Summer 2013 will see the release of „Behind“, a brand new album by youAND:THEMACHINES aka Martin Müller - one half of youANDme - on the Ornaments imprint. As youANDme the pair have seen plenty of success with releases on labels like Cocoon, Rekids and Deeplabs. Their last mix-cd was hailed as one of the best of the year by DE:BUG and between them they have officially remixed influential artists like Moodymann, Seth Troxler, Radio Slave or Lawrence.

As is usually the case for this vinyl-loving outfit, the „Behind“ album has a limited to 333 copies hand-painted cover edition with unique artwork and a stamped number, and features vocal collaborations with seminal artists like Robert Owens, Brothers' Vibe, Delhia de France, Bajka and Keter Darker as well as instrumental contributions from Olga Kholodnaia who plays strings, Martin Kohlstedt who plays Rhodes and e-piano and solina strings from The Analog Roland Orchestra man, Michal Matlak.

„Behind“ is Martin’s long player debut on Ornaments and is an album that brings together his wide array of influences – dub techno, ambient, Detroit techno, house, but also encompasses plenty of analogue hardware, field recordings and hidden messages. The concept when writing the album was to use no samples and instead craft every sound himself.

Some of the equipment used through the album to lend it such a unique sonic signature includes Waldorf Microwave, Moog Voyager, Roland TR909, 808, 707, Alpha Juno and some MFB drumboxes amongst others. “The aim was to take these old instruments and combine them with modern techniques from 2013,” says Martin. “I wanted to make music that doesn’t loose the old spirit of yesteryear.”

The results make for an album that doesn’t follow trends but instead comes from deep inside the mind of the producer who made it. Inspired and influenced by more than 15 years of listening to electronic music, it is a truly cross genre work.

From the grainy dubwise ambiance of opener “Entrance” to the deep and lush techno of “Perception” and on through more intense and sinewy cuts like “Domain Specific” and the blissful, beatless, string laced excursion that is “Desire”, this is a record with lots of narrative; an album that really takes you somewhere. plenty of extra character also comes from the respective collaborators who each have their own distinctive voices, making „Behind“ a truly captivating work of art.
