Not sure where to file this one because “minimal techno” doesn’t give you the full picture. Released this week, Young Alaska is filled with gorgeous minimal thumpers. Like Recondite, Christian Loffler has the ability to take the sparse “minimal techno” structure and fill it in with rich, warm ambiences and soft melodies. Sprinkled with the judicial use of vocals (see All Comes and Notes), Young Alaska displays a full sound that is aesthetically pleasing but filled with motion.
Young Alaska is released by Loffler’s own Ki Records. You can get it at BeatPort or iTunes Store.
