A consistent favorite at XLR8R HQ, Berlin techno institution Ostgut Ton has its first album release of the year already in the pipeline, the second solo full-length by renowned DJ/producer/sound engineer Tobias Freund (a.k.a. Tobias.). The 10-track A Series of Shocks will arrive on March 31 (roughly three years after his debut LP), and is said to "[take] us ever further into the purist, evolving sonic world of Tobias." across "sixty-one-and-a-half minutes of inventive, contemporary electronic music." Soon after the record's release, a launch party will be held at Berghain on April 5, featuring a live performance from Tobias., Peter Van Hoesen, Margaret Dygas, and more. The tracklist and artwork for A System of Shocks can be found below, while a quick Q&A with Freund is available over on Resident Advisor.
