Brendon Moeller, also known as the echologist, is a key figure in the techno scene we love. He has been distilling his trippy spaced out repetitive dub beats on many iconic labels for many years. A friend of the Knotweed family since the start, Brendon created this four tracker especially for us, developing further his own vision of techno, while respecting the aesthetic of the label. Thank you so much Brendon for your support throughout the years, long live the echologist!
We are celebrating 10 years of Knotweed Records, exploring different shades of techno.

As part of Knotweed's ten-year celebrations, Echologist aka Brendon Moeller delivers a dynamic dub techno workout. "Knot Safe" revolves around mesmerising chords that swirl and sway over a stepping, metallic rhythm, while on "Dub Knot", Moeller goes into a more abstract direction, with glitchy percussion underpinning warped samples and reverberating effects. "Knot Twist" sees the veteran producer push farther in this experimental direction, as brooding tones and muffled vocals conjure up a hypnotic soundscape, while on "Double Knot", he makes a return of sorts to the dance floor, as doubled up beats and a broken rhythm support layer upon layer of hypnotic tones.
