During Amsterdam Dance Event we took the time to make it to Dockyard, a one-day festival complete with five massive stages housed in tents that sits somewhere between land and water, surrounded by shipping containers and cranes.
One of the stages was being hosted by Spanish techno record label PoleGroup, featuring some of the most exciting raw techno talent that could be found at ADE this year. Artists the caliber of Reeko, Oscar Mulero, Lewis Fautzi as well as Jonas Kopp and Pfirter all put on an impressive display that day, providing festival goers with a slice of hard-hitting techno that was mostly absent elsewhere at Dockyard with the exception of Surgeon and Lady Starlight at the Terminal One stage.
Jonas Kopp and Pfirter are an Argentinian duo that have been around for the better part of two decades now, finding their home in the dark cavern of broody, powerfully-driven techno that has made PoleGroup such a respected label worldwide. Today they are releasing a brand-new split EP entitled Seek, a six track musical journey that begins in space and travels to the dance floor, taking the listener on a trip filled with heavy kicks, profound ambient soundscapes and aggressive 909 sequences. You can stream the release below and find it for purchase via Bandcamp. We briefly caught up with the duo ahead of the release to discuss their work together and the collaborative elements that make them such a successful studio and DJ project.
