German artist Errorsmith is one who needs little introduction; an independent spirit in electronic music, through projects like MMM – with Berghain resident Fiedel – and Soundhack as Smith’n’Hack.
The Berlin-based producer Erik Wiegand is also a tech wizard who’s created his own synth, named RAZOR, for Native Instruments. Indeed, this instrument shaped much of the sound on his 2017 album Superlative. The PAN release showcased the veteran’s playful take on techno – a contrast against the barrage of darker textures coming out of Berlin – which builds upon his ethos of listening to what’s fresh and current, constantly being aware of new releases.
His playlist for Crack Magazine reflects this mindset, with a track from Príncipe’s latest release – P.Adrix’s Álbum Desconhecido – and a track from producer Hyph11e on Shanghai label SVBKVLT. There’s still room for some of his own material too, with a cut from Superlative and his collaborative Protogravity EP with Mark Fell. Hit the play button below, and explore the contemporary dance cuts that comprise the German artist’s record collection – from the experimental sounds of Rian Treanor to M.E.S.H. and more.
Errorsmith plays Sónar, Barcelona, on 14-16 June
