RELEASE | Speedy & Steve EP on Mote-Evolver
Speedy J and Steve Rachmad joined forces as Speedy & Steve for a four-track techno EP on Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver.
The two artists have long been defining the techno underground with seminal tunes on a range of influential labels. For their new release, the duo jammed in Speedy’s studio for their new release, working the live results into four fresh and powerful new tracks, kicking off a new series of live collaborations on Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver.
The intense and textural ‘Reddo’ kicks off with industrial synth lines designed for maximum warehouse impact before ‘Dabler Nine’ brings its deep rolling drums and mind-melting synth lines late into the night. ‘Right Well and Clean’ has fresh, airy kick drums rolling beneath harsh and icy hi-hats before ‘Rotor’ closes the release in cosmic fashion with spiralling pads and intensely layered synths and drums.

The two Dutchmen have been shaping the techno underground for a long time. For their new release, the duo jammed at Speedy J’s studio and processed the live results into four new tracks. It’s said to be the start of a new series of live collaborations on Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver. Each upcoming EP aims to capture the creative moment as it happens and bring the results straight to the dance floor. Also, each release in the series has artwork in a specific style that combines an item from each artist they care about into a new image. It will be interesting to see what else awaits us from the two in the coming months.
