    Stream FULL album: https://fanlink.to/LitAoM Picking up where 2018's debut album left off, Pleasurekraft continue their foray into the Cosmic Techno sub-genre they ushered into the dance music lexicon, with their new LP "Love in the Age of Machines." Arriving exclusively on Spotify initially on April 10, with other streaming platforms to follow a week later, Pleasurekraft had one of  the biggest tracks last year on Drumcode with their remix for Adam Beyer's 'Space Date,' always bring forward thinking grooves embellished with astral melodies and spaced out synths that make for emotional as well as physical experiences.  "Love in the Age of Machines" is in no short supply of the sonic signatures the production duo have become known for, and there is a clear maturation at work here.  The album's non-techno tracks showcase an artistry rarely seen in conventional dance music and techno in particular. From the gritty dystopian future that establishes the album's themes at the onset in "Last Sapien", to the dark, rainy, urban-lit textures that form the spine of "Nostalgic for the Future", there is a sense of impending self-wrought catastrophe, tempered with a sense of wonder of all that is, and all that could be if humanity somehow overcomes its hubris.  Things get more intense and turbulent on "Panopticon (The Patron Saint of Global Surveillance)" [ft. Thomas Gandey] before the voyage to the edges of our galaxy continues on "I Sing the Body Electric" & "Main Sequence" which keep up the enthralling techno atmospheres with increasing pressure, before the tension is released with the cinematic grandeur of "Novacene." Two more hard hitting bangers in "At the Mountains of Madness" and "Primordial" then rebuild the all consuming techno mood before you're left adrift in the cosmos with the album's swan song "Requiem For the American Dream." As Kaveh Soroush of Pleasurekraft puts it, "Without sounding too reductionist, humans are simply a bundle of biochemical algorithms with a few holes at either end, who mistake their sensory experiences as objective, and their sense of self as something concrete, when in fact science reveals to us with each new finding that our basic intuitions about reality and the world around us have not evolved much from our first ancestors, who just wanted to make sure not to get eaten for long enough to feed and procreate on the African savannah. While there are certainly wonders about the Cosmos we have discovered given our enlarged frontal lobes, and technologies that we've invented dating back to when the first tool was built thanks to an opposable thumb, we haven't been the best custodians of the only planet that can sustain us, and history makes it abundantly clear that our wisdom lags far behind the technological advancements we develop with each new day." Despite the overtly pessimistic tone, ultimately there is a sense of potential change on the horizon. That perhaps a species which has come up with abstract ideas of love, justice, liberty, and created works of immense artistic and scientific beauty, might just find a way to correct course before it's too late. This sense of wonder is on full display on "The Occupant" and the potential seed for our enlightenment is planted in "Corpse Reviver Number 3", a track brimming with homages to the love of philosophy and its place in navigating a more examined life.   Ultimately "Love in the Age of Machines" feels like a dystopian sci-fi soundtrack written for optimists who want to change humanity's looming fate.  While still firmly rooted in the techno genre, the album evokes themes and ideas that are universal to the human experience and our place in the Cosmos, and it is this aspect of the album that makes "Love in the Age of Machines" such a rewarding musical experience.  It's techno that is at once accessible and intelligent, a combination rarely heard in today's endless sea of dance music.

This sense of wonder is on full display on "The Occupant" and the potential seed for our enlightenment is planted in "Corpse Reviver Number 3", a track brimming with homages to the love of philosophy and its place in navigating a more examined life.   Ultimately "Love in the Age of Machines" feels like a dystopian sci-fi soundtrack written for optimists who want to change humanity's looming fate.  While still firmly rooted in the techno genre, the album evokes themes and ideas that are universal to the human experience and our place in the Cosmos, and it is this aspect of the album that makes "Love in the Age of Machines" such a rewarding musical experience.  It's techno that is at once accessible and intelligent, a combination rarely heard in today's endless sea of dance music.

    Stream FULL album: https://fanlink.to/LitAoM Picking up where 2018's debut album left off, Pleasurekraft continue their foray into the Cosmic Techno sub-genre they ushered into the dance music lexicon, with their new LP "Love in the Age of Machines." Arriving exclusively on Spotify initially on April 10, with other streaming platforms to follow a week later, Pleasurekraft had one of  the biggest tracks last year on Drumcode with their remix for Adam Beyer's 'Space Date,' always bring forward thinking grooves embellished with astral melodies and spaced out synths that make for emotional as well as physical experiences.  "Love in the Age of Machines" is in no short supply of the sonic signatures the production duo have become known for, and there is a clear maturation at work here.  The album's non-techno tracks showcase an artistry rarely seen in conventional dance music and techno in particular. From the gritty dystopian future that establishes the album's themes at the onset in "Last Sapien", to the dark, rainy, urban-lit textures that form the spine of "Nostalgic for the Future", there is a sense of impending self-wrought catastrophe, tempered with a sense of wonder of all that is, and all that could be if humanity somehow overcomes its hubris.  Things get more intense and turbulent on "Panopticon (The Patron Saint of Global Surveillance)" [ft. Thomas Gandey] before the voyage to the edges of our galaxy continues on "I Sing the Body Electric" & "Main Sequence" which keep up the enthralling techno atmospheres with increasing pressure, before the tension is released with the cinematic grandeur of "Novacene." Two more hard hitting bangers in "At the Mountains of Madness" and "Primordial" then rebuild the all consuming techno mood before you're left adrift in the cosmos with the album's swan song "Requiem For the American Dream." As Kaveh Soroush of Pleasurekraft puts it, "Without sounding too reductionist, humans are simply a bundle of biochemical algorithms with a few holes at either end, who mistake their sensory experiences as objective, and their sense of self as something concrete, when in fact science reveals to us with each new finding that our basic intuitions about reality and the world around us have not evolved much from our first ancestors, who just wanted to make sure not to get eaten for long enough to feed and procreate on the African savannah. While there are certainly wonders about the Cosmos we have discovered given our enlarged frontal lobes, and technologies that we've invented dating back to when the first tool was built thanks to an opposable thumb, we haven't been the best custodians of the only planet that can sustain us, and history makes it abundantly clear that our wisdom lags far behind the technological advancements we develop with each new day."

    BUY / STREAM NOW (all platforms): https://fanlink.to/aadB Against a Dark Background – the full-length studio album from long-standing British techno duo, Spektre – will be released in early 2020 on Pleasurekraft’s esteemed Kraftek imprint. Following their critically-acclaimed debut album Casting Shadows Without Light in 2010 and their sophomore outing Cyclic Operations in 2013, Against a Dark Background will be the third studio long-player from partners Paul Maddox and Rich Wakley, who have been producing together under the Spektre moniker since 2006. Currently in the top five-selling techno artists worldwide and with over 500,000 streams per month on Spotify, Spektre have taken the electronic music world by storm over the past few years, with their forward-thinking productions and high- intensity live performances resonating with legions of loyal techno fans across all corners of the globe. Now key ambassadors for British dance music on a global level, Spektre’s chart- topping productions have received high praise from the likes of Adam Beyer, Carl Cox, Pleasurekraft and Alan Fitzpatrick and the duo are often hailed as one of the most exciting acts to emerge onto the UK techno scene over the past decade. Talking about the forthcoming album, Spektre commented: It had been over 5 years since the release of "Cyclic Operations" when we first started work on the new album in earnest, so we wanted it to be a representation of how our music has evolved in that intervening period. The writing process itself was a lot more reductive than the previous two albums. We holed ourselves up for a few months and hammered out loads and loads of ideas, then filtered and refined the pool through playing them out and getting feedback from a few trusted pairs of ears, until "Against a Dark Background" began to crystallize into its final form. Spektre – Against a Dark Background will be released in early 2020 on Kraftek.
