Ancient Methods Live (Downwards/AM, Berlin)

  • Building on stints at Tresor and Hardwax in the late 90s, Ancient Methods was formed in 2005, with marbled vinyl releases on the eponymous label commencing in 2007 and continuing to be rolled out consistently up to the present day. Collaborations with Regis (Sandwell District) led to the well-received "Ugandan Methods" releases on Downwards and AM. Other notable releases and remixes have surfaced on labels such as Perc Trax, Sonic Groove, RSB, Prosthetic Pressings, and Fondation Sonore. Ever since its inception, the project has fuelled a diverse movement within the electronic music scene, breaking free of the zeitgeist, with an immeasurable global impact on listeners, DJs, and producers. To put it simply, the sound represents Techno at its visceral best. "an energy that is barely contained, an aural evocation of the moment before a fallen power line hits the ground and sparks go flying" – Resident Advisor "beats are sophisticated, syncopated and polyrhythmic, full of squashed breaks and the kind of broken tunnelist grooves so beloved of Berghain and its residents" – FACT Magazine "music that's as engaging as it is uncompromising" – Little White Earbuds "raw and powerful, without sacrificing quality or care" – mnml ssgs
