Stephan Hinz paints the perfect picture of sound with his Outreach EP

Artist: Stephan Hinz
Title: Outreach EP
Label: Mood Records
Release: Out Now!
Genre: Techno

A master in the art of controlling the vibe and a man who knows just what it takes to create a memorable Techno anthem. Stephan Hinz makes his debut on Nicole Moudaber’s super label Mood Records with a dazzlingly deep Techno EP featuring 3 epic tracks straight from the depths of the Berlin underground.

The rawness of ‘Outreach’ sets the fuse for the explosion of sound to come. The deep, over-driven kick and organic, distorted hats combine with the sub frequencies which give the track that nice low-end swing. A dark stab adds extra colour and a magical ambiance adds a spectacular mysticism. This is certainly a record for those who like their Techno deep, dark and dreamy.

‘Phantom Move’ certainly has a ghostly feel. A physical manifestation of solid, energy filled sound waves, conjured to make us move. The deep, characterful drums are layered on top of a rolling sub and a thick synth line which loops in a simple, but effective progressive melody. Again, this is Techno that really captures the mind and leaves us wanting more.

‘Resonant States’ is slightly slower and features more of a grooving rhythm. Haunting strings and a vocal chop with a sizable reverb align with other elements to give off an unbelievable atmosphere. We can hear the artistry through each tiny detail. Stephan paints a picture through sound and it’s a fascinating journey we have thoroughly enjoyed.
