Gautham Garg brings some serious minimal 90s high energy Midwestern techno heat with his first vinyl release under his CRATAN alias.

Gautham already has many loop techno releases under his DECODER alias–including an upcoming release on AXIS RECORDS–that have earned him accolades from MATRIXXMAN, LUKE SLATER, and the like. He’s part of the new wave of young DJs and producers taking techno to its next no-bullshit crest. He runs ESP COLLECTIVE alongside MAX WATTS, tastefully curating their events and releases alike…techno fast, hard, and anxiously hypnotic.

On “Boulder” you’ll find two sides of minimal techno at its most delightful. On the A side you have “Secondary” and the title track “Boulder”. These two cuts of up-tempo, minimal hyphy techno a la 90s JEFF MILLS, JOEY BELTRAM, and ROBERT HOOD will really bring the stomp out. Switch to the B side, and “Paragon” brings the techno 4/4 speed with a cranked up reggaeton undercurrent. Then “Memo” closes out the EP with a  banger that would definitely fit snug in a BEN KLOCK Berghain set.

This is techno, and it’s moving fast. Keep up!
