Tectonic plates shift beneath the earth’s outer core. Massive layers of solid rock drift and groan endlessly over a scorching sea of magma, forming patterns of earth, like crests of ice on the surface of a burning lake.
Where plates meet, rock and rock collide. Occasionally, fissures form: direct portals into the blazing ocean of molten metal that gave us life; a glimpse into the fiery depths.
Patterns of Perception
Ben Buitendijk (ESHU Records, NL)
Tom Liem (ESHU Records, NL)
No boundaries for genres or styles, but characterized by a distinctive taste, Ben Buitendijk takes the listener on a journey, a balance between music for the dancefloor and music for the mind. His sets and his productions are usually defined by the deeper side of the spectrum of techno.
Psychedelic and funky, Tom Liem's tracks are like short stories in which he passes on the wisdoms, fooleries and mysteries of his life. Meditations on life and existence, yet with powerful grooves and precise tunes, to hit on every nerve and never skip a beat. On the dancefloor, this Shaolin DJ/producer builds scapes of sound that you want to be with.
