This is the second full-length release from Croatian DJ/producer Petar Dundov. Dundov is a producer who runs his own Neumatik studio and multimedia company where he works as a sound engineer as well as producing his own take on techno, house and electronica. Escapements is his most accomplished work to date and features beautifully layered techno, hypnotic rhythms and shimmering melodies that make this a real landmark release. The lead single "Oasis" has been remixed by Substance & Vainqueur and follow-up singles will include mixes from Detroit's Echospace, Dub Kult and DFA's Gavin Russom. His last full-length CD release was in 2001, with the ambient album Sculptures 1-3 on Jeff Mills' Tomorrow label that preceded multiple 12" releases on Music Man. Running Man brought attention back to his music and also announced the direction and concept of Escapements. Fusing hypnotic rhythms, bubbling melodies, intricate atmospheres and a soundtrack-like quality, Escapements exists in a nocturnal post-club hinterland where the bass and beats still echo through your ears as night turns into day. Taking the listener from the club to a tripped-out dreamscape, Escapements brings musicality back to techno and shows that minimal need not be one-dimensional. Driving, thrilling and emotionally-charged, Escapements is set to cross the techno/house/trance divide and become one of the essential electronic albums of 2008. The album also comes bound in a beautiful UV-varnished design with a "QR" code (next-generation barcode) printed on the packaging that leads to a hidden web site with exclusive content.
