Wunderblock Band

About


    Experimental techno project Wunderblock was founded in 2008 in Moscow, Russia by Michael Teplov, also known from the late 90’s for his Ill Doggy project on Salo Records, Berlin, and as one half of Multipliar on the famous Cologne imprint Trapez. In 2008 Michael has teamed up with producers Igor Ivanov and Vladimir Kochenov to join forces in a creation of the unique Wunderblock sound – an eclectic mix of techno, dub and experimental electronica with a touch of ambience and a jazzy feel.

    During the last decade, Wunderblock has released a wide spectrum of music on such labels as Planet Rhythm, Children Of Tomorrow, FormResonance, Labrynth, Ketama Records, and more. In 2013 the team has decided to start its own imprint with more underground, darker techno sound. Thus Wunderblock Records was launched, and now it is among the most significant labels on the underground techno scene. The Label releases, digital and also vinyl, are regularly supported by top techno DJ’s worldwide.

    After a powerful debut in 2015 at Berlin's legendary Tresor Club, Wunderblock has launched the series of the Label Showcases in Berlin, Moscow, St.Petersburg, Nantes, and more.

Mangup is a mountain in Crimea, Ukraine. This is a local point of spiritual practice and, esoterically said, "a Place of Power". Wunderblock in collaboration with Michael Chernev a.k.a. Arcuation present a sound interpretation of their own spiritual experience on Mangup: an adventure from the hypnotic techno mover "Elle-Burun" (Hellenic Cape, turk.), through dubby breaks of "Curve Mirror" and "101", to the peak of the title track, "Mangup".

[WR001] Wunderblock - Red Oktober

WR001” Cover

Tracks:

  1. Red Oktober (Rumbadub)
  2. Wood People (Acrobdub)
  3. Red Oktober (Arcuation Dub)

Composed & produced by Igor Ivanov, Michael Teploff & Vladimir Kochenov.
Track 3 is remixed by Michael Chernev a.k.a. Arcuation.
Recorded at Principi Di Musica, Moscow, in 2013.
Mastered by Michael Hank in Berlin, Germany.
Artwork by Roman Sht. & Magicbelka.

Label: Wunderblock Records. Cat.No.: WR001. Format: Digital. Out 22 November 2013.

Red Oktober is related to the terrible and bloody events in Russia’s history – Great October Revolution (1917) and the subsequent Civil War. So the music of that EP shows those dark, disturbing and depressive moods that are coming around the Russian society nowadays too… Red Oktober (Rumbadub) is a dub techno monster with dark swirling textures and deep stomping bass drum. Wood People (Acrobdub) with its breaky dub techno beats and subliminal harmony continues to build the pressure. And the dub-ambient remix of Red Oktober by Arcuation (very talented but little-known producer Michael Chernev) is becoming the true psychedelic culmination of the EP.

Label: FormResonance. Cat.No.: FR018. Format: Digital. Out 01 October 2013.

Wunderblock comes up with a new single on FormResonance, including a remix of Chris Manura. After many gigs in Moscow they were special guests at the FormResonance Label Night at Ritter Butzke in Berlin. ESOD, title of this EP, reveals a kabbalistic discipline in the jewish tradition: it is the sephirah in the tree of life to translate spirituality, in order to unite man to God. Based on this path of unity, the three guys are starting its inspiration for their release: Wunderblock do create a constellation with a synergy of discrete synthetic sounds and classic jazz sonorities, getting as result four tracks of pure pleasure. Michael Teploff, Igor Ivanov and Vladimir Kochenov are the artists behind this project. A special mention deserves Chris Manura’s remix, giving his own vision with dark atmosphere and wide ambients wrapped together in a groove just perfect for the dancefloor.
