The term of Wunderblock is related to the concept by Siegmund Freud from his work “Notiz über den “Wunderblock” (1925). Freud regarded the Wunderblock as a perfect metaphor for the process of recording memories. According to Freud, the mind records memories continually receiving stimuli and transferring traces of that information to the unconscious to be stored as memories.

Wunderblock is an experimental techno project from Moscow, Russia. Three masterminds met up to create something new, all adding their different spice to the soup. Michael Teploff is known from the late 90's for his Ill Doggy project (Salo Records, Berlin), and as one half of Multipliar (together with Anton Kubikov a.k.a. SCSI-9 on the infamous Cologne imprint Trapez). In 2008 Michael has teamed up with producers Igor Ivanov and Vladimir Kochenov to push his own limits.
In 2013 Wunderblock Records label was launched, and now it’s fully packed with high quality underground techno releases, vinyl [WRLTD] and digital [WR], that are supported by top techno DJ’s worldwide.
