Driftmachine is the project that involves Andreas Gerth (Tied & Tickled Trio) e Florian Zimmer (Saroos). One year later Eis Heauton EP, the German duo have released a new album. Colliding Contours is out now via Umor Rex. They are also launching the repress of their stunning debut Nocturnes, originally released in June 2014. Watch the official video for the track “To Nowhere part. 2″, a collaboration with Austrian avant-garde filmmaker Peter Tscherkassky. Driftmachine‘s score serves as accompaniment to his 1985 handcrafted film Manufracture.
Berlin-based duo Driftmachine returns with another striking piece of music. “Colliding Contours” is a shape-shifting album made from kosmische, dub, Industrial and Avant-garde elements. It’s all held together by tense grooves and a post-club, eerie electronic atmosphere.
The latest work of Driftmachine offers a complex dialogue between genres and music styles, transcending the familiar by generating a peculiar mood through its unique take on modular synthesis and its obsessive bass-structures and detailed rhythmic patterns. Within the haunted electronic spaces of “Colliding Contours” one can find a geometry made of dub, jazz and industrial techno lines, intersecting at ominous intervals; an unsettling companion for a late night trip or a tangled state of mind.
