Baltimore, MD is more likely to conjure up images of cop shows and crustaceans than it would a budding techno scene. Craig Sopo and Patrick Brander, both Midwest transplants raised on a healthy dose of Detroit Techno and Chicago Acid House, are proud to bring Baltimore back to the grown folks table of electronic music with their first release on More or Less.
Shell Tone features a funky staccato synth line punctuated with choppy vocal snippets that haunt you like the voices you heard tripping in the woods. While definitely suited for 3AM face melting, Josh Dahlberg’s (Blank Artists) remix has a more subdued bassline perfect for interstate driving and mid-day raving.
Prospect Street is a nod to traditional Detroit techno, with it’s juxtaposition of minimal elements building layer upon layer until the synth pads envelope you like wet cement. Brian Kage’s (Beretta/Beretta Grey) remix tempers the track into a deep tech-house creeper that proves techno is music for the body not just the head.
