Pantha Du Prince, one of the most successful artists in contemporary techno music, presents his new studio project together with Workshop's Stephan Abry: URSPRUNG. After several studio sessions in the cold winter of the Swiss Alps, Abry and Weber were driven deeper and deeper into some microcosm of sound. Influenced by Krautrock, the ambient music of Harold Budd and early Brian Eno, avant-garde, and the minimalistic guitar sound of Durutti Column, the URSPRUNG project makes the guitar a main source, coming together with highly futuristic sounds we already know from the world of Pantha Du Prince. A truly unconventional structure of slowly-growing beats holds this universe which came from the cold mountains together. It is not the first time the protagonists behind URSPRUNG have worked together -- they met some 10 years ago in Hamburg as the photographer and musician Abry worked on his Workshop project together with the artist Kai Althoff. Hendrik Weber was involved in the band Stella and both released on Hamburg's legendary Ladomat 2000 label. A frequent conversation, exchange of music and some sessions made them work on Pantha Du Prince tracks. Mostly recorded in that white-out background of the Alps, it was clear from the beginning that one day, a unique project would come forth. Now, URSPRUNG is here, so let us forget time and memory. Stephan Abry and Hendrik Weber have even wondered, "What is this? We actually don't know at all, but it is new and wonderful!" Produced and mixed by Tobias Levin (Tocotronic, Kante, Pantha Du Prince, Tied & Tickled Trio). Mastered by Rashad Becker.
