Marcel Fengler recently released the final part of IMF10, a three-part compilation series detailing the past, present, and future of his label Index Marcel Fengler (IMF)
IMF10 is a collection of exclusive originals and remixes created by some of electronic music’s most skilled producers, alongside contributions from rising talents who are set to shape the direction of the label for years to come. Each volume consists of six tracks and encapsulates a different tone, aimed to highlight not only the versatile sonic constellation of the label but also the breadth Fengler enjoys exploring in his DJ sets.
Part one explores deeper and more hypnotic territory, as Alva Noto makes his debut for IMF re-working the Fengler classic "Sphinx," alongside a new contribution from DIN, the collaborative project between Fengler and Efdemin—a welcome return with the project after a three-year hiatus. Elsewhere, friends Matrixxman (in collaboration with producer Riccardo Limiti) and Lucy also join the compilation alongside Scuba with a rework courtesy of his SCB project, plus a new track from Slovenian's Blaukoma. Part two, meanwhile, focuses on the warmer and more soulful side of IMF and features an array of artists making their debut for the label.
Part 3 focuses on the tougher end of the techno spectrum and features Marcel Fengler’s first original production in two years, a rare offering from Sebastian Kramer (a.k.a Redshape), a prized Luke Slater re-work of Thomas Hessler, Peter Van Hoesen, and also AVION, who delivers "Angel Ruts."
Born at the Baltic sea, AVION played his first gigs at the young age of 15 around his hometown Rostock and the surrounding cities Hamburg and Schwerin. His productions and DJ sets feature a melancholic warmth while playfully exploiting industrial sounds, straight rhythms, and noises. "Angel Ruts" is no different: a straight-up industrial techno track for peak-hours madness.
