Traversable Wormhole - The Remixes Vol 1 (Marcel Dettmann & Peter Van Hoesen) [CLR]

In 2009 Traversable Wormhole released a series of 5 anonymously produced ink stamped vinyls which found their way on to the underground techno scene, into stores like Hardwax and and into the boxes of techno's big names.

We was so impressed with them at Slash Dot Dash we tracked him down and flew him over to perform his live show at our relaunch. A UK first no less. He also impressed Chris Liebing who signed him to his CLR imprint and has been lining up a string of techno's biggest names to remix the 5 releases. The first EP to reach the light of day contains possibly the biggest name in techno in the world right now, Marcel Dettmann and Time To Express head man, Peter Van Hoesen.

Dettmann's 'Closed Timeline Curve' remix is built for Berghain. Driving rhythms over the top over a thumping kick. Has the feel of his his work with Shed under the Deuce alias. Van Hoesen's 'When 2D Meets 3D' is a much more minimalistic creation that drifts along hypnotising as you go. Check them out for yourself

Now normally 2 heavyweights like this would be enough for a remix project. But CLR are releasing a different EP every month after this first one with remixes from Surgeon, Sleeparchive, Function, Speedy J, Terrence Fixmer and Liebing himself. This is just the start of a very exciting run up to xmas!
