Over two decades have passed between Juan Atkins and Moritz von Oswald's first collaboration in the early 90s, the classic LP 3MB Feat. Magic Juan Atkins (with Thomas Fehlmann), and their acclaimed artistic reunion in 2013. In that period, their status as techno luminaries was unequivocally cemented, and the music they gathered in their album Borderland reflected an hard-earned sense of mature virtuosity.
Last year they released their second album together, Transport, and now they're back with a two-song single on Tresor entitled Angles. It finds the duo exploring subtle new counters of their sound, as exemplified by the luxuriant dub techno of lead track "Concave 1." Balancing endorphin-pumping beats with fluttering ambiance, the tune is adaptable to the listener's mood: it can offer some daydream-like respite, or be plugged into as a form of jacking psychedelia.
