Vector Lovers – Raumklang

...sleek beats speeding through the night

Techno may have sparked to life in Detroit, but it was the Motor City’s uber-efficient competitors from Germany who have developed it into today’s autobahn-blazing automobile.

This is why all good techno should have a Teutonic connection and Raumklang, by UK producer Martin Wheeler, name-checks a German record label. The track’s minimal effects clear the way for the sleek beats speeding through the night, with blips and bloops flashing by like flickering cat’s eyes. When Jeremy Clarkson straps himself into to test drive the first flying car, this should become the new Top Gear soundtrack.
