A Walking Contradiction
"Eyes and ears forward, Sweden's Adam Beyer joins the Plus 8 ranks with a brash yet fluid techno protest. More progressive than predictable, A Walking Contradiction reflects Beyer's open-minded reaction to new sounds and further experiments for the dance floor. A fervently touring DJ, Beyer's brand of techno surpasses the Swedish sound that he's become renown for, playing a mish mash of sounds from all over the globe. The statement behind A Walking Contradiction's put to terms by Beyer as his 'schizophrenic relation with the music right now' taking issue with narrow and generalized trends in harder techno. Well aware of the risks and freedom involved with change, he notes how closing his sound off to one place in music would be a waste. 'I find the biggest progression in the scene today is more stripped down electronic stuff. This record is my contribution to it.' A Walking Contradiction free flows bandy treatments of stuttering effects into a forward blast of pulsing techno. The title aims to challenge the style and sound of Adam Beyer, a producer and DJ embracing new directions both on record and behind the decks."
