Elektro Guzzi have been called many names: man-machine, clockwork, techno organism, but above all, the three Austrian wizards have become the preeminent techno band. A trio of guitar, bass, and drums, they play murder beats with the drive of a machine and sonic detail only physical instruments are capable producing. The unparalleled appeal of matching sound and physical performance in real time -- you see how every sound is created, right there, on the spot -- have made them a primary choice for cutting-edge festivals like Roskilde, Sónar, Mutek, Melt!, Stop Making Sense, C/O Pop, Eurosonic, Extrema, Airwaves, Sziget, Dancity, Spring Festival, and a long list of others across Europe, North and Latin America, and Japan. They have also conquered the club circuit, from Berghain to Fabric to Arma17. Originally released as a cassette by The Tapeworm in 2013 (TTW 056CS), Circling Above features the Austrian techno wonder locking into two "Circle"s and one essential addition. Tight as ever, in deep explorations of the long form. Rich on texture, all the little timbral strokes make for a continuous push down the bass-heavy techno rabbit hole. The result is nowhere close to a loose jam, but renders a concentrated display of musical swarm logic. Intimate, thrusting, circular.
