German icon Stephan Bodzin is globally recognised on a number of fronts – his live show is one of techno’s most celebrated, his productions constantly push the genre forward with his own trademark sound. He has put out well-received solo long players Liebe Ist and Powers of Ten as well as worked on many other iconic projects under a range of aliases. Next up is a new solo project, but not before this huge new single.
‘Boavista’ brings together dreamlike soundscapes with crisp drum programming and a highly emotive, grizzly bassline. Artist on the rise Innellea steps in with a rework, adding more drama, tension and a pervasive melancholy atmosphere. For digital consumers, an exclusive ‘synthapella’ strips Bodzin’s composition down to the bare bones, focused purely on the synth arrangement. Beautiful.
Definitely is good news that Live techno virtuoso, Stephan Bodzin, returns to Afterlife with this mesmerising release.This is a great taster of what is to come from the full length in October.
