One of the most lucrative operators around DJ Stingray turns in a fine example of his legendary DJ sets for Tresor's Kern series. Across its twenty-seven track duration Kern 4 shows why Stingray is such a revered selector, breakneck speed cut and paste electronics from AFX, Dopplereffekt, Silent Servant his own NRSB-11 project with Gerald Donald and Penélope melted together to make a serious hi-tech mix of electro technoscience.
In Stingray's hands, the tracks on Kern 4 take on a serious new lease of life, tracks that may sound like straight up 4x4 bangers in another DJ's set here are crafted into futuristic vehicles that seem to float weightlessly with a relentless fwd thud. Pulling out absolute storms from Christopher Joseph, Herva, Gesloten Cirkel, classics from Professor X and of course Drexciya, who's Grava 4 highlight Cascading Celestial Giants ends the mix in true Stingray style by leaving us asking more questions than we have had answered.
An immense journey into the deepest unknown.
