From Colliding Contours

“Getting deeper into the world of modular systems introduced us to new ways of creating music,” say Driftmachine, the Berlin duo of Andreas Gerth (Tied And Tickled, The Notwist) and Florian Zimmer (Lali Puna, iso68, Saroos). These systems give them the means to work new forms of music from the different genres they’re individually drawn to. Their 2014 debut LP Nocturnes was inspired by the way they hear the music discussed in Alex Ross’s book The Rest Is Noise. Their new vinyl LP Colliding Contours sees Driftmachine drawing their musical geometries from dub, jazz and industrial techno lines.
