Techno comes in all shapes and sizes, and few recent outfits embody that truth more obviously than Berlin's Barker & Baumecker. One operates as Barker/Voltek and the other as nd_baumecker. Both solo projects exhibit unconventional takes on techno inflected by the influence of other genres, from glitch to dubstep to ambient and beyond. Judging from their output so far on Ostgut Ton, one gets the idea that these fellows know a lot about electronic music; their label debut Candyflip was a 9-minute opus spelled out in broken beats and trance-like tones, the kind of track that seems to reference a million different things in one coherent, confident statement. On the double vinyl version, the tracks have been mastered and positioned for maximum analog audio performance.
