The two acid-loving producers will release their LP, Silent Cities, in May.
Mexican producer Gabo Barranco (AAAA) and the Vienna-based Johannes Auvinen (Tin Man) have a lot in common, with both artists making their names on hardware-based, acid-inflected dance music in recent years. Though their similar approaches "make this collaboration feel natural, even expected," the press release says, "Silent Cities is anything but."
The LP makes heavy use of classic acid house instrument the Roland TB-303, but the press release adds that the duo "arrive in new, mysterious territory this time out." Like most of Tin Man's recent material, Silent Cities will come via the newly Berlin-based label, Acid Test.
Before the LP's release in May, Acid Test will put out a remix EP on April 26th. That one features new versions of Silent Cities tracks from Auvinen and Barranco themselves, along with a rework of "Nostalgic Oblivion" from John Tejada.
