The experimental techno producer's next album is due out on Raster-Noton next month.
Real name David Letellier, Kangding Ray is a regular on Raster-Noton, having released all three of his past albums—Stabil, Automne Fold and OR—through the Berlin label. In the four years since OR was released he's put out a small number of EPs, including three records for Stroboscopic Artefacts and one for Raster-Noton.
Typically for both artist and label, a cerebral streak runs through the album, which was apparently recorded to form four arcs across its 12 track duration. "The different sequences are arranged seamlessly into dense, evolving compositions, while keeping their autonomy," a press release explains. The French-born, Berlin-based producer's signature brand of grainy, widescreen techno is on full display across Solens Arc, which will be released on double-vinyl and CD.
A teaser clip for album track "History Of Obscurity" is currently streaming via the YouTube player below:
02. The River
04. The River (Reprise)
05. Blank Empire

09. History of Obscurity

Raster-Noton will release Solens Arc on February 24th, 2014.
