New Amsterdam based label Taped Artifact, founded by Kevin Arnemann and Daan Kemp, is ready to present its first release by label co-owner Kevin Arnemann himself. After over six years in the Dutch techno scene Kevin Arnemann is beginning a new chapter in his career. In addition to his own productions, Taped Artifact will feature releases from a selection of artists that think outside the box and are not confined by genre. The main focus for this label is to allow the artists to focus on incorporating aesthetics with atmospheric and profound sounds that will capture the attention of listeners around the world.
The first release comes from the young man Kevin Arnemann himself. His opener ‘Lumière’ is a robust dub techno cut full of atmosphere, lush open spaces and squelchy bass. ‘Røssaak’ is then a deep, involving track that opens on wide horizontal planes, with churning drums and icy hi hats, whilst ‘0011’ is even more striped back. Hugely textured and marbled with slithering pads, metallic little synth lines and spooky reverb, it’s a super heady, super slow motion techno trip. Known for his uncompromising techno sets, this release showcases Kevin’s deeper side by delivering three profound excursions.
