Live techno titans Factory Floor are back with a new album, 25 25. Listen to first single Dial Me In now
Factory Floor may have lost a drummer but that’s not stopping the techno two-piece from bring their brand of live electronica to the masses – they’re back with a brand new album 25 25. The album builds on their patented club-not-club stomp with the help of FKA twigs / Caribou producer David Wrench, and the first track the band have shared, Dial Me In, is the first recorded output of the band since they revealed their new stripped-back line-up of Gabe Guernsey and Nik Void.
“Being openly progressive has always been the Factory Floor way, be it via improvisational live shows, early Blast First releases, DFA reworks, or open studio collaborations and residencies,” said Void about the band’s new direction in a press release. Going on to speak about the new track, he said: “Dial Me In was the first track Gabe and I wrote together for this record. At this time we were both exploring new set ups – some unfamiliar gear like modular systems, as well as various machines combined with regular old stuff like my Roland sampler, live drums and effected live vocals.
Our shows between 2014-2015 were steadily moving towards late night club stompers, and gradually our tools were becoming more and more mobile within two Peli cases wheeled across the continent. We were forever testing out changing sets from one place to the next. This single is all about transition, adjustment and transparency – something we needed to get out there so that dots can be joined and the next page can be turned ready for 25 25.”
The album is coming out on James Murphy’s DFA Records on 19 August and is available for pre-order now. In the meantime, listen to Dial Me In below.
