Six years after their debut album Future and four years since the last 12" Errorist, Artist Unknown, Germany's cloak-and-dagger electro project is now releasing on Anthony Rother's Datapunk label, which is currently expanding its content of electro music in all directions, like no other platform at this time. Artist Unknown veils itself in secrecy, owning to pilgrim travels in Kathmandu, guitar roadie performances for Oasis and performances at video stores in Turku as its recent meanderings. In terms of music, Present displays a complete mix of references: the dogmatic proto-EBM of Conny Plank (producer for DAF, Kraftwerk, Neu! and Ultravox, among others), and cultivated electro-class blueprints as well as the narrative Chicago sound of Cajmere/Green Velvet, along with the usual Artist Unknown bleepy, squelchy electro traditions. The result is a new uncompromising headstrong album that leaves all established models and borders of current music electronics behind. Soundtrack meets bodyrock. Song structures search for counter-deconstructive compositions. Songs like "The Happy Days" and "Demons & Girls" evoke love and coldness, melody and madness in equal measure. Future was then -- Present is now!
