on a drifting, meandering journey. Spacey pads stretch beneath spine-tingling synths, jangling melodies and warm, deep bass as Brunner creates a sophisticated record that simmers with beauty and a cinematic aesthetic. Escaping the boundaries of minimal techno, Recondite flourishes once again, bringing his ear for melody and drama to the fore with this fascinating and intimate album.
