Archeology Exc. 1
9th February 2011
With techno currently enjoying a peak in popularity it is all too easy to get caught up in the clamor for what is new and next. Who is the latest star producer to emerge as the leader of the pack? What boundary-blurred sub-genre is currently hot for the tastemaker DJ elite? Which label will be next to be showered with plaudits for forging a path at the vanguard of scene? Where will be the next location to be home to nomadic artists and branded as the new Mecca of techno? In amongst this frenzied crystal ball gazing most observers, consumers, critics and commentators have their eyes an ears so firmly fixed on the horizon that they seldom have chance to reflect on the history of those producers who have been integral in the development of techno over the previous twenty years.
Inspired by a desire to retrace the steps that led to the current musical alignment of the producers assembled on their label roster, Cari Lekebuschâ€™s H-Productions have commissioned an eight part series of compilations that will explore the techno archeology of their artists. Each collection will delve deep into their back catalogue, unearthing long-forgotten and undiscovered examples of their work and tracks from other producers that were landmarks within their own evolution. Lovingly compiled and carefully constructed, H-Productions Archeology Excavations series will describe the story of how each producer made their journey from then to now; documenting the tracks each artist feels were instrumental in shaping their own history within techno music.
H-Productions have been releasing their distinctive brand of ever-so-slightly left-of-centre techno since 1994 with Lekebuschâ€™s own discography dating back even further. This compilation brings together nineteen tracks from the early years of Lekebuschâ€™s distinguished career with releases dating back to 1992. In addition to landmark Lekebusch productions such as Mad Poet, Ej Till Forsaljning and Unite there are many tracks produced under Lekebuschâ€™s Fred, Mr. Barth, Crushed Insect and Rubberneck aliases plus collaborative works with Jesper DahlbÃ¤ck (Drumtravellers), Ron Maney and Gene Hunt; all of which were originally released on cult techno imprints like SVEK, Missile, and Proper N.Y.C, or re-mastered/unreleased projects H-Productions archive.
