Let\’s meet the duo Edge Of Motion, and for this we need to go back and remember when techno was all about creating the soundtrack for the future, and when there were no borders between styles or scenes, when your favourite records were just white label vinyl, stamped with cryptic names. 

This was exactly around the time Edge of Motion first made their mark on electronic music. Even now, decades after they first burst on the scene, seminal tracks like Set Up 707 and albums like Planet Gong Realities and Ad Hoc are still frequently played by techno’s most revered selectors.

Now, the duo presents their 3rd full album since 1998. The new LP features 15 new amazing ambient tracks and has been entitled \’Revolting Angels\’

This album represents a collection of dark ambient electronica in the league of Lustmord, Abul Morgard, Steve Roach amongst others. Buckle up and immerse into the deepest darkest voids.

Edge Of Motion will release \’Revolting Angels\’ digitally on July 31st, 2020.

Berlin is always on the edge of innovation and good performances, Function sophomore solo album, due out on Tresor label on November 29th. \”Existenz\” will be premiered live A/V at Atonal on Sunday this weekend, followed by an extensive tour between Europe, Georgia – as Bassiani resident, Japan, Australia and US. Please find all the details of the tour below.

Made of recordings between 2016–2019, \”Existenz\” is a step away from the corporeal techno of the last years, as a reaction to traumas Function had during all his life. \”Existenz\” is about religion, sexuality, healing, and liberation. \”Existenz\” features collaborative tracks with house icon Robert Owens. \”Existenz\” is following Function solo album debut out via Ostgut Ton back in 2013, and an album in collaboration with Vatican Shadow via Hospital production in the following year. 

Impressed by pop art, rave and gay scenes, and early memories of block-parties in New York, Function founded the seminal Infrastructure label back in 1998 and has been a regular collaborator with legends like Regis and Damon Wild, releasing also on their labels Downwards and Synewave since the early days. 

He is now collaborating with London\’s techno milestones Luke Slater and Steve Bicknell for their LSD project. Together with Regis and Silent Servant, Function is one of the founding members of the legendary Sandwell District collective. 

Overview. The American cable-television industry exploded in the 1980s, pushing broadcasts of diverse programming and emissions of low-laying cultures into homes. 
Community stations piggybacked on the digital developments of the time, extending their existence through telephony and broadcast affiliates. For those growing up in this time, in locations such as New York City, the localized communications beamed into their homes exposed them to an impressionable array of disparate sounds and visions. Move into the 1990s and New York was filled to the brim of emergent cultures drawing from this ebullition of communication. From Rammellzee’s shapeshifting to the late Judy Russell and Frank and Karen Mendez’s Nu Groove imprint fusing reggae, poetry and house, nascent ideas emanated from the city walls, from within stores such as Sonic Groove store and on VHS releases such as Stakker’s The Evil Acid Baron Show, a legendary technicolor psychedelic trip along the wildest frontiers of acid house. As scenes expanded and identities developed, such individuals weather the events of the visceral now, expressing themselves right into an unpredictable future.
Function’s long career has seen him uncover a vast range of sonic identities, a mainstay through house, techno and industrial with collaborations with the likes of Regis, Damon Wild alongside his highly influential Infrastructure imprint. With influences deeply tied to pop art, rave and gay scenes, and early memories of block-parties emitting Kraftwerk and Strafe, he found himself seeking out the undercover illegal nights of the 90s on a quest of sexual unearthing, mixing the ever-yearning escapology mission of disco with the influential DJ sets of Jeff Mills. For his new album Existenz, he marks a clear step away from the corporeal techno of his recent releases. Pivoting around themes of religion, sexuality, trauma and healing, it is a work expansive and celebratory, a clear liberation from a deeply internalized past. Formed from a collection of recordings made in a period from late 2016 to mid 2019, Existenz takes the form of a creative outburst in reaction to a number of traumas – recent, childhood and throughout Function’s life. Life partner Stefanie Parnow assisted the production process in its entirety, providing inspiration, spiritual healing and featuring vocal contributions.
Cosmic synths soar and swoop in ‘Pleasure Discipline’ through towering stacks of rhythm that stutter and creak to a halt before rebooting, a firm robotic response to human intervention. ‘Zahlensender’ reflects a spatial tetris of urban life, as digitalization set within an XYZ matrix confronts the sprawling city. Constant arpeggiated meditations echo synaptic transmissions, effecting a dissolution of boundaries. ’The Approach’ recalls the unification of the self, a state of delirium non-subjective and smooth, as all connections and functions give way to simple intensities of feeling, crossing the threshold into spirituality. ’Golden Dawn’, featuring Stefanie Parnow, marks a further elevation of dubbed-out euphoria, as once more positive rays emerge. His ode to the effortless short-trip urban navigation ‘Kurzstrecke’ finds Function in motion, upfront and bold, snapshots of conversation and flickers of light. ‘Ertrinken’ finds metallic bass jabs swamping snipped synthetic voices, with hidden stores of emotion set as a nod to the history of vocoders as a tool for encrypted military communication. House icon Robert Owens features on ‘Growth Cycle’ and ‘Be’, entrenching a celebratory atmosphere over Function’s clubwise leanings. Closing track ‘Downtown 161’ reflects the unmistakeable filtered and squashed interjections of television, and sampled dance vocals – a sound for the curious, dreamers and dancers.
With Existenz, Function reveals an essential body of work, spread over 4LP/2CD – thought experiments on the role of identity and spirituality after a lifetime of upheaval and trauma. Leading up until the release date, Function will undertake an album promo tour with select dates – A/V shows at Berlin Atonal and Rural festival in Japan, and three dates as part of his Bassiani residency.

\”For this month\’s Excentric Muzik Session, Fergie presents four world-exclusive guest mixes showcasing the sounds of the DJs and producers that have been rocking his world on a regular basis; RESET ROBOT, ARJUN VAGALE, MATADOR and MR HENRY VON. Look out for Arjun\’s tracks \”Drohnen\” and \”Tin Kan\” which are both out now on the Excentric Muzik label and as always don\’t forget to hit up Ferg on his Facebook or Twitter and let him know what you thought of the show…\”


Biography of Fergie:

Fergie (aka Robert Ferguson), a DJ of international standing for the past decade, has never had a stronger and more vibrant aural identity. Playing the kind of music he wants, determined not to be held back by perceptions and tags from the past, he continues to be a global representative for electronic music by consistently breaking down underground barriers and bringing new music to the people, without compromise. There is no doubt that Fergie has ?rmly re-established himself as a producer of innovative exciting music that really takes a hold of you. Having dedicated himself to the studio and totally immersing himself in his passion for music, this has been a true labour of love for Fergie:

”I just wanted to go back and take time to rediscover what the music meant to me; how it made me feel, the buzz, the excitement. To ?nd a sound that would re?ect my individuality as a DJ and producer and in some way to recapture all of that in my productions” (Fergie).

Clearly he has found his sound and the results are very evident in the free ?ow of original productions and remixes being consistently supported by the likes of Sasha, John Digweed, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Slam, Umek, James Lavelle and Hell amongst many others. Underground cuts that blur genre divides have ?rmly established him as a proven seal of production quality. Tracks like “Maktub”, which picked up incomparable support in 2009 and was found in Richie Hawtin\’s Essential Mix live from the Exit Festival as well as him starting sets with it throughout that summer. Carl Cox, one of Fergie\’s biggest supporters of late (describing Excentric Muzik as his label of 2008) licensed it for 2 of his compilations that year (Global Underground “Black Rock Desert\’ and “Carl Cox…At Space”). The track also received heavy duty support from Dub?re, Gregor Tresher, Umek and Phil Kieran amongst many others, all regularly found championing the Fergie sound. There\’s the Fergie remixes of “Umek – Gatex” and “Slam – Positive Education” remixes that have achieved legendary status amongst fans and still demand huge interest on Youtube and download sites. Both started out as exclusives for him to play at his Shine (Belfast) and Pressure (Glasgow) gigs respectively, although it was clear from the initial reactions they could not be left unreleased. His studio output has shown no signs of slowing down, recent hits “Konguro”, “Motion” and “Slazenger” have picked up deserved praise and all climbed high in the Beatport charts. Fergie\’s third remix of King Unique (of “Feniksas” on John Digweed\’s Bedrock label) has been one of the key tracks of the year so far. A second remix for James Lavelle\’s U.N.K.L.E. project will be released this year and will see Fergie return to Jame\’s Surrender All label, following up 2009\’s massive “Trouble In Paradise” remix. Autumn 2010 will see the release of Fergie\’s debut album “Dynamite & Lazerbeams” that promises to be something just a little bit special….

Fergie\’s ever growing “Excentric Muzik” label has been the home for the majority of his original productions and a place where he\’s been able to fully put into place his unconventional ideas whether that be re-releasing tracks that for him were where it all began (Salt City Orchestra – The Book), commissioning 20 remixes for his 2009 “Rewired” project (including Slam, Umek, King Unique and Pig & Dan) or unearthing new talent and giving them the spotlight (Spektre, Alan Fitzpatrick, Reset Robot, Psycatron & Erphun have all remixed Fergie productions before going on to achieving success elsewhere). “Rekluse”, the Excentric Muzik off-shoot run by Fergie together with Henry Von has proved to be something special, focussing on a distinct European Techno sound and developing into something quite unique, leading Carl Cox to describe Rekluse as “de?nitely one of my fav labels of the year”. 2010 will see the release of a third label from the Excentric camp, “Tribal Rage” will focus on a slightly deeper, groovier tip. With sets in no less than 25 different countries in 2009 (and gigs as far a?eld as Japan, Mexico, Thailand, Russia, South Korea plus tours of South America and Australasia) Fergie continues to be one of the most in-demand DJs in the world. Regular haunts include the track title inspiring “Exit Club” (Kaunas, Lithuania), “Shine” and “The Stiff Kitten” (Belfast, UK), Slam\’s monthly club night “Pressure” (Glasgow, UK), “Fire?y” (Nottingham, UK) where Fergie is the only guest DJ to have played in every single venue they have ever used, “Crawdaddy” at “The Tripod” (Dublin, Ireland) which hosted a summer Excentric party last year, as well as Circus (Liverpool, UK), Rex Club (Paris, France), Bahrein (Buenos Aires, Argentina), D-Edge (Sao Paulo, Brazil) and not forgetting the Miami Winter conference and Sonar festival. But it all started in Northern Ireland where Robert Ferguson, as his passport dubs him, grew up. His ?rst day of secondary school would see him donning a Walkman instead of putting up with his teacher\’s voice, and for the next three years he would spend more time outside the headmaster\’s of?ce than in the classroom. At the age of 13 he ?nally left the school system and embarked on the passion that had engulfed him, embracing music headlong and becoming a DJ. This was to become a mercurial move that would lead to international DJ status and a coveted show on Radio 1.

Growing up as part of the Northern Irish rave scene and being a witness to events such as the iconic Hellraiser raves at the Ulster Hall in Belfast, where he got his ?rst taste of international DJs such as Carl Cox and Pablo Gargano, con?rmed the direction in which his music was to go. “It was the harder edge of the music that really caught me, just the full on driving energy of it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand on edge.” (Fergie) – Tony De Vit later took Fergie under his wing, starting him on a journey that eventually led to his own slot on Radio 1 where he championed the sounds of the underground on mainstream radio, long before minimal techno became the “du jour” genre for DJs. At only 21 he found himself presenting live shows from Skol Beats (Brazil), Love Parade (Berlin), Meganite (Ibiza), the Miami Winter Music Conference and not one to forget where he came from he brought his very ?rst live Radio 1 show back to Northern Ireland. The show ran for 5 years and developed into a snapshot of what was going on in the underground electronic music scene. Guests included Richie Hawtin, Sven Vath, Dave Clarke and Phil Kieran (who both covered the show in Fergie\’s absence), Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, as well as providing a platform for many aspiring producers and DJs to show what they had to offer… the likes of Kev Gorman (Gigolo), Anderson Noise (Noise Music), Matt Tolfrey (Leftroom) and Dave Robertson (aka Reset Robot) all received some of their prominent initial exposure through Fergie\’s show. A proven forward thinker, constantly developing and never standing still, the architect of an ever evolving sound by keeping one step ahead of the rest, he has never forgotten though that it\’s still just a rave. A place where people are trying to escape the realities of urban life each and every weekend, and is where he hopes to catch up with you very soon…
