When this type of techno comes out, there’s always the line between what feels “sufficient” to put out as a release and what actually feels like something that needs to be released.

The difference between the two has in recent time resulted in, unfortunately, “we need to just release” – a stream of output that in some sense is fun and interesting to follow, to digitally cratedig and going to the stores to listen to them. What gets lost along the way though, is the momentum every artist and label actually has with their initial release, the release that will somehow put out the path of it’s sonic and atmospehric artistry.

What at first might sound as “just another one of those records”, which has as a phrase become somewhat overused due to the unprecise ears of a few, the attention to rhythmic details strikes Maskin Ljud as a producer knowing what works and what doesn’t; with the paradox of releasing tracks that actually works very well on the floor might not suffice for others.

‘Den Första Färden’ is the first release from the new label ‘Färden’. Featuring a swedish artist by the name Maskin Ljud, the ‘Färden’ label puts out three tracks that follow a structure set out a long time ago; but doing it with a fresh style.

As the A-side really is the highlight of the record, ‘Kombinerad Syra’ and ‘Filtrerad Melodi’ does not act as fillers, its just that they deserve a different momentum than ‘Metro X01’ on the A side.

With a sound that goes broad comes the advantage of being suitable for many djs and listeners, which is something that in this case is entierly good.
