Head cinema with Kollektiv Turmstrasse

Back in September, I met up with friends from across the pond for Cocoon’s Green and Blue festival in Frankfurt. An ace time was had by all, but one of the highlights by far was experiencing the live sounds of German tech duo Kollektiv Turmstrasse. Yesterday, one of the friends who was with me at the event sent a pretty incredible KT mix my way, which has been on constant repeat ever since. What’s more, it’s simply too good not to share – so here we are.

Christian Hilscher and Nico Plagemann are the boys behind Kollektiv Turmstrasse, whose sound is influenced by the dub techno beats of Berlin record label Basic Channel. Of course, Hilscher and Plagemann have their own imprint too – Musik Gewinnt Freunde – and also run No-response.org, a site that focuses solely on offering free music downloads (and has a pretty cool design to boot). Rather than harp on about the artists and their projects myself, it seems fit to leave you to your own devices and let you make up your own mind (however, I still reserve the right to assume you’ll be quick to fall head over heels).

With that, here’s the mix itself which you can listen to, and of course download – all for the fine price of ‘free’. Music was made to be shared – much thanks goes out to the person who sent it my way. If you like it, be sure to pass it on too.
