Aufgang / Istiklaliya (INF0024)
In order to get lines of perspective moving, Aufgang transcend their instrumentarium. From this organic corpus, they manage to extract a hand-stitched, deeply human kind of music. This exhilarating craft builds bridges between disciplines, skilfully pulling together acoustics and electronics while making bold connections between different eras. Ancestral pianos are groovier than any sequencer, the synths they use are antediluvian and the drums are constantly oscillating between metal and skin. They may well be the first truly accomplished and unabashed explorers of the channel connecting various approaches which, so far, had at best only been piled up. Aufgang transcend the confines of time to bring the past back into the future.
