Since his early days in the electronic music scene, Amsterdam’s Steve Rachmad, aka Sterac, has created a legion of monikers to cover his compositions’ variety and broadness. One of his most famous is Sterac which focusses on the deeper and more obscure end of the techno genre. With a huge discography already, Sterac releases have come on some of the most esteemed labels around including M-Plant, Tresor, Klockworks, Afterlife, Mote-Evolver, Indigo Aera, and Delsin.
Returning with an immaculate four-track record called “Numbers”, the EP kicks off proceedings with “Ghost 37”, a scintillating track that employs vacillating grooves, ominous synths and intricate mechanics before rolling smoothly into the sizzling follow up “Lost Track 22”. On the flip “Rey Fur 2.1” continues the energy with a high-impact clapper featuring bustling fx and expansive tones until “Tr-15” rounds off the EP with twisting synth flutters, rattling highs and hypnotic bass groves intricately unfolding underneath.
“Numbers” is out now digitally on Mote-Evolver and is available to pre-order on vinyl through Phonica.
