Traum Schallplatten | Chapter24 Records | Kamai Music
Melodic Techno | Berlin
Berlin based dj and producer Robin Schellenberg
just released his new production for the labels Lukins and Chapter24 Records.
Describing the sound, sonics and aesthetic of Robin Schellenberg’s music, one could tend easily to use bold headlines as „Melodic Techno“ or „Deep House“ with a love for „Downtempo“ – but there is more to it: in between the kicks, the free forming patterns and tracks, it becomes alive and spans vividly over these genres. His productions oscillate between a soft dystopian void full of sweeping build up’s, that drift endlessly into an infinite sky, twisting from a warm unisono into harsher electronics, to break down into perfectly saturated beats, that house themselves in the mid-tempo field, referencing minimal grooves from contemporary downbeat productions. Even ifwe are not taking about dark techno here, Robin loves its aesthetic and manages to translate them into his music, without drifting into cold industrial repetition – it’s more a deep yearning for the horizon, pulling the dancer forward with soft melancholy. In his DJ-Set’s he brings all these parts together, roaming from 110 – 126 bpm, blending organic downbeat with heavy sweeping bangers, to slowly lead his dancefloor into a sweet and endless decay.
