The two techno producers will release a collaborative album in June on Stroboscopic Artefacts.
The project links together two well-known purveyors of experimentally-tinged techno. Speedy J, real name Jochem Paap, is a veteran producer whose celebrated career stretches back more than two decades. Lucy, AKA Luca Mortellaro, has gained relatively more recent renown as the mind behind Stroboscopic Artefacts, which is where Zeitgeber will come out.
According to a press release, Zeitgeber—the term translates loosely from German to "synchronizer"—has been in the works for 18 months, and it sees the duo "freed of dancefloor considerations" and focused on more abstract sound design. While Stroboscopic Artefacts has already issued full-length albums from Lucy himself as well as Xhin and Dadub, this one will be the first available on 2xLP vinyl (instead of CD), along with the usual digital formats. Like the rest of the label's output, Dadub will handle mastering duties.
