Free techno? Newcomer State gives away ‘Congruence’ exclusively via Hyponik.
State is a 21 year old Southampton-based producer making techno that draws influence from dub through to UKG and artists such as Boddika and Skudge. His debut to vinyl coincides with Southampton club night No Logo‘s first foray into the world of releasing records. The 3 track self-titled EP of experimental techno has already picked up worthy support from the likes Dark Sky, BrEaCh, Paleman, Metrist and Rumah.
This 9-minute atmospheric saga isn’t groundbreaking, but demonstrates the scope of a young producer with a refined palette, heaps of technical ability and a keen ear for space and arrangement. One to watch, for sure.
The ‘State’ EP will be release on limited 12” vinyl white label on April 22nd. Head here for further info.
