Stefan Tretau returns with his first release in 2016 presenting a very versatile EP on his own label ST Records. Including banging techno tracks and tech-house beats as well as melodic downbeat and experimental-chillout, this release invites you to a sonic adventure.

This adventure, however, does not want to be experienced only for the duration of a moment, but asks for a concentration on the ongoing moment. This continuous recurring flow of the specific and unforeseen is the starting point of this EP. Thanks to its catchy rhythm and functional character “Purified Content" makes it easier for the listener to enter a timepiece that is comparable to the rhythm demanding entry into a musical night.

It is "Interference on the Rebound" that continues with a merger of the inner world. It sets the world or rather perceives it as reality itself and makes the flowing movement not only to an abstract moment, but a period of time. "Particles" presupposes an awareness of the present´s transience. If you let your inner eye look out of the window you may see the guide posts at an rhythmic interval just as if they had divided our time into units. A track that pushes the possibility of all events completely into the background.

“Staring at Histerics" is like a reversed blueprint of our restless present time. Like a solution this track focusses on the physicality and spatiality of the listener, until the organical crackling ending finds a milieu-like transition to the world-closing track "Bijou". Here it dissolves itself, the resonance between the subject and the world, and you may hope to completely escape from the current acceleratorism with its feasible fantasies.
