With his releases for Innervisions, Perlon and Macro, Stefan Goldmann has been a key figure at the cutting-edge of post-minimal techno and the renewal of house music. With The Transitory State, he finally unleashes his highly-anticipated debut CD. Two separate albums in one package -- a double whammy with benchmark club tracks on CD1 and electro-acoustic avant-garde tracks on CD2. CD1 features some of today's most significant underground anthems, including "Sleepy Hollow" and "Lunatic Fringe" -- both voted top 10 tracks of the year in polls by Groove, Resident Advisor and De:Bug, seriously crossing boundaries with heavy DJ support all across the board, from Richie Hawtin to Carl Craig to Laurent Garnier to Gilles Peterson. The entire collection ranges from the lush after-hour bliss of "Prefecture," to the dark modernism of "Blood," to peak-time frenzy with "The Bribe." All tracks have been carefully edited exclusively for this release by the artist and six appear on CD for the first time ever, thus adding brand new and previously-unreleased tracks and parts. CD2 contains the album Voices Of The Dead, which will also be released as a limited edition 5x7" vinyl box set. Starting a trilogy of concept albums, Stefan Goldmann searches for the common root of all music in an electro-acoustic setting. From this album, "Turret" is already renowned as the intro sequence of Richie Hawtin's groundbreaking DE9 Transitions mix compilation. The artist explains: "there is tension between two notes, hard-to-define background information that at a closer look is found everywhere -- within the music of Coltrane and Stravinsky, death metal and 9th century Byzantine chants. If there is anything like a total, secret common ground, than it's this information lurking in the background. These are the Voices Of The Dead." This is an album that reaches far beyond the scope of today's dance music.
