Continuing the two-part album release, Anomaly Part 2 shifts the mood and showcases its edgier, darker techno.
‘Fidenza’ by Strinner heads in a melancholy direction, layering eerie strings over minimal, deep bass. This is followed by “Voidance’ by two of Steyoyoke’s staple artists Nick Devon & Darko Milosevic, which continues the similar dark, determined tone. Shimmering piano and synths add another level of intrigue. ‘Carnal’ by Dahu then maintains this space, with a sparse, echoing track that lulls a listener into a state of peaceful trance.
The next track, ‘The Brightest Star’ by Darko Milosevic, starts from this same meditative place, but builds steadily throughout, widening the soundscape to end on a higher energy. Strinner & Arude come together to close off the album with ‘Aurora’ – a solid, high-energy number that combines layers of ethereal vocals with synths that drive the music forward, a strong and memorable end to the collection.
Anomaly Part 1 and 2 manages to combine high and low energy, dark and ethereal techno. It takes the listener on a distinct and coherent journey through the work of some of the most impressive producers in the contemporary techno scene and shows the strength of the label and its artists alike.
