Impact on the techno sound is ever more relevant in Sleeparchive upcoming album entitled 'Trust' via Tresor.


If you were expecting something heavy and very courageous, i mean, straight and powerful techno, let me tell you that you just come exactly to the right place. You are about to meet someone whos minimal and techno credentials are in the top class, we are talking about Roger Semsroth, AKA Sleeparchive.

Sleeparchive has a very interesting history in the minimal, techno and experimental music scene, i would say a very complete career history. 

"He's released some of the finest minimalist dance music of the past decade, is part of the TR-101 duo with DJ Pete, worked at Hard Wax, the genre's most famous record shop. Has released Elephant Island, the debut 12-inch that inspired the formation of Sandwell District, one of the most important techno acts in recent history." But the most amazing fact in this artist  journey, is that he has always followed a deep intuition for experimentation in sound, wrapping club music around eerie microtonal motifs and industrial sensibilities.  

And the recent good news are that Sleeparchive's just delivered up a new work for Tresor that takes a step forward, as his first true techno album. The album has been entitled "Trust".  


"With this new album, Sleeparchive’s impact on the techno sound is ever more relevant. Awaking in constant locomotion, locked-in, unrelenting and dry. Sleeparchive’s churning loops etch visions of tight minimalism at times densely frenetic and others serenely galactic. This predilection continues throughout the four sides on the album, eschewing conventional arrangement styles with gradual probabilistic change. Tracks such as ‘Needle’ and ‘Peccant’ offer up precise, sinewy techno. ‘Leave’ recalls the Detroit sound of Terrence Dixon, with its cascading synth tones and droning atmospheres. The album closes with a different version of ‘Trust’ to that found on last year’s Revised Recordings EP released on Tresor, with its now-familiar nerve-inducing pizzicato strings even more at the fore with its mechanic delivery."

Don't miss the opportunity to start following this excellent artist in his new journey through pure techno music. Start by being tuned, and get this release that would come out in March 27th in 2LP and Digital formats through Tresor Records.

Listen to the first track of the LP entitled "Needle" that is already uploaded to Soundcloud. Read below for full details. 



Overview. Throughout his career, Roger Semsroth has followed a deep intuition for experimentation in sound, wrapping club music around eerie microtonal motifs and industrial sensibilities. This new work for Tresor takes a step forward, as the first true techno album from Sleeparchive, where his previous LPs have exhibited themselves more conceptually, or under different names and his Nord Vest label.
Semsroth has been active in electronic music since the late 90s. He received initial attention first for his electro productions under the alias Skanfrom and the 80s minimal synth inspired Television Set. These projects echoed his love for these sounds, which the East Berliner had steadily immersed himself with after the end of the GDR. Upon hearing the bleeps of Mika Vainio and Plastikman, he began to engage with his strain of techno. Over the last decade, he has focused on his Sleeparchive alias, which dates back to 2004. Alongside close friend DJ Pete, he performs live techno as TR-101. His relationship with Tresor began in 2011, first releasing the Ronan Point EP and following up with the crucial A Man Dies In The Street series in 2013.
