brendon moeller: works

Electric Deluxe are proud to announce the ninth studio album from dub techno purveyor Brendon Moeller. Conceived in late 2010 and inchoately developed during a spell in Amsterdam with EDLX head Jochem Paap overseeing the project, Works flaunts Moeller at the height of danceabilty while remaining true to his steeped lineage as a maker of textured, atmospheric and subaqueous electronic music. After the experimental Subterranean -- a near beatless record comprised from a single live mixdown of sounds collated over the course of a year under his Echologist moniker, Works shifts focus back to the dancefloor with a collection of propulsive techno tracks, saturated with the visceral groove that has come to define Moeller's discography. From the submerged and spacious "Writing Wrongs" and bleepy, strung-out antics of "Far Out" to the house-kissed "Take A Dive Into The Sound" and darker, chugging cuts that close Works, the album pools together the threads of a prolific production history, spanning almost two decades, into a single succinct album. With a particular nod to his other Beat Pharmacy alias -- affiliated exclusively with François K's Deep Space Media label and New York party -- Moeller's expansive output has fused dub and techno with jazz, Afrobeat and psychedelic pastiches to carry on as much as refashion the Basic Channel heritage into his own distinctive patois. But what makes Works a truly unique product is Paap's influence over the record. "Off The Grid," "Wanderer" and "Adjust To The Fading Light" are as some of the toughest bass-driven efforts from Moeller to date, balancing some of the album's brighter tracks like "In Pursuit" with techno's pounding, industrial heartbeat. The result is an eclectic imagining of the genre, showing the many sides and emotions of techno, and Moeller himself.
