Only a couple of weeks ago, we reported on the return of Sam Barker and Andreas Baumecker (a.k.a. nd_baumecker) to the Berlin-based label, with the promise of a new 12" and album. Information on their upcoming full-length, Turns (which will join a back-catalog of two EPs, an album and almost 20 remixes), has just been shared by the imprint.
As ever, Barker & Baumecker's productions are anything but linear, ranging from techno to bass, breaks and experimental styles. The label have also emphasized that there is "nothing typical about any of these tracks," which are "thoughtful, rich, and ever evolving—but always and completely committed to the club."
Reflecting on the title of the album, Barker explained that the pair of them "have had quite a lot of ups and downs since the last record," making the point that "when you're in a collaboration where you only work together in real-time, in person, both people need to be in the right frame of mind."
Turns will hit stores November 25 on vinyl, CD and digital formats. Pre-order it at Bandcamp. Stream a teaser clip below.
