BAR 015 10

Porter Ricks, consisting of Thomas Köner and Andy Mellwig, produce ambient techno. Their music is like an nightly trip through a big city, where industrial buildings, citylights and underground pathways mold together into a hazy impression. A sublime mix of dark rhythms and a foggy atmosphere. With a radicalism that leaves you speechless, ‘Zebu’ contains repetitive, pulsating rhythms with an animalistic force. Transparent sound patterns float above the beats. Porter Ricks certainly contribute a new angle to techno music. Except for this release on Barooni, they have released their music on such labels as Force Inc and Chain Reaction.
