Oliver Huntemann is a wizard when it comes to creating stripped-down, yet powerful techno. Arrangement is key for the Hamburg native, and each new record he creates succeeds in its mission to entrance listeners.
He takes things in a sinister direction with “Rotlicht,” where deep, pounding kicks complement an array of tense synth layers. Post-break, the piece explodes into heavy techno, still minimal, yet constructed in a way that provides ultimate impact. Raxon also beefs up the original as the single’s official remixer.
“Rotlicht” is the first single off Huntemann’s forthcoming album Propaganda, to be released in October on his Senso Sounds imprint. Judging by the track’s quality, the album will likely prove Huntemann’s ability to take listeners on a proper journey through a long-player medium.
