1. Torsten Fassbender – ‘Skuchayu’
2. Torsten Fassbender – ‘Luna’
Berlin-based Torsten Fassbender aka Wellenrausch / Kymatik has been creating music for over 35 years, producing and remixing for luminaries such as Markus Schulz, Gai Barone, Basil O’Glue, The Thrillseekers, Andy Moor and Blank & Jones to name but a few. Torsten is also a highly respected sound designer for audio titans Waves Audio and Native Instruments.
Both ‘Skuchayu’ and ‘Luna’ represent a fresh direction for Torsten and consequently will be his debut release under his own name.
‘Skuchayu’ is a slowly evolving, brooding slice of emotive melodic techno at it’s finest. Heavily effected arpeggiated synth pulses defy gravity allowing harmonic frequencies to be gently bathed in warm shards of light from the heavens.
A driving syncopated bassline in ‘Luna’ introduces a darker flip side to ‘Skuchaya’. Reverb-laden synth chords transition to a semi-acidic synth riff, stepping up proceedings to a self-assured cantor from the steely moon-horse. Piano and violas provide temporary respite to settle the nerves, before the Fassbender cracks the ultimate whip.
