Petar Dundov runs his own Neumatik studio in Zagreb where he works as a sound engineer as well as producing his own take on techno, house and electronica. The album Ideas From The Pond is his most accomplished work to date and features beautifully layered techno, hypnotic rhythms and shimmering melodies that make this a real landmark release for the Croatian DJ/producer. To Dundov, "techno is music that precedes movement. It is dance music, solid enough to carry emotions through the dancefloor and abstract enough to be a template forever." And indeed, his breathtaking productions embody this ethos, serving the inherent function of making your body pulse spontaneously while also challenging your brain with its complex melodies and slow-burning, hypnotic progressions. Although maybe the word "techno" doesn't give enough detail about his style, it's probably the nearest ballpark to whose principles his music adheres -- and he is keen to expand the horizons of what people know and expect of the genre. But it's that sense of his tracks being alive, forever evolving and expanding and increasing in intensity, which gives his music its unique sound and has seen his work crossover into a myriad of different areas of the global electronic music scene. Taking the listener from the club to a tripped-out dreamscape, Ideas From The Pond brings musicality back to techno and shows that minimal doesn't need to be one-dimensional. Driving, thrilling and emotionally-charged, Ideas From The Pond is set to cross the techno/house/trance divide and become one of the essential electronic albums of 2012.
