Re­con­dite Daem­mer­licht Plan­gent Records

Future Music - - ALBUM | REVIEWS - Tom Jones

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.
