The Berlin-based producer is set to release his first album under his own name later this year.
Older electronic music fans may be more aware of his melodically maximal tech-house as Smash TV on Ellen Allien's BPitch Control, but nowadays Zilske is focusing on producing more subtle minimally-inclined pieces for imprints such as Leena, Battle and Playhouse. It's the latter label that will host his first album as Holger Zilske, which is simply titled Holz.
Zilske's hardcore followers will be glad to know that the album is composed of ten previously unreleased tracks, allowing them to treat the album as a singular listening experience. Surprisingly, the album even features two vocal contributions from syrup-voiced Swedish singer August Landelius on "Golden" and "Have A Cup Of This." Apart for the vocals, though, Zilske's hallmarks are all present, so you can expect skippy beats, eerie sounds and modulations aplenty when the record drops in May.
