- Altstadt Echo


In the last three years, Altstadt Echo has accomplished what most up-and-coming artists only talk about: a handful of vinyl and cassette releases, performances at respected clubs and festivals like Tresor, Griessmuehle, and Movement Detroit, and the curation of an event series - Modern Cathedrals presents Eden - that has become a fixture of local underground culture. His musical signature combines lamenting and ethereal atmospheres with eroded, broken-beat percussion. Drawing inspiration from Absurdist literature, Altstadt Echo imbues his music with somber reflection on the process of trying to create meaning in modern life. He's been remixed by electronic music leaders across the world - from Erika and Terrence Dixon in Detroit to Anthony Linell and Varg in Europe. He's been called "Detroit techno's new guard" by Resident Advisor, "the avant-garde element to Detroit Techno" by SPIN Magazine, and "one of Detroit's fastest rising electronic music names" by the Detroit Free Press. His tracks have been featured on Regis mixtapes, written-up by Resident Advisor, and sold out at Hardwax.
